Drive during PCT - Log
- 10-02-2007, 02:49 PM
Well, I have pre-Drive lab work that I got done last Monday. I could always get another panel done. Let me make sure it has test levels on it. I'll pick it up from the Lab on Thursday at the latest.
Also, It seems that I found the culprit for my false meth positives, ABB's "SpeedStack." Its got all sorts of speedy goodies in it. So I will continue the Torem.
I feel pretty good so far coming off cycle. A full report later tonight. I'm doing back/biceps.

Interesting update today.
First Drive taken at 9:50am. Walnuts and cranberries eaten at 10.
2nd Drive taken at 6pm on empty stomach. Next meal, a protein shake eaten at 7.
Within 15 minutes of taking the Drive, I noticed something... different. I can't explain it. Focus maybe. Then, the agression set in. I couldn't wait to hit the weights.
I started lifting at 8:30. Back/Biceps.
I maintained or increased weight/reps on almost every exercise. I was very aggressive and focused.
I took no unusual stims today. No Xenergy, no Speed Stack. Just 2 Diet Pepsis.
Workout looked like this.
3 Sets of:
One Arm Rows
Wide Grip Seated Pully Rows
EZ Bar Preacher Curlz
I also promised I would weigh myself after my workout and a 10 minute visit to the SteamRoom.
Weight 197 - down from 199
Bodyfat % - 17% - down from 18
I believe the reduction in BF is a direct result of my strict diet, keeping it less than 2400 calories a day since last Monday. (8 days of the new diet.) When I was on cycle I got a little loose with my eating.
Bodyweight/Body Comp: Reduction in Bodyfat % and weight.
Pumps/Vascularity: Shoulder vasculariy noticeable
Endurance: Great during workout well into 9:30 pm.
Aggression: Much higher than yesterday
Focus: I definately was more focused today.
Muscle Density/Hardening: Triceps seemed harder today.
Overall Energy: Great today. From when I woke up at 7 till now at 11.
Personal Commentary: I feel great. Who knows if its the Drive. But I'm not experiencing the negatives of going off cycle so far.

I will be using Drive in my PCT, so this is s great log for me to check out before! Thanks Edwards! Looking forward to you getting some great results, because that means I will get some too! But then again, what doesn't give you great results that comes from AN!

1st Drive taken at 9:00 AM
2nd Drive taken at 7:00 PM
I only got 6 hours sleep last night and it was apparent around 4:00pm. I was extremely tired, nodding off in my chair at work, wishing I could crawl into bed and catch a few Zzzzs.
I got a 2nd wind before my workout at 8:30. Today was 30 minutes of Cardio. I did a Stairclimber for 15 minutes and the recumbant bicycle for 10 more.
When I got home, I pigged out on Vanilla Yogurt Cheerios, about 2 bowls worth! (~400-500 calories) I try to throw my body off once a week by adding some extra carbs. However, I am the first to admit that I overdid it!

1st Dose at 6:45 am.
2nd Dose at 7:00 pm.
Today was total and absolute REST. Ahhhhhhh.
Tomorrow is shoulders. I am going to make them pay for getting off easy last week. Boooya

After I took steroids when I was 16, one of my testicles never returned to normal size. I went to a urologist that wanted me to masturbate in a cup while my mother waited in the other room. I respectfully declined and never went back. Consequently, I have one nut the size of a raisin.
Since I started PCT, my good nut has returned to size (as far as I can tell.) My raisin sized testicle is still the same size and will probably remain so for the rest of eternity.
I was feeling lethargic on Wednesday and Thursday. I am positive it was because I only got 6 hours of sleep.
Last night I got 7. So far so good.

I got over having a small nad a long time ago. The ladies don't seem to notice nor care. Who the hell knows if my remaining ball can produce good seed. I really don't care at this point. If I meet someone worthy enough, maybe I'll try to have kids. Until then, I don't sweat it.
I had previously ordered Dermacrine Sustain in case I needed to stop the Torem. However, apparently I entered Dermatherm instead. So now I've got a bottle of Dermatherm that I don't want. I guess I'll send it back, bah.

