Experts believe that more than ten million people in the world involved in sports take steroids. Out of this large army of athletes who use steroids, only 10% do it right, the remaining 90% endanger their health. This state of affairs is largely due to the fact that the use of steroids occurs without appropriate medical supervision and with a minimum of knowledge on the part of the athletes themselves. Such an amateurish approach to the use of steroids is often fraught with side effects that could have been avoided. Although the spectrum of these errors is unusually diverse, you can still identify the most common of them.
This chapter attempts to shed light on the five most common mistakes made by steroid users. These errors do not allow optimal returns to be achieved from steroids. Anyone who uses or plans to use AAS should carefully review their program. Make sure that you are not among the tens of thousands of athletes who put their health at an absolutely unjustified risk.
The Use of Overestimated Doses
When it comes to steroids, the principle “the more the better” is most often erroneous. Excessive doses have become a major problem for amateur athletes. This practice is hazardous to health. Large doses cause the liver and kidneys to work in extreme mode, which can lead to their diseases. Aromatization and suppression of the production of one’s own testosterone can be excessive under the influence of excessive steroid doses. The human body can only process a certain amount of synthetic steroids. It is not able to absorb excess doses and most often transforms excess steroids into oestrogens. As soon as the receptor sites capture the optimum possible number of steroid molecules, all other molecules are redundant. Such optimal “filling” of receptor sites occurs when not too high doses of steroids are introduced into the body, i.e. All the stories that the current champions take 50 tablets of Dianabol per day and 5000mg of Testosterone per week, let them remain on the conscience of the storytellers. (From the compiler: although 20 tablets of Methane per day and 2000mg of Testosterone per week have long scared most people).
Ignoring the role of nutrition can significantly weaken the anabolic effect of steroids and increase their side effects. Steroids are most effective if used with high-protein, high-protein foods. The only steroid that to some extent exhibits an anabolic effect with a low-calorie diet is Primobolan. The optimal amount of calories consumed during the day when using steroids is 4000-7000 kilocalories (the ratio of proteins, fats and carbohydrates is selected individually for athletes).
To achieve this, additional efforts may be required. Many athletes eat too little to properly make steroids work, and if they consume enough calories, it is often due to too much fat in the diet. Using anabolic steroids can already raise your blood cholesterol and blood pressure, which can lead to heart disease. If an athlete decides to take advantage of the benefits that steroids provide, he must learn that proper nutrition is part of the steroid program. You should always try to avoid the inclusion of excess fat in the diet, so as not to aggravate the risk of heart disease, which is already fraught with the use of steroids. At the same time, it is imperative to ensure that the right amount of protein is present in the diet and that in terms of calorie content it matches the level that helps to achieve maximum steroid effectiveness.
Weight training should be intense in order to induce a state of catabolism in the body. It is in the presence of this condition that steroids are most active. It should be remembered that weight training is an incentive for the “absorption” of anabolic steroids by skeletal muscle cells. Without intense stimulation, steroids will not have the proper effect on your muscles. Training should be systematic and orientate you to work with progressive weight weights.
Incorrect Cycle Periodization
Steroids are most effective and safe when they are used with the right cycle and the right combination of several steroids. As already mentioned, the simultaneous use of two steroids in moderate doses can be very effective and safe. Through testing, it was also possible to establish that in order to maintain the initial positive nitrogen balance, the dosage of steroids must be gradually increased. These facts indicate that during the steroid cycle, a model with a gradual increase in dosage should be used, and that it is best to change the types of steroids at intervals of no more than 8 weeks. Studies also show that side effects, loss of strength and “mass” that occur when steroid therapy is discontinued, can be minimized by using the correct descending cycle. Such a cycle implies a gradual decrease in the dosage of drugs taken by the end of the course. This is done in order to gradually return to normal the production of testosterone by the body.
Choosing Inappropriate Steroids
Many athletes increase the risk of complications and side effects by choosing steroids incorrectly. Anapolon, Halotestin and Methyltestosterone should be considered among the most dangerous drugs. If you think that you need to use these particular drugs, never take them for longer than 4-6 weeks. In addition, when using several steroids in parallel, do not take more than one drug with a strong androgenic effect. It is better to opt for steroids for intramuscular injections: they not only provide a constant flow of the drug into the blood, but also “step over” the stage through which oral steroids lose a large share of their potential capabilities. This stage is associated with steroids entering the liver, as in the liver, oral steroids are largely neutralized, causing great damage to this organ and making the steroids less effective.
Most athletes still do not know that they can achieve huge gains in strength and mass using steroids with a weak androgenic effect. In this case, many dangers associated with androgenic effects of steroids can be avoided. Steroid cycles with the use of drugs such as Deca, Primobolan, Winstrol, Oxandrolone and small doses of Dianabol, as practice has shown, can be very effective. (From the compiler. I note in parentheses that many eminent athletes of the so-called St. Petersburg school do not use strongly androgenic drugs at all, and yet, the results that they show cannot but be fully respected!).
