Pressure to Use


#1

New to this forum and have a serious dilemma. I'm going into my freshman year of college for athletics. Started practicing with my team and almost all use right now on the off season. Which is weird that lacrosse players are using injectables because they aren't known for size.

But they keep pushing that the freshman start using to get their size up to par. I was completely against it but and changing my opinion the more I see it and am becoming normalized to it.

Thoughts and advice?

Every guy made his own choice, you have to do the same. At the end of the day you have to answer to the guy in the mirror.

If you were going to use, there is no reason not to use injectables. With proper research (both here and elsewhere), a good athletic cycle can be put together that will help you put on some size without being (too) detrimental to the rest of your game.

How much size are they expecting you to put on?

there is life after college… trust me, you don’t want to go down this road
