I was 22 years old, 5ft 5"… 185lbs, was getting ready for my first bodybuilding show and I wanted to win it… I was going to compete in lightweight class, so I had to get down to 155lbs… my buddy had got me on a steroid cycle, he has done plenty of cycles and seemed like he had a lot of experience, so I trusted his word. So I was taking test e to start off, 500mg a week. Followed by that was tren (don’t remember the dose) also had me injecting masteron. After 8 weeks of that, I was looking the best I ever had. Having the most fun I’ve ever had in the gym, he then had me buy two more steroids to add to the cycle, that was clen and t3… 25mcg to start off with the clen, and don’t remember the dose for T3. I know everything was considered “Low Dose”.
Day two of adding the clen and t3 is when I had a very bad heart burn feeling. Then 5mins after I had the heart burn feeling and taking a bunch of tums, I could barely gasp for air and my chest was literally killing me. My mother seen me on the living room floor and rushed me to the ER… 7 days later I wake up, they tell me I had a heart failure… I was in a medically induced coma, and put on a ventilator because my heart wouldn’t work enough for me to breath on my own. I lost 20lbs in the 10 days total that I was at the hospital, it is now 2 years later and I’m still on heart medicine, still working out though and feel just fine. I just want the beginners to play it safe and don’t be dumb like I was, do a lot of research and ask questions.
Battling gyno now ( prescribed tamoxifen) and have torn labrums in both shoulders, think that’s from all the strength I got from the steroids and just going heavy a lot. Just play it safe fellas, bodybuilding is fun but not worth your life, everybodies body is different and we all react differently.
