Getting ready to pin for the first time on Sunday. This is my very first venture into AAS. I will be running a combo of Test-E/Clen/A-dex. All GP products from Naps. I am looking for a re-comp/cut. I expect to have extraordinary results after finding out this week that I have very low Test and high Estradiol. My PCT will commence 14 days after last shot and will be Clomid/Nolva/A-dex. I will only update this log on Sunday's unless there is a major change/discovery in the middle of the week. Here are my basic stats....I will post actual stats each Sunday.

Age- 34
Height- 6'
Weight- 235-237lbs(fluctuates with water)
Body-fat- 15% give or take a few tenths

Weeks 1-10= Test-E @ 250mg twice weekly
Weeks 1-10= A-dex @ .25mg everyday
Weeks 1-2, 5-6, 9-10= Clen @ 20mcgs ramped up to tolerable level

PCT
Weeks 13-16= Clomid @ 100/50/25/25
Weeks 13-16= Nolvadex @ 40/30/20/10
Weeks 13-16= A-dex @ .25 everyday
Weeks 13-14= Clen @ 20mcgs ramped up to tolerable level

Huh looking at the same cycle myself, although there seems to be a little overkill with the PCTm just my opinion.

Looking forward to seeing how your log goes, good luck and have fun!

I agree that pct looks like overkill. Too much Serms. I would suggest to low dose both or pick one.

I don't like the idea of taking adex in weeks 13-16. you will already have low E due to having low T. Adex will basically crush your E at that point. Plus Nolva has some anti-e properties and also stops it from binding to receptors.

I had bloodwork done this week and found that I already have low T and high E.....the doc is putting me on TRT, that is the reason I was going to hit the PCT hard. If it's too much though, I'll just run the Nolvadex so I don't have to take my wife's clomid :)

Hey Coach - From your stats, I am having a little trouble "buying" the 15.08% BF. Sure it is right? You didn't get it checked by electrical impedance, did you?

coach5
05-16-2011, 08:43 PM
Nope...was measured at the gym yesterday morning.....I left the sheet in my locker....I'll post the pinches tomorrow when I get back from the gym.

OK...my stuff is definitely legit....think I have a case of test flu.....2nd shot was earlier on Wednesday

iPenetratah
05-19-2011, 03:35 PM
Test flu? What brand are you taking? I've never experienced test flu, and from what I have heard from others, ones that suffer from test flu, is usually due to junk gear. I am interested to what others have to say about it...

Also, make sure you have some Ketotifen for your clen.

coach5
05-20-2011, 03:20 AM
I'm using GP.... I felt much better this morning....and it's also not a sign of bunk gear...it's a sign of your body trying to restore homeostasis from the excessive hormones. No need either for the ketotifen since I'm running the clen 10 on and 10 off.

Here is this weeks update...

Weight= 241.4
LBM= 201.0
BF%= 14.58%
Waist= 36
Naval= 36.75
Hips= 43
Neck= 16.5
Chest= 46.25
Biceps= 15
Forearms= 13.5
Thighs= 25.5
Calves= 17.75

Before any of you start flaming me about my gains, let it be known that I am aware that Test-E will not illicit any gains for the first 3-4 weeks. I know that the increase in weight, LBM, and size is from the addition of creatine to my diet and the upped protein intake. I am taking 10g daily of creatine. Some of the weight I gained is also probably from me being constipated for the last 3-4 days.(Took laxatives this morning) I have noticed a lot more definition in my abs this week up until around Friday when my bowels decided to stop working. I will also add that my skin seems to be tighter and I'm more vascular too. I finally started noticing some effects of the clen this morning when I raised the dose to 140mcg. Tomorrow is my 10th day on the clen, but I may extend it out to 14 days since I'm just now reaching my target dose it seems. I will update again next Sunday.

viper826@aol.com

If you've never done AAS before then all I would recommend is Test-E for 10 weeks @ 500mg/wk split into 2 doses. Take aromasin or arimidex while on cycle and clomid and nolva for your pct. As far as bulking or shredding...it's all about what you eat and how much you eat.

OK...Quick update that I thought was important...

