Kevin, I just came across tour site; I am really into fitness and lift a lot at the gym. I just had my daughter and started back workout about February. I started with insanity and went back to hitting the weights. I am 5 ‘9 and currently 164 which sounds like alot but I swear I look thin but I am more pear and athletic built. I am not getting the tone as quickly as I would like, am fit looking and have definition, but my body does tend to bulk. What you are saying is I should do less 5 rep of 4 sets for my weight workouts? I do have my own spin bike and do this a lot for cardio, I can squat 230lb right now that is with 5 sets and I end with 230. I guess I train like a man but have been taught this way. I do not want to lift Winnie weights I feel like it dosent do anything
Ive also closely watched ‘non naturals’, some of whom I knew well, many of them over many years. 25 yrs experience tells me its insanity. If you think there’s no trade off you are very mistaken. It take its toll. Put someone on roids (and I do mean any) and watch them age very, very quickly. Perversely they believe they are getting younger somehow, ive heard all the lines ‘gh is the fountain of life’ , its an utterly bizarre statement. ( i studied medicine and also the endocrine system). A trainer at my local gym told me of a ‘new’ ‘medicine’ that made you grow very, very quickly with great strength gains, he had everyone on it. I read medical journals. Had the same effect on the kidneys as 3 courses of roids. Yeah….sounds great.
