    absolutely.
    you may be in unique position to compare the two compounds..the only problem is, you were basically getting saturated w/ 1-andro, so you'll prolly feel 1-alpha like immediately or something..the two would be better compared in solo runs.


  2. If the conversion is better with the 1 alpha would it be wise to dose lower than the 1 Andro? Or stick with 2 and 2

  3. i would stick with same dose.

  4. Sounds good.

  5. quick recap of yesterdays workout:

    Barbell bench 135x10,5,5 185x5,5, 225x5,5 275x3, 315x2(with 2 board) 335xfail twice 2 board
    My sticking point is driving me nuts
    incline barbell bench (stop short of lockout) 185x10,185x10,185x10,135x12
    Decline barbell bench 185x12, 185x12, 185x12
    Dumbell decline fly supersetted with decine db bench 45'sx10,45'sx10, 45xs10
    Dips 15,20,15,15

    Triceps
    rope pushdown 95x15x4
    smith jm presses 185x12x4

    Ended with face pulls to help keep bench form tight/ease shoulder stiffnes/soreness

    Sides/things to note:
    I snapped at work ysterday and launched a phone at a wall. My job requires me to use the phone alot with overseas brokers, in the airfreight business this gets extremely frustrating as you attempt to meet deadlines ect. When they speak poor english and use hyperspeed dialect with a chinese accent it phocking gets to me. I throw my phone on a regular basis here.

    Yesterday I was so livid my face turned bright red and i began to sweat immediately, it was weird but awesome simaltaneously. If i could channel that rage in the gym I would be GOLDEN

  6. Whats up guys, here with another update:
    yesterday was legs:
    Squats sumo to 7 in box 135x5x3, 225x5x3, 135x5
    Machine squats(some kind of plate loaded squat machine my buddy has) 290x10,290x10, 380x5, 290x8
    Leg curls 75x10,85x8,85x8,75x10
    leg extensions 125x20,135x20,135x20

    Seated calf raises supersetted with standing calf press ( 90x12x3 seated, 200x10x3 standing)

    Sides: mild acne,irratability.
    Ive been fairly anxious as well lately, lot of crap going on with work, job search, family and I woke up to a call from my girlfriend this morning in tears on her way to the hospital. Seems shes having some sort of appendix issue, most likely going to have it removed. I know its not serious but it sucks because im 3 hours away and cant do jack chitt.

    Positives are recovery between sets, strength, and body composition is changing rather nicely. Weighed in at 205 this morning. thats +3 with a substantial decrease in bf%

    very nice.

  8. Maybe just a tad of agression haha People were looking at me like i was nuts, thinking back i probably looked like a crazy person

  9. Whats up yall, Another day down another back workout crushed , quick overview
    Went to a quick fit in weirton WV - This place was PHOCKING AWESOME, its set in the basement of a strip mall with 6 seperate rooms connected by small tunnels/hallways. Kinda hard to describe but it was loaded i mean loaded with kick arse gear and it was grungey enough to keep the fairies out. Bumper plates, log press bars, resistance bands bolted to the floor, all kindzz of chainzz and forza benches. I WAS IN HEAVEN. and the best part is it was FREE 99.

    anywho heres a quick overview of my workout:
    Deads dynamic sets of 3 135, 225,225,225,315,315,315,315(su mox2) - Im trying to nail down my form. (my lower back was thrashed after this )
    Pull ups wide grip 10,10,10,10
    DB rows-high pull 100x15,100x15,100x15
    neutral grip lat pulldown 140x12,160x10,160x10
    T bar pulldown 160x12,180x10,180x10
    Snatch grip deads from 2 bumper plates(I was not trying to pull from the floor) 225x12x2

    Biceps:
    Hamer Strength preacher curl, single arm 55x10,55x10,45x12
    seated db curls 40x12,40x12,40x10
    cross body hammer curls 50x12,60x10,50x10

    In all a great workout, I felt like a monster. Pumps were pretty intense as was my aggression and pace.
    Sides: Night sweats still, waking up once a night but its nothing horrible.

  10. snags you think the night sweats are a estrogen related side?
    I have a bottle of arimistane on hand.

    no i don't think it's estrogen-related side.
    i'd hold off on the arimistane for now, but that's your choice.
    (had them sweats last night again myself)

  12. It just aggrevates me, its always at like 3 am

    i know my man..sux for sure.
    i always look at it as a positive tho - means something is working well.

