noticed last night that my chest has gotten fuller . really noticed it with my shirt on. getting more vascular in my forearms too. I like this look and hope it gets better. I cannot wait to see my abs , since I have never really seen them even during basic training in the army 34 years ago. so" a shredding we will go a shredding we will go".

Shredded is a very good thing. I love it when my wife noticed when I take my shirt off! Lol. So far so good. Keep an eye on the BP.

Chefbo, have you noticed any AI like effects from Epi Smash? I managed to got a small case of gyno few months ago and I thought that maybe I could drop my AI dose a bit when I finally get to start my run... Epi solo didn't act like an AI for me at least at 40-50mg/day (at least not as a very strong AI) but maybe Hexadrone will..

bulking up has gotten a whole new meaning this holiday. i must have gained 5 pounds in the last 5 days. lord my acid reflux kicked in from such rich food and my body is just not use to it. never knew how your body will react until you feed it stuff its not accustom to. well to say the least cardio is definitely in my future. but thats what this time of year is for and i am not prepping for a show so what the hell. just more time to sweat in the gym. i have came to the realization that i am not going to be competing in a physique show but that doesn't mean i am not going to get in the best shape ever still. it just means i don't need to be so damn hard on myself and i can enjoy life while still living the fitness lifestyle. we all need to let our hair down( even if we don't have any) from time to time and relax .
i still am managing to get my workouts in just as hard even if they are spread farther apart. i will hit chest and shoulders tomorrow . i logged a leg and arm workout in on christmas eve at home even while cooking dinner for 14 people. try and pull that off!
no really guys the epi smash has been giving me some sides lately ( acne and back pumps ) but that is usual with most hardcore ph's i have taken. i am seeing some improved vascularity and hardening plus some added fullness i haven't seen before especially in the upper body (back and chest area) wanted to make sure i pointed that out with all the stuff i was ranting about after all this is a log for blackstone not a personal forum for talking **** about myself.
i will get some much needed taurine tomorrow to help out with the pumps and start back in with some chest blasting sessions. already planning my next run in late feb. jsut getting my goodies together. that will be my summer lean up. can't wait.

Still logging the epu smash for those following.
Todat finally got a workout in.I have been dealing with blood pressure issues the last few days. Really high.kinda had me worried.
So here we go.
Seated incline press
Flat db press
Bent over db rows
Close grip reverse pulldowns
Read something from Ronnie Coleman about really arching your back to engage the chest muscles more. It really helped today. Pecs are burning tonight. Thanks Big Ron.

ok so here is waht i have found from epi smash so far for me.
mild acne on face and upper torso
back pump really bad especially when exercises involving those muscles which is everything.
taurine is in hand and being applied find out tomorrow.
no water gain ( mostly from over eating during the holidays)
my back has gotten tighter and bigger i can tell it in my lats
chest if fuller , weight has went up 6 lbs or so.
i have be on vacation since the twentieth and have been eating like crazy. when i first started i was worried because i was working so much i was missing meals all the time. now being at home and the weather being bad i eat all the time.
now i am getting my diet back on track. bought a rice cooker yesterday bags of brown rice, chicken , lean pork, oatmeal , sweet potatoes , spinach etc to get back into the swing of things. did get alot of red meat during christmas, steak , roast beef, ground beef , not your traditional christmas fare . we had alot of sickness so i ended up cooking baked spaghetti and ribeyes for the family.
overall so far epi smash is kicking in . i wish i had another bottle to run another two or four weeks to see what it could do . i am sure this is a pretty strong compound , not much form Blackstone is for wusses .
Neck what is the recommended run for this ?
what could i run to bridge it?
i have some m1t on hand but was holding on to it for march. may just stay the course and ride this one out and take some time off.
12-29-2013, 10:39 PM

torq /x reps workout for legs
7 minutes 3 mph treadmill warmup
leg extensions super set with seated curls

bought some taurine and this nos/vasoliator called big blue . sample bottle 3 caps 30 minutes before workout. hit me about half way through pretty good , high focus , some pump . next time i'll give it more time .
wobbled out great leg punishment not to bad for shoulders but my energy was zapped by then . rest day tomorrow.

