    …. in your decision to stay “natural”, meaning not use any type of hormone therapy? I know there are plenty of guys on here this applies to, and I think it is important to voice your opinion. I’m sure there are others that are considering use of hormones, which could have health and / or legal consequences. Share with your fellow members so they can make a more educated decision.

    I think that the reason I decided to start an aas cycle would be for help getting past my natural physical limits. This is now the 8th day of it. What motivates me is the desire to obtain a more muscular apperance. By doing alot of research on this board and SE I became a well informed person. Educating yourself is paramont. Everyone on boards like these has a strong desire to constantly improve themselves. I don’t see anything wrong with the sensible use of aas. What we all need to consider is that there is so much room for abusing aas. I mean it really isn’t that hard to draw more and more ml’s of juice in that needle(It’s soooo tempting). What is required of all of us is the same disipline we have in the gym and apply it to properly administrating aas. It is very important to take all safety precautions that are avaliable to us. I am not an experinced user by any means. For the betterment of my body I have chosen this route. It’s everyones choice. Aas in my opinion is only a small tool in the whole process of obtaing our ideal body image. Do what you feel is right for you, understand all of the consequences that can result from aas use. In the end the only one who will get anything from aas good or bad is you.

    I have always been natural. I enjoy learning about aas, but there are some important things limiting me. For one, I live with my folks, and I wouldn’t bring anything of the sort in or around the house due to the legal issues. Another reason is that I am a 18 years old. I know a lot of people start at this age or even earlier, but I would like to be leaner and bigger before I did any juice. I am currently 5 ft 8, 197 pounds, 14% bf. I would like to be 215 @ 8% before I touched anything. Not that it is likely that I will ever achieve that naturally, but that isn’t a good reason not to try. Then again if I got my own place, my mind might change about waiting.
    just my thoughts on the issue.:)

    Ive been “natural” for almost a year now, and most likely will be for another year or so.The deciding factor was cuz after 3 years of aas use,I was burnt out and wanted to go the natural route for a year or two and try to put on solid natural lean mass and I needed a break from the emotional rollercoaster that I was on. Another fator was because of my financial situation,I recently started a new career and am making about half of what i was a year ago 🙁 . So far I am enjoying the natural life(feeling very fit,healthy and happy) but am very eagerly looking forward to my next cycle in a year or so.I dont plan on competing again until 2018, So I figure Ill stay natty until the first quarter of 2017 or so…… then its time to hit it hard again and achieve my bodybuilding goals!!!!!!:D

    I have done one cycle in my career, but for the most part I consider myself to be natural (10 weeks out of 520+ is definitely not the majority). I am dangerously close to my physique goals, so I doubt that I will ever need to do them again. I take pride in what I have accomplished, and also in out-performing the “loaded” folks out there. I train alongside national level powerlifters, who I know are clean, and am more amazed at what the natural body can accomplish than the chemically enhanced one. Maybe one day I will do another cycle, I won’t completely rule it out. I am not a powerlifter, though sometimes I think I should be, so a chemical boost may be necessary to bring things together. We will see.

    I actually have done a few cycles. Before my first I was a 400 bencher and 700+ squatter. What I found was due to so many injuries my need for a light cycle is actually medicinal but I struggle with that because I have an addictive personality. A light cycle turns into alot of shit. I commend anyone that is meticulous, focused and determined wiht or without drugs.

    Part of my success from training has been that I have a natural foundation of basic compound exercises. I applaud you. Good luck.

    I am not flaming you when I say this bro….but ppl that use aas correctly and train hard and diet properly and wake there ass up early in the morning or after a long ass day at work and carry their ass in the gym and who work hard enough and save to get gear so they can better themselves at something they truely enjoy to do my friend is ALL them!!

    I do commend those of you who do all of the things I mentioned above and choose to do that naturally. takes the same amount of determination and dedication. I trained the same as I do now when i was all naturAl. i waited til I was 31 and glad I did. I also used and stil use gear as a tool in my training and that’ s it….AAS will not get me looking like I do by simply taking them!

    To each his/her own.

    Peace

    Beefy, go natural until you absolutely hit the wall. There are SO many diet tricks and training tips that can break a plateau, so it is very respectible that you want to keep it natural for as long as you can. It takes a lot to work with genetics alone and without adding some man-made chemical when the temptation is great. You have much to be proud of.
