I was trying to think of a clever, but educated way to start this off, but decided to just tell you my story then ask my questions, cut and dry.
I want to start getting serious about bodybuilding and start competing. I am 26 years old, and I have been lifting for a little over 3 years now. And I don't care what anyone says or thinks, I believe that you can truly do anything you set your mind to, and I believe in following dreams. And I dream of competing at a professional level.
So when I say I want to get freakin huge, I am talking like Jay Cutler huge. And I am no newb to bodybuilding, I know damn well that in order to be that huge it takes a shit ton of determination, will power, training and yes, the use of certain performance enhancing drugs.
When I first began lifting it was for the most common of reasons. To look better, be healthier, and of course, to elevate the quality tail I could chase and actually nail. But once I started lifting, as I am sure many people here can relate..it changed my life. Suddenly I am having dreams about lifting. I have a hard time (even now) falling asleep the night before I start a new routine just because I am so excited and I cannot wait to get to the gym and start training. Eating suddenly went from "hmmm, what sounds good for dinner?" to "Okay, so if I eat a baked potato with my salmon, that will give me just enough carbs to carry me thru the rest of the evening, and it also balances my macro nutrients out perfectly!" It was at this point that I truly realized lifting, training, dieting, and finally..competing, is what I want to do. What I want to focus on.
But alas, I admit I have been and still am, quite the loner when it comes to training.
I feel the hour long lessons the iron gives me each day is to be shared between itself and I, and I pay with the sweat and sometimes small amounts of vomit, it brings about. So needless to say I have no mentor, no fellow training partner to turn to when I have questions such as these. And so, I decided to go ahead and ask the mecca of sites. The one hot spot in my internet browser to which I owe so much of the credit for the body transformation I was able to achieve.
So now that you know a little about me and where I am coming from, these are my questions..and please, only educated answers, eh?
How does one start steroid use? i.e who should I talk to, what should I read, study, and understand, etc?
How does one actually go about getting them? I'm not asking you to give me the name and address of your source here, just a general overall answer would suffice.
Say both one and two are achieved, how do you know what to take, how much..how often?
Where do all the bodybuilding coaches hide?
In a perfect world I would love to meet a coach who has trained pros or at least those trying to go pro, who would know the answers to all of the above questions AND be able to train me, teach me how to pose....but where in the hell do you find people like that, and how?
I think I will stop there for now. Those 4 questions alone are quite a bit to ask of anyone. Seeing as how I have been trying to find the answers to these for almost 7 months now with no luck..I am hoping at least one of you can help me out!
Thank you all for your time, and for reading such a long post, and for any help!
