Well, you can guess that I'm not big on steroids for many reasons. Here are just a few:
1) Most men do not know how to monitor steroid usage and rely on very sloppy "bro science".
2) If money gets tight, most men will skip proper monitoring
3) Messing with hormones requires expertise imo and the great majority of guys do not have this (side effects, long term effects, performance, etc.)
4) Many of the steroids are debatably healthy.
5) It will affect fertility and you're a young guy.
6) It is a lot of time and effort. Is that really worth a 20% in T?
7) It is too tempting for most guys to go supraphysiological. This is very debatably healthy long term.
If you really want to go that route? Why not go to a sport science doctor or an anti-aging doctor?
And, finally, I put on a significant of muscle in my early 50's with testosterone in the 300's and 400's. There is no reason that you cannot put on gobs of muscle that will cause countless females to swoon and gasp as you walk by. So you can guess my next question: what's the point?
whats the point?
point is it's easy, stick in a needle BOOM test levels of 1000-2000
I do a lot of crap to get higher testosterone levels:
I'm 25lbs overweight(195lbs~22%fat) which I can get down to 10-15% in 3-4 months (lose 20lbs) to get to 12% bodyfat.(175lbs)diet
2 cups brocoli
1 cup coffee
1 tblsn cacao powder
3 sets, 8 reps of:
cardio 20-60mins day of walking
no more supplements: such as
Tart Cherry Juice
Alpha lipoic acid(spring valley) ,
Calcium/magnessium pill(nature made)
Garlic (nature made)
Cq10- 100mg Source naturals
Grape seed complex(spring valley)
Horny goat weed(source naturals)
Nativas cacao chocolate
Carlsons ( for my w-3s)
The misconception you have about me wanting to use steroids which was shown as you compared what you thought I want to look like to a silicon boob job.
I dont want to be huge, in the 3-4 months of a severe/moderate caloric deficit, I want have high testosterone as I diet.
but I know a big diet will be hard on my test levels, and even though I've taken time off of dieting and ate more to get my hormones working again, I know a diet will drop my testosterone levels and I dont want that to happen, not when read this site about:
venous leakage(causing hardening of the elastic tissue of the penis),http://peaktestosterone.com/Lose_Erection
wheat belly(which makes me avoid 96%of the bread i used to enjoy from sit down restaurants offering free bread)
how low testosterone will kill my sex life, and sex is good for you, http://peaktestosterone.com/Sex
how I need to lower inflammation and low Testosterone causes inflammation http://peaktestosterone.com/Inflammation
so I think 3 months of aas will be ok and then I'll be at a bodyfat level that wont have so much Aromatase http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aromatase
that I am turning my testosterone into estrogen.
thats an issue isnt it?
I need to lose the bodyfat because any extra testosterone I take, whether endogenous or exogenous, could be turned into estrogen, so by being fat, I have less tesosterone..so I better just lose the fat and then see whats going on
I dont want to mess with no anti aromatase to avoid man-boobs.... crap
ok,, no exogenous testosterone till I get to 10% bodyfat, then I'll see how things are, but will likely not want to mess with it