  14. True that my brother!

  15. Weekend update: Today marks the end of week three. and let me say that this stuff has really kicked into gear and I am most pleased. Actually im elated I feel PHOCKING PHENOMINAL. Some positives to note are aggression, mood, pumps, vascularity, and STRENGTH. I feel dense as a brick and this is without a doubt the most solid i have ever felt. I have veins that start in what seems like my fingertips that crawl to my shoulders and its pretty cool. Most vascular i have ever been. I set two pr's this weekend and this is what I am most happy about. I benched 225 for 24 reps after working up to 275 for 10. My previous best was 16. I then proceeded to deadlift 455x2 with no straps chalk or belt. To be honest i felt like i could have ripped the platform off the floor. My grip failed on my right hand due to some fatigue from bowling the night before.

    In summary i got 5 weeks of mayhem ahead. LFG!!

    yessir, great update!

  17. good day to those of you following, quick update:
    I have begun doing the westside barbell PL training method, I am actively going to pursue entering a powerlifting competition.
    I have come to this decision after about 3 years of BB style hypertrophy based training. I enjoy the PL atmosphere and workouts over the bodybuilding's and I also find it to be more self rewarding. I think that ultimately I would like to be 'for go and not for show". I may switch back to the bodybuilding after my competition (if i find one). I intend to continue to eat as if Im on a clean bulk because I find that to be a healthy diet. I will probably consume more carbs to restore and maintain energy levels. Also I am going to make my best conscious effort to stay well conditioned and not go the way of what everyone assumes a powerlifter looks like. I think that ultimately I would rather looke a Konstantin Konstantinovs or a Stan Efferding(not in bb competition shape) Rather than a npc guy. Im not saying I will achieve these physiques as the guys I listed are
    MONSTERS but its something to shoot for right? along with a 900 lb deadlift haha.

    Anyways away from that stuff on to yesterdays workout:
    It was a max effort Bench day where you work up to a 1rm and you should shoot to compete three sets at or above 90% of your 1rm.
    I had a 1rm of 315 prior to this workout*
    135x5,185x5,225x5,275x3,295x3, 315x3,335x1,315x3- as you can see my 1rm went up to 335 which is a new PR. hitting 315 felt like cake compared to previous weeks. This alone was awesome!!!

    Next was a triceps exercise intended to be low stress, high volume
    I chose the hamer strength dip machine and loaded it with 185 lbs
    I completed 4 sets of 15 repetitions

    I followed this with another low stress shoulder movement
    I chose db front raises- I used 35's and completed 4 sets of 12-15

    Next in the workout is a upper back movement, I chose face pulls
    I used a light weight 70lbs and did 4 sets of 15

    ON the max effort day all of the assistance type movements are meant to be low stress, and on dynamic days high stress. Some may do it differently but accoring to what Jim Wendler has written thats the way to go.

    I finished with abs(roman chair and knee raises) and neck(did some simple neck movements) - I woke up with a tension headache from this i assume.

    Pros: Strength continues to rise, body composition is changing favorably, Pumps in the gym hit extremely fast and last longer than before, Increased vascularity, and more drive in the gym.

    Sides: A bit of lethargy. I noticed I feel much more fatigued when I lay down or recline on a couch. My appetite is Ravenous-this is not a bad side for me I likes me some food.

    Today is the last day of my second bottle of 1-andro and tommorrow I switch to 1-alpha. It is also an off day Friday I will be doing a dynamic squad/dead day with the incorporation of biceps- westside bb does not include any direct bicep work.

    how bout mariusz.

    congrats man!

    I finished with abs(roman chair and knee raises) and neck(did some simple neck movements) - I woke up with a tension headache from this i assume.
    i would guess you to be right..other issue that immediately comes to mind is hydration level, but i think you nailed it.

  19. Yes indeed, mariusz is also a great example. The neck thing was waslily resolved with 2 advil.

  20. Quick question regarding pct, after 8 weeks Im gonna start RC liquid tamox, daa, and ad3 Im curious as how I should dose the tamox
    20/20/10/10 or a lower dose? The DAA will be 3g a day also. Still trying to figure out when to start the ad3. I will most likely be adding anabeta as well.

  21. tamox dosing looks fine, if not overkill.
    you'd prolly be all right with a 3-week run of 20/10/5 imo.
    start the ad3 when you start tamox, or optionally the second week in on tamox..
    start the daa either in last week of stack, or immediately post-cycle, and run for 4-6 weeks.

  22. thanks , you have been johnny on the spot with the answers. I appreciate it

  23. glad to help!
    and we certainly appreciate your time & feedback, so it's a 2-way street my friend.

  24. Better see some fast squats today, bro beans! BLUE BANDS!
