The question i'm about to pose is purely academic so no flaming necessary as i would never advise this to anyone myself.
I've been wondering about this for a long time. What would happen if you took someone who was overweight like 23-25% bf, was not a regular weight-lifter, and had them do a cycle of of something like equipoise for 16 weeks or so while working out and dieting? What would the effect be on the bodies tissues, specifically the excess fat? Would the extra weight cause a significantly higher incidence in aromatization vs someone who was trim?
How would the steroid affect that person? Would they make more progress over a 16 week period with the aid of AAS than if they did diet and exercise alone?
The question really is whether anabolic steroids can help someone who is overweight but still athletic and active to more quickly attain their goals and recomp the body? Obviously the ideal should be that they get their weight in check first then get their lifting and nutrition habits in place before using but this is purely academic.
