yes your friends advice is questionable. For explosive power you will first need to learn explosive exercises. Forget the gear for now because its obvious you will need 6 months of reading to understand how stupid your cycle proposals are? Read more and train for explosive power. I have two national titles in kickboxing and 6 amature MMA fights to my name, natural. Gear won’t do shit for you until you master technique. I quit fighting (ok my wife made me) due to the injuries. I went to the weights and couldnt be happier. Martial arts is great but I never ever came close to taxing my body as much as I do now. The gym is much more controlled and you dont have to wake up the morning after a tourneyment and crawl to the bathroom for a piss, because your shins and theighs are bruised so badly. READ READ READ! You shouldnt have to worry about achne with a AI, but fucking read…[/quote]
First off, much respect for your accomplishments in the martial arts.
Second, while being uninformed in the ways of chemical enchancement, I am not planning to hop on a cycle tomorrow. This is just testing the waters, seeing what folk think.
Third, I do know my weight training, Hell, I should, I’ve been lifting since I was 16. Being well aware of the exercise selections, set/rep/frequency schemes that are out there, I simply plan to stop training for hypertrophy and focus on my abovementioned goals. My point was simply, what to take that will not give me too much bulk, thus slowing me down and inviting injury.
Obviously, mastering the power movements will take practise. Same with technique. In time, I’ll learn, and I strongly agree with the “read read read” credo.
And lastly, I’m into ninjutsu which, as I’m sure you know, does not have competitions. While I’m well aware that people think that taking gear for non competitive purposes is stupid and pointless, I just wish to be the best I can be at it. Realize my potential to the fullest. Because it is something I love to do. I’m sure you can relate.
