For INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. Also, a bit tongue in cheek.

Really?

Testosterone Enanthate
Testosterone Cypionate
Testosterone Proprionate
Testosterone Suspension
Testosterone Blends.

Exogenous testosterone is best drawn up in a 22 to 23 gage needle. My recommendations to a neophyte is 1-2 ccs at most, then injected into the outer part of the quad, in the middle third area, at least twice a week. There's some talk that a bolus of testosterone is best absorbed through the gluteus, but it's problematic to reach around there when you are not experienced.

I would not start with suspension or proprionate, those tend to sting, suspension significantly so, until you are more experienced and have acquired the taste for the sting (which should happen unless you are some sort of candyass) and then in that case, every other day injections can keep the levels both high and consistent.

Expect a few things:

Awesomeness.
Feeling way cooler than Matt Foreman.
Getting big and strong pretty fast
Horniness you haven't felt since you were 15 and grabbed your first titty.
Wanting to take up MMA or maybe Rugby League instead of Ultimate and Soccer.

If I were to begin doing anything you wrote it would be a radical departure from the way I function. I had to do a google search to discover who in the hell Snooki was.

Me too. I thought it was one of those blankets with the arms before I googled it.

you caught me red handed: i was joking.

i just get a lot of satisfaction out of submitting guys who have used steroids, especially if it's a triangle and they're about to black out with their face in your nuts (*cough* chael sonnon v. demain maia *cough* *cough* chael sonnon v. anderson silva *cough*).

back on topic, go play frisbee or soccer or whatever. come back and build strength or endurance when you've actually determined that you have a for reals deficit.

what's more "functional" than doing the actual function?

Does anybody besides Shaf and Derek understand the difference between using T as a PED vs. replacement (hence, the joke)? I'm starting to worry about this place.

Well T alone doesn't do all that much as a PED which why people stack it with so many other compounds. It's really just a way to compensate for stronger compounds that shut down natural T production. However, T as a replacement is exactly why Shaf's comment "Horniness you haven't felt since you were 15 and grabbed your first titty." was so funny. I know two guys in their 50s and one who just turned 40 who are on TRT, and hanging out with them is alot like hanging out with high school guys. They're ready to bang everything that walks past. ...and people wonder why I bring soap on a rope to the gym....
