Pussed out and went with a 30 day run of Omnevol (so much for a 'healthy, safe first cycle.') The prospect of needles didn't pass the wife test. I'm hearing now that Omnevol (Sustevol, Sostevol, yadda yadda) is now under investigation, and people are saying it's actually just Halodrol, Superdrol, and Phera-plex stacked.
I'm running Milk Thistle and Red Yeast Rice ED and am thinking about adding something for blood pressure, as it's getting noticeably high. Starting to have increased acne on face, neck and back. Mood's definitely different too. Pumps in the gym have been dramatic to the point of being annoying.
Gains have been mostly in terms of strength, anaerobic endurance, and muscle hardness/definition. At week 2, I've started actually putting on scale weight, but have not yet had my BF checked to determine how much of it is muscle and how much is water/fat. What obvious mass I have gained has been fairly lean looking in the mirror, for lack of a better explanation. I don't know how much of my strength and anaerobic endurance increase is attributable to the chemicals and how much is psychological, and I suppose I never will. My body feels wound tighter than an eight-day clock and I have an indomitable feeling most of the time. Again, these are "feelings" and obviously not "evidence."
My training regimen has been based around ample doses of bench, squat, deadlift and clean, usually at high intensity with little rest. Interspersed with this is lots of pull-ups, weighted pull-ups, presses, handstand pushups, thrusters, other staple crossfit exercises.
Diet hasn't been logged or even very measured. I eat as cleanly as possible, avoiding simple carbohydrates and processed foods, focusing on meat, fresh fruit and vegetables, grains, nuts and seeds. I find it very difficult to maintain a 3000+ calorie diet and do not, most of the time. I am consuming more calories now than is typical, though.
For PCT, I have 20 tabs of Clomid @ 50mg, and was planning on running Alpha Male. This decision due to availability and legality. Two weeks to go before the Omnevol runs out, so I've got a little time to work out exactly how my PCT will look. I'll post again when I'm starting PCT, and again after I've finished it.
Not sure if anyone's still reading at this point, and I apologize for turning this into a prohormone thread. Any sources I have are int, web sources, and I'm paranoid about getting ripped off or siezed, and there's the whole needle issue with the wife.
