My cycles were from Purus labs. A top notch co. with very good and pure products. The first time was epol alone and the second was halovar and epol staggered. The gains I made were unreal. i hadn't done bb bench in about 12 years sinc I workout alone. I tried 4 weeks into my 6 week cycle. I got 255x2 and at 275 I layed it on my chest. 2 weeks later on my second chest workout of the week i hit 335x1.
My strength stayed longer this time but started to really fall off about 5 weeks into my pct. I am still much further ahead then if I had not done a ph all year though. I feel the muscle mass is mostly still there but my body changed as well. On cycle I could literally see the fat disappear and my love handles shrink even though I ws gaining weight. As I started losing the weight they began coming back even though my weighty was less. My crappy diet did not help. I should have benn pounding down the protein and not so much fat and carbs.
