I was a teenager with low test, without understanding doctors, and without a way to get TRT. There are just as many if not more (in my opinion) health risks to low testosterone, and in addition to that life with high test is much better than life with low test.
So since all the doctors in this area ignored the research I showed them, generally talked down to me, and were not willing to even do follow up diagnostic tests to find the causes of my low test, I chose to take it into my own hands. Because my LH and FSH were high, but my testosterone was low I came to the conclusion that I was likely primary hypogonadal with the best solution being TRT. So since I was a powerlifter, I had very easy access to everything I needed.
I began with self administered TRT and then because it would still be unethical in my mind to compete drug free while on testosterone without being on a program prescribed by a doctor (even though I was at medical doses) I figured I might as well cruise and blast and get some performance benefit as well.
All that being said, I would have used anyway. My situation just fast forwarded my game plan by a few (say 5 or so) years. I do however think it is ridiculous for anyone who is not competing in something to use. If you don’t want to walk on a stage, sign a multi million dollar contract with a team, or set some records in powerlifting why bother? Spend money on something, gamble on the stability of your HPTA, and assume the legal risk for what? A little more pussy because your arms look a jacked 15 inches? haha. Average people’s goals can be achieved with average methods. You don’t need steroids to have a good body, or be jacked as shit. If I just lifted for fun I wouldn’t go through the trouble.
Also natural guys are superior huh? Think you are superior if it makes you more comfortable. Most of the best athletes juice, but that is not what makes them the best. The best athletes get to the top of their game, and at the top one stumble will put your competitor ahead. Even the slightest advantage becomes crucial. If it came down to signing a multi million dollar contract or not, any sane person would be willing to cram a needle in their ass.
The best will always do whatever it takes to be the best. In sports, school, jobs, everything. Sorry you don’t have that kind of drive.
