    Gained 12 pounds think ill post


    I'm fairly new here, been lifting seriously for about 8 months and made every mistake in the book starting out, mostly lack of understanding of the importance of a routine, I was the guy with no clue that went from machine to machine and did ten reps, no more no less, then went to the next. Now I do 5,3,1 training and for the last 8 months have gone through varying degrees of dedication and better understanding of nutrition, in the last 4 weeks I have gained about 12 pounds and have increased my deadlift from 200 something to 300, not the highest it's been and nothing to brag about I know, but I have the goals in mind and the progress of my workouts is evident, unfortunately I don't have a true start picture, so this will be my starting pic because my goal is 195 pounds. I just wanted to thank AM and all the readers that have offered their advice to a youngin.

    I recommend testosterone cypionate, 600mg a week, split up into two injections no doubt.

    What is your current weight and height?

    great job man, keep with it and don't stop. 5/3/1 did wonders for me, even in just a short time span. 195 will be right around the corner for ya

    I like the ink as well, I've got a half sleeve of knotwork

    Since there's no pic of you then I guess there will be no comparison but my thighs are pretty big and I'm dense as can be. But post a pic and well see, FTR not being a dick just stating want that to be clear

    I was under the impression that 500-600mg a week of test was steroids, I'm not sure.

    Test cyp is a steroid; the dose is irrelevant.

    170 with your jeans on that just came out of the washer without being dried and wearing your shoes and winter parka?

    Jk, but you're damn lean and obv the best thing you can do if you wanna gain weight is just what Wendler suggests: drink a gallon of fatty milk a day. Whether you actually use milk or other foods is irrelevant - the takeaway being get a s***load of calories and protein from a decent food source. Eat and sleep like a bear and you'll get your 195 before you know it.

    Awesome you're making steady progress in your training; 5/3/1 is helping me bust some plateaus right now as well.

    Thanks guys just one question, if I reach 195 before I ship off to boot will muscle memory take over and let me build it back up after or is it better to just bulk after?

    if your bulking up FOR boot camp, I'd advise you focus on cardio, plyometrics and body weight exercises. If you're just bulking because you wanna be big-then no probs at all. You'll get into the swing of things after boot camp again

    Guys let me be clear, I'm not against steroids I just don't see a need for them personally, I understand that they have their place and that the one thing that no one can debate is that they work, but they only work while on them, I want to go military, that rules that out automatically, also they work but if given to an athlete at the peak of their performance the result will be ten times what they are. So no I won't do steroids. That out of the way, thank you for the advice that is viable, for those pushing steroids no thank you but I'm sure someone will appreciate the advice.

    First off thank you for the acknowledgement of politeness, I'm not trying to be a dick, just don't want to do steroids therefore I don't need the advice on them I would rather just have advice on what to do for naturals.

    PS, in response to being too polite how is this?
    "F*** steroids and the ****ers who use them, peace out A-town down *****es".

    PPS that is intended as a joke and not meant to be taken in any other context than what is intended

So no I won't do steroids. That out of the way, thank you for the advice that is viable, for those pushing steroids no thank you but I'm sure someone will appreciate the advice.
    I am military and can tell you that most guys in the service use steroids.

    Not recommending them to you but just saying that being military does not rule them out and the military doesn't even test for them.
