I thought id write a bit of an Epidrol review as I didnt keep a journal of any sort. Its mainly for my own records but feel free to ask anything.
Start Weight: 13 stone 5 (I was 15 stone (fat) in the beginning of December, dieted to 13 stone 5 at which point I started the cycle ~ 9 weeks ago)
Height: 5 Foot 8
Diet: Around: 4200 calories day. The vast majority being clean.
Previous Cycle History: None
Cycle: Epidrol 30mg per day for six weeks.
PCT: Nolva D1 60mg, D2-10 40mg D11-21 20mg. Today is day 19 of PCT.
Supplements: Whey, Dextrose, Milk Thistle, Taurine. Creatine used during PCT.
Cycle Goal: Lean bulk - to add size and strength but not too much fat.
Training: 4 day split, which is the same Ive been doing since January.
Mon - legs
Tues - Chest & bis
Wed - Cardio & abs
Thur - Back & calfs
Fri - Shoulders & Tris
Sat - Easy cardio
Sun - Rest
Cycle Positives: Mood lift and eagerness to train although this may have been all in my mind. Strength increase from weeks 3 to 6, it has dropped off a bit but is still up overall. Gradual but consistent weight increase throughout the cycle. Increase in libido during the first few weeks.
Cycle Negatives: The main negative for me was the back pumps. These were only an issue during deadlifts and gradually got worse each week. I was drinking 3 litres a day so upped this to 4 and added some taurine but it had little impact. Other negatives included a few spots, not many but they were huge. A drop of in libido during the last 2 weeks.
At the end of the cycle I was 14 stone 2. Weighed today (day 19 of PCT) and im 13 stone 13, so im up 8 pound overall and hopefully wont loose any more. Some of this was fat.
Overall Im happy with the cycle and feel I got as much out of it as I could. Only trouble now is that I want to go again!!
Took some pics earlier unfortunately I didnt take any before the cycle to compare them against but I think most of the weight has been added to my shoulders with some on my love handles. My skinny legs are catching up slowly but need some work as ive neglected them due to being either lazy or injured. Comments & constructive criticism welcome.
Pumped up just to make me feel good!
