I agree. Body building has had a steroid problem that they won’t even admit is a problem since the days of Arnold. My advice is to train for practical strength. I think a good initial goal is to be able to lift your body out of any position. For instance, if you had to pull yourself by one arm out of danger could you do it? If you had to restrain someone in your own weight class could you do it? I think a great look is born out of a body that has lots of practical strength. My issue with traditional weights (I’m probably going to anger body building traditionalist but please hear me out) is that they only train you for strength under ideal conditions. Braced joints, on even terrain, lifting very specific amounts of weight all while using economy of structure. What if you are on uneven terrain and need to hold weight in an awkward position that isn’t economical in structure? I think traditional weightlifting techniques definitely have their place but how practically fit are these roided out body builders? I’m betting a seasoned judoka could tie a body builder into knots once he gasses out trying to provide oxygen for those unnatural and inflexible muscles he has. So I think it depends on goals. Do you want to look like a muscle magazine cover model at the expense of endurance, balance and flexibility all while putting your major organs (heart, liver, kidneys etc.) at risk of failure through steroid use? Or would it not be better to develop strength that has practical application? I would stack any military school grad, MMA fighter or boxer or judoka going through a camp, any olympic athlete as more fit than a body builder. I think the term ‘fit’ shouldn’t be applied to body building. With practical strength the good looks will come. Look at Masahiko Kimura in the 50’s. That guy would easily be considered ripped even by today’s standard. So I think pumping iron is basically a waste of time for all but the most vanity obsessed as it offers little practical advantage in physical activity.
The wing sauce is a killer. It’s habanero or watered down anaheim pepper. Better results with cayenne. For more hot, just add more cayenne. Small amount of cream mixed in helps cayenne go down the hatch. Get enough cayenne down and it’s like a nuclear reactor. Combine with b vits, 500+ mg niacin GNC ‘fire burn’ brand and you have energy to lift and alertness and a buzz or high when the cayenne hits your brain. Mega amts cayenne get a warm burn all over your body that loostens you up. Most people can’t down that much due to the hot taste but cream helps when mixed into a paste. It coats each particle of the powder and makes an unusual addictive flavor. It’s like a drug when eaten in high amounts. heaping teaspoon powdered cayenne is a good amount in a meal. Mixes well with soups, beans, protein foods.
Hello John. I’ve been lifting for years naturally and want to start a short cycle of test cyp. I’m also currently bulking. I was able to obtain a 10 ml bottle of test cyp 1000mg/10ml and after doing some research I was planning to do 250mg – 300mg per week and run RED PCT afterwards. I want to keep the cycle short 3-4 weeks since I’m a beginner. What other advice could you give me as far as PCT because I really would like to try a short cycle out but keep my hormonal balance in check in the safiest way possible.
