Facts You THINK You Know About "Gear"

365 ratings | 8442 views
so much misconception out there - gets worse every year. I am seeing some outright bad information being offered by guys who present themselves as knowledgeable but much of what they advise is actually wrong. I seldom speak about some of this stuff but a few things need to be considered - just to pry open a mind or two.

May i ask, for how long have you been on when you came off?
billy bierbuik (6 days ago)
james are you going to stay off or perhaps going on?
luckjan1 (6 days ago)
Yes you can get very big naturally. Food! I’m 6’1” 245lbs, it’s all about the food and heavy training.

This is my first summer off gear. The longer I am clean the more dumb I think gear is. No matter what research you do before taking drugs everyone’s body reacts differently. Trial and error

The amount of gear people are using is crazy. Looking around my gym there are countless guys with huge bloated guts sticking out with no real gains. Genetics is a huge part of it almost feel sorry for the money they wasted and damage they are doing to their body.

Still a beast. Keep gettin after it James, and take advantage of your body in a confused state to keep bringin the shock factor. Nothing but new challenges for you but that keeps it intersting-new challenges to crush and keep these haters hatin. I enjoy your videos, and I really enjoy reading some of the dumb shit people write from the hate seat. So many experts ....why don't they post some vid's and show us all how great they are?

You lost more like 20 pounds of fat, 10 pounds of water, and 10 pounds of muscle. You did not lose no 40 pounds of muscle in that short amount of time. You do not look that drastically different just slightly leaner. You just have body dysmorphia.
sirbrad4 (1 month ago)
You can't take credit for that size and say that you are "natural" as you still have about 30 years of gear in you. Stay off a few years then we'll see how you look naturally. You don't lose that much muscle that fast either, it takes years to lose muscle and you do not look like you lost that much yet.
sirbrad4 (1 month ago)
So you took all that gear all those years only to get off and be natural eventually anyway? Lol. Pretty stupid really, and no one cared anyway and the only thing that came out of it all was health issues and less years on earth most likely. You should have just stayed natural period, and not worried about being huge and getting attention. Nothing is more important than health.

You ruined your heart with steroids. What's this ' gear' bullshit. If you're so fuck'in honest name the roids you took; the brand name, the amount and for how long. Cut the bullshit for once and all. You're so full of shit it's coming out of your ears. You need a guerilla to kick you right in your fuck'in lying ass. Nutrition? What would a druggie like you know about legit nutrition? Shoot up with steroids then talk about what to eat...............you're fuck'in nuts. WTF?

Brutus 632 (1 month ago)
While I usually love what James has to say......the statement..."This is me at 55 yrs old NOT on gear" when referring to building muscle NATURALLY isn't exactly being truthful to be quite honest...….when in fact a fair amount of that muscle was built while on gear for decades. The only 55 yr old who could say "Look at me at 55" in THIS discussion is a LIFETIME natty. Sorry, but when he says "Look at me, it can be done"...….that isn't fair …..at all. Bottom line is James would look nowhere near as big as he currently is at 55 NOT ON GEAR if he had been a LIFETIME natty.
Brutus 632 (1 month ago)
I am VERY curious to see his numbers because everything I've ever learned (went to Chiropractic school …...then PT so I understand anatomy) says that once production had ceased for such a long time, the odds of the body producing ANY significant amount (of testosterone) after stopping the usage of gear is slim to none. Especially not after decades of use. Bare minimum he'll need TRT for the remainder of his life IMO.

While it’s true that some cheap raws may contain some impurities, i do not believe that it is to blame. Heavy metals are present in many protein powders, supplements and other things we ingest.

No disrespect here, but you are 100% an outlier if you have used gear all these years, and your natural testosterone came back.... Have you had a blood test to see we’re your T is since you stopped???? Are you ever going to consider a TRT dose??

I have an email from this dude a couple of years ago. I told him I was gonna add 250-375 mlgs of deca a week to my 500 mlgs of test that I was already doing. His response was to up the deca to 500. What a hypocrite. I used to love to listen to this dude and do just about anything else he said. It wasn’t until he started to talk about other bullshit religions that saw he himself is lost!

do you suppose you could have got to your current size naturally? I'm not a hater, but since you quit the gear,you have started to come across as a born again body builder. There's no shame in getting old. Just accept you ain't what you thought you could forever be.

