To achieve a beautiful athletic physique, it is very important to follow the rules and principles of a healthy diet, exercise regularly and competently, while also finding time for full recovery and rest. But that’s not all. Nowadays, this set of necessities can often be supplemented by another, albeit not the most obvious, factor – we are talking about the use of sports pharmacology. It is she who can accelerate the desired and expected progress. “Anabolics” help to increase the rate of muscle growth, increase the overall effectiveness of training and stimulate rapid recovery processes of the body even after the most severe physical exertion.
The natural cycle of various processes supporting the vital activity of the human body inevitably leads to the formation of new and the removal of old tissues and cells. In general, these processes can be referred to as “catabolic”. In contrast to them, “anabolic” processes are opposed, the task of which is to form new cells, including muscle tissue. With the stable functioning of the body, catabolic and anabolic processes are balanced. If we talk about bone and muscle tissue, they also undergo continuous renewal processes.
Types of anabolic drugs
Testosterone is the most naturally occurring androgenic and anabolic hormone, as well as a widely sought after anabolic steroid. Its indicator in the male body significantly exceeds that in the female body. Actually, it is he who is the hormone that forms and maintains male secondary and primary sexual characteristics (voice roughness, body hair growth, leadership qualities, courage, muscle gain, etc.). It is for this reason that the proportion of clean muscles in men is significantly higher than that of women.
According to the dosage form, steroids are distinguished into two types: oral (tablets, capsules) and injectable (administered using intramuscular injections). As a result of exposure to heavy physical exertion, it is important for professional athletes to have developed muscles. The best option to achieve this in the shortest possible time periods is precisely the use of steroids.
Bodybuilders and steroids
Modern bodybuilding (aka bodybuilding) “imposes” its own trends. The current representatives of bodybuilding are guided by the trends of rapid achievement of high results. Very often this ends with the fact that even very experienced bodybuilders with experience make a large number of mistakes and rash decisions in pursuit of performance, ignoring the far-reaching various consequences associated with such decisions.
The bodybuilding in which doping did not have such a high significance has definitely remained in the history of the past. In this sport, sports pharmacology has become the basic argument along with genetics. It is hardly possible to become a “chemist for a while”. Having felt significant benefits once, not every bodybuilder will be able, and indeed will want to abandon “pharmaceutical support” on an ongoing basis.
Some principles of conventionally safe use of AAC
- Only regular (constant) steroid cycles will help to build up impressive muscle volumes . Even the most flawlessly planned cycle should end with an equally well thought out post cycle therapy .
Recommendation: try to carry out short cycles of up to 4-5 weeks, after which the break should be from one and a half to three months.
- The dosage regimen should be selected taking into account the state of your health, training experience and the body’s response to steroids. Overestimated dosages almost always provoke adverse reactions and complications.
Recommendation: the cycle should be well planned and organized. Potential side complications should be investigated before the athlete encounters them.
- Bodybuilders “amateurs” quite often unreasonably make a decision about the need to extend their cycle, arrogantly counting on “chance”, being sure that nothing terrible will happen. In some cases, it can really work, but more often it happens the other way around, so playing the lottery with health is not worth it.
Recommendation: You should always stick to the plan. If you do not have enough experience or knowledge, consult a specialist and do not risk in vain. Prolonged delay in the steroid cycle can have consequences in the long term.
- Anabolic steroids accelerate recovery and create more “favorable” conditions for accelerated growth of muscle tissue, but without proper work in training, without a competent training program, diet and rest, even taking steroids, the athlete may be disappointed in the final results.
Recommendation: during the cycle, you should train in a high volume and intense mode with maximum dedication (of cycle, within reason). You can afford longer workouts. Also, you must take care of good nutrition (consistent with your goals) and rest.
With an illiterate and thoughtless consumption of anabolic steroids, possible complications, often, will not cause a long wait. In such situations, the length of time in the gym will no longer matter. The most common complications are gynecomastia (mainly its initial stages), problems with libido, baldness, rashes (acne) on the face, back and other parts of the body, and toxic effects on the liver. In adolescents, untimely and illiterate steroid use can close the growth zones too early.
If an athlete decides on the use of steroids, he must necessarily consult with specialized specialists, competently draw up and plan his cycle, as well as recovery after it, and be prepared to eliminate and prevent side complications.
