Bill: Sometime last week you responded to a post that there was no such thing as an “ideal” cycle; That it all really depended on your goals. Makes sense. So I decided to pose to you two scenarios (that probably aren’t too uncommon) as a tool for learning a bit more about the practical use of anabolics in the “real” world (if this crazy world we love could be called “real”!-:). So here goes:
1)A 23 year old female former gymnast has been competing for the past 2 1/2 years in fitness competitions. She is trained by a former National level bodybuilder who pushes her training to the max. Her diet is clean, with plenty of protein, small frequent meals, adequate cals and growth and fat loss promoting macro ratios. She has come in at least first or second in every competition she has been in, and barely missed the cut for the Jan Tana. Her trainer says that a judge friend of hers said her routine was great, but her aesthetic was too “Self and Fitness Magazine” looking (“ouch!”). She needed fuller, larger and more shapely musculature. Her trainer said it’s time to “move to the next level” and recommends a cycle. She is 5’7", about 125 lbs., and her trainer figures she can use 15-20 lbs of quality muscle.Our competitor says "okay; but no chest hair, deep voice, bald hair or a “cow cootie”. What do you suggest, for how long and why?
Scenario Two 1) A 21 year old former All State Linebacker couldn't quite make the cut as a Wolverine. But he loves Michigan, even if he didn't keep his scholarship. To supplement tuition cost, he dances with a group of guys at parties and night clubs around Ann Arbor. He follows the advice to the hilt that he gets from "Testosterone", works out hard and smart, and follows the advice of a personal trainer who is known to be a "T-Mag Disciple". He is a trim 6'2", 170 lbs with muscles right out of "Men's Fitness". But he realizes that he can make more money if he could put on about 30-50 lbs of solid, hard, "botty shakin'" muscle, especially for those Sorority Parties in Ann Arbor! One of his fellow dancers recommends some "Vitamins". What do you suggest, for how long, and why?
Hope this will be fun instead of a pain, Bill! Thanks!
