Im 32. I've gone from 145 lbs to 176 over a period of 4 years @ 5'6". Currently, I am approximately around 8 - 10%. I've tried prohormones and I dont want to use them anymore; I find them ineffective in the long-run and cause all kinds of internal havoc. I am now ready start cycling correct cycles, but am very averse to needles. I've had shots before like anybody else, and I feel that the 27ga ... maybe even 25ga needles might be OK for me. It is my understanding though that most oil steroids are thick and will not pass through anything thinner than 22 or so. I've seen a 22. It scares me. I can already see the "pussy" comments coming...chill... I know... I cant help it. What I would like to know is, what is the "thinnest" oil steroid you know of and what is the thinnest needle that can be used for it?
I saw on a forum somewhere that a 27ga can be used for some oil based compound, but... I know what 27ga needles look like (I work for a dental supply company) and it just looks way too thin for anything thicker than water...so im skeptical at what I've read. This is why I come to the experts of Tnation.
the kind of steroids im most interested in are those considered basic.
I'm not interested in tren or other super high side-effect steroids.
I'm interested in something along the lines of testosterone, deca, eq .. etc... steroids considered relatively safe by "non-pro-card" users. I will eventually be using this with HGH once I get the hang of how my body responds to the injectables.
I am basically in somewhat of a new mode. For the past 4 years, I was basically in the "as much muscle as possible as quickly as possible to look as hard and tough as possible" ... now... I've recognized that I am not going to get a pro-card for a handful of reasons, the main one being my torn up shoulder, so I've given up that balls to the wall mentality about putting on muscle.
What I am interested in now is to maintain my youth and vitality. I wanna live fuller and longer, physiologically speaking...which is why I now wanna stay away from the methylated compounds and just use low dose oils as well as hgh to accomplish this. I do though, still wanna put on some more muscle, but not much too much more.... around 190 pretty lean is around what I want to maintain over the course of the rest of my youthful life...so im thinking a smidge above TRT style dosing would be my target range (im in no great hurry). I will be consulting a doctor soon to figure out what my current hormone, lipid levels, and overall state of health. I've not yet figured out the proper dosing for this...but... suggestions on this would be appreciated as well.
What I had in mind was some kind of test, deca, hgh, and low doses of arimidex during cycle.
Other suggestions are also welcome.
I know I'm a noob. I wanna learn from you. Teach me.
