    Re: reaching max natural limit

    I agree with ah24 there.

    Although i'm just over 6ft 2 and 240lbs, i dont think i've reached my full natural limit. Although i reckon yours gains slow down when your close. You just dont make the gains than when you first start out.

    Re: reaching max natural limit

    i dont think anyone ever actually reaches there limit due to the way the body is desighned. i no naturally things grow slower but they do still grow with maybe more sticking points,

    i have trained natty for years and was still gaining but of course alot slower and ill be honest i turned to steriods late on in life and it wasent cos i stopped growing it was my ego i got sick of seeing new faces in the gym overtake me because in my opinion steriods just help you along that much quicker.

    so i think in your case it depends on how you feel and what you want from bb if you think you want to take the next step and take your first cycle then plan it well for your own purpose.

    unless i misunderstood your post

    Every one has a point where catabolism over takes anabolism, now some people have better genetics( especially some people of african descent).

    224lb at 14%bf gives you about 190lb lean muscle mass which at 6ft3 is not a ton so i would imagine you have a ways to go

    don't you mean non fat mass mate? lol.

    190lb of pure skeletal muscle isn't something you find in a human?



    If you're still growing even slowly I wouldnt say you were at your limit. However, I don't know anyone personally who did truly reach their natty limit before using gear and that includes me.

    [quote=Pscarb;309035]do you mean how far could you naturaly before you used gear??[/quotei

    i to was confused whether he meant this or whether he was asking if he had to be dependant on steroids to reach his max..

    personally i had a really cut and firm body when training natty and still never reached my max and will never no how close i got if it even exists but got to hand it to steroids really after years of hard natty training with slow gains the growth and shape i achieved from steds amazed me and when i look back on the injuries and pain i went through ( and also my attitude against steds at the time) i wished i was educated more and found this site earlier. so thanks to the mods and other members you have made me a happier bb.........and no am not drunk!!

    you can achieve good results natural just takes a longtime, i no i trained for many years natty. i was always the only natty in the gym and the older guys who had been training there for years respected my stance on the issue and never asked me to concider steroids,

    my main gripe was the young lads some still in there teens, coming the gym still wet behind the ears you try to help them with honest advice...two months in to training they no it all and are starting there first cycle some clown devised for them.

    this was my experience anyhow i am on steroids now but i had to gain alot of experience and mature muscle b4 concidering steds.

    plus age is a big factor personally i wouldnt convert to steroids till at least you reached 25 but thats just my opinion.

    Doesnt really apply if your a competitor though does it?
    I mean by age 25 you should be well on your way to top level status if your competing is your thing.
