Description, concerns and expectations
Time for my summer bulk. If I can hit 225lbs at the end of this bulk then I'll look at nationals and hopefully my pro card for next summer. If I'm not happy with the weight, then another year of bulking. Probably wondering why primo for a bulk?? Well I was impressed with the lean mass that it put on me while in a slight cal deficit (nearly impossible) that I want to see what it can do for lean mass in a cal surplus. It will also be interesting to compare the results of this cycle to my last cycle. Really the only difference here is I'll be swapping out the 1-TC and replacing with primo (well, a few other ones but close enough). Gained 25lbs last cycle (only dropped 5lbs since then) so will be interesting to see what comes from this one.
My diet strategy for this cycle will be cyclic bulking.
My last cycle was a constant cal surplus but given the nature of primo and building lbm while in a deficit, I'll implement the cyclic approach and see if I can actually lose some bodyfat in the process. Guess you might term this a recomp, but let's just stick with calling it a bulk for now. I am hoping that the week i drop cals will reset insulin sensitivity and actually provide for accelerated anabolism/nutrient partitioning during the bulking phase (turbo-charging the bulking phase). I'll be monitoring body composition weekly to keep track of progress and to adjust diet accordingly. This will also let me know when to implement a mini-cut to reset insulin sensitivity.
Going to kick things off with the adrol right away for just the first couple of weeks to get things banging right away then I'll finish the cycle with tbol at the end. A note on the sust: the Dragon pharm sust is basically 300mg of test e/c and 50mg prop. Not true sust blend but I'll make it work. I shouldn't need to use any AI with my test just slightly above trt dose. Provi should help a bit with that also. I just feel better by running my test low and not having to use an ai. Don't really know how to explain it other than my body just feels more crisp and energized without outrageous test levels. Doesn't appear to hamper gains either since for half of my cycle last time I was running zero test and still put on 25lbs. If gains appear to be coming on strong yet, I'll continue the cycle out to 16 wks.
Gear I'll be using:
Primo and Bold Cyp Primo of the gods
Dragon Sust Euroking
Provi/tbol (Geneza) Naps
