  1. Very nice log thus far bro. Thanks for the invite. Just like Royd, I too wish I had a training partner. There's so many good things to come from it. More ambition, aggression, being competitive, make the gym a lil more fun, etc. I'm currently doing DC training, so I would really rather have a partner than have to do most exercises on the goddamn smythe machine, lol. Good luck on the cycle bro, and i'm VERY interested to see if the M-TST really acts like a test PH. Let's see if it keeps lethargy, bad libido, etc, at bay Get your swoll on son!! :bb3:

    Good to see you here bro and yes having a training partner has been working out great. I've finally found someone who has the same goals and drive as far as bodybuilding is concerned. DC looks like it could be very promising. Dante definitely knows his stuff and I'll probably give DC a try one day. DC would definitely be a little challenging without a workout partner. Just make sure you stay safe bro.

    Like you said, hopefully the M-TST will help contradict some of the sides of the SD, especially the lethargy, as that's one of the main reasons I decided to run it alongside the SD. Hopefully it will take care of any libido problems as well, but as of now that's not really a concern for me

  3. SUBBED!! Thanks for the invite homie!! Log looks absolutely great. Very well organized. Very much different than mine are!! lol I'm excited about your cycle here bro. Started this morning, right? Oh fukk yeah!! It's going to be fun for sure. You'll like the addition of the Methoxy TST on this thing. It really does act like a Test base for your other orals. It will combat the lethargy of Super-Drol. I have a great mood the whole time I use TST. It did for sure help maintain libido for me even on this last run which had TRN in it. And TRN is notorious for libido killing. Mine was awesome the whole cycle through. And now a week into PCT, I'm a raging horn-dawg!! How are planning on dosing the TST? Just curious. I could give you some pointers. I've used it like 4 times now. Love it!! Cheap but effective. Tripdog turned me on to the whole TST experience! Rock dis beeyatch TT!!

  4. Ok guys. The cycle has officially begun. I took my first SD this morning and I'm already up 5 pounds! Well, not really, but I wish it worked that fast haha. But yes it has begun and I will continue to keep you updated. The Methoxy-TST will be taken later today closer to my workout so I can enjoy the full benefits of it's anabolic effects. Today's workout will be chest and possibly bi's or tri's depending on what I decide.

    You can ask Tripdog or Trauma1 on this, but you should take at least 3 caps of the TST 2 hours before your workout for the androgenic rage it will provide for your training. I usually take 5 or 6 myself. Trip says he takes 6 caps as well. You have to take it at least 2 hours before though. Trauma waits for 3 hours. It kicks in slowly. But then it hits fukkin' hard!!

    I was planning on taking 12 mg (6 pills) about 2 or 3 hours before my workout just like you mentioned, so all is good on that front. I've seen enough of your logs to realize thats the sweet spot

    Post Workout Thoughts

    Sucked! Well I've had worst, but it definitely wasn't the workout I was expecting or that I desired, but I guess it was just one of those days. Bench was lower today and simply put the weights just felt extremely HEAVY. Incline went a little better, but still not great. Mixed it up a little bit with the close grips and I've never actually done them on a smith so I can't compare those numbers, but the rest of my my numbers were all down today. It's probably safe to assume that my weekend of bad dieting and a day in which I spent 14 straight hours on a boat with the sun beating down on me probably didn't help. Oh well, soon the SD will have kicked in and I'll be destroying the weights.


    Weight upon waking: 195.5 lbs (down a little, most likely due to my weekend)

    That's the spirit!!

  11. Just a little update as I'm bored here at work. Weight was back up this morning to 197. Nothing to do with the SD, just by body bouncing back from the weekend. My body should be back in full swing today, so I'm ready to destroy some deadlifts.

    Question for bassgod, thundergod, and anyone else who has used M-TST, how long did it take before you started feeling the effects of M-TST?

