I am looking to compete in powerlifting (Raw) in the 75kg category next year. I have been spot on 75kg(165lb) bodyweight for a couple of years now while continuously increasing my strength. I am 21 years old and have been training for about 3 years. I am around 9% bodyfat and would not like to get much lower as I find a lose a lot of strength when I get down to 7 or so.
Lifts are 220kg/484lb Squat, 280kg/616lb Deadlift, 160kg/352lb Bench.
I think I will already be very competitive within my weight class but gains are really starting to slow down. I want to go on to break records at this bodyweight, but think I will need the help of drugs.
I have been researching AAS for a while now and can’t seem to come up with a cycle that will increase my strength without gaining bodyweight. The only two compounds I have been recommended are Anavar and Winstrol, but first of all I don’t like the sound of the effects on joints from Winstrol, and I have been told it is a bad idea to take either of these without Test.
Of course if I take test then I will most likely gain muscle which is not something I particularly want.
Any suggestions as to what to take? I want to get some quality strength gains this year and then come off the drugs in time for competitions, So would also like to use a drug that has retainable gains.
Is it possible to do a cycle or two now to get a ‘Head Start’ and then go back to being a natural and continue to make strength gains?
Thanks for any help
