Nah I just double checked its not a PH, but it acts a lot like one. I have take PCT for it before, but I haven't ordered it yet. I will prob be ordering it when I order my next tub of protein. I like to spread my purchases out so I tell myself I'm not spending too much $. lol
Eh, you have a headstart on me and you are actually eating to bulk... It should be fairly even.
I like the feet up for that reason, but also to take the pressure off of my lowerback. I cramp bad in my hips sometimes as well. I can't really bridge up at all in my back.Log: http://anabolicminds.com/forum/workout-logs/226478-country-gets-huge.html#post3905023

Lol, I dunno. It's doesn't contain any precursors to anything crazy, I don't know the technical definition of a PH by the letter, all I know is it works, I have only ever seen 1 or 2 cases of light suppression among thousands of users, and it works for me.
I like to workout around 4.
I once stacked ghenerate and IGH1 with natadrol followed with formadrol, and it was insane. That was almost 3 years ago now I think? wow. time flies.
Eh, day to day gains don't count for much. I have been gaining around 1 -2 pounds per week if that. I need to start upping my food intake.

I'm buyin this stuff haha you got me excited

I like it alot. If you look around you will see others feel the same.
10-15 pounds, 120 lbs deadlift max, a big jump in squat, and 30 pounds or so onto my bench max. Stayed lean and fast too. I was running a 4.5 40 time. Deadlifted 315 for 31 reps at a powerman competition (using a trap bar, not barbell). Literally felt like I could take on anyone and anything. I ate around 6-7k cals a day and worked my ass off, and I was in lifting about 1.5 years steadily when I started the stack. I was making some novice gains but they weren't as easy as the 30 pounds were, lol. I was a scrawny 150 pounder, I think I weighed 145 my sophmore year of hs in the fall. By that same time a year later I was 190, and had to cut hard for track season. lol.

I lifted through track season, I couldn't choose just one. Sprinting and lifting are my great loves... love hate relationship there though. Long story. After I hurt my back I just bulked and benched and got to 202 and a 315 bench but couldn't touch legs or low back lol...

Any of you guys into vehicles? other hobbies?
I'm swapping a ford 8.8 axle into my jeep wrangler at the moment and just started tearing down the new axle. Working on this kinda stuff is actually a pretty good workout. Axle weighs like 150 pounds easy... lol.

Haha, I just wanted to get fat
That's pretty sweet what happened to it?
I have at least 5 8.8s in the yard down the road from me that I can pull shafts from at 25 bucks a pop... plus the odds I brake a shaft on an 8.8 are slim to none with the setup I'll be running.
The axle shaft strength tested by Warn Ind:
F8.8= 6,500 (lb. ft.)
D44= 4,600-5,000 (lb. ft.)
D35C= 4,000-4,300 (lb. ft.)
COT: Continuous output torque rating
MOT: Maximum output torque rating
(Numbers from January edition of Fourwheeler, page 60.)
Dana 35 rear axle COT: 870 MOT: 3480
Dana 44 rear axle COT: 1100 MOT: 4460
Ford 8.8 31spline COT: 1360 MOT: 5100
Dana60 semifloat COT: 1500 MOT: 5500]
Basically the 8.8 shafts are 30-40% stronger than d44 shafts. and over 50% stronger than d35 (current axle).
12-01-2012, 05:08 PM
yea if you brake an 8.8 you know your doing pushing the **** out of your rig! 8.8s are nice cause you really never have to worry about them snapping. thats are sick stats though
12-01-2012, 06:58 PM
Yep, between last night and tonight I got it all torn down, ready to cut the brackets off:
I have been studying, eating, lifting, studying, then adding in the axle work on the weekends lol.
I forgot my gym closes at 2 today, but I am sore as hell, esp my lower back, so I will take an off day. legs, arms, and chest are all still sore, along with the lower back. So I don't think I really needed the workout haha. I might hit abs tonight just for the hell of it.
Max legal tire size in PA is 37s, so the 8.8 will be fine. I am trying to decide between a hp30 front, hp44 (same weakspot at the 760 u joints in the axle shafts when upgraded) or going to something even bigger. I have a locker in the d30 already, so I figure if I can find a hp30 w/4.10s, I can swap the locker over, beef up the shafts and u joints and unit bearings, gusset the C's and sleeve the axle, It should hold up to 37s.

