    After being flat out with work before my holiday, but still being able to loose about a stone in weight and get into a fairly decent shape for my jollies, ive decided its time to get some size back on before the winter weather sets in. Plus its easier doing a bulking cycle around work, eating what I want when i want etc, than it is trying to stay lean with low carb meals but being stuck on site or on the road and being unable to get the right food down my neck.

    Plan is a classic test, deca and dbol cycle till the new year, so roughly a 12 weeker. I always have a break from steds in the new year. Reason being im not as busy with door work. Having the extra pounds over the Christmas and New Year period is always a bonus when dealing with drunk idiots :)

    Cycle;

    12 weeks;
    1.5g Zafa Testonon 250mg EW
    750mg Alpha Deca 250mg EW
    100mg DS Danabol ED (first 3 weeks only, then drop down to 60mg ED for rest of cycle)

    Aiming to do more compound exercises during this cycle than before, so things I haven't done for a very long time, like Clean & Press and DY BB Rows etc. Will also start to include compounds like Deadlifting and Squats again, things I haven't done from past injuries. Had terrible lower back issues from work some years ago and have had tendon problems with knees. Just need to start with sensible weights and improve with form, as well as listening to by body and its aches and pains, rather than powering through at full speed. Screwed my knee up with tendonitis this way, was in tears with pain and out for weeks.

    aching all over today, last 3 days of training have worked well ha. Struggling to lift my arm above shoulder height due to lat pain ha. Nice having DOMS again [​IMG]

    jabbed 3ml into my right quad today, went in a treat. No discomfort yet or need for painkillers, see if any tops up later. I did have some PIP from my last quad jab on Wednesday, about 5hrs after jabbing. Simply placed a hot water bottle on the site while watching TV and PIP went within 30mins, was fine next day.

    Quad is fine from jabbing yesterday, no issues, can only just locate where I pinned.

    unsure if its the gear but had major trouble sleeping after work last night. Had a scoop and half of DY GHBlast and still struggled. Ended up having to reach for a Zopiclone, that did the trick :)

    started training again tuesday this week, was waiting on a phone call all day monday with work, had to pop out when i got the call but didnt know when it was coming, screwed my whole day up TBH as i couldnt really cook anything or pop to the gym.

    still did my jab yesterday so not a complete disaster. 3ml into left quad. No issues.

    BP felt high today, could feel it in my cheeks. Will be popping to the supermarket tomorrow for asprin, help lower it. Test levels are starting to feel high too. Starting to snap alittle more and boners can be a problem lol.

    Shoulders & Tri's;

    Clean & Press;


    10x 121lb
    8x 165lb
    4x 187lb
    4x 187lb << carried these on from the 4x reps above but doing standing military press, so didnt clean it when energy was gone, switched straight over to press rather than dropping the bar and squeezed some more reps out.

    Seated BB Press;
    10x 110lb
    8x 154lb
    4x 176lb

    Cable Extensions;
    12x 1/4 stack (forgot to look at weight)
    10x 1/4 stack
    8x 1/4 stack

    Close Grip Pushdowns;
    10x 100lb
    8x 130lb
    5x 140lb

    Rope Pushdowns;
    3x failure sets @ 50kg (roughly 10-8 reps each)

    Done.

    Weighed in at 16st 11lb.
        Sure it would have been more if diet was better yesterday.

    traps and rear delts are sore today, cant wait for back sesh later.

    had some proper deep and weird dreams last night, was in a scrap yard trying to get out while being chased. Ended up hitting someone with a claw hammer loads of times when he grab my arm. Bizarre lol.

    had some good news last night too. Was digging in my fridge for food and found this....

    [​IMG]

    completely forgot about it! Was using 4iu's ED on the run up to my holiday and pushed the box to the back of the fridge, out of sight, as my rents popped up afew times to check the house while i was away, so hid it from view.

    bonus! ha. Be using 4iu's again from today :)

    had a ****e day training yesterday, Legs. First a 10min drive turned into 30mins as someone crashed into a lorry. Then realised i hadnt drank my PWO shake. Then when i got there someone started talking to me i couldnt shake off. Then there was 2x olly bars on the squat rack each with 10x plates on, so had to unload all them to get started. Was shattered and ****ed off before i even lifted anything!

    quads were sore from jabbing too, but worked through it. Only problem was my head just wasnt in it now. Was yawning and energy dropped like a lead ballon. I bet from leaving my house to actually doing a set must have been 45mins rather than my usual 20mins.

    tried my best to battle through but was in the game TBH.

    Squats
    15x 121lb
    10x 209lb
    8x 297lb..... really wanted to do more, brought my knee wraps and everything but mentally wasnt there to try.

    Leg Press;
    8x 616lb
    8x 704lb
    8x 792lb..... long rests between sets, could have fallen asleep eyes felt that heavy!

    Leg Extenions;
    5x failure sets @ 1/2 stack (10-15 reps each)

    Standing Calve Raises;
    3x failure sets 3/4 stack (12-15 reps each)

    Done.

    went home ****ed off, so bought a chinese to cheer me up lol

    [​IMG]

    Friday....

    Decided to do some flat BB bench press today, havent done any for 5 years? Just something i didnt feel hit me very well in the past, so either used DB or a good Hammer Strengh machine.

    Thought i wouldnt be able to lift a great deal to start with due to form, but went well.

    BB Flat Bench;
    10x 121lb
    8x 209lb
    8x 297lb....last 2 reps spotted, but only slightly. Will carry on doing these this cycle, see what i can peak at.

    Incline BB Smith;
    10x 198lb
    8x 242lb
    8x 242lb....last 3 reps spotted

    EZ-Bar Curls;
    3x sets of 10x reps @ 88lb

    Standing Curls;
    2x failure sets with 40lb DBs..... arms at bursting point, still pumped from Wednesday sesh lol. Lookin good!

    Done

    Weight Tuesday; 16st 11lb
    Weight Friday; 17st 3lb
    ....... sweet [​IMG]
