Raptors GW501516 Log « : March 16, 2017, 04:09:01 PM »
Greetings everyone

I felt compelled to create a log on my first GW501516  cycle.
GW501516 is a Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor delta or PPAR for short. It is also called Cardarine or Endurobol or succinctly GW.

I decided to use this "supplement" to increase my athletic performance, namely running endurance. Up until this time my best tool in my running supplement arsenal was an ECA stack prior to a race since it opens up airways and delays fatigue.

I will be using 20mg every day 30 minutes prior to exercise for 4 weeks.

My stats are
183-185lbs, 15% bf

Current Bench Max: 290lbs
Squat: 300lbs
Deadlift: ~350+
5k or 3 mile run time: ~28:00

Day 1:
Today was planned to be an arm day ending in cardio

I partially tore my bicep back in November and my arm still experiences alot of pain when I hit higher reps.
I was able to bust out 25 dead hang pull ups which severely aggravated my arm.
Then I moved to hammer curls and decided not to push through the pain.

Since this was my first day using GW, I decided to test out a cardio session on a treadmill since its icy outside.
Still hurting from my leg day earlier this week, I started out slow at 6mph and slowly ramped it up to 7.5mph over a mile and a half.
I realized my breathing was heavy but my body was completely satisfied with how much oxygen I was getting and I was not gassing out.
I paused the treadmill, stretched and decided to test out how good cardio is on GW. I started at 8mph and slowly ramped up to 9mph and as I was about to hit another 1.5 miles I kicked it into 10mph with phenomenal cardiovascular endurance pushing me through to an average of a 7:20 minute mile.

I was shocked that I was able to push through such a grueling cardio session with ease. I have not ran that effortlessly in a few years!
When I was done, I weighed 180 with 3lbs lost in sweat.

Cant wait to see how this progresses.

It's not easy to call a workout early because of an injury, but it's always the right thing to do. 

What's your 5k goal?  At one point, I was trying to train to get myself down to a 20min 5k.  I think my best was around 24-25 minutes.  I read that it's not about running 5k in 20 minutes, but more about running at 15kph for 20 minutes straight.  Either way you look at it, I couldn't do it.  I eventually broke my ankle and sorta gave up on that goal.  Maybe GW will help you get there.

Good to see you back on the forums.

Day 2/3

Day 2 was a quick shoulder blast workout.
Dosed GW 40 minutes before workout.
Nothing impressive to note, was a good workout.
I started to get some neck cramps while finishing up with some heavy DB shrugs.

Day 3
OMFG
Did I turn into Lance Armstrong?!
I just no poo ran a 21:36 for my 3 mile run.
As I started my run, I ran at what my usual "level of effort" was, and was shocked when I looked at my watch and saw a 6:35 pace. I averaged a 7:12 pace for the three miles which is amazing considering my typical 9:00 pace from previous months.
I used Pre Jym and some ephedrine which is my usual pre race concoction.
Pretty much I did not experience usual fatigue and my oxygen utilization is operating at Toyota Prius levels of efficiency here.

Day 4: Rest
Still dosed 20mg on off day

Day 5:
Chest Day
Noticed a very substantial drop in my explosive strength. I had the energy but the sheer output was lacking.
I found myself doing 10 to 25% lighter on my weights.

I need to start placing my macros into more appropriate ranges to get the best idea of what is going on.
Diet has been poor by bodybuilding standards. Need alot more lean protein.
I don't have the free minutes in my day to log my macros. I do plan on hitting a low carb stint to quickly drop 6lbs so I can weigh in for my semiannual weigh in under 175.

Good to see you back Raptor!

I have running this same compound and at the 20mg you are taking, which is safe, based on the research out there, you might be feeling the lethargic side it gives you. I try taking it with my prewokout on evenings I hit the gym and on my off days, I drop down to 14 mg; to me it's the sweet spot to avoid any sleepy or weak feeling.

Been sick this past week. Then I was out in the field for past 3 days.
I'm back now and workout was pretty terrible.

Day 12:
Overall weakness in my lifts with poor recovery between sets.
Decided to switch gears and do some cardio and it was no better. Lethargy combined with a recovering cardiovascular system ravaged by a sinus infection.
My diet was also terrible in the field past 3 days with probably 100g protein per day.

Been sick this past week.

I catch a cold about once a year, and I'm not the same for at least 2 weeks.  Crazy how something like even the common cold can really mess up your workouts.

Day 13:
Run time is improving back to where it was before.
I ran a 23:00 flat 3-mile today.
I did notice my heart beat was at 152bpm on average.
Not bad for an 85% effort run. (There were a few ladies on the track that I didnt want to blast by while wheezing air)

Day 14:
I added in a snippet of clenbuterol with my coffee this morning. Felt amazing all morning. Mainly this was to break out of my lethargic funk.
Dosed GW 45 min prior to lifting as usual.
Had a stellar workout until I did some hanging abs.
Severe ab cramps from over-stim. Thanks clen.

Workout was good with amazing pumps but still a little weak. I tore my right bicep partially last November and I can still feel some tight pains when lifting high rep.

So far my impressions are to use GW when I'm prepping for a race or run test but little else.
