What Happens if You Use Steroids and Wait

For anyone who could be wondering if you get anything out of taking steroids without any physical activity, I wanted to go into detail about what will happen if you follow this horrible plan. I don’t recommend that anyone use the real deal steroids but, metaphorically, here is what you would most likely have happen to you. For the few of you that think you can just decide to start taking a steroid, without doing anything else, let me dash those hopes that doing this will give you any kind of positive results. First, most steroids are going to tell all of the amazing components that make up our internal systems to do different things. For the general sake of this discussion, I’m going to lead with the most common benefits that most steroids will offer you.

Usually, your body is being told to produce muscle rapidly, when you go and lift weights, you get more of the reward. However, if you use a steroid and don’t exert yourself, the body will still get told the same thing, it just won’t have a response to that original message. I would compare it to someone being told to go and push down the gas pedal on the car when they don’t have any keys to start the engine, it wouldn’t do much to get the actual car moving. On the flipside, there are steroid that are made to increase the rate at which you lose weight.

Let’s tackle that other category of steroid supplements and figure out what would happen if you used these weight loss steroids, without stepping foot out of your front door. If you are wanting to lose a good amount of weight and aren’t getting yourself up and moving, you will only end up gaining additional weight. If you were to do nothing and use, what is known as, a cutting steroid, you will notice minimal fat loss. I suppose that it would be easier to cut weight than to build muscle, if you don’t get up very often. Don’t be so sure you are setting yourself for such an easy path, the loss will be lazybones personsplit among your muscle and fat. Being less flabby is never a bad idea but if it comes at the expense of the muscle that you have worked so hard to achieve, you are taking six steps back, just to take one forward. The only body type that you will end up having will be case of skinny fatness, where you looked out of proportion and like the average person. If you have been spending months in and out of a weight room, the last thing that you want to hear that you look like is average, how crushing that would be. The argument among those who use steroids, or have in the past, was that the good outweighed the bad.

How true the previous claim really is, has been the main subject of the massive steroid debate for ages. What I can say is this, at least those people put in the work to get the good, coupled with the bad. As you see, the side effects of steroid use will attack a non-active lifter just the same as it would do to someone who was regularly working out three to five times a week, that is a scary thought to think about. I don’t mind telling people how dangerous steroid use can be, if you are uninformed or otherwise. If you believe that you can use steroids and get fit from the comfort of your living room, you will be doing yourself nothing but harm, so don’t do it!

Lenny Dykstra’s Memoir Covers His Roid History

Known as one of the most popular baseball players of his time, Lenny Dykstra is releasing a new book. A long line of former baseball stars have released books, this is nothing new. What does make his story stand out from his peers all has to do with the subject of steroids. Lenny is actually making some headlines again, as he has been talking about his steroid usage and how it compares to what is going on right now. You have heard about the younger generation of players getting sidelinded for failing their standard steroid tests. Nowadays, everything is much controlled and it is easier to get busted for using the wrong things to help keep you ahead of all of the competing teams. However, the strict guidelines weren’t always there and Dykstra would be more than happy to tell you all about it.

Lenny played for two major baseball teams in his career, the New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies. With about ten years of total time playing for big-name teams, this guy was always around the temptation to take something to bring your game to all-new heights. Lenny had a great baseball career but it wasn’t without its dark times. Dykstra had some issues with the law that plagued him after his time playing professionally on the diamond was over. No stranger to the issues of steroids, Lenny even mentions that he would be accustomed to having his steroids for breakfast. How crazy must it have been to be in a world where substances so dangerous would just become a regular part of your life, like having a meal when you wake up?

steroids in past

Hearing some of Lenny’s amazing interviews, he brings an important matter in the debate on sports players using steroids. His point is that, in his mind, taking steroids daily meant the difference between millions, or a normal job, like everyone else. If you were tempted to use steroids, in order to bring your salary up to the millions, would you? It is a tough question to answer, someone like me could sit behind a keyboard and say that I wouldn’t hurt my body to make more money but if you were actually seeing the million-dollar contract in front of you, it would sure be tough to walk away from that. Lenny Dykstra wasn’t the first athlete that ever had to make this decision but he has one of the best viewpoints on the matter that I have read about. It becomes much tougher to not be involved in steroids, unless you picture yourself in the position of the athletes.

