Welcome! You're in the right place, and I have a feeling you'll like it here. Exposure to ASF members often turns new guys big pretty fast.
Post up a thread in the anabolic steroids forum with your info (height/weight/BF%/lifts/goals) if you're looking for specific cycle advice, otherwise feel free to post around and enjoy the greatest AAS board on the net
I am 5' 8" 170#. Early 30's in age. Out of High school I was 185# and bigger. I am currently trying one pump androgel from a friend a day , and it isn't cutting it. I want something more but not too heavy. I am looking for a beginner cycle.
Welcome to the ASF. One pump of androgel per day is likely doing nothing but suppressing your natural testosterone production, and replacing it with a similar level of testosterone. I'm not surprised you dont notice anything. What does your workout routine look like? Is it different now compared to when you were 185?
