Skinny Wanna Be’s and That Supplement Stuff Does Not Work

Skinny guy lifting dumbbell in one handThe other day I posted a couple of articles on Reddit about legal steroids. I got slammed by a few “what I felt were less than knowledgeable keyboard warriors”. I have been using and reviewing many different supplements over the last decade.

In my younger days, I did cycle some steroids for a very short period of time. Testosterone, Primobolan, Deca, and Dianabol, but that has been many years ago. Did it have side effects?

Yes, but they were mild, however, I did build muscle mass, plus I gained more strength. Before taking steroids I weighed in at a lean 260 lbs, after a one-month bulking cycle I went up to 300 lbs. I had decent genetics and building muscle was fairly easy for me.

My cycles were few and far between; after only two small local competitions I decided that steroids were not worth the money or the potential risk. I do continue to use a variety of supplements and have found many to offer positive results to some extent or another.

Who Says Supplements Do Not Work

I admit I love working out,  and now in my late 40’s I can still hammer the weights pretty good, day after day if you are any kind of athlete or just the average guy, training can be harder, our testosterone levels begin to dwindle as well as other key hormones our body needs to maintain muscle mass. I do admit, I am an advocate for supplement use and I always have been, some have worked very well and others not so well, but its just like bodybuilding,  its trial and error. Every day I go to the gym I try to shock the muscle, always changing my training routines.

I am not s big as I used to be, in my younger days at 6 ft 2inches I weighed around 280 lbs and had a 32 inch waist, people always asked me what I was taking, I would take a variety of supplements that I would purchase from the back pages of muscle and fitness magazine.

About 6 years ago I ordered a tub of a Creatine supplement, at that time I was 40 years old and living in Mexico, since the company would not ship here I had a friend bring it down, it sat on the desk in my office for about a week before I took it home and began using it, for that week that tub of Creatine was the centerpiece of conversation, friends and clients would see it and some comments were “that sh***t don’t work” or how much did you spend on that, what a waste of money.
