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 split 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!
