    Athletes PLEASE HELP!!

    Hello Everyone,
    I am 24, been lifting for about 10 years now, weigh 175lbs, 5'11, 8% fat. I've been browsing forums for few weeks straight trying to find an answer, but to no avail. I have a solid base in bb and powerlifting, wrestled competitively in college but never did much running.

    In about 2 month I have to do a 5k and complete it under 18 min. Right now I am at 20 min. Have been on intense training regiment (running 4 times week, intervals, long distance, sprints e.c.t. and lifting weights for endurance in between, light weight, many reps, short rest in between.
    I have been pretty much stuck at 20 mins for the past 4 months. Looking to do some performance enchancers. I need something that would increase endurance and stamina, with manageable side effects. I have looked into some of the cutting compounds/ stacks and here's what I found out:

    Winny - sounds like what a lot of competitive runners take, increases strenght and drive, but I've read about horror sotries about sides, especially for joints, cholesterol and liver (even injectable form). I also heard its a very dangerous compound by itself

    Equipose - heard great things about how it increases RBC content (but doesnt pretty much every steroid?) which helps with edurance. It also increases aggression, thickens blood, rarely has gyno cases, and makes you want to eat like a big - but overall a very mild steroid when it comes to the body. What is it stacked with?

    Masteron/Anavar - Strength+Lean Mass+pumps. (alongside test of course) - I read these are great cycles from cutting but how good are they for running/endurance? Also, im concerned i might gain some mass if i use test and that shouldnt be good for running

    Also, if I go winny or eq route, do i stack it with test as well?
    Which of the above options (or combination thereof) (or other options if I missed any) are best in order to significantly increase endurance/stamina. and possible put on a couple of pounds of pure lean mass.
    Testing and $ not an issue.
    I'd really appreciate some feedback.

    steroids will not help much in a 5 k. unfortunately you have to stop lifting heavy for a while until you run your 5 k, that is you have to run 6-8 k every 2 days for 3 weeks and lift light weights twice a week. then after those 3 weeks try to time yourself on the 5K . ( of course doing that you will lose some muscle mass and weight , you probably need to lose 5 lbs total). then back again for the next 3 weeks run 10K every 2 days and lift light weight twice a week. then try a 5 k. Then for the last 3 weeks or so run 3 times a week , a couple of 10 Ks and a 5 K ....for the last week before your run just go for a couple of 5 ks , do not run 3 days before the race.
    ephedrine combined with aspirin will help you on the race day, but be careful about ephedrine just a very small dose and only on race day.
    good luck

    I have done a few 5k's in my time. I stick mostly to marathons though. Getting down to 18 minutes should be no problem for you in 2 months. First off rest more. It is more important for endurance than in weight lifting.

    If I were looking to drop 10% of my time in 2 months for a 5k this is what my training would look like.

    1st month:

    Monday and Thursday -

    AM - Sprints. 1/2 to 1/3 mile sprint pace, then same at slower pace then repeat. 6 - 8 times.
    PM More sprints same as above.

    Tuesday - Saturday

    AM Long run.

    AM 4 - 6 miles at 5k pace or best you can do.

    PM 3 -5 miles at 5k pace or best you can do

    With one month to go

    Monday, Tuesday and Thursday

    Sprints

    AM 1/3 mile sprint, 1/2 mile slow then repeat.
    PM same as above

    Wednesday and Saturday

    Long run

    AM 4 miles at 5k pace
    PM same as above

    7 days before race

    AM 5k run pace as best as you can
    PM 5k run pace as best as you can

    Short jogs everyday till 3 days before. Rest till race.

    Plenty of stretching starting right now.

    Oh and I would drop the weights right now. The endurance gains from running far out weigh the endurance gains that can be had from weights.

    Magnesium and Zinc Supplements
    Eat lots of Beets.

    Good luck!

    when i was running winny, i would get back and calf pumps so badly i couldn't complete 1 mile. that's fairly common.

    5k in under 18 minutes is a hellaciously fast pace for 5'11 175. I agree that you need more rest in your endurance workouts though. check out crossfitendurance.com. the short course workouts should help you.

    it sounds like your runs are adequately varied and intense. your mechanics might need work. if you kick-heel plant-drive, you're going need a miracle to break that 6 min barrier. you either need to research proper gait/posture and get a video camera to record yourself, or someone that knows what they're looking at to record you and both of you watch it and discuss.

    And best part is that albuterol is not a steroid.

    If you really want steroids go with straight test...

    And albuterol for sure

    You Wont get tired when your on albuterol your lungs will love it

    "IF" he was going to use a bronchodilator like alb/clen/eph he shouldn't wait until the day of the race.

    He wouldn't be ready for any unwanted side effects or at least the increased heart rate. Last thing he wants to do is pass out or bail out of the race.

    This is all hypothetical of course

    I don't see AAS helping all that much with a 5k, maybe a low dose of test to help you recover from your training and the albuterol sounds good too. The test will also help you hold muscle while you focus your training on endurance running, I'd lower your workout volume considerably and focus just on the 5k for now

    Well, I'm 36 and cruise on 200 mgs of test weekly (for medical reasons), and can run a 19 min 5k. Get your hematocrit around 48-50, and run sprints twice a week, with 4-6 mile training runs, get used to running hard after mile 3, when your body says there's nothing left, get more out of it. Rest for 3 days before the race.

    Regardless of what these fuckers are saying, total test around 1200-1400 ng/dl will help middle distance running. Test will not give you mass at this dose and especially won't if you don't eat shit loads of calories.

    But seriously, 18 minutes won't win very many races, and is it worth it? At your age, unless you have another reason to do PEDs, why not just stay natty and train harder? JMHO.

    ^^^you run 19 minutes not because of test....you might run better without test
    test will not help in a 5 K , ethiopian women who are as thin as a toothpick can run faster than you ...
