So you’re looking to start your first prohormone cycle? I bet you’ve been doing hours and hours of research to find the perfect prohormone for your first cycle to pump you up like Kali Muscle. You probably know half as much as you think you know. But it’s ok. We were all there at one point. Let’s turn that around.
Learn How To Workout
For me, this is probably the hardest part of the equation. Most people find that dieting is the hard part, but years of ridiculously strict dieting have brainwashed me into a bland food munching robot. Anywho. Check out my Introduction training series of articles for a few tips and tricks that I’ve learned over the past few years. No matter what philosophy you have, whether it be moving weight or feeling the weight, always make sure your intensity is at its highest. If you’re resting for more than a minute, it’s too long. Shorten up your rest period and get to work! Also, if you don’t know to do a specific movement, google it. There are hundreds of videos online for you to get the gist of the movement.
Probably the most misunderstood concept in the fitness community. “Oh, but I’m so stuffed all the time and I’m eating 2800 calories a day.” This is the reason you’re not gaining muscle. Boost that to up to 3500-4000 calories a day, especially if you’re going to be using a prohormone. If you’re full at such a low-calorie intake, revise your choice of food for more calorie-dense food or start force-feeding until your body gets used to that volume of food. It’s tough, but nothing worth doing is easy.
On the flip side, for cutting don’t restrict your calories so much. The goal is fat loss, not weight loss. So a nice steady slow cut will help you preserve muscle to get you chiseled looking like a Greek god. Take photos once a week on the same day, right after you get out of bed and before you eat. Compare these week to week and you will get a better idea of how your body is transitioning, to either leaner or chunkier.
Sleep Like A Baby: Get your sleep wherever you can!
Every time you have a workout and the next day or two you become sore you think to yourself, “Man, I’m gonna build so much muscle.” You’re wrong. Your ability to build muscle is only as good as your ability to recover from your workout. And that means resting! Growth hormones are released at higher rates during sleep than at any other time of the day. So it is very important that you get between 7-9 hours of sleep every night.
Building a perfect wall is a daunting task. Much like building the perfect body. Instead, focus on laying a perfect brick every single day. This means sticking to your diet, getting every meal in, hitting the weights hard, and getting into bed on time. Every day. That’s the perfect brick you’re aiming for. Even at the end of your first cycle using a prohormone, you would not have built a perfect wall, but you’ll be a couple of dozen bricks closer.
