Hard gainer: Trying anabolic steroids is your business in today's world, though it may be illegal and cheating. I've been around gyms for decades and most guys who try them regret it. You may do something you regret for the rest of your life, and who wants tiny testicles? Use creatine & a protein supplement first, and remember most people admire definition over bulk.
