Going to transfer my log over from another forum to here just to get more feedback on my progress. I'll start it from the end of my cut about a month ago till now, with biweekly updates on Thursdays and Sundays. Any honest feedback is appreciated, no matter how harsh it may be. My goal is to put on the size I need without getting too fat too quickly like I have in the past.

Thoughts: The MK lethargy is REAL. Holy shit, I felt so tired today even with a decent night's sleep. Couldn't study at my dining room table- had to stay in bed. This probably hurt my performance in the gym, and I was pretty upset with how it went today. 275 on squats felt great, then 315 felt horrible. With my weight going up, I would've thought my strength would start coming back sooner...

Morning Weight: 184.4

Rest Day
Thoughts: Feeling a bit better lethargy-wise today. Even though my training hasn't been progressing like I thought it would coming into this bulk, I'm happy that I can feel my recovery is a lot better. Once I get over this lethargy, hopefully I will be feeling great in the gym. I'm definitely looking watery-er, and I will be taking some pics for updates in the upcoming days to get some feedback from you guys.
Strangely enough, I do feel somewhat bloated, which typically never happens to me on only 3700 calories. It's like I can feel that there's more food down there, and it's just giving me that weighed down feeling. I've never had a problem eating, so it's strange to not have an appetite on what I consider a low intake.

Thoughts: Did surprisingly well on my neuro final today and then I've got two words for ya- Holy. Pump. I tried to take my shirt off for pictures and legit couldn't without tearing my tank. Haven't felt this kinda pump in a long time. I am a bit concerned with the rapid weight gain, and I dropped the MK due to BP/FBG concerns. Hopefully in a few days some of the water comes out since I dropped it.

Thoughts: Felt great again, although I'm surprised my strength wasn't more increased. I got more reps on most exercises, but I thought I'd be able to rep out 225 back to where I was pre-cut. Just felt super strong going into today, but oh well. I feel as though I've gained 5 pounds in my upper body, but 20 pounds around my waist- I'm just so bloated from my pretty bad gut motility right now. Hopefully this will fix itself soon...

Rest Day:
Thoughts: Kinda concerned about the weight to be honest. I know it's because I feel like I have a ton of food in my guts, but I really just wanna get that flushed out so I can feel 100% again. I almost want to use a laxative or something to get things going how they normally are haha...
Not gonna track calories today. I'm headed to a theme park with a friend for his neurology conference from 7 pm - 11 pm. They've rented it out with food and beverage included, so my plan is to just eat some chicken and veggies for three meals before going, then eat whatever I'm feeling (within reason) at the park. Happy my blood pressure has come back down, but I am still obviously bloated and experiencing CTS symptoms from the MK I dropped. Hopefully those go away soon.

Thoughts: Bad session. Had to go in the morning due to anatomy all afternoon, which is when I prefer to train. Lost my balance on the last rep of 315 squat (could've probably got 4 or 5 total) and I fell forward. Kinda feel a twinge in my hip flexor, but no pain- just a weird feeling. Well that threw me off for the remainder of the session. That said, my ability to add reps to the same weight has gone way up since last week. I wish my strength would come in terms of higher numbers, but higher reps will help my hypertrophy goals anyway. Hungry, weight is stalled out. I'm gonna see where I'm at on Monday and assess my caloric intake then.

Thoughts: Great workout. Definitely could have gotten 225 for 5 or 6 if I was fresh, honestly probably could have squeezed out that last rep, but I was grinding very hard, form was breaking down badly, and I decided not to risk that. I also did feel a bit sore in my shoulders and arms from yesterday, so I'm looking forward to hitting chest fresh and absolutely crushing my numbers on Tuesday. Upped my Asin from 12.5 mg MTh to 12.5 g MWSat, and I felt better (nipples no longer sore, little lumps gone down) just a few hours after adding in this Saturday dose. No idea how some of you guys get away without using an AI- I aromatize like it's my job.

