Okay here’s mine. I’m sitting exactly at 200 as of this morning. I got 8 weeks left on this blast of dhb and test then 6 weeks of cruising before my cut blast. Not the best timing for a contest since I’m mid bulk and just continuing to bulk haha progress is much easier seen on a cut, but hoping to post up and get some more people to follow. I would say my goal is to add another 15-20 lbs and if somehow possible still have slightly visible abs haha, but they’re already almost gone so idk about that haha.
Here is my scale pic for the contest. I was exactly 200 this morning but I forgot to take a pic so I could only take one tonight after eating all day so I was clearly heavier than when I normally weigh first thing in the am after pissin
Okay here is a scale pic in the morning right after waking, no food, and after peeing for my official weight to start the contest 20

201.2 today. Full rest day for me. Can’t wait to get this npp. Hopefully late next week. Should be able to get in about 6 weeks of it before cruising.
Is UK on vacation… The USA part is all weird. I believe it says closed til 1/11/17, but is it 11/11?
I am guessing that meant November 1st bro. I don’t really rep for him anymore, but I just checked out the site and I think it’s how they do their dates across the pond. Day then month. You should be good to go.
I am trying to spread it around, I guess you opened it up… Why not rep for them? OK, I see with the date. I mean I understand if you don’t want to be negative.
It was no bad reason that I stopped repping. He just is not on my home forum anymore and didn’t need me here cuz he hasn’t had much activity. Pro M is his main forum and he has a rep there. So I still try to help out if I see a question here on his stuff, just not officially repping.
Morning guys! 201.2 again. I have officially started the Var. Hopefully my bloods I get back next week aren’t too bad haha. I’ll be doing 20mg am and then 30mg preworkout. They’re the 10mg tabs. I’m thinking my npp should be here later next week for me to start. I wanna run it 6 weeks so hoping I can get it by Thursday cuz that would give me exactly 6 weeks until I leave to go home for Xmas and that’s when I plan to start my cruise so I don’t have to bring stuff with me but my test.
Hitting fasted cardio now, then work, then back attack tonight.
200 this morning. Not happy. Skipping my 25 min fasted cardio. THis weight is pissing me off. Legs later today. That’s all.!
Do you think its the cardio or maybe a hydration issue?
I would definitely think cardio first also but how is your hydration regimen?
Hydration? I drink a ton. Almost 2 gallons a day. Def not lacking in water.
Well might be pissed about my weight not moving but I just had one hell of a leg day!! PR on squat at 375x6 twice, and then pretty much fully stacked the leg Press, seated leg curl and lying leg curl.