Young fellows.....to all of the young guys that are just getting serious about the gym.. this is THE guy that you want to listen to. James is the guy that will not feed you ANY BS. He is a total, 100% straight shooter. He doesn't tell you what to do. He gives advice and guidance from his own experience and research. He isn't going to read a book and then recite what he read to you. This dude knows what he is talking about. I liked what he said about estrogen control. He isn't tell you not to take an AI or anything for estrogen. He is telling you to find out what your estrogen levels are like before you start taking something to control your estrogen. As guys we need a small level of estrogen for 'gains' and sexual function. Young fellows, listen to James.
ZOMBONA (1 month ago)
Two things James. First: This is waaay to soon to give a knowledgeable opinion on how it really is to be off the gear. Try it for 3 years at least. The gear will be gone from your system relatively quickly, but you will still have ghost benefits for a long, long time. These benefits allow you to still build muscle easier than if you'd never touched it. Second: Actually you'll never be able to escape the benefits that the sauce has brought you. It brought you to a level that you obviously won't be able to replicate as a 'natural', but sure as hell you'll always be able to gain muscle easier and way bigger than a life-long natural. I appreciate your efforts at being truthful but I feel you will never truly give it up. You'll be drinking at the ole' fountain sometime soon.

I REALLY like this guy but it is about the drugs. If he truly is taking nothing he will keep shrinking until he levels out he will not lose it all. He still has a very good physique but he should he earned it training hard many years with many drugs. I would really like to see him with nothing. Testosterone is a drug so being on it is not totally off. Chances are if you are at 220 at 10% bodyfat you are taking something. The elite naturals that get polygraphed and drug tested are at the 200 lb bodyweight. Im not a buster been in this game for over 30 years naturally.

Lo.... what a fuckin hypocrite... on gear for years and completely lying about it saying he was on TRT, even showing a video going to his female trt doctor, then it comes out later he’s on 500mg.. supposedly, which I bet is under.. don’t believe a word this ass clown says except yea, a newbie doesn’t need to start at 500mgs
Brack Slaughter (1 month ago)
It has been interesting to watch where the lower T has made a visible difference in Mr. Vest, noticeably the traps less so the arms. My TRT I could never walk away from after finding its effects on energy, mood, confidence/assertiveness (not aggression!) so desirable, but of course, know what you're doing. In my mid 50s, I feel there is no benefit to feeling my age.
Simon (1 month ago)
That’s why I don’t take gear any more. All this underground shit is well dodgy. When I trained back in the day in the early 90s the gear was all legit. Miss those days. I’m from the UK by the way and most of the gear here is underground.

James: pleasure to folllow your channel. When you stopped trt i started. I’m 53, have trained since 1982 with all it took. Stopped drugs in 2004 and became smaller and fatter, but trained 2 - 4 times a week still. The last 3 years i’ve felt tired, lazy, joint pain, no sex drive and even depressed. My heart pressure was 150/85 and began having high morning blood glucose. I’m now doing 250 test e and 200deca weekly and a little aromesan. It is a god send!! I’m feeling great, training is on point, confidence very high - i’m a lot more friendly to other people too. Best is my BP is 130/75 and blood glucose is spot on. I think we need it when getting older. The extra muscle is a small benefit in the bigger picture!!! Gods speed!!!

hey bro love your vids have given this video a thumbs up before i made this comment yes you got big nateral then got bigger on gear. but my question is, you have nucli or whatever it is called in your muscle {musle memory} so you should be able to pump back up to that size nateraly ? the question is can you and me get bigger now nateral. so please let me know when you achieve that i would apreciate it. skippy down under

