Epistane/Anabolic Pump log!
Haven't recieved my Epistane yet. But I got and started my anabolic pump today. I am just getting this thing started to post my plans for the cycle.
Stats: 21yrs Old
BodyFat %: ???
I plan on starting a 4 week cycle, with option to extend to 6 or 8 weeks depending on how my gains are, and how my body is feeling. I will start with 30mg a day and possibly bump to 40mg a day also depending on how I feel. While running the 30mg a day I will take 10mg A.m./10mg Pre-workout/10mg Pre-Bed meal. If I bump to 40mg I will dose 20mg Pre-Workout.
As for the Anabolic Pump. I will be running it as the bottle says. Taking 1 pill 15 mins prior to high carb meals. I have chosen Breakfast, Pre-workout, and Post-Workout Shakes as my meals.
As for post cycle therapy I have Nolva which will be dosed at 40/30/20/10. Run along side ALRI's Evolution stack(Jungle Warfare, Restore, Bad Ass Mass)
My Training routine and link to my journal are below:
Day 1: Chest/Calves
Day 2: Back/Forearms
Day 3: Shoulders/Traps/Calves
Day 4: Off
Day 5: Bi's/Tri's/Forearms
Day 6: Quads/Hams/Calves
Day 7: Off
Abs are trained when I do cardio about every other day in the A.M. Then I lift in the P.M. I can't post my lifting journal until I get to 20 posts.
My is planned pretty well. I will on post Macro's here.
Here are my daily Totals Divided up between 7 meals. Biggest being Breakfast and Post-workout.
Protein: 388g (38% 1559 Cals)
Carbs: 496g (46% 1959 cals)
Fat: 77g (16% 690 cals)
If you have any thoughts on how I can improve this, let me know.

Epistane arrived today. I took my first dose 1hr before gym. I know I'm not going to feel effects yet. But I will only dose 20mg today just to get it into my system. I will up it to 30mg tomorow as planned.
I am really exited abou this!
I don't think the AP has started kicking in yet. But I hit legs today...OO MAN.... My legs were toasted! I can't wait to start feeling the effects!
Intensity wasn't really above average. I was unusually happy in the gym. I usually have a pretty serious attitude. But I think I was just so exited to start this stack I was just high on life. But I still moved great wieghts. When I hit 20 posts on this site I'm going to post a link to my journal on BBing.com So people can look at my workouts and see my gains in the gym.
Day 2 - Off Day...Cardio/Abs/Calves
Today is an off day. I did do cardio this morning along with abs and calves. No noticable effects yet. Today is my first FULL day on both Epistane and Anabolic Pump. I am really looking forward to the gym tororow. It is Chest and Calves. Bodyweight was down this morning unfortunatly 216lbs .
11 Feb 07 - Day 3
Today is Day 3 on Epi/Ap. No noticable effects as of yet. But I am very optimistic. I did look a little more vascular than usual in my arms and shoulders. Don't know if thats from the supps, or recent weight loss that I can't explain. I am back up to 219lbs now. Hopefully I will Keep gaining. If I could get back to 228lbs and be just as lean as I am now if not leaner from this stack I would be very happy. It would make my cutting a lot easier.
Made a decision about my caloric intake. I will be adding a protein shake before my morning cardio. Only taken on days that I run in the A.M. It will bring my cardio day Macros to.
On Non-Cardio Days.
Was thinking a little earlier. I would like to get more frequency in, but still do the same bodypart combo's I'm doing now. So I have decided to switch my Off days up. My split will change to a 3 on 1 off rotation. This will mean that every week a Different bodypart will get worked a day early. I.E. Week one chest would be on SUN. but Week 2 it would be on Sat, and then week 3 Switch back to Sun. Giving me 5 days rest one week and 6 the next if that makes sense. I'm going to try this out because I think my recovery will be up while taking EPI/AP.
Sully I was doing a modified upper body lower body split.
Wk 1 upper/lower/upper Wk2 lower/upper/lower and my recovery was great.Im sure youll be fine.Looks good!And with 400+gm protein/day you should blow up like mad.Good luck!
12 Feb 07 - Day 4 GO TIME!
I'm pretty sure I started feeling the effects today. Below is little description of my back workout from today. That I posted in my journal 7 Day bodypart split log - Bodybuilding.com Forums
WOW!!! One of the best back workouts I have EVER had! I thought my lats were going to rip off my back the pump was so insane. The pump was accompanied by a calm intensity. I was weird. Strength was pretty good. Really loved the combo of exercises I chose. I had that I own the gym attitude....It was nice. I did rack pulls for the first time ever. Turned some heads with it which was pretty cool. I think I could have definatly done more weight but my hams were still pretty soar from SLDL's the other day.
We'll see what happens in the days to come!
Looking good man Ill be watching as I was planning on running this as a lean mass cycle this summer. keep it up

