I was thinking hard about taking steroids cause i wasnt improving until i just worked out my daily calorie intake and found out i wasnt consuming enough carbs or protein to promote muscle growth and im very similiar to that kid u spoke of ( 90 kilos and only benched 82.5)
My bench has barely improved much this year either, but i hope now that i have figured out how much carbs , protein and fat i have to consume each day i will get alot better results
I see your point LMD and it's true food is essential, for without it nothing much happens, but...are you kidding, about to take steroids because you "weren't improving." Food is your steroid
I see your point LMD and it's true food is essential, for without it nothing much happens, but...
...but steroids do something that food alone can not do, and that is they make food more efficient. In other words, one can have the same calories or even miss out at times and still make gains due to the way steroids make one absorb food. In a nut shell, you get more for your buck even when you don’t increase the amount of calories, that's a fact ... just ask the animal industry, it's big business you know!
My thoughts are your thoughts Sir and every other sane person's thoughts. Put in the time before taking some time out for steroids and even then, only if you're competing against likewise atheltes who are also partaking in steroids. There are plenty more implications to what I have said, but I think I've answered your question to the point. Thank you LMD.yes i understand, but thechosenone is a beginner and he was planning to use steroids. What are your thoughts?
