You may have often noticed a person around your locality, who has suddenly grown into a huge shape with gigantic muscular physic. Well not every time steroids do the trick but very often, it does.
Steroids act very quickly by providing greater energy, increasing your appetite and enhancing your performance. The increase in energy levels obviously results in better and more efficient and intense workouts. Also, the recovery time of the body under training is also shortened greatly.
This discussion is not meant for deceiving or misguiding the readers as the truth is any person can get a success in the field of body building strong determination, correct knowledge of training, nutrition, diet and the willingness to succeed and can surely give up using steroids.
The fact that steroids enhance muscle size also often raises an important question that do all people gain the same amount of mass using equal amount of steroids? Well, the answer is NO. This is because the extent of muscle growth depends on the level of training and the intensity of workouts that he is going through. Also the nutrition intake level, the diet that he is taking and the individual absorbing power of the steroid intake determine the level of gain in muscle shape, size and growth. Each individual has it his own number of receptor sites in the muscles. With this, a steroid makes the muscle grow and exert its building effects.
Hence it is evident that the champion of the last year’s body building contest in your locality might have a large number of steroid receptors rather than being dedicated, experienced, knowledgeable, and extremely hard working. Again you also may find some one who takes a daily dose of steroids yet has failed to gain mass in his body. The reason being he has very few receptors for a particular steroid.
Another very important factor that often affects receptor affinity is the age of the person involved. The maximum number of receptor affinity occurs at the late teenage years. Well, this is just a generalization as in most cases it has been observed that a person who has reached his late teenage years has the maximum receptor affinity. Just for this reason a teenager uses lower doses and for a longer period of time and reaps out more benefits from it than the older users. Hence age is a serious constraint for steroid usage.
But one must have a clear knowledge about the possible side effects and only then should he start using steroids only if he is willing to suffer from devastating and horrific side effects.
The first serious side effect for female users is breast enlargement. In male users, usage of steroids causes baldness. The risk of steroid acne should also be taken into consideration. The implementation of steroids for muscle growth also increases the risk of heart attack and other serious heart diseases.
Again it increases the blood pressure which often leads to cerebral attack and in some cases, death. It also affects the male users in reducing their sperm count in the long run. Another effect is the increase in deep sexual desires but decreased performance. Again several cases have been observed where steroids have caused deepening of voice in females and also completely stop or cause abnormal menstrual cycle among them.
Steroids also cause abnormal hair growth in the face and body and increases anger and cause abnormal and aggressive behavior.
These dangerous side effects often induce many body builders to give up using steroids.
But in contrary to what is told, almost all professional bodybuilders use either steroids or other growth enhancing drugs. It is up to you to select which path you would follow for reaching your desired objective.…
