But I would think that 4 years of even moderatly hard work would give the average person a more muscular body than I have! This is the very reason why im thinking of doing a cycle.
Be it bad genetics or whatever, I simply just dont gain a lot of muscle mass and I gain and retain fat very easily, although I have made some decent stregnth gains. Ive done heavy cardio workouts for months at a time. Sure, I lost some weight, but it would always come back in less than half the time it took me to loose it!
So what steroids/cycles would you suggest for cutting and getting lean muscular shape?[/quote]
I’m not sure where to start with you bud. But the simple answer to your question regarding you are “ready” for a cycle is NO. Not in my opinion anyway.
Reading the reply you left regarding your training history (see above quote), it seems to me that you must not have a handle on either your diet or training, or potentially both. You probably do work very hard, a lot of people do and it doesn’t show. If that’s the case, I commend your effort, it’s just a matter of how you go about doing the work, i.e. heavy cardio for months at a time.
Your main enemy here is diet. I can tell that from your picture. You probably don’t eat as clean as you think you do. I’m not saying you slam sodas and eat ThickBurgers everyday, but you apparently don’t eat very clean. You might eat “healthy,” but that does not necessarily constitute “clean.” Hopefully you have checked through jake’s thread, with as much flaming as we gave him, we also gave him solid advice for changing his physique.
One thing that should stand out to you, that a lot of people forget about is the combination of fats and carbs in one meal. You need to avoid that, and you probably have not been. I’ve said it a million times before, diet is your best weapon. Keep your carbs in meals before mid afternoon and save your fats for after that. Just don’t combine them. Also, something else I am a big believer in is empty-stomach morning cardio. It doesn’t have to be hard, chances are that’d be impossible since you’re so weak from not eating for 8-10 hours, but it does need to be consistent. Start doing that every morning; it can be as simple as walking through your neighborhood for 30 minutes at a good pace right when you wake up.
A lot of people, yourself included sorry, think AAS will give them a powerhouse physique. They don’t. They put the finishing touches on what you have achieved through diet and training. I believe Bushy referred to the “superhuman nutrient partitioning” ability AAS can give you. That’s a formidable weapon for the individual who knows how to use it, but for an individual who doesn’t have a good grasp on what they’re doing, it could potentially fuck them.
Ultimately what I am trying to tell you is that you need to get your training and your diet on spot before you consider AAS. And I think you actually have a good start. You say you have worked hard for 4 years and claim your only real improvement was in strength gains. If you’re working that hard and not seeing results, then you’re probably not working how you should. If you want some help regarding your training and diet, then please PM me and I’ll be happy to help you out. Your best bet would be to check out jake’s thread and see the advice we gave him. While you don’t seem to be as out of shape as his pictures lead us to believe, you’re quite similar in that you apparently don’t have a good grasp on your training or nutrition. Check it out and you’ll definitely learn something.
If you’re just hell bent on using AAS I guess I can accept that too. Assuming you feel the need that you must absolutely use AAS, please post up an exact cycle with your plans for PCT, any ancillary drugs, your compounds, and how you plan to change your diet and training to further complement AAS use…
One little tip too… since it’s your first cycle, if you absolutely must run it now, then run it with test only for 12 weeks at 500mg/wk followed by a stasis and taper…
Just my two cents, gents.
