Today is day 1. Well actually last night was day .5! Anyways, i will be running the recommended dose ofand for 30 days min. If i feel like it is having a significant impact i will continue for another 30 day cycle and if not then it will be done in 30 days.
A little background on me (ill make it short and sweet):
Ive been "going to the gym" for about 4 years now. Made minimal overtraining progress for about 2 of those years. About 2 years ago i finally got on a steady routine with my old lifting partner and he put me under his wing as far as nutrition and rest goes. After about 10lbs i decided to start strength training and was doing GOMAD. I got up to a 335 squat, 405 deadlift and 205 bench @ 180lbs. I gained alot of fat but my strength was increasing. I took acutane just after reaching 180 and i nearly broke my body trying to lift heavy and take this terrible drug thats notorious for killing joints. In just a few short months i dropped all the way to 155 @ 6'1 and stayed there until about last may.
I got back on the horse and from may to September i bulked from 155 to 175 (i have pics on request) with almost no body fat gain from muscle memory YES IT DOES HAPPEN!
The last few weeks my life has flipped upside down. I broke up with my gf of 9 months (one of the reasons i stopped lifting), changed a lot of things about my lifestyle, and opened new doors to my life. One of which is the freedom to train on my time, and money for my diet, two things completely torn from me from my ex.
Now back to the training. If there was one thing ive learned from the 25pound weight loss, and back up from the bulk, it is how to diet and to train a muscle correctly. I will be presuing dorian yates type training while bulking as hard as possible to meet my goals.
Goal weight in 4 weeks: 185
Goal weight in 8 weeks: 192
Goal by end of bulk: 200
Ive had a dream of weighing 200lbs since i was a kid. But never have i gotten close. This winter i will spend bulking as hard as possible in my hoodie not worrying about the fat gain. I am a skinny guy at heart (as you can tell from 6'1 150 from not lifting and eating fast food) and i need all the help i can get naturally.
