Let’s see what can expect athlete-lover, wave sense all the “pros” and “cons” and decided to start taking androgene anabolic steroids. Such a person must be clear that, if he wants enough to grow steadily and to keep the achieved results, it will have to take steroids approximately 35-40 weeks per year. Believe me, the same recommended by Fred Hatfield’s two six-week cycle in the year following the year will produce almost zero results. Please understand me correctly, I’m not campaigning for a permanent taking steroids, I just inform you how things are in practice. Want to check on your experience? I wish you luck. Again, with the rather dubious common sense anabolic steroid abuse in some way may be justified by those athletes who are very close to realizing their genetic potential asteroidea. This means that the proportion of muscle tissue should be at least 50% of the body weight. That is, at least half of your body weight should be muscle. When the application of adequate dosage for the average human sensitivity to steroid therapy range from 0.5 to 1 milligrams administered per kilogram of body weight per day (smaller doses are work only for genetically gifted people, large and unreasonably toxic), you can count on the following effects:
- increase physical performance;
- the acceleration of growth of muscle mass and strength;
- improved glycogen super-compensation;
- growth strength;
- increase blood volume, improve hydration of muscle tissue;
- improvement of appetite, increase of vitality, better mood, a slight increase of aggressiveness, enabling more intensive training;
- improving the quality of training, increase of motivation for the training;
- assuming adequate nutrition, the reduction of subcutaneous fat while maintaining muscle mass or even increase it some.
IT IS HELPFUL TO OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING PRINCIPLES:
- Duration of administration of steroids should be long enough – 9 to 12 weeks
- Oral (tablets) drugs should be eliminated or at least reduced to 3-4 weeks in the beginning of the cycle, except for the practically non-toxic to the liver Primobolan, Winstrol, Oxandrolone. This is especially true of taking these steroids, such as oxymetholone, methandienone and methyltestosterone.
- Upon reaching a pronounced anabolic effect, it is advisable to reduce the dosage used twice, for example starting with a daily dose of 1 milligrams per kilogram of body weight, to reduce it to 0.5 mg per kg.
- When working to increase muscle mass protein dosage should be at least 3-3. 5 grams per kilogram of body weight per day, calorie – 40 kcal per kilogram of body weight per day.
- About four weeks before the end of the drugs exclude vysokoyarusnye esters of testosterones.
- In spite of the existing guidelines (most often, individuals never took steroids, but who consider themselves experts in this matter), do not try to save after discontinuation of steroids, and previous amount and intensity of training. In addition, it is not possible, such attempts are destructive will affect not only your muscles, but also health.
What undesirable side effects can I expect while taking steroids and after its termination?Despite the bloated ancistroides propaganda hysteria, total toxicity androgeno-anabolic steroids, even at doses of 1.5-2.5 times higher above, has not been proved. Expressed toxic effect of steroids on the body manifests itself most often with long-term use of very high doses (3-4 grams per week or more), breach of oral, alkilirovanie in 17-alpha position drugs, such as methandienone, methyltestosterone, oxymetholone, and congenital or acquired intolerance to this group of drugs. However, when taking androgene anabolic steroids may experience unwanted side effects. Side should consider all the effects that occur when taking steroids, in addition to a direct anabolic effects on skeletal muscles. The main ones:
Symptoms of virilization, such as acne (acne), which in some cases is correctable range of events, including the exclusion of simple carbohydrates from the diet, hygienic measures, prophylaxis and treatment, ingestion of drugs like Roaccutane and other retinoids, as well as antistaphylococcal immunoglobulin UV irradiation. Hirsutism is manifested as enhanced growth of hair on body and face, and both men and women. Sometimes pathological the borders reaches the gain (reversible) libido (sexual desire) in both sexes. In women may occur roughness of the voice and irreversible hypertrophy of the clitoris. The use of anabolic steroids by young people who have not reached full biological maturity, leads to accelerated puberty and early closure of the growth zones of tubular bones.
Feminization in the form of strengthening of adiposis has and the development of gynecomastia in men develops in the presence of functional insufficiency of the liver and prolonged use of high dosages of various esters of testosterone and other drugs easily affected by the process of aromatization. Therapeutic measures to combat this side effect, especially amid the ongoing of the steroids which consists in carrying out anti-estrogen therapy or taking antiaromatase medications, sometimes with serious complications.
If you are using high or even medium dose anabolic steroids in predisposed persons, as well as with increased consumption of sodium may cause edema and hypertension. If these effects not corrected by reducing sodium intake and taking diuretics herbal, the dosage of the steroids should be reduced or stop taking the drugs.
All 17-alpha-alkylated steroids, which have already been mentioned above, is potentially hepatotoxic, it is only borne by each individual person dosages. All other steroids, though not have in reasonable dosages toxic for the liver, but their anabolic effect on the liver leads to thickening of the walls of liver cells. Backed up by the Council is not very qualified “experts”, taking membraneprotective drugs like Essentiale, Kars and legalone, this effect leads to a significant thickening of the membranes of liver cells, which hinders the secretion of bile in the bile capillaries, disrupted her normal texture, resulting in the development of intrahepatic cholestasis. Clinically it is manifested by heaviness in the right hypochondrium, enlargement of the liver, while a significant expression – loss of appetite, weakness, bitter taste in the mouth, nausea and jaundice. After cessation of treatment, these phenomena often take place over two to three weeks. The only auxiliary hepatotropic therapy when taking androgeno-anabolic steroids can be the use of decoctions and infusions of rose, immortelle, corn ryltsev, in addition the use of one or two bottles degassed alkaline mineral water.
Suppression of endogenous secretion of gonadotropins and androgens, and inhibition of spermatogenesis occurs after 3-5 weeks of androgen in a dosage equivalent to 250 mg of testosterone a week. When the drugs all hormonal regulation mechanisms are restored naturally through 8-15 weeks. Popular now use horioniceski gonadotropin intervenes in the processes of hormonal regulation at a higher level and violates the natural process of restoration of normal hormonal. The use of this drug is highly undesirable, and a great deal of doubt can be justified by those athletes who want to minimize muscle loss during the short 3-5 week break between cycles prima steroids.
Despite the distributed media opinion, androgene anabolic steroids do not have carcinogenic causing cancer, effect. However, androgens stimulate the growth of existing cancer of the prostate and mammary glands.
With prolonged use of high doses of testosterone, especially in predisposed individuals may be unmotivated growth of aggressiveness and temper.
Prolonged use of high doses of steroids, especially oxymetholone, leads to a strong inhibition of immune system and weakening the strength of connective tissue structures – tendon unit and internal “skeleton” of muscle tissue. Parallel with this the increase in strength potential of the muscle unit can lead to injuries.
Long-term use of high doses of androgens leads to irreversible loss of hair on the head, especially in predisposed individuals to this, regardless of gender and age.
NON-MEDICAL USE OF STEROIDS
Steroids, usually in the form of testosterone, are partly responsible for the development of the body, especially among adolescents. They have an androgenic effect associated with changes in primary and secondary sexual characteristics, such as voice changes, body hair growth, muscle development, and bone growth. Steroids, getting into the cells, activate certain genes responsible for the creation and use of protein. As a result, the entire protein goes to the development and increase in muscle mass of a person. Since the use of steroids in athletes passes without control and in doses that are ten times higher than permissible, the risk of side effects reaches 70%. People who regularly use steroids are seven times more susceptible to liver cancer, ten times more cardiovascular diseases, five times more reproductive diseases, many times more mental illnesses and psychological disorders than people who do not use steroids.