When most of us hear about another athlete getting busted, we turn our noses up at that person. However, if you were the athlete just trying to make some more money, would you want everyone judging you for your decisions? I think that everyone should go and grab a copy of Lenny’s new memoir, I know that I will be buying it. I love it when athletes can set aside the smoke and mirrors and tell you how it really was to be them. This man makes no excuses, takes no prisoners, and has no problem telling it like it is. I would have to guess that Lenny Dykstra’s new book is going to be a wild ride that has all of the details that we all want to know about the path to the big time for an all-star baseball player.

Football Players Warned of Steroids in Foreign Meat

Throughout the past years, we have read some amazing excuses for steroids coming up in tests. The one that I’m about to tell you about truly takes the cake as one of the weirdest ways to accidentally use steroids that I’ve ever heard of. If you are traveling out of the country and play sports, there is a warning going around about certain meat products from other countries. It is being said that the ingredient in some meats are actually an anabolic. Don’t think that eating meat from other countries is going to turn you into a muscle monster, it could actually affect your sports career.

These findings aren’t just speculation either, there has already been a player that has gotten a violation when he consumed meat in Mexico. I don’t know how the tests are done but hopefully he got a pass, if the steroids that he ingested were purely from meat. You could be asking, wouldn’t having steroids in meat be against the law? You’re right, having meat containing anything resembling an anabolic would be removed promptly, in the United States. However, different countries have different laws, this being why eating meat from another country could end up giving you extra ingredients that you didn’t ask for or want.

Even though I had thought that this was some sort of late April Fool’s joke, the science behind what is in certain meats and other locations is completely true. So true, that a sports organization even waved a positive test result for anabolics when a player had documentation that said he ate meat in Mexico. I hope that readers of the story doesn’t lead to people trying to get meat exclusively from other countries, in order to think of it as some sort of workout revolution. The amounts of anabolics in the meat are probably so low that they wouldn’t have much of an effect, so don’t try it. Furthermore, even though the steroid content is enough to cause failed tests, I highly doubt that it would be enough to provide any sort of muscle improvement, at least nothing major.

Another MLB Player Gets Busted

another baseball steroid bustThe Minnesota Twins professional baseball team takes another hit as an outfielder has been busted for testing positive for Stanozolol. The interesting thing with the suspension would be that Reynaldo never even got to play his first major-league game. This man was 29 years old and most of his time playing baseball was done in the minor leagues. For the world of baseball, this is seen as a huge blow, simply because this man was unproven on the major-league field. It could be said that, as time went on, he could’ve been a more valuable addition to the Minnesota team but as for now, we won’t know for 80 days.

I say 80 days because that is the length of the first time suspension for what he had popped for in his test. For the duration of his first suspension, with the time that this occurred with baseball season just starting to warm up it could be seen as a big blow for the Twins. This will make things even more uncertain as the next season approaches because many of his professional peers won’t know how he plays on a major-league field. He could’ve been seen as a good replacement or a string player to keep just in case one of the bigger stars had an unforeseen injury, now those plans seem to be up in the air. If Stanozolol sounds like something you have heard before, there could be a pretty good reason for that. This is the actual steroid that other players have been banned for using as well.

With a growing list of individuals that have been caught using this kind of steroid, don’t you think the athletes will try something else by now? I certainly do but with all of the ways that a steroid like this can get transformed and used for other purposes, it really doesn’t surprise me. For the Twins, some are probably thankful that this wasn’t one of their more well-known and popular players. Still, the fact remains that this news is bad for the organization and I can’t help but feel for the player in question, who’s future will now take a much different turn. For someone who is getting ready to play a full season of games, having to be sidelined for most of the season has to be a crippling below. You may have also heard of the steroid known by its other name, which is Winstrol. Used for more of a medical nature, Winstrol does have positive properties to it. Actually, this steroid can help with different kinds of medical conditions and can also be used to induce growth, when needed for health concerns.

However, as is the case with this recent baseball bust, sports players are using it for different reasons. Perhaps sports players using it too much and too many tests coming up positive could be just a few causes of what led to the world anti-doping agency putting a ban on the substance. There could be tougher regulations and testing going into place as it seems as if this recent year has been a hotbed for baseball players getting busted. Hopefully, Minnesota will remain quiet for the rest of the season and there won’t be any other bans coming out of their camp. This has been a crazy seaoson for baseball fans, with all of the action not just being on the field!

