I’m preparing for my first cycle (Test E 600mg/week) and believe I have everything in order. My training will consist of a strength-first mass program/diet, but I am a college football player so speed is rather important to me. That being said, a large part of my program outside of the weightroom will be sprint/sled/hill work.
My concern/question comes from a teammate of mine that ran a similar cycle this time last year and made great gains. At the end of the cycle, he was working on the track and tore his hamstring straight off the bone. The doctor told him it was because he had “done so well in the weight program” that his muscles had gotten stronger than his ligaments and tendons. Obviously, this isn’t the first I have heard of this as this is one of the points the anti-steroids groups claim.
Is this a legitimate concern that should be worked around? Or a case of bad luck for my teammate and a rare happening? As I am looking at playing time and want to solidify my spot, a muscle pull or tear would be terrible.
Any input appreciated. Thanks.