  12. Takes about 2hrs for the TST to kick in. TripDog says 2hrs for him, Trauma1 says he takes it 3hrs pre-wo. I take it 2hrs pre-wo myself. The effects are noticed the very first time you use it. You won't notice anything until you begin to lift though. Then you'll be like "I am going to throw this ****ING DB through THAT WALL!!!" lol, but seriously, that is how you will feel. I LOVE THE SHYT!!! STrength will increase, as well as aggression, vascularity, and insane pumps. :bb3:

  13. Can't wait to see those Dead lift numbers.

    Post workout thoughts:


    Pretty good workout today. I definitely think I was feeling some of the effects of the M-TST because I was in a whole other world in the time leading up to the gym. I couldn't wait to get into the gym and pull deads. That being said though, I was kind of disappointed with my reps on my 405 and 425 sets. Maybe the jump from 315 to 405 was too much. Anyways, the rest of the workout went very well. Tomorrow will more than likely be an off day as I have some moving to do, but Thursday I will be in the gym full force for a brutal shoulder workout. If I have time though I'll probably try to sneak in a workout.


    Weight upon waking: 197 lbs

  15. Damn man I'm subbed!I meant to get here sooner,but forgot all about it.I didn't have the time when I recieved your PM.

    No problem man! Glad to have you here!

  17. My nips seem to be a little sensitive, or at least my right one, which I've had problems with before. It could be simply be me being overly cautious though as I've known myself to do so. But just to be fast, as soon as I get back from work I'm going to start taking my P-5-P as I'm sure if there really is anything going on it's progesterone or prolactin related. I may also run a low dose of Nolva too throughout the rest of the cycle just to be safe. Any thoughts?

    Sensitive is fine, painful is when you need to take action. If ANYTHING, just use the p-5-p. Do NOT start nolva. There is NO need since SD is an AI. It is prolactin related if indeed there is anything wrong. I would honestly wait and see what happens tomorrow, but they're your nips, so do what you will.

    Yep no pain, just some sensitivity or possible over-analysis on my part. Either way I'm going to start taking the P-5-P today and then see what happens from there.

    Those are great numbers and for someone who only weighs 197lbs. That's almost ver batum, where I was last summer and in my circle of friends I have the strongest dead lift. Great job! Your relative dead lift strength is uncommonly high.

    Edit: Before I injured myself (on rows!), I pulled 495lbs x 2, I think you'll be right there soon enough. My dead lift strength was oddly disproportionate to everything else. My workout partner, with a clearly stronger back on everything else couldn't pull 405lbs more then 2 or 3 times, but 405 was cake for me. I think you have that odd dead lift strength too.

    Thanks for the kind words Volcom! 495 x 2 is an awesome deadlift all in itself. Let that back fully heal and you'll be back moving huge poundages of the floor in no time.

    I'll definitely have to say that I love deadlifts. I've really only been doing them hard for a couple months now and it's quickly become my favorite exercise. Who doesn't love moving a lot of weight around? Me and the deadlift get along very well as ever since I added them my numbers have just continued to climb. I've always had extremely strong ham's and glutes so I'm sure that's a big part of it. Deadlifts are the only lift where I can actually outlift my workout partner. Like you said in your case, the guy I workout with is stronger on all other back exercises, but for some reason I have him beat on deads.

    I've never really thought of myself being that good at them though because the only people I've ever had to compare myself to were the powerlifters at my gym back home. You have to realize we have a very serious powerlifting group there, so there is several guys pulling in the 700 and 800 range. There was a cool video I found online one time of one of the guys at my gym doing 600 x 8 like it was a warmup set. It was cool because you could see me off in the background with my jaw hanging.

    Anyways, I hope to see 5 plates myself before too long

    Dont even bother with b6/p-5-p imo. Just get caber if you think its prolactin related. Your running SD only correct?

    I almost feel as though SD gives me a diuretic type effect that first 8 or so days. Dry and hard.

  23. I'd agree you have good DL #'s. I love them as well however I have a tendency to be lazy with keeping my hips loose and stretched and overtime I have to lay off the deads as my hips start to get WAY to tight. Stretching is the one thing I hate most....

    No I'm running SD and Methoxy-TST. The problem is that no one actually knows whats in M-TST, but everyone agrees that it's highly androgenic, so I guess it is possible that's causing the problems.

    Never ran caber and don't have any on hand. I've taken some P-5-P and I'll reevaluate the situation.

    Thanks man. I'll have to make sure I continue to stretch so I don't run into your problem.
