    You're 19 and taking a test booster?!?!?!

    Post up your diet. It's probable that you're eating a lot less than you think.

    Test boosters are technically steroids it even says it in the P6 info.
    If you never fail, you're not trying hard enough.

    Because its money. What are steroids? Think about the word. Its simply an aid to something that cannot provide for itself. Testosterone boosters are illegal in every decent bodybuilding competition. Human Growth Hormone. What is testosterone? Its a hormone. What do you consider a STEROID?

    whether they are or not (in my opinion they are) wouldnt you feel guilty using them, it would trouble my conscience knowing i could just work harder. The guy obviously is looking at his training from the wrong perspective, cramming as many supps in as possible hoping to concoct the perfect potion to make him grow. Anyways look at your diet get a surplus of good calories and lift BIG, you will grow.

    Steroids, not anabolic steroids though, right?Different type from my little understanding?

    Anyway, your very lean, your probably not eating enough. try eating at least 3200 cals a day (yes, measure it for a week or two, it's boring, but if you want to get big, getting big is a science and by measuring you are going to ensure your boy is getting what it needs).

    I'd invest in a good weight gainer, eat high calorie foods and loads of carbs (and around 140-200lbs protein grams a day).

    Eat 3200 cals a day, see how well this works, I find that 3500 is a good number for me to add slow lean mass.

    Steroid or not, point is you don't need testosterone boosters at 19. Your body is already producing high levels at this age as it is.

    Also, simply put, your workout isn't great. At all. There is NO reason to do chest twice. That's gonna decrease your growth even further. When you lack in a certain area .. you don't add more to it .. less is more in bodybuilding. Get a decent workout of this site such as Dougs 4 Day Split. Also .. post up your diet .. if anything .. that's probably why you've not put on much weight.

    I do get what you are saying, and you are right to think this way, but there is a major difference between test booster and human growth hormone. Test booster are mainly made of zinc and magnesium (ZMA), which are often lacking in our daily nutrition. That combo, which is sold in every pharmacy, helps increasing the level of testosterone in your body because you're giving it the nutriments it needs. When you take GH, you actually take the hormone itself.

    However, you don't need a test booster at 19 years old since your body reached its peak (which normally happens between 18 and 25).

    Also, training chest twice a week, as many others said, won't help. You can increase the intensity by adding drop sets or by cutting the recovery time between sets. A good bulking diet and 8 hours of sleep will do the job to make sure it's growing.

    I dont want to start an augument here but NO. When you take a test booster your taking the hormone. If its anabolic it might be a little different. Animal and many other companies have products that AID in helping your body producing the hormone NATURALLY. The biggest one is Arginine. Zinc and Magnesium are in like every multi-vitamin lol

    i would hardly consider a t-booster a steroid. If you can pull a chemical compound of a t-booster label that even remotely looks a steroid please post it. Pro-hormones on the other hand are a different story

    Just glancing at the list of P6, it contains beta-sitosterol, which is a steroid. It also contains diosgenin, which is a steroid. Whether these are anabolic steroids, not sure, but just looking at the structure, they're definitely steroids.
