But lets get back to your claims, 'cause I'd like to understand if you're just spouting out anecdotal BB lore or if you have a way to back them up.
There is also a different study on this topic in which participants abstaining for three weeks showed elevated levels of testosterone. Anyone here want to abstain for three weeks 'cuz they ain’t growin’…?
a very intriguing topic indeed. What I'm noticing is that the topic is highly debateable, and it's difficult to answer these questions through observation alone. All this uncertainty is undesirable if one is fed-up with not growing. AAS are known to work. Even people with naturally high t levels resort to steroid use because it constitutes a shortcut.
As we all know, sleep and cortisol control became less important for people on cycle. It's just easier to add strength and muscle while "on." I guess what I'm getting at here is... how much more time, effort, and self-experimentation does it take to successfully address without steroids these hormone "deficiencies" to which the OP points as the reason for stalled muscle gains? We can't even isolate a universally successful protocol for accomplishing this task. AAS are universally successful in accomplishing their tasks.
whats your take on genetic limitations? lack of sleep and rest can fall back of improper diet which was thought to be perfect. could just be another vicious circle!
