    Some lethargy today, maybe a fluke.

    General impressions: good moderate lean muscle gains so far coupled with moderate strength increases, size is developing nicely. I am trying to keep my diet clean. This cycle does not appear to assist at all with any hardening, nor does it greatly increased vascular appearance like I have experienced on some other cycles. Definitely bulking regime for this one.

  9. Bump for how the cycle turned out

  10. Sorry for the lack of updates but my time has been heavily devoted to family, work, and training these past 10 days. Also I did have some connection problems at home and was not able to have adequate time at work to post an update. I am sorry but here is the latest.

    Day on cycle:cycle ended last monday 1/22/07.

    day 8 into post cycle therapy

    Dosage:
    post cycle therapy

    post cycle therapy week 1 nolva 40mg DHEA 200MG, ADT 25 ED
    post cycle therapy week 2 nolva 40mg DHEA 200mg, ADT50 ED
    post cycle therapy week 3 nolva 20mg Dhea 100mg, ADT 50 ED
    post cycle therapy week 4 nolva 20mg Dhea 100mg, ADT 75 ED


    Ancillaries: niacin 500mg, red rice yeast 1200mg, coq10 100mg, multivitamin, b6, milk thistle 2000mg, nac 600mg, R-ala 200mg, hawthorn 1600mg
    multi, Taurine 5 grams ED

    Diet: , 2 scoops cytosport whey and 1 scoop muscle milk with skim milk, water and ice, coffee, whole wheat toast with npb, 2 whole eggs plus three whites, banana, more food later

    Weight @ 6’2”: Completed day 35 of cycle at 263lbs. (started at 249lbs) gained 14lbs on this 5 week cycle
    I am holding steady at 263lbs one week into post cycle therapy


    Muscle Group Trained Today: legs

    Last 2 sets of first exercise: edit later after the gym

    Notable positives: moderate strength gains that steadily increased in intensity towards the end of the cycle. I was still gaining strength through the first week of PCT.

    I feel like this was an excellent cycle in the cost to benefit ratio with little to no sides and good size and strength increases. I had minimum bloat but still good muscle gain. Some weight gain I know was water and glycogen but I would estimate this was less than 30% of the total weight gain. Again strength gains were moderate and steady.

    Example: I haven’t done a 1-rep max on bench press in years but figured I would give it a try . On Friday I got 425lbs pretty easy. I felt like I could have gotten maybe 450lbs if I were fresh as this was the end of a hard week of workouts and my shoulders and arms were pretty beat. I’ll try again my next chest day before my workout.

    Notable negatives (including side effects): I did start to get very minimum sensitivity on the nipples at the very end but this was completely alleviated with higher b6 and nolva 2 days into PCT.

    General impressions: good steady moderate lean muscle gains coupled with steady moderate strength increases that became more pronounced towards the end of the cycle into PCT. Size developed nicely thoughout cycle. I am trying to keep my diet clean. This cycle does not appear to assist greatly with any hardening, nor does it greatly increase vascular appearance but I did not get very bloated and was able to keep my body fat static throughout the cycle while increasing size and weight. No noticeable bloat despite the size and weight increases. A good clean bulking regime is this one.


    I will post blood work at the end of PCT for comparison to pre-cycle blood work but I felt little to no blood pressure issues, and felt pretty decent on this cycle throughout. I will be interested to see the liver and lipid panels following PCT.

  12. Looks good man, have you ran either of these before? How much of the weight was fat/water? Well planned PCT, wouldnt be suprised if you put that pound back on towards week 3-4 of it. Good log.

  13. Very nice cycle bro. I am glad someone finally logged this stack, it had always looked very promising.

    I have never run them together before. Sperately yes. They seem to work well together and complement each other well for a clean bulk with good cost to benefit ratio. At 6'2" 250-260 at any given time I see no reason to exceed 80mg xmass and 30mg phere when stacked. For someone 200 or less the phera could likely stay at 20mg with the 80mg of xmass with good gains seen.

    Thanks grunt and yeahright

    Yes I was pleasantly surprised. Most deviations were negligible and could be accounted for by day to day variances or with deviations that can be accounted for by other factors such as that days diet etc.

    The liver panel was only slightly elevated related to AST and actually dropped for ALT. I get my liver checked pretty frequently 2-4 times a year and my hematologist actually says that for bodybuilders, athletes and weight lifters liver paels will generally run higher than the average person due mostly to strenuous exercise and its effect on liver function.

    As for the cholesterol my first set of numbers were really good, and the PCT numbers were still really respectable.

    I will say that the RYR, niacin, and Coq10 within my ancillaries I believe help keep my cholesterol good and I use these mostly year round.

    As a note I did not fast for either blood sample
