Will steriods screw someone like me up?

Im 17 and about 140lbs (10 stone) and just over 6 foot. Ive got 4 weeks from now untill i go on holiday with some girls and i seriously want to do everything i can in that time to beef myself up and gain a lot of weight. I have money to spend on milkshakes, protein bars and even steriods and ive finished my exams so i have 8 free hours each day now that i can use to go to the gym, increase eating etc. However ive been told that taking steriods at my age and for someone as in-experienced as me is a bad idea:

17 years old is WAY too young. And at 140 lbs. (10 stone) and 6 feet, you don't have a solid base to work with and you will lose EVERYTHING you gained immediately after you come off a steroid cycle. As well, considering you don't have much (if any) training under your belt so far, your connective tissue, ligaments, and joints are not strengthened enough. That means your body wouldn't be able to handle the massive rapid gains and you will be highly likely to rip and tear muscles from their joints due to the massive force output increases in such a short time (100 lbs. on your bench in 3 weeks is NOT good for someone with no training experience).


Is this all true? It makes sense but i am so desperate to see immediate results and i will do and spend anything i can to see a decent improvement in 4 weeks.

Thanks for any help you can give.

James

    dont even think about it, 10stone is majorly skinny...just join a gym and get some kinda routine made for you and go for there...gear wouldnt do anything for you at this stage...gear only works when everything else is spot on, training, diet, rest...your mental state belive it or not. gear is not for you

    Yes that quote is true. tbh you sound like the typical teen these days. You want everything and you want everything now. Reality check mate. Things DON'T happen in 4 weeks, in our sport you count in terms of years. Bodybuilding is a LIFESTYLE not a quick fix to get "buff"

    Yes it will screw you up, dont even think about it.
    Your Growth plates are still active and AAS would close those, meaning you wont grow any more, and at 17 you have significant growing to still be done.

    Join a gym, sort out your diet and get a decent routine.
    With that you have almost everything you need to build muscle at a decent rate without major problems you would have with gear.

    If your hell bent on spending your money things that make a difference look at supplements, Whey Protein will help but dont base your diet on this, also Creatine may be an option.

    There are a lot of people on here who will be happy to help you, but a quick fix for long term detriment would not be an option any of us would encourage.

    M8 before you buy anything you should ask on here. Ive been trainingfor six years and four years now with roids. That's classes me as a beginner around here.

    I hope to god you didn't buy your protein drink from Holland and Barret or something like that, if you did you just bought a few KGs of the best fart powder on earth. Look to maximuscle or 'my protein'. My protein best value IMO

    Everyday at my gym i hear of a new kid that on gear (usually an oral of some sort which is even worse). Yesterday i got the heads up a 15year old just started a dbol cycle and his "friend who is huge" told him if he takes milk thistle he'll be fine. I wish everyone went to MT so they were not so misinformed.

    Spadez, even if you took steroids, nothing would happen in 4weeks mate.

    I understand your self conscious, but thats a good thing. Why do you think everybody else here got into bodybuilding?

    Also, your only 17 so you havea lot of lessons to learn about girls.
    Imagine if I told you get a maori tattoo across your face like Mike Tyson will impress the girls. Thats fine for the 2 week holiday, but what about afterwards?
    Are you prepared to go through your life paying for some stupid fcuk up when you were only 17.
    I didn't think so mate.

    Start training now, naturally, and you will have great gains, and an excuse to eat yourself silly.

    Training itself should give you quite a good ego boost just after 4 weeks IMO. I went down to florida at the beech for a week just a few weeks after i started training and i had loads more confidence!

    Oh ****, looks like i brought 454g of "the best fart powder on earth", good job it was only cheap. I went to Holland and barrett since i have one 5 mins down the road (before i saw your post), the guy in there was a total moron and wouldnt even sell me whey protein because i wasnt 18, so i brought this 90% protein powder which tastes so damn nasty.

    I know girls dont think the world revolves around big muscles, but id like to be able to lie out on a sunbed without being ashamed of my body. Well, i wouldnt say im ashamaed, i mean im lucky i have no deformaties or anything like that, but being 2 stone under weight does show. As far as im concerned im more determined to have a body im proud of than anything else.

    Im going to order some supplies from myprotein.co.uk tonight, can you recommend anything i should be looking at?

    M8 when I was 19 I was a skiny as a rake!! Im now 34 and around 18 stone. I carry some fat but mainly its muscle.

    If you want to bulk for cheap you need to do this. Serious!!


    By a huuuuuge bag of Oats. Porridge oats. Not ready break or any crap like that just rolled oats.

    Now, from Myprotein mail order some protein power only. No other fancy bull**** in it like sweetener just raw protein powder. Now get your fav milk shake powder.

    OK, 3 times a day a cup of oats a scoop of milkshake and a scoop of protein. Drink it down, **** spoons and eating it, takes too long. If you haven't much of an appetite eating can seem hard work where if you drink you have swallowed it before you can think.

    Rolled oats is as nutrient dense as pasta!! But goes down **** loads easier. Dont underestimate the power of rolled oats :]

    Also, no matter what roids or whatever you do in the future you may well stay lean. This is no bad thing. Lean = ripped like on the front of mens health. Im a bigger frame all together. I could cut for years and I still wouldnt be the right shape for the mens' health front page (Or back page for that matter :] ) Then again, put a mens health model in a strong man competition and I will lift him and the weights he is lifting if you see my point.

    What Im trying to say, is nature makes you a certain shape. You get to change it a little with alot of hard work. But what is possible even with the best diet and best training is allready wrote in your DNA.

    Also, until your in your mid 20's (as late as that) I dont think anyone can say what shape your ment to be. When your young everyones skinny m8. trust me.

    So, hold your head up heigh fella. Nothing a woman likes more than confidence. Not overly though. But if they sense insecurity they run a mile. Hey listern to me. hehe

    Seriously m8. When your a 34 year old crusty like me, if you can remember this thread and look back to how much power you had before you at 17!! Then you will understand.

    Good luck bud :]

    Oh one more thing m8.

    If you go to my protein use the link from the MT forum home page. Don't mean to sound like a fan boy but hey, MT has given me lots and kept me safe over the years. The least we can do is click the adds we use. Not like were fiddling it. Your actually gonna buy right?

    http://www.muscletalk.co.uk/ > click my protien link

    Alright, thanks alot for all the advice buddy, im going to follow it word for word. Might even start a log on here to keep me going. Trouble is, im at a loss which pure protein powder to get, there are ****loads on the site. I was thinking Whey Protein Isolate (NZ) (CFM) but im probably wrong. Also where can i pick up those rolled oats, are they common in health food stores?

    James

    p.s Yeah ill click on the myprotein link, its only fair since you guys have helped me get on my way.

    Go for whey concentrate 80 (NZ) spade, its cheaper than isolate. Choc smooth flavour is nice if you're getting it from myprotein. You can get a big bag of oats from the supermarket.

    I always get this one m8.

    http://www.myprotein.co.uk/bulk-powders/protein-powders/whey-protein-isolate-(nz)

    It too will taste like ****e, that's what the milk shake powders for :] Rolled oats or Scottish oats (same thing) I always get from ASDA or Tesco's. Cheap as chips too m8. 75p for 1KG I think. Just wish they made a 50KG bag. Look daft at the check out with 20 1KG bags lol.

    As for milk shake powder I like nestles.


    EDIT - just realised PartyBoy has replied. I always get isolate but Partyboy knows his stuff. Go for the concentrate and save your cash. Ive never tried the choc flavour from myprotien. If you get it mate let me know what you think. It may work out cheaper than the seperate milkshake.
