Why newcomers and teenagers should not take anabolic steroids?

Now get anabolic quite easily. There are a lot of online stores where you choose the product you need, pay for it and in 1 – 2 weeks go to the post office to pick up the package. And it costs, as a rule, cheaper sports nutrition. For example, 100 tablets of methane will cost only 600 – 700 rubles. And you buy a lot of protein for the money? A maximum of 1 kg, which will eat in 10 days.

In addition, the ban on the storage and distribution of anabolic steroids (in Russia) gives rise to general illiteracy on this issue. What also causes unhealthy interest in the fragile minds of adolescents. So it turns out that anabolics are a mystery covered in darkness, but they are also cheap and easy to get.

Personally, I take steroids quite loyally. That is, I believe that in some cases, taking anabolic steroids is not something that is possible, but simply necessary. But these cases absolutely do not affect beginners and teenagers.
Teenagers

From 14 to 18 years of age, people experience puberty. That is, the body begins to rebuild on the “adult” rails. A hormonal system is being formed. If during this period a teenager starts taking steroids, then hormones will be ingested from the outside. This knocks down the work of its own hormonal system in both adults and adolescents.

But the big difference is that in adults the hormonal system has already been fully configured. That is, there is a so-called “point of reference”, where the body eventually returns after the end of the “course.” Moreover, this “reference point” is a fully formed hormonal system (in adults).

In adolescents, too, after the end of the “course,” the body returns to its original “reference point”. But it is not fully formed hormonal system. Since man intervened in this system at the stage of its formation.

So, such an intervention in adolescence can cause an imbalance of your hormonal system for life. These can be chronic problems with potency, libido and with everything testosterone is responsible for in our body.

For beginners

Suppose you are already 22 years old, and for the first time you decide to start swinging. It seems the hormonal system is already formed. And in this regard, there is no crime. Chemical on health. But not everything is so simple. Remember the simple truth:

The sooner you start using anabolic steroids, the less results you will achieve in the end.

I will give an example. Let’s say you have a racing car. In which there is nitrous oxide (like so called) for 20 seconds of work. The maximum speed of the car is 200 km / h. And if you turn on this nitrous oxide at a speed of 200 km / h, you can accelerate to 240 km / h. And what happens if you cut this dope right from the start? When you reach a speed of 200 km, the nitrogen is already over. And you will drive 200 km / h, although you could drive 240 km / h. But this did not happen only because you used doping too early.

I think that now everything has become clear to you

Before you start using steroids, you should get to your maximum results without them.

And this, as a rule, takes at least 3 to 4 years of constant training.

By the way, several experiments were conducted in the States. They gave anabolic steroids to two groups of people. One group is professional athletes, and the other is beginners. So, the increase in strength and mass of the professionals was very good. And newbies are several times worse. This suggests that anabolic steroids will work much worse on an untrained body.

Findings

Personally, in my room there are people who use anabolics. And I’m fine with that. But these are either professional athletes who set a goal to fulfill the standard of the master of sports. Either these are people who are over 20 years old and who have been training for 6–10 years naturally and have rested against their “ceiling”. For example, I myself. But I was trained without steroids for 14 years! And if a teenager comes up to me and asks “Where can I get anabolic steroids?”, I reply: “You need to get the brains, not anabolics.”

What to do before the first course of steroids?

This question is asked all the athletes who decide to start taking anabolic steroids. How best to conduct the first course? Unambiguous recommendations can not be given, since for each person the choice should be different.

To begin with, you should definitely make sure that the use of AAS (androgen-anabolic steroids) makes sense to you.

1. That is, your growth potential without steroids should be completely or almost completely exhausted. In this case, steroids will give much better returns. Getting closer to the genetic limit in less than three years of correct, productive training is not possible.

2. Also, do not take hormones until the moment when the hormonal profile (levels of the main hormones) becomes stable. This happens after the end of puberty, and not before 19-21 years. This is necessary in order for the endocrine (hormonal) system to quickly and confidently return to its original state after discontinuation.

Before you begin the first course of steroids, you need to carry out the preparatory work.

Testing

To do this, you must pass tests for prolactin, estrogen, dihydrotestosterone, progesterone and testosterone, luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormones.

These tests are your hormonal profile. And it is necessary that the body can come to this initial state if you decide to permanently or permanently stop taking steroids.

Also, based on these analyzes, you can predict in advance how steroids will act on you, and what side effects are more likely.

Prolactin and progesterone

The higher the prolactin and / or progesterone, the more severe the side effects associated with progestogenic activity will be. These side effects consist in a greater set of water, fat and muscles, decreased libido, increased irritability, and strong suppression of the production of endogenous (own) testosterone. Only three drugs have progestogenic activity: nandrolone, trenbolone, oxymetalone.

Estrogen

Elevated estrogen suggests a stronger aromatization. Aromatization is the process of transforming androgens into estrogens through the action of the aromatase enzyme secreted by the liver. Thus, if you have strong aromatization, the side effects of testosterone and methandienone will be stronger.

