Curious Noob Gains with AAS

Long time reader first time poster.

Ive been doing alot of reading about noob gains while just starting off body building and how you can gain muscle quicker because your body is new to lifting and how it then plateaus as your body gets accustomed to the training and it get harder to add muscle.

Ive just been given a full cycle for nothing and im looking at it and it got me thinking…

Theoretically speaking If and its a big if i was to take that cycle and have my diet in order and follow a strict full body routine.

How much muscle would be possible. Im probably gona get flamed for this but i wouldn’t want it to go to waste.

Is ther anybody here that just went on a cycle straight away after a few months in the gym and how did it go?

You age, training age, weight,height, all play a major role. Also, what kind of cycle was given to you?

this has fail written all over it.

“Given a full cycle” on post #1? I smell Troll…

Problem is you’ve only been lifting for a few months. You’re bodies joints, ligaments, tendons, and bones haven’t developed enough to really handle the stress that comes with lIfting and throw steroids in the mix, now your muscles well get really strong in a short amount of time but everything else won’t creating a very high chance of injury.

Usually when I see someone new to lifting they quit in a few months. I’ve had plenty of friends that wanted to workout with me an within a week or two they stopped showing up. Some people don’t like the pain and hardwork and time you have to put in the gym and outside the gym. I guess my point is this, how do you know in a few months or so your not gonna give up on lifting?, cause if you do you just wasted a cycle.

Keep natural you’ll be a lot better off, you don’t have enough training history to get on gear.

No troll It just happened to be given to me because a friend was leaving the country.

You are right with what you said ill see how i get on first if i can keep up the motivation no point wasting a cycle if my body isnt ready for it. Its ther for the future if it has a decent shelf life? Cheers guys

the stuff’ll keep for years. Put it in a cupboard and forget about it for a while

I think getting into working out is hard enough as it is. And when i stop a cycle I do find it harder to want to go into the gym alot harder. So i would recommend falling in love with training and making it a life style because that is what makes me go back to the gym after im done with a cycle. I just think its alot to deal with if you haven’t trained for at least a year or 2. And as buds said it could increase your chances of getting injured from all that extra strength. If you did do a cycle i would recommend getting a personal trainer to go over all the proper lifting techniques and get leg wraps and arm wraps and fish oil for joints.Also i would recommend doing high repetitions instead of heavy weight if you did do the cycle. Bottom line in my opinion just work out for a year and see if its even worth it for you. This might sound weird but in my opinion its not the muscle thats all that great its the journey getting there and going to the gym every day and seing progress. Even if its a little bit at a time its still very rewarding and once you get use to seeing 20 pounds put on in a month or something around that those little gains will be hard to appreciate.
