I don't want to ask on anabolicminds, becuase thats like asking a bunch of pot heads if I should try weed. I need an answer from someone who knows what they hell they're talking about. That being said, I started working out at 14, with a personal trainer. I'm now 21... I've been off and on working out for the past 7 years (always completely natty)... recently I worked out for 3 months over last summer, took a break 4 months till december then I started back and have been working out till now. This is usually my schedule, I work out 3 or 4 months then take 3 or 4 off... of course there were peroids of working out for a year or two strait but lately thats what it's been. I have a decent base built, I'm pretty strong... about 200 lb's 6'2'. (I've been on a good nutritional plan) I was 140 in June when I began last summer, so i've put on 60lb's in the past 7 months or so... my body responds very very much to any type of supplement or nutrition... I love working out, my favorite day of the week is leg day, I have shitty chicken legs, and to be honest I always wear pants, becuase I don't want anyone to see them... but I still work them out every week and it's my favorite day simply becuase I enjoy the workout the most... it's fun for me to get in the gym and lift weights. I don't plan on taking any breaks from now until my 30's... I want to be as big as I can possibly be in my prime... mid 20's or late 20's. I know for a fact I will use gear at some point... But my question for you is, when I should I start? I'm turning 22 in june, I see lots of people starting to using around 20 - 21... but I've also heard that the first cycle provides amazing results, I don't want to waste those results to early... basically what i'm saying is, would I be better of staying natty till i'm 24 - 25? maybe getting another year of constant hard work in the gym before starting my first cycle. Or would I benefit more from starting my cycle this summer? and using until I quit (taking necessary breaks from gear). I'm not dieing to be on gear right now, i'm dieing to be as big as I can in my prime, and I want to know if gear would benefit me more if I started now, or if I waited a year or a couple years and then started.
