    Going Hard w/ IML 1-ANDRO Rx: review/log


    [IMG]http://****************/images/logo.gif[/IMG]



    Thanks
    again to HeavyIron & IronMagLabs for allowing me the opportunity to run their 1-ANDRO. I do have prior experience with the original 1-AD that came out many years ago and in recent times, with FRL's AlphaMass. Although each of those runs were done years ago, I do remember getting plenty strong & lean with both. So that it's known, I am currently on 200mg Test Cyp and have been on at least two months by now and am accustomed to the pumps, strength, size that I've attained so far. I can say that I feel I have bloated a bit and even though diet dictates a lot what you'll like - I'm planning on leaning out and getting very strong with this 1-ANDRO Rx run.

    Stats:

    33 yrs.old
    195 lbs.
    ~16 yrs lifting experience
    currently on Layne Norton's PHAT

    PR's:
    -Conv. DL: 410lbs
    -Incl. bench: 325x4
    -Front squat: 225x7

    Goals:
    - strength: would love to get my DL up 30lbs at least in the 30 days I have; get 3 more reps on my bench; and do 245x7 on frnt sqt, at least.
    - recomp: i think i'm estro sensitive-hopefully the 1-ANDRO, along with a tighter macro intake, I'll be able to achieve this.

    I will start dosing tomorrow and Day 1 in the gym will be on Monday.

    1-Testosterone Facts:

    - 7 times the anabolic potency of testosterone
    - High oral bioavailability
    - Long plasma half-life
    - Well absorbed through the gut
    - Is not converted to estrogen in the body, therefore causes no breast enlargement or water retention
    - No conversion into DHT in the body, therefore won’t cause acne, scalp-hair loss, or body/facial hair growth
    - No liver damage, stomach discomfort, or toxicity
    - Increases lean muscle mass, strength, muscle hardness and vascularity
    - Decreases body fat

    First workout on 1-ANDRO-Rx:

    (dosing started yesterday)

    Upper - Power day:

    Inc. bench: 240x5, 260x5, 275x5, 295x5, 315x5


    Db. rows: 95x5x5

    Hoist machine, seated bench: 230x11, 250x11


    Under.hnd grip pulldowns: 130x2x11


    Db Curls: 40lbs x 20, 50x10, 45x10

    Tate press, Db's: 35x3x10
    =======================

    So as far as dosing is concerned, I'm taking all doses (4 caps) before 12-noon in two separate, equal doses. Would love to say my bench went up 30lbs! But it didn't, at least not yet =P

    Everything felt good, but nothing to report, as I do know it'll be a few days before it kicks-in. Prior to today, I've been doing the Ohio State BuckEye bench program for a month and decided to switch back to 5x5 for benching - I started feeling the ill-effects of the heavy doubles & singles work. So far, so good! Nothing hurts, no injuries. Tomorrow will be Deads!! Am really aiming to get back to a 455lb Conv. DL.

    Lower, power day:

    Deadlifts: 265x5, 300x4, 340x3, 380x1, 415x1, 365x1

    Legpress (w/o sled wt): 340x11, 430x11, 480x11

    45deg. back extension w/10 lb plate superset with bodyweight: 3x10

    LOL!! huh??

    nah man, i'm a guy..

    2/15 workout:

    Legs

    front squats: 220x5x5
    good mornings: 90x2x10
    legpress: 450x3x8, 270x15
    calf raise on legpress: 270x2x25
    seated calf raise:70x20, 120x20


    Everything's still going well - squats were going up smoothly with less effort than I expected.

    Been feeling a bit lethargic in the last few days - not too sure if that's the 1-ANDRO just yet.

    Lower, power day
    Conv. DL's: 290x3, 330x3, 370x3, 420x1
    - LegPress: 450x8, 500x10, 540x11
    Legcurls: 45x12, 50x2x10
    - 45 deg. hyperExtension, BW + 10lbs: 2x11
    Sit-ups: bw x 20, +25lbs x 15, +35lbs x 12
    - Calf raise, barbell: 135x3x15

    Everything went really good today! Deadlifts came up with no sticking points at all - nice smooth pulls. Weights used on legpress are numbers I've used before, but this time around - didn't have to grind these ones out. Am expecting more strength increases in the days to come. One thing I am noticing a bit more is the lethargy and recovery - it feels like I can go back in the gym and hit some more DL's; I felt the same way when I ran some 1-Andro about 2 yrs ago.

    yup, i gotta be careful with that though - i thought i could train my DL intensely twice a week (awhile back) - it eventually caught up with me after i stopped the 1-Test; got to a 455 DL, but it all went down hill after.

    off day today - maybe some cardio

    2/21 chest/arms hypertrophy


    -15 deg. incline Smith bench: 180x12, 200x3x12

    -decline DB flyes: 40x2x15
    -seated flat bench press, Hoist: 180x12, 270x12, 320x2x12

    -preacher curl machine: 70x12, 90x2x12
    -cable Hammer curls: 85x13, 100x2x13
    -DB con. curl: 30x2x12

    -V-bar pushdowns: 145x3x12
    -dips, bodyweight: x40, x25, x15
    -overhead cable extensions: 130x2x15
    -1-arm cable pushdowns: 55x2x15

    Strength appears to be picking up - didn't expect to hit 320x2x12 on the seated bench; I usually have some trouble towards the end of the set of 270. Smooth reps on the 320 sets. If I could hit 360 and knock out the same amount of sets/reps, I'd be impressed.

    nah man, i'm doing 2 am, 2 pm

    2/23 Sat.workout

    Back squats: 230x5x5
    Legpress: 450x10, 500x10, 520x10, 540x10, 270x20
    Seated leg curls: 85x3x10
    45 deg. back extension, bw: +25lbs x 15
    Seated calf-raise: 140x2x15

    I know those squat numbers aren't much to look at - I am working on it though. Those are actually my front squat numbers, but being sick that day, (weekend) didn't feel like having a bar across my neck/chest.