David Hintz (1 month ago)
I was never on anything and when I turned 40 I started dropping mass big time and I was dragging ass big time as well. I bet I dropped 20% of my muscle due to low T. I worked with my doc and I started dropping weight and behaving myself better. It took almost 3 years, but I finally started putting on muscle without doing much other than doing house and yardwork. It can be done. Obesity, stress, ETOH, bad diet. Those things will all work together to put your T in the toilet. I would expect that for guys who have been on shit, it is even a worse problem. I chose not to do TRT because it was the safest choice for me, and I improved by making improvements in my lifestyle. Your mileage may vary.

andrew 66769 (5 days ago)
St.Fiacre yea they plateau bc they hit the new physical limit of their dosage, if we're going to throw anecdotes. I'm naturally a tall an skinny person. In high school I was 6'2 and weighted 135lbs. I'm now 18 and no longer in school. After studying fitness for 2 years I decided to get started. went from 135 to 160 in about 6 and a half months.( no, none of it was fat, I can see the fibers and separations in my shoulders And chest) And got into calisthenics regardless of the fact that my height is a big disadvantage for me. But I did my homework with eating right and went from a 0lb weighted pull up to 60lb in 1 month or slightly under. I don't feel like I need a lecture on the power on eating correctly and training correctly. I understand what you're saying. But your anecdote said it. Even those shitty roids made my gains that from what I've seen were very good, look like shit. It doesn't seem like we disagree on much. Alot of what you're saying is what im preaching or living.
St.Fiacre (5 days ago)
Its not as black and white,as your making it out to be.Ive never done steroids,but i have 18 and a half inch arms,400 pound bench press,230 pound bodyweight, naturally with the exception of taking creatine. I knew this skinny dude in high school that took an oral steroid that he ordered from a magazine,his bench went from 130 to 200 in a week,his personality changed from a jovial joking person into quite and brooding with an intense stare.But then his eyes turned yellow and he had to off,and he went back to himself in a matter of days. And even the professionals that inject, eventually hit a plateau,then they are fucked,because they have to continue just to maintain. So you are better off learning everything you can do naturally. There all kinds of things you can do to alter your test levels other than doing steroids....and yes,nutrition is one of them.
andrew 66769 (5 days ago)
St.Fiacre if your experience shows that eating right and proper training gives you more progress then PEDs you are injecting something that's not a PED. Hopefully you are speaking off of your experience and you're not a gullible ass kid who watches the six pack shortcuts type YouTubers. At least you got the fact that roid gains are less permenant that natural gains right. And once again, I've had 0 shortcomings with my progress. It's just a fact that people on PEDs are on a completely diffrent level.
andrew 66769 (5 days ago)
St.Fiacre Arnold had a combo of good genetics and roids. You can slack so so much on training and eating and still destroy naturals. There's studies that show that people on a cycle and don't work out gain as much as a natural eating right and working out 2 times a week. You can deny facts if you want. But at the end of the day they will still be facts.
St.Fiacre (5 days ago)
Steroids are the icing on the cake,not the cake itself. If you don't have training knowledge,haven't trained for at least five years and made gains naturally which isn't that hard if you are methodical and consistent.Know how your body recuperates and how long it takes to recuperate.Know how to harness your natural pituitary feed back loop. Then go ahead and do a cycle.But don't bitch to me that you don't look like Arnold...Steroids are temporary...what comes up must come down... Hard work and knowledge is more permanent,even given the fact that we all age,so nothing is really permanent,we all die regardless of steroids. Even though some like to use steroids as a scapegoat for all gains and failures...

Sorry bro I have just come across your channel but are you doing a proper pct eg clomid novadex etc??? Have you had your blood work done as well to see if you are back into your natural range for your age?? I watched Dave palumbo and he said he is producing natural test after doing a major pct so he could get his girlfriend pregnant. That guy is blessed. By the way I'm liking your channel already. Keep up the good work bro. Hope everything works out for you 👊. I'm gonna watch all your videos seems like you're talking allot of sense in this short video 👌
Adolf Oliver-Bush (1 month ago)
Bradley Miller He doesn’t do any PCT’s, or take estrogen blockers. He usually doesn’t get much blood work either. He got off around 400 mgs of Test for many years without anything as an experiment after a health scare. I like him, but things like not getting bloodwork very often are just idiotic.
