What are your workouts like... what rep ranges do you stay in. How much do you bench with regularly
High intensity training, as heavy as I can go without sacrificing form. Rep ranges that work for me while lifting heavy would be 6-8 for upper body (sometimes 8-10 depending on what I'm doing), and 12-15 for lower body. I believe in finding what works for you personally. There's no cookie cutter routine that's a one size fits all. I've tried everything in the past 19 years I've been doing this and I discovered what works for me but I have no idea if it would work for you or someone else. I used to think Arnold was full of crap for advocating super high volume, until I realized that's just what worked for HIM. I personally can't do high volume with upper body and still grow. Legs are a different story. Tbh, I can get away with not training legs and my legs are still bigger than majority of guys out there. That part is genetics. I can't say the same for upper body. My upper body genetically is trash and if I skip upper body for a week I notice an immediate lack of fullness.

I don't bench with a whole lot of weight. I do 315lbs for reps. If I took some time off or I feel my central nervous system needs a break, I might even only do 225lbs for reps until I feel ready again. Most of my friends put up 405lbs and more with strict form. I can't do it without sacrificing form. If I were powerlifting, it'd be a different story. I can max out at much more. But that's not my goal.

You can tell he never did a real diet. You should be able to see complete separation of all muscle groups if body fat is low enough. And the fact that he's using all those steroids means he should have no trouble holding onto the muscle if he were to do a real diet. People are generally lazy these days and think everything is drugs. Glad to see most posting here are actually much harder working and knowledgeable.
The pic I posted was natural, so I am unsure where the comments come from as for separation sure but it’s also genetic, I personally want to be bigger and thicker , the t shirt I am wearing is a 3xl and it’s tight sure there is extra bf% but that comes with a long term bulk, I have equal or more mass than anyone posting pics , some of you guys are definitely in great shape though

You made a thread asking for opinions on your cycle, and you posted a pic of you natural instead of enhanced? Post pics of your "mass" that's supposedly "equal" to the muscle I had when I took 4th place at my last show in the summer. And you missed my point about separation - the detail only comes from dieting, not drugs. I've included a pic of me as a teen when I didn't even know much but I knew how to diet. See how even at age 17 I had separation and detail that you didn't in your pic? My point was that you can get what you're aiming for without even going the enhanced route. Even in Classic you don't need it. I would understand if you wanted to compete in Men's Open though. But you are nowhere near polished enough to even really need gear.

For mass, I'd even go so far as to say you need to get back to where you were in the 2nd pic you posted - that was approx 11% body fat as we can see abs then. Once you get to the point where you're at now (1st pic), you become insulin resistant. I'm not sure how well versed you are in all of this, but I work as a medical professional and I can tell you that it is much easier to put on muscle when you are insulin sensitive with low bodyfat versus when you're insulin resistant at a much higher body fat percentage. The weight doesn't even matter, it's how you look. I look bigger at 190 shredded than I ever did at 235. It's all illusion anyway.

Wrong site and forum for this man. If I were you I’d go back to the drawing board.

Also, OP if you’re going to run a cycle, drop all the SARM bull****, drop the EQ and get a panel to figure your base stat line for bloods. After you should drop all long ester compounds, and switch short esters. If this doesn’t make sense to you do more research. Before coming in with a post of a cycle, most if not all AAS forums that give actual knowledge and not biased or unbiased opinions will demand pre blood panels before giving you advice. A post like this would get you run off in a heart beat. This is why most individuals have health issues while using AAS. Not dogging you in any manor, but giving you real advice if you decide to go further with this.

As for diet, that’s a whole other ball game. AAS and diet run hand in hand. AAS are a tool to your frame, not the gate way to being “jacked” or “shredded”. If your diet isn’t on point before taking your first pin, put it down and get your diet right and work toward using what you have. Your lifestyle no longer belongs to chasing tail and partying, as this too will hinder your use as well as cause major health issues during cycle. This is a dedicated life, not some free ride. We work very hard to ensure/ maintain great health, optimal training, and a phenomenal physique.

That is far fetched. Testosterone is used in the medical field as a replacement therapy for lack of natural test. This is determined through blood work panels, which your primary usually will take this blood work and pass it on to an endocrinologist if he deems you below natural levels for your age. With that being said, if you feel your levels are low and you have symptoms of low T, go get bloodwork.

Now if we are using these as performance enhancement drugs (PEDs) there are numerous benefits, as well as health risks. Testosterone alone will help promote fat loss, but is not the magic pill. Testosterone will help promote muscle growth through elevated levels of protein synthesis and nitrogen levels. Elevated testosterone through supplementation will make you feel a sense of well being, it’ll improve sex drive and will give you a boost in self confidence.

Again, AAS are a tool to your physique, not a gateway or easy way. Nothing is easy about taking steroids. Period.

Dude said he just wanted to get bigger really. Why not just take follistatin and eat some cabbage $ broccoli? It’ll basically do the same thing. DIM in those veggies is what does the magic imo. Can see less fluid retention in my face after I eat them.

You can’t compare DIM and the effects of AAS. That’s apples to oranges, two different brackets. DIM is an anti-inflammatory (to a certain degree) and an “anti-estrogen” in very high doses, especially in comparison to some SERMs or AIs. DIM has numerous health benefits, but to sit and say it’s the “magic” vs an AAS cycle is limited knowledge. OP is already mid way or closing in on the end of his cycle if he did it anyway. I’d like to see how it went for him, and if he actually benefited from it.

Only done 1 cycle before, odd thing is I am bigger now than when I was last on cycle but that was coming up on 2 years ago...
But you will probably loose 50% of gains unless you run a trt dose in between blasts
Lmfao.. I love the dbz reference.

Creatine has no effect for the first 30 days from what I understand
Yes, I've heard that about vit/mineral supplements too.
B12, Boron and Mag. malate affect me immediately though. Its been about 3 weeks I've been off supplements. I'm about to start again this weekend. Every few months I take a break. I'll start creatine this weekend too.
