    Workout

    Left shoulder once again slightly bothering me this week as it was last week... I just kept stretching it and nursing it. Got home and did some rotator cuff excercises again.

    I got some PR's, but since today was a hypertrophy day, they weren't my main idea.

    DB Chest Press
    60 x 10
    75 x 10
    80 x 8 x 2 (PR) - Probably Could've pushed the 85's up, but as I said, wasn't shooting for PR's today. Just hypertrophy.

    Preacher Curls SuperSetted with Skullcrushers.
    Ok, So I did 1 set of preacher curls andimmediately went to a bench and did skllcrushers. Did this for all 3 sets.

    70 x 10 x 3 (Last week i did 60 first 2 sets, the 70 the 3rd)
    Skullcrushers
    70 x 8 x 3 (Last week i stuck with 60 x 10 for all 3 sets)

    DB 1 Arm behind the Back tricep Extensions
    35 x 10 x 2

    Incline DB Bench
    65 x 10 x 2
    Went to put the 70's up for my 3rd set, and was too tired.
    Good news is that this was my opening excercise last week, and I essentially beat the numers I did last week for this excercise.

    Tricep Pushdown Supersetted with DB Hammer Curls
    Tricep Pushdowns - New Gym/New Machine.
    75 x 10 x 3

    Dips
    To Failure 3 Sets - Parallel
    10, 10, 9

    EZ Curl Bar Curls
    70 x 9
    Dropset immediately to
    50 x 9

    Did some grip twist and forearm curls to strengthen my forearms as they were paining me post EZ Curls as I have tendonitis in both forearms.

    Only cardio I did was walk my dogs for 15-20 mins.

  10. Looking good man, I like the focus there...I would go for a PR lol o.O

  11. Love to see new PRs on squats. When that happens, you know your working hard! Keep working on that squat, more than likly when you see a big dude, he's got a bigger squat!

    Workout

    Left workout a little early at the end. had pretty intense back pumps. Last week I had them but they were worse this week. Lasted about 20-30 mins post workout. I only had 60 ounces of water before I hit the gym today so maybe that was the issue? Dunno. Fuking killer though.

    As stated, I didnt finish this out. Back pumps were a bit too much. Plus I was pretty gassed at this point.

  16. Not enough water could def. be the reason your back pumps are worse. water, potassium and taurine should take care of it, if not well. thats very odd, it cures most peoples.

  17. Too sleepy. Diet not logged. Memorial Day = Ribs, Corn on the cobb, pork, beef, felt good man.


    H Drol Cycle: Day 15 - (Overall: 29 days)

    Workout


    Flat Dumbbell Bench
    75 x 10
    80 x 8
    85 x 6 (PR)
    90 x 3 (PR) - Probably shouldnt have gone for the 90's but I wanted to see if I could do it. Was actually surprised to push them up. Felt really good

    Shoulder Dumbbell Press
    50 x 10
    60 x 6 x 3
    65 x FAIL
    Ok, I went to a new gym. The seats had the straight back, but the actual seat portion like curved upwards. Making my posture very awkward. I felt as if I was gonna fall off the front and lose my balance the entire time. I dont think strength was down, I blame the seats and I think they may've gotten to me as well.

    Bent Over Barbell Rows
    No back pumps today. had them yesterday. Weird. The back pumps also only happen in my lower back, so maybe its only when i work my lower back? Dunno.
    135 x 8
    155 x 6
    165 x 6 (PR)
    175 x 6 (PR)

    I'm not sure, so dont quote me but Back pumps i think have something to do with the kidneys and the water that develops around them.

    Lifts shooting up, but I dunno if Im eating enough. Stable weight likely means fat loss and muscle gained though as my lifts are all increased.

  21. yeah man ive noticed once you get used to a certian gym and their style of equipment, going to a new one can make some lifts feel akward. Nice log. cant wait to see the after pics. I did a Mdrol cycle a year ago and it made a huge differance. I might try this depending on how yours turns out.

    Power Up Legs! Some PR's, but Squats was more of a form workout. I was working out with sword_ from the other forum I visit, and he was showing me some things and giving me tips on my deadlifts and squats. Dude squats 445 for reps, and deadlifts 550+

    Barbell Squats
    135 x 10
    205 x 6

    Could've hit 235, maybe more, but as I said, form technique was key.

