๐Ÿ’‰ My take on steroids ๐Ÿ’‰

Posted by Eddie . on

Anabolic steroids are a major topic in the bodybuilding community and are often seen as taboo. Any serious lifter also knows how prevalent they are, even for the lifters at your local gym who youโ€™d assume donโ€™t use them.ย  During my time as a bodybuilder, I have never used steroids or any drug that is used to enhance muscle mass or promote fat loss (such as SARMs or Clenbuterol). The furthest I have gone is taking creatine and amino acid supplementation (the kind you find at Chemist Warehouse).ย  On my tiktok (and in person) I am often questioned (and accused)...

Here are few common tips I use to stay consistently lean for at least 6 months of the year: Recognise that you actually need as much food as you think: Typically when we eat, the last 20% of food we consume is not needed for sustenance and is either consumed out of boredom or pleasure.

This concept became very apparent to me when I wanted to get lean but I was with a partner that loved eating sweets and junk food. Whenever we were together, sheโ€™d be eating junk food, whilst I...

๐Ÿท Do thermogenics and fat burners really work? ๐Ÿฅค

Posted by Eddie . on

I started taking fat burners (also known as โ€˜thermogenicsโ€™) this year because I wanted to see if I could make my process of staying lean easier.ย  But what are fat burners? Basically theyโ€™re supplements that boost your metabolism, increase fat burning and reduce appetite. Hereโ€™s my experiences with them. I definitely donโ€™t think theyโ€™re necessary because I achieved sub-10% body fat at least 4 times before I started using them. Iโ€™ve found theyโ€™re good at keeping me awake (they typically have caffeine) and suppressing my appetite (at least psychologically). But honestly I canโ€™t tell if theyโ€™ve actually increased my fat...
