Dude, get some Taurine!!!
Superdrol at 10mg gave me brutal lower back pumps!!!
It can't hurt.
OK Guys been doing my research for about 2 months and I finally decide to start a cycle of Phera Plex with a small dose of Superdrol thrown in every day. It was going to look like this:
week 1: 10mg PP, 2.5mg superdrol
week 2: 20mg PP, 5mg superdrol
week 3: 20mg PP, 10mg SD
week 4: 20-30mg PP, depending on how I was feeling
While on cycle I'm taking:
Cycle Support from AI twice a day
5-10g fish oils per day
additional milk thistle
Multi-vitamin 3x per day
3-5g bulk cissus per day
I think I am going to add something else for cholesterol (any suggestions?).
Also considering adding additional B vitamins, and then will have some other stuff on hand in case I need to address certain issues.
I always get at least my bodyweight in protein per day and its going to be 1.5g+/lb this month, calorie intake has been low lately but Im going to really bump it up for this cycle as well.
post cycle therapy is looking like this:
Nolvadex, Retain, Activate, ADT
I was going to add the Powerfull/Cissus stack in there for post cycle therapy as well, what do you guys think? Also since this cycle isnt very suppressive do you think I need the ADT or should the Nolva/Retain/Activate be ok? I def want the Activate because My Libido was so rock bottom before coming into this cycle, if it stays that way I will kill myself. I dont understand why it was so low either Ive never done anything before and Im only 24...
My starting stats are 24 years old 6'3" 218 lbs with an estimated 15% BF on day 1. Ive been lifting off and on for about 8 years and just got really serious about everything 8 months ago. Up until this cycle I have been doing a fairly regular workout with cardio 3-5 times per week and moderate intensity, moderate weight, moderate volume on the iron. During this cycle Im going to really decrease the volume and increase the amount of weight.
Max Bench: 245 x 3
Max deadlift 275 x 5
Max Squat 255 x 4 (just started doing squats again after awhile)
I've never done any real anabolics before so im really psyched. Lets get it started.
Day 1: 218 lbs
Took my first 10mg of Methyl Plex with breakfast and I split up 1 Methyl Drol capsule into 4 parts and dumped 1/4 of it into my protein/Cycle support/cissus shake.
Legs and Shoulders in the gym were pretty much exactly the same as last week, nothing to report differently.
Started to increase caloric intake, my body isnt used to this many calories.
Day 2: 223 lbs! (however this was weighing myself at the end of the day vs beginning of day 1, so Im not counting it at all)
Took 10mg of MP and 1/4 capsule of MD in my shake again this morning. I felt really good today like I havent in awhile and sex drive already seems to be doing better. This is great because my libido was so hurt it was depressing me. I felt pretty tired most of the afternoon even though I had got about 8 hours of sleep.
Chest / Tris
Tiredness went away after I took some NO Xplod but that didnt help the gym.
Benched 245 x 3 again, 205 on the incline bench is actually less than last week.
flat bench dumb bells: 65 x 10, 70 x 6, 75 x 5
Lying tricep extensions: 25 x 10, 30 x 8, 35 x5
cable pulldowns: 7 x 10, 8 x 10, 9 x 8
close grip bench (smith machine): 45+10 either side x 10, 45+25 either side x 8
Felt tired/weak so I cut the workout short.
Calories were up extremely high today protein leading the way as far as ratios go.
Dude, get some Taurine!!!
Superdrol at 10mg gave me brutal lower back pumps!!!
It can't hurt.
Yea the back pumps are something I was was getting ready for, I work for GNC so I have all these sups available to me on a daily basis. Ill pick up some Taurine tomorrow.Originally Posted by klugman
Im hitting the gym right now and will post a day 3 summary later.
Thanks for the tips, keep em coming.
Got up a little late today but took 10mg Methyl plex and 1/4 worth of a methyl drol @ noon with my protein shake and breakfast.
Back / Bi at the gym today:
Hammer curl: 45 x 8, 50 x 5, x 4
seated preacher barbell: 65 x 10, 75 x 6, 85 x 4, x 3
standing preacher dumbell: 30 x 10, 40 x 7, 45 x 5
Dead lift: 225x8 275x6, 315x2 (forgot my straps so probably coulda done 1 or 2 more @ 3 plates)
standing barbell row, smith machine: 105 x 10, 155 x 9, 175 x 6
Seated lat pulldowns: 120 x 10, 130 x 9, 140 x 6
Kneeling dumb bell rows: 65 x 10, 70 x 8, 75 x 7
Maybe noticed a little more strength in back but nothing super, Bis didnt seem to get any better since last week.
So as far as these back pumps go could someone describe them a little better. Today for the first time my lower back felt a lot tighter than usual and this was as soon as I got out of bed in the AM. Its persisted throughout the day so far, would this be what you guys are calling the pump from Superdrol?