Update: Pakistan Has Banned Bodybuilding Shows

In what has to be one of the more stunning developments in something that we have covered previously, the country of Pakistan has actually banned bodybuilding competitions. This is not a decision that was made all of the sudden or had no real basis for why the decision was made. Tragically, four bodybuilders, all in separate incidents, have passed away within about a two week period. Recently, I told you all about the two big deaths in the Pakistani bodybuilding world.

The two men that died, from my earlier post, were not your run-of-the-mill amateur weightlifters either. No, these men were bodybuilding greats who were way ahead of the competition and both men had won medals for professional bodybuilding in their lifetimes. I had hoped, with every bone in my body, that there were not be any additional deaths and that this tragedy would be over.

However, this was not the case, as fate had other plans in store with these two other deaths involving bodybuilders. Initially, I really wasn’t sure if steroids had played a part in these serious events but two deaths, in such a short time and in a close proximity, has me wondering what to believe. Understandably, there aren’t many details that are being reported about these four strange and seemingly tied together cases.

Whether it is for sure has to do with a batch of tainted steroids or an indicator of something more widespread, I do not know. It appears that this countries officials are not blind as to what could be behind all four of these deaths. Officials even cite excessive steroid use as the reason as to why competitions involving bodybuilding have been banished. The length of the ban on bodybuilding shows is yet to be determined, judging from the statement that was made by the Pakistan officials, it looks like it could last for a while. bodybuilder

What Pakistan Plans to Do to Stop This

I appreciate what this country is doing to fight back, concerning the recent wave of steroids that has left a bad mark on the country. Some are even calling into question the local gyms in the area that were affected by the recent deaths, wondering what really went on behind closed doors. We have a lot of fingers to point for blame but it seems like there is no single scapegoat, at the moment. Looking closer into the theory of the fitness centers being to blame, if we look at steroid run ins with the law in America, I could definitely see the point that Pakistan officials are making.

If you visit a big name gym that is backed by a corporation, you can rest assured that things will most likely be on the up and up. However, venturing into the smaller health centers where the rules have a greater tendency to bend or break, one could obtain steroids. I don’t want to throw every mom and pop health club under the bus here, I think the places where these kinds of supplements would be available are few and far between, for good reason. I sincerely hope that with the ban put in place by Pakistan, I will not have to say anything else about the tragedies that have taken place within this country in a matter of weeks. I was going to make it sure that I updated all of you on these four horrible incidents, I wished that the news would have been better.

Alarming Recent Wave of Death Among Bodybuilders

It appears as if there are some odd things happening in for bodybuilders in Pakistan. Ok, not every single bodybuilder in that country but two big names in this field have died recently. I don’t mean like recently, as in the past year, we’re talking about within the span of a little over two weeks. One man, named Humayun was a very popular weightlifter, who had even been awarded medals in professional competitions. Sadly, he had injured his trachea while he was having a meal. I am doubtful that this first one was directly related to steroids. For me, this appears as a freak accident that tragically was a fatal one. Of course, there will always be those who will wonder if the stress placed on his body, first happened because of steroids.

Looking at the second case, things get a little weirder when looking at the details. The next bodybuilder of such prominence to pass away had suffered from cardiac problems, leading to his death. Both of these events happening in two weeks is strange enough, add to the mix that they were both bodybuilders of a professional level and it really is eerie. I am really hoping that there are no more incidents ever, especially anything that adds to the number of recent deaths. There could be a large number of reasons that these events could be related, it could also be an odd and unfortunate coincidence. If we look into what could have caused these two cardiac incidents, we have to mention steroids.

I am not accusing any of these men of taking them, but it does draw some questions where some could draw their own connections. A case of bad steroids hitting the market that are tainted with who knows what would not be a new event. One of the biggest risks one undertakes when using a substance that is not meant to be widely used, meaning that it faces to regulatory measures, stories like these are common.

As plans are being made to phase out shipments that contain any kind of substance like these, I have faith that bad and fake steroids are taken out of the hands of innocent consumers. What can be done from here is two celebrate the two men, they lived their lives with a sense of determination that I can’t even fathom having. Truly, these two guys made legends of themselves by taking their bodies to their limit. Pursuing a dream in the professional bodybuilding realm is quite a task to complete.

I love working out and am in relatively good shape but I know that I would have near enough grit to tackle competing, let alone winning a single championship. As people continue to push themselves beyond their old limits, some can take it a bit too far. Please keep in mind to not risk damaging yourself in the pursuit of being stronger. There are always safer ways to accomplish your goals, do not be careless with your health, it is the most important aspect of your life. One minute these two men were taking over in their profession and then two tragedies happen so close together. I will continue to check up on the latest breaks in this big story and will be updating further on this issue once I know more details.

