reasons why people say wait till 21 (usually even older like 25) is because at 18, youre not done growing physically, or psychologically. first off, its unlikely to get supressed to the point where your hta wont fully recover. but if it does happen, you just kissed your golden years good bye because youll be on trt and have mood swings for a long time. secondly, its hard to go back to normal lifting after running a cycle. its like a drug addiction andyou want that next fix (boost). that causes younglings to run cycle to cycle without giving time to recover making the bad **** more likely to happen.
now that thats said, you claiming 2 years hard experience in high school doesnt mean jack ****. sounds mean, but its true. its very rare for a teen to actually know the lifestyle when they havnt even started their own life. yeayou bench pressed, squatted, and deadlift in high school sports. but you orobly dont know your personal bmr, how to count calories (probly havnt even weiged food), dont know how to manipulate your diet to a goal, havnt gone on a full bulk, havnt gone on a full cut, most likely dont cook your own food yet, etc. you didnt even mention your weight or height in your post
the biggest point here, is that steroids have been around for a long tme and arnt ever gonna leave. so why would you risk damaging your perfectly good hpta system at such a young age when you still have so much potential to fill out on your own? if youre so worried abt stuff becoming illegal, then just buy stuff, leave them in a box in the closet, and theyll be good forever. ignore the exp date on pills
now if you post pics, and youre one of those rare teens that really know your ****, go for it. but if you post pics and youre skinny with abs, you will be flamed forever on this forum lol
ps. forget about competitions. there is really no money behind it, its completely for fun. but you have to have the fnds to back it cuz it gets expensive
