At your age your natural test is on the decline and most HRT docs should take you seriously, although they might think you've been juicing, so what... thats discriminating. I know of a lot of people who have used/abused steroids for 15+ years and when they want to come off they need TRT and most clinics should prescribe them as these are people with low test.
Either way if you choose to go that route read up on it first and look into the steroids forum on this site as there are several stickies there that should answer the majority of your questions.
Other than that there really isn't any other supplement, training method, or diet that will give you results faster than what you may already be doing. Assuming your physique is where you claim it to be.
If you choose to compete in an NPC event or any un-tested show I guarantee most people will be using AAS. I'd never advise somebody to do it because it is their choice, but you will be competing against people on the sauce so..food for thought. lol
My only advice as far as training and diet is:
1.) if you need more size in your legs you cannot do that while cutting, but thats obvious.
2.) if you have decent size but just need some seperation and definition then the diet should take care of most of that but there are a few exercises such as sissy squats, hacks, extensions, etc that can help.
3.) last...the quads/glutes are some of the largest muscles of the body and they require a lot of load on the muscle to induce hypertrophy imo/ime...so heavy weights will be your best bet.
Either way, sorry for the long winded post, and welcome to tnation.
Pics would be cool and I am definitely a fan of having other bodybuilders on this site.
you have brought out the catch 22 of my problem, 12 weeks out, time to cut, leg size is not there yet so I need to bulk to get them up but that would counterintuitive to the rest of the body
Good advice on the leg training as far as heavy weight I do a pretty intensive leg day twice a week..heavy day I start with leg press starting at 180 lbs and pyrimading up to as heavy as 650 lb which I still get at least 10 strict reps in, then go to hacks, curls and deadlifts
One I will try is going heavier on the deadlifts I usually keep it at a max of 225 and keep the reps around 10-15
I'm going to research the "ASA" since I don't even know what that stands for?!
I will get better educated then make some determinations
As far as pics, I recently was a part of photo shoot with a group as well as a video shot, I will post as soon as I get them uploaded
Thanks again for all the great advice
lol "asa" ???
AAS? = Anabolic/Androgenic Steroids. lol
well your choice seems to skip this contest and throw on some leg size, or just cut up anyways and go into the contest with what your bringing.
Never sacrifice conditioning for size imo.
Going heavier on your deads will add some more beef to your back and glutes/hams.
I always recommend going heavier because heavier weights make bigger muscles. lol
That's it in a nutshell, sounds like I'm not ready for my first comp in 12 weeks, I really need to bring my legs up first....I just got to looking at some of the Master's division winners and thinking, hell I already look like that! My legs aren't what most would call small I actually have a good base for ham size it's just the quads I'm going to struggle with becasue of the knee issuses
My Ortho doc has told me not to do any extentions, front squats or lunges
That was funny about the ASA comment...shows you what a virgin I am!