Killed those wheels! I'm impressed Chefbo. Sounds like EpiSmash is doing it's job. Keep a vigilant eye on the BP. Keep killing it!
01-02-2014, 02:35 PM
gonna take a couple days off epi smash back pumps are so bad i can barely work. taurine and all nothing is helping. stopped yesterday after first dose. i will jump back on saturday or sunday and se what happens i think i have 7 days left in the bottle. no since in trying to work out if i can't and hurt myself.
now since they aren't bothering me so bad this morning i did GVT chest and back . supplemented pulldowns for pullups to give the back a break.
decline db press 40lbs 10x10
incline db flyes 40lbs 3x10
lat pull-downs 134;bs 10x10
one arm db rows 40lbs 3x10
ab work tonight crunches, bicycle twists, planks 3x25 each
3 eggs, ribeye(4 ounces) hash browns, 1 oatmeal pancake preworkout drink and coffee
lunch- 1/2 cup brown rice, ham and swiss on whole wheat ornage slices.
dinner will be grilled sirloin of pork with mushrooms, brown rice, satueed mixed greens with red wine vinaigrette
finally got my wife to listen to me about eating. she gained 14 lbs since september and is furious. so i told her to lay off the bananas and breakfast bars in the mornings if she isn't going to do any cardio . i convinced her to let me make her protein shakes to take with her to work as meal replacements for breakfast. i explained how her body has been in a catabolic state all night and she need protein first not carbs. i also talked to my kids about their metabolism during the day. and we are going to make healthier choices for snacks they have during th day at school. teach them right as children and they will grow to be responsible healthy adults. i believe i finally have my wife coming around to my way of thinking. also bought here so diet accelerator powder off Nutraplanet to get her through the day.
they have a helluva sale going on on things we all use daily not just preworkouts, protein powders and phs. great prices on agmatine, green tea, yohimbe cla/alc for next to nothing. check it out if you get a chance.( no i am not getting anything for promoting them, lol).

Up your water intake and take more magnesium and potassium! It will help.. Something must be wrong with your diet, I've never heard that someone gets too painful pumps from Epi at such low dose and I don't think hexadrone makes pumps that much worse.
01-02-2014, 04:26 PM
Hey Chefbo, how much taurine are you taking? I didn't get any relief from the back pumps until 6g per day dosing 3 in the morning and 3 in the evening.
01-02-2014, 10:23 PM
I am at a gallon a day. I've got 500-mg tabs so I take 10 spilt up.so six has been the lucky number.I'll give it a shot. I may just be prone to them guys.I've had this issue before at low doses before. Remember I am 52 .that may make a difference.

Got back on the epi smash yesterday.little to no back issues.blood pressure shot up last night at a movie so bad I almost threw up.I have to make sure I keep on my meds during these runs.took yesterday off from training to give my back a rest. Overall this hss been a great run aside from the back issues which could be a personal problem for me. Appetite had been usual except for the holidays. Upper torso has swelled up some.did get some belly fat back as expected. I would expect if I had something like alpha max or dmz to bridge this I would gain so much more. Some dbol would have probably kicked this in the ass. I will do a detailed review next week when finished. I will follow this with my pct setup.

SHOULD FINISH EPI SMASH FRIDAY IF MY COUNT IS RIGHT ON THE BOTTLE. P BOLD IS DONE NOT THAT THAT MATTERS. TWO MONTHS OFF AFTER THIS THEN ON TO THE NEXT ONE . HOPE THE MONEY COMES TO GET IT DONE RIGHT. HAVE A GOOD WEEKEND GUYS . I'LL POST LATER ON IF THERE IS SOMETHING TO LOG.
