I am also beginning to start pulling and tearing muscles even though i have backed right off my gym work. Other than that im healthy and very athletic but cant play my sport because my shoulder wont heal for me. Do you guys think steroids is right for me?
    No, don't use them until a bit older... Roids arnt fairy dust, you don't just "grow" and become god like lol.

    Advice- 18 years old

    I have spent a lot of time researching AAS, particularly the ones about taking them too young. I'm 6'3'' roughly 235lbs right now. I've been working out consistently since I was 14 and was really athletic growing up (I use the term growing up lightly, obviously still quite young). Besides growth and hormone balance, is their anything else I should be aware of before I consider starting a cycle?

    Appreciate your feedback!

    Great post. Been researching a lot lately and very tempted to do a cycle. Was thinking 500Mg test-E a week (12 weeks), 30mg oral-turanibol daily(week 1-4), 0.5mg Arimidex daily throughout and clomid for PCT 40/40/20/20.

    I'm only turning 24 in a month, but I have a lot of friends that I seen personally blow up from AAS, one friend going from 140lbs to 185lbs. Solid gains. Even my younger brother did a cycle and had awesome gains, though he lost it all by stopping training and not eating right.

    My question is this: Is 24 even too young? Am I still too small? I come from a family of very small stature and even being 140lbs (Up from 125lbs) has been some good gains. Definitely a hardgainer as well, kind of a short ectomorph.

    Anyway this post has really got me thinking a bit more. Might wait another couple years.

    I feel that using steroids at a young age is too easy, first you got to have the money because black market are expensive, i was a gym rat at 16, and some of my high school hot heads did have daddy money to buy steroids . They got big fast and massive, and yes very impressive, but after there cycle they got small real fast too.

    I started at 138 pounds at 5 feet 10 when i was 16 and by the time i was 21 never used i was a solid 204 pounds, i never lost anything either.

    I got put on TRT i am now 39, i feel that when you truly love bodybuilding, lifting weights and feeling that pump the formative years are the best, you cannot waste this using drugs. Eating 6 meals per day at 1000 calories each to get that mass going, getting stronger in the gym those are amazing feelings.

    If there is one thing i would like to go back too its that time, i am glad that i have spend my teen age years in the gym.

    Now i am in a new ballgame, and i beleive that steroids has its place in the older athlete. Because when well done TRT can give you back your youth and make you feel like when you where 18 years old again. Testosterone is such an amazing hormone.

    If i was younger and knowing what i do now i would study in all theses hormones and try get get a degree in the medical or endocriologist to help out people.

    When growing older is where steroids start to shine and really make sense.

    Has for the supplements reference i dont beleive they are that useful, glutamine will not increase GH that much and been taking ZMA for a year now not sure if its doing something.

    I rather go the melatonin way cheap supplement with amazing benefits.

    Eating a good diet eliminates the need for supplements.

    At 20yo your to young to start using aas. Better off getting your diet dialed in really well and waiting a few more years. Don't want to do any permenent damage at your age your endocrine system is still developing, not worth it.

    Come over to the nutrition forum and I'm sure we can help you meet your goals.

    people here are way too sensitive about age...when did 25 become an absolute criteria?

    brb no one wants to waste the best years of their life dieting 24/7 and hardly look like they lift
    brb gaining confidence early on, nailing job interviews, being more social, making more friends and connections, meeting more girls etc etc
    brb no one cares about being huge when you're old
    brb going on trt in your 30s regardless
    brb 90% chance you don't even notice sides if you know what you're doing

    come on guys lets be real here

    hey devlgod, im starting my 1st cycle im 19. ive done enough research to know that steroids used to be MUCH more complex and dangerous and worked better. *the legal ones of course.. * anyway, what about the steroids that are legal now? or prohormones ? such as rpn havoc? they are muchh more safer than they were when you took it. clone after clone they took the good stuff out . dont you think ill be good taking this in 2012? lol

    Hey everyone. Just been thinking about AAS for a while now. just havnt known the way to go about it. I didnt play sports in highschool, but i did do rodeo for a while. And my jr year i did powerlifting just because all my buddys did, but that was only about 2 months then i went back into off season and started rodeoing again. After highschool, i went to work in the oil fields and havnt worked out any since highschool. i have been out of school since 09, and ill be 22 in august. im 5'10-5'11 and weigh around 160. im about to join the Air Force and im just looking for that extra push to get me ready. I just started running, or well trying to run, and getting ready to work out. But over the last few months, it seems like my "want to" level is going away. i dont have the will to get active or anything. i hope this is making sense. Im just really looking for something to boost me up and get me motivated and pumped up and maybe help me get stronger and filled out a little befor i ship to basic. ill have about 3-4 months to get ready. Due to me leaving august or september. So any advice please? im not a real built guy at all. Please dont rag on me or anything, im just searching for advice and a opinoin.. Thanks for the time and help.

    thise made me laugh..sorry
    one of my favourite sayings is "how can you expect to grow on roids if you cant grow without"

    the bold part... why dont you try actually working out more often? and also if you did some research on working out you could make better gains

    stuck at 160... lots of tuna isnt a diet, it may help but also look at your ather macros like carbs and fat

    whats your bodyfat and goals?

    Great Read, made me reconsider how much longer I need to wait to get a cycle started.

It took me almost 10 years of training drug free to achieve those results...now its time for the gear though!
    i was this exact height and weight when i started training and i hit 185 in 2 years drug free, genetics people.

    Any chance we could get D00fys post cleaned up, updated and stickied? I typically browse the current threads and and see quite a few people asking questions that could all be answered by the OP's 1st post here.

    Any old timers willing to collaborate with one another and get it going?

    Or maybe it's already been done and I just haven't seen it yet.

    i am 18 1/2 :P
    does this mean doofy started taking aas when age of 18 1/2, i thought we need to be atleast 25, 18 to 25 is very big difference.

    oh yea, didnt saw the date.

    im still confused about this 21 year old thing, this topic say 21 is ok, but people encourage 25 yr old.

    so if this topic is wrong, why make it sticky?

JMO , but wait, get some good mature solid years in the gym under your belt then decide when the time is right. I beleive under 25 is too young, need to reach your genetic peak before AS.

    eat 6-7-8 times a day,getting a surplus amount of calories , train hard , and sleep well ! I've gotten from 120lbs to 170 lbs in 2 years of me training,just with Protein supplements/mass gainers and pre-workouts, and one time I took creatine. Im 5'8-5'9 20 years old. I plan on getting 10-20 more pounds naturally.

    If you do them before 25 or before 5+ years of hard training you are retarded IMO.
