im 18, 6ft1, and 135lbs. im wanting to bulk up a littile bit. so i was just wondering if taking prohormones (they are somewhat like steroids only they are brought over the counter and they are legal) would disqualify me from being a cop in the future?


Thank you, Tyler

Tyler, you are to young to be putting all that crap in your body. If you want to bulk up do it the old fashioned way, eat and work out !!!!!!

Bump Cat. come on man, get into the weightroom and pump some iron if you want to bulk up. It's harder, but you'll be stronger and you won't lose your strength nearly as fast.

I would recommend that you not take the prohormones, because like steroids, your body almost becomes "addicted" to them and if you discontinue usage, then you shall lose muscle mass quickly, much quicker than you gained it, and have to deal with all the potential side effects. Follow the advice of Cat_D. Do it naturally through hard work. Protein intake is my best recommendation, but make sure it is proportionate to your body mass.
As for disqualifying you from a LE career, it is highly unlikely because those special tests are of considerable expense to the department, and if they spend the time and money to test for them, it is because you are already showing signs that would discredit you as a viable asset to the position.

Also, consider your body weight to strength ratio the most important. Not your body weight. In high school I was 6'1" 150lbs but was squatting, benching, and power cleaning as much as the guys who weighed in near the 200lbs range. I was just as strong, just could move quicker.

IF you were to take anything extra. and I say IF. Try a protein. At your age i would not experiment with creatine or Nitric Oxide. Wait another year or two before that. No to prohormones though. Sorry.

Great point rc86. Also have to consider that you may not be done growing when you are in high school. When I graduated high school, I was 5' 9" and maybe 145 lbs. By the end of my freshman year of college, I was at 6' 1" and 185 and still growing. Finally topped out a little over 6' 2" and a solid 235-240... Was a gym rat who never used anything more than a little protein and an occasional creatine drink. Never for the other stuff.

Surgery can do that to you, I am sure. I have avoided surgery thus far, but have had to lay off powerlifting and heavy weight routines for a bit..
