    yeah, you're right beast. test will close growth plates.

    that kid looks amazing, though. that's just ridiculous for an 18 year old.

    Thanks to whoever posted the links to the site. He does look great. If he's a welterweight, I can't picture him being taller than 5' 6".

    That's a very "late-70's" physique. That's old-school.

    That's EXACTLY the kind of build I think looks cool. No GH gut, etc.

    If he never gained another pound, he'd have my respect. His arms are just perfect. His proportions, the symmetry, everything is just spot-on per MY PREFERENCES.

    It's almost an "old school" look, with the legs that are a tad smooth, and the narrow waiste that doesn't look like it's holding a pumpkin.

    Rather than saying, "this kid is gonna be HYUUGE", I think I'd prefer to believe that he's just going to keep his proportions/ratios/whatever, and just KILL 5 years from now.

    Seconded, but even if he never did gain another pound he looks 10 times better then the average adult male muscular wize.

    Test does not close growth plates, estrogens do. Proper use of anti-aromatases will combat this.

    There's even ACTUAL research backing this up, not just wild unfounded meathead speculation.

    No, it's not a joke. I am not discrediting this russian kid at all, he looks AMAZING. This is one of best, if not the best, 18 year old physique I have ever seen. He has great balance, mass and definition. This kid has put in a tremendous amount of dedication to his diet and lifting, and it's paid off bigtime. I said I hope he does not stunt his growth because I have read from numerous sources, although most of them were "wild unfounded meathead speculation" however many were scientific journals etc, that test will shut down growth plates in teens. (Hence the reason most sites don't allow under 18 or 21 year old members to even talk about anabolics.) This kid looks like he has tremendous genetic potential, I just hope he doesn't limit himself in any way, we could be seeing his name as a front running bodybuilder in a couple of years.

    That kid is a phenom. I, too, hope he doesn't lose his proportions as he continues to gain mass. He's amazing as is. Kind of reminds me of a young Ahnold albeit with a *slightly* smaller chest. If he keeps it up he's going to be a top name someday soon.

    Interesting, that should once again give the underage pause before attempting a cycle. Doesn't change the mechanism of closure, but does certainly call into doubt any possible way of preventing it. I'd be very interested in the details of the full study... dosage administered etc. to see WHY the anti-aromatases didn't help.

    Bottom line:

    Kids, don't do drugs.


    But damn this kid looks good... he has the development of somebody who's spent years and years working on symmetry and bringing up weak points.

    i'm confused, were we talking about steroid abuse limiting his growing potential or actual lifting. I was refering to lifting, i'm not quite sure about steroid use and it's aftermath of use before growth plates fuse naturally.

    No kidding, I'm still simply amazed. Even if he had 2 arms, he's still freaking massive. But to train like that with only 1, he is now my new hero.
