    For those of you who follow me, know I recently sustained a pretty nasty partial pectoral tear. No worries! This cycle will not be attempted until I am well enough to make actual use of the supra-physiological hormonal levels. This is merely just fun for me to consider the idea of growing and the planning is always fun for me as well. I for one am sensitive to the drugs I use, so yes I do understand that my dosages are not "crazy" like some guys, and I understand that it makes this hypothetical log look less exciting to follow.

    Goals: Maintain general condition, I am terrible at guessing bodyfat levels but I got a faint christmas tree showing, Deltoid, Quad, Calf and Trap striations with some soft abs. I'm attempting to maintain this condition leading up to this cycle. I want to gain 10lbs of lean mass with this growth period. Bring up my chest and medial deltoid thickness, as well as general arm size mostly. My legs are my strength and my back is very well developed in comparison to my Chest, Shoulders and Arms so those areas will be first priority.

    Stats:
    • Height: 5'10
    • LBM (guess): 205lbs
    • Body Weight: 230lbs
    • Thighs: 26 inches
    • Biceps: 17.5 inches
    • calves: 18 inches
    • forearms: 14 inches
    • neck: 18.5 inches
    • waist: 31 inches
    • Shoulders: 54 inches
    • Chest under arms: 46 inches

    Cycle: I am thinking 10 weeks in length
    • Test P 300mg/wk (100mg Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday)
    • NPP 300mg/wk (100mg Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday)
    • Dbol 50mg ED (Pre-workout) (not sure if I will use this near the end of the cycle or the begining)
    • aromasin 6.25mg ED (lower dosage than during contest prep because a little estrogen is healthy)
    Diet: Stand Efferding Vertical Diet, Starting at about 3,000kcals and I am shooting to consume about 3,500kcals per day by the end.
    • Protein: 260g
    • Carbs: 290g
    • Fat: 90g
    Let me know if you guys would like me to log this cycle when the time comes. I will also log each and every day's lifts PRs and general notes, but if that would be preferred to be entered on a separate training exclusive thread let me know so I can plan ahead. Cheers fellas

  2. Subbed bro. Look forward to watching the transition from recovery (hopefully speedy) to packing some muscle back on.

    Looks good bro! Are you on any GH right now to help facilitate healing?

    No I am not, cannot afford that stuff. Well I can't afford the stuff I'd trust to use lol. Will be using TB500 and BPC157 tho once I finish up my research on it.

    I used tb-500 and bpc. Load tb at like 5-10mg then stay on like 5mg weekly. I used for my bicep tendonitis. bpc i believe i shot 1mg a day im my bicep heads split morning and night. Now this wasn’t for a torn muscle but just sharing my experience if you want an anecdotal. I would try and get HGH too but unfortunely money is a factor

    Wellness Update
    First day back, felt great! The week off did me some good. Gained no weight at all and lost no size, thanks to that tren and genetics lol. Also thanks to my girlfriend, we've been taking multiple cardio sessions every night...... ya know to make sure I dont waste those calories;). All swelling is gone, still have some gnarly bruising and tightness but I let my body rest and do its thing for the first week. I will begin rehab sessions at a highly respected center that repaired a world record Bench presser's fully torn Pec and after that he went and set a new record. I will continue to keep you guys updated. May attempt an arm workout soon.

    Notes:
    Great day, starting with low volume work as I am no longer capable of keeping up with that work load. I'm sure as I get back into the same routine I will gain weight. So far I've kept fat off of my problem areas which is great. Yesterday I ate an entire family size of lucky charms, cookies, gallon of milk on top of my normal food and still managed to lose a pound Seems I've truly lowered my body fat set point which is great, but I won't take it for granted lol

    I feel for you man I had a fascia tear in my pec took 14 weeks off and back to normal, it was a huge mind fuck not being able to train, but definitely a good learning experience. I suggest very light cable flies to stretch the muscle and bring back the range of motion, it certainly helped me. Goodluck on your recovery and upcoming cycle.

    Had originally planned to do more work on squats but obviously the stretched position my Pectoral was in began to make my Pectoral feel uncomfortable. But the loaded stretch was good for it. Forgot to mention my BPC-157 arrived and am taking 500mcg per day split into two dosages. Company also sent me ghrp-6 and cjc-1295 for free so I may toss it in for an added healing effect. Although I'm afraid of the appetite stimulation and increased prolactin risk associated with GHRP-6. I already have a ravenous appetite and do not want something to further empower it lol.

    Ramping up intensity/volume now that my carbs are higher therefore im in a better disposition to recover from more work.

    Macronutrients:
    Protein: 230g
    Carbs: 400g
    Fats: 30g
    Total: 2,800kcals

    Bodyweight these last three weeks of taking it easy has stabilized at 228-230. Keeping my lean healthy look and just going to continue to work on other weaknesses while I continue to rehab this Pectoral.

    Drew some inspiration from the man Dorian Yates for today's leg work. Solid stuff, will more than likely continue lifting this way for legs and back over this maintenance period.