GP Test-E is G2G... Today is day 11 and I noticed last night that I'm starting to slightly break out on my face, neck, upper chest, shoulders, and back. Skin also feels a bit oily. I have never had a problem with acne before in my life, so I know this is directly attributed to the test-e. I guess it is time to start bathing in epsom salts frequently to help dry the skin out.

iPenetratah
05-24-2011, 11:59 PM
My first cycle I did not break out until PCT....but my latest run, I am breaking out.

I am running all GP products as well.

Just a quick update before I measure on Sunday.....

Day 21

Strength is starting in increase and so is endurance. My last set on decline bench today was 2x405. I'm actually sore in my chest for once after a workout too....my pecs feel like they've been in a battle of tug-o-war. Acne has increased around my hairline and on the back of my neck....trying to combat with epsom salt baths every night. I have put on weight since beginning my cycle, but have leaned at the same time. I can see my top two abs somewhat clearly and the ones right below them are starting to show too. I'm staying pretty bloated from the amount of water I am drinking....around 2 gallons per day. I'm going to guess that my BF% is somewhere around 13.5% and my weight should be around 245-247. I am starting a 3 day cleanse as of tomorrow morning so I will be completely leaned out when I hit the beach in Hawaii. My next update should be this Sunday.

F.I.S.T.

Here are the updated stats as of this morning Day 23...

So far I have gained 8lbs exactly....and 11.9lbs of LBM. I've lost .75" from my waist and my naval. I've gained an inch on my chest and forearms. I've gained .75" on my biceps and calves. I've also put 2.5" on my thighs. Progress is rearing it's head slowly on the scale and measuring tape, but daily in the mirror. I'm hoping that the results stay at this pace for the remaining 2/3's of my cycle as I am officially 1/3 finished.

Weight= 244.2
LBM= 206.4
BF%= 13.89
Waist= 35.75
Naval= 36.25
Hips= 43.5
Neck= 17
Chest= 47
Biceps= 15.25
Forearms= 14
Thighs= 27
Calves= 18

Day 37...Halfway point

So I have officially reached the halfway point of my cycle...the results so far are pretty staggering, but I expected them to be since this is my first run with AAS. I am up about 13lbs total and about 17lbs of lean body mass. The a-dex and clen have completely kept the bloat away. I have no water retention and no sign of moon face either. For the second half of my cycle I will be keeping a very close eye on my diet and also will be upping my cardio considerably. I have dropped a little over 2% bodyfat while on and if I drop another 2% that will put me just above my goal of reaching 10% bodyfat. I know if I clean my diet up completely and up my cardio I can easily reach 10% or lower. My vacation didn't have much of a negative effect on my cycle either....I guess all of the walking and swimming help with my poor diet. I was able to get in all of my workouts except legs.....unfortunately the hotel didn't have anything for me to use for a leg workout, unless I did a bunch of lunges with 50lb dumbbells. I am really starting to look forward to my second cycle this winter which will be comprised of Test-E, Equipoise, and either Anavar or Winstrol. Here are my current stats:


Weight= 249.4
LBM= 211.4
BF%= 13.84
Waist= 36
Naval= 36.25
Hips= 43
Neck= 17.25
Chest= 48.25
Biceps= 15.5
Forearms= 14
Thighs= 27.5
Calves= 18.25

Sorry I haven't updated in a long time....things have been way out of whack the last few weeks with my dad getting diagnosed with lung cancer. I will try to update everything tomorrow morning though.

coach5
07-17-2011, 02:20 PM
Day 65......Only 1 pin left after this morning

Here is what's been going on the last 3 weeks.....

Somehow I severely hurt my shoulder/forearm/wrist on my left arm. I have only lifted 4 times in the past 3 weeks and only twice in the past 2 weeks. The much needed time off has helped my injuries tremendously and I plan on hitting it full bore starting tomorrow. I also found out that my dad has lung cancer and he had one of his lungs removed earlier this week. We've been on the go so much the last 2-3 weeks that I've blown my diet to complete crap too. The only noticeable effects of not working out and eating bad is really in my chest and the tape measure shows it too. Size is the same in all areas and definition is too as it was 3 weeks ago.

