    I'm on my last week of post cycle therapy! I'm taking 30mg of Torem at night before bed, 2 xlean, and I'm taking 3 "Restore" by ALRI with meals and 3 grams of Bulk Cissus. 6 total Drive per day. 3 at 9 am and 3 around 7pm.

    I feel pretty amped right now at 12:30. I've got chest / triceps tonight. Full report when I'm finished.

    Tuesday Oct 16 - Day 19

    Felt real good today. Worked out Chest / Triceps

    I mixed the w/o up a bit. I did decline first then incline then bb press.

    Strength is steadily moving upward.
    I was agressive as hell in the gym and I'm definately feeling an increase in my libido. I'd like to falk everything that moves.

    I tried to get a hold of Lanbane to request a 2nd bottle of Drive as my freebie for doing the logs, but I haven't heard anything back. In fact, I wrote him twice. I guess he's busy(?) I hope he lets me know if he needs more info or whatever, because I'm running out of Drive and need another bottle to keep up the 6 tabs per day.

    Days 20-21

    I took these days off. Day 20 I was feeling a bit lethargic after work and decided not to workout.

    Day 21, Thursday I took off also.

    Friday I'll do back, Saturday Shoulders.

    I think that I should take an entire week off in order to rest. I've been doing the 10 week mass building workout for 12 weeks and I think I need a week for my body to recover. 7 weeks on the H-Drol/Epi cycle and 4 weeks of PCT. What do you all think?

    You need a week off Edward. Let your body heal up - then go back with a fresh new mind-set.

    yea, i think a week off every 3 months or so is a good idea. I'll do light cardio 3x during the week.

    taking a week off might suck during the week out of the gym but you will be so happy you did once you get back in there.

    I couldn't agree more with that. I can't stand being out of the gym, but when I do take a week off it feels incredible to get back there fresh that next week.

    i've made some dramatic gains since i started taking a week off every 8-12 weeks of training. thats opposed to going months and months on end without any time off.

    Day 22

    Back and Biceps today

    Wow I could see veins in my shoulders I've never noticed before. It was pretty cool. I was really trying to improve my "mind / muscle" connection when working my back. I got a solid back pump. I was pretty energetic and had a good workout.

    Day 23

    192 lbs 16.6% BF

    I certainly don't feel it, but it looks like The BF is slowly coming off. I'm sure if I incorporated morning cardio into the mix it would be even faster. I'm just not motivated enough to do it. No excuses.

    Got real tired today at work around 4. Pretty typical for me realy. Drank an energy drink and took some Drive and was ready for my workout at 5. Shoulders today.

    Good workout. Not exceptional, but good. Steamroom was niice. Was happy to see the improved BF numbers.

    It's time to take the week off. Next Sunday will kick off Legs. Until then, I'm on workout vacation! haha

    I'll do some stairstepping and bike work three times this week. I also bought some PFO Pure Fish Oil that is Orange Flavored. I have to cut calories someplace else, but I'd like to incorporate it into my diet.

    Two more days of post cycle therapy and I'm DONE Everything looks pretty good from the cycle.

    Stats:

    I originally gained 10 lbs on cycle. From 188 to 198.
    I was 18.5% BF and had 161lbs LBM.
    Now I am 192 and have 16.5% or 160.3 LBM.
    So thats a loss of .6 lbs of LBM since I started post cycle therapy and a loss of 5 lbs of fat. Not bad.

    thanks. Should i cut my calories by a tiny bit this week since i'm not working out? Maybe from 2400 to 2200 or so on non-cardio days?

    You could cut some carbs out, since you're not doing weights. Maybe around 40 a day would suffice.

    You could work abs with your cardio on your week off - if you wanted. Regardless, enjoy the break!

    Well my Blood Pressure was at 135/90 which is considered "Normal High." It normally is much lower. I wonder if this is residual from the hdrol/epi or if this is due to the Drive.

    edwards,

    Icariin actually has positive effects on BP. I am guessing it's residual effects from cycle.
