On this site we have exposed tons of fake natural bodybuilders as well as their addiction to anabolic steroids. We also don’t advice people to mess with anabolic steroids for recreational purposes. It’s not needed and will probably just complicate your life. However, we don’t hate steroids. Steroids are perfectly fine in our book.
Just a tool – nothing more nothing less…
Steroids are nothing more than a tool – you can use them to build a house or to kill yourself. By itself its not bad nor good. Everything can be harmful to the body – even good food. If you eat a lot of it, you will experience some side effects which you would probably classify as not particularly pleasant.
So, what are steroids good for?
In general, steroids are used in medicine to treat a variety of different diseases. In this section we will focus primarily on anabolic steroids due to the nature of site. The most used form of anabolic steroids is the synthetic version of the male hormone testosterone. This type of drug has been part of the doctor’s arsenal for a long time – since the 30s of the last century. According to some sources even Adolf Hitler experimented with testosterone injections.
Today, it’s quite common for doctors to prescribe TRT (Testosterone Replacement Therapy) to men over 40 years of age. The idea is that as you age your testosterone decreases and as result you become more vulnerable to diseases, lethargic and life starts to look worse and worse.
In the video below you may see a short reportage by a mainstream media which reveals the increased reliance on anabolic steroid to stay young and fix the mentioned problems. The man in the video has bigger muscle than what he had in his 20s and is probably also much stronger as well. Pay special attention to his arm at: 1:38. The cool thing is that he does not even exercise that much, if at all. That’s evidence that anabolic steroids are highly effective at what they are supposed to do.
In this next video you can see a man who swears by TRT and basically believes that anabolic drugs made his life so much better – more muscle, more strength, better focus…
Note: His whole channel is dedicated to TRT in a way and is a good resource you can use to educate yourself on the topic.
Anabolic steroids can be quite helpful when the person has suffered severe weight loss a.k.a body wasting due to all kinds of diseases. Back in the day it was not uncommon for doctors to prescribe Dbol (Arnold’s favorite steroids) to teenagers after severe pneumonia. To be quite frank at that time it was also not uncommon to prescribe Dbol to teenagers who just wanted to get bigger for football.
In general, when taken as prescription from a doctor steroids can really better your life and are not as harmful as we make them appear. However, even at low doses you will still experience some side effects and your natural testosterone production will be shut down, although that should not be a problem because your levels are supposed to be pretty low in the first place.
Please, don’t be delusional…
There is a misconception that if you are on TRT doses, you are natural. Well, we have news for you – you ain’t natural. You are still an enhanced lifter. Even if your TRT program is just meant to take your levels to what’s considered optimum, you are still way above the norm. Sorry, but we are not sorry and you have to know that virtually nobody has optimal natural testosterone levels. There are people in their 20s or less who will never ever reach the levels ‘old guys’ get to thanks to TRT.
In addition, many people and professional athletes use TRT as a free ticket to massive ‘juicing’. It’s a well known fact that once you allow an athlete to take drugs under the form of TRT, you are basically allowing them to use as much steroids as they want. Remember: most drug tests can only detect that your testosterone levels are elevated and it’s hard to tell what doses you are actually using.
That’s why we recommend to people to get out of their heads the idea that TRT makes you natural. It doesn’t – it just means you have (sometimes you don’t) a good reason to take anabolic steroids, but you are still heavily enhanced and despite the fact that the doses are small, they are still much higher than what a natural person has to work with.
In the video below you can see people in the fighting industry complain about the same problem and the advantage you get from TRT.
Note: We don’t support the UFC or other forms of mindless fighting. We consider those sports too violent and for individuals with low level of consciousness. However, the people in the videos raise some good points regarding TRT.
TRT is definitely one of the main benefits steroids have to offer and if you need to boost your testosterone levels for the better, that’s the way to do it. However, you must rely on medical advice instead of mindlessly pinning yourself. Also, no matter how you look at it, TRT is still juicing and you are not natural in the true sense of the word.
