Hey guys, I’m not sure if this is taboo or not allowed to be discussed as it isn’t in other forums but here it is…
While I’ve been a trainer most of my life, I’ve never taken steroids or anything close. Muscle has never been my issue to say the least and I’m not looking to be competitive. Plus, I’d be scared shitless if I lost my hair. ( I know it’s more for people with a predisposition for that, but I don’t wanna take any chances.
So why I am interested and asking? I broke my back about 5 years ago and spent several years in agony, still do. Last 4 months, I finally started working out. Had gained 90 lbs. Lost most of it now but still another 30 to go. My back still hurts but I train when I feel good and do my best to avoid making it flare up again.
Anyway, I’ve often considered if it would be beneficial to take a short term cycle to help build up my muscles, particularly core and supportive muscles to the spine to help with injury and re-build my muscles faster. Not to mention the help it would add to get back into the game of training. Not to mention my testosterone levels are still low from years of pain medications which I’m off now for a while. So anyone think this is a good idea? Would there be far less chance of negative effects prementioned by doing, say just a 1-3 month cycle?
Sorry again if this is bad call on this post. I’ve read on other sites but wanted your guys advice. Thanks!
