Just turned 30 this year n after a couple years of no consistent gym time, I wasn't much too happy with what I was seeing in the mirror. I love being in the gym, the way it makes me feel mentally and physically and of course the aesthetic aspect of it all.
So since the start of March I've been back the gym, trying to regain muscle mass n eat away at this fat I've accumulated. Started around 222lbs n had a 38" waist, man boobs n arms shrunk down to around 15-16"... busted my hump the last few months, mostly floating around the same weight the entire time but gradually shrinking the waist, transforming fatty man boobs back into muscular pecs and regaining considerable amounts strength.
I've been on cycle, blasting with methyls w/ a trest base n then cruising on trest alone in between since mid March, most recently ran dianadrol while waiting on the release of M1TO, which can be found here, n made some great progress in regaining strength and recomped like crazy.
Since wrapping up Dianadrol a week and a half ago I've maintained all my strength, lost a few more pounds n belt slid down another notch which leads me to my current stats...
Age- 30 y.o.
Some cold starting shots...
WHAT THE GHEY?^^^^^^ it was just this next image?
Still working at getting the chub down, more than anything the lower back fat and oblique padding, but def regaining muscle mass back again... just gotta watch how eager I get with higher lift numbers so I don't injure myself n put myself outta commission again.... with "transformation"/comebacks in the past, it's always done at a slight deficit with heavy emphasis on protein n complex carbs, muscle mass comes back first then the fat slowly melts away with all the new/regained muscle to feed....
As mentioned, most days are at a slight deficit. Some days a slight surplus if I need it for recovery or planning an intense session(even though I try to push every session with the iron)
Just recently laid out my basic diet in the last log, so I'll quote it here
Diet isn't super rigid. It's outlined, "usually portion controlled" and picked from healthy total p:c:f macro meals I've numbered/measured out the past. Also dependant on my activity levels and recovery needs and work load It can go up or down.
My wife does most the cooking so it can vary a lot depending on what she's the mood for, but I'll lay out a normal day for me...
6oz Greek yogurt +1/2 cup granola OR 1/2 cup grapenuts
Lean ham or tuna on whole wheat bread +12oz 2% milk
(Occasionally 2 pb&j on wheat when I'm a fatty)
Post workout(this can happen before lunch, after lunch and after dinner, depends)
16oz 2% milk+1.5 servings protein powder(30g pro 9g carb)
1 Chicken breast +1/2-1 potato+12oz 2% milk
Once a week I have either a larger lunch or larger breakfast, for my work I attend chamber of commerce functions. This is one meal of the week, I ALWAYS get to pick my food from the catering options n it's always a solid protein source, complex or starchy carbs and water I don't get dessert on the lunches and keep bacon/sausage to a min n stick to mostly the eggs for breakfast.
I also eat out with the wife about every other week and again I try to get something that's mostly protein n complex carbs... like a double meat chipotle burrito with brown rice n black beans. Occasionally that's fried chicken or pizza but that's maybe been 3 times in 3 months that I've ate those.
I take a slin sane(og formula) 3xed before each larger meal to help with my love for carbs.
Again this is rough but doesn't really vary much each day.
Currently I working out 5 days a week. Ideally that is run m-f on, s+s off. Sometimes something happens mid week n it winds up being m+t on, w off, f+sa on, sun off.
I run in this order always, to allow optimal recovery between similar groups/movements.
I could list all current lifts and numbers now, but the op is already getting lengthy n I post all lifts and all numbers each day, so they can be seen at that time or in my last log.
As can be seen above, I have multiple bottles of salvo... in each I have prepared ~5g of 4-Androstenediol giving me ~170mg/ml. I made my first couple@ 200mg/ml but it kept crashing each night this last week n had to be warmed in a cup in the sink to apply it each morning... at the current concentration, it's clear as when I got it, no crystals and no need to warm it each application...it also dries faster now.
This "base" will give me the opportunity to run M1T Oxime in the exact same manner I ran a majority of my M1T cycles.... with the added benefit from salvo of not having to absolutely bathe in crappy td carrier.
I plan on starting M1T Oxime low, 10mg, and moving up from there after the first 2 weeks. If the compound is as strong as the target compound, it will be made most apparent through this dose. After the initial 2 weeks the dose will be increased/decreased 5mg as needed. So the outline will look something like this, planning 4-6 weeks...
4-AD was started last week so still have a 2 week preload n should be mostly flowing up to full blood concentrations by the time M1TO is started... at least that was the old method used.
A few of the supports/staples/extras taken are following:
LGI Damage Control(started a couple days ago/Friday)
USPL Modern bcaa intra(has electrolyte blend n taurine)
Bulk Creapure (5g intra/post-workout)
Arom-x ATD 3ml/night(75mg capped equiv. supposedly)
800mg Bulk 1-Carboxy nightly
OG SlinSane 3 caps ed with meals
50mcg T3 ed
2g fish oil daily
Lots of water
I think that about covers all my bases, if you guys have questions or want more info LMK, I'll answer where I can...
Thanks to BA and Celtic Labs for the opportunity try such a promising new compound, but given it's based on the compound I used to run my first 4 cycles oroso and ran about 7-10 times total, it's got some big boots to fill n I'm going to be brutally honest about my results.
Dosing starts Wednesday! Logging starts tomorrow!
