Dosage: 30mg (20 pre, 10 post)
I did a very light, total body workout/warmup then moved on to 30 minutes of cardio. I lifted hard two days ago and my body wasn't ready for some heavy lifting, so I did a warmup set per body part (bench, hack squat, assisted dips,etc). I hope to bike tomorrow and then be back in the gym in two days for heavy lifting. My workout schedule becomes pretty hit or miss now. I have a daughter who swims on her high school team and my son plays hockey, so that doesn't leave me consistent workout days. I still plan to workout atleast 3 days per week, but the schedule varies too much for me to set aside days, thus the reason for going to total body workouts.
-I'm 2 1/2 weeks into this and I would say I'm making slow, but steady gains. I haven't noticed anything negative thus far. My body/joints feel good and my skin is pretty clear. My mood and sleep have been great and I'm noticing strength increases. This is what I expected from a pulse cycle. Slow steady games with minimal sides. Hopefully I can say the same thing in another 2 weeks. I have another couple of workouts/dosages @ 30mg. then I'm bumping up to 40mg. I have a feeling things will really start to take off at 40mg, but we'll see.
Thanks to those for following this thread and a hello to MadJim.

Keep up the good log E, I enjoy reading this daily / every time you update!

Dosage: 30mg (20 pre/10 post)
Went back to back days with 30mg. each day. Did not lift but did go out for a bike ride. I have a very hilly 6 mile route I take that really gives me a great workout! It takes me about 30 min. to complete and this was the first time I've attempted it this year. Surprisingly, I did quite well. My thighs were burning at times, but that was a good feeling.
I plan to lift today, but I won't be taking an epithin-E since I've gone back to back days. I believe I have a case of Golfer's elbow, or medial epicondylitis right now. Any type of pullups or similar type of lift really makes it hurt, so tonight I may just do the big three (bench/squat/deads). I haven't done deads in 15 years I bet, so I'll have to see how that goes.
All going well otherwise, nothing negative to report.

Workout: Total body.
Did Bench, Hack squats, close grip pulldowns, pushups on a balance ball type thing (half a ball?), abs and 1 set of light curls. Tried avoid doing anything that would cause my elbow any pain and I pretty much had success. Not a bad workout, but not quite as strong as the last one (only did 275 x 7 and last time was x 8). Short on time today, so I missed a lot of normal lifts.
Since I went back to back days with my doses, today I didn't take any. I seem to workout a little better after taking 20mg of epithin-e.
Tomorrow I will bike, Thursday will be off an off day and then back in the gym on Friday. According to my chart, I now begin taking 40mg. of epithin-e for the next 12 doses (3 1/2 weeks).

No deads for me, short on time and the area for this was occupied by other lifters. Hopefully tomorrow! Thanks for asking Dr.!

Dosage: 40mg, 20 Pre, 20 Post
Workout: Pushing (shoulders, chest, triceps)
-Took 2 days off from working out and it felt good to be back in the gym. Added another rep to my bench press going 6 reps x 295lbs. To save me from having a sore shoulder, I'm not doing a lot of benching. I did 135 x 15, 185 x 10, 225 x 10 and 295 x 6. Then I move on to Incline Dumbell presses and other chest exercises. I've also had to adjust my grip. My hands are only about the width of my body apart. If I go wider, my left shoulder really hurts.
-This was my first day at 40mg. Nothing negative to report. I'm feeling stronger and getting bigger in the chest shoulders, but my waist/belly are slightly smaller. Thumbs up thus far!

Dosage: 40mg (20/20 split)
Thoughts: Good workout, legs are getting stronger. Still struggling with certain lifts that make my right elbow hurt. Noticed a little more lack of patience I guess you could say. Not really aggression, just no patience. Also, my scalp seems to be breaking out a little bit, but not my back, arms or face. Joints a little sore, drying out a bit? The cissus does seem to help.
Weight is staying steady, maybe a slight leaning effect?

Keep up the good work on the log.
I am interested in seeing how the side effects are starting to hit you, even though you are on a pulse, it seems like they are coming in about the 4th week, is this correct?
09-11-2007 06:46 AM
If I am starting to get sides, it's happening in week 4, correct. I'm not experiencing any shutdown of Libido, maybe slight backpumps occassionally. My skin is slightly breaking out and at times, I get a little short with my patience, but nothing I can't handle. Now that I'm up to 40mg on workout days, we'll see if it gets worse.

