>>35662438 Bench press only seems to have become widely used after the 40s. Sandow did band resisted push ups for chest. He was always aiming to reach the physique of ancient statues which don't generally have huge chests
>>35664817 Oh stop with the "My way is best! Fuck chest muscle!" bullshit. Victorian era bodybuilders looked great, and so did the Golden era bodybuilders like Serge, Arnold, Frank, etc with their chest shields. Most guys through the 90s started the extremely unhealthy bodybuilding mass monster trends, which is what really should be looked down on.
We're all gettin' gains my nigga, don't put shit down.
For anyone aspiring to be 'aesthetic' it should be a cost vs. reward.
250mg of test per week costs less than a fancy craft beer in many pubs. On even that level, slightly above a HRT dose, you will put on a 14lbs of muscle in a month. In fact, testosterone pinned in your ass works so well you could sit on your ass the whole time and still build more muscle than someone working out six days a week. Don't believe me? Read up the literature on steroids and burn victims or HIV patients.
Sandow was a genetic freak with an exceptionally healthy childhood and living in a world where the food wasn't mineral depleted, plastic pollutants weren't everywhere and estrogen from the female birth pill (like testosterone a sex steroid) wasn't in your drinking water. He had an exceptionally work drive encouraged by the big bucks he earnt during his day.
However, next to your average 'JACKD' gym rat today he would be small. The reason? Sex steroids. Even those who swear they ain't on them are on them.
Want to get big? You need to get on steroids. Anyone who ttells you otherwise is a stupid kid or lying to you to sell you supplements.
[Also, Sandow wasn't natural. At a minimum he supplemented COCAINE (legal at the time and sold OTC as a thinner) to keep lean.]
250mg test for ten weeks with PCT (clomid) would be unlikely to give a healthy man any negative side effects.
The real problem for most reading /fit/ is that they're insecure young men who base their self-construct around being JOOCEY. When you get on roids you will experience muscular development that you have never seen before or will never see again outside of another dose and this can become mentally addictive.
For a kid who thinks all his life problems will be solved if he's 230lbs and ripped, steroids probably ain't worth it.
More bodybuilding friends than I can count swear they are natural even when I can see the pin marks on their shoulders. Steroids have a huge stigma around them. Some guys don't even tell their partners.
