I am going to give you some advice that you aren’t going to listen to. But I am going to give it anyway, try to pay attention.
I see shit like this everyday, and more so on this site … “WANNA-BE’s”. Everyone want to be this or wants to be that:
-I want to be big and strong, but I don’t want to eat right and lift heavy weights.
-I want to lose some fat, but I don’t want to eat right and go on a strict diet.
-I want to use steroids (to accomplish the two things I listed previously), but I don’t want to deal with any negative side-effects, or have to inject all the time, or inject at all, or follow the advice of others and run an intelligent cycle.
You catching my point? Everyone wants to BE something, but they don’t want to DO what is necessary to be what they want.
You want to get bigger. Are you doing what is necessary to get bigger? Are you eating properly? Are you training intelligently? Are you sleeping right? Are you supplementing right? I will answer that for you: NO! YOU ARE NOT DOING THESE THINGS!
How do I know? Because you are 18 and 160lbs. You probably don’t take enough protein, you probably don’t eat a big breakfast, you probably don’t take in enough fat, you probably don’t take in enough calories, you probably don’t sleep enough.
How do I probably know this? Because I know grown men who can’t do these things right. I know a 18 yr old isn’t going to do this.
I was 18 once as well, a shredded up 170lbs. Oh yeah, I had ripped abs, separated biceps, and veins all over the place.
I was a top athlete and got many Div.I scholarship offers. I thought I looked good. I thought I knew everything about lifting and eating. I DIDN’T KNOW ANYTHING! And I wasn’t ready for steroids. And I still used them. And the benefit they provided was transitory. I look back and realize that I am very lucky that I didn’t seriously screw myself up.
You can go ahead and use your deca and test. You can gain some weight and feel pretty good about yourself. But you won’t keep your gains. Why? Because you don’t know how to gain muscle in the first place, how are you going to maintain extra muscle?
And you can’t avoid the negative effects of steroids, there is no getting around it. You have to take the bad with the good. But the good won’t be all that good because you won’t keep your gains. And you will damage you potential for future growth, and you will mess up your hormone profile.
So quit being a WANNA-BE. Be a WANNA-DO. Look at what you want to be and ask yourself: “What do I have to DO to get what I want?” Steroids are a pathway to get to where you want to be, if you take on all the bad that comes with it. Or you can look at what you are doing and determine if your behavior matches your goals. It probably doesn’t.
So don’t ask us “How can I take steroids and not fuck myself up?” You are going to fuck yourself up. Just make sure that the pay-off is worth the risk.
