    cheers mate. so my creatine hcl arrived couple weeks ago and have since stabilised at around 64.5kg, so i know the product is doing something i guess. with diet at present being so simple and consistent, it's really easy to now trial different supplements to find out what affects me / how and whether it's worth throwing hard earned money at it. reintroduced benching in to my routine, though admittedly still haven't settled on a consistent program yet. currently haven't tested 1 RM yet but easy 3 sets of 3 reps for 70kg last session.. it feels a whole lot easier than i remember it so i guess there is a decent transfer in strength from the calisthenics stuff i'm doing couple of guys were mentioning an interesting strength scale on FB, not sure if skeletor/quadzilla still visit these forums but i thought that was a fairly interesting topic... if anyones interested then the link is https://www.strongerbyscience.com/objective-strength-standards/ haven't got any hard deadlines for these goals in mind but wouldn't mind having something quantitative to progress towards with the big 3 so may end up using that..., i always ultimately wanted to end up with a 100kg bench which is both very close but very far away ;) been ignoring lower body training a fair bit lately..
  7. sarmsnz.co.nz review??

    same question here really. maybe its not such a big risk in nz/aus as it is shown to be on US forums, who knows.. probably just paranoid lol, getting an outright fake product doesn't concern me nearly as much as something that has other crap with side effects i'm not equipped to manage and didn't sign up for. wish we could go straight to docs for prescription on research drugs like this, sadly it seems like they pulled the pin on ostarin all together because certain aspects of continuing the study were unable to be funded. no ones saying you're misleading anyone mate and thanks for sharing your experienece so far. same goes for @Sheepdog. plenty of aas logs on this site, would be keen to see more sarms logs too. keep posting / contributing, all the questions being asked are with a healthy layer of speculation that every normal human being should have, too dangerous to believe everything you read online without questioning lol. or maybe i've just become too cynical, idk :)

    kinda glad i take regular progress pics and keep them aside regardless of if i feel im making much progress or not lol. i eat total less calories than when i was at my craziest bulk but funny enough due to the braces situation there is no more snacks, no more junk food at all (apart from ice cream desserts when i feel like im gonna crash). seem to be making the most progress and generally feeling better than ever, i finally get the hype about clean eating lol. introduced tuna in to diet lately also and just further mash it down with fork before i swallow it. looking for further meat ideas but haven't yet researched enough about what is and isn't highly bioavailable when there is lack of chewing/enzymes from saliva etc. here is 1 yr comparison from last year and now. that vascularity / abs popping out a bit seems to have really come in strong from after a week of arginine. i highly recommend anyone who hasn't tried that supp to give it a go, pretty crazy but i guess you may have to be already slightly lean before it shows like that? 30 may 2017 62.5kg 25 april 2018 60.5kg back 28 april 62kg. lot any traces of the ol thickness but width coming back in quick got deadlifts / abs session coming up later today. my 'porta bars' arrived couple days ago not sure how i'll incorporate those in to my training routine now that i think about it.
  9. sarmsnz.co.nz review??

    Would be interesting to see more people log use of these, though not sure if would see much of that on this site as the prices seem more expensive than AAS I thought both the alternate places you mentioned are suppliers busted for selling prohormones for sarms haha , peope are pretty rightful to approach with caution
  10. sarmsnz.co.nz review??

    i don't want to come out as accusatory , just questioning the legitimacy of those claims. all but one of the accounts that have posted here are new, which is not necessarily anything against someones credibility but given it's a new company, expensive products with potential to not be as legit as claimed i kinda feel it necessary to not take anything mentioned here at face value. would be interested to compare IPs of some of the posters here but don't have access to that side of things ofcourse. @Pseudonym is this potential shill thread? in terms of legitimacy of actual sarms, the research seems to all be quite limited and claims of 'no sides' are made based on the research, but for example research says ostarin (mk-2866) at 3mg/day did cause some shutdown yet recommended dosage for recreational purposes is stated to be 25mg/day (which has no clinical trials or other supporting evidence backing up side effects) and claimed that this apparently has no shutdown? it's a higher dose so i'm not sure how that works, unless my maths / logic is off. also even though it's not strictly illegal (unregulated research drugs), this does not mean it's professionally produced and that you're getting some pharma quality product. there is much info out there showing other companies overseas have spiked their sarms with prohormones and users experienced all kinds of unexpected side effects (few of the big names in US are getting sued for this right now). i'm not saying that is the case here nor am i trying to slander the company in question but if you're looking at taking sarms because you think they might be safer than anabolic steroids, you should go in to it knowing that you're still taking on significant risk especially because the long term side effects are as yet completely unknown. not saying this to put you off , as with anything you gotta go in to it knowing what you're getting yourself in to. @gazza is someone whose word is more trustworthy among the posters so far on this thread and sounds like he has either personal knowledge of this or knows people who have really used sarms, care to share?
  11. back to the grind

