Hello! I used to be heavy into bodybuilding. I started lifting with the high school when I was in the 6th grade. By the time I was in the 8th grade I was already benching 285 lbs. By my sophomore year of high school I was about 4-5% body fat, completely ripped and could outlift most of the adult bodybuilders at the locals gyms. I went from lifting about 5-6 hours a day (including 1-2 hours of cardio) to doing nothing at all around my senior year of high school. I was too busy with school to really get back into lifting during my college years, but now that I'm done and have a full time job, I've managed to put a full home gym in my home. My large living rom and spare bedroom are both dedicated to gym equipment. I'm determined to back where I was back when I was ripped and the envy of all my friends, but unfortunately I've put on a lot of fat weight over the years since high school. I have fallen out of touch with what supplements to take and at 30 years old my body has dropped testosterone production so I find it more difficult to get myself motivated. I really long for that "pumped" balls to the wall endorphin filled euphoria I used to experience during most workouts in my younger years. I want it back, plain and simple.
I used to take lots of supplements back when I was in great shape. I took creatine, extract, , weight gainer, ephedrine, a homemade bee pollin, creatine, caffien, amino acid and aphedrine concoction I'd mix myself, and a variety of other assorted GNC products and growth hormones. This was all back in the mid to late 90s during my football years, so I'm assuming the available supplementations have improved over the years and I'm eager for your suggestions.
I'm currently 5'9 and about 235 lbs, so I have the mass already which means I won't need any weight gainers. I simply want to feel great during my workouts and make fast gains in terms of strength and getting ripped. My goal is to get so ripped veins will be popping out everywhere. I suspect this will be a 1-2 year project even with the help of supplements, but I'm determined to make it happen. With my job though I have to be careful about taking anything that will mess with my mood during work hours. If something gets me pumped during my workout thats great, but anything that gets me raging needs to be worn off by the time I go to work each day (in other words, the effects on my emotional state of mind should only last a few hours at a time). Also, being 30 years old, I should probably be somewhat careful with my liver, heart and other vital organs. I was a bit wreckless with my body with everything I took in my younger years. I have slightly elevated cholesterol but aside from that my bloodwork is good. I'm willing to take small risks, including short 2-4 week duration cycles using legal designer steroids. I'm open to all suggestions. Please only speak from your personal experience though.
