If youve followed on some other topics over the past couple weeks you may have run across me talking about starting my first cycle. Well time to put my money where my mouth is! Order should be arriving in a few days so I’ll plan on starting the cycle next Sunday. In the mean time figured Id start logging my training and sharing some other stuff.
Get as strong/powerful as possible! I dont have super specific numbers in mind I just want to push a lot of my main lifts up as high as I can. Though I suppose if I had to get specific I’d like to do the following by the end of June…
Bench --> 300 or more lbs (last time I tested I got 270lbs November 2019)
Squat --> 450 more lbs (~2 years ago I got 415lbs)
Deadlift --> 530+ (~2 years ago I got 440lbs, but recent in a workout I hit 440lbs for 6 so I think I can set more aggressive goals for Deadlift, plus I’m probably best built for it over the others).
Not too concerned about physique or other things, but I do incorporate a lot of other things in my training (speed/sprint training, bodybuilding accessories, little conditioning etc). I like to be well rounded with my training as much as I can, and in the process if my physique improves that will be a nice bonus.
Started TRT (100mg/week of cyp) Mid December 2019. Got bumped up to 150mg/week Mid Feb. I’m going to add on 200mg/week of Test PP (phenylproprionate) spead out of 3x per week. So total test dosage is 350mg/week. Plan is to run this for 10 weeks. I have aromasin and nolvadex on hand just in case.
Recently finished a RP Fat Loss phase where I lost 12 lbs. Finished that a month ago and moved into their recommended maintenance phase so I have slowly been adding calories back in each week. Protein is at about 1g/lbs bodyweight and carbs vary depending on what I’m doing (training days I’ll take in 250-300g, non-training days I only take in 100g), fats are steady at 100-110g per day from healthy sources).
Monday - Upper Body (Heavy Bench + Accessories)
Tuesday - Sprint/Speed + Lower Body (Heavy Squat, Lighter Deadlift variation+ Accessories)
Wednesday - Some type of active recovery/cardio (I enjoy long bike rides)
Thursday - Upper Body (Volume Bench + Accessories)
Friday - Sprint/Speed + Lower Body (Heavy Deadlift, Lighter Squat variation+ Accessories)
Saturday - Upper Body (extra pump session… bis/tris/shoulder etc.)
Sunday - Active recovery/cardio or completely off
That’s all for now. I trained yesterday so I’ll push that up right now and we’ll go from there. Excited to share this journey with you guys.
