”What is the point of being natural? What is the point of being natural? What is the point of being natural,” said HarryTheBicepsFlexKilla while waking up from what appeared to be a soul-crushing nightmare.
For half a minute, Harry kept his eyes on the ceiling covered by the mysterious darkness of the night. He failed to recall the rest of his dream. All he remembered was the intrusive question – ”What is the point of being natural?”
Harry turned to the right, shrank into a ball under the orders of the cold air in the room and closed his eyes in an attempt to mute the desire to know the answer. It didn’t work.
”Damn it. I will sleep when I am dead,” Harry said, got out of bed, launched his computer and typed ”What are the benefits of being natural?” with one or two spelling mistakes while his left eye was still half-open. He clicked on the first link and found this:
1.The Balls of Naturals Do Not Retire Prematurely
The universe is a shrewd and cold-blooded businessman. If you want to live under the cloak of steroids, you must pay a price, for it is impossible to do anything without a consequence. Every action has a reaction. Balance is acquired at all costs.
In the case of steroid injections, the cost is the testosterone produced by your body. The male organs and the roids are competing for a single spot. One has to die for the other to live. The drugs always win.
When steroids are introduced to your system, the organism halts the synthesis of testosterone because you are obviously importing from abroad. Ultimately, roids plunder your balls of their precious juice. Recovery of your personal factory is definitely possible, but it requires extreme effort and passing through a dark tunnel of pain.
Lack of testosterone results in a depression of the highest order. It’s not a joke, for you are broken inside. Hormones are the regulators, and yours are malfunctioning. Even with a proper post cycle therapy [PCT], it’s still difficult and many quit because the muscle gains are steadily disappearing during the slow and painful recovery.
How long does it take to bounce back? From weeks to months to forever. If the abuse has been strong, there’s permanent damage and complete recuperation never takes place. For better or worse, many users are stuck with TRT [testosterone replacement therapy] until the end of time.
Meanwhile, naturals don’t have to worry about that because their balls should work as advertised for a long time.
2. Natty Training = Cheaper
Professional muscle construction is a luxurious activity. You need a steady source of income to buy all the toys required for ascension.
Here’s a typical bodybuilding day: Wake up. Inject. Eat. Hit the gym. Flex. Home. Eat. Nap. Photoshoot. Inject. Eat. Movie. Penetrate a hot fitness bunny. Eat. Inject. Upload your workout on YouTube. Check your Instagram notifications. Sleep. Wake up in the middle of the night. Eat. Inject Synthol [optional]. Sleep.
Who can afford to live like that? Unless you have a sugar mama or come from money, you cannot dive straight into the classic bodybuilding lifestyle. It’s too expensive. Besides, many young sultans of muscle do not make a large profit, especially at the beginning of their careers. Therefore, high-level roid bodybuilding is an expensive sport saved for the bourgeoisie and its servants.
At the same time, natural bodybuilding is one of the cheapest activities a man could do. All you need is yourself and a gym membership. Resisting the temptation to pin and buy pointless supplements will save you a lot of coins that could later be invested wisely into something other than muscles.
3. Naturals Experience Almost Permanent Gains
The sleepless hours of the night are exhausting when you are a steroid user covered in tren-sweat. But the real source of sorrow and exhaustion is rarely vicious insomnia controlling your psyche. It’s the fear that one day every single gram of muscle could evaporate into the nothingness. One wrong step and everything – the muscle, the girls, the respect, the power, the money – could be gone and replaced with hospital bills.
Roid users just can’t catch a break. Going off is not an option either, for all gains quickly die once the import of hormones stops. Without massive amounts of drugs in the system, there is nothing to maintain the former muscle mass. Magic and desire work best when coupled with testosterone, I suppose.
The good news is that naturals don’t have this problem, at least not to the same degree. Natural or not, everything that we own could be lost in a click, which essentially means that we never really own anything material in this life. Nevertheless, your natty gains are here to stay for a long time. Even if you stop training for an extended period, the extra natty muscle that you have acquired will remain strong because it’s not built on sinking sand.
4. Naturals are never tortured by the thought: ”Am I injecting what I think I am injecting?”
Like a thunder in the desert, the ring of the doorbell captivated the wandering mind of Johnny completely. ”My testosterone propionate has arrived,” said Johnny, and his body immediately launched the adrenaline reactor at full capacity. Every step, every motion, every thought gained heaviness as if Johnny was dragging a cannonball attached to his joints. He opened the door, didn’t say hello but nodded instead and signed with a shaking hand controlled by uncertainty and fear.
