Day 50, all done
Scale says 199, last week travelling hurt me. I'm pretty sure i'd be at 196, maybe 195 had I been home the whole week. Measured up today
I changed workout routines so I can't match apples to apples on strength, but all major exersizes are definitely up. I included my 8/26 numbers just for reference a weight was almost the same as the end of this log. Calves shrank a bit as I didn't work them at all (was on purpose, trying to get calves and biceps to meet in the middle sizewise) but it was mostly fat as their definition has increased noticeably.

bodyfat ? 24% 19-20% (estimated, will get retested this week)
Was quite successful of a cycle I think. I would have liked to have ended the cycle a few pounds lighter (and bigger measurements ) but 7 lbs lost in 7 weeks with strength gains on non hormonal products sounds pretty good to me!
X-factor - I definitely noticed the doms towards the latter half of the log. The product seems to meet its claims pretty well. Until I get my bf calipered at the gym again by the same person its hard to make LBM gain claims, but my guesstimate would be that while loosing 7lbs of scale I really lost 9-10lbs of fat and added 2-3 lbs of LBM. I feel harder and denser in the upper boddy. I'm starting to get close to body weight in wide grip lat pulldowns I noticed no significant side effects either. I will quite likely use x-factor again, possibly even during post cycle therapy in late jan/feb. I would go with 3 bottles for 60 days instead next time I think, largely to help with the kick in factor, and to lengthen the "active" time.
Superdrol NG - I think my yohimbe tolerance built WAY fast, as I stopped noticing the stim effects of 2 caps after not much more than 10 days. I still noticed 3, but even that started to fade after a few days of 3 preworkout. I suppose its like stims in general, ephedra + caffeine effect different people differently. Outside of that part of the effect, its hard to say what role the other ingredients in SDNG played. I do believe that the over 35 crowd can use the DHEA that is in SDNG, and that at 3 caps a day you get 510mg which is plenty. So nice from that perspective. I may or may not use SDNG again. It would make an interesting support supp for use with original superdrol or a clone, as there is belief that DHEA helps with the lethargy.
