I know most people will say yes, endocrine reasons etc. Is it true or is it just as safe for a responbile 18 year old to be on AAS as it is for a 25 year old?
All around me, I see kids in the gym, young kids I graduated befor and a few younger friends of mine, who have been on gear and are fine.
These kids are anywhere from 18-23, the majority being 18-21 and they are fine. They are making huge gains, no acne, no gyno, they’re getting their bloodwork and test levels and it’s all coming up fine.
One friend of mine is 19 years old, the kid has been running quite a few cycles and mainly follows with a PCT of HCG and rarely Nolva, and I know his doctor personally. His lipids are fine, test levels, everything. None of these kids are balding, loaded with acne, suffering from depression or gyno, and their bloodwork and doctors say they are fine.
What’s the deal?[/quote]
Lets put the risk factors pertaining to endocrine damage aside for a second. (they are most certainly real btw, I am not trying to downplay them)
There is no way an 18 year old has accomplished enough in the gym to even warrant a cycle of steroids. It’s really as simple as that. You can say otherwise but I don’t believe that 95% of teenagers have enough working knowledge about training to justify using steroids. As far as proper nutrition goes I’d say the percentage is much higher. A steroid cycle is only as good as the person’s training and nutrition habits. I am not saying one has to be on the PERFECT training program or have the the most immaculate meal plan ever seen to have a sucessful cycle but there is just too much info to be learned and understood that the overwhelming majority of teenagers do not possess.
Doing a cycle at 18 is something you will regret, unless you are going to be the next ronnie coleman.
