    Anabolic Steroids (daily)
I had struggled to gain any weight for years in high school. I desperately needed to get out of my stagnant body type. I ran track at the time. I'd also played football a bit the prior fall.

I obtained anadrol in 50mg pills. I believe I started at 50mg/day to test the dose response curve. I had a world-class athletic facility to work out in where a few of the best sprinters in the world trained, although they were rarely there at normal hours. So I had a great facility, but I didn't focus on the running workouts at all.

I ran the 400. By the end of the 4 or 5 week cycle my time had dropped from a 61 or 62 second race to 58. Anadrol isn't an ideal drug for a 400 runner, just because winstrol would help cut fat and build strength at the same time. I didn't lose any body fat, that's for sure. Fat % dropped because lean mass increased, though.

Final results were interesting. Strength and mass surged. I gained 18-20 pounds. I finished the cycle at 145lbs. The strange thing was, 50mg made insane gains for the first few days. 100mg made a little bit more. I think I figured I had gained about 1/3-1/2 a pound/day. There came a point 3-4 weeks into the cycle where the gains very suddenly tapered off
There came a point 3-4 weeks into the cycle where the gains very suddenly tapered off
and within 3 or 4 days stopped completely. I upped the dose to 150mg for 2 or 3 days to see if it would help, but the scale didn't change one bit. I went down to a small dose of 25 mg/day to ease off a bit. Then I think I took it every other day. But this didn't last much longer than a week or a week and a half. I basically went completely off with no post cycle therapy. I didn't lose a single pound of that weight. That was amazing. My lifts had gone up a lot but it was so long ago I can't remember. I think I started benching 115 and ended up benching 175. I started out able to curl 35lb dumbells and ended up curling 45s or 50s.
I was thrilled with the results. Being so small to start out with, I only ended up at an average weight for a highschooler but the effect on my physique was pronounced. My pecs, well, I finally had pecs, and my chest was moderately cut too because I'd started with so little fat. Girls seemed to have more interest in me as well. One girl, who had hated me, complimented my swimsuit at a pool one day. I also noticed that from my tricep workout that was essentially a dumbell with a football throwing motion on my back, that I could now throw a football like a bullet. It was incredible.
All in all, my only regret was that I didn't do steroids a year sooner and done testosterone with letrozole during the cycle to eliminate estrogen and allow myself to do a long cycle. Additionally I wish I'd used HGH to grow another inch or two. I tried the anadrol a month or two after the cycle but I gained absolutely nothing and gave up on it. It remains a mystery to me.

I bought oxymetholone pills a couple years later from another company and still made absolutely no gains. I have never found any research that explained the immunity my body seems to have to anadrol now. I'm reluctant to try it again as it might just be a waste of money.
