Hi

My aim is basically to get a cover model body. I have been using Creatine, HMB, Glutamine and a coctail of these with whey and simple carbs after a work out. My diet is pretty good and I have seen pretty good results on these and put on about 1.5 stone(21 pounds) in 3 months. I want to get the best results possible Are prohormones the way forward? If so which ones and how do i take them? Should I continue to take creatine etc. As cheap as possible would be good as well as im a student!

If anyone could help with some advice that would be amazing.

Thanks

Hey

Thanks for your reply

I will be 20 in about a month or so. I used to train a bit a few years ago but stopped and have been back training again for the last 4 months quite heavily. I am 6ft, weigh 11 stone (154 pounds) not much bodyfat, not sure of the percentage but im guessing between 10 and 12%. In terms of diet im eating every 2-3 hours with about 150g of protein per day with multivitamins and minerals, keeping fat levels reasonably high to increase testosterone.

I have called a few places that sell pro hormones and offer an advice service but they all suggest different things and they all say there is no need for pct or taking anythng alongside the pro hormones. One offered M1T and said there was no need for any PCT which I thought would be pretty harsh on my test levels and liver but only know what ive read on forums.

Cheers

Hey Guys

Thanks a lot for your advice. I think I will take your advice and stay off the prohormones for the moment and up my protein intake. It is something that I might consider in about a year or so when it becomes a lot harder to make gains.

Do you know where i can find out more about pro-hormones though as it still really interests even if im not going to take them.

Thanks again guys

Hey guys

Thanks a lot for all your advice. I have upped what im eating a lot and i train 5 days a week so hopefully this will be enough. I will definitely wait quite a while before i look down the prohormone route again if at all.

One thing i know this isnt really the right forum but i never really feel that saw in my chest after i've trained it. I start off doing dumbell flye's decline and flat then move onto the bench press and do incline, flat and decline. I usually do about 4 sets of 8-10 reps before muscle failure. Am I doing anthing wrong? I get the same thing with my biceps, i do dumbell curl, dumbell curl (over a bench to prevent cheating) and hammer curls?

Thanks

The weight i use is about the weight i can do between 8 - 10 reps with before temporary muscle failure. So about 20KG for dumbell flyers and about 70 for bench presss. Im not sure what the optimum number of reps is for growth? I am reasonably happy with the gains i've made but its jsut weird that I dont feel nearly as saw as i do in my other muscles, makes me think i could be growing quicker.

Im not sure 5x a week is to much becaue I split that into different body parts and make sure that i have at least 48 hours rest before I work that muscle again. I work chest + Back on mondays and Thursdays and arms + shoulders on tuesdays and fridays. Is that enough rest?

Are the exercises that I'm doign the best ones for these muslces?

Thanks for your help

Hi thanks for all your advice. I will consider reducing the amount of time I spend in the gym when i recover from this flu i've got! Doesnt really answer my question though because even when i havent been to the gym for a week and work on chest it wont be saw. Is there anything i can do to hit my chest harder?

Thanks in advance
