Lol I’m on the opposite end of the spectrum. So when I started I was 15. My neighbor was bodybuilding and started training me. It seemed like the only way I’d get his size was doing it. This was back before forums and all we had was books, Dan duchaine, and muscular development magazine. I was off and on a bit. But by college I was on everything and just loved it. I have no regrets of doing that while I was in college but I do about when I was still in high school.
In college I stayed cut on tren year around. I loved the attention more then anything. I never had a desire to turn pro or compete. I just loved the sport. I liked the dieting, training daily, the overall lifestyle. Fast forward 20 years I still love it but its not a priority to me any longer. Family & friends is first, work, then gym. I had a blast in my 20’s and early 30’s. It also built confidence that helped my in overall life.
Would I recommend it for someone your age? Can’t say yes or no. Because I don’t know what you want out of it. If I was 20 again I’d do it all over again but higher cycles. About 10 years back was when I finally went over 1 gram test as a base and my growth kicked in like crazy. I remember being depressed and I messaged a guy I looked up to privately on a popular forum and asked him what I was doing wrong. He laughed and said for the size I wanted and what i had available I had to stop listening to the guys claiming low dosages and always have a base of 1gram test a week. Best advice I ever took at the time.
I always reference back to this for people that ask questions regarding how much is too much to take.
And with that being said when I was on 2-3 grams a week of test, tren, mast, some insulin also in there, I looked great. But I felt like shit. I remember having to run a short distance to get something for someone and started having trouble breathing and weezing… I got winded on a couple flights of stairs but hey I was vascular, largest I’d ever been with abs. After that run I decided to cycle back down and never went that high. I just didn’t have a reason to put myself thru that any longer. I didnt even compete.
No one can make the decision for you. But if you do it, your training and diet needs to be in check. Otherwise you’d waste your time.