Some other thoughts: Going to definitely keep up the less volume with heavier weights for the rest of the month, as I think it is a good change from what I was doing.
Feeling of well being is still persisting and as I mentioned that is definitely a change from how I had been feeling for the previous week or two, and Libido seems to still be doing good. No noticeable differences in my ball size yet. I think I may start the extra 10mg of Plex sooner than week 2 as it seems a lot of people started out right at 20mg per day and I am a pretty big guy so I think I can handle it. Methyl drol will stay at 2.5g per day for another couple days though at least.
Day 4 was an off day but I def upped the dose of methyl plex to 20 mg per day, one in the AM one in the PM. Methyl Drol is upped to about 3mg / day now. Does anyone know if this stuff is better to take on an empty stomach or with food, I have heard both and not sure about the fat solubility of it.
224 lbs at the gym, but it was at the end of the day again. Calorie intake remains high so Im saying this is a solid 1 lb gain so far at least, muscle or fat is still to be determined.
Hammer curls: 40x10, 45x8, 50x5
Seated incline curls: 25x10, 30x8, 35x6
Standing bumb bell preacher: 35x10, 40x7, 45x5
Standing olympic barbell curl: 65x10, 85x8, 105x5
skull crushers: (elbow kills on these) ez curl bar+30 lbs x 10, + 50 lbs x 10, x 9
overhead one arm dumb bell extensions: 25x10, 30x8, 35x5
overhead two arm extensions: 60x10, 65x10, 70x9
inverted cable pulldowns: 6x10, 7x10, 8x8
I didnt notice any strength gains yet and the numbers seem to represent that. I have noticed that Im sleeping much more and seem to be semi tired in the afternoons when I didnt used to be. Im hoping next week the gains will really start kicking in as I give each muscle group its second go round this cycle.
I started taking Flax seed today and 100mg B vitamin complex which Im gonna take a couple times a day for energy and to help with cholesterol (niacin). We'll see how this goes.
Oh yea Im doing like 2-4g bulk cissus a day or an estimated, anyone know how long that stuff takes to start working really? My joints seem a little drier than usual and my one elbow that always hurts on tris is getting bad as weights increase.
Red yeast rice is highly recommended while usinf Superdrol. Superdrol screws your lipids levels very badly. Policonasol and garlic may also be helpful.
he's on AI Cycle Support which has that in it.Originally Posted by william3162
this is in the wrong section too btw.
The methyl makes how you take the pills irrelevant. I got calf pumps running at 15 mgs of superdrol, but I was also taking 1-AD. No back pump problems. Most people do not have trouble with back pumps until they get to 20mgs or higher superdrol. At 7.5 mg of PP and 2.5 mgs of superdrol twice a day, I felt great and turned into insane flirt. Good luck.Originally Posted by Jaywalh
Day 8 225 lbs!
Chest / Tris
Lemme preface todays workout by saying strength was up all around. Definitely noticed it for the first time this cycle, I love it. Libido is also doing extremely well and I just feel great in general.
flat bench: 185x10, 225x7, 245x4, 275x2 (275 was more or less just to see if I could do it, had minimal but noticeable help from a spotter on the second rep)
incline bench: 165x10, 185x8, 205x6 x4 ( i hate incline)
flat dumbell press: 65x10, 70x9, 75x8
incline dumbell: 55x10, 60x10, 65x8
flat flys: 35x10, 40x10, 45x8
seated 1 arm extensions: 25x10, 30x8, 35x6
close grip bench(smith machine): 45 each side x10, 45+10 x 10, 45+25x7, x5
single arm inverted cable pulldowns: 3x10, 4x9, 5x6
Yea I feel awesome day in and day out, im at 10mg PP (well Methyl Plex but more or less the same thing) and 2.5mg Methyl Drol twice a day right now and its awesome. Insane flirt I would say is pretty accurate Werewolf, and libido is off the wall. Strength gains are really coming this week now too. I love this stuff!Originally Posted by Werewolf
Hey PistonPump, sorry man what did you mean this is the wrong place for this? You mean my thread/log is in the wrong area if so sorry man, and can I or someone else move it for that matter?
Probably should be in "cycle info"
-Saving random peoples' nuts, one pair at at time... PCT info:
-Are you really ready for a cycle? Read this link and be honest:
*I am not a medical expert, my opinions are not professional, and I strongly suggest doing research of your own.*
Day 9 229 lbs! (damn, Im measuring at the end of the day almost daily now but that is still nearly 7 lbs since I started. Im pretty sure most of it is muscle as Im def cutting up and gaining barely any fat)
Was gonna be shoulders and legs but I hit only shoulders:
Dumbell press: 55x10, 60x10, 65x10, 70x7 (this was insane and I felt strong/kept great form)
Behind the head smith machine military press: one 45 each sidex10, 45+10x10, 45+25x7
smith machine shrugs: 1 45x10, 45+25x10, 45+25+10x10, 2 45sx8
smith upright rows: 25 each sidex10, 45x9, 45+10x6
Dumbell shrugs: 55x10, 60x10, 65x10, 70x8
I called it after that as I was pressed for time but my energy/endurance was great and I really wanted to do more. Strength is really up and each set felt awesome. I think I should have gone heavier on a lot of these because I dont like consecutive sets of 10 reps on most exercises but Im feeling this workout still and I think it was real productive. Focused on form more than ever for shoulders exercises too.