I got 7 hours of sleep and felt much less tired today.
First dose of Drive at 6:45am. Ate breakfast at 7:15
2nd dose at 7.
I worked out at 8. Shoulders and forearms.
Barbell Military Press x 4
Lateral Raises x 4
Arnold Dumbbell Press x 4
BB Shrug x 4
Upright Row x 4
Front Wrist Curl
Back Wrist Curl
Strength: My strength was up in almost all exercises today. I increased weight across the board.
Bodyweight/Body Comp: Weight was down another lb. Didn't check Bf.
Pumps/Vascularity: my shoulders don't really get pumped
Endurance: good. I did get a bit sleepy around 3 or so. This is typical for me. I am the type of person that could sleep at any given time during the day. However, I seemed to get over the lethargy pretty quick.
Aggression: I wasn't as aggressive as two days ago, but it was noticeable.
Focus: My brain felt a bit scrambled today.
Libido: Haha, I actually got pretty horny checking out this nubian 19y/o at my work. If she only knew...
Muscle Density/Hardening: I *felt* soft today.
Overall Energy: Better than a day ago, but not 100%
Personal Commentary: I felt like a fat cow today. I have no idea why. I put on some pants that I bought and they didn't fit right. I am so sick of this bodyfat. I wish it would melt off of me a lot faster. Overall, my workout was good. I am happy that I am maintaining my strength. I can only hope that the extra lb that left me today was a result of water or fat loss and *not* muscle loss.

try DCP to melt that fat
if you diet right you will lose a lot quicker than without it
and if you cheat it wont hurt you

Days 9 -10
No workouts. I was feeling pretty crappy mentally and forgot to take my PM Drive both days. Saturday I stayed in bed nearly all day. Sunday I got up and out of the house a bit, but I still felt like a turd. I'm going back to work on Monday and will work out afterward. Legs day, woot.

It's that dreaded time during PCT... It will get better! Sometimes all you need is an awesome work out to counter that.

I've got no RPM But I took my drive on an empty stomach this morning. I've got legs tonight. Things are looking up. I'll do a full report before I retire for the evening. Additionally, my protein mix from trueprotein.com arrived a few days ago. I tried it last night. It was pretty good.

Legs Day - Workout was subpar and cut short. I was only able to get in 4 sets of squats and 4 sets of deadlifts. I'll have to make up for calves on day 12.
Strength: I maintained my strength from the previous week in squats and deads.
Bodyweight/Body Comp: I didn't check. I'll check my weight and BF during day 12.
Pumps/Vascularity: nothing noticeable
Endurance: After I took Drive around 7 on an empty stomach, I seemed to feel a little more energy and was looking forward to a good workout.
Aggression: I started feeling some added agression but unfortunately, the workout was cut short.
Focus: I wasn't paying attn.
Muscle Density/Hardening: Nothing noticeable.
Overall Energy: Still tired alot of the time.
Personal Commentary: Unfortunately, my workout got cut short. I was looking forward to getting in a good leg workout, but things happen. I've still been pretty tired. I've got to get to the hospital to pick up my bloodwork from when I got off cycle, just before I started taking Drive. The Doc *told* me my liver values were great, and that everything else was *normal* but I don't know if Test levels were in the work. I've got Chest/Tris tomorrow. (Tuesday.) Sorry for posting this a day late.

I felt a bit leaner this morning when I woke up. I am going to make sure I check my weight on the scale and my bf. I noticed yesterday that the triple beam was off by three lbs! (over) So I've been overestimating my weight for the last few weeks. This will be a bit of a psychological shock.

Day 12 - GOOD NEWS
I've needed some good news to pick me up. Here it is...
True Weight (After workout and steam room) - 197
Bodyfat - 17%
That's good news in my opinion. I realize the hand held bodyfat thingy isn't the most accurate, but when I started, it read 18ish%. So its down a full % which tells me I'm heading in the right direction.
I worked out Chest and Tri's today. Weight and reps were up enough to feel good about it.
Strength: My strength was surprisingly up. I was able to tack an extra 10lbs on bench press and squeeze out another 2 reps on the 4th set. I'm happy.
Bodyweight/Body Comp: Weight steady with a decrease in bf%
Pumps/Vascularity: chest and triceps always seem to get one hell of a pump.
Endurance: Good today.
Aggression: Nothing noticeably different
Libido: Same. I'd do it If I had someone to do it with. But I don't want the trouble. heh
Muscle Density/Hardening: Good. Triceps felt hard as a rock
Overall Energy: Better than the last few days for sure
Personal Commentary: Overall I feel much better than the last few days. I still am somewhat depressed which has more to do with my personality and less to do with the cycle and post cycle (in my opinion) I've struggled off and on with depression since I was 14.
In other news, I've got my next cycle picked out. Got PPlex by CEL on its way. Gonna stack it with RPM and e-form. Probably gonna throw in the rest of my Epi as well, but thats debatable. Got Nolva lined up for PCT.