Feel like trash... Too much coffee and studying for finals and not enough sleep. Lol. Thts my excuse at least. Doing back but not getting very far...
12-03-2012, 02:27 PM
Well the workout did end up okay. I got home and forgot to eat then worked outside cutting some brackets off then studied. Ate a ton of pizza then... Lol. So much for a diet. I drank about 5 cups of skim milk though so that helped some I'm sure. Was super hungry today at lunch. So I take that as a good sign. Gona try legs today but hold back on the weight and try and go for 10-12 reps. I am thinking 225 for a warm up set and then 275 for 3 sets as many as I can get. Shoot for 10-12.
Do some alternating BB lunges, hack squat leg press. Left tendon under my left knee has felt weird lately.
Writing a short research paper on SI joint dysfunction which is what I have. Kind of interesting.

Legs were good. Hacked 135x7,7 in smith til the rack opened up. Squat 135x7 225x12 275x12,10 250x 10
Bb lunge 115x7. Felt like my pelvis was dangling from my spine so stopped. Idk if it was just going to. Them from squats or what. Then I did 225 hack squat x12. Showed my buddies how to do a power clean/push press/ front squat super rep. And get form right. Then did leg press 225x20 315x15. Weight was 176.
Good energy in the gym despite feeling bad. I am gona try and do chest today. I have a big day tomorrow with 2 final papers bio lab practical test and a human chem exam. I should be fine though.

Thanks man I have been pushing legs real hard. The food available to me at school is killing me though it's all packed with so much garbage my body doesn't like it.Originally Posted by y0lked
Freshman pT student has it's perks I guess. Lol.
Today was chest.
Bench 135x7. 185x3. 225x8,7,7(spot last rep) 135x16 with legs up.
Rest of workout was super sets.
Db bench ss w/ dips.
Flat 80s x 12 +12 dips. Incline 80s x7 plus 10 dips. Decline 80s x 10 plus 7 dips.
Machine flys ss w/ under grip bench.
I was dead at the end. Bench was strong. Good day.
Weight at 176. I feel good.
Still have that pinch in my rhomboid I hve had for 6 weeks or so. And my right neck is tight. Cervical spine likes to pop and crack and gets sore. I'm trying to avoid popping it so it heals.
12-05-2012, 03:40 PM
Back is sore AF today, oh well. Going to do a sorta of full body/core day instead of taking a rest day. I believe I just aced my final bio lab practical of the year so I need to blow off some steam before I sit down and study for my chem exam in 3.5 hours. Hopefully work out the kinks in my back and just get the blood flowing and relax. Not the kind of day for a PR.
12-05-2012, 08:07 PM
Strong fawkin numbers bro! How did you fuk ur back up? I know that exact same pinch and tightness i get it from a strain doing military presses some times and its a bitch of a 2 week heal!!!
12-05-2012, 08:50 PM
I'm on about 6 weeks. Going to doc over break.Originally Posted by y0lked
I had si joint issues starting around 14. Had dislocated before. But then senior year running a timed 40 for football blew my joint out bad. I warmed up good but still happened. Idk. Came back to ball without letting it heal right but coached wanted me to. I then messed it up real bad and pinched a nerve and apparently somehow fractured my spine.... Bad joint damage is the worst part now.

Man I feel for you! Hope you can make a full recovery eventually.Originally Posted by CountryLiftin

squat - 135x7,7
deadlift 225x 1,1 315x1, 405x1, 445x1, 315x19
Leg press (really deep, as in I had to like stand up to get my legs in and fall out of it.)
Lat pulldown (cable) 10x15,10
low back extension 130x10,10
Feeling like an animal despite various aches and pains that I had coming into this "cycle". As I mentioned I will be seeing a doc for my back, and maybe asking him about my knee. Back is my main concern. Good strong workout. The 445 felt pretty easy. I think I coulda done another 20 pounds.
Diet was pretty good today, and I ate alot.
Shot some video of my deadlift to critique my form. My back rounded a little under 445 (no crap) but overall good, I need to keep my butt down. Due to my long legs and short torso it's tough for me to get down, esp with my old hammy/back issues. I used a belt today to help keep my straight. Had to strap up too. My grip ain't what it used to be.

I'd work on what you've already mentioned. See if you can sit down a little bit more. Make sure your back is correct before you begin the lift. I make sure I get set up perfect on the bar, pull the slack out and build up the tension and then pull. Maybe try not rolling the bar into you and starting the pull from that if that makes sense. Im no expert, you know I'm still workin on my form too. Other than that, that's some pretty heavy ass weight bud.
12-06-2012, 11:17 PM
Form is always a work in progress, I don't think you can ever get too good. Good form + max don't often mix either.
