I neglected to mention that my wife and I added a morning GH pulse in with peptides, 200 mcgs ghrp2, 200 mcgs melanotan 2 and about 40 mcgs cjc with DAC. I typically do the cjc higher but I only had 2 milligrams on hand. DAC will build up a bit because it stays active so long.
It was day 14 on the peps today and we are both quite tan haha. At least I don't have to go eat protein bowl at Subway while she tans.
I weighed 181 at the gym before workout so that goal is pretty much done.
5X5 with 225 on the bench is coming along too. Seeing abs is another goal.
I definitely am liking the Lean AF! The moderately dosed 1-dhea helps with strength and hardness without the lethargy I usually get.
I did my usual day after leg day hour on recombinant bike yesterday and chest & tris today.
Chest & tris:
Cybex plate loaded bench press:
225 X4,1 almost no rest before makeup rep
Cybex Incline bench:
155 X5 G5
Cybex tricep press:
Cybex tri ext:
Rope push downs:
M 125 X25 G25
L 125 X25
R 125 X25
I did an hour on an upright stationary bike yesterday. I do some stand up pumping in high gear for varying intensity.
Today was back & bis. Some of my delt work is in this one also. We have a Cybex OHP machine at the gym that I can do palms facing in. My messed up shoulder do ok like that. I might start doing some delt/abs days at some point.
I have actually been going up toward the 5X5 with 225 on bench. Thought I was going to do that today but it wasn't happening. I'm not really that surprised on a cut tho.
When I was going try for the national record in the 181 lb 60 to 64 raw bench it was only 315 that I needed. Someone broke that already anyway.
Not doing badly tho. Gotta remember I had the covid pneumonia and all. Then I tore my pec and they shut the gym down while I was trying to work on it. Doing national record at the gym don't count haha.
Guess I'll work on power later with a lean gainer. I weighed 180 at the gym so I nailed that goal. It's weird I used to be quite cut at this weight. I'll get the muscle back at some point. Going to work on getting the abs back for last pic.
I couldn't get a good pic to show fat loss but I'm 13 lbs down and muscle is about the same. I will probably do a recomp soon to fix it more. Not really a bodybuilder per se anyway. It gets more difficult to be just big and cut in your 60s. This is my finish anyway. I got a couple days left with the Lean AF but just gonna pig out tomorrow. I weighed 159 in pic. Still look a bit fat but yall saw that belly in the first one.
Today was my last dose of Lean AF. I started doing 3 pumps a few days ago and this was my rinse the bottle out with 91% alcohol day. Seemed like a good dose.
I got the 10 X 10 squats but it was tough. I will do a review tomorrow. A higher dose of this for a lean gainer would be sweet. I steady ate Thanksgiving food the last few days and still weighed 180 at the gym.
I did my recombinant bike hour thing today.Always helps the legs after mad squat days. Anyway, here's my review of Leaf AF.
During the front end of my cycle I kept the weights going up. Usually, I would deload a bit before a cut but I didn't.
Even though I was dieting and doing a moderate dose my strength went up a bit at first. When I eventually started deloading it wasn't by much.
My opinion of this stack is it's great for cutting and would even be better at a higher dose, for a lean gainer. The muscle hardness in my quads is crazy. It's a bit dry for my old ass but adding in 4-dhea helped a bit. A test base would be better tho.
I will probably do another cycle of this as a lean gainer. If you can't tell, I like this. The 1-dhea is at a nice dose for strength without the lethargy.