Here are my current stats as of this morning.....(a little bloated too)

Weight= 250.2 (+3.8)
LBM= 213.2 (+3.0)
BF%= 12.95 (-.32)
Waist= 35.5
Naval= 36.25 (+.25)
Hips= 43
Neck= 17.25
Chest= 48 (-1.0)
Biceps= 16.0
Forearms= 14
Thighs= 28 (+.5)
Calves= 18 (-.25)

I've noticed the past few days that when I'm not bloated that my stomach is about the same size as my waist. I may try to remeasure it and my waist in the morning tomorrow if I'm not as bloated and edit my stats.

coach5
07-26-2011, 03:39 AM
I am 9 days post last pin and HOLY CRAP side effects!!!!

Exponential hair growth on back, shoulders and chest!!!

Acne on back, shoulders, chest, neck, forehead and ass!!!

I guess my body is starting to try and restart the HPTA and my hormones are all out of whack.... I am still taking .5mg of adex everyday, 3g of vitamin c everyday, and 10g of creatine everyday. This Sunday I will drop the adex and start taking clomid, nolva, and clen along with the vitamin c and creatine. I will take measurements this Sunday too since it will be day 1 of PCT.

21 Days After Last Pin Summary:


Start End Current

Wt- 236.2 250.2 244.2

LBM- 194.5 213.2 210.3

BF%- 15.96 12.95 12.61

Waist- 36.5 35.5 35

Navel- 37 36.25 35.5

Neck- 16.5 17.25 17.25

Chest- 46 48 47.5

Bicep- 14.5 16 15.5

Fore- 12.5 14 13.5

Thigh- 24.5 28 27.5

Calf- 17.25 18 18


As you can see, I had a very successful Test-E run and so far I am keeping the majority of my gains. I put on almost 20lbs of LBM and I've only lost 3lbs of it so far. I expect to lose another 4-5lbs of it, which would put me at around a 12-13lb gain at the end. My strength has gone down a little, but not much. I will continue with my diet until I start my next cycle in November or December. Hopefully I will be down to 11%-10% body-fat by then so the Var I want to run will have good results. I will update this log 2 more times.....at the end of my PCT and 1 month following the end of PCT with updated blood results then too. I will definitly be using GP products and Naps in the future.

Thanks guys.....can't wait to run my next cycle. I'm still having trouble deciding what to run though....I'm still thinking Test/EQ, but also throwing in some Var and Proviron. I'm wanting to get lean and hard before next spring break, but not ready to jump into Mast or Tren. My next run will be 16 weeks and will start in November.

Give me your suggestions...

Ok people....here are the end results of my completed cycle after PCT:

Day 1 Day 1 Current
PCT

Wt- 236.2 250.2 238.2

LBM- 194.5 213.2 205.1

BF%- 15.96 12.95 13.14

Waist- 36.5 35.5 35.0

Navel- 37 36.25 35.0

Neck- 16.5 17.25 17.0

Chest- 46 48 47.5

Bicep- 14.5 16 15

Fore- 12.5 14 13.5

Thigh- 24.5 28 27.5

Calf- 17.25 18 17.75


Overall I am satisfied with my results. I was able to accomplish my goals too...I lost bodyfat while increasing lean body mass. As you can see from the numbers, I'm still holding on to about 10lbs of gained LBM and I dropped about 3% bodyfat too. Due to continuing problems with my left shoulder/left bicep/left forearm/left wrist, I have taken the past 3 weeks off and I believe that has affected some of my measurements as well. I plan to hit the gym again starting next Monday...real light with high reps, just to see how my left arm feels. I will more than likely do a whole body workout 3-4 times next week just to get back into the swing of it and then start back on my routine after that.

Are my results typical, above average, or below average for a 10wk run of Test-E??

too bad u lost alot on ur bicep everything else is nice tho good job

I think the loss on my biceps was due to the injury to my left arm...Which is still giving me problems after almost a month away from the gym. I think I'm gonna go get it looked at next week if it doesn't improve by this weekend.
