    Stop everything your doing your going to damage yourself.

    AGE
    In humans your Endocrine system is not fully functional until an average age of 25yrs, although the main development is up to around 21yrs it still fluctuates a little bit up to its fully functional age. There is a risk of permanently damaging your HPTA if you take AAS to young and you could end up with symptoms of andropause and HRT for life. Symptoms could be Limp dick, low libido, depression, low energy, low endurance, erection problems and many more but.......are these the types of symptoms you want to have in your 20's?. Believe me its hard to cope with these in your 40's yet alone in your prime of your life.

    Around this age your Testosterone levels are the highest they going to be in your life naturally, so use what you have and don't take the risk of damage, I am passionate about this because ive seen it many times with young kids wanting to looking like their heroes and they think the answer is in an injection/tablet.

    Taking AAS to young can also cause problems with development, one other main problem is premature sealing of your epiphyeal bone and the consequences mean that you wont grow as big as your genetics could allow you to, there is a test which can be done to see if your growth plates have sealed yet but the average age is around 21yrs old.



    TRAINING
    You need a few years of hard training under your belt before even considering taking any kind of anabolic support, people who jump on a cycle to soon without having some quality years under their belt usually results in injuries, it takes time to develop your connective tissue, tendons and nervous system to heavy overload training. Slowly getting your own system use to these kinds of extreme's will only help in muscle growth later on when you do decide to start taking AAS.

    Build a solid foundation for muscle tissue to grow and maintaining and development will be far greater than without it. Many younger guys will start cycling before they have reached their genetic potential which is crazy when a good solid diet and training program will be far beneficial and productive to muscle building.

    Workouts should be mainly focused on basic movements with a priority of over loading the muscle each and ever time you train, increasing your strength and ability to lift in proper form will help with building the foundation for future development


    DIET
    A lot of younger bodybuilders don't know how to eat. Researching and understanding how your own body responds will help you get to your natural limit, the right food at the right time and a full understanding of proteins,carbs, and fats will only help you succeed in achieving your natural goals. Keeping a diet diary will also help you understand the importance of macro, nutrients, calories and should help you see in which areas you could be going wrong in adding lean muscle tissue.

    No matter how much anabolic support you have it will be worthless without proper nutrition, food will help build and maintain your valued muscle weather its natural, cycling or in PCT. Adjusting your food intake and consuming muscle building foods coupled with a solid training program will help you achieve your natural limit and foundation before you start AAS use.

    This area is a huge problem with the younger guys and I can't express enough how important diet/food is when first starting out, post and pre training nutrition are very important and understanding how to load and feed the body will help push growth and create a very natural anabolic environment.

    You need to do an aggressive pct protocol and then wait around 8 weeks and go have blood work done.

    If you have been on and off steroids since 16 and only weigh 169 its very apparent your diet training and everything sucks. you are too young and need to get PCT immediately and stop this madness 1200 mg of test is far to high man.

    You clearly dont have a clue what your taking or doing, your stats are awful and its been pointless you taking steroids . Tuff be true you need to stop everything now and do an aggressive pct and then in 8 wks time go for bloodwork and is how much damage you have done to yourself.

    To the OP I don't know where you live but if you are in the US you can get blood work done for a couple of hundred dollars. Just google self prescribed blood test and places that do blood work without a physicians referal will come up. You should definately get off the juice ASAP and start an aggressive PCT as Marcus said and then get blood work done 2 months after PCT completion. The reason I mention doing it yourself is that if you go through your doctor and tell him what you have done it becomes part of your permanant medical record. Now think about this if your bloodwork comes back and your natural test is shot then and your PCP decides you need to be on TRT the rest of your life we are talking about 400 a month times 52 years we are talking about a quarter of a million dollars for this alone add in other costs and health problems and the number gets over a million real quickly, surely you can see why an insurance company would be reluctant to insure you knowing that you had been juicing since you were 16 since you would be the proverbial house on fire to the insurance company. So my advice would be to keep it too yourself if you live in the USA or other country where health insurance costs are related to risk factors.

    Yeah guy it really does not matter how good/bad your diet is as far as using juice, you are still taking a tremendous risk at your age and your stats clearly show you are in no position to be taking those risks (I am one of the few who if you were on the edge of a pro-contract or other career move that might in some way justify the risks) so just drop the juice and take advantage of the tons of knowlege available on the diet and workout forums and you will see better gains than you will juicing on your current protocol.

    I know nothing of UK healthcare, hopefully you don't face the quandry we do here in the US when in this kind of situation. Glad to hear you are open to advice and are willing to listen. Best luck on the PCT and your labwork.

    Sorry to burst your bubble but your diet isnt fine, your 160lbs and you have been cycling since 16yrs old, your diet is crap and you need to go to the diet section and post your diet and let us all re-design it for you so you can start putting some mass on that frame.

    Congradulations on being a lot more open minded than I was at your age, keep reading on this site there is a ton of good info here other than AAS on diet and workouts etc.