Thoughts: Great workout. I do get worried about my progression on accessory lifts (upping weight too fast), since I know I can't just keep upping the weight forever- rope hammer curls in particular. Felt good at wake up, but tired around 1-2 pm, tired around bed time (just started Glycine yesterday).

Thoughts: High weigh-in, maybe due to meal timing from last night and early weigh-in this morning? Bench feels awesome, but I need a reliable spotter to push it. Love these drop sets, getting a great pump. Maybe need to move over to the machine felt raise instead of dumbbells? I really, really feel it in my lateral delts, but I'm always unsure if my form is good.

Thoughts: Man, am I SORE. My legs are really feeling it from yesterday's session, and even my chest is still a bit tired from Tuesday. My sleep is very, very bad right now, and I'm a bit worried that that's really cutting into my recovery capabilities. I was able to take a nap today, but still I really need to figure out a way to fix my sleep- no idea where to start though. My sleep hygiene has improved, my room is pitch black, I set the thermostat to 66. However, I still wake up with night sweats, often at the same exact time each night. Very weird, and I'm thinking it will hold me back in this growth phase. Like normal, that's probably me being a bit of a worry-wart though.

Thoughts: I'm happy with the switches I made to this workout. Going to drop the Drol due to suspicion of Progesterone-related gyno. Feeling vascular, overall good, but sleeping is still bad. Right delt hurt a bit on rear delt flies, not sure if it was from a great pump or if it's a bad movement for me.

Rest Day:
MW: 192.0
Thoughts: Legs feel a bit sore for some reason. I do walk a lot throughout the day (about 10k steps), but that shouldn't affect my leg recovery. Overall I have a general sense of wellbeing that is really nice to have. In other news, my roommate plans fell through for next year, so I'm just gonna say fuck it and find a studio apartment close to campus. Won't be saving the money I was hoping for, but I won't have to deal with people being flakes. We're studying Repro right now, so half of what we talk about is hormone physiology. It's funny learning about SERMs and AIs in class, and people are like "how do you already know everything about this?" And they say meatheads can't be intellectuals...

Thoughts: Good workout. Thinking I might get grip trainers since my grip strength is really holding me back on a lot of these back movements. I'm not tired in the gym, but I'm EXHAUSTED out of it. Legs feel like lead and just generally kinda dragging myself around. Very weird, but I can always hype myself out for a workout.

Frustrating, since I've been working to correct that, but I will continue to try to fix it. Donated blood today and I was still able to manage those numbers, which is for sure encouraging. Feel a little bit better- less red, easier to breathe, etc.

Thoughts: Holy back pump. Crushed this workout even though I feel so fatigued. I wonder if saving all my carbs for post-workout would help me not feel so tired going into my lift? In other news, I went crazy hypo today for the first time ever, and I have no idea why. I had to go to the car dealership for service on my car, and it ended up taking wayyyyy longer than I thought due to some unexpected costs that had me considering the trade-in value of my car, but it ended up pushing my meal back a bit. Got home and started sweating like crazy, had tunnel vision, felt very faint, etc. It was absolutely awful- 10/10 do not want to do again.

Rest Day:
Well I'm headed to my sister's medical school graduation, so I'm currently flying across the country. Not gonna be able to track food for the next few days, which honestly I do not like one bit. I always get worried that I'm gonna over-eat, then I end up under-eating, then sometimes I'll try to compensate for that. It's times like these that make me feel like a complete weirdo for my relationship with food. Anyways, I'll still be able to lift tomorrow and Saturday, just won't be getting food and morning weights in these next couple days. Overall I feel pretty tired and sore- a good sign I need my rest day. But I'm still progressing in the gym so I can't say my current split or lack of sleep is really killing my recovery.
Might bump the cals up a bit when I get back. I'm sure the weight drop is from donating blood, but I'd still like to keep the scale climbing if I can.

