As stated in a few previous posts I am planning on putting together a daily (hopefully) log detailing the next 12 week sarms cycle of LDG + S4 from esarms. I’ll will look to post experience whilst on cycle including updating various stats e.g. weight, bodyfat %, workouts, calorie intake and overall wellbeing and thoughts as I progress through the 12 weeks.

I’ll start by posting my current stats on the day the cycle began, today…

Age: 38
Weight: 84.5kg (186.3lbs)
Height: 188cm
Bodyfat %: 10-11% (will have measured on Saturday for accurate reading)

If you want to know more about my current training goals, expectations and reasons for running this cycle then have a quick read of my original post here…

https://www.elitefitness.com/forum/anabolic-steroids/quick-introduction-w-stats-1497965.html

I’ll post my current 1RM’s so that strength increases can be more accurately documented, I’m not as strong as I’d like as you’re about to see. I’ve sacrificed strength over the past few years in favour of muscular endurance.

Back Squat: 125kg (275lbs)
Deadlift: 170kg (375lbs)
Strict Press: 62.5kg (138lbs)
Bench Press: 93kg (205lbs)
Weighted Chin-Up: BW+40kg (88lbs)
Power Clean: 105kg (231lbs)
Snatch: 75kg (165lbs)
Clean & Jerk: 93kg (205lbs)
1k Row: 3:15


Day 1:

Blood work done at 5:30am.
LDG - 10mg @ 5:45am
S4 - 25mg @ 5:45am, 25mg @ 11:30am
M1 MK – 3caps @ 5:45am, 1cap @ 8:30am, 1cap @ 13:00, 2caps @ 17:30.

Once I had completed blood work and taken the above doses of LDG, S4 and M1 MK I went to the gym to get my workout in for the day. 6am – 7:15am on a Wednesday is my HIIT cardio day. I felt really good in the gym and was happy with my workout, probably a placebo effect from knowing it’s the first day of a new cycle, kinda gives you a little extra motivation. I've had a headache most of the after post second S4 dose but this could be down to dehydration as I haven't managed to drink as much water as I normally do today. I’ve been eating around 3800-4000 cals a day for the past 2 months, I’ve decided to scale that back to around 3500 cals and keep them as clean as possible, aiming to hit around 220g of protein a day. I’ll post a typical days diet in a few days. Overall feeling really positive about the upcoming 12 weeks, my motivation for training has never been lacking and with two weeks in Aruba to look forward to in September my diet will be on point ready to get that beach body in the best possible shape.

Day 2:

LDG - 10mg @ 5:45am
S4 - 25mg @ 5:45am, 25mg @ 11:30am
M1 MK – 3caps @ 5:45am, 1cap @ 11:20am, 1cap @ 13:30, 2caps @ 17:30.

So the headache I got yesterday afternoon just got worse as the evening went on. Struggled to fall asleep and woke up today with it still there. Managed to pick up some paracetamol on my way to the gym and that seemed to do the trick. Headaches came on again post 2nd S4 dose so again I used the same over the counter painkillers. I’ve read that one of the main side effects with LDG and S4 can be headaches in the early stages, hopefully they don’t hang around.

Again I felt good in the gym this morning, wouldn’t say I’m feeling any stronger but it’s only day two so not really expecting that yet.

Day 3:

LDG - 10mg @ 5:45am
S4 - 25mg @ 5:45am, 25mg @ 11:30am
M1 MK – 3caps @ 5:45am, 1cap @ 9:30am, 1cap @ 14:00, 2caps @ 18:00

PRE CYCLE BLOODWORK RESULTS ARE IN!

Below are some of the numbers from my pre-cycle bloodwork that I ran before beginning my cycle. Numbers aren’t great, would be great to get other people opinions who have history of running bloodwork pre/mid/post cycle…

FSH – 3.28 IU/L
LH – 5.55 IU/L
Oestradiol – 36.6 pmol/L
Testosterone – 262.2 ng/dL
Free Test – 5.25 ng/dL
Free Androgen Index – 33.3 Ratio
Prolactin – 554 mU/L
DHEA – 4.37 umol/L
SHBG – 787.4 ng/dL
Albumin – 49.7 g/L

My testosterone seems to be low pre-cycle as well as my free testosterone which seems really low!

