The question of product integrity is always central in the minds of BM customers, “Can I purchase safe products from this source?” The virtually anonymity of internet sites coupled with traditionally high provider turnover rates has made answering this question even harder in today’s society. The BM is filled with “scammers”, individuals who simply set up shop to dupe customers out of money with no plan or intention of delivering on the promised AAS. These are actually the good guys, those who promote the once bitten syndrome and scare many would-be buyers/users away from further attempts at steroids. At least they have the decency (used lightly) to take your money and run. Numerous dealers run repackaging scams in which very cheap steroids are placed in expensive product labeling and sold at a premium. These less expensive forms of AAS produce greater side effects, which can be particularly dangerous to women who think they are buying a very mild steroid only to receive a significantly harsher product. Still others produce imposter or fake steroids, which are often bottles of vegetable oils labeled to look like AAS. Along the same lines are those manufactured under conditions that are far less sanitary than required by the FDA. All of the above hazards can lead to health problems ranging from minor such as abscesses and infections, to major like severe illness and death.
Now pyramiding seemed to work better for quicker gains, thus my not understanding your bad rap on them. I pyramid the weights up like most doing 12-15 reps at the top down to 5-6 reps sometimes lower when feeling exceptional that day. I think the key is in the progression, which many falter. Each subsequent workout my top set would have more weight then the previous workout with whatever reps I could get, not trying necessarily to beat the previous workout because the weight was more. So you are just pyramiding up regularly trying more top end weight, or the same as previous if you are not feeling up to it, but still steadily attempting more weight in the final set for whatever reps over the long run.
