    Stats:
    5'10
    pre cycle weight: 160 lbs
    post cycle weight: 169 lbs
    Squat: 340 1RM
    Bench: 230 1RM
    Clean: 240 1RM

    Diet:
    I haven't been counting cals lately and I've put on a few pounds of fat during this cycle. I will be eating a macro breakdown of 50%/30%-35%/15%-20%: Carbs/Protein/Fat
    and hitting anywhere from 3000-3500 cals per day.

    I probably won't be updating this log every single day. I will report on mood, libido, strength, and just how I'm generally feeling. I will also be commenting on Adrenaline during this log since I just received it and it's a new supplement for me. I have a SERM on hand in case any problems arise, but I anticipate that won't be necessary.


  2. That sir is a fantastic looking PCT (as well as support supps).

    When are you starting the Retain? I would wait a week into pct, personally.

  3. Day 1:

    Today is an off day from the gym.

    Took 1 Powerfull an hour before breakfast.

    Applied 5 pumps of Dermacrine Sustain after morning shower. The Dermacrine Sustain is thicker than the regular Dermacrine and makes for easy application. Sometimes the Dermacrine would escape my fingers and I lost a little bit each application but I don't think I will encounter the same problem with Sustain.

    Took 2 caps Post Cycle Support and 1 cap Retain 2 with breakfast.

    Thanks Travis, I'll take your advice and hold off on the Retain 2 for a week.

    Lol, the nads are looking and feeling kinda small at this point...but suppression only became really noticable during the last week. My girlfriend was commenting on how small they were when we took a shower together this morning, it was quite funny.

    On a side note, I took two caps of Adrenaline about two hours ago. I am feeling a clean energy, but not jittery. I am also feeling a sense of Euphoria. I think that Adrenaline is going to be a very helpful tool for my workouts during PCT. I will hold off on making any more general comments/comparisons on this stim until I use it a few more times.

  8. Good Luck Bro! Subbed.

  9. Day 3:

    Yesterday I went to the gym and did 50 min. cardio on the elliptical machine.

    Today had a 1 hour 45 min. workout followed by 15 minutes of stretching. My workouts are long because I am on a high volume powerlifting program that requires 2-3 min. breaks between sets. I didn't have the same intensity as usual during this workout, but I gained so much strength on my cycle that it is now easy to throw around weights that were hard to throw around before the cycle started .

    Adrenaline is proving to be an awesome stimulant. This morning I had absolutely zero desire to workout. I popped 2 Adrenaline and an hour later I was rearing to go. The same thing happened yesterday with cardio.

    During the last two days I've caught myself randomly staring at girls, which is something I haven't done since the cycle started, lol.

    I have been dosing all supplements as directed on the bottles except I'm holding off on Retain 2 until Saturday.

  10. This looks fantastic. Well thought out!!!

    It's my pleasure to be one of the first to log such a solid product.

  15. Day 5:

    Yesterday I did 45 min. cardio on the elliptical in the morning and had a 2 hour workout at night. I was actually feeling very good during this workout, I attribute some of it to the Adrenaline which has been giving me a great drive in the gym and some of it to the fact that I have not lost any strength since the cycle ended.

    Today I went to the gym and did some abs and stabilization work followed by 45 min. of cardio on a stationary bike.

    I am loving Adrenaline. It is now in the top 1-2 spot out of all of the stims I’ve ever tried. RPM is my number one favorite (of course this has more than just a stim effect) and Adrenaline gives me motivation/drive in the gym equivalent to RPM. If anyone is interested in trying a new stim, I highly recommend Adrenaline.

    My libido has taken a dip over the last few days, but I still have some desire. My girlfriend just started her period so it couldn’t have come at a better time, lol!

    Overall I have been feeling great so far in this post cycle therapy. During my cycle I was eating too many starchy carbs with each meal and not enough fruits and vegetables. Since I started PCT I have been incorporating fruits and vegetables with every meal while cutting back on the starches, but at the same time keeping my calorie intake very high. I have already noticed a welcomed reduction in body fat this week. I don’t feel like I’m in limbo in this post cycle therapy so far because my diet is spot on and I’m seeing results.

  16. was there a log for the cycle?

    Regretfully, no there wasn't.

