TRN-X Final Week

I'm finishing up my final week. Its been an up and down journey through my first cycle of this stuff. I haven't had a decent work out in about a week and a half. Lots of trauma in the personal life compounded with getting laid off last Tuesday has really thrown a kink in the mix. I'm up to about 125 lbs. Noticeable size difference in my arms and chest. I will continue with the protien and possibly throw in a weight gainer through my PCT and off month. Then go back with TRN-X and Magnadrol stack when I got back into a cycle.

Dude, taking this stuff while you're not lifting is not the best way to throw away your money.

Really? I'm actually rather satisfied with the gains. This is the most weight I've been able to put on since my freshman year of high school, about 10 years ago. I hit the gym pretty solid for about a week, then came down with bronchitis, spent last week job hunting and handling a death in the family. Sometimes extenuating circumstances get in the way of our plans.

I'm glad that you're pleased, but if I were not lifting, I would not be taking a pro hormone, and vice versa.

I wish there was a way to compare two people, same bf, same food intake, same workouts...on this stuff and off of it.
People would find out...hard work and staying dedicated is what is producing most of the results, not some "wonder drug".

I disagree to a point. Sure the hard work is doing it's job, but there's no doubt that the prohormones are giving a boost. It's like saying, "I wish that guy doing the Winny/Decca would compare to someone not using, with the same size, bf, ect..."

It's definately a performance enhancer. But to take a months worth of a prohormone and workout one week out of that month, and to never have worked out before that is just stupid. It's almost a huge waste of money. He's going to see almost no gains by the end of his PCT, because he's pretty much just sitting on water weight right now.

The biggest gain of the cycle came before I hit the Gym hard. I put on 8 lbs the before the first week was up. I didn't really get in the gym hard until the end of the first week, beginning of the second week. midway through the second week was when the Bronchitis hit, I then cut my dose back to hopefully help recovery from the illness, which I fought for the better part of two weeks. I'm in no way saying this stuff is a miriacle. I'm not even happy with the results because I didn't hit the gym like I should have. I could have probably hit the 130 mark had I worked out like I should have. I've maintained a steady work out with my dumbells and curl bar and some cardio, but not being able to vary/increase the weight its not been the same. I am a consistent 125 lbs, which is an 11 lb gain. When I get into the PCT and shed some water weight we will see what the true gains are.

Conversely, I'd be willing to bet that I could start a cycle of the same stuff for a month and quit working out during that time, and I'd be willing to bet that I'd lose quite a bit of strength and size.

There is no comparison...I look at all forms of PH, juice, or HGH as a form of cheating.
It's just how I see it and how I feel about it.
Then again, I ONLY train with people that are on the real stuff.
Otherwise, the rest of them cluckers just quit on me(no dedication).


No doubt that it "helps", but what I was getting at...is HOW MUCH it really helps compared to training the exact same way without it.
Let's say for example, you gain 30lbs on it, what's to say someone not taking wouldn't be able to gain 20lbs without it.
The drug didn't gain 30lbs on a cycle, it "helped" gain 10lbs.
Get what I'm saying or wishing we could test.

I know there is quite a bit of time lapse here. When I was in High School. I gained about 10 pounds my freshman year. Just barely getting into power lifting. The next three years of school I worked out practically year round and didn't gain a pound. Granted, at the time I didn't understand the importance of protien, but one would think that the workouts would have put on some size. I was the smallest guy in the group so I'm working out with guys in the 172-SHW weight classes, they were always pushing me.

The other thing is. Had I been hitting the gym every day, or left out the fact of my lack of workouts. People would be saying nice gains, way to go, and this and that.......

I think guys who start taking anything, without an already strong dedication to the gym are wasting their money. It's just silly to think someone who doesn't even have a gym membership is taking a PH.

For someone training like they should there is no comparison. If you gained 25lbs on it you may have gained 5 without it. If you gained 100lbs on your bench, you may have gained 15 without it.
That is a realistic comparison when we’re talking about a TRN-X/Magnadrol stack.

If you have a training partner about your strength, put him on this stack and he will blow you away know doubt.

I wouldnt say its just protein but eating healthy and large amounts as a whole. I have worked out plenty of times for 1-2months at a time and barely put anything on due to no diet, or change of eating habbits.

Since i started to really get into working out and be 100% dedicated 3-4 months ago, ive been eating 3200-4000 calories a day and working out 4-5 times a week.
4 Months ago i was 137 and i just weighed in yesterday at 158.

Back then these weren't 1-2 months of PL workouts. This was year round, we met through the summers in the weight room. It wasn't recreational lifting either. Granted, there were weeks before meets that I would have to live off crackers and salsa, but we are only talking a 1-2 lb variance in weight IF that much. I think the most I ever missed weight by was 1/2 lb

I agree with that wholeheartedly. Like putting slicks and skinnies on your daily driver, to only cruise it down the highway at 60mph. Sure, when you do get on it that once in a blue moon the traction is there, but it's not worth the risk of regulary running down the highway on 4" front tires. The possibility of something going wrong is ever present, and the pay off is hardly worth it.

As for PH and juice being cheating, I personally think that it is cheating in terms of comparing strength or athletic performace with that of someone that hasn't taken anything, but other than that it's simply another tool to be used to maximize one's efforts in the gym. I've taken PH's off and on throught out the 10+ years that I've trained, and I can honestly say that I'm not bigger that I would be had I stuck with protein and glutamine. That said, I never saw near the gains that some of these guys are posting up, for me it was a matter of adding 5lbs of bodyweight and a rep or three on my heavy sets, which mostly went away when I stopped taking the stuff. The key ingredients that have made me grow and get stronger over the years are consistent training, and adequate protein intake.

