I just recieved my bottle of TRN yesterday and decided to run a 30 day cycle and put up my results here.
Starting date: Oct 31 2005
Projected end date: 30th 2005
Current weight: 218
Current BF%: 11% (I work construction, it keeps my BF down)
Max lifts: Parallel box squat 575x1, BB Rows 295x8, Floor Press 365x1, Flat bench 420x2, Sumo deadlift 555x1
Goals: Increase my main lifts by 5% or more (have been pretty stagnant the past few weeks). Don't care about body comp/mass improvement as I am looking mainly for strength, which tren is known for.
Diet: I will be eating AT LEAST 220-300g of protein/day and 4500kcals per day to prevent bodymass loss from my work (framing houses 40 hours/week) and from workouts. Most of the calories will come from complex carbs and EFAs, including 10g of (3g DHA/EPA combined) and Flax Seed oil (2-3 tbsp per day).
Other supplements: 2-3 caps of AMP+2 scoops pre-workout (been taking this for ~1 month). 1 scoop NO-xplode on off days. 2x per day, Instone Protein pudding once or twice/day, occasional Muscle sandwich for "cheating" or when blood glucose gets too low (I am hypoglycemic). I will take 2 servings of Primaforce whey after each workout along with 50-60g simple carbs. 3-4 tabs per day. Acetyl- taken 1g upon waking with 4 capsules of NOW 'triple strength' lecithin and again 6 hours later. This is all generally taken year round.
Anabolic experience: Started in 2001 at age 21, have done about 1 dozen since then. Weighed 190 at start, usually consisting of 12 weeks low dose test and maybe some dbol, not much else and no PCT. Ran several small (3-5 week) cycles of methyl PH in 2004-2005 with PCT and ~1 month in between. Last cycle was 10mgSD +20mg PP per day for a month. Went from 210 to 223. Been on PCT using ATD and nolva. Cycle resulted in okay strength but mostly just pumps and hypertrophy. Maintained 8 out of the 13lbs and all strength. Stopped PCT on Sunday after 3 weeks and began taking the TRN on Monday afternoon. I took one cap at 3pm and another at 9 before bed.
Dose: I will take the TRN upon waking (~6:30am), after work (~4pm) and before bed (~9-10pm). So 3x1.5mg a day or 4.5 mg total, which is what the bottle recommends.
Training experience/style: ~12 years, since age of 13. Primarily used BBing methods until 2.5-3 years ago when I switched to the WSB program and concentrated on RAW powerlifting/powerbodybuilding. I don't compete very often but love to lift heavy and challenge myself.
Tuesdays are Max Effort Bench Day, Thursdays are Max Effort Squat/DL, Saturday is Dynamic effort Bench and Sunday is DE Squat/DL. Each session lasts no longer than 1 hour. I a few 15-30 minute mini-workouts throughout the week for recovery, prehab and rehab that usually consists of abdominal, lower back, stretching, sled dragging, neck and grip work.
Stress/mood/etc.: I currently attend college part time and work full-time, and train 3 different people in my private garage gym (one guy does 2-1 hour sessions on Sat/Sun, the other two are women and work out 3x per week for 1-1.5 hours). I have my hands full as you can see, so I will try to keep track of how this cycle affects or is affected by my exterior stress. I usually manage 8 hours of sleep a night, sometimes a little less. I'll try to keep this consistent in order to accurately assess the results of my cycle.
To be continued...gotta go train a client.