    went and trained yesterday with a mate. ended up being in gym lot longer than im generally comfortable with but i guess it was what was needed to snap out of recent 'going through the motions' type training. feeling sore af on back / chest, basically super high volume on bench / rows / pullups/dips. remembered my weight drop is not fair comparison in training this time around due to always taking creatine in past which no doubt adds extra 2-3kg atleast. ordered creactor as was on sale 120 servings @ $29. my previous go to was creacore but can't seem to find that anymore, i know most ppl say creatine mono but from my own experience i seem to not notice anything from mono where as i do with hcl, or atleast it is so with the default servings. rest of current 'supplementation' stack is : mornings ; supermarket random branded 1 a day mens multi, vitamin c, iron tabs, l-arginine (just started on this stuff last week, absolutely love it lol, looking and feeling full/pumped through the day with this). nights ; zma, vit d3, fish oil pre workout ; some unbranded pre workout supp from wheydeals.co.nz (i beleive this is sister site of nz muscle? ) @ 1 scoop + 1-2 tabs of larginine. i use ans n-mass lately for the extra cals , was hoping to be on real foods by now but yeh teeth haven't moved enough to remove bite stoppers. this product has some prioritary nootropic that works proper well to make me hungry, its called 'appellin' . got me started on the idea of researching further in to said nootropics to see if i can just purchase that active ingredient that has this effect as can imagine it would be super useful for bulk when i can eat again.
  12. sarmsnz.co.nz review??

    hmmm how can you say so soon. didn't you just say you received your goods on sunday. what are these results that confirm the product is legit already? what exactly is your history with sarms in general and how did you come to know about the links between above mentioned supplement companies?

    [edit] deleted comment cos not meant to be a thread with rants or crap like in old thread. just lifting / progress.
  14. back to the grind

    woops fell off the wagon with my log again. not that my training history is in high demand but here it is anyway :P still training but i find myself just going in and doing whatever i feel like, way less discipline since i haven't committed to any program. been taking an interest in more of calisthenics since was experiencing far too many long term pains on lower body with power lifting. i should eventually settle on a structured program since haven't made any real progressions outside of the basics. been contemplating building a proper pullup bar in backyard, one thats fixed with concrete not shaky station like i made last time. kinda keen to get in to smashing more bodyweight strength work. diet weight has dropped down a bit but my latest excuse out of my bucket of many excuses is that i got bite stoppers with my braces (which will remain for atleast another 2 months before i can eat whole foods) so my teeth don't close hence can only have food that can be swallowed and digested easily without chewing etc. currently floating between 60.75-62.5 kg on gym scales. even though i don't eat as much as i should for how active i am, what i eat is 95% quality meals (mashed potatoes and scrambled eggs + greek yoghurt several times a day with no crap snacks making up empty cals) so i feel super energetic most of the time and probably can credit this back to being able to maintain strength in some areas. deadlifts i still seem to be able to deadlift quite easily compared to how it used to be when i was regularly training them.180kg is not heaps but right now is still 3x my bodyweight so in that regard i can sleep at night. i dunno what people in gym are doing but those new barbells are already without knurling and collars barely spin so finding less desirable to deadlift lately due to equipment /rant. bench barely been doing this, dunno why but always was my least favourite exercise. strangely enough though since i stopped benching regularly, doing dips doesn't feel painful any more so i am smashing more of those than ever before. i wanna be able to do atleast holding planche, if not planche pushups so i will probably have to include bench in my routine again soon. back i seem to get stronger in this area without even training back that much.. can row as much now as i did when i was in bulk mode couple yrs ago and i can pretty easily do my first set of strict pullups with 20-25 reps, with drop set type workout like this: wide grip 20-25, 15-20, 12-15, switch to narrow grip: 10, 10, 10. probably something to do with mind muscle connection improving significantly in this area hence it's so much easier to do. also seem to be able to buffer lactic acid way better than before, haven't been taking any supplment for that and not sure if related to clean diet or something? squats inexistant. i kept triggering strong hip pains so i shy away from these now hence prob never get back in to proper powerlifting. pretty sure it's nothing major and all within my ability to fix as physios pointed out in past, i just need to be more proactive with hip strengthening / mobility work but since i find it boring i could never be consistent enough long term to reap the benefits.
