Day 35: First things first. Ratting on myself because for the past 5 days or so I have only been eating about 70% clean. I've been sick, I had my birthday, a wedding and then some more lethargy and down right lack of discipline as a result. This is an anomaly and I am holding myself accountable and look forward to being locked in again, probably by the end of today. Moving on, I have great news in that I have finally found a doctor I felt comfortable enough with to fully disclose my situation and who I willing to monitor my health despite disagreeing with my use of AAS. We both share an ultimate goal to eventually ween myself off exogenous testosterone so she can prescribe me with TRT. In the interim, she will monitor my health accordingly. Next, I've cut out the DBol after 5 weeks. I'm enjoying the strength gains and the size, but the estrogenic side effects hit me pretty hard some days. Now that I've got my second run with DBol under my belt, I can conclude I'm a much bigger fan of Anadrol. I do not experience the "euphoria" most people claim to have while on DBol. I actually feel pretty shitty in general. My workouts are stellar and the weights seem lighter every week, but the rest of the time I don't feel great. I also think it fucks with my appetite despite splitting my dosage and taking it with food. On Anadrol, my mind is much clearer and more focused. I also experience less water retention with Drol. The strength and aggression are much greater and I actually feel better overall. The end of the cycle will give me the chance to experiment with a new Anadrol protocol that I hope will be more effective while simultaneously causing less stress to my body. I started GHRP-6 yesterday and will run it for as long as I can. I am currently pinning 100mcg on 3 different occasions throughout the day. All with blood sugar as low as possible. (First thing in the morning, pre workout, pre final meal). I notice slight hunger increase and hope to see this improve after the DBol is out of my system. My MK-677 source has discontinued carrying the product. Other sources are nearly 50% more expensive. My honest assessment after the first 35 days is that I have not noticed any of the side effects associated with its use. It's nearly impossible for me to conclude it's working. Therefore justifying the increase in price would be pure experimentation as I sought a new source. I am beginning to lean towards adding MOD GRF 129 to the GHRP-6 in place of the MK-677. The cost would be about the same for MK-677, but the peptides would come from a source I have had great success with. Open to thoughts from anyone on this. I'm beginning to think of myself as more of a DHT kind of guy at this point. I'm looking very forward to Stanolone which I'm going to begin using very soon. Also waiting on blood work still and hope everything comes back solid.

It's interesting how compounds effect users differently. I'm referring to dbol, which many feel like batman, on the other hand, it makes you feel like crap. I'm definitely on the same page with you on DHT, i can't think of a reason not to use it, or a derivative if not for it's synergistic qualities. Looking forward to your thoughts on the MOD-GRF/GHRP combo. I've heard of using CJC/GHRP for a stronger gh pulse.

CJC 1295 No DAC is the same thing as MOD GRF 129. To be honest, I'm starting to feel like less is more. It seems like the only game when it comes to manipulating GH is Pharma grade Humatrope or Serostim for 4-8 IU a day depending on bulking or cutting. Any other method of GH manipulation is a waste for me at this point. That's where I'm at now. Results need to be measurable against their cost in order to justify it. Using peptides for GH output feels like I'm pissing in the dark hoping I hear it hit the water. I'd rather spend the money on high quality food.

