“You need to rest, you need the time off. You need to have everything calculated meticulously and know when you can go on and when to go off,” Martinez shared while discussing steroids.
Victor Martinez Reveals He’s Taking 200 Mgs of TRT Weekly, Compares Protocols Used During Career
In a candid interview, Martinez laid out his current TRT regimen. In addition, he discussed his ‘simple rule’ of coming on and off substances for three-month intervals.
“It is TRT so it doesn’t matter. It’s a little loophole of not juicing, I’m on TRT,” said Victor Martinez. “I mean compared with a TRT dose which is 100 milligrams, I mean – I’d probably take probably double that probably once a week. And that’s good enough, again, to do enough, to where you’re not bringing your levels too low. The worse thing is crashing.Once you’re on synthetic – yeah, once you’re on synthetic and you’re on it, I know people want to get off it, but go ahead. Do it. You know, I’d like to see you try it if you have a girlfriend, a woman, a partner, whatever. Go ahead and see how you feel.”
“At the end of the day, nothing beats knowing by having your blood work and knowing what your levels are because that will ultimately let you know what you’re deficient on – it’s – you know, as long as you have your head right because that stuff messes with your head.”
“Oh, it was a simple rule. It was basically three months on you compete, show’s over, you did your post-cycle for a couple of weeks and you had time off. And you train as hard as you could without it. It’s one of those things, we don’t just want to train pre-contest because now you have to set yourself up to go into that contest prep.”“We always did three months on three months off, basically two cycles a year,” said Victor Martinez. “No, they’re doing it all wrong. They’re taking everything, they’re not cycling it right, they’re not having the time off, they’re not clearing up their receptors, they don’t have anything structured, and the thing is, they want to body-build but still want to have one foot out in everyday life. You can’t have both. You’re either going to body-build or you’re not.”
“For me, it was simple, taking test, a cutting agent, and a water pill. Then, obviously, as you got more competitive, you learn more stuff, you knew what to add on. When I first started, the tren [trenbolone] wasn’t around, I think it was Finaject. You used it for about four weeks out and the results were almost three-fold compared to the stuff that’s [out] now. Again, I believe the quality is different now.”“We had the Parabolans… for some reason, the amount that you had to use back then wasn’t anything compared to what people use now,” added Martinez.
Martinez Breaks Down Pre-Contest Diets and Training Styles
Martinez said his diet mostly consisted of chicken, broccoli, and rice. He specified that he didn’t count macros while competing.
“My diet was simple. It was basically, chicken and broccoli, and sometimes, rice. That was my diet. I followed it and no, it worked. I know when I did legs, I had steak. When I did have steak, that was for back or leg days, that was about twice a week. Rice, obviously before bed, never took in any carbs. It was something simplified from my standards because we didn’t calculate exact macros.”
“Try what you can do, see if it works and you feel good – just stick to it. But when you start second-guessing and looking over to the side or the back of you or you see these guys in front of you, it’s like, ‘man, I want to do what they’re doing.’ Listen, it could work for them but it’s a hard learn when you learn it’s not for you.”