Rest Day:
Not much to say here. I woke up super early to travel across the country for my sister's med school graduation. Spent a lot of the day on the plane, then FEASTED on some dank barbecue at her boyfriend's grandparents' house. Brisket, pork, chicken, mac and cheese, cheddar biscuits, baked beans, salad (gotta stay healthy). Had two plates then felt like I couldn't move haha. I had saved 2200 calories for the meal, so I was planning on going to town.

Feel: Unreal pump, hate that my nutrition is off. Had my sister's graduation today, had to get all my meals out. Greek yogurt with fruit and granola for breakfast, chicken on romaine lettuce as a snack, leftover barbecue for lunch, Chipotle post-workout, then ribeye with sweet potatoes, beets, and cornbread for dinner. Had a Blondie with coffee ice cream for dessert. It was dank, but I just feel off when I can't track.

Feel: Veins didn't come out to play as much today, felt kinda bloated. Spent the whole day post-workout sweating my balls off moving my sister's boyfriend and my sister out of their places. Honestly, doing all that activity helped me feel a lot better after a lot of sitting around on the plane and at graduation activities and whatnot. But it wiped me the fuck out. Hopped on a plane and got back home just in time to go to bed.

Sunday May 13, 2018:
Rest Day:
MW: 189.0 BP: 117/61 Pulse: 63
Feel: Surprised my weight is where it's at after a few days of not tracking/eating out. I feel normal again now that I'm home and able to stick to my diet. I'm actually thinking of upping the calories by 200 each day to get my weight to trend upwards, as I've been at this number for a week or two now (climbed up to 192, now back down to 189). Honest Thoughts? I also added in Caber last night, and I can already feel my lumps are smaller and less painful- my gyno seems to be Prolactin-related. Hopefully I'll get that way shortly, and I'll start making size progress in addition to the strength progress I've been making.

I think I'll take MDW off (gym is closed on Sunday and Monday anyway) to let myself recharge. Might lower the cals a bit during that time too to just give my whole body a rest.

Feel: I'm gonna post pics in a bit, but I think I'm gaining size but a decent amount of fat, too. Maybe the mast I'm introducing tomorrow will show me it's a lot of water, but I'm considering taking some food out. I do feel pretty good recovery-wise today, though. Decided to take today down to 3000 calories, hopefully to give my GI a bit of a rest.

So here's some comparison pictures from along the way. Weight has increased from 176.6 at the bottom of my cut to 193.4 today. I'm going to drop 200 out of daily calories since I feel like I've been force-feeding a bit lately. Obviously I'm not as tight as I was down at that weight, but I feel like size is coming on, too. I just don't want to be gaining too quickly. I understand that a lot of that weight is going to be from water and glycogen, but I would like to mitigate fat gain as much as possible.

Any feedback as far as progress (rate of muscle/fat gain), training, etc. will be appreciated!

All right guys, quick stack question. So I've got some Mast E coming in tomorrow that I'm using to help push my A:E ratio in the right direction. Right now my current stack is 525 Test E, 525 NPP a week. I'm thinking my options are as follows:

1.) Lower the Test dose to 375 per week, add in 125 Mast E per week, keep NPP the same.

• This would mostly be done for pinning convenience, as I'm using 1 cc pins right now. I would be able to pin 0.75 mL NPP ED, 0.25 mL Test E five days a week, and 0.25 mL Mast E two days a week.​
2.) Keep Test and NPP doses the same, add in Mast E at 125 per week. Add a couple more pin sites to my rotation as I'd need to double pin on two days out of the week.
3.) Keep Test and NPP doses the same, add in Mast E at 250 per week. Add a couple more pin sites to my rotation as I'd need to double pin on two days out of the week.

• As I've never used Mast before, I feel like starting it at the lower dose would be better (especially since I'm not expecting a whole lot of muscle-building out of it, if any at all), but if you guys who have used it tell me that it's essentially ineffective that low, that would make me more inclined to start it at 250.​
4.) Any other recommendations that you might have. I'd even be willing to consider upping the NPP dose and lowering the test down to 300 or so with a little bit of Mast thrown in there. I'm thinking about 125 Mast E per week (0.25 mL E3.5D), 300 Test E (0.5 mL E3.5D), and 700 NPP (1 mL ED).

