  1. Maybe am being picky but got a tub of dbol today and it was short 8 tablets what do others do in these situations
  2. Hi Everyone, Im currently at the stage of cutting and I'm already thinking ahead to bulk starting end of September time. I already know i need to eat between 3000 - 3500 calories a day to bulk however with my work its difficult to split my training across the week - i normally end up doing 3/4 days in a row then nothing except walking on the remaining days. Should i eat the 3000 - 3500 calories a day even on off days or should i reduce my intake slightly in order to not gain fat. Thanks
  3. Hello, I started out a few years ago at 195lb, very unfit & unhealthy. I did a year long cut at which I ended up at a measly 118lb! From February this year I started lifting seriously at a gym following the fierce 5 routine. I am almost in my 11th week & I am seeing slow strength gains & I have put back on a lot of fat. I am currently at 148lb @ 5’8”. Can you guys see much progress in muscle mass on the attached pics? Myself I cannot see much difference apart from fat gains. I know 11 weeks is nothing but should I be seeing more progress? I am in this now for life so I am not bothered how long it takes as long as I am making progress. 38 male 5'8" I am eating around 2200 calories a day. Everything is logged & weighed. Protein - 138g Carbs - 248g Fat - 73g I prep all my main meals & eat nearly the exact same thing every day. Mainly Chicken, veggies, oats, Peanut Butter. Thanks.
  4. Hi all, I'm new to this forum and thought i'd begin a log to hold myself accountable. I've lost a couple of kgs of BW intentionally in the last couple of weeks and want to gain any possible mass before I go abroad, firstly for a holiday and later for study. I'm about a week into a sort of old school full body program i've been using to progress every session if possible so i'll post up those previous sessions. I won't be staying on full body for too long though and will transition to a split. Starting off with low volume and some drop sets. Bodyweight right now is about 88kg and want to get up to around 91kg and get some PBs along the way. Day 1 went as follows: Front squat (slow descent and paused) - 110kg x 2 x 8 Pullovers - 35kg x 2 x 10 Pendlay Rows - 110kg x 1 x 12 Close grip pulldown - Level 16 x 11 Followed up with Calves, Leg ext, Lateral raises, and tricep work
  5. Hello everyone, Just joined the site and happy to have found it. I have been a regular gym user and runner for years but having had my first child 2 years ago my routine lapsed and having had my second child 6 weeks ago I now have no time at all for the gym and want my pre-baby body back! I'm looking for advice on the best nutrition / diet for a mama that can't run or gym (I walk for miles most days) so I can drop the fat and bulk a little muscle. I am breastfeeding so need good fats / calories for both myself and baby. I have heard drinking breastmilk is a good way to bulk - any thoughts:?? TIA, NL
  6. Good morning guys Got my hands on some rip blend. Test prop 100mg, mast prop 100mg, tren ace 75mg. Just wondered if it would be worth adding in some extras? Its my first time with tren so I'll see how I react to it at this dose. But maybe extra test and mast? I have a few vials of both (and extra tren if needed) my goals are to maintain or maybe drop a little body fat and add some lean mass. Quick cycle history, did a few test prop cycles when training Muay Thai twice a day, 6 days a week. For recovery and maintaining muscle mass really, but gained well on them. My last cycle was (almost) a success. Did a dbol, test enth, mast enth cycle. Ate like a trooper and gained really well. The second half of the cycle I was in Thailand and caught some crazy sickness right before PCT. not your normal Bangkok belly, I was ill for 2 weeks, couldn't eat a solid meal for over a week. Dropped over 20lbs, obviously a lot of water but also definitely muscle and body fat, it f's you up mentally when you drop a t shirt size almost overnight. The good thing is I'm really lean and ready to bulk. My stats age 32, height 5'8", weight 180lbs, body fat less than 10% Proposed cycle rip blend 1ml eod with added test and mast so... 8 weeks Test prop 150mg eod mast prop 150mg eod tren ace 75mg eod arimidex and hcg from beginning of cycle I would carry on with test prop for a couple more weeks until the tren has cleared. PCT clomid 100/50/50/50 tamoxifen 20/20/20/20 DAA 3g per day any thoughts on this cycle for a lean bulk?
