Ok, so first of all I apologize for not keeping a detailed log for the past 2 weeks. I've upped my doses as follows -
20/30/30/40/50-60 (last 4 days of cycle @ 60)
I decided to up my dosage to 60 since I was seeing really no ill side effects besides some occasional lethargy.
Summary of Cycle
I'm not overly impressed with my cycle. Not because of Epistane, but because of some poor nutrition and training during the cycle. So I guess I should said, I'm not very impressed with my discipline.
With that said, I did gain 7lbs of lean mass. I made the following strength gains -
185 x 6 (Before)
215 x 6 (NOW)
N/A - Quad injury really didn't allow me to squat towards the last few weeks of my cycle.
I'm very impressed with my appearance. My core is substantially larger and more defined. I've been getting all kinds of compliments @ the gym. Ranging from "How did you get your torso so big?" to "Man you must be on gear"
Overall, I'm pleased with my gains. With that said, I'm looking forward to going into post cycle therapy so I can finally start going out with my buddies to drink. The last month I've been practically a social nobody to avoid drinking and/or smoking.
I begin Torem @ 120mg Monday. I haven't picked up ReduceXT yet, but I'm still contemplating adding it to my PCT. Oh yeah, and as far as libido, I didn't notice any shutdown until I bumped it up to 60mg. And even @ 60mg, shutdown is minimal.
If anyone has ?s let me know.

Good log, too bad I got in here late. Yeah, I was impressed and confused with DB exercises . . . who has 170 lb DBs? Then I realized that you added the 2 for a total.
