    Interested in using Steroids

    Hey Brothers,

    I was interested in using steroids to enhance my overall physique. I wanted to get your input on whether or not its a good idea. I'm approximately 5'6" and my weight is 148 lbs. My body fat is probably 10%. I can see the top 4 abs, but the bottom 4 are covered by a layer of fat. I've been working out since high school, but I never really understood the significance of nutrition until about a year ago.

    Gym specs:

    Flat Bench Press (for 10 reps): 225
    Incline Bench Press (for 10 reps): 165 lbs
    Squats (for 10 reps): 185 lbs

    Overall physique: Its getting there. My upper chest and deltoids are lacking. I generally need more mass in my upper body. My abs need to be tighter. Some pics:

    EDIT

    I'm 20 years old. I'm aiming to be about 160-170 lbs of lean muscle. My question really is can I temporarily use steroids to assist me with reaching that goal.

    What do you want to know as far as it being a good idea? You look to have a good foundation. What your age? I ask that because you said you've been working out since high school and I don't know if that was a year ago or 10 years ago. What do you want in a physique? Goals? Do you feel you are going to be doing this for the long haul? And your body fat is more in the 15-18% based off the 2 pictures you provided. 10% is not easy to maintain, especially in someone who just recently realized how important nutrition is.

    You can, but you're risking sterility and erectile dysfunction, not to mention the possibility of not being able to naturally recover and need testosterone injections weekly for the rest of your life just to take a shortcut to gain literally just a few measly pounds. I would reconsider. You can natually gain 5-10 pounds a year at your current stats pretty dang easily.

    agree.. Dont do it. You are at your highest test production levels in your life. Do not halt them, they may never return and your hpta is not fully matured.

    Thanks for your input guys. Coming in I was skeptical about using steroids , at least at this very moment in my life. I'll continue to pursue my goal naturally. Hoping for the best, fingers crossed.

    How long have you been training? You have a good base. How much weight you throw around isn't an indicator of if you should or shouldn't use AAS. As I get older I don't lift as heavy as I used. I focus more on controlling the weight and keeping the muscle engaged the entire lift.

    Anyways, I would continue what you're doing and wait until you're about 25 years old when your HPTA is more likely to be fully developed. It's a risk/reward game we play with our hormones. I did one cycle and said I never would again. Because of that cycle I never fully recovered so now I'm on TRT for the rest of my life. It's a royal pain in the ass but going in i knew this was a possibility.

    While I'm training and busting my ass I don't mind being on TRT but when I'm older and not able to live this lifestyle it's going to royally suck. I couldn't imagine being 20 years old and knowing I have to inject twice per week for the next 50+ years.

    Good posts in this thread!

    Since nobody mentioned it, I think you really have to work your legs. Squatting 185 for 10 is something I could do after a couple months of training, though 225 bench for just 1 rep took me over 2 years to accomplish. Unless of course you dont care how your legs look and just want a beach body, just saying.

    PistolPete33: I've been working out for about 5-6 years. I was on/off and never understood nutrition that well - I wish I did though. I didn't start taking things seriously until about 8 months ago.

    rnsplg: Definitely! I had a sports injury that prevented me from working on my legs for about a year. I've been trying to make up for lost time now that i'm back at it.

    Spend time in the Diet section as that will be your missing link. The guys over there are super knowledgable and you'll get better results in the long-term learning to eat and train than you will ever get with an AAS cycle. The gains will be slower but that means they will be more likely to be permanent.

    You have actually hit the secret and foundation for everything.... Nutrition!. You can take all of the AAS you want, but without nutrition, you will lose all of the gains.
    The guys in the diet and nutrition section are extremely knowledgable. You can learn alot from them.

    If you do one cycle you will most likely want to cycle again. You dont hear of many guys doing one cycle and never doing it again. I would recommend you wait till your mid to late 20's. By then you could have achieved your goal naturally. Maybe your goals change and you dont care about bodybuilding anymore. People change man. What you want at 20 wont be what you want at 25. Just enjoy your youth.

    Same with me, frustrating to not be able to put up weight without tons of pain.

    Way too young and you don't look like you need it yet

    My advice: keep bustin as in the gym, keep working on getting the diet dialed in and reconsider in about 5-8 years.

    I know that's prob not the answer you wanted but long term it's a better plan

    Best of luck on your journey