Day 27. OFF
Day 28. 40 mg. 10mg 1st thing in the a.m., 20 pre & 10 post workout.
Workout: Good I did chest/shoulders/triceps. Felt full. Did 275x8 reps on the bench. Had hoped to do 9, but it wasn't to be.
Observations: Weight is slowly creeping up. My diet has been pretty good, but I haven't tracked it like I said I would for about 10 days now. I'm eating normal, not over eating. Veins in arms more noticeable. Skin/scalp seems to have cleared up a bit, mood very good. Libido fine, even had some morning wood.
4 weeks into this and I'm quite pleased. I'm getting stronger, I've add about 3lbs but my waist & belly are down a little bit, so it appears I'm on track, lose some fat, add some muscle. I have enough pills for 9 doses of 40mg, then I'll taper off. That gives me another 3 weeks of this. I'd like to see me hit 275x10 reps on the bench. We'll see.
Also, I had my blood pressure checked and it was good, 124/71.

Nice feedback. Keep up the good thread!

Day 29: Off
Day 30: Off
Day 31: 40 mg, 10 a.m., 20 pre workout & 10 post.
Weight: 242.5lbs (+4lbs from the start)
Workout: Back, legs, biceps
I'm slowly gaining weight. I think my legs are getting a little bigger. Having not really worked them for quite some time due to a bad hip that was repaired in May, I've been slowly working them the past month & a half and I'm regaining a lot of my lost strength there. I'm still fighting "golfers' elbow", so I've adjusted some lifts that seem to use/target my forearms & elbows.
Observations: I'm sure I've lost a little body fat while adding muscle. Pants still fit fine, arms/chest/shoulders appear "thicker". Joints are alittle sore today after lifting, time to pop some cissus.
Off day tomorrow but in the gym the following day.
Also, since it's Friday, I had pizza tonight : izza:

Days 32 & 33
Day 32: Off
Day 33: 40mg, 20 pre & 20 post.
The weight is somewhat deceiving. I had a couple of beers the previous evening and I always blowup/retain water the next day. This morning (day 34), I'm back down to 242.5lbs.
I started on the bench press and after warming up, I really had an uncomfortable pump going. I felt really tight, so I only went up to 225lbs and did as many reps as possible (14). I then moved on to incline db presses. It was a good workout, but all my joints were a little sore/dry.
Still no noticeable negative side effects to report.
Today is an off-day, tomorrow, day 35, will be 40mg & pulling/legs.

30 days of Pulsing, by the numbers
The numbers are in for my first 30 days of pulsing. I use a website to track measurement and to calculate bodyfat. Here is where I'm at after a month:
Begin / Current
238.5 / 242.5 (+4lbs)
196.16 / 201.63 (+5.47lbs)
41.84 / 40.87 (-.97 lbs)
17.58 / 16.85 (-4.2%)
Pretty impressive numbers. I've added 5.5lbs of muscle and dropped almost a pound of fat. I said I was going to cut and I sorta did the first 2 weeks. The past 2-3 weeks, I've just tried to "watch" what I eat and have done a fairly good job. I have enough epithin-e for another 4 weeks. I plan to do more cardio during the next 4 weeks. -Ed

Looks like you're right on track.

Weight: 242.5lbs (+4lbs)
dosage: 40mg (10 in the a.m., 20 Pre & 10 post)
Workout: Very good!
-For the final 4 weeks of this, I'm changing my workout just a bit. I'm going to have a power day and then a higher rep, lighter day. My power day will be squats, bench press/incline presses and then cleans or deads. My light day will be pullups, dips, pulldowns, curls, rowing, stuff like that. Each day will be followed up with some type of cardio. Yesterday was a "light" day followed up with 10 minutes of HIIT on a stationary bike. I was in a bit of foul mood so I took it out on the weights! I had my pulse in the 155 range when I was doing HIIT.
I won't lift today or tomorrow, but will be back at it on Friday. My libido might be down just a notch, but I haven't felt the greatest the past few days, so maybe that has something to do with it? That's about the only thing noticable right now.
