Steroids in bodybuilding
Recently, among the people involved in power sports, very often talk about steroids, their benefits, where to buy them, etc. However, many athletes, especially newcomers and amateurs, have no idea what steroids are or why they are called anabolic.
Anabolic steroids are drugs that mimic the effects of testosterone and dihydrotestosterone (male sex hormone). These drugs accelerate the growth of muscle tissue by increasing the synthesis of protein in cells. That is why steroids have become so popular in bodybuilding. Usually, after muscle training, it takes about 48 hours for them to recover, but under the influence of anabolics, this number can be reduced by half.
Accordingly, muscle growth will be two times faster, but given that anabolic steroids block the action of hormone-cartoon, which uses proteins as a “fuel” for muscle work (as a consequence, actually, in the muscles after stress and there are microcracks), the process of their growth can be accelerated even in 3-4 times. Thus, an athlete who uses steroids can gain up to 10 kg of muscle mass in a month, depending on the intensity of his training.
Also, there are such effects as: improvement of endurance, increase in strength indicators, strengthening of bone tissue and reduction of fat reserves. All these are undeniable advantages of anabolic steroids, but they also have plenty of disadvantages.
Many bodybuilding lovers, learning about the wonderful effects of steroids, acquire these drugs and begin to take them actively. In a short period of time, they begin to see positive transformations of their body, but at the same time, they face side effects of these “miracle drugs”.
During the intake of steroids, people become more aggressive, which can lead to inadequate action, some people increase blood pressure, almost every second person has a acne on the face and body, very high cholesterol levels, which in turn can cause disease such as atherosclerosis, at a young age, the use of steroids leads to a stop in growth, as the body switches from bone development to muscle tissue.
After taking anabolic steroids, the side effects are much worse than during administration. As a result of the intake of large amounts of male testosterone hormone into the bloodstream, natural secretion of testosterone stops, and the organs that produce its testicles atrophied. This can cause both impotence and infertility. So it is worth thinking carefully before you poison your body with chemistry
Of course, all this can be avoided, but you need to follow a number of rules that only a specialist can tell you. Therefore, anabolic steroids should only be taken according to the instructions and under the clear guidance of a doctor who specializes in sports pharmacology. After all, anabolics are designed primarily for professionals and not for amateurs. So, before you start taking anabolic steroids, be sure to remember all the above reading.
Maybe it will make you want to take them in general and raise your muscles naturally, or maybe it will just help you to take them correctly and protect yourself from deplorable consequences. But remember that no one can give you a 100% guarantee.
