Hey T-Nation. Long time listener, first time caller.
I’m currently a Western man living and working in China. Let’s say a friend of mine wanted to get ahold of some gear. Hmmm, ahhh, I dunno say Stanzolol Depot, for instance. What would his options be?
As any inquisitive and self-reliant person, I began my search on Google. A lot of them were old… pre-beijing olympics, and none of them gave me the answers I was looking for.
I met a guy in Shandong who lifted (bodybuilder. Straight up competition status.)so I decided to ask him if he knew anything about it. I mentioned that I know he had been in the community and that he competed (and won) in some BB competitions and that he probably knew a lot of people in the community so he might know something about it. Even Though I know damn well that as yoked as he is there’s probably a 99.9% certainty that he’s jabbing something. Probably lots of somethings. Possibly every something besides synth.
His response was to go full “Ultimate Warrior is Insane” on me. (If you haven’t seen the video check it out, it’s pretty funny). Actually his reactions pretty much confirmed that he was on something as far as I’m concerned. But it didn’t bring me any closer to my goals. Taking in one last smell of the smoke from that burned bridge, I decided to pursue my next course of action.
I asked a friend. Not a bodybuilder, just a pretty nice guy, and a regular, average chinese dude if he knew anything about it. I asked him if it was possible to get a prescription for it from a doctor here. He said that he thought it was possible but I haven’t been able to confirm that yet.
Going to a doctor would be a preferred method as China is full of contaminated and knockoff goods. Not specifically AAS, but I want to be careful.
Before anyone says all the freaking gear comes from China so it’s easy as going to the pharmacy and asking for it, I can assure you that is not true. I’m sure some people here take it…just like everywhere else, but they seem pretty unwilling to help a foreign dude out.
Curiosity leads me to ask other questions. If a friend of mine really wanted something like this, what would be a better option, taking a vacation for a month to say Russia, or Thailand (both countries are pretty close and not difficult to gain entry).
Anyway, I hope someone who’s had some experience can give me a bit of information. It would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance for all replies, T-bros.