The best cycle I ever had was 700 NPP, 550 TestP. I'd say NPP higher than test.

Feel: So much better after yesterday's lower calorie day/ Appetite is 100% back, GI is all good, just overall feeling solid. I'm planning on changing up my training next week- definitely going to take out shrugs. The question is to deadlift or not to deadlift?

Feel: Strength is kinda stalled out on Bench and I'm a bit upset about it. I'll look into it a bit more once my exams are over, but I think I may benefit from changing up my exercises a bit- ones that I can really feel in the chest (more dumbbell benching in particular). Added in Mast today- hoping to reduce the AI us as that kicks in. My gyno is essentially eliminated which is pretty sweet.

Feel: Had to move the belt up a notch today as I was getting pretty bad bruising last time I used it- the bulk train is going strong! My delts are crazy sore from yesterday and that felt-pec tie-in is really feeling it. I had an awesome lift today and I'm looking really vascular outside of the gym.
Unrelated to lifting, I had my last anatomy practical of the year, so I'm done with anatomy until September! Just have my written exam on Friday and I'll basically be done with classes till August. Just our cumulative exam on June 1st (that doesn't count for anything), so we're on that home stretch. Picked up some l-Theanine and Magnesium to see how it helps my sleep. Dropping the Psyllium Husk out of the supplementation to see if there's an effect on my GI.

Feel: Well I slept absolutely horrendously last night. Hoping it's a one-off thing and not related to the l-Theanine or Mg I picked up- still want to give those another shot. Feeling a bit sore overall, delts are still shot and the legs are feeling it (especially in that flute-ham tie-in area). Just gonna be studying all day for my exam tomorrow.

1-Arm Cable Curl: 20.5 x 15, 14, 10 Drop to 15.5 x 8 Drop to 10.5 x 10 (Right arm fatigued way before left arm for some reason).
Feel: Very much liked the substitution on the tri-set. I felt great today, didn't have any soreness at all carried over from my leg day- must've been a productive rest day the day before. In other news, I'm basically done with my first year of medical school! Had my last block exam today. All we have is a cumulative exam on the 1st of June that doesn't matter- we don't need to pass it to go on to 2nd year, it's essentially "for our own enrichment". Aka I'm not gonna study a second for it. Now if I can just find an apartment in this crazy expensive city...

Feel: I feel DB Bench way better than BB bench, so I'm glad I'm making this switch. I still want to get a big bench because I think it's super fun, so I'm not gonna take barbell out entirely. I ended up going out last night with a bunch of my friends to celebrate the end of 1st year. Didn't drink as that's not really my thing, but I didn't get back til like 2 in the morning then I was up at 730, so sleep definitely suffered a bit. Had a ton of fun though- I hadn't really been out since like March, so it was super nice to get back out and be a bit social again.

Rest Day:
MW: 195.2 (Still wet from a shower) Cals: ~3600 Macros: 286 P/ 302 C/ 147 F
Gonna go hiking with one of my roommates from college who's in town to see some of her friends that live out here- pray for my gains (jokes). They're probably gonna want to get food so I'm gonna let myself go off the meal plan for today if that's what we end up doing. Feeling pretty good overall and just gonna keep doing my thing. Also may have found a really solid apartment yesterday, so I'm considering tossing in my application in the next couple days. It's much closer to campus and closer to the downtown part of my city, which would just make things so much more convenient in terms of commuting and going out. Really hoping this one works out.

EDIT: Ended up going for a nice 3.5-4 mile hike today. Super hilly- my phone told me I climbed 58 floors worth of stairs and hit 15k steps (usually get 10k). Didn't end up going out to eat anywhere, but I finished the day off with the Cavs -Celtics game with my boy. Still got to weigh out all my food and have a good time today, life is good boys.
