14 JulSome Misconceptions About Steroid Use
No magazines or media can even speak a word about steroids even to the pros. With the development of the era, we have freedom of speech and more and more people talk about and use steroids. However, there are full of lies and misconceptions about steroid use in professional, amateur, and “natural” bodybuilding that comes from online rumors and internet “gurus” throwing around nonsense.
About Health Problem Of Using Steroid
About using steroids, most of us at least will care about heath. In fact, Perfect diet and supplementation play a huge role in keeping us healthy while on a cycle. If we eat like shit and neglect our health, then we can expect to look like shit on stage. I usually take time off each year. And I take precautionary measures to make sure my health stays on track. Throughout the year, on and off cycle, I get regular blood work done to make sure my levels are in range. With private doctors you can pay for any testing without questions being asked. Once you build a relationship with a doctor, you can be very straightforward with him about what you do. Then you can be monitored accordingly throughout the cycles. Most of the top pros have doctors that are trustworthy. Take into consideration they’ve been doing this for many years. Over time they eventually find a good doctor who understands what they do and works with them, not against them. I’ve been fortunate enough not to have any serious health issues. When blood tests are taken during a heavy cycle, the liver and kidney values can sometimes come back out of range. But after my PCT and after I drop the orals, everything comes back to normal within a few weeks.
Abuse Steroid Or Recreational Drug Use Lead to Serious Health Issues
The only people who I’ve seen suffer from serious health issues are combining steroids with recreational drug use or narcotic painkillers. It’s a recipe for disaster. Usually if they’re taking juice and being smart about it, they won’t have major issues. Genetic factors may also make them predisposed to certain health issues but this will happen regardless of their steroid use. I think any steroid – or any other drug for that matter – can put you at risk if it’s abused. That being said, if I had to pick one area that can get competitive bodybuilders into trouble it’s diuretics. When you get close to a professional level show, the body is already in a vulnerable state at that point.
But people take diuretics for years for blood pressure purposes without any issue. If the drugs are being used intelligently then any risk can be avoided. The only problem is when they’re abused and overused before a show. Insulin is very dangerous if the bodybuilder is uneducated. If you really know what you’re doing, you can use it safely. But if you’re using it for extended amounts of time and not following appropriate protocols you can run into fatal issues. If you don’t know what you’re doing and you take too much you can actually die, but it’s not the actual drug that’s dangerous – it’s the uneducated use.
About Bodybuilders Dying of Steroid Use
About the question of Bodybuilders “Dying of Steroid Use”, it does not happen. This is a big misconception and the most moronic thing I’ve ever heard. The media likes to blow up stories like this and blame steroids immediately, without any kind of investigation into the subject. The people who are writing these stories have no educational background in sport. There has yet to be any kind of proof that the reason for death was purely from steroid use. Then again, when you look at the government officials who made prohormones illegal, it just goes to show you the kind of idiots who are making the decisions about our lives. Of course, there are stupid people out there. I knew a bodybuilder taking 36 IU of GH every day, up to 5-6 grams of oils every week, and 100 IU of insulin everyday. Those are crazy amounts – very extreme. I honestly think the dumbest thing bodybuilders can do is go out on the weekend and abuse recreation drugs while on a cycle. It puts them at a huge risk for health issues.
