Well my workout today was unorthodox for me to say the least. I am out of town at family's house for thanksgiving so no equipment for todays workout. It was basically an all body weight routine. Did pistol squats (which totally kicked my ass), pushups, lateral raises using some water bottles for reps lol, inverse rows hanging under a table, and burpees. Even though its not an ideal workout for me I think the high volume was kind of a shock. My chest and tris were super pumped after the pushups! I can't really comment on whether or not it was a better than normal workout since I haven't really done anything like that before. It seemed like I had pretty good endurance though.
I am also definitely looking bigger as almost all of my family commented on my size. To be fair some of them haven't seen me in quite a while though. I won't be weighing in again until I get back to the gym on Mon. I'm not going to bother weighing myself on a different scale as they might be slightly different in their readings.
Other than that, Im feeling great! Very Alpha! Muscles feel hard and pumped all of the time!

26 days in today.
It was great getting back into the gym today! I am definitely noticing some strength/endurance increases now. Since I have started doing AMRAP sets for my third set I have been able to increase weight as well as reps each workout! For my upper body lifts I go up 2.5 lbs per workout and 5 lbs for lower body. My bench amrap sets have gone up by one rep each workout while also increasing the weight! Very happy with that! Overhead press I have been able to add the weight and maintain the same number of reps. Good stuff there too!
As far as weight gain, it surprised me today. I am only up 5 lbs from the start, which is not much more than I think I would have gained without the bulk up. Whatever though, I am happy with the strength/endurance gains!
Overall I haven't experienced any negative sides and have been feeling really good!

Glad to hear you are experiencing the benefits of BULK-UP. One possible reason that weight gain may have stalled is perhaps since you have gained weight that you are now eating at maintenance. What I mean is if you are eating the same calories that you were when you weighed 5lbs less perhaps increasing the calories will restart the weight gain. It only stands to reason that as you gain weight the calories will have to continually be increased if one wishes to continue to gain. Just an idea.

29 Days In
Well, today was a little depressing.... I counted up how many caps I have left and I only have another 9 days worth left.
Yesterdays workout was a bit of a let down, I had to get a tetanus shot the day before and I dont know if i just had a bad reaction or something but I could hardly lift my arm without my shoulder (where I got the shot) screaming. Because of the pain I took things a little easier than normal. It is feeling better today, so I am excited about tomorrows workout. Hopefully tomorrows workout will have some PRs set!!
I will weigh in again tomorrow at the gym and post up weight gain.
I have still not had any negative side effects. My libido also seems completely normal, not up or down...

Wooaahhh! Sorry for the lack of updates! Life got crazy busy for a bit there!
Today marks day 34 of Bulk-Up. I only have 4 more days worth of pills left.
My dosing throughout the run was 4 caps for the first day, day 2-14 dosed 6 caps/day, and from day 15 on I have been dosing 7 caps/day.
So far I have been enjoying my run with Bulk-Up. I have not experienced any negative side effects at all and have had some decent strength/mass gains. I think I went into this cycle expecting too much and was a little let down at first. The more I think about things though it has been a nice mild cycle. I expect that the gains will be very easy to maintain, and I have definitely been making better progress than I would have without the Bulk-Up.
As of yesterday, my weight is up 7 lbs. Not a huge increase in weight, but it seems to be pretty lean gains.
My strength and endurance have been great. I have broken more than a few PRs during this cycle.
One of my favorite parts of the cycle has been the feeling out of the gym though actually. I just feel good. Kinda cocky, like I could take on the world. My muscles always feel really hard and slightly pumped. I think this is what I will miss the most after this cycle.
I will post up a more detailed final review on Sunday.
Thanks to those of you who have been following along and sharing advice and input!

7 lbs is pretty good for a 5 week run with no sides. Good job man!
My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

Well done! Gains like yours are exactly what I'd expect from a cycle of BULK-UP!
Life is nothing but big macs and hoes.

You mean to tell me you don't like painful back pumps, hard suppression of the HTPA, sky high blood pressure, wildly fluctuating estrogen post cycle, grey market pct drugs, trashed lipid levels on cycle and stressed livers? Well sir I never.......I kid. The ease of use and as we see the still concrete gains are what makes these true prohormones such a nice option to have. Methyls have their place, I have used and will again I am sure but having multiple smooth cycles with maybe one harsh one a year is a nice option.

When used responsibly and with proper assist it's not as common as people think. In my experience and research I've noticed you are either able to run them or your not.
