For a good 6 years I was in a bodybuilder mode on and off but never had any desire to compete but just gain a lot of size. I went from around 135lbs to peak around 185lbs. I then started to get very inconsistant with my workouts and waveried anywhere between 165 - 180lbs. I never considered myself strong compared to the size that I gained. Then I started a Westside Barbell program back in November 2006 and have moved entirely over to the Darkside for good. I'm now training for a powerlifting meet in April of 2008.
Currently for the past month I've been eating between 4,000 to 5,000 calories a day. Percentages split up somewhere around 40c/30p/30f.
Typical Westside so far
Day1: DE Bench
Day2: ME Squat/DL
Day3: ME Bench
Day4: DE Squat/DL
Then throw in some GPP work here and there.

Nothing right now but you never know.
Current Bench, Squat, Deadlift
I did my 1RM 9 weeks ago now and was planning on waiting a good 12 weeks before I did it again. But I will go ahead and shoot for a 1RM again on my Squat, Bench, and DL. Then I will go for another 1RM in another 9 weeks after doing my test with IntraXCell and Steeledge and be able to compare. I know it probably wont be as large of a gain in weight increases as increases probably wont come as easy in the future.
Previous Max: (With creatine)
Current Max: (No Creatine)
Goal Max in 2 months: (With Steeledge and IntraXCell)
Any other relevant information
I've been off creatine now for over a month and can feel the effects on my endurance and recovery. I haven't lost any strength as I have consistently lifted PR's the past month. My muscles seem to get sore quicker and for longer periods of time. I was going to go back onto creatine by April before I saw the opportunity to test SteelEdge and IntraXCell and decided to try something different that is supposed to help with exactly what I'm feeling.