    Deadlifts
    135 x 10
    225 x 5
    245 x 5
    265 x 5 (PR)
    275 x 5 (PR)
    Could've gone for 295 here. Sword_ told me my form was really good, felt damn good coming from a guy who deadlifts 560+

    Seated Calf Raise
    180 x 10
    225 x 10
    270 x 8
    225 x 8 x 2

    Did Pull Thrus, no idea on weight. Sword was showing me how to do them, I think I did em wrong.

    Lying Leg Curl

    Damn man. Do you see a difference in your physique at all?

    Not to speak for Shay, but we were talking on another thread about recomp effects he's experiencing.
    I feel someone who has a higher BF on any hormonal agent is going to lose BF (unless the cal. intake is incredibly high)
    To each his own, but I can't figure out how this is bad, stronger with less BF is generally the overall goal for most of us.
    I feel that thinking because there isn't a major difference in the scale the cycle was a failure is wrong, I feel it should matter more in the weight you put up, and how you look in the mirror with scale weight simply as a way to keep information about the cycle.

  25. Quote Originally Posted by chocolatemilk View Post

    Chest seems a lot fuller.
    I also measured everything.
    Chest, arms, quads all are bigger. Waist at hips and waist at belly is the exact same. So I have definitely LOST fat and gained muscle.

    Regardless, I was 182 this morning actually, so I have gained weight now.

    Yep, explained it above.
    -------------------------------

    Side note. i got more blood test done today. Should have the results tomorrow.

    Im expecting to see a complete crash of my testosterone. Any guesses? Im going with 75 haha.

    Also interested in seeing my liver levels and RBC, wbc, and platelet counts.


  26. H Drol Cycle: Day 18 - (Overall: 32 days)

    Diet
    Dunno,
    was 1900 thru to dinner. Then we went to Red Lobster. I ate maybe 1/3 of my food, but Im still sure with eating 1.5 cheddar biscuits I pushed 1200 cals there as their cheddar biscuits are 300 cals each!

    Water Intake: 200 Ounces - Does not Include Water Intake at the gym

    Since I dont have 50 post yet I cant link images and Im too lazy to upload em... Actually fuk it, here ya go one sec. Lol.

    Test SHOT WAYYYYY DOWN. Estrogen Shot way up. Liver levels quite elevated. Everything else normal.

    Ill go grab some extra liver support today. But, Ive where the ALT for some people went as high as 200 in 4 week cycles, so im not overly concerned.

    Im not a drinker, so my liver is just working harder than it ever has really.

  29. no comments on my blood test?
    What do you guys think of my liver levels... 4x baseline. Its got me a little worried. I think Ill likely cut the cycle short to 4 weeks not 5.

    Still feeling 100% fine though, I just am too worried of liver failure.
    I went and bought some Liv 52 though.

  30. No Sides at all
    I feel fine, but due to high AST and ALT levels I will stop this cycle at 4 weeks. I think it hit me early anyhow as gains are starting to taper down. Weight is shooting up though. I was 186 this morning! Holy smokes! Waist 35", so just .5" increase in the waist in 13 pounds...
    Appetite still good, Libidio still good, no headaches, no lethargy, no shut down. Perfectly fine, KNOCK ON WOOD!

    I spoke to my mom about AST and ALT levels and she says the 50 and 100 aren't too alarming, especially with a normal biliburin level. She said if bili levels hit 4 or higher thats liver issues.

    So i did my own research and found ZERO people with post anywhere who had liver damage from a 4-6 week H Drol cycle. I did see a number with liver shutdown from 4-6 week mdrol, s drol cycles. All had Bili lvels in the 8 all the way upto 40+!!!! their AST and ALT levels were also 250-450+. All recovered just fine by the way.

    I keep checking for any liver damage signs like yellowing of the skin, dark urine, pain in abdomen, and all seems fine. So i likely should go 5 weeks, but I just dont wanna risk it. I've gained 13 lbs, and will likely end at 15+ lbs in 4 weeks with minimal if any fat gain so Im fairly content.

    Workout

    I stubbed my big toe really bad Friday at paintball and the nails likely going to come off. it's damn loose, and bleeds a little.
    Due to this, I didn't take it very intensely. I took it light and stuck to movements which wouldnt put pressure on my toe, and no calf excercises obviously.

    Switching the routine up a bit for Monday and Wednesday
    Instead of a 5 x 5 routine Im going to a 8 x 3 routine.
    Layne Norton does a 10 sets by 3 reps routine for his power up days, so Ill switch to that similarly.
    Also when i worked out with sword_ last week he did a 8 x 2 routine, and dudes strong as phuck!