Day 31: Birthday Back Training was a success. I started with 3 sets of assisted chins. Moved onto T Bar rows with a barbell (the way Ronnie did them) worked up to 7 plates for 7 reps. Moved to seated cable rows for lighter, squeezing work for 4 sets. Then DB rows. That gym goes up to 130s so I did them for a slow and controlled set of 10. Hammer seated rows. 4 plates for 12. Then it was time for what I came there for. Rack Pulls. 225 for 5. 315 for 5. Then I put 405 on and started making some noise. The first 27 reps actually felt pretty easy. They were basically fueled by aggression and excitement. This kind of set will point out your weaknesses very well. When I started the 28th rep, my glutes completely failed. The pins are set right at the knees so I was surprised to see just how much the glutes are involved. The first few inches are basically all glutes. I stopped after 28 and regrouped for a couple seconds. My hamstrings then tried to pick up the slack for my glutes and I felt it almost down into the back of my knee. I realized then that my back could handle more reps, but my lower body was basically done. The next battle I had was going to be with my lungs. Upon completion of the 29th rep, I had to make a decision to stop and regroup again or bang the pins and come right back up. Thinking that I was coming close to passing out, my legs buckling or simply dying, I decided to hit the pins and shoot back up immediately. That last rep was as ugly as they come. But I got it done and then hobbled over to the nearest bench to collect myself. I have my cousin's wedding today. I'll train tomorrow, but I'm taking a couple days off from heavy meal prepping and tracking. Still keeping up with my scheduled pins and dosages. Just giving myself a little bit of balance. I think it'll be good in the long run, at least mentally. My back is sore as all hell today so I'm satisfied with yesterday's workout.

Day 27: Now we're at 9 days without any AI and I am feeling better each day. Today was the first day I've felt great in awhile. Adapting my diet to eating less food before I train and most of it later on in the day has made a big difference. The hunger has returned. I'm definitely starving post workout. I trained for two hours today. Hit a couple more PR's on Incline DB Press and Decline Barbell. Hitting 405 on Decline Barbell has been a goal of mine for quite awhile. It's beginning to feel doable, but I stopped myself from piling on the weight. I know it's just the DBol and that my shoulder isn't ready for 405 yet. My new perspective is if I can't get it for six reps, then I can't get it. So could I maybe get 405 for one with a spot? Maybe. But I don't see how that's going to help me achieve my body composition goals. That's my focus. It's fun to be strong. It's more fun to succeed at what you set out to do. Overall, everything is growing. Everything is stronger. And I'm still as lean as I was Day 1. My conclusion on ACV's diuretic properties: absolutely amazing. You can barely tell I'm on DBol. I wake up tight every morning. The more food I eat, the tighter I am the next day. My calories are between 3700 and 4100. I've been dealing with some tightness in my quads, specifically the left quad that acts up every now and then. I usually warm up extensively on leg day before going near the squat rack. It's usually at least an hour into the workout before I squat. On Sunday, I was pressed for time and didn't get through my entire warm up. I only went up to three plates, but I knew something was off. Quads and hips were too tight. I'm hoping a couple sports massages will help. And of course, extensively warming up every time. If I can't warm up, I can't train legs. Plain and simple. One day at at a time here. Can't wait to train again! My birthday is on Friday. Gonna do something special for the big 3-0.

One thing came to mind about hip tightness. If you see a sports masseuse, ask them to check your piriformis, its a deep lateral rotator that can cause hip trouble. I know its not a quad thing, but it may help in the hip department as far as squats are concerned. Its point of insertion is at the lesser trochanter of the femur.

Sometimes self experimentation is golden. Being e2 sensitive I know the signs and symptoms of elevated or elevating e2, but didn't know the signs, symptoms, and feeling of crashing and crashed e2. I used aro on cycle to purposely crash my e2, and kept a journal on it. It may sound crazy, but my reasoning was to know for myself, and others. It paid off right here. Grizz it takes a lot longer to bounce back from aro than adex. My protocol after this experience is to use adex during cycle, and right before cycles end and into trt switch to aro. If you go too far adex is much more friendly than aro. Took me 10 days to bounce back from aro whereas adex it would only take a few days. Just food for thought. Happy to see you feeling better brother!

