Thanks for the advice. However, he says use for just 4-6 months, mainly GH and testosterone. I am already on test. I am 38y, male. I train 4 times per week,2hours every time. but absolutly no results! I will try to avoid deca,eyc. I have already started Anavar, but also no effect, may be I am using a very low dose, 10mg/day. Any more advice will be much appreciated

I am shocked that your personal trainer wants to be your drug pusher. Is he/she certified? I'm diabetic, type II, largely due to 6 years of coricosteroid use, necessary to save my life with chronic bronchitis. While different from anabolic steroids, both are hormones, and disrupt hormone systems, in other words: your whole body. You can research this and find that many professional athletes have gotten cancer and other diseases from anabolic steoids. Roid rage is real; they can cause personality change, shrink your testicles, and other nasty changes. You did not state your sex or age. There are better ways to build muscle. How many hours a day are you training? Are you using machines or free weights? Are you doing at least 40 reps of every excercise? Protect your joints (another thing that can be damaged by use of those drugs) by wrapping your knees, wearing a lifting belt, and other similar devices, and increase your weights slowly. And find a better, more knowledgeable, trainer--NOW.
