I really enjoy these threads, 'cause it's a question I frequently ask myself (Is it time?).
I'd like to play Devil's advocate for a minute here, and I'll be the first to admit that I'm dramatically under researched. I'm also not disagreeing with any of the advice that's been put forward.
That being said, why would someone who has a program in place (program critiques aside) and is working on improving his size/strength not use steroids AS WELL as incorporating the advice he recieves from the members on the forum?
Using this example, why would our original poster not
A) Sort out his PCT,
B)Increase his calories
C) Change from stady state distance running to sprints,
AND D) Use his bottle of Test E. together?
It's not like he's in high school and looking for an easy road (and shattering his endocrine system in the process), he's an adult who's training hard looking for an opportunity to develop beyond what he sees as a plateau.
