"For years I had been a "junkie"--addicted to prescription and over the counter drugs. used oral and topical anti-inflammatory corticosteroids for 9 years to suppress my eczema/psoriasis. The steroids' side effect nearly killed me and did nothing to cure my eczema. The side effects caused me to swell-up like a balloon and triggered terrible mood swings from deep depression to nasty outburst our rages. Functioning of vital organs such as my liver, kidneys, lungs and spleen were nearly shut down and I thought I would die." Shirley
Road Warrior Hawk passed away at the young age of 46 years old due to what was reported to be a sudden heart attack. Some credited his death as a result of years of steroid abuse and also other actions that he took over the years, but tag-team partner Road Warrior Animal said otherwise during aninterview that occurred in 2011: “Steroids wasn’t the reason that Hawk died. Steroids had nothing to do with Hawk dying. I want to make that perfectly clear. Because when we took steroids in the younger part of our career they were legal and we took them under doctor supervision. They told us that we couldn’t take them anymore, that they were against the rules, so we stopped taking them.”
I’m 35, 6′ and 210 lbs. started really training at 25 weighing 158lbs. I’ll be honest my diet has only ever been great for a short time. I understand the importance of proper nutrition. I’ve always loved being a natural athlete but I’m 35 now and It’s time to consider some alternatives. I’m looking to get in the best shape of my life but I also have no plans on competing in bodybuilding. The gym will always be a part of my life. So if I choose to go this route I doubt there will ever be any turning back. My questions for you…what do you recommend for my first cycle? I’m not looking to get huge over time. And what do you recommend if I choose to continue to cycle in the future? I’m looking to get and maintain a solid aesthetic physique and grow gradually over time and stay as healthy as possible.
