5 weeks in, up 50lbs!
Not on my body weight, but on my bench press. I went from bench maxing 275 to 325 in 5 weeks. 10lbs a week! Sad to say that my weight has only gone up 7lbs at the most, more like 5lbs. Yes, I am eating enough (4000+cals), but I might be a litle too active. I've been playing tennis a couple times a week, which I'm thinking might be burning my needed calories. I haven't taken a bf test yet, but I'm positive it's down, I can see a difference. At the least, I feel incredibly stronger than before and feel really good about that. 7 weeks to go.
I'll update more near the end of my cycle.

Excellent bro. I wouldn't sweat the weight gain yet. With the weeks you have left, I would expect the best to come.(provided your diet, rest, and training are top notch)
You might want to cut that tennis down to. Depending on what your goals are.

Whats your cycle look like?
07-23-2002, 10:12 AM #4
My first cycle is:
weeks 1-3 dbol 30mg/day (I had to stop early because of kidney probs)
weeks 1-10 test 400mg denkall
weeks 1-10 eq 400mg spectro labs
weeks 7-12 winny 50mg **tabs
1mg liquidex eod, clomid post cycle
Everything should be kicking in about now, so hopefully i can gain my goal of 15 keepable lbs in the next 7 weeks.

What kind of kidney problems and what were the symptoms? Curious bro.

My plan was to run dbol for 5 weeks but ended up to only be 3 because of huge lower back/kidney pains. It was torture, no matter what position i was in, i could always feel it. I started urinating blood, and went to a doctor. My doc said I had a kidney stone and did a bunch of tests for it, even injecting iodine in my blood and did a bunch of exrays. I stopped the dbol that day I went to the doc and everything cleared up, the stone never came out, so I figured that there was no stone and it was just from the dbol. they were 5mg pink thais. i recovered fairly quickly and will probably save the dbol for a bridge some day down the road.

WOW Common sense!
I just had to say wow someone who actually listens to their doctor. So did they find a stone or not, sounds like you got a CT-Scan. The hematuria (blood in urine) in younger folks pretty much means its a stone unless the orals cause it? Im not sure so thats what the ? is for. Oh yeah and props to another Sounder Im on the Eastside and work downtown.

JP1570, thanks for the advice, i think i'll try that for a week or so. I'll drop the liquidex and see if I can add a little bit of water on me and if needed, add it again later. i have nolvadex on hand so I don't need to worry too much about gyno.

that a quite good gain

the determining factor between your strength and weight gain is most likely your training. change your training to a hypertrophy specific style if you wish to gain more weight.

Was this the first time you benched 325? Or were you at that weight before. Remember shit comes back fast, but if not congrats

at the time, it was the first time i ever benched 325, later wound up at 365lb 3 times with assisted spotted reps at the end of my cycle.
Post cycle, the strength went down more than I thought it should, I now do 335 3 times, but i'm clean right now with nothing in me but creatine.