Day 4:

LDG - 10mg @ 7:45am
S4 - 25mg @ 7:45am, 25mg @ 12:45am
M1 MK – 3caps @ 7:30am, 1cap @ 12:45am, 1cap @ 16:15, 2caps @ 18:30

Bodyfat % - 7.5%

I train later on a Saturday so dosed a few hours later than normal. I also had my skinfold measurements taken and was quite surprised at the results. I was overestimating my bodyfat % when I stated I thought I was in the 10-12% range but I didn’t expect to be as low as 7.5%! I knew I was lean but you never really know until you’re measured. I think I’ll need to re-evaluate my calorie intake reducing and head back towards 4000cals a day.

I felt a little more vascular today after leaving the gym. I did a combination of squats and back work with a 35min cardio session thrown in at the end. The weather was great here today so we got to run outside, love those workouts! Still no noticeable difference in anyway from the stack but its still early days.

Day 5:

LDG - 10mg @ 10:45am
S4 - 25mg @ 10:45am, 25mg @ 14:45am
M1 MK – 3caps @ 10:30am, 1cap @ 12:30am, 1cap @ 15:20, 2caps @ 18:30

Sundays are my rest day so no gym today. Nothing new to report other than the small effects I’ve been experiencing are most likely down to the placebo effect you get when starting a new cycle. I’m still concerned about my testosterone levels, especially my free testosterone. Hoping these don’t stunt my current cycle. Looking forward to getting back in the gym tomorrow morning.

you dont have high shbg though bro... proviron lowers shbg to free up bound testosterone but it wouldnt appear that your shbg is causing an issue

Day 6:

LDG - 10mg @ 5:45am
S4 - 25mg @ 5:45am, 25mg @ 11:15am
M1 MK – 3caps @ 5:30am, 1cap @ 08:30am, 1cap @ 13:00, 2caps @ 18:30

Weight – 84.4kg (186.1lbs)

Started my new lifting macrocycle today, really looking forward to what I can do with this alongside the LDG and S4. I’ll update progress on lifting numbers etc as they happen. Jumped on the scales this morning and there hasn’t really been any change in the previous five days but considering I’d lowered my calories that’s a good thing. I’ve decided to push my daily calories back up to 4000 a day for the next 2-3 weeks. I’m 7.5% bodyfat so sacrificing a percent or two in order to gain some size wouldn’t be the end of the world. Headaches seem to have gone. I’ll look at posting my average daily food intake in the next few days.

Day 9:

LDG - 10mg @ 5:45am
S4 - 25mg @ 5:45am, 25mg @ 11:15am
M1 MK – 3caps @ 5:30am, 1cap @ 08:30am, 1cap @ 13:00, 2caps @ 18:30

Dosed at the normal time this morning and felt super motivated on the drive to the gym. Pharoah Monche cranked WAY UP! Today was a repeat of Mondays chest and back workout. I’m hitting upper body muscle groups twice a week with my new program, something I haven’t done for many years. This way I’m hoping to see a clearer progression week to week. Sticking in the 10-12 rep range x 4, I progressed from Monday hitting all sets at 12 reps or increasing the weight from hitting 12 on Monday.

Bench Press
Monday - 12, 11, 10 @ 70kg (155lbs), 5 @ 75kg (165lbs)
Thursday – 12, 12, 12 @ 70kg (155lbs), 6 @ 75kg (165lbs)

Incline DB Press
Monday – 3 x 12 @ 22.5kg (50lbs), 6 @ 25kg (55lbs)
Thursday 3 x 12 @ 25kg (55lbs), 6 @ 27.5kg (61lbs)

Cable Pull Overs
Monday – 3 x 12 @ 42.5kg (93lbs), 6 @ 47.5kg (105lbs)
Thursday – 3 x 12 @ 47.5kg (105lbs), 6 @ 50kg (110lbs)

Pendlay Row
Monday – 3 x 12 @ 70kg (154lbs)
Thursday – 3 x 12 @ 75kg (165lbs)

Happy with the small progression. I had a spotter today which I didn’t on Monday and although he wasn’t needed its always a confidence boost when you’re lifting so that could account for the increase.

*Increases from Tuesdays workout

Felt good again today in the gym, feel like I’ve got more in the tank with most lifts. I’ve put together a 12 week program to run alongside my cycle. Looking at making steady progression throughout. Unfortunately I cannot post progress pictures due to the nature of my work, I’ve got quite a few distinguishable tattoos so staying incognito would be too difficult.
