Anyone who has been training for any length of time has surely heard about anabolic steroids. It’s possible you’ve even wondered if they’ll work for you. If that’s true, and you’ve been training for more than one year read on. If you haven’t been training for more than a year, or if you’re under the age of 21 you should consider waiting. In either case you haven’t yet trained to your natural potential and using anabolic steroids could damage your future results in the gym.
So, what’s the big deal about anabolic steroids? Well for starters they can help you add muscle, lose fat, and gain strength. They can also b good for athletic performance and for getting in the best shape of your life. Pretty good recommendations for using them right?
They can also come with downsides such as hair loss, acne, liver or kidney damage, heart damage from long term use (anecdotal), testicular shrinkage, and gynecomastia. Don’t worry though, if you choose to buy steroids and use them you’ll also learn that there are ways to protect yourself from the negative side effects.
One recommendation I always like to make is that you buy steroids from a reputable source. I know you can find steroids for sale online, but unless someone you know has already bought and taken these steroids, and can verify they are authentic, it isn’t worth becoming a guinea pig. Try to avoid steroids online if you can and buy from a reputable source from your circle of friends.
Of course many people won’t have access to a local source to buy steroids, so finding steroids online might be their only choice. If this is the first time you are trying steroids, and you can’t find a recommendation for a good online source, you might want to think instead about trying one of the many prohormones or designer steroids available these days. Because they are sold over the counter and are 100% legal they are far less risky, but no less effective, especially for a first time user.
A prohormone is a substance that helps your body produce more of its own natural anabolic substances such as testosterone. A designer steroid is a compound that mimics the action of existing steroids through different pathways. Because it hasn’t yet been categorized it remains 100% legal. And you can find numerous reviews of both prohormones and designer steroids on many popular bodybuilding forums.
Because these compounds are made by reputable companies in laboratory settings you want have to worry about impurities and dosage amounts like you might when buying underground steroids from an unknown source.
You will want to keep yourself safe when using prohormones and designer steroids by following the same guidelines for protecting your liver while on-cycle and for recovery when you discontinue using them. Just because they are legal doesn’t mean that they are extremely potent and should be treated with the same respect you would give to the well known anabolic steroids like Deca-durabolin, Winstrol, Trenbolone, and others.
