Anabolic Steroids Experiences

Anabolic steroids & bodybuilding experiences

Anabolic Steroids Saved My Life

Saturday, January 27, 2007

This is a long but very very true story. I am now 41 years old and about 3 1/2 years ago I got sick out of the blue. I have been an athlete my whole life and compted as a youth in bodybuilding and powerlifting with out the use of anabolic steroids. I have always avoided them...

...Now back to the sorded story. About 3 1/2 years ago my heart started racing very quickly one night 160 beats a minute. My wife took me to the emergency room where we spent hours doing one thing after another usually involving a lot of pain. When they were done they let me go the next morning and suggested I see a specialist for my heart but nothing definitive.

This went on for about a month till one day my Blood Pressure shot up as well and they admitted me for a three day Cardiac workup. They ran me through a battery of tests and gave me Nuclear Medicine to see my arteries and all was good.

After $40,000 they let me go on my merry way. At that point I was about 295 pounds 6' 2" and the Doctor told me to lose some weight and that was it.

If only it were so simple...

About a week after that I started losing weight and without trying. I had found a Doctor that was willing to work with me to find out what was wrong with me about 2 weeks earlier.

I was losing 20 pounds a week and not trying. I was actually eating or drinking 9,000 calories a day to slow the loss down. They tested me for every disease known to man and nothing. The amount of calories I was consuming was slowing the process down but only slowing it. I was dying and no one could tell me why.

I went to 23 different Doctors trying to find and answer while still working with my one Doctor who would coordinate all the info to try and find a solution. I was sent to have cameras run up my arse: ( I was sent to have cameras pushed down my throat and see what was going on inside. I never thought of this before but I hope they did not use the same camera for both of the events:). I had over 70 pages of blood work done at different time looking for any anomaly.

I was working out 4 days a week before I got sick but my workouts had dropped to 15 to 20 mnutes of Cardio only. I went from Bench Pressing 400 pounds to 135 for 4 reps on a good day.

The whole time people that did not know me thought the weight loss was wonderful and that I looked good but inside my body was literally eating itself alive. I finally bottomed out at 215 pounds and very weak.

They call the disease I have wasting and HIV patients are very well aware of it as it kills them often. I am unusal as I had wasting with no attached disesae. My body just decided it had enough and starteds to destroy itself. I went through days and days on intense crampning as my muscle was literally being eaten away. I was so weak when it stopped I could not work out more than 2 times a week for 15 minutes or so. I had to start out weaker than I was in Junior High.

Now we all have heard about muslce memory and we would think what the heck you will get it back just as quick. Well reality being what it is my muscle memory was damaged as was my entire muscle strcuture as well as my joints and tendons as my body had starved and self destructed for over 4 months.

I became a vegitarian to alter the acidosis state of my body and blood and it helped. I took Enzymes to breakdown food as my body could not and took at least $1000 a month in prescription medicine to help try and balance my body.

I started the climb back up and my Doctor told me that he wanted me to take Steroids to help put weight back on and I refused. I explained that I wanted to do it naturally and combat what happened naturally by eating naturally.

He plainly told me that what happened to me was far from natural but respected my wishes. I will not bore you with the details of the time, that would take us to 1 year ago but I worked out when I could and ate very well.

As of 16 months ago I could work out 3 days a week for 1 hour tops. I was back to benching 225 pounds and weighed 225 pounds. I had gained a whopping 10 pounds. So much for muscle memory. My Dotor knew I was about to turn 40 and still struggling to get back some amount of what I had.

He took a full hour to discuss the pluses and minuses of using anabolic steroids and explained they have been using them for HIV and AIDS patients for 12 years with great success. Allowing them to gain weight and get back to normal lifes.

He went on to say that some of the HIV people have been taking them every week for 12 years without suffering side effects that are often associated with them as they were using lower dosages.

He explained that all we hear about are people that abuse the dosages not about people that are being saved by them. I decided to go ahead and give it a try as I was very depressed about my progrees and my joints ached often from lifting that was not even in my mind heavy. I spoke with my wife about it and decided to give a 12 week cycle a shot, pardon the pun.

By the end of the 4th week using very small doses I had gained back another 8 pounds. Almost as much as I had gained in the prior 18 monhts.

My strength was coming back and my joints were feeling better every day. I was also finding that my sexuality had been affected by all of this trauma and my wife and I were not having sex near as much as before I got sick. All of a sudden she had a new man to deal with. Our sex life moved into high gear and I felt like nothing could stop me. I was on the comeback trail and by using Steroids which I swore I would never do.

Today I weigh 250 pounds and can bench 350 pounds. Not as much as I once could but my joints are still a limitation though much improved. I am squatting again and running. I can work out 5 days a week for up to 2 hours if I wanted. All in just over 1 year.

I am about to start my third cycle and have had a ton of blood work done while doing all of this. I have had no negative effects from this at all. I am off all medicine and can eat meat again and no longer need Enzymes to digest food. I am, in short, feeling like the man I should feel like.

If it were not for steroids my life would still be a struggle, even if I had maintained exercising as my will was shrinking based on my sorry results.

I eat well and work out 4 days a week to give my body time to rest. I respect my self and what I do to my body and could not imagine life without steroids to help me heal from a devastating event.

I will probably have to use them the rest of my life as we found out I produce too much estrogen and not enough testosterone which could very well be because of what happened. We will never know as I never had a baseline to know what they were before I got sick. I take arimidex to block the estrogen and and oral testosterone along with 1 shot a week and my numbers are great.

