Unless your a professional athlete looking for an edge and payday, I don't get why anyone would mess around with that stuff, but to each his own.
Extreme Measures always lead to Extreme Disappointment!
Like you said I felt great every morning and confident in myself. (I had little guy syndorme) at 18 years old I was 6'3'' and 141lbs lol, did my first cycle at age 27 now I'm 36. I usually did around 2 cycles in a year (10 weeks at a time) sometimes only one cycle a year due to work being busy and couldn't get to gym as much as I want.

I used an andro product for a short while in the late 90's when it was legal.
I love strength, health and fitness and have a true passion for it, but at my stage of life I measure my progress and gains against myself and my past history, so I have no real reason to use anything.
I've never felt tired, low on energy, or any of the other symptoms people complain about. In fact, I feel better, stronger and have more drive at 37 years old than I've ever had. I've never had my test levels evaluated, but I would be very surprised if they weren't naturally normal to a little higher.
For those of you who have used...where do you get your cycle? Just know someone? Online? And what made you choose the cycle you did?
KEEP CALM AND CHIVE ON!!
Honestly I haven't ever done any of the "stuff" wish I did though. I wish I could find a Dr. to supervise and regulate it if I could do that I would be all about it. I could only imagine the kind of monster I would be if I could get some gear!
Anything and everything. Proud, no. Part of the lifestyle, yes. Can def be used safely too if you're smart about it which means regular bloodwork, proper ancillaries, and basic health supps. For you guys running PHs, that's just a designer steroid before it's ban that wrecks your HDL and liver values.

Can´t even get that stuff over here (at least i would not know where to ask)
And to me its cheating and not sportsmanlike at all
Please take note that because of the rising prices of the arrow manufacturers I can do no more warning shots !
Well, I'm a 55y/o with low T, so yeah, I'm on a prescribed dose of Androgel. Been a gym rat all my life but never got into steroids or HGH. I must say, I feel better now than I have in years with no detrimental side effects, yet. Not sure its affected my shooting my bow but the wifeu is getting a little annoyed with me. Lol
Never took them and my arms are just right under 17 inches now

They will definitely make you feel like you're "in rut" all the time. best way I can describe it.
Very good thread!
I haven't but did look into trying a cycle a few times but never pulled the trigger. When I was in my mid 30's my blood work showed my testosterone to be lower than average and I could def tell. I have worked out since I was 17 and had great results back then, now I just eat right and take supplements like protein, creatine, Tribfolia and a multi-vitamin to try and maintain a somewhat athletic appearance. After I turned 30, I have not been able to gain weight while eating right and exercising, I still want to try something but do not have the time to research nor do I know anyone that can guide me down the right path...I will be turning 43 here pretty soon, would like to be able to put some extra lbs on without adding fat but fear my joints wouldn't be able to take it after all the years of weight lifting and sports...shoulders, elbows, back and knee's are already cranky enough as it is! lol

i played professional baseball for one year in the independent league, i myself never have an thankfully i didnt because after playing college ball and indy ball for so long and seeing a high % of players taking it and looking and talking to them now their bodys breakdown no matter how healthy you are, and the thing is when you get older it forces you to take anti-flammetory shots the rest of your life
its scary stuff, i almost took some but retired do to elbow problems and didnt want to have major surgery and have problems later in life...i have 6 friends who took and they are young and have major side effects already
those who are taking it i would stop, if your trying to get buff, their is other ways to get big, like eating a bunch of food and protein which is the healthy way
Yes, on and off since I was 22. My cycles have all been basic low to mid dose test. Highest was 600 mg per week. Right now im doing 400 test e a week and 80 mg anavar. I feel great while off cycle now days and amazing while on. My natural test levels off are in the mid to high 600's and while on I like to stay close to 3000, man does my wife get tired of that haha. I have no problem recovering. I do it for myself, because I want to. I have no other reason nor do I need one. I try to minimize weight gain and shoot for strength while on. Last cycle I gained 12lbs on 300 mg test per week, kept 9 after pct. I have always been the kind to feel if I can get good results at lower end dosages then why go higher. is it safer? maybe is it cheaper? definitely
Plus my blood pressure is actually lower while on cycle, probably due to the N2guard I take.
For those that have or are using. How/where did you get info on what cycles to use that you trusted? I mean there is a ton of internet experts out there but how do you know what to trust?

those who are taking it will regret, you might feel great now but just wait 5 years, you will give your left nut to go back in time to not take them, especially for the tool bags who are taking it just to get stronger
its different when someone is getting payed millions or trying to make millions, but they all still regret it
for example, my best friend is on the Fort Worth Cats indy baseball team, Julio Franco who is 55 just signed with them a couple weeks ago
my buddy called me up and talked about him and all his speeches he has gave, and the one thing he said he never did was steroids, hes 55 years old and still can hit bombs...its all natural strength, he said he knows guys abut 10 years younger than him who took roids in the bigs who were famous, and now they can barely get out of bed with out daily b vitamin injected shots and inflammatory medicine every single day
i myself ive seen it and its a tragic ending, it really does breakdown your muscles
you have got to be a complete moron if your doing it just to get bigger if your not playing in any professional sports
