    I think it's about 500-750 over maintenance daily because I did the estimate based on my target weight of 180. The cardio and the 20-rep squats take care of the excess quite nicely though.

    I woke up before the alarm again today, second time in a row, hasnít happened since high school. I expected to be dead after the squat assault yesterday but it wasnít too bad, at least mentally. I procrastinated all day but didnít feel depressed. Hunger was ridiculous again, but I was so bloated from all the food already. There is some mild quad soreness.

    Comments:

    That workout reminded me of all other Friday workouts that followed a squat Wednesday. Apparently, I canít recover well enough and the numbers always suffer. Therefore, I decided I will keep the weight the same for the most part and increase the number of reps on all such Fridays. I might do 20ó30 reps rest-paused for all but the back thickness exercise.

    Sleep was just the same last night and I woke up early. I also noticed that what I thought to be fat gain may not be fat at all: I am holding some water in the most obvious places. Quads today feel worse than yesterday.

    I woke up at 7 again, this is not a coincidence. Again, I slept for 4 more hours since itís the weekend. I fought with procrastination all day today again, but I didnít feel as run down as usual after tough workouts.

    Comments:

    Another good and relaxed workout overall. Weights went up easily, although the first exercise kind of sucked: biceps are my worst and weakest body part, good thing I donít care about arms much. Weight on front squats felt light, I could have gotten 10 reps easily on the heavy set, but during the last few reps either the bar was sliding down my shoulders or my knuckles were choking me. The widowmaker was a piece of cake but once again I ran into the same problems. I hope I donít have to switch this exercise out because of positioning issues when the weight goes up: I love front squats. I should really get 225 on the last rotation 4 weeks from today.

    I woke up at 7 again today, now I can vouch that sleep has improved dramatically. I also started Raw Test today and I think I could see a difference. I remember last time I ran the stack I was almost euphoric the day I added Raw Test. It could be that 5 tabs of DT is a much better dose but we shall see, next week I am bumping it up to 6 tabs.

    Yeah, I wanted to see what DT could do on its own at 3 and 4 tabs. Besides, I have only one bottle of RT.

  10. Hi Machinehead,

    Looks like it's going well for you! I'm at day 19 now and I'm actually up 4 pounds aswell, I'm around 500 cals above maintenance but doing some cardio aswell. I don't think I had this much weightgain on the old DT. Interesting. I did 2/1/1 first 12 days and 2/2/1 on the past 7. Another difference with the old DT I notice is I sweat like a horse during workouts. Do you notice anything like that? I consume atleast half a gallon of water during workout alone!

    I always sweat a lot and I haven't noticed any difference from DT. I visit the water fountain at least 20 times during my workouts.

    I slept in today and have been yawning all day. The workout was good and the strength increase on the first two exercises was ridiculous. There was little MMC while doing pull-ups and I was pretty tired by then. I almost dozed off on my rack pull sets but I beat the log book nevertheless.

  14. Good log so far. What are the body comp effects thus far?

    No fat gain from what I see, just some water retention. I can see weekly changes in my thighs which is awesome. The strength increases speak for themsleves.

    Good luck with your Ether/ Nos Precursor log!

    Comments:

    I slept in again today, the lethargy is too much. Therefore, I started taking Solaray Adrenal Caps, 2 caps with breakfast. As addressed in my first post, the adrenals are my weak link and the [presumed] cortisol suppression from DT depresses the hell out of me, to the point of not caring about school and work and not accomplishing anything significant.

    I felt much better this morning, letís see how things progress after adding more adrenal support yesterday. Todayís workout was again very relaxed and I easily beat all previous numbers. I might up the reps on the leg press because I donít feel the quads working much.

    I felt fully recovered this morning and a sense of well-being persisted throughout the day: the Adrenal Caps have been an invaluable addition. At this point I canít even ask for more, I remember when I first started DC recovery was terrible. My recovery now is definitely above average.

    There is some pain just below the knee but I canít tell if itís a muscle or a tendon, itís so subtle. It must have happened while leg-pressing.

    Comments:

    Today I went to the gym 4 hours later than usual and only 1 hour after the last solid meal instead of the usual 3 hours. Once I finished the first exercise I was in the zone and beat all numbers easily. Unfortunately, I got that same lower back discomfort on the last set of deadlifts I have gotten before. Itís just above the hip joints and not really the back but it gets pretty bad sometimes. Letís see what happens tomorrow and Wednesday after squats, I might need to only increase the weight by 10lbs each time, I would really hate to drop deadlifts

    I started taking 6 tabs of DT today and I will do that for the remaining 4 weeks of this log. Apparently, body weight has remained practically unchanged which is fine, strength is going up so mass gains will follow.

  22. The joint problem could be the SI joint swelling. You might want to go and get a therapist to check it out...usually with the correct stretching and ball exercises(between legs and band straps, adduc and abbduc exercises) you can eleviate that pain in about 1 month.

    OR you might have one leg slightly longer than the other; im talking millimeters, if even.

    Thanks for the advice!

    I know for sure that my right hip isn't good because I had major problems with it while running 6-12 miles a day years ago. It could be related.

    I woke up feeling great today but couldnít do any cardio. I started feeling sluggish after the second meal but it was nothing like before when the workout load was a lot less so I am happy with it. My back feels fine today, I hope I can increase my deadlift gradually with no problems, I have been way too cautious in the past to work into heavy weight.
