The Truth and Steriods Basics
Teenagers, film actors, models, athletes, weight lifters, body builders, power lifters, wrestlers - what do they all have in common? The Die Hard Urge to feel
strong and look incredible, physically.
As building muscles requires hard work and patients their is always the desire to find a magic formula that could give instant results in packing big muscles. The very first things that comes up in search for this formula is "Steroids".
Did you Know: Sergio Oliva used steroids
Bodybuilding World Champion - Sergio Oliva was a Steriod-UserSteriods act quickly, thereby providing greater performance. The increase in energy levels results in better and more workouts. And the recovery time of the body under training is also shortened greatly.
But with a correct knowledge of training, diet and nutrition and a strong will, any
person can succeed otherwise also.
So, suppose if everyone takes the same amount of steroids, as per the theory everyone would get big equally. No, in reality this isn't the case. Each individual will attain a certain amount of muscle growth depending upon on the
individuals body capacity to absorb steriods.
This means that each individual has its own number of receptor sites in the muscles with which a steroid can make the muscle grow and exert its building effects. How many of these receptors are in each individual ? Well this varies from individual to individual.
The last champion of a bodybuilding contest near you might be having large number of steriod receptors rather than being the most hardworking, dedicated and knowledgeable bodybuilder. On the other hand, some people might possess very few receptors for a particular steroid.
That's why they experience very little, if any, growth on a particular steroid.
Another factor that influences receptor affinity is age. The highest receptor affinity seems to occur in late teenage years. This is a
generalization, but it seems to be true for a good number of people. Since there is a greater uptake in these individuals, they are often able to take lower dosages for longer periods of time and make better gains than older users. The truth is, two bodybuilders could take the same steroid stack,
train and eat the same, and one could turn out to be in the Olympia, and the other might never even win a local contest. The difference in how people react to these drugs is incredible.
The following are quite a few side effects associated with steroids usage:
- Breast enlargement.
- Male pattern Baldness.
- Steriod Acne.
- Increased Risk of heart disease.
- Increase in blood pressure.
- Sperm count reduction.
- Increased sexual desire but decreased performance.
- Deepening of voice in females.
- Excessive hair growth in face and body.
- Absence of or abnormal menstrual cycle in women.
- Aggressive behavior and excessive anger.
Believe it or not contrary to what is told all professional bodybuilders use either steroids or steroids in combination with other growth-enhancing drugs. Without manipulating hormones, it just isn't possible to get that degree of muscularity, the paper-thin skin, and the continuing ability to pack on mass, despite having poor
workout habits and relative ignorance of the principles involved that many pro bodybuilders have. Many supplement distributors, in order to sell their products, would have you believe otherwise.