  7. Evening all, I have to admit, i'm a bit stuck and it's getting me down now. I've been trying to bulk for a while and am getting no where, i do it for about a week, put on 1lb and then loose confident in the macros i set out. What do you guys (and girls) recommend as a ratio for bulking. Im currently eating approx 3500kcals (cant remember what ratio). My other question is should i just do compound movements, i have been going heavier on the weights (and slowly getting stronger thank f*ck). Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

  9. Hi, would just like some feedback on my bulking attempt as the scales and other things are messing with my head! This is 5 months in, would you say there is a significant difference? I'm not sure anymore ?. Thanks
  10. Good morning everyone first of all I just wanted to introduce myself, this is my first post on this forum. My name is Robert Mitchell and I am a student at the University Of Portsmouth. I have been going to the gym for about 2 years now and within that time I have lost over 2 stone in weight so I have not reached my weight and lean goal through a very cardio heavy workout regimen. But since Christmas I have been trying to focus on body building in particular my arms, chest and abs, so I have been focusing on more weight based training and also a new diet plan. My new diet plan try's to focus on a clean bulk with me consuming upwards of 3,500 calories a day through 4-5 meals a day, I have begun to track the exact macros using fat secret and I will post a link to my daily food breakdown but in short I am getting: 105g of fat. 280g carbs. 128 protein. find my daily breakdown plan here: http://www.fatsecret.com/export/46988373/9ABC2/17214/day/food/FoodDiary_170217_foods.pdf?lang=en&mkt=GB I would love it if I could get some feedback on my diet like things to change within it as I have found I have put on 1/2 a stone if not more over a 2 week period and I would just love to know if I'm on the right sort of path as I'm still very new to this bulking thing. Thank you in advance, Robert Mitchell
  11. Hi all, So I started at the gym on Monday. I've "started" at the gym numerous times over the years and never stuck with it but this year I turned 40 and I know it's time I sorted my self out. I'm 6'3" and my body type is generally mesomorph although I'm currently borderline obese (body fat @ 28%) weighing in @ 17st. I'm doing mon/tues & thur/fri at the gym. Over the years, I've done tons of reading on the theory of bodybuilding etc but I'm not sure what to do about my diet. I want to gain muscle but loose the fat - I know that these goals tend to conflict as most gain requires excess calories whereas fat loss requires a calorie defecit. I'm currently hitting around 2000 - 2600 calories a day with my protein being around 130g - 150g coming mostly from chicken breast or tuna/eggs and a whey shake twice a day. My short-term goal is for mid June - I have a wedding to attend. The last wedding I went to in July last year I felt fat as f**k and swore the next time I would be trim. So - What should my game plan be? Should I eat less calories or aim to consume more for 2 months before doing a very basic "cut" for 2 months? Here's what my routine consists of...all exercises are 3 sets of 6/8 reps - in terms of weight, each exercise I struggle to complete the last set. Any help, pointers, suggestions are obviously welcomed. Cheers, Wayne
  12. Hi guys, first post and new to this site, I'm looking to start my first jabbing cycle, I have Tmt with 100mg tren 100mg masteron and 225mg test e per ml i also have more test e at 275 per ml + airmadex my intentions are to run it at 1ml of each per week stopping Tmt one week before test, then pcting on clomid. I'm 22 105kg 6ft my question is, is this enough? Should I add/ take away anything? thanks
  13. Hi Guys, I've done several Test cycles, nothing complicate: just 800mg / week for 10 - 12 weeks then PCT of course. On the last cycles I tried to add the Tren oral prohormone for the first 6 weeks which was popular back in the time and I was quite happy with it. Now for my next bulk cycle I would like to add something more to my test cycle hoping to see some results. What about the Deca, is it a good choice? Considering I always run test 800mg / week what dosage should I take (test / deca) ? I've read several logs with the general test:deca ratio of 2:1 but I would like to follow your advice. Thank you very much to everyone which would step in here and give me a little advice.
  14. Hey guys, English is not my first language so I'm sorry If there are some mistakes in the following. First of all, here are some of my stats: height: 1,77m / 5'10", weight: 74kg / 163 lb & as you can see I still have a lot of belly fat, but at the same time my arms (& legs) are skinny.. My aim is an athletic physique, a body similar to Cristiano Ronaldo's. I'm currently eating ~3000 cal trying to gain max. 1 lb per week, while getting stronger in all compound lifts. I do a Push/Pull/Legs split & I go to the gym 4-5 a week. My Bench Press is ~160 lb, Shoulder Press ~45lb with Dumbbells, Row ~72lb with Dumbbells. Unfortunately I can't do squats, deadlifts or any other exercise that puts a lot of pressure on my lower back because of bad back conditions. Now I really don't know If i should continue bulking because my fat stomach and my high body fat % makes me feel uncomfortable but at the same time I don't want to have these skinny arms anymore.. It's such a dilemma to me & I hope some of you can help me make my decision!!
