I’ve been thinking about doing a cycle of steroids/enhancers in order to jump start my journey back to respectability body-wise. Bit of background: I’m in my late 30s and have had two kids in the past few years and let myself go a bit (a lot). I used to be 6’4" and 220 lbs, which I’ve always felt is probably a good weight for me (although I was a bit doughier that I would’ve liked to be… basically had dad bod before being a dad lol) and played multiple sports, worked out semi-regularly.
However, I’m now around 270 lbs (though I feel like I carry it reasonably well, I’ve been told I have a good frame), energy levels always low, eat like shit and would like to not only cut weight/lean out quick but plan on continuing regular workouts in perpetuity to maintain a better physique and get the energy levels higher. In other words: after discussions and research I think a cycle could be the jump start I need that would also work to give me relatively quick results to keep me going.
After speaking with a friend of friend who has been using steroids regularly, I was recommended the following program:
Week 1-4 Dianabol (25mg per day) and 500 mg per week of testosterone enanthate.
Week 5-10 500 mg per week testosterone enanthate.
Week 11-12 nothing
Week 13-15 post cycle therapy (clomid, nolvadex)
I plan on not only adopting a rigorous workout routine but also vastly improving my food intake (both in terms of quality and intake). Does this seem like a worthwhile endeavour? As I mentioned, I have no interest in massing up but would rather lean out with definition and lose weight.
I’m just sick of being a chubby schlub and would like to get back to my old energy levels and athleticism. I’ve done a lot of online research in terms of the benefits and potential side effects so I understand what I’m getting into from that angle. Any thoughts/suggestions from you guys would be appreciated!
