Question: Do you use steroids to
- ASSIST your natural genetics in pursuit of physique and training goals
- MAXIMIZE your natural genetic potential
There IS a difference.
I realize this is a loaded question...one that can potentially lead to philosophical arguments...but that is what good forums are for; educated disussion.
Those who use(d) minimum amounts of anabolics (like me) I believe use anabolics to assist their training/physique enhancement journey. This includes "supplemental" use of anabolics where steroids are used infrequently and for the purpose of dealing with intermittent training ruts caused by overtraining, etc. This is NOT a better way of using steroids...not at all. It is simply a choice.
Those whose goal is to see just how big and strong they can possible get are those in the 2nd category. Their goal is to use enough anabolics to get the maximum effect while minimizing any negatives. Negatives ARE expected however, but within an individual's tolerance. These folks believe it is worthless to go on any cycle unless it elicits real dramatic results. These good folks believe anything less than 500 mg test is a waste of time....the philosoophy also believes any oral cycle really useless. Like the 1st philsophy, this is not a better of using steroids either...just another choice.
As I peruse the advice (many are GREAT advice..especially from vets who have remained on the board) given on these boards, I'm noting alot more of the 2nd philosophy. So that made me curious...anyone out there even think about steroids these days with the 1st philosophy in mind?
This is just a question. But one that I believe is important when reviewing any type of advice, etc. Everyone's goals are different...everyone's comfort level with getting to that goal is also different. It would be great I think if posters would indicate what approach they are comfortable with. Not everyone who posts questions is looking for competitive bodybuilder results...and the advice for these folks shouldn't be the same advice for the individual who DOES want to get to the higher levels. To counter, not everyone is looking for just "assistance" either...they want to see how far they can go.
