I wish the guys who came on here sniffing around for advice/suggestions would just be forthcoming with what their intentions were.
You thinking about a cycle? Ok, but just know that all of us on here WILL be adamant that you have a solid diet and training regimen already in place, that you research, research, research the drugs you are considering and understand [at least on a basic level] their mechanisms of action, their supposed benefits, their potential negative effects, how they impact the body overall, etc. Understand that we will flat out tell you that unless you have been training HARD for 5-7 years [obviously that time frame is very loose and subjective, but I feel that this figure should ideally be the minimum], you haven’t yet even maxed out your natural muscle building potential and you should instead focus on a better diet, workout routine, supplement regimen, etc. We will also ask you what your goals are from using AAS? Are they reasonable, achievable, and will AAS in fact help you to attain them?
We’ll want to know if you’ve really thought out your cycle, for YOU, and how long, and at what dosages, you plan on running various AAS. This part we can be a bit more forgiving with seeing as how we understand that you haven’t done a cycle before and will most likely need some guidance/advice. But don’t come to us and lay down an obviously poorly thought out, dumbass looking cycle. All that does is immediately tell us experienced guys that you haven’t researched shit, you don’t know what the fuck you are doing, and that you are just another idiot that wants to “take some gear and get jacked, bro!”. That’s the same person who will eat like garbage while on, train without a strict plan or any real intensity/blood and guts, and who’ll finish their cycle up some pounds, sure, but then will lose all of it within a few weeks due to a lack of pre/during/post cycle planning.
The exact same thing goes for guys coming on here asking about TRUE TRT. It’s the same principal with training hard, eating well, doing research into your TRT options, getting initial bloodwork done and sharing it with us so that we can also advise what your options are. When someone comes on here educated, humble, and obviously having done their homework, people here are immediately more than willing to give constructive advice/criticism and assist that person in achieving their desired goals/objectives. I know that I am MUCH more willing to help someone who has properly educated themselves the best they can and approaches AAS/TRT with a mature, intelligent, and humble mindset.
Just don’t come on here and immediately act like a goddam idiot, wasting peoples’ time. Don’t be lazy and expect us to hold your hand on every little thing. We’re all adults here.
That wasn’t directed at anyone other than new people coming on here inquiring about either taking an AAS cycle or thinking about TRT, yet immediately revealing to all of us that they have no fucking idea about all of the various hormones they are wishing to take and what they even do. Then of course NOT following the advice they are lucky enough to receive and doing everything THEIR own way. Naturally then blaming others for their failures or worse yet, being argumentative.
Again, I wish this post could be stickied as I think it would be helpful. Eh, probably wishful thinking…happens more and more the older I get.