Really going to try to up the calorie intake, but man is it hard. I think I hit about 4000 everyday however I should be shooting for 6000+ I feel. Its funny Ive always been overweight my whole life until this year so my body isnt used to trying to take in more calories than its supposed, ive always tried to keep calories to a minimum. Thank god for weight gainers!!
I was feeling sick for a couple days so my schedule got ****ed up and I only trained every other day or so, however Strength is noticeably up all around and Im really looking bigger.
Day 15 230 lbs
Shoulders: I was throwing the weight around for shoulders today, strength way up.
Dumbell press: 65x10, 70x9, 75x8
behind the head smith presses: 45 ea sidex10, 45+25x10, 2 45sx9
upright row smith machine: 25 ea sidex10, 25+10x9, 45x7
smith shrugs: 45 each sidex10, 45+25x10, 2 45sx10
dumbell shrugs: 65x10, 70x10, 75x8
forward lateral raise with barbell: 45x10, 55x9, 65x8
Did a forearm workout after that as well.
Day 16 232 lbs!
into week 3 now and like I said Strength is really up, and people are commenting everywhere I go, Both people I know and strangers. Calories have really been up lately as well, even though protein probably hasnt been as high as it should be the last couple days Im getting 1g/lb at least but I should be getting more.
Chest day: (was gonna be chest and Tris but my Tris are still sore from Arms day sunday)
flat bench: 185x10, 225x9, 245x5, 275 (once entirely on my own)
Incline bench: 135x10, 185x10, 205x8, 225x5
flat barbell press: 65x10, 70x8, 75x7
decline smith machine: 45 each sidex10, 45+25x10, 2 45sx9
decline dumbbell flys: 40x10, 50x10
and then I messed around on the cables for about 4 sets not worth mentioning.
I should post up some pictures soon because my entire upper body is really coming along nice except for my chest. I think im sitting at about 15% or so bodyfat but Ive always had man boobs I think extra tissue from gyno during puberty maybe? I dont know but its so annoying because I get no definition in my pecs and still have extra fat up there. My waist is down to a 34 and I really have little ab fat even though on a good day only the very tops of my abs are visible. I dont understand it, I know there are no sides from anything Im taking yet this is just an issue that always bothers me, does anyone know if anything im doing now or during post cycle therapy might help this or if it will go away as I get my BF% down really low or is something like cosmetic surgery the only cure?
Thanks I really appreciate the feedback and advice.
The log will stay more updated throughout the rest of this cycle, did anyone look into moving this into the proper forum for me? I cant believe I was so dumb as to start it here and not in the Cycle one...
W/o trying to be a **** I feel I should mention that because what gains you have are lean, they aren't muscle. They are the result of an increased glucose uptake in skeletal muscle, now over the course of this time your body will synthesize this into muscle, but for now it isn't. Something to initiate this process in PCT might be something to consider (see CLA, or even better USP Labs Cialabol)
Roger that man, I know these gains arent solid muscle mass and I dont expect to keep 100% of what im putting on right now Im just merely tracking weight/strength throughout my log and Im surprised at it thus far. I really couldnt be happier with a first cycle and am glad I chose these products. Now a question which all my jealous friends keep asking or trying to knock me on is how much of the strength and muscle gains is it possible to keep from these two compounds? I plan on doing a very thorough and comprehensive PCT which I already have all the necessary products for and will post soon to get more opinions, but is it safe to bet I will keep nearly all strength gains and a good amount of the weight will turn into muscle?Originally Posted by Mulletsoldier
That's dependent on you man, and what your Post Cycle is going to entail, but also on the products. Keep in mind that Superdrol is a DHT derivetive so in some people the gains slip away, albeit slowly in some people.
spell check. caught ya for the first time. lolOriginally Posted by Mulletsoldier
i see you deadlift, but why no squats?
Ive been squatting this whole cycle, is it not in my log? Meh it should be, I did 275 5 times or so I think last legs day, Ill be hitting it again tomorrow I think so Ill let you know!Originally Posted by guyfromkop2
WOW I didnt even log any of my Legs days yet. Seriously I was feeling ****ty for awhile there and missed a few days as you can tell and some days Im so tired from one of these that I dont even want to sit in front of the computer. Anyone know if its the SD or PP which makes me so whooped, it sets in about 4-6pm every day and is hard to overcome usually.
