So it does seem correct then that everyone is biologically on par with each other.
Hagar: I plan to keep a log on this forum and in my Magnum’s blog, posting EOD or E3D just how things are going.
P-22: I get joint pains even now. I try to work past them but I’m not looking forward to how bad they will be with increased lifts. Fish oil helps a ton, though. At least for me it does.
Just be very carefull. Listen to your body. If you are getting joint pains now, I can assure you it will get worse.
Steroids can mask the pain, but it will not prevent injuries, or cause you to heal any quicker.
typically steriods have an anti-inflamitory action that allows you to train an injured joint or tendon past what your body would naturally allow you to do without feeling a significant pain responce. This is due of course to the antiflam action that prevents such things as prostaglandins e.t.c from firing.
Bottom line is this: You can creat chronic injuries before you even know you have done so.
So be carefull, I suggest you train for reps and the burn, not for power.
If that is your motivation for doing AAS (power) then make sure you listen to your body very carefully, as you are only as strong as your weakest link.
