I’m turning 36 next month and I want to start my first cycle. In 2012, I got serious in the gym and have made great improvements. However, I think I’m at my genetic top. I can’t disclose height and weight for discretion. I have a 405 squat, 425 dead and only a 265 bench.
In 2012 I started just doing the typical bro stuff in the gym with a horrendous squat depth and form that would rip rotator cuffs off my body now. I switched to crossfit in 2014 and stopped in 2017 since I wasn’t getting any size or real strength. From 2017-2019 I’ve been focused on Powerlifting only, diet, routine and lifestyle. I’ve put on weight but can’t get my stats any higher. None of my family members have muscle and 90% don’t even exercise regularly. I think the only reason my stats are as good as they are is due to my form and core work. I’m currently using The Texas Method to see if I can slowly start getting results.
I want to start a cycle but it’s tough to tell where I should start. I’m working overseas but am a US resident. Seems like it’s easy to get online but not sure how it works through the mail/ customs. I’ve also started the process with my Dr. to look into TRT. However, it looks like my T levels are “normal” so I don’t see him giving me a dose high enough to get my deadlift to 600 or bench to 350.
Should I order online and have it shipped? It would be a DPO, similar to a APO. Should I pick some up stateside when I rotate home and bring it will me in a checked bag? If I do order should I stick to US sources?
I also am subject to testing for this stuff so am I correct in assuming that T won’t show up in a urine test? I’m pretty sure the only way to pick up this stuff on a drug screen is a blood test.
Any legit information is really appreciated.