Seconds later, the package was on the table. Johnny cut it open with an old knife and began examining the bottles as if they were pieces of Mars and Venus.
”There’s nothing to it, but to do it. Yeah, buddy,” said Johnny and prepared to inject the goods into his virgin flesh stranger to the needle. Just when he was about to infuse the hormones a horrible thought attacked his consciousness again – ”Is the product really the product? Am I injecting what I think I am injecting,” asked the demon of doubt navigating the logic of Johnny.
Johnny put the needle down, went to his computer, typed ”testosterone propionate” in Google and went straight to images. He wanted to compare his bottle and the substance in it to mainstream photos. He had to be certain that he was injecting what he had planned to inject. The images sort of confirmed his expectations. ”Let’s proceed,” said Johnny, took a new needle, extracted the prescribed amount of test and slowly started moving his hand towards his right glute. From the outside, it looked like he was holding red-hot iron rather than a needle. Moments later, the juice was already in Johnny, but the demon of doubt was still in the building – ”Did I inject what I think I injected…”
5. Naturals Don’t Have To Lie All The Time
The main reason to lie about your steroid use is to protect yourself from the outside world. You are using illegal substances and probably buying them from shady places too. Therefore, it makes sense to limit the spread of this knowledge to a minimum. More people in the loop equal more opportunities for trouble.
Moreover, if you come out and tell the truth, you would be limiting your future. You can’t sign a contract with a supplement company when the whole world knows about your affiliation with the needle. Hiding the truth from everyone naturally becomes the preferred choice.
Meanwhile, naturals don’t have to lie because there is nothing to hide. This makes life somewhat easier and gives you a cleaner conscience.
6. Naturals Don’t Have To Squeeze Their Nipples To Check For Gynecomastia
Steroid users are aware that at any given moment a side effect from the drugs could manifest. They are scared, for each day brings uncertainty and new pain. ”Not again,” says the roid user while looking at his acne with eyes revealing a tormented soul underneath.
One time I was watching a YouTube video of a popular bodybuilder and noticed that the guy was constantly touching his nipples. I guess they were extra sensitive as a result of steroid cycling. This shows the exhausting life of pinners constantly worrying about deformities caused by the drugs. Every nipple sensation feels like an electric shock going through the body. ”I can feel my nipple harden,” said Mr. Roids, and for a second his mind blocked everything around. It was just him and his sensitive nipple.
Does this sound fun to you? The steroid free life is already scary and uncertain anyway. No need to add more painful variables to it.
7. Natties Are Less Prone to Mood Swings and Have More Stable Sexual Prowess
One of the most painful times for roids users is the period in-between cycles. During that gap, pinners lose muscle mass, and their sexual ability decays because testosterone production is a thing of the past. This experience hurts and results in grief and failure to satisfy those who expect to receive satisfaction from you. Believe it or not, some steroid users have lost their wives due to a post cycle lack of libido. It was real love, I guess.
Naturals do not have similar problems because their hormones are relatively stable all the time. You are always who you are.
8. Naturals Have More Freedom
Drugs make you dependent. When you introduce roids to your life, you become an addict more or less. You are adding another element to your life that comes with its own variety of problems and demands. You cannot expect results from the drugs unless you are their slave. Cycles don’t work when you don’t respect the needle.
Your life will have to adjust itself to account for the fact that you are injecting yourself as well as taking a bunch of supporting drugs like estrogen blockers. Little by little, the muscle elixirs will start to eat your freedom, which is already suppressed by other factors anyway.
Simply put, once you enter the drug lifestyle, your life is no longer the same. You have a new master that wants his cut like a dirty cop grinning at the corner of the street.
9. Naturals Don’t Have To Force-feed Themselves
Naturals don’t have to ”bulk up” because force-feeding a muscle into growth is impossible. No amount of food can stimulate protein synthesis past the levels programmed in your DNA. Amino acids are just bricks. More bricks do not equal a bigger house when the architect hasn’t planned it.
Therefore, consuming a vast amount of nutrients when you are natural is a waste because your body cannot utilize the extra for the purposes you want. This doesn’t hold true for roid users, however. Since steroids promote greater protein synthesis, more food could result in more growth.
10. Naturals Look Younger
Steroids age your face by 5-10 years if you are under 35. Many men who are in their twenties and abuse steroids look like 30 somethings. Strong androgens make you look older when you are a young man by giving your skin a ”leathery” look. This effect is reinforced by the negative effect of steroids on your hair. After all, a man looks only as old as his hairline.