Awsome workout today. Felt real strong on my DB press's, as well as my smith machines. I just got stronger with every set. Didn't work traps today because I did heavy Rack Pulls yesterday, and I felt like they didn't need any attention today. Pump was awsome as well. Definatly looking more vascular and a bit leaner than before.
Weight: 226 lbs!!!
14 Feb 07 - Day 6
I did Cardio/Abs this morning. Good run, great abs workout. I weighed in at 224. My weight has been bouncing up and down. I'm hoping it will just keep going up. But so far so good. Looking Leaner and more vascular than before. And its only day 6!
have you been weighing yourself at the same time every time you weigh in, because bodyweight usually fluctuates by about 5lbs during the course of the day
hey man i was readin ur log looks like that stuffs workin good for u... is that right on chest day that u do 8 sets of flat bench press?
Well I thnk 4 of those are warm ups. W/e I do as my first eercise I like to do a good bit of warm ups. Get the blood flowing. But I don't do it to the point I'm exhausted or anything. like 2 sets of 135 x 15, then 185 x 8-10 for 1-2 sets. Then Jump into the working sets. It also depends on how my shoulders/elbows/wrist feel. I don't want to jump to my working weight too soon. So I ensure I'm good and warmed up before I hit the weights for real.
If you look at a back day you wont see that many warmups(maybe for dealifts) but I only really do them in high numbers like that unless its an exercise that has a higher probability of injury. I see WAY to many people just walk into the gym and throw on 225 and just start banging out work sets with NO warmup. It just seems like they are asking for an injury.
15 Feb 07 - Day 7
Feeling pretty good right now. I had an AWSOME workout today! It was insane, the pump was crazy most likely from the AP, and my strength was feeling great, especially on BB curls, and close grip hammer strength. Really liking this stack right now. It can only get better from here! Really REALLY looking forward to the weeks coming....You could say I am this exited-->
The meals that I'm taking the AP with are as follows. I don't have macros right infront of me. But I take the AP 15 mins prior to the meal.
Breakfast-6:15 = 2 Scoops Whey, 1 Bannana, 1 Cup Dry Oats(mixed in with protein shake)
Pre-Workout-2:00pm = 7oz Grilled Chicken, 1.5 Cups Brown Rice
Post-Workout Shake(I take the AP after as I leave the gym)- 5:45 - 6:00pm = Weight Gainer. 90 Carbs.
6:30 - 7:00pm(I dont take AP before this meal) 7oz Grilled Chicken, 1 Bannana, 16oz 1% Milk, 1 Can of Yams OR 2 Cups Brown Rice.
I take my Epistane during breakfast/Pre-Workout/Pre-Bed Meals.
Did you read that you aren't supposed to eat right after working out while on AP, or that you aren't supposed to eat for 1hr no matter what?
no it wasn't about the AP, i tried to find the link but i couldn't find it.... but i read not to eat at least an hour before workout, and at least an hour after.. something about keeping the blood flowing i can't remember exactly what it was
If you wait til 1hr after your workout then you still have another 30min til you get nutrients recirculating in your system.
So lets look at it like this 1)youre starting with a low fuel and repair material reserve 2)you spend 1hr breaking down muscle fibers 3) you wait another hr to get in your macros 4) it takes 30min more for circulation.
So in essence youre starting poorly,and are in a catabolic state for 2.5hrs before repair begins=not good.
I drink a 75gm protein 70gm cards an hr before I train.Id rather waste a little protein and have it converted to fuel than not have enough and miss an opportunity to build the most muscle per session as possible.
Try it like this and see if you see the difference.I believe you will.Sorry for the hijack Sully
Good post mm, the main reason a lot of people choose the hour fast after workouts is primarily for cardio/wgt loss sessions as there have been some studies done where it was found that the metabolism was increased quite a bit post workout. Now if the ingestion of food during that time frame would mess with the metabolism of food, I don't really recall any data stating or neglecting this.
I personally don't really abide by this, but if someones really wanting to loose wgt badly then I guess it's worth looking into to.

ok i don't understand the whole amino and macro nutrient thing.... but let me tell u what i do and let me know whats wrong...
i have a meal about an hour before workout...
then post workout(5-10 minutes after last set)i have weightgainer shake..
then 45-60 minutes later i'll have another meal
i don't get the low fuel and material reserve