    Legpress numbers are going up nicely - don't think I've ever gone that high w/o struggling with the weight. Will be pushing for a number number each workout.

    2/26 workout

    deads: 265x5, 310x5, 350x5

    legpress: 360x3x11

    leg extension: 85x2x15

    hyp. extensions: +45lbs x 2x12

    lying curls: 45x2x12

    25 mins walking hills on treadmills.

    Sorry for lack of updates - been recovering from a cold from over the weekend & is still lingering a bit. Deadlifts for 5's went very smooth - no slowing or struggling with any of the reps. Will be going for 430 next Tues and am confident that I'll get it. Strength in general seems to be gradually going up & not as sore as I'm accustomed to after a DL workout.

    2/28 workout:

    Kroc rows: 100x20 --->felt strong with every rep; very little strain compared to other times have done them
    Yates rows: 145x3x10
    inverted rows, bw: 3x11
    partial pulldowns super setted with full rom pulldowns: 175x7 s/s 115x10 x 2 sets

    db laterals: 35x13 ->25x8, 35x10->25x10->15x6 [[ 2 drop-sets]]
    45# plate raise: x12, 35# x8, 25# x6 [[done as a drop set]]
    machine shoulder press: 130x3x12

    3/1 (friday) abbreviated leg workout

    front squat: 190x5, 205x5, 220x5, 240x5, 250x5
    legpress: 410x20

    Had dinner plans with the wife, so had to cut it short. That 250x5 is a fairly old PR - hit it last year, but I'm sure I wasn't going ATG back. **** was tough and the first time I strained [that hard] in a leg workout.

    That 410x20 was a first - I'm used to cutting it off at 10-11 reps. Definitely had that drive to hit 20.

    - Workout intensity is definitely up; an aggressive confidence is how I can best describe.
    - Strength is steadily climbing w/o an increase in body weight.
    - Not leaning-out as much, but I'm not putting on fat (as far as I can tell).

    3/5 tues

    Deadlift: 310x5, 350x3, 390x1, 430x1

    Leg press: 360x10, 450x10, 540x10
    good mornings: 80x2x12
    lying legcurls: 45x12, 55x12
    Pallof press: 50lbs x 3x25 seconds
    Seated calf raise: 90x25, 150x2x12
    Calf raise: 50lbs x 25

    Most noticeable for me is the strength that continues to build on my deadlifts and leg-presses - am even on maintenance calories & some days even lower and still getting stronger. Will be going for 430 again on Tues and 440 in a couple weeks.

    Pendlay rows:155x5x6
    Yates rows: 155x3x11
    cable rows, pronated: 155x2x12
    chin-ups, bodyweight: 3x12

    db laterals: 35x11, [35x10->25x6->20x6 x 2 drop sets
    rear lateral machine: 85x15, [85x10->55x5->45x5 -= drop set
    shoulder press machine: 145x10, 160x10, 175x10, [190x8->175x8->160x8 -=drop set

    --Nothing too special to note here; with 'back day', i'm looking for more of a contraction than more weight. Weights felt good, easy to control and flex the lats

    Felt motivated today..unfortunately my shoulders are killing me - had 1 more set of 345x1 to do, but i cut that one out. Knocked out those 260x10 though.

    3/12 - lower body

    conv. DL's: 295x3, 335x3, 380x3, 435x1, 365x1, [315x5 -> pulled as fast n hard as possible
    leg press: 360x10, 450x10, 540x2x10, 610x10
    hyp. extensions: +35lbs: 2x15
    legcurls, seated: 85x12, 100x12
    sit-ups +25lbs: 2x20
    BB calf raise: 135x20, 185x2x20

    Felt dam good and driven to get those DL's up! 435 came up a lil slow like the 420 i hit last week, but no sticking points at all...so..happy about that. The 365 and 315 I pulled with as much speed and hip drive as possible to fix the slowness.

    Legpress went well too -accidentally did 2 sets of 450, but was all good..good reps. Hit 610 for my first time- first 7 reps weren't so bad, but the last 3 were tough, but I drove those 3 home.

    Weight: ~190

    == slowly leaning out and getting stronger at the same time

    Final Summary:

    Cycle ended a couple days ago.

    -incline bench is about the same - shoulder pains kicked in last week & havent been able to push as hard as I'd like
    -Deadlifts are steadily rising..up to a 435lb single - just 20lbs away from my all-time PR (pre-injury)
    -Kroc rows - 100lb DB - have gotten noticeably easier
    -front squats up to 250x6 and 230x5x5 - i figure about a 20lb increase in max ( 1 rep calculated )
    -fullness in delts & chest increase
    -ending weight= 189 lbs

    I saw slow, steady gains; strength increased while dropping weight. Not as powerful as some other PH's, but with a higher dose - maybe 5-6 caps ( i was using 4 ) would be ideal. I'd say this is a PH for the intermediate lifter - one who has their diet and training down. My aim was to increase strength & I was able to do so.
