    Also cycling only makes you go bald if you are predisposed to male pattern baldness

    What is the name of that compound people use, which helps keep your hair? Finastride or something?

    Did I ever tell you guys about the endocrinology office I worked in? Supply closet had test, HGH, letrazole, insulin, lasix, and finasteride. Was buurifuu

    But yeah finasteride is great. We give it to brahs with prostate enlargement...they love the face that their hair grows back too.

    Finasteride causes ED.

    I'm predisposed to MPB I think. I've lost a bunch of hair and my hairline's starting to go back a bit but I had so much hair to being with it's not even noticeable and people think I'm crazy when I say that. Not sure if just normal thinning with age, though. I wouldn't want to risk it with gear.

    On Friday I was gonna do rack pulls on the smith machine and some dude was on it doing 1/10 ROM squats on his toes with like 90 lbs. Asked him how many sets he had left "Oh I'm still on it." Asked him again "10 or 15. Wanna work in?" Wanted to punch him in the cunt.

    More importantly, why were you doing rack pulls in the smith machine?

    My only concern is the effect that test has on the heart. In moderate doses, it's gotta be pretty safe, but i'm generally one of those people who is pretty wary of putting substances in their body lol. It would just be so much better to use a low dose of test, bulk for 12 weeks and gain 15lbs and most of it be muscle instead of all that fat gain that comes from bulking relatively fast with subpar genetics. Possibly even healthier as you avoid getting fat.

    OK, but those people are the outliers. Every medication has its potential side effects. It's something to consider, but his post made it sound like anyone who uses fin gets ED.

    You already have test in your body :)

    Are there any reputable resources on this stuff?

    You mean like most starters do? Most guys starting out will do a simple, low test only cycle for 12-14 weeks. About 500mg/week.

    Yeah i was thinking of 300mg/week to play it safe, use it more of an aid to bulking rather than totally rely on it and make sure the diet is spot on.

    CTK, i know you have it in your body which is why it is sort of safe, but even on 250mg i've seen bloodwork suggesting that your T level can be like 1500 or so, and there are androgen receptors in the heart. Extra steroid hormones + hard exercise certainly seems like it could lead to enlargement.

    Fuck that man, 300mg of test e is like 220mg of test or something and then dem impurities from a UGL so even less. You're shutting your natural testosterone levels down anyway, might as well do it with a decent amount.
