That video was interesting and based off that and some of the comments I will not run winstrol.
And considering that the winny was the only real reason I was considering the shorter esters, I think a tren E test E cycle is the way to go, aiming for less weight loss per week
And as an aside, at the end of the day we all make choices in our lives and I strongly believe that everybody is entitled to make whatever choices they like when it comes to their own bodies.
I do think that people should have a degree of life experience and maturity that allows them the ability to make educated decisions which consider the risks and the rewards, and that posting threads like this is part of that education process. Although I went in already fully aware that many don’t agree with me or the way I choose to manage my health, weight and body I still think it is important for me to be as fully informed as possible before making a choice.
Having been active in forums like this for years I have always found the general mental leaps and bounds and cognitive dissonance amazing though.
If you go consult just about any doctor and tell them you are about to jump on a cycle, they are not going to say well Mr Gym Rat, I see here that you are over 25, only at 13% bodyfat and youve trained for 10 years managing to hit your genetic potential. You can tell me the definitions and differences between a SERM and and AI and a SARM, and therefore you have passed the test and so I hereby give you my endorsement and stand behind your decision to use steroids to improve your physique.
Instead what the doctor will almost always say is that you are making reckless decisions about your health and your life for essentially vanity, and you have no idea how this is going to affect your body in the future. He or she will say you have no clue about what potential negative effects you will experience during the cycle, and no real idea of how your body will adjust during PCT.
The doctor will almost never prescribe you the drugs you want, including PCT drugs which are all off label, and will say that you risk putting compounds into your body where you don’t know the source, you don’t know how accurately they are dosed or what exactly is in them. They will say that you aren’t properly trained in safe injecting techniques and probably don’t have an appropriately sterile place to use and store the drugs.
You will say doc don’t stress, I have studied this for months on forums, I have read scientific journals, I have asked advice, I have a full PCT plan in place, I am going to have bloods done on both sides and I trust the sources from online reviews and the label and others that have used it.
The doctor in most cases will still say it is an absolutely reckless and foolhardy decision and that you are naïve that because you spend 6hrs a day on forums and have read some papers that this accounts for the risk.
And yet on forum after forum members fail to take this contradiction into their thoughts properly, and have established their own set of rules and conditions under which this can be done ‘safely’ gatekeeping these rules, looking down on others in the same communities as if their perception of any given steroid user is any different from how most doctors and the general public looks at them.
The steroids and conditions and methods these users choose is right and safe, but only if all these conditions are met, in which case steroids are bad. I am not disputing the years of community evidence, the presence of doctors on these forums, the articles produced etc but don’t make the mistake of thinking that any regular doctor is going to look at you who has done everything ‘right’ with any less disdain that you look upon me with.
There are many things in life that fk us up and hurt our bodies with (in my opinion) equal risk to our health and wellbeing. I bet many on here smoke, use cannabis, drink, use other recreational drugs. Maybe some hit the hard stuff on a night out, or drop some amphetamines to study or get through work. I bet many stay up too late, or eat too much processed food, or stay stationary or sitting at work too long. I bet more than a few do no cardio or speed while driving on the way to work. Maybe some do extreme sports, or fk around with the ladies too much without wrapping up. All this can and does greatly impact the future of your health.
Point being the amount of people on this, or any other forum, that think their lives are pure enough to crticise others and say that their informed use of illegal drugs is any better than anothers is just fooling themselves. They are fooling themselves into thinking that what they are doing is ok and safe, just because that they conform to the general consensus amongst a biased group of drug users.
