Epi Elite (Epistane Clone)

Tuesday, October 21st, 2014

I started a cycle Epi Elite (Epistane Clone) of on August 31st and will be taking my last cap in a few hours. I though I’d post a review for those interested. Dosing was 30/45/60/60. I was hesitant to go to 60mg, but people told me to listen to my body and if I had no sides then go for it.

Thankfully, I really had no negative sides to speak of the whole time. No blood pressure issues, no hair loss, and strong libido all through cycle. I had very minor calf pumps a few times on the Stairmaster and only had noticeable back pumps twice, but they were never enough to impact my workout. I kept an eye on my boys and noticed no significant change in size throughout the cycle.

For support supplements I used N2 Guard (7 caps a day) and Super Cissus RX (6 to 8 caps a day). My joints held up well the whole time. I only started to have a little pain in my elbow & wrist joints and some tendons in the middle of this week. I also used HCGenerate (5 caps a day) starting in week two.

Diet was a totally clean six meals a day – high protein and plenty of healthy fats, with carbs coming in the form of a grapefruit at breakfast and oats with pre and post workout meals.

Strength increases were real nice. They really became noticeable around day 10 and kept going up from there. I was setting PRs on virtually every exercise at each workout. The big core lifts went up nicely – 20 pounds on deadlift, around 20 on bench, and not sure on squats since a few pages of workout logs went missing. I also had a 25 pound increase on Smith behind the neck presses. Today I was doing curls and pushdowns with the full stack on the cable-pulley setup.

And now for the numbers everyone wants to know. I started at 187.6 pounds and weighed in this afternoon at 198.2, a little over a 10 pound gain. My goal was 200 but I still consider this a success since I came very close and strength shot up nicely. I started a slow lean bulk in September at a shredded 166 and my long term goal was 200 with abs and I’ve pretty much met that goal, partially thanks to Epi Elite (Epistane Clone). Lean bulking is so the way to go – I’ve put on 32 pounds since September and I’m still wearing the same size khakis. I have a comprehensive post cycle therapy lined up with a SERM and other stuff so I’m hoping to add a little bit more over the next few weeks.

I ended up with 4 weeks of Epi Elite (Epistane Clone) (along side CEL’s Stano-Drol for the duration at 450mg and then 600mg). As could be expected, it was pretty slow to start off at 30mg, and at 45mg I couldn’t really visually notice much, but I did take notice on the day I did about 8 sets of incline bench press after a full delt workout and nearly Personal Record’ed on a ~2,500 cal/day diet compared to the ~4,500 cal/day diet I was looking at when I set the Personal Record this summer.

Then, at 60mg I really enjoyed it (note that CEL’s H-Drol was now in play at 50mg, too). From a scientific standpoint for determining things, I didn’t do the best job (though admittedly that was not my top priority here). This was my first hormonal run of any kind and I’d like to call it successful, though it wasn’t quite as much as I had expected.

This is a product that I will definitely run again and likely at a higher dose (60mg right out the gate and maybe even 75mg). Since it was my first run, I was very cautious. I didn’t notice any negative sides from this at all (aside from some initial acne, which extra scrubbing with the loofah seemed to take care of).

Strength is an area where this really shined. I didn’t notice much for size (obviously), since I was in caloric deficit, but it does react interestingly. When I was just about maintenance, I was packing on pounds pretty quickly and eating very clean. It seems to really love the carbs and add on weight quickly when they are in play.

I look forward to running this again in the future at a higher dosage and possibly when attempting to bulk.

All in all I was pleased with Epi Elite (Epistane Clone), my first experience with a DS. I definitely recommend giving it a shot if you’re interested.

Brain Health

Friday, January 1st, 2010

Whenever we study and learn, several things happen in our brain: new cells generate, new connections are created between cells, and existing connections between certain cells are strengthened or removed. Studies show that stimulating environment and the presence of beta-endorphin (the good mood hormone) lead to good cell growth in our brains. The Neurological Foundation of New Zealand says these factors affect brain health:

Regular physical exercise. This protects the brain and the way it processes information. Exercise boosts levels of brain-protective chemicals and reduces stress.

Adequate sleep. A good night’s sleep recharges the brain and allows the body to rest and heal. Our brain consolidates memories while we sleep. Inadequate sleep affects the way our brain cells function and can increase the risk of stroke and depression. About seven to nine hours of sleep a night is ideal.

Balanced diet. Your diet should be low in cholesterol and saturated fat. Studies show that foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids (e.g., fish) are good for the brain.

Social connections. Friendships and social networks are important as we age. Good mood hormones help us create new brain cells and keep them healthy.

Mental workout. Use it or lose it! Keeping the brain active and challenged increases its vitality, generates new brain cells, and bolsters connections and reserves.

A Different Approach to Getting Fit

Sunday, July 5th, 2009

Many weight-loss programs propose changes in the propositions of the three main food groups–proteins, fats and carbohydrates. How effective are these programs? The Harvard School of Public Health in Boston, Massachusetts, placed 811 overweight adults on four different diets over a two-year period. The diets contained varying percentage of fat, protein, and carbohydrate.

After six months, all four diet groups averaged a six-kilogram weight loss, or 7 percent of their original weight, which ever diet they were on. All again began to regain weight after 12 months. After two years, the average weight loss was about four kilograms for all groups. Earlier studies had claimed that higher protein intake reduced appetite and sustained muscle mass better during weight loss. The Harvard researchers’ conclusion: A diet program’s benefits result from the degree to which people stick with them, not from any specified energy reduction formula.
