SD Cycle Progress Cycle


Alright lads,  
Cycle, diet and routine already posted in PDSTB but overview here FYI: 
Cycle SD 21 days@20mg. 
OCS [Genetic Edge Cycle Insurance for pre-week 1, and I will continue this through the 3-week cycle and into PCT. I also anticipate taking Taurine from this weekend at 3g, upping to 5g if required.
PCT Clomid

Breakfast (Meal 1): 10mg SD, 100g of oats blended with 30g whey protein, 500ml of semi skimmed milk, one banana and a sachet of Genetic Edge Cycle Insurance (+some brown linseeds, 1000mg cod liver oil, multi vits). Slice of wholemeal bread too.  
Mid-Morning (Meal 2): handful of nuts, tuna sandwhich. 
Lunch (Meal 3): 200g of fresh fish, white meat served with steamed vegetables and 75g rice or 100g pasta.  
Mid-Afternoon (Meal 4): Tuna sandwhich/100g meat/fish and/or 30g protein shake with 50g oats/carbs.  
Pre-workout (Meal 5): 75g oats with 500ml skimmed milk. 
Dinner (Meal 7): 200g steak, fish, chicken with vegetables and/or rice/pasta. 
Pre-Bed (Meal 8): casein/cottage cheese/30g whey protein shake. 

Depending on the time of day I train, the flow of meals may change.  

Day 1 10mg at 9:00 AM an hour before the gym. Felt so tired this morning and well bleary eyed. Did chest and tricepts. An astonishingly understated session, feelling rather weak and out of it. Was one of them sessions that comes around once every few months...not a good start! 
Shoulders and bicepts tomorrow...

    Nice one due.

    Hey don't worry about the bad session... I have had 2 very medioka sessions up to now, SD is making me very lethargic, but I'm holding on for those strength increases!

    Diet lookin good too!

    Thanks mate. I'm half way through day 2 and it's feeling OK. Very hungry which is good. I'm feeling nice and hungry most of the time. Mixed oats/protein in 500ml milk three times a day breaks the meals up nicely...but I'm still thinking of banging dinner on an hour early...

    Hi mate. I was 13'4 training earlier in year with BF @ 10.5%. Height 185cm. Now my weight has dropped to 12'4 through poor dietr and lack of training abroad with work. BF is up too. Started eating and training again for 2 weeks before starting SD.

    Day 2

    Shoulders and bicepts today. Felt good in the gym, definately not lifting what I can but I don't want to overdo it at this early stage. Appetite is good. Feel like my legs are well sore (walked a few miles on Monday) but prob has nothing to do with the SD. Back tomorrow and rest Friday...


    Update 18:05 just eaten dinner, 200g turkey breast cooked with garlic, ginger and chilli, and 150g pasta.

    I'm still starving. 

    Think I'll cook some oats up and a bit of tuna.

    Off to pics tonight and she wants us to eat butter popcorn...how am I going to get out of that one!

    Day 5
    Chest

    Flat DB raises 30kg 3x8 34kg 2x8
    DB fly 4x10 20KG
    Press 3x8

    Nice updates mate.... Be interesting to see how the weight has gone up!

    Most of us have been feeling pretty lethargic from SD... Abit of caffeine, I find helps with this.

    I have mate...tonight...was about to update last couple of days progress when I got in...so...got weighed on the JJB electric scales...and my weight is up 8 pounds since last Tuesday...I'm more than surprised about this. I've been eating really clean but in bulk and ad some decent sessions, bar one or two chest exercises owing to lower back pain. But this has exceeded my expectations and set me up for a exciting final 2 weeks. 

    I lost a lot of mass and strength overseas during the last 3 months so I wonder if this is 'memory' as much as SD...

    Yeah I've not been to bad on that one so far mate. Only thing is sometimes waking up in the morning I feel like I've had a few beers the night before, almost hung over. I'm thinking it's perhaps dehydration but I get no signs or suggestions that it is that. I'll up my water all the same...

    Day 6
    Rest
    Diet as previous but with 200g white fish (grilled) for lunch with 75g pasta and 300g steak for dinner with various vegetables.
    Packing in the mixed oats/whey/banana shakes up to 3 times per day. Just there is some 2,500 calories alone!
    So far no sides or major lethargy to speak of.

    Day 7
    Shoulders and bi's
    25kg seated DB raises 3x10
    20kg lateral raise 3x10
    35kg upright row 3x10
    18kg standing rear lateral raise 3x8

    Preacher curl
    standing and sitting 3x8 30kg

    Session went OK. Back pain (non SD related) means I'm having major issues getting the DBs off the floor and into lifting position. Any seated DB raises and DB press, I believe, I will have to scrap and introduce some other exercises, most probably on the Smith. Not good as I like my DB raises and DB press and was hoping to hit 38kg again or even higher.

    Day 8
    Back
    Lat rear pull downs wide and narrow 6x8 75kg
    Single arm row 34kg 3x8
    Machine pullovers 3x8 70kg
    Shrugs 34kg 4x10

    Diet: as above but with big tuna salad for lunch and for dinner a Thai fish curry (300g) and a load of fresh vegetables and 75kg rice. 

    Weighed tonight at the gym and saw an 8 pound increase! So very happy on this. I think a lot of the weight I lost abroad is coming back quickly with this high cal diet for sure. 

    I'm hoping for good lean gain over the coming 2 weeks and will keep my diet as is for week 2. Though for week 3 I may cut my carb intake if I feel that more fat is being gained over muscle. 

    One thing I noticed tonight: the JJB machine for weight, body fat, height and BMI etc said that my body fat was 44%!!!!!!

    Anyone else had such a weird turnout on this machine? It's really freaking me out....44%!!!!!!

    Dude... you won't be 44% lol... trust me, you would certainly know if you were 44% !

    The thing is with the digital scales that measure your BF, they are just not accurate.
    The best way to do it if you want to know for sure, is to buy some callipers and look on the internet exactly how to do them so it's an accurate reading.

    How much do you weigh altogether mate, and how tall are you?

    Your diet is looking good anyway mate, your eating all the right stuff, so I would just keep it up.
     
    I'm in a similar situation to you in the fact that I lost some mass while cutting, along with body fat, so I definately think the muscle memory helps with these gains.

    I'm feeling you on the "hangover" like feeling in a morning too! I think it is the dehydration, because my mouth is always really dry and I can't wait to get some water down me