Day 22: After 4 days without any AI, I notice a difference. A little less lethargic, though still not as aggressive as I would like to be. Don't have the same mental clarity as I'm used to having while on cycle. I have a couple different ideas as to what's going on and the next thing I'd like to cross off my list is a blood donation. It's been about 4 months since my last donation. I'd bet my last dollar my RBC count is high. I'm also taking into consideration that the a side effect of MK-677 is lethargy. I've been on it about a month now. The last week I've been sleeping very well. A couple 9 hour nights and even one 10 hour night. If it's the MK, I'll be happier than a pig in shit. Furthermore, I'd like to add that it's been nearly a year since I was last in a caloric surplus. My body has a lot of changes to get used to. I'm going to stick with the EOD training for now. I may do 2 days in a row if I'm feeling up to it, but I'm seeing a lot of benefits to EOD training at the moment. One thing I want to adjust is my training day nutrition. I've been struggling to get 3900 clean calories in on training days. In order to do this, I've had to ensure that most of my meals have at least 75g of carbs. I like to train on 2 or 3 meals so by the time I get to the gym, I feel pretty bloated and sluggish. The fiber and the slow digesting carbs like oatmeal and yams are not optimal for me prior to training. Nor is the pre workout muffin (despite it tasting very good). I really need to train on an empty stomach. So on training days, my pre workout nutrition will be very small servings of fast digesting protein and carb sources only. Egg whites and cream of rice for breakfast followed by 1 or 2 meals of chicken and white rice (40g protein/30g carbs). I'm not crazy about whey protein. It tastes great in my oatmeal and it's convenient, but I don't know how well my body tolerates it. Ill also be using 2 Tbsp of Apple Cider Vinegar with each of the meals eaten before I train (I usually train around 12-1). The goal being to optimize digestion and get to the gym on an empty stomach. The effect this strategy has is placed on the rest of the day's nutrition. I'm probably about 500-600 calories behind what I would normally be at. However, I'm hoping that I'll actually be hungry when I leave the gym (I have not had any real hunger since initially increasing my calories at the start of this cycle). A simple way to overcome this is to increase my fat intake on training days to 100g. This more than likely means I'll be enjoying a homemade cheeseburger made with 90/10 beef on some sort of multigrain bread with baked sweet potato fries as my last meal on training days. It could also mean a slice of pizza on leg days won't be out of bounds. I had a cheat meal last night after falling a bit behind in my calories and woke up tight and vascular with the muscles really pushing at the skin. Some extra sodium once or twice a week can be very beneficial. I will use the Dandelion Root and the Apple Cider Vinegar on training days to mitigate the extra sodium and the water retention that makes training and eating difficult. On rest days, I will allow my digestion to slow down a bit by avoiding diuretics, eating more fiber and allowing the cells to volumize via water retention. I don't want to use ACV on rest days because I want to promote an alkaline environment. Also will increase antioxidants on rest days. Despite feeling like I'm constantly searching for ways to improve this cycle, I'm off to a great start. About 242-243 now. Definitely the most muscular I've ever been. By far the most vascular. Strength is steadily improving (Incline DB Press: 125s X 13 reps). And my quads are really starting to noticeably improve. Abdominals still somewhat visible in the morning.

A quick little correction...ACV is actually promotes alkalinity. An added benefit of ACV is its liver cleansing properties. I'm wondering whether it may be a good idea to start the GHRP6 a bit earlier than you planned. I believe (and i stress 'believe') that GHRP helped with tren-based appetite suppression when i was running it last cycle. Just a thought because of your issue with consuming enough cals. That cheese burger sounds damn good :)

This is something I'm struggling to wrap my head around. ACV is acidic yet promotes alkalinity? Unless I'm just wrong about it. I thought it benefited the stomach acids and thus was acidic in itself. If you can clarify this for me, Blast, I'd appreciate it.

The interesting thing about many acidic foods is that once metabolized by the liver, they become alkaline. I know it's counter intuitive and i had to bite the bullet and trust the science. I wish i knew more about and understood metabolic pathways, but that stuff is quite complicated. An analogy that may help is cayenne pepper, while hot to the tongue actual promotes cooling of the body. In India, if you don't eat that spicy food, you will likely end up with heat rash, or other problems associated with high body temperature. Hope that helps clarify how while a given substance has an initial property, once metabolized has the opposite.

