    i don't think so. i've heard only hgh really helps with injuries, and even then, if you weren't on it when you got hurt, by the time it works, you'd have been better on your own.

    with winstrol , it builds more ligaments, but they are much weaker than normal, so its kinda counter-productive

    I would do it for healing/building, but that's just me.

    Ive told this story here before. My buddy tore 3 upper pec tendons from the bone on incline bb press, 495 lbs. The surgeon told him if he were running deca it may not have happened. Also, told him deca was the only AAS proven to not only strengthen connective tissue, but speed healing time.

    Google this and you will find some studies. That's good enough for me, although some will still say, AAS does not heal connective tissue. They can live in pain.

    Personally, i'd hit up some physio therapy before i'd touch roids for that reason. But that's just me...

    eq is supposed to be slightly better at promoting collogen synthesis than deca . test has been shown to inhibit collagen synthesis at higher doses though so i wouldnt run too much of it. primo and anavar also increase collagen synthesis and speed up healing.

    Steroids will not help including winny and deca , these cause dysplasia of collagen fibrils which decreases tendons tensile strength.
    There is no evidence that HGH will help repair torn tendons either.
    Natural repair would be your best bet, although corticosteroids can help, in the first 2wks after administration the tendon will be weakened further.
    I'd adjust your training to aid in natural repair.

    I would lay off training for a bit or at least work around the injury, also wouldn't touch any kind of AAS but HGH does help with repair IMHO.