I don't have a gym membership... that doesn't mean I don't get a good workout for free at my apartment gym.

I hear what you're saying, and there's pics in this very board to show that it works well for a relatively trained individual, but in my experience these PH don't do near as much for someone like you or myself that is near their genetic potential.

I have yet to see an apartment gym capable of facilitating a full weightliftnig regimen. i'm sure it's great for you starting out, but if you don't outgrow it fairly quickly, you aren't doing something right.

Aaron, from everything I've been reading, these new PH's are nothing like some of the older, Andros, etc... Guys with long standing training schedules are seeing great achievements.

For someone like you who's dedication to the gym is already there, you're never going to put up the gains that guys with little or no time in the gym are.

You didn't follow too closely then. I updated once I got my Gym membership. Which was about 4 or 5 days after I started the stack I believe

Most of the good stuff comes from China and it gets cut like anything else.
There's a lot of trash out there.
You'd make crazy gains. The gains even on hear are weak from what i see in the gym everyday from this stuff. The raws are good from BOSC period.

I did follow, you went almost a week with no membership taking a prohormone. That's just dumb. Then you kept taking it when you were sick, and not able to lift. Dumb again. And then you kept taking it once you had family issues, and were unable to go to the gym. Again, dumb.

When was the last time you consistantly worked out? 3-4 times a week, for 3-6 months straight?

I'll buy the 20lb gain due to the stack, but don't be getting far-fetched.

That is a realistic comparison when we’re talking about a TRN-X/Magnadrol stack.

If you have a training partner about your strength, put him on this stack and he will blow you away know doubt.

At least 85lbs on bench. I've seen over 10 in my gym pass that. That's being under fetched really. Just get one of your gym rats to do a cycle and you'll shit yourself too.

When was the last time you consistantly worked out? 3-4 times a week, for 3-6 months straight?
Its been too long. As for the gains. I think that Greg predicted a body weight of 131 for the TRN/Magnadrol stack in the beginning. I'm not sure if he was referring to weight after the water weight was shed in the post cycle or just at the end of the stack. I didn't get the magnadrol. So I feel 125 is not bad. It has motivated me to continue working out and taking better care of myself. Showing me just exactly how bad I had let my body get. Which that in itself is well worth the money I spent on these products. As for not stopping the cycle while I was sick and was unable to find the time for the gym. All the stuff I read about the necessity of the post cycle and not to just stop taking this stuff. I figured it was better to maintain some sort of intake than totally stopping taking the stuff. Greg could probably shed more light on this. I consulted him when I started my z-pack for the bronchitis. I continued to work out while I was sick, though the workouts weren't as intense as they were.

You'd make crazy gains. The gains even on hear are weak from what i see in the gym everyday from this stuff. The raws are good from BOSC period.

I'm tempted to be the guinea pig, but funds are tight ATM. I've got Adam creepin' up on me weight wise, and I need to smack him back down in his place. What would that bulk cycle run for a month?

I've hit 405 twice (raw), so you're suggesting that I'd push up near 500 on this stuff?

I'm naturally just a skinny white guy. I am 6'1" and 183lbs. Long arms Bad for bench. I havent' maxed in a while but I only pushed up 205lbs whenI did a few months ago. I am on some protein and Creatine now as of this week. I bet if I did a stack I'd make some good gains. But then again it's cause I am a smaller frame guy and weak anyway. LOL

I have yet to see a bigger guy take a stack though from this board. A guy like the Raven is already pretty freaking ripped. No telling what gains he'll make. We need a control guiena pig to see what already strong guys do. I would assume it easier or more believable to go from 205 on bench to 300 than 400-500. But I don't know shit, I just know I have to see it to believe it.

Heck, I'd consider it worth it to get 405 for a solid 3 without a spot, or to gain a couple reps on my current 5-6 rep set. Gains just don't seem to happen this late in the game. Almost makes me wanna hit 35 already, and go for some of that legal HRT.

LOL, why...so you can look like a overgrown pig and scare girls away?

We got one of those guys(older Dr.) at our gym.
We call him "roadmap" because of all the veins pumpin out his legs.
It's funny because he's about 5/8 220lbs with about 5% bf and trains like a total GIRL!!!
It's funny what juice can do to a person, makes a chump look like a champ!

Ours only holds 5 plates on each side, but it's a joke.
Try 8 plated T-bar rows on for size.

I LOVE back, probably because I'm so strong at it.

Not sure, never really paid attention.
This guy is 40+, but looks 20.
He always trains with a younger looking guy(about the size of Raven) and his blond wife.
I think you workout at the 24hr in Euless, I workout at the one on Rufe Snow...so it's probably not him.

That's just it though, after that last cut I got down to 194lbs (5'10"), looked anemic, and still had a good 5lbs of fat to cut. I was nowhere near competition vascular, so there was plenty of water to cut as well. I'm not looking to be "monstrous", I just want to fill out my frame so that I have good aesthetics when I lean out. Given my wider frame, I'm thinking that around 200 lean would be about right. As I've gotten older I've lost the desire to get freakishly big, i just want to be athletic and strong. There is no "girlie" training here, I can and do sweat like the best of 'em.

Its probably better that way. This one is a joke.
The 24hr in Euless/bedford has some of the weirdest freakin' people ive ever witnessed.

We have a guy that wears 80's colored ripped-up tank tops with matching ankle weights and spendex.

We have this Indian guy that does some of the weirdest work outs, with "what the fuck is he doing" type of form. 200 pound frame from waist up and has leggs of a 12 year old girl.

The guy who runs on the treadmill for an hour then is literally soaking all over the equipement.

I can go on and on. Atleast i get a laugh when i work out.