  18. Day 7:

    Yesterday: 1 hr. 40 min. workout followed by 10 min. of stretching. I then had a protein shake, bagel, and banana and then played in a 1 hr. soccer game. It was a playoff game for the intramural soccer league at my school and my team lost, so unfortunately now the season is over. We had a soccer party afterward and I cheated with a few slices of pizza and I also had a few beers for the first time in about 8 weeks, which was niiice.

    Today: 2 hr. workout in the afternoon. I weighed in today and I am down 2 lbs. to 167, but I have shed some body fat. I must have gained some strength at the end of last week because I set new records on a couple of exercises today. First week of PCT is finished, and I didn’t lose strength on a single exercise so I’m stoked.

    Upon awakening this morning I noticed that my balls are slightly larger. Hopefully this will be a continuing trend.

    I have still been dosing everything according to directions on the bottles. Only thing that has changed is I’m starting to notice a slight tolerance for Adrenaline.

    Yesterday and today my libido has been getting better. It’s not as high as pre-cycle but it’s getting there. I also experienced a random erection a few hours ago.

    Subjectively I feel as though I’ve normalized, however I know that my test is in the gutter and my hormones must be out of whack. I have not experienced any emotional problems thus far, I have only felt good (it’s nice not to be getting pissed off at every little thing; my temper was getting ridiculous in week 6 of the cycle).

  19. jesus no wonder you're ripped. you're active as hell. keep it up.

    Thanks man, I work hard to stay relatively lean year round.

  21. Day 10:

    Two days ago I started Retain 2.

    Yesterday: 30 min. cardio on elliptical.

    Today: 1 hr. 45 min. workout in the afternoon followed by 15 min. of stretching. It was a sh*tty day in the gym because I’ve lost strength on my squats. This is what I was supposed to do: 190(10) 220(5) 255(5) 290(5) 295(5) 305(5) but when I went for the 295(5) my legs buckled on the 4th rep. I suppose I shouldn’t be that pissed off because I was struggling to hit that 295(5) by myself and I needed a spot for the 305(5) while on cycle. Now that I think about it the 1 rep maxes that I posted at the beginning of the log must be inaccurate.

    Good news is that I’m noticing less atrophy of the boys each day, though they are not back to normal size yet. My f*ck drive has been coming and going…I’ll really be in the mood at a few times during the day but I’m still not back to normal—which is pretty high.

    Last week I was noticing a sort of foggy feeling around early evening, where I just wouldn’t be paying attention and just feeling kinda apathetic. I would be watching TV but notice I was zoned out and not even paying attention. I’ve been feeling great overall so this hasn’t bothered me but its nice to note that I haven’t felt this way the last few days at all.

  22. Sounds good so far. I always expect performance to drop a little in PCT. The retain should help with the early evening foggyness I believe. Sounds sorta like an elevated cortisol issue, not positive on that though.

    Now that you mention it the evening foggyness went away at the same time I started the Retain 2.

  24. Day 12: HAPPY HALLOWEEN B*TCHES!!!

    Yesterday: 45 min. cardio on elliptical machine in the morning and a 2 hr. workout in the evening. Preacher curls suck ass…I’m starting to get tennis elbow and I’m positive this is the culprit. I have not noticed a full pump from isolation exercises since I started PCT, but I suppose that is to be expected.

    Today: Abs/Stabilization followed by 45 min. of cardio on the elliptical machine.

    Nothing else to note except my nuts are pretty damn near back to normal size.

    Word.

  26. Day 17:

    Workouts have been going well. I took an extra day off last week to give my legs some rest and then I had a killer leg workout the day after. Tomorrow I will be maxing on power cleans and squats.

    Dermacrine Sustain gives me this weird foreign body odor that I hadn’t noticed until recently.

    Libido is good but it’s still not back to where it was pre-cycle. The family jewels are back to normal size though.

    I’ve decided to start a new diet soon. I think I’m going to do a version of carb cycling for a while. It will be especially tough for me to adjust because I’ve been eating 400-500 grams of carbs/day for the last 1.5 years and I’ll be switching to 0-30 grams of carbs per day w/ weekend carb ups. Four years ago I was 25 lbs. heavier than I am now and I got there with a high protein/high fat diet. I gained weight much quicker on that diet so I think I will respond well once my body adjusts.

    Good luck with the new diet. Let us know how it goes. I'm considering trying out the whole carb cycling idea myself.
