This would be the first occurence of emotional mood impact i have been informed of if so.
Why wouldn't hormone fluctuations effect mood? Guess you have never been around my house when Aunt Flo is en route?
I doubt it could be any of the non-hormonal supplements, and this stack is the only variable introduced to my life that's caused this general mood. In any case I'm looking forward to stopping the NHA stack ... I'm sure it's helped, but in retrospect, I think that I'm probably not reaping as many benefits as older users, and subjecting myself to more of the side effects, being that I'm 18 and at my natural test peak.
Finally got my cAMPHIBOLIC. Took 2 PWO. Also added in 200mg caffeine PWO, which helped mood and energy levels to a degree. Whether it was the cAMP or the caffeine I'm not sure, but I was sweating much more than usual during my workout.
Weighed in at 186.5 (+6.5 lbs) !
Vascularity unfortunately is down from its appearance a little over a week ago. A little fat gain might be catching up with me? We'll see when I get my bodyfat % tested.
Leg strength was a really nice surprise today. I knocked out 3x5's of 170 lb. leg extensions and 170 lb. leg curls (AFTER 3x5's of the 7 other lifts). Last week I was struggling with 3x5 of 150 lbs on the leg curls, and could barely manage 3x5 of 160 lbs on the leg extensions.
Here's to hoping the cAMP helps the fat loss side of this recomp
Tried something new and skipped my rest day yesterday and did the same full volume workout as the day before, now at my 5-rep maxes. Bumped up my cals +200 than my rest days.
Strength was up - took my leg extensions and leg curls past the 175 lb. 5RM and hit 180.
Weight still at 186.5.
I didn't want to take measurements due to pump yesterday (day 22) so I did today:
Forearm - 13" (no change)
Right calf - 16.25" (+.75")
Right bicep - 15.5" (+.75")
Waist - 35" (-1")
Yup yup now that's a recomp. Despite some of the sides, the end results of this stack have been phenomenal.
Weight: 189 (+9) lbs -- probably closer to 188 when stomach contents are subtracted
Couldn't really measure strength today because I'm doing negatives now, with the exception of my 3x5 weighted chin-ups (bodyweight +25 lbs) and 3x5 weighted dips (bw +55 lbs). I thought those would have to be negatives today, but I pushed through them and managed to complete all sets with the full ROM. PB right there. Also, at the end of my workout I felt like doing some clean and presses, and grinded out 5 reps of 135 lbs without getting winded. I struggled to put 135 up for one rep with good form before I started this stack.
Very large pumps today. Cissus's anabolic effects should be just around the corner...
Dropped my ATD down to 25mg (1 pill of RXT at night). The libido crushing was getting too much. I will be trying out Rebound Reloaded for my next stack, though. I've got some high expectations for it.
I'll be starting a cut in a couple days, using what remains of my Anagen and NHA stack, and a bunch of other goodies. I'm really looking forward to it.
Conclusion's coming tomorrow.
Conclusion: Day 26
I'm ending this log today, because I'm adding albuterol and dropping my cals below 500 maintenance to start my cut.
Final weight: 188 lbs. (+8 lbs)
Right arm: 15.5 (+0.75")
Right calf: 16.25" (+0.75")
Waist: 34.5" (-1.5")
Forearm: 13.15" (+0.15")
I used a bodyfat approximation that I found on the Weight Loss forum, but got some wild numbers. Caliper measurement at the gym had me at 11% bf when my waist was 36", but according to the weight to waist ratio, I had been at 20%. Throwing in my new weight and waist numbers approximates me now at 14.5%, which would mean a loss of 8.62 lbs of fat and a gain of 15.62 lbs of LBM. Doubtful.
So I'll just let the measurements speak for themselves. All in all, an extraordinarily successful stack that accomplished exactly what I wanted: leaning out while adding at least 8 lbs. of LBM.
If anyone is interested in following my equally extravagant stack for cutting, let me know and I can set up another log - this time with pictures.
Thanks to everyone who followed along
