Drive during PCT - Log
- 10-05-2007, 07:29 AM
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.

Keep in mind that I changed my diet to 6 meals, 2400 cals a day. This alone could cause a change in body comp. However, it seems that Drive is adding a little "edge" to the equation. Especially since I haven't lost any muscle. (I probably added a lb or two of LBM.) I can't say for sure. I'm going to continue to log this all the way through the end of the bottle which should be about 27 days.

Drive on empty stomach at 9am about 1 1/2 hours after breakfast. I eat right when I wake up and find it difficult to take Drive then wait an hour.
Today was my day off from work so I went to the gym around 12:30
Back and Biceps
Close Grip Pull Ups x 3
Dumbbell Rows x 3
Wide Grip Pully Rows x 3
Wide Grip Pull Downs x 3
BarBell Curls x 4
Cybex Curls x 3
Incline DumbBell Curls x 3
Pumps/Vascularity: Good bicep and back pump. Back actually hurts a bit from it.
Endurance: Great from beginning of workout to the end
Aggression: Ready for my workout
Libido: Up a bit. I'm not super horney yet.
Muscle Density/Hardening: Muscles feel good
Overall Energy: Good today
Personal Commentary: I feel good today. I had a solid workout. I increased some weight and reps. Moving forward instead of backward during post cycle therapy is a big bonus. I'm going to continue to run this product and log it as I go.
Like I mentioned before, "Drive" seems to give me a bit of an edge. Since I haven't run a PH cycle before, I don't know what post cycle therapy feels like without it. However, from what I've heard, PCT causes muscle loss, lethargy, depression, etc. So far I have experienced the depression. However, I am predisposed to it and have been treated for it since I was 17. Whether or not PCT exacerbated my symptoms is debatable, though I would lean toward it doing just that.
Given that I haven't so much as lost 1 lb of LBM, I would have to attribute that to, at least in part, the Drive. I look forward to trying out other AN products such as RPM.

maybe rms could answer this. does drive's ai capabilities eliminate a need to run an ai post cycle or should one be included as a precaution?

Increased dose to 3 pills at 9am, 1 1/2 hours after breakfast and again at 7 pm on an empty stomach.
Workout at 8pm.
Arnold Presses x 4
Incline Lateral Raises
Pumps/Vascularity: Still feeling back pumps from yesterday. Shoulders felt good.
Focus: Good focus today
Libido: coming back
Muscle Density/Hardening: same
Overall Energy: Good today
Personal Commentary: Great workout. Increased weight on Arnold Presses and upright rows.
10-14-2007, 06:47 PM
Rest day. 3 Drive at 7 am. 3 Drive at 7pm.
Drive at 8am. Again at 3pm.
Workout at 4pm. Legs
Squats x 3
Dead Lifts x 3
Hack Squats x 3
Lying Leg Curls x 3
Standing Calf Raises x 3
Seated Calf Raises x 3
Weight 192 BF 17.2%
Not too happy about the weight. However, I may have been a bit dehydrated. My pants still don't fit any looser. I may be too high on calories still. I don't want to decrease them too much because I don't want to lose any muscle. I think I'm going to run my next PH cycle at this caloric level to cut a bit.
Strength - Up on Squats, Deads and Hacks. Down on Leg Curls.
Pumps/Vascularity: Veins are much more noticeable in arms.
Endurance: Great from beginning of workout to the end
Aggression: Nothing to write home about
Libido: Wet Dream yesterday during nap.
Muscle Density/Hardening: no change
Overall Energy: pretty good today
I did PM Lanbane and ask for another bottle of Drive for my freebie. I'm going to use it so I can run the rest of my PCT with 6 per day. I've got until the 26th when my PCT is finished. I'll run the Drive until my next PH cycle, PPlex/Eform/RPM

i definately wasn't expecting that one. i had one at the very beginning of my post cycle therapy when I started to take the Torem. I guess I need to play tug-o-war with the one eyed cyclopse more often.

I agree. I felt like I was putting on too much fat. It wasn't the best idea, thats for sure. Next time I will nail it. Can't wait for my PP cycle. Its amazing how much I've learned in the three months I've been on this site. The more I know, the more I know I don't know!
I was just like all the other nublets that pop on here and have NO clue about what they are taking and what PCT is. Thankfully I was able to secure the proper PCT chems and have been doing pretty good. And thankfully, Matthew76 took me under his wing and showed me the ropes. Thanks Matt!

I'm in the habit now of eating as soon as I wake up at 7-7:30 and taking Drive at 9ish. I think that gives my stomach enough time to clear out before I take it.
My 2nd dose was taken at 7pm on an empty stomach.
I did cardio today. 25 minutes on the stairmaster Stairclimber7000 thing. It is actual stairs that collapse and reform to simulate walking up flights of stairs. I walked up "40" flights. Then I got on the recumbant for another 5 minutes.
After my 2nd dose of Drive, I felt a "flush." It was a bizarre feeling and occured about 10-15 minutes after my dose. I had good energy throughout the day and throughout my cardio routine.
A woman (married) commented that I was looking leaner and she could tell I had been "working out." (last saw her a week or two ago.)