Yes thank you. I can grasp the logic of it now. It's not just about what you do to your body, but it's really about how your body responds to it. The effect of something is only understood in its totality after taking into account the body's reaction to it. Compensatory effect. Now that I know this, I'll be using ACV a lot more. I have to find the upper limit of using it. There are times when you don't want to be alkaline, like during your workout. Finding the right balance is crucial.

Speaking of Grandmother's wisdom, mine made homemade sauerkraut. Good stuff with added kick of beneficial microorganisms. Finely chop a head of cabbage, place in a non-metallic bowl, put a plate snugly on top and place a heavy object on the plate to more or less seal it. Place bowl in a warm location for about a week. Should be good to go. You can squeeze the juice from the cabbage to make kraut juice. Delicious!

I use apple cider vinegar myself but I have never used it for another purpose than to support a healthy PH balance. I am using it at a much smaller single serving dose than you are Griz. I have not spent a lot of time studying up on it. I took the lead from my grandmother. Grandma is NEVER wrong. ;)

Day 18: I've decided to adjust my training cycle to train less frequently. When I try to train 2 consecutive days, the second day has been less than optimal. I just can't get through the whole workout with the kind of intensity I had the day before. I even managed to get 10 hours of sleep last night, but after I got through the first two exercises today, my mind started to drift and I lost the connection with my body. Then I couldn't contract the muscle group and then I lost my strength and my drive. So it's not a big deal. The extra rest is exactly what I need to grow more. Kill it, recover, repeat.

Grizz do you possibly think you could have e2 on the low side from your ai? With what you are running right now (test/dbol) kicking in you should be feeling it everyday in the gym. Hell on scheduled rest days you should be chomping at the bits because you're not in the gym! What I read above is some symptoms of low/crashing e2.

My blend is equal parts E and C. But I've also been pinning 50mg ED of prop for the first 2 weeks. This is also my first time Kickstarting with DBol. I think where I went wrong was justifying a need for Aro right off the bat. I assumed with the DBol and the Prop that I would need an AI. But I realized that I've been taking an AI without even the slightest hint of an e2 issue. So I'm discontinuing my AI for a bit to see if I rebound from the lethargy. I'll actually wait until I see a need for it. My Aro is from APL.

The blood work is a great idea. Dolf's suspicions shows the experience that a member can bring to the table to help others.

Day 16: The drugs don't create the physique. They create a better environment for it in terms of a positive nitrogen balance, but outside of that the real mechanism at work is giving you the ability to work harder. That's what's happening with me right now. I need a day off after most training days. There's no incessant need to get to the gym everyday right now. I know that I'm growing on my days off. Despite the scale not moving much, I'm seeing changes in my body - which is all that matters. I"m especially proud of my ability to control my water. I got a watch repaired that took 5 months to get back. I was 15 pounds lighter the last time I had it on and I certainly wasn't on DBol. I had to have it taken in before I left the store. I think you need some water retention in order to volumize the muscle cell and support growth. But there's no reason to ever have a moon face. Intracellular water is necessary. Subcutaneous water isn't. The real way to control it, that I'm finding now, is the potassium:sodium ratio. It's easy to not get enough potassium. And eating a banana in the gym locker room is not how you add potassium to your diet. Contrary to popular belief, bananas aren't a great source of potassium. Anyway, I see better overall shape in my arms, shoulders and chest. Back is filling out. Quads are getting bigger. Yesterday, I joined the 1,000 pound leg press club. Got 900 for 12 reps and threw another 100 pounds on for 8 reps. Then I did lunges in the Smith Machine for the first time ever which I really liked. Really engorged the quads with blood. Then I went and did a couple sets of squats with 225. I could barely stand up so going any heavier would have just been dangerous. But it felt good to push that hard. I also did hamstrings, glutes and leg extensions before getting under the leg press. I planned to do shoulders today, but my nervous system was fried and even though I slept almost 8 hours last night, I needed a two hour nap in the afternoon today. As far as the drugs go, I'm going to add Stanolone to this cycle. I see some room for it and I'll make the adjustments in the log. I want to try it. So I'm going to. The diet dictates the results of a cycle much more than the compounds do. I can find a place for increasing my aggression, strength, libido and muscle hardness while lowering SHBG. It's not hard to justify. The only think I don't want to do is run it with Anadrol as they are both DHT compounds. Basically, it'll be used as a bridge between DBol and Anadrol. I'm only trying to get to 255 this cycle. Could I make my goal 265 and probably hit it? I know for a fact I can add 25 pounds in a cycle, but I'm looking to add 15 pounds of solid muscle and keep every fucking ounce of it. 15 pounds heavier and leaner. If I can do that twice a year it won't take long to reach my overall goals.

