  • Good log Elf. Made for great weekend reading. Took me back to my first run. You've inspired a couple additions to my own log. Keep up the hard work. Take care of that back issue. You don't want to make it worse through sheer forgetfulness and wind up with major issues when you're 26-27. Keep it up.

      Thank you very much, Mr. Wolf. I try to be as careful with my Back as possible now. Even when I'm at home doing nothing I am paying attention to posture, which I never used to do. It probably wasn't smart of me to have Deadlifted a few days back, but I suppose I had to get it out of my system. Everything is feeling awesome and I hope I can keep it that way.

      • Back & Chest: 4/8/2014

        I typically do not do Chest and Back together - in fact, I don't think I ever have before today. I had an extra day to throw in whatever bodypart I wanted to, so I decided to do this. It was an awesome workout.

        Deadlift:
        135lbs x Warmup
        225lbs x 10
        315lbs x 5
        385lbs x 5
        315lbs x 10

        Incline BB Chest Press:
        135lbs x Warmup
        185lbs x 12
        205lbs x 10
        225lbs x 8
        *Drop Set* 135lbs x Burnout

        Single Arm Seated Row:
        3 sets + 1 Drop Set

        Cable Cross-Overs:
        3 sets + 3 Drop Sets

        Assisted Pull-Ups Supersetted w/ Side Cable Lat Pull-Downs:
        4 sets of each x 8-12

        Flat Chest Cable Flies Supersetted w/ Machine Decline Chest Press:
        4 sets of each x 8-15

        And that was it. After which I stretched out for about 10-15 minutes and foam rolled a bunch. I drank a 40g Protein Shake w/ 30g Carbs (Oats) afterwards. Well, I almost drank it. I spilled 1/4 of it all over myself in the car. Good workout, though.

        I'll be taking the next two days off for sure.


        I am going to discontinue posting in this thread from now on. I am no longer "Enhanced", so I feel weird posting in here. I am posting in the IronMagLabs Sponsor sub-forum here: http://forums.musculardevelopment.co...46#post3642146

        When I start up my next cycle I'll be back here!

              I just got blood workout done. It looks A-Okay. My HDL Cholesterol level was 50mg/dl which is a bit low... other than that I was in very normal ranges all across the board. My estrodiol was 25, which seemed high to me, but not too big of an issue and my Testosterone was 400ng/dl, which is a little lower than usual. I'm usually in the 500's, but it's not the lowest it has ever been, so no worries. All in all, I'm basically exactly where I was before my cycle in terms of blood work. My blood pressure is still around 130/75. I seem to stay around there. I'm giving blood in a few days, so hopefully that helps. At any rate, that's the last update of this cycle.

                  A lot of people told me I was going to lose a lot of my strength after the cycle, but I haven't. Basically, I can do the same amount of weight for everything, but just less reps than when I was on cycle.

                      same here, the weights have increased a bit, instead!

                      ...altohugh it must be taken into account that i started taking creatine, which i wasn't taking while on...

                      • Creatine for me is useless all it does is make my stomach upset have we have terrible gas. Doesn't matter what brand or what type nine of them have ever done anything for me other than make me Surprise myself.

                              • This is me right now after three meals. About 216lbs in this picture. In this next blast I'm going to really focus on my muscular imbalances, like my pecs and lats. My symmetry is off quite a bit in my opinion, and I hate it.
