Steroids in Bodybuilding: The Truth and Myths

Steroids in Bodybuilding: The Truth and Myths

True, bodybuilding is difficult. It’s much more difficult if you’re an ectomorph. You won’t have as many “hurray” moments as your mesomorph and endomorph counterparts, not because you have to work harder and smarter (although that is true to some extent), but because you won’t have as many “hurray” moments. Simply said, you will put in a lot of effort yet not see any results. Or, at the very least, your ‘ectomorph before and after’ photos will most likely show just minor improvements.

What Exactly Are Steroids? Is It Really That Bad? Are They Really That Great?

This is a pretty unsatisfying manner of working out for many individuals, and who can blame them? Many people either give up or begin hunting for the “magic bullet.” This magic bullet is known as steroids in the realm of ectomorph bodybuilding.

When it comes to steroid use, most people just declare they’re awful and go on to list all of the actual and imagined unwanted effects they feel the steroids will have on a slim person like yourself. They’ll start showing you photographs of dead bodybuilders and weight lifters and telling you horror stories about how 5mg of Deca-Durabolin turned a buddy of their friend’s friend into an angry monster with woman’s breasts by Thursday steroids for sale  morning.

Then there are some who reject any negative effects as urban legends, claiming that using steroids is no more dangerous than eating a Big Mac (I guess they may be even righ). They will attempt to persuade you that steroids are not only safe, but also beneficial to your health. After all, they know a man who knows a guy who knows a 25-year-old ectomorph bodybuilder who has been using steroids for over a year and is still alive and feeling better than he has in his life.

The point is that steroid debates are frequently raging, and they are often fueled by personal beliefs rather than scientific evidence. To add to the complication, several businesses have produced legal versions of some of the most popular steroids. Primal Muscle Company, for example, has released a legal version of Primobolan, a steroid intended to boost testosterone levels substantially. Obviously, the legal form is not a steroid in the strict sense of the word (it is classified as a supplement), but it functions in a similar manner, albeit without the adverse effects (or so they claim).

Anyway, back to the “steroid promise land”…
So, should I go ahead and take them? And Here’s Why I Didn’t

So, where do we find the truth? As usual, I’m guessing somewhere around the middle. But let’s not forget about the health concerns that the steroid discussion raises. Would it be a good idea to utilize them if they were fully safe and legal?

Many years ago, I got into touch with steroids and admittedly took some. For a period of two weeks. That is really too little time to assess the effects of the steroids on me in the actual world. But something interesting occurred.
