I know of many people who didn't take steroids 16-18 and they are very big
In my original post I was not talking about infertility. I was talking about a steroid cycle replacing a natural steroid growth phase that would be better than ANY aas cycle. You are at the beginning of your best hormone boost that will EVER happen in your entire life and you want to shut it down with some half arsed aas cycle.
And what makes you think it didn't stunt their growth? It certainly stunted their true potential because all aas cycles shut down your normal hormone output. That's why PCT is there, to try to kick start it again.
Sorry bud, but i doubt very much you know your arse from your elbow. It takes years for a powerlifter to learn squat and bench form properly, and in fact they can always improve. At 17, you, like every single human on the planet who has been a teenager, thinks they know everything. Not being disrespectful, but it's a fact. I am sure you are a dedicated person as you have put on weight over the last year. So why the fuck would you screw that all up by shutting down your huge natural testo production that is now starting to ramp up. If you have put on x amount of lean mass over 12 months, chances are that you will put on the same again over the next 12 months. Probably more once you learn even more about diet and training (and no, you don't know it all now. No one does, especially a wet 17 year old). So why use aas to put you no further ahead that you would be anyway?
And this is one of them. "Apparantly" is not fact. Again, you are ignoring the plain facts and grasping at straws to justify your position. I bet that if you asked Arnold now if you, at 17, should take aas he would kick you in the balls.
You "think" but you don't "know". Again, what is the point of taking aas when your natural hormone boost now starting is far superior to ANY aas cycle. It has zero estrogen side effects, nothing is shut down, it's 100% natural and with the right diet and training will give you a growth boost that will not dissapear after 3 weeks. And you don't have to take those other poisons, adex, clomid, nolva, etc. with all their potential side effects.
Wrong. How can you be 100% certain you will not continue on your line of impatience and need for instant gratification? How may alcoholics have said, "I can stop at any time" or junkies for that matter. It's a real fact that once you go down this path, nothing else will "do the job". Steroid addiction is real. It's a mental sickness similar to anorexia.
Sure no problem. This is what you do.
Pick a goal (weight increase or strength increase or whatever)
Set up a progressive training program to reach your goal on a given date.
Set up a diet to compliment your training and goal. (Both of those can be done on this site)
Schedule in 8-9 hours of sleep each night.
Go do it.
No lines crossed. Goal acheived. Natural hormone production fully utilised. You will have learned life long lessons to help you become a real man (self discipline, confidence in yourself, goal setting, self esteem).
