Steroid Use

I have gotten a few questions about steroid use on comments section and thought I would address the issue.

First of all, the use of steroids in the US is illegal.  Now whether that is right or wrong is a matter of opinion and there are valid points on both sides.

But, bottom line they are illegal. 

Do they work?  Yes, they work. 

Most people will never get to the size of professional bodybuilders without some kind of extra help. 

And many bodybuilders (and other athletes) still use them.  That is why many bodybuilding events have drug testing. 

Before, there were bodybuilding events.  Now there are natural or drug free bodybuilding events and other non tested bodybuilding events. 

Steroid use will help you get bigger and sometimes stronger.  But, for the average person trying to become a bodybuilder they will never reach the size of some of these men and women champions.

You need the genetics before anything else.  Then you need a diet specific for gaining weight.  Then you need a great training program based on building muscle.

Then you need to use supplements to build muscle and to burn body fat.  Then you need the steroids.

All of that to reach the pinnacle of success in the bodybuilding world.

Most people won’t do what it takes to reach that level.  That is why there are only a few champions.  It takes a lot of hard work – with or without the steroids.

But, there is another reason that we need to talk about steroid use and training.

To become as fit as you can be involves dedication and your involvment.  Your involvement in your training.  Your involvement in your nutriton.  Your involvement in your health.

In other words, just having bigger muscles just means you have big muscles.  It does not mean you are extra strong, that you are fit, that your are healthy or that you even live a healthy lifestyle.

All of that is necessary to get the benefits of fitness and health. 

Steroids will not help you get healthier or fitter. 

They will help you get bigger.  But, there is a problem here also. 

You can use weight training to get bigger.  There are many people with big muscles in the gym and most do not use steroids. 

There are many professional bodybuilders who do not use steroids.  And they have huge muscles and very little body fat. 

Even they admit that steroid use is tempting.  Because it is a shortcut to getting bigger. 

But, is it as satisfying?   I don’t think so. 

To me, working and accomplishing something worthwhile is what life is all about. 

To be healthy and fit is a worthwhile goal for me.  That means I have to exercise.  That means I have to eat right.  That means I have to do a lot of things to make sure I stay on the path.

And occasionally I will have a cheat meal.  That is okay.  But, occasionally is not 2-3 times a week. 

I do this to make sure I stay healthy and fit my whole life. 

Do I have big muscles?   No.  As some of you have commented I am a “skinny noob”. 

You should have seen me when I was much younger.  I look like Arnold now, compared to then. 

But, I am very fit and in better shape than most people that go to the gyms. 

Bottom line, if your goal is to become a professional bodybuilder, then steroid use is something that you will have to deal with.

For everyone else, stay on the healthy and fit path and forget about them.  And don’t worry, you can build bigger muscles if you use the right training programs and eat correctly. 

Keep tuned for more on this.
