COMMENTS: Back from week off. 3rd week into PCT now so I'll report how strength is holding up. I'd say that for the most part I have the same strength as I left off in my cycle. Maybe less by 5lbs MAX or 1 rep in some lifts, but I'd say thats positive news. I haven't weighed myself in the last couple days, but I think I'm around ~185. So I've dropped a couple pounds once I got off hdrol (most likely water retention), but I'm still same strength, so thats good. Definately look leaner now than I was during the cycle.
It's also nice to have a workout without back pumps. So far so good. No noticable sides from nolva. I've noticed that lethargy has decreased. Usually when I come back from my morning classes I'd go staright back to sleep for 3 hours, wake up, feel even more tired and force myself to get up. Wasn't an issue today at all. Also I'm eating less. Apetite has gone down significantly ever since I stopped h-drol. It used to be every 2 hours I'd feel starved. Now not so much, so calorie intake has decreased a bit too.

All in all, so far so good. Can't wait to be done with PCT and call it a cycle and begin summer cut!

Comments: Have definitely leaned out a little this week. The water I was holding on-cycle is probably all gone now. I can see the outline of a 4-pack lol. Can't wait to hit up the gym Monday. Hopefully most of strength is on the same level as pre-PCT. Halfway through PCT now. Starting Monday nolva will be 10mg. Will do that for 2 weeks hopefully and then call it a cycle. No noticeable sides on nolva. Everything seems good so far.

Week 8 - Day 3

Barbell Bench Press
Barx12 | 135lbsx8 | 155lbsx5 | 185lbs3 | 205lbsx1 | 225lbsx1 | 235lbsx1 | 250lbsx1

+ Did some other tricep work but didn't record.

COMMENTS: O.M.G. 250!!!!! So happy. Pre-cycle max was 205, so 45lbs increase!! On bench!! On a "weak" ph!! I still can't believe I put it up! Didn't bother trying for more cause Im sure it was my max (maybe if I really really tried/pumped myself up 255, but no point). I still find it funny how usually on a cycle, deads go up the most, then squats, then bench, yet for me its the exact opposite. oh well, bench needed a boost after going up 5lbs in 6+ months last year. FeelsAwesomeMan!

COMMENTS: Maxed out on squats. Was aiming for 2 45's and a 25 (275 total). But 265 felt too heavy/ my max. Not bad though. Thats a 40lb gain over my pre-hdrol max. First day of nolva... My God, not that I know what piss tastes like, but if I were to know, I would bet thats what nolva tastes like. Wasn't expecting it to taste like pepsi or anything, but neither was I expecting it to leave a bitter aftertaste that went away after 3 bottles of water lol.
