1.Steroid users are cheaters.
You can talk about nutrition and proper exercise form all day. Yet the biggest difference in terms of body composition in bodybuilding comes from the muscle elixirs because they alter the regular synthesis of protein within the body – neither training nor nutrition can do that. This is why roids users surpass the natural potential so effectively.
A quick look at a female bodybuilder reveals that anabolic steroids can turn just about anyone into a walking muscle tank. Female bodybuilders are bigger than the majority of the natural males in almost any gym. That’s how effective steroids are. Even if you train for 200 years as a natural without getting old, you will not acquire the same results. I am dead serious.
Most of the big guys in the muscle magazines and on YouTube are on steroids. Surprisingly or not, you don’t have to be 250lbs to be a heavy steroid user. There are 150lbs weightlifters competing in the Olympics who are on a lot of drugs too.
Regardless of that, most steroid users will tell you that their success is largely due to ”proper” nutrition and training in order to sell you supplements and programs
In brief, steroids work. They build mass and strength that cannot be acquired through other methods yet. Ironically, bodybuilders and fitness models always downsize the effect of drugs and put an emphasis on supplements, training, and nutrition.
2.Steroid users are NOT cheaters.
A steroid user may grow while training less intensely, but there are many problems outside of the gym that you don’t see.
”Druggies” often experience side effects such as testicular atrophy, baldness, fertility problems…etc. They also have to spend a lot of time educating themselves on the subject of steroids in order to avoid mistakes that could lead to poor gains, injuries or death. Believe it or not – that’s hard work.
Many people believe that steroids are a magic wonder drug that doesn’t require sacrifices and everything’s handed to you. This is not true. To be a successful drug user, you actually have to work very hard to extract the most out of the drugs while preserving your health in the process.
As a steroid addict, you may be able to cheat the public and even your family, but you still can’t cheat nature. You are paying the price no matter what. The good things that you are going to get from the needle won’t be presents. Nature always finds a way to balance things out, and sometimes this requires a blood bath. In this life, you can only cheat yourself and other people – nature law doesn’t care. It’s omnipresent and unbreakable by man. Many steroid users experience organ failure, bankruptcy, and other unpleasant issues.
In addition, steroid users often develop an alter ego for the public and transform into pathological liars. Depending on your character that can be particularly hard to recover from.
Should you hate on steroid users?
In general, we don’t recommend that you hate on steroid users because they are human beings like you. There are no perfect people. We are all here trying to learn something. You have to understand that even steroid users have hard lives and many problems to deal with too even though they look like Greek Gods.
Good to see a positive message delivered on this site. The sooner people realize that steroids/drugs are a major part of bodybuilding the better. Then everyone can get on juice without making too much of a hoopla over it. Honestly I don’t really understand the logic of NOT using moderate doses of drugs. Every medical study has shown great results even with moderate doses of legitimate exogenous hormones. Side effects are pretty easy to control at moderate doses (completely different story at the astronomical doses of pros, but anyway very few people have the money or inclination for that).
Unless you have arbitrary moral line given to you by some people in the government/authorities I don’t see what reason you have to NOT use basic doses of gear.
