Ok everyone, here we go!!
In the original post by DutchPharma asking for a logger, I was 4-6 weeks away from doing a bulker myself using the same exact compounds Dutch was asking someone to rep. So, I thought, what the hell, I’ll throw myself in there and not only maybe get some free gear but also a great opportunity for DutchPharma to really show their product. Also, after a 4 year layoff, I’m looking for a good, solid source as my old one is just too expensive now.
Why me? I emailed DutchPharma and told them my story. I’ll try to keep it short:
Been using AAS since 1996 off and on doing it the right way, coached by friend who was firefighter/paramedic, and got my gear from a nurse. They taught me right.
Anyway, fast forward to 2014 when I started a nice bulker of 1gm Sust EW kick-start with 50mgs dbol ED first 6 weeks. Cycle ended in November 2014. Ended up 245lbs 18-20% bf.
Then came worse time of my life. Mid December I got pancreatitis for 3rd time. Gall bladder full of sludge and stone. Removed it next day. One week later my common bile duct closed up and I was in worse pain of my life. They had to insert biliary/pt tube in my bile duct with a damn IV bag attached to my hip. Carried it for 9 months all the while having stents put in and out of bile duct hoping it would repair itself. It didn’t. Sept. 15th 2015 had surgery on pancreas to remove some bad spots, chop the closed part of bile duct and attach the two good ends together. It went well but I came out of all this diabetic type 2 and weighing 175lbs.
It’s been a struggle but for last 18 months I’ve been training with cables and bodyweight only using creatine and protein powder along with a good diet. As of today I’m 235lbs and muscle memory has been good to me.
I think I’m primed for a good bulker. I have the knowledge and experience to do it and make the adjustments if need be and I’m sure there will be some as I have lofty goals for this cycle.
So here goes:
I was supposed to run Sust/Deca/Dbol. I got the Sust and Deca but got DHB instead of Dbol. Time to adjust cycle. Never done DHB before so did research and my own trial. I injected 1/2cc DHB yesterday morning and yes, some PIP. On scale of 1-10, I give it a 4. Not too bad. Did the same with the Sust and Deca and happy to report absolutely no PIP.
Knowing this, and being my first cycle back and not wanting any disruption, I’ve decided to run the DHB weeks 9-16. If all goes accordingly, I’ll have some muscle mass, mindset will be fuck everything, I’m hitting the weights like a bat out of hell!
Pinning Schedule is M-W-F
Sust - 500mgs EW
Deca - 400mgs EW
Typical, kinda boring, but like I said; long layoff, good diet, proper rest and good training will produce gains.
DHB - 300mgs EW
Sust - 750mgs EW
Deca - 600mgs EW
Adex - .5 e3d
2 on 1 off
Chest/Abs/Tri’s (light, high reps)
Back/Calves/Bi’s (light, high reps)
Training will go heavy with more PL, Compound exercises weeks 9-16. Not sure yet, will update as I get closer to it.
Diet: Calories in the 3,500-3,900 range for first 8 weeks. May have to adjust.
Weeks 9-16 cals will obviously be increased and will update that as well.
Shooting for 250gms Protein
I’ll post what I ate each day. Don’t be surprised if you see a Whopper, some Big Mac’s, Buffet’s, Milkshakes, Loaded Pizza’s, etc… in there from time to time. I’ll gain a little unwanted fat but I know how to get it off. Not worried about that.
So, I think that’s about it. Oh, the pics. Going to take progress pics every 3 weeks I think. I will post my beginning pic as well.
And as always, I’m up for constructive criticism. Please tell me your thoughts and where I might be messing up. Or whatever.
Not going to hurt my feelings.
Thanks for reading and hope you follow. And if this log helps someone else here who has or is going thru a rough time physically and doubting whether you can get the fire back and get to the gym, all the better. Do Not Give Up has been my motto for 18 months and I’m about to go the fuck off. You can do the same!
Good Day Everyone and hope to be chatting.
