Hey guys! My name is Martin, I am 17 years old (I am not using any AAS and have never used them before, ever and not considering them at my age now, bare bare minimum of 18, but that is still too young imo and I know some people even say after 25). I am a full blown powerlifter, been working out since about 13 y.o., powerlifting for around 2 years maybe. I wanted to ask you guys, what age would be a “safer” place, but not too late to start my steroid use. I was thinking somewhere around the 20 mark, moving into the junior division, because I think the cons just destroy the pros anywhere before 20. I could get lucky, but thats just gamble and I know 20 is also early, but please, consider my stats and that I take powerlifting seriously, I really wanted the IPF squat world record in sub-junior, which is 265kg now I think, but Im not sure if I will be able to achieve that naturally.
Age: 17 (12.23.2000)
Height: 5 feet 10 inches
Bodyweight: around 95kg, I compete in the 90kg or 93kg class, depends on the federation
-Squat, raw without wraps: 230kg single or 222.5kg for 3 reps, which gives me an estimated 1RM of around 240kg, which I would die of happiness if I hit in my upcoming meet (May 12.)
-Benchpress, paused: 140kg
-Deadlift: 250kg, although not the cleanest form, gotta clean it up before meet day
I know my bench and deadlift suck compared to my squat, but at least my squat is okay

I would really appreciate some honest answers and help from you guys, I posted on other forums and one banned me, because I was not 18, but I just need some help/guidance, I do not want to do something stupid that I will regret. I know this would be a big commitment and a very serious decision and I want to be cautious, thats why I started this thread Thank you very much, if you have any other questions you would like to ask me, feel free to do so!