If you would like more details I have the bloodwork to show what I went through and I am sorry that I am not a better story teller. There is so much more to tell.

If this helps you and anyone else then what I went through was not a waste but a learning lesson, and that would be easier for me to bear than a random event that so changed my
life.

Peace,

Dieting Pharmacology Guide (Part 1)

Monday, January 01, 2007

Of all the obscene four letter words in the English language, "diet" ranks up there as the most despised and hated. As the weather warms, the majority of people want to get ripped up for the beach, contests, or just diet down to look decent. In pursuit of these goals, dieting becomes a necessary evil. I could care less about beaches, but contests I do care about. This article is for all of those who are uncertain about what helpful supplements and drugs to use when dieting off those excess "bulking" pounds. The who, what, when and why of ECA, T3, Clen., and DNP. This information isn't new, but if people didn’t want it, then there would be no questions about it. And there's bound to be questions as the spring and summer months approach.

ECA
ECA stands for Ephedrine Caffeine and Aspirin in one capsule. It's the one supplement out of the list that you can get over the counter at any health food store or nutritional outlet on the net. When it comes to dieting, it's as popular for veteran bodybuilders as it is for newbies. ECA helps boost your metabolism and curb your appetite, which is very important if you are susceptible to cravings and midnight refrigerator runs. Most dosages are 2-4 capsules before breakfast, lunch, and dinner. However ECA leaves some people feeling wired and jittery, so the dinner dosage may not be needed. I don’t use ECA according to the directions on the label, and neither should you in my opinion. The label is meant for people who do not work out the way bodybuilders do. It's meant for the 9 to 5 worker who can't do cardio in the morning, or lift on a daily basis. So taking it before meals is a lot more feasible. When dieting, I take a few before my AM cardio session and then again before my PM workout session. I find this helps me in the morning to wake up and raises my temperature faster than without it. If your gym sessions are limited to one session a day, then take ECA before your training , and then once more before your afternoon meal. I take Metabolift (Made by Twinlab) 5 days on and 2 days off. Most people who constantly use ECA products get addicted to them and when they come off, they crash hard. I would only use ECA for a max time of 3 months whether cycling or not, simply to give the body a rest so that when you use it again, it’s something new to the body. The few drawbacks to ECA are feeling wired and jittery as mentioned above as well as headaches when first taking them. If you’re not used to caffeine, then in most cases it will cause headaches the first few days from the amounts contained inside the capsules. People with high blood pressure or heart problems should not take ECA products.. They also make ECA stacks without ephredrine but with norephredrine. People that have used the norephedrine products report none of the effects normally experienced when using standard ECA. As for the best legal supplements, I'd use Lipokinetix by Syntrax (which has been reviewed over and over here at AE) stacked with an ECA like Ripped Fuel, Metabolift, or Xenephredrine to combat the feeling of fatigue associated with Lipokinetix. With Lipokinetix and any ECA, start off with half the dose to test your tolerance.

T3
No this isn't Arnold’s latest movie, but a great thyroid medication commonly used when dieting. Now, there has been a lot of hype and controversy surrounding T3 and its purported muscle wasting effects. I believe it’s just that, over exaggerated hype. T3 is great to use whether you are natural or not, you just need to use different dosages. Being natural myself, I use T3 with great success because I up my protein the whole time I'm taking it. People often over estimate the amount of protein and food they consume, which leaves them saying "Oh the T3 is why I lost muscle when I dieted." They don't consider that they ate next to nothing when dieting. A lot has also been said about T3's supposed rebound effect. If you haven't heard, it’s another false claim that when you come off T3, you gain a lot of fat. The reason people gain fat when coming off T3 is a combination of water retention and resuming their normal eating habits. Going from dieting and restricted calories to no diet and eating anything you want, your body will rebound quickly because of the influx of calories. If you keep your diet following the use of T3 for a few weeks and then gradually increase calories to your maintenance dose, then you'll be fine. One true statement about T3 is that it does suppress the thyroid when using it. No matter what dosage used, it will still be suppressed. The max time to be on T3 is 6-8 weeks. I know others advocate more, but I'd rather be safe and have a working thyroid after my cycle. Most people use a diamond pattern when using T3. A diamond pattern is where dosages start low, gradually go up, and then go back down to the original dosage. A typical diamond cycle would be:

  • WEEK 1 =50mcg
  • WEEK 2 =100mcg
  • WEEK 3 =150mcg
  • WEEK 4 =150mcg
  • WEEK 5 =100mcg
  • WEEK 6 =50mcg

The above would be ideal for 1) AS users first time using T3 2) Advanced natural knowing the ropes of T3 in and out.

If I were a natural newbie to T3 OR a woman user, dosages would be somewhere along the lines of:

  • WEEK 1= 25mcg
  • WEEK 2= 50mcg
  • WEEK 3= 75mcg
  • WEEK 4= 50mcg
  • WEEK 5= 25mcg

Notice how thus pattern is shorter than normal and the dosages are cut in half. Once again, that’s meant for a novice or a woman. In either case, they should be using this cycle in order to evaluate the effects of T3 on their bodies.

Some advanced T3 and AS users could up the dosages as high as 200-250mcg's during a "cutting" cycle. T3 is a great tool when dieting. If you can get over the unsubstantiated hype, figure out what dosages you need, and don’t abuse it, you'll be fine. One side note, when using T3, I noticed a difference between using Mexican brand Cynomel and SBC's Cytomel. SBC's allows me to use it without losing any strength at all while the Mexican version left me feeling very weak and tired.
