You need to learn about your body, what foods are good to eat, what training even IS period.
I went from 5’8 112lbs to 160lbs in under a year, that was never touched a weight skinny kid who couldn’t bench the bar to 160lbs.
Now yes I was around 15% bf but I put on the weight and I learned alot that first year.
You can jump on all the gear in the world and eat lik eyou have been and not make shit for gains, Why?? because if youc ant naturally get over 120lbs then you have NO IDEA what yoru doing.
Fuck go to mcdonalds. [/quote]
Well I don’t mean jumping on the gear and not eating.[/quote]
dude your not listening you do not need to jump on gear in any way right now. Your not ready for it. You could easily gain a serious amount of weight and strength if you just eat and train. Honestly getting on gear at this point you would probably injure your self. Your bones and tendons are not going to grow or harden half as your muscles and if you get on gear ylplus eating and training correctly your asking for a injury. You need to leave this section and start a thread in the begginers section. Learn the basics of eating, training, and recovering because obviously you have no idea.
Lastly if being a serious powerlifter, bodybuilder, or other athlete you have even less of a reason to run gear. Stop looking for the quick fix there is no such thing in this game trust me I have tried every single one of them and they do not work. Learn the basics, train the basics, repeat the basics and you will grow .[/quote]
Basically every word of this repeated until it sinks into your head.
Tendons don’t adjust as fast as muscle, nor do they recover as fast. You want reasons? Fine. You have NO FUCKING CLUE
a) what to eat
b) how often to eat
c) what is a good training program
d) what is a bad training program
e) how to tell a bullshit artist or writer from one who knows what they are doing
f) how often to train
g) how much is too much
h) how you respond to volume
i) how you respond to intensity
k) WHAT the FUCK “intensity” actually IS
L) how to be disciplined when shit gets hard and doesn’t go your way for say…2 years in a fucking row
m) how to even lift a fucking barbell with the right technique
n) how to deal with injuries naturally
o) how to recover from injuries naturally and get back to pushing hard iron instead of using them as an excuse or not recovering properly in the first place and getting re-injured
p) no idea how to use mobility drills within your training
q) no idea how to construct your own training regimen to produce results
r) no fucking idea what good results even look or feel like!
s) no fucking clue what hard work really means in the kitchen OR the gym
t) no fucking clue what real failure in the gym actually feels like
u) no idea what good supplements to take and what bullshit supplements are let alone steroids
v) you haven’t done shit without steroids
w) YOU’RE 118 MOTHERFUCKING POUNDS!!!
There’s 24 of them right there.
If you come back and say “well yeah I know what to eat” or “yeah I know how to train” or “yeah I know how to tell what a good program/coach/writer/science is” I’m going to call you a motherfucking liar. You don’t know this shit, because if you DID…you wouldn’t be where you are now. You figure that stuff out by DOING not by being an armchair quarterback, because roughly 80% of what you “think” you know is bullshit until proven in the gym and kitchen. And if you DO know this shit and you still are where you are now then you are fucking lazy and don’t deserve to use exogenous hormones to make up for your lack of willpower and discipline.
If you can’t put on a measly 30 lbs–as a NORMAL weighted individual let alone a drastically underweight and undernourished person–without steroids you don’t fucking know how to train. You have no concept of what is possible.
I don’t know you vets of the steroid forum handle this kind of thing repeatedly…I’ve just dipped in here for a few days and I’m already feeling like tearing my eyes out.[/quote]
Don’t tear your eyes out. You need to post here more often.
To the OP:
IMO, you have no business taking gear if you do not know how to make consistent gains in strength and size without drugs. If you knew how to make consistent progress, you would not be 118lbs. TBH, even gaining 30lbs won’t be much. That’ll just put you at normal weight.
Maybe my opinion doesn’t count for much, since I haven’t hopped on the needle yet (though it’s a certainty at some, likely soon, point), but consider this:
I am about your height (I’m 5’8" on a good day). I have trained seriously for one year. In that time I have moved up to 182lbs (lean enough to have my top 4 abs), arms over 16", and a PL total (gym lifts) over 1100lbs. I’m not claiming what I’ve done is impressive because it’s not. I’m not claiming to be an expert on training. Most/all of the guys here know much more than me (especially Aragorn, listen to him because he really knows what he’s talking about). I’m just using this as an example of the kind of progress you can make without drugs if you have some idea of what you’re doing. And if you can still make damn good progress without drugs, why start? At minimum, wait until you can (and actually do) make consistent progress.
