+1 very good response!
I work out Weights 4 days a week w-30-60 min cardio and one morning just 90-120 mins cardio machines..... (20 years religiously)--traveling for work try to get gyms in hotels.
I have started cutting down the power lifting -last few years as i was to big (50 plus jacket over 20 arms), legs tight in the thigh-hammie area... had issue finding IPOD workout armband (most only fit up to 19") --sooo went lighter weights-more reps-- I love lifting arms down to 19 inches and jacket 48L --37 -38 pants (yah could lose 20 lbs too)
never have had the super ripped roid body --- (friends did roids back in 70's -80's badd stufff) I see guys in the gym (some woman too!) super ripped that hardly worked out--- but if u don't do the work u will pay the piper...my friends associates that did 'roids are all bald now other issues--lot 'roid rage problems.. n NOT WORTH IT
I would suggest developing a good workout program --lots protein, supplement with a healthy protein shake with frozen fruit,yogurt added in...
A healthy lifestyle should be the goal with the benefits mentioned in the quote below the reward...

NOTE: Purely as a vanity matter, as a consequence of the discipline, I am a 43" suit jacket and a 34" waist on trousers.
I do not do this for appearance (see caveat above), but because the benefits to health, energy, stress reduction, mobility, flexibility, and strength are critical and even more so as one ages. I have sought assistance in the past from stuff I would not use now. At this point, I stay with a much more limited palette of dietary supplements.
The simple truth is that the OP does not need legal or other steroids to achieve his very limited goals. A simple plan of exercise and diet will help significantly. I will offer tow possibly constructive thoughts:
1. If you detest exercise, get a trainer. The money spent is a great motivator; and/or
2. Do some sports. Sports can be a nice way to sneak in exercise. Find something you like - tennis, handball, volley ball, rollerblading, running, softball, even hiking, etc. - and get into the habit of doign something. Build from there.
