It’s just a fact that you’ll get more out of it as your experience grows and you learn your body BEFORE you hit the juice. That’s the bottom line as far as i’m concerned.
You can juice now, your body will respond in some way or another… but after only FIVE MONTHS OF LIFTING (which is still so far beyond basic that i’d say you still need to be working on form/technique lol) you will not be able to properly gauge what affects the AAS is having on you, how to properly tweek and adjust your doses to illicit the responses you desire, to gain insight and valuable feedback into your larger training protocol - because you are still clueless at training (at FIVE MONTHS, believe me you are).
My rule of thumb would be, do it when you hit a plateau. And that’s a deliberately vague term.
For all i care, you could be a male stripper, dancer, faggot, who parties 3 nights a week snorting hard drugs, only manages to hit the gym once or twice a week, and has no time/inclination for a clean diet, and is only interested in looking like BPIFC so that the gay boys can leer at your pecks all shaved and shiny up on stage - in which case, juice away, i’m sure you will have the most basically passable physique your desiring through AAS use in an effort to stave of the worst body (de)composition effects of the lifestyle you chose, which is non-negotiable as far as your concerned. Most guidos and disco fags fall into this category.
But if you’re serious about powerlifting. Then you owe it to yourself to master the sport as much as you possibly can before introducing drugs in an intelligent manner.
I have no advice to offer you as to whether juicing at 22 or 19 or whatever age, or what effects on that are as i don’t know enough about endocrinology. I feel, only BBB or Bill Roberts could answer that one on here.[/quote]
I really hope I will grow into an experienced weight lifter with time. I know doing anything for 5 months wont make anyone an expert looking at other I would say the progress in terms of weight progression, muscle mass gained in the past 5 months is probably pretty rare. I was lucky to meet the lifting partners that I did that are pretty well informed on the subject and have both made pretty decent progress themselves. If someone wants to use AAS for means of body composition and they are not aspiring bodybuilders, well idk i have nothing to say about that (not my business) but my goals are clear and as I grow into a more knowledgeable weight lifter I cant see why using enhancement wouldn’t be justified in the future that is. I realize 19 is a bit young and my training experience or experience in weight lifting all together doesn’t justify my means. So I will be putting work in for the next few years to make AAS that much more rewarding when I do decide to bring them into the equation.