I take potassium capsules daily along with magnesium. What do you take for potassium? Sounds like you're on a streak. Good work brother! (I'm looking forward to running stanolone in about 8 weeks, gonna be interesting to hear your take on it)

How much potassium is in your capsules? My potassium comes from a banana with breakfast, 8oz of yams with meal 2 and the Apple Cider Vinegar is loaded with postassium. That's probably why it's such a good diuretic because it will balance your ratio real quick causing your body let go of the water weight.

White potatoes are loaded with potassium. Blast should be good in that area until that bag is gone at least lol. I'm with you grizz...I'd rather get mine from whole foods as much as I can.

White potatoes are the number 1 potassium bearing food that I'm aware of. I forgot he bought that sack of potatoes! Blast, get yourself a spiralizer and make baked curly fries with just a little sea salt and some olive oil. I do it with my yams and get them all crispy. Life changing.

I cut the sweet potatoes like traditional fries, toss in olive oil, season with sea salt, onion powder, garlic powder, a bit of chili powder, and bake. They are fucking delicious!

Day 14: Woke up at 239.9 today. That's .7 pound increase. I think it's a perfect pace. I'm drier and tighter than Day 1. Muscles are full. I have 5 months to gain 15 pounds. The idea is to build lean tissue and lean tissue only. I strongly believe that this bulk will be so lean that my bodyfat percentage will decrease during the 5 months. I have my calories at 3675 on training days. That's 320g of protein, 475g of carbs and 55g of fats. I'm really starting to see how unnecessary it is for me to take in as much fat as I'm used to with the amount of body fat I currently have. I have a serving of natural PB at night and the rest of my fat comes from MCT oil. 4000mg of Omega 3 fish oil daily ensures my body is primed to burn fat even while bulking. Something new I started doing the last 2 days is supplementing with Apple Cider Vinegar. I have 1 tbsp with breakfast, 2 tbsp with my preworkout meal and 1 tbsp with my last meal of the day. My primary use for it is to improve digestion and help improve insulin sensitivity in an attempt to drive the carbs into the muscles. The immediate effects I've noticed include a diuretic response leaving me drier, tighter and much more vascular. My vascularity is at an all time high now actually. I attribute some of that to the DBol which really hit me hard for the first time yesterday. While on the treadmill warming up, I got a calf pump as well as a pump in my abs. One of my favorite effects of using gear is having an abdominal pump while training something like chest. I trained arms yesterday and had an awesome forearm flexor pump. Strength and aggression came on strong. Hit a PR on Incline Skullcrushers with 135 for 14 reps. I thought about putting quarters on and going for 165, but those are the unnecessary ego sets one must avoid while on DBol. I'm going to extend the DBol to 6 weeks. I'll make the change in the log. Basically, my focus is on digesting my food as efficiently as possible and absorbing all of the nutrients. I think we're off to a great start and all the little things I'm doing like the ACV are going to combine to make a huge difference in the end result.