  15. Morning chaps, im new to UKmuscle I've been reading the forums for a while but can't seem to find the answer I'm looking for. Im 6"3 104kg and I'm currently around 18% BF ive currently been on a bulk for around 4 weeks and I've only gained around 4-5lbs my macros have been 220P 600C and 120F between 4200-4500Cals. My jobs quite active and I've worked out my calories and macros after working out my BMR so I'm in a calorie surplus. However i work nights 9PM- 5:30AM then train when I finish and finally sleep after my meal around 8Am-3PM. My meals are big but spaced out. Meal 1(post workout) 200-225C 60P 15F 7 hours sleep Meal 2 (5-6 o'clock) 200C 100p 50-60F Meal 3 (1:30AM) 200C 60P 50F if im short on macros I'll snack on little things to meet the remaning macros. Can anyone shed any light on to why I'm not gaining so much? Apologies for the long post but i thought id keep it informative so people have a good idea of what I'm doing. all replies are much appreciated kind regards

  18. Afternoon all. This winter I plan on having a 4/3 month bulk. After that I will start to lean out again before starting cycle. My diet and training is consistent year in, year out. this will be my 1st attempt at bulking. (Good by abs) for now I wouldn't be using gear for this, just a food plan. Anyone have any good plans that they follow?? Or what is the general rule for fat,calories, protein intake per day??
  19. Sup fit lads, Im going on almost a Gram of Test only, by sunday for roughly 20-22weeks. And i have found 2 bottles of anavar 50mgs 60 Pills per Box laying around and thought about using then up. I dont need them as a kickstart because im frontloading the Test. My Goal is it to adding plenty of mass but fairly lean, No watery gains or Heavy excess of Fat. Have you Guys ever added anavar to your cycles in Order to increase mass gains? Or wont the var do much at this Large Dose of Testosterone. I only want to add it to get more Protein synthesis/anabolism which is equal more gains. Not for a dry, veiny look or strenght gains at all, just lean muscle mass increase.
  20. I often wonder this as it's a journey I am currently on! Is it possible to bulk up a bit and get bigger arms, chest,legs etc and still be really fit to go running, play football and so on? The only reason I'm asking is because whilst I regard myself as pretty fit and do a lot of cardio per week, balanced with weight training, I don't feel like I'm improving in size all that much. So, is it time to change the workout to something more forgiving or cut out the cardio? I take it you can't have both?
  21. Anybody have any reports on this yet can't see much info about so will do an update once it gets started properly..
  22. So about to come off and run power pct and let it all clear out then jump back on. Just did summer with ace prop and mast prop. My plan : something different and new that I haven't done before but want to gain serious mass. Leane mass with diet in check, slowly upping kcals using clean food and cardio added to stop/minimise gaining fat. Week 1-18 1000mg pw test enant ( will be either alpha, Balkan, Baltic, pharmacom ) never used more then 800 test Week 8-18 600 nnp pw - probably pharmacom or alpha - new compound, new used nnp Week 8-18 200 tren hex pw - Baltic or Balkan ( mostly likely Balkan due to price and its 100mg/1) - again never tried hex before week 12-15 100mg Oxys week 15-18 20-30 superdrol and then cruise on 250 test e a week till summer cut. Any thoughts ? Also had mast e at 600 mg in mind instead of tren hex.
  23. My 12 month transformation plan Appreciate any feedback. thanks
  24. Starting this cycle soon. Any advice guys? Thanks
  25. Hey s first i guess i'll say hi and introduce myself! Im Sean, i'm 26 and I've been training for the past 7 years, always called myself a hardgainer but at the time i was never really eating enough, i was a massive meat eater for 24 years of my life but the past 2 years i have become a Vegetarian and now this is where i am struggling to gain weight/ muscle mass, I'm not looking for the "quick gains" and expecting to gain 10lbs in a month, i have a goal to be around 92-3kg lean gains this time next year, but currently feel like the machinist (yeah massive body dismorthpia ...some quick stats: height: 6'3 weight: 84kg calorie range 3000-4000 I have trained 5x5, calisthenics, hit, sprints, running, kettle bells, boxing, karate, thai boxing, I'm training calisthenics currently but want to get back into a weight lifting routine as thats what i was doing when i was at my heaviest...just feel lost where to start a again. I also follow the lean gains protocol which i mainly started when i was eating meat as i liked the fact i could eat a joint of beef in one sitting and it kept the visceral fat away. my weight has range from my heaviest being 99kg, which at the time i was doing the whole GOMAD diet and having 1.5lbs a steak and 15 eggs a day, to my lightest being 75kg (post marathon me) I just can't seem to add weight now! Plus the past 2 years i have not been myself, started to become anxious, more in on myself, feeling weak and lethargic...So my curiosity got the better of me and i got my free testosterone levels check and they came out at a dismal 263 (normal ranges 300-1000) So I'm thinking this also has something to do with my inability to gain good weight. One thing i will point out is that the low-t doesn't seem to effect my ability in bed or desire for it as me and my gf are at it everyday. Just looking for advice and help from people who have overcome this problem, know of any good vegetarian bulking diets and who can point me in the right direction for a great workout. Regarding diet i am wanting to follow a clean bulk preferably as i;ve just recently given up sugar due to well all the s**t it causes within the body (low-T being one) Oh and to advice me on ways to raise my T-levels, I'm not against having testosterone therapy injections though, Im currently taking ashwagandha, maca root, vitamin d and b12 and forskolin as a natural test boost
