Since I had not planned on keeping a log/semi-log I didn't really measure my bf% before hand. When I started getting ready for my cut, beginning Dec. 1 I weighed about 165-7 depending on food/water intake. Now I am weighing in at about 155-7 depending on food/water intake. TEN POUNDS!! Plus I look so much more lean in my face/chest/shoulders. I still have some stomach fat that'd I like to see go, but thats just gonna take some good hard cardio. But overall I look and feel great.
It's funny you mentioned cleaning a bathroom because in the past 1-2 weeks, I've cleaned my car, room, bathroom, and office on top of working out - I have so much energy!
As for what I'm taking after I'm done with this stack, I'm going to keep taking my Kre-Alkalyn to help maintain muscle mass, some bulk yohimbine for fat loss/energy, then later I'm going to test some bulk testofen to help aid in muscle growth. Its kind of a non-steroid/energy semi-bulk. Once I'm through with testofen and Kre-Alkalyn, I'll probably cut one more time (LevR/DCP) before summer, but I'm still not quite sure yet. I wanna be comfortably shirtless my July 1, 2008!!
Feel free to PM me every now and then CK if you want input, or just to say hey and let me know how you're doing. Hope to hear good things!
Oh and John... about those freebies! Just playin' Thanks for keepin' up with CK and I!

Tell me more about this post-cycle therapy, i.e., the products you will be using.
I hear ya bro! I used to have no problem taking my shirt off when I was in HS/College, then when about the mid thirties hit, I just somehow got to having a low self esteem about my appearance on the beach, at the pool etc. NOT THIS YEAR!!!!!!!
LR ROCKS! I got my INCARNATE today! I am going to blow it out tomorrow...., and in the gym too!
Strength definitely going up on biceps. I may check my weight this weekend. Good job on the loss!!!! <--HB

Well, for my "Post Cycle Therapy" lol, it's basically just a way of trying to put on some muscle now that I've dropped some weight/body fat. The Kre-Alkalyn is basically just a PH-Correct type of Creatine. Meaning that it supposedly does not convert to Creatinine (fat) as fast as other types of Creatine. Plus, another benefit from Kre-Alkalyn is low or no water retention. You stay muscular without looking puffy or bloated.
The Yohimbine HCl is one of the ingredients in LevR and is what helps it break up lipids and fight weight gain/fat. I'm taking this just to help keep my fat from increasing while I "bulk". I DON'T WANT ANY FAT TO COME BACK!!
And as for the Testofen, I'm gonna take this to try and help boost my testosterone. My natural test is decent at 21, but I wanna see if a little test boost along with my Kre-Alkalyn will produce some decent results. I'm just aiming for some extra muscle gains before I decide to cut one more time. It's pretty much just going to be an overall trail of a steroid-free supplemental bulk. If it doesn't work, oh well, I learned. But from what I've read from Kre-Alkalyn, and Testofen, I'll probably get some decent gains, especially since I've been cutting lately. We'll see.
Anyways, glad to hear your Incarnate came. I'm tempted to to replace DCP with Incarnate for my next cut (If I can let go of my DCP ) But, I'm definitely looking foward to your results! Keep pushing, we're almost done!!

I began my incarnate on thursday. I have been having those prickly-tingling sensations for about a half hour after taking it and lasting around 30 minutes. It feels weird, but my energy levels (for me of course) are through the roof!!!!!! I wonder what the results will be like after they have beenin my system for about a week or two. I have reduced my LR'd from 4 pills a day to 3 pills a day.
Have a good weekend HB!

Well, I'll be finished by this weekend, I'm gonna miss my LevR boost in the mornings. Oh well, time to move on....
Anyways, you you have a good one too CK, keep working hard!!

Thanks John, Trip and HB. It first hit me when I was doing cardio Thursday. I took my first dose prior to going to the gym and when I was about 5 minutes into my cardio Xtraining (20 mins eliptical/20 mins bike) I felt the BAs kicking in. I had read stories of people having reactions to other types of supplements and since this was the first time I have felt this sensation I could only think that I was having a reaction. I was on the bike so I thought...., "I bet everyone will be staring at me b/c I will probably be breaking out into some sort of rash, etc. No one ever did, and I wasn't about to stop my routine. Anyway, the post workout dosage was AOK b/c I took it with food and felt "nada." Day 2 the BAs were there. I checked myself out afterwards and I was good 2 go. Anyway, it lets me know the INC is there and working.
Also, I can see more improvement within my midsection, and without the loss of any size, from what I can tell. <--- That is a TRUE result as I am my own worst critic, and if I can actually notice it, then I know it is definitely a positive one.

I counted my LRs before I started my INC. I had approx 8 days left going at 4/day. This adjustment will give me around 2 extra days. I thinkit was a good decision all things considered.
What brand of creatine are you using? Tell me more about Testofen.
It would be cool to put back those 10 lbs on, and still be lean as you are now, but I guess that is what we are all trying to do.
Man..... with the really good results I have been getting since I started taking supplements, I wish I would have done so when I was in college, the army etc. But instead I was cheap and did nothing for years and years an years. I supplemented nothing and ,ost likely cheated my body out of some + results. Oh well.......guess I should have reconsidered it when I was out blowing $$$ on wings and beer.

I'm using Ultimate Nutrition's Kre-Alkalyn currently. Unfortunately I had to go outside of Nutraplanet to get it, but NP is sorta limited when it comes to ph-correct Creatines. I believe Millennium Sports Technologies does make a "Kre-Alkalyn" type of Creatine called Kreaceps though. But Kre-Alk is one of my very few non-nutraplanet purchases.
And as for the testofen, I did a quick forum search a found a link that Strategicmove put up on one of the Testofen threads, and it is pretty clear on a description. Here's the link:Testofen
The only other thing I forgot to toss in my list of goodies is my A.I. (Aromatase Inhibitor) which is an estrogen blocker. See, when you take testofen, while it helps boost testosterone levels, your estrogen levels also elevate. By taking an AI you help block the increase of estrogen, and thus getting the full results of your natural testosterone. In a nutshell, your own testosterone is being utilized to the best of it capability, while your estrogen is being held at bay.
I'm just looking forward to some gains, after my cut I feel a little small (glad the weights gone, but I want some muscle!!!) If there's anything else you wanna know, of if I've completely confused you, just let me know! Enjoy your 2 day vacation from work!
01-19-2008, 07:02 PM
I like your stack and am going to take a look into the Testofen. It will have been a while since taking a test booster. I need to do some research on the AI issue. I don't really know much about the whole estrogen thing.
as for me, I don't feel really smaller, but I guess I am. I am happy the midsection is gaining some defintion.... finally!
I bet you'll put some size on though.

Well, yesterday was my last day of LevR. It really feels funny not taking it today. I popped some yohimbine just to try and keep the fat burning going, but I definitely miss the morning boost. Feels like I've lost a family member. As of yesterday, I was down 12 pounds, since Dec. 1. But I didn't eat a whole lot either, so I'd say I lost a solid 10 lbs for sure. Keep me updated for your last few days CK, I wanna hear how the stacks doin' for you!!