The Tale of Kieran Kidder’s Rise to Powerlifting Greatness

Founder of the World Powerlifting Organzation, here is a guy who knows his way around a gym. Not only founding such a great group, he didn’t get to this position of leadership from sitting on the sidelines. Kidder is an accomplished powerlifter himself. A lifter that focuses on power will normally have a different build than would, a bodybuilder. A barrel-chested and bigger physique (that some would in correctly see as fat), powerlifters are most often much stronger than bodybuilders. Kieran has been trying different supplements to help him attain further greatness for decades. Kidder did not shy away from using steroids, to this day he will defend what he does. He believes that most of the public does not know enough about these compounds. To him, his daily routine has become like a way of life and as simple as it would be for another person to take their daily Aleve!

kierian lifting

His schedule is one that could make even the most hardened steroid users wince. He combines injectables, along with capsules to run his complete cycle. I never condone any usage of these compounds but his routine is really powerful. I can’t imagine trying to run that much at once, but to each his own. In his way of thinking, the more receptors that you can trigger and get fired up, the better for your training this will be. Here is what is happening, as Kidder uses these various compounds. The muscle is made up of many different tissues, made up in a chain-like form. When you do anything to strengthen your muscles, these tissues tear and rip. Literally, thousands of small fibers are what makes up an entire muscle. The difference of taking a steroid is these repairs happen at a rapid rate, building the actual muscle up at a faster speed. One misconception is that someone can just start a steroid and look ripped in days, it doesn’t work that way. When repairs mend the series of small tears in a muscle, it removes aches and can get you back to lifting much sooner, which many do not know is why such rapid growing occurs among those like Kidder. Perhaps relying on these compounds too much, he was arrested in 1996 and had to even serve time. Learning an important lesson, he now knew his life could be affected by what was helping him repair his fibers faster. Regardless of how you view this man’s choices, a steroid spreads throughout your whole body, think of how it enters it. Experts still maintain their thoughts that a steroid can, in fact, change how someone behaves.

You won’t find that to be a point that Kidder would agree with. He claims that it all comes down to how you use these compounds that leads to your results. I can’t say, with one hundred percent clarity, who is right and wrong in this debate. I think that both sides have points that I agree with. It is important to note that, while Kidder has built his body with these compounds, other have ruined their lives entirely with them. As more continue to bash these compounds and anyone who uses them, there will always be a figure like Kieran Kidder to prove them all wrong. Who you choose to follow in this debate, is your own decision.

Tasmania Struggles to Fight Steroid Flood Through Mail

It was stated that these steroids were actually seized through the mail system, as this is a big way people are trying to get this stuff into another country. This is why I tell people to advise against taking the risks when trying to get any kind of steroidal. Websites that are actually selling the real deal face increased scrutiny. The problem is that these websites operate in places where these kind of steroids are allowed to be obtained. Someone can go onto this website and have an order sent to them, even though their country might not allow anyone to obtain gear.

Anything that is being done to stop these websites is a step in the right direction. Not only is no one really sure what is being sold to them, it also raises another important concern. This concern is that uneducated (therefore dangerous) minds are having these dangerous substances so readily available to them. Someone new to using such a dangerous item could very likely not know all that they need to be safe. If these people are not keeping safety as the most important decision maker, they could do some real harm to themselves. It really makes me nervous to know that someone who knows nothing about what they could be using to have an outlet made for them to try whatever they wanted. There are some things in life where you can’t just learn by doing and using steroids sits pretty high on that list, in my opinion.

I have to commend the police for how well they are doing to stop this growing problem. I don’t know the details, as to what all has been seized but the fact that the streets are cleaner is good enough for me. There is no need for something so dangerous to be so readily available, maybe this will teach those a lesson to not try and cheat the system. Hopefully, this will send a clear message to all residents of Tasmania that steroid use will not be tolerated. Congratulations to everyone who was a part of making this bust such a successful one!

Sprint Like the Wind: Which Steroids Make You Faster?

