Here is Day 1 photo before starting
Sorry for getting a late start on this but this has been a crazy week. This new cycle I will be running 500 mg test cyp/ week, and mc's IGF1-LR3 at 60mcgs/ day mon-fri on workout days and taking sat and sun off. Plan to run the IGF for 6 weeks, and possibly adding in equi and tren in this cycle later on, but for now I want to test the results of the igf by itself. Presser was very kind enough to send this to me after my wife had cleaned out the fridge and threw my previous supply of igf away before I could even start.
A little background on me, I am 42 years old, have been lifting seriously for the last 15 years and up until a year and half ago been all natural. I have been cycling of and on (mostly on) just in the last year and a half.
chest - 44
thigh - R23 L24
calves - 14
Before starting, weight was 194.6 and body fat is 14% (a little high for me it's usually around 12%, but Just coming off the holidays I did eat a lot of pecan pie and sweets).
Day 1- CHEST AND SHOULDERS
nutrition - most days are consistent and usually are close to the same with the exception of the weekend of some slight variation.
Meal 1 - 2 scoops whey protein
Meal 2 - 4 eggs and 1 cup oatmeal or Naked Green Machine
Meal 3 - post workout- 3 scoops whey protein
Meal 4 - 2 grilled chicken breast sandwiches
Meal 5 - 3 packets of tuna with 1 cup brown rice
Meal 6 - 8 oz of steak or chicken with serving of vegetables and 1 cup brown rice
Meal 7 - if I'm still hungry
I'm going to try different combinations to see what works best for me as far as taking the IGF before or after working out, but for this week, they will all be taken about 30 min prior to working out. Since today was chest and shoulders, I injected 30mcgs in each pec. This was my first time using an insulin needle, all I've had to compare with is the 23 gauge needle I used for test and deca. Quite painless and very quick. I did experience a little soreness in my right pec at the injection site at the beginning of my workout, but it went away after about 30 minutes. Overall didn't notice anything different. It is still Day 1.
Flat bench - 225 5 sets of 6
incline - 205 5 sets of 6
flye machine - 175 5 sets of 6
cable crossovers - 42.5 5 sets of 6
Hammer strength shoulder press - 270 5 sets of 6
cable upright rows - 85 5 sets of 6
dumbbell side raises - 30's 5 sets of 6
rear delt machine - 95 5 sets of 6
This was my first week of heavy weight after going light for the last 2 months, so I usually start out with sets of 6 which doesn't produce a great pump. So I may switch things up a bit next week as far as rep ranges go to utilize the effects of the igf
Day 2 - BACK
Since I can't split the dose and inject my back, I did the whole 60mcgs in the abdomen. Again, no pain, and pumps were about what they usually are.
Deadlifts - 275 5 sets of 6
Lat pull downs - 200 5 sets of 6
Hammer strength rows - 270 5 sets of 6
T bar rows - 160 5 sets of 6
Reverse pull downs - 200 5 sets of 6
Nice my brother. You have a good log so far. Try pinning that igf in your biceps too. That's my go to for it.

DAY 3 - LEGS (otherwise known as HOLY CRAP THE PUMPS ARE REAL)
So I believe today was the day I felt the first real effects of this IGF. Since it was leg day (Wednesday at my gym is national leg day anyway) I decided to inject in the calves that is severely lagging body part for me. Splitting the dose 30 mcgs in each calf (it actually may have been 40 those lines are so tiny on insulin needles) imjecting was a piece of cake, and I'm starting to like it more than the bigger needles I have gotten used to. Okay, I haven't even made it from walking from my car to the locker room and I'm starting to feel it. I usually warm up a little on the treadmill before I do legs, and by the time I was on the treadmill, my calves were screaming. The best way to describe it is it felt like my calves were tight and sore as if I had killed them in the gym YESTERDAY. RIDICULOUS. I was walking funny and I haven't even start yet ha ha...needless to say I am excited about what's to come.

Good idea - I will try that next week!
DAY 5 - ARMS!! <--- Yes I like arm day
After experiencing what I did with calves, I was really eager to see how this would feel on a good arm day. I normally can get a pretty good pump, and I wasn't sure if I should take my normal dosing of pre workout or not, but I decided to anyway. That usually consists of an ephedra caffeine stack with a scoop of Old Jack. Of the 2 that I feel need it the most, I want more size in the triceps so that me where I went. And just like with calves, the pump was almost instantaneous. However this time with a slight difference. I only got a real intense pump and soreness in my right tricep, but not in my left. Wondering if I had injected in different spots. At any rate, I got a great arm workout in. AND calves are still really sore!

DAY 9 - Back
So for today I decided to pin the bi's for back day as Got Tren recommended. Great pump in the biceps they were sore the rest of the day. Shoulders are still incredibly sore. My body is starting to feel like the old days when. I had DOMS quite regularly. And even though I'm just the second week in, I feel like my shoulders are getting bigger.
deadlifts - 135x15 , 185x12 , 225x10 , 275x8 , 315x6

Hammer strength rows
Seated cable rows
DAY 10 - LEGS
OK- shoulders are STILL sore, biceps are sore, lats are sore, and since it's leg day I'm pinning calves again, and within minutes they are sore too. It feels great. Today is similar to last weeks arm day as I feel it mostly in my right calf and. It so much in my left. Not sure why that keeps happening. And I swear my calves look bigger (and sheesh they need it), but I want to hold off a little while longer to do measurements. I felt really strong today, and although it's just my second week back doing heavy weight, I felt like I could have gone much heavier.
Squats - 135x15 , 185x12 , 225x10 , 275x8 , 315x6 (yes the same thing I did for deadlifts)
Leg press - 450x12 , 540x10 , 630x8 , 720x6

Day - 12 ARMS
Today everything seems to be coming together and I'm looking tighter and leaner. Another progress pic, and although this is post workout with pump in full swing, I notice my shoulders and midsection leaning out.
Superset - Barbell curls with pressdowns 12 10 8 6 (tendinitis in my elbows is starting to come back with a vengeance now that I am back to doing some heavy weight again. Had been feeling better and deca previously made elbows feel
great, so hoping the igf will help as well. Had to modify a few tricep exercises in the meantime.)
supersets - dumbbell curls with dumbbell skullcrushers 12 10 8 6
supersets - preacher curls with overhead extensions
supersets - double cable curls with cable kickbacks
Looking great bro! Your arms actually look bigger than 16"
Fear No Man In This World... Nor the Next
Yeah I hear that but I think we need an article on IGF 1 lr3 and how best to induce incredible pumps by way of timing your igf with carbs and timing your carbs with gym