Let’s take a moment and get away from the muscled and oiled up Hercules look and get to running. Known widely as one of the best things that you can do to manage weight, going for a run is a hobby that most people enjoy. Not everyone is the kind of runner that you will see in a track event, instead, the run is usually a non-competitive way to take some time out of the day for you and you alone. Here, you walk a fine line with your body composition. If you become to loaded down with mass, you will have to carry more weight with each step you take. This is why most races that you will watch do not have anyone that matches the description of a defensive lineman. Most runners have to keep their frame nice and slender because of how faster it lets them be. To further complicate matters, you can’t just go reaching for the first steroid that you hear about. Not only are they mega illegal, many tests needed to take as a runner will weed out those shenanigans quicker than you can say Armstrong.

If you just like the feeling of flying down a track, stick with something that isn’t too harsh and won’t add extra weight. You will need a steroid that has the ability to give you more oxygen. As you are able to breathe deeper, this will help to keep you running at top speed without leaving you panting as the yards go by. Blood cells also control so many of the functions that anyone with a pair of running shoes on will need to beat their record sprinting time. The good news is that most products made to help with getting you more oxygen, will often go hand in hand with being able to raise your blood cell count as well.

At first glance, it doesn’t appear as such, but repeated amounts of running can be tough on your joints. The constant motion of feet hitting running in placea surface in a fast motion, gradually wears down joints in your legs. Before you reach out for the supplement you see, find out if it causes any joint pain. You do not want to be mid-run when, all of a sudden, your own legs turn against you. I know some of you have watched segments of races in which the athletes body simply can not take another step. From the stiffness in their sure-to-be cramped body, a runner will usually lock up and be forced to take a seating or lying position. Having its roots in joints simply giving out on the person, when running don’t take anything that will hinder how well your joints carry you across the racing track.

Nothing, and I mean nothing, can ever take the place of a consistent drive to achieve victory through hard work and persistence. Not everyone moves to the same beat, meaning that this option could not be the most viable one for you. If you are interested in taking something to fill that need for speed of which you have, there is always something available. Without trying to sound like a goody two shoes, do everything that you can, utilizing all-natural methods before you go reaching for anything stronger. Most of the times, just some good old-fashioned boots to the ground will cure everything. Avoid making any irrational decisions when you could just be having an off day that took your run right along with it.

Reader Question: What Would Be Like Turinabol?

I wanted to cover something that I had been wanting to talk about, the subject of Turinabol. You really don’t hear this steroid mentioned anymore, due to how good it was, I was surprised by that. I thought more people would be looking to find something like that, for a while. Alas, not hearing enough about it got me thinking that I would have to delve into this issue myself. The more I tried to find something close to Turinabol, the tougher it came to be. All hope was not lost, as I did come upon a couple of things that are said to be able to replicate the effects that Turinabol had, on some.

thisisturinabol

Before I get into that, I wanted to tell those of you who don’t know what this steroid is, a little bit of background. Turinabol was something that has been around for a long time, since the 60s! This one was first made in Germany, some even claim that it could have been a cause for concern when the Germans team swept the Olympics! There was nothing that was actually found out during that time, but it still did raise some suspicions, at the time. Beyond that, the increased demand for Turinabol would cause some to do anything that they could to get it. One thing that made Turinabol so different from any other steroid out there, was that it was created just to be used for competitiveness in sports, not for any type of serious ailment. It really took a big leap ahead into how we saw steroids at that time in history. Steroids were now really started to be seen as something that could increase muscle size, differing from the medical purposes that they had been used for in the past. Once news began to break about how well the German team fared, there was definitely more demand for that very steroid in the United States. Naturally, this would lead to wider spread use of the steroid, to such an extent, it had to be listed as something not allowed here anymore.

Even though I previously mentioned the Olympics, don’t think that using any of this will make you turn into a wall of muscle. If you were to even use something close to it, at best, you would notice small gains with no extra fat. So, just wanted to mention that for those of you who thought that was good for strictly gains in mass, it isn’t. I don’t want to paint too bad of a picture for this one, but I have to let you know something else about Tbol, it is kind of tough on your organs. You will need to remind yourself to really watch how you feel over time. You will also stand a risk of side effects, there really are better choices to make than this steroid, it’s not wise to use. Instead of that, you are in luck, there are a few different things that can offer you much more than small increases in strength. Stick with anything that says it is an alternative to Tbol, Trenbolone, or Turinabol, however, use those at your own risk and watch out for side effects to start popping up. It is best to leave that one to people who know the risks of what they are using and you might stick with something that is a little less harsh on you.