The activity of estrogen caused by such side effects as the accumulation of water and fat. With high concentration and long duration of exposure, there is a risk of breast growth of the female type (gynecomastia). However, flavoring is not always evil. Water recruitment is beneficial for joints and ligaments, small amounts of estrogen increase libido. Also, estrogen helps to build more muscles and store glycogen, increases the sensitivity of cells to androgens, is useful for the liver and skin.

Dihydrotestosterone

The higher the dihydrotestosterone, the more significant the androgen-related side effects will be. This is primarily an increase in skin greasiness and, as a result, acne.

It is also a decrease in timbre of the voice, increased growth of hair on the body, an increase in the size of the penis or clitoris, male pattern baldness (from the forehead to the back of the head). Androgenic activity of steroids helps the body to recover faster after exercise, improves the functioning of the nervous system.

All AAS, without exception, have an androgen-related side effect, since it is impossible to separate anabolic and androgenic activity.
Preparation mode

Before starting the first course, you need to choose a competent training program for yourself, organize the best diet and rest for yourself. It is also desirable to take a break from training 5-7 days. Or simply reduce the load so as to fully recover from the load that you had before the course. Since the first course, by definition, should not be strong, then you should not add much to the number of approaches and exercises in the training program.

All this is necessary to create conditions for the body when it can grow without steroids. Then even the minimum dosage of the lightest drugs will give a good return.

How often do you need to take oral and injectable steroids?

Half-life

The liver continuously destroys the steroid hormones present in the blood, down to the simplest metabolites that are excreted in the urine. Therefore, if you do not introduce new portions, then their concentration will decrease. Different drugs are metabolized (destroyed) at different rates. And for its measurement using the concept of half-life.

The structure of testosterone

The half-life (or half-life) is the time during which the concentration of the drug in the blood is reduced by 2 times. That is, with the introduction of 100mg of the drug (with a half-life of 24 hours), after 24 hours only 50 mg will be in the blood. After 48-25 mg. After 3 days – 12.5 mg.

Thus, to maintain a uniform concentration, it is necessary to administer the drug 1 time for each half-life or more often.

Pure testosterone has a half-life of only about 10 minutes. This makes pure testosterone inconvenient to use. Since it would have to prick very often. And in the first minutes after administration, the concentration would be excessively high.

To change certain properties of the hormone (for example, testosterone) in its molecule make some changes: adding and / or disconnecting from it various molecules. At the same time without changing the steroid skeleton itself. The first goal of these changes is to increase the lifetime of the drug in the body or enhance the anabolic properties.

Half-life of injectable steroids

Esterification is used to solve this problem and create longer-lasting drugs. That is, the conversion of a steroid to an ester (salt) of an organic acid. The ester is soluble in oil and injected intramuscularly. When entering the blood, the ether passes through the liver, which detaches the base of the organic acid, and the drug enters the blood.

This process is rather slow, and the dose administered is distributed over a considerable period of time.

Thus, the esterification allows you to greatly increase the half-life and makes the drug more convenient to use. However, the effect of the drug itself does not change. That is, testosterone propionate and testosterone decanoate have exactly the same properties and effect. And differ only in half-life.

All products made in this way are intended for injectable use only.

Half-life of oral steroids

To create drugs suitable for use in the form of tablets, using a different method. The difficulty is that steroids in their pure form are not able to pass through the gastrointestinal tract, the enzymes destroy them instantly. In order that they do not break down there, a CH4 molecule is attached to the steroid molecule at position 17-a. This process is called alkylation, and the steroids obtained in this way are 17-a alkylated. Alkylation at 17-a enhances the anabolic properties of drugs.

All tableted preparations, except for parabolan, are 17-alkylated. Alkylated drugs are actively destroyed by the liver, and these drugs have a short half-life. 3-4 to 11-12 hours. The half-life varies greatly depending on how active your liver is. Accordingly, oral preparations require more frequent administration. This is usually 2-4 doses per day.

Despite the suitability of all 17-a alkylated preparations for oral administration, some of them are produced both in the form of tablets and in the form of suspensions (suspended crystals in water). For example, injectable methane or injectable stanozolol. Such suspensions act, as a rule, stronger than the oral form, and have a local effect. That is, they can stimulate stronger growth of muscle tissue at the site of administration. This is due to the creation there of a higher concentration of the active substance.

Summary

  1. Anabolic steroids are sex hormones modified to enhance their anabolic properties and prolong their action.
  2. Take steroids should be no less than 1 time per half-life.
  3. To extend the life of steroids, esterification or alkylation is used. Esterification – the conversion of a steroid into a salt, an ester of an organic acid. It does not change the action of the hormone on the body, but only stretches the release of the drug into the blood for a longer time. Alkylation is the addition of a CH4 molecule to a hormone molecule. It makes the drug suitable for oral administration. Alkylation at the 17th position enhances the anabolic effect of the drug.
  4. Steroid esters are a solution in oil for injections and, as a rule, last longer than the tablet form of anabolic steroids.

Pharma support for men older than 40

This article is intended exclusively for men from 40 years old. Unfortunately, after the mark of 40 years, our body is slowly but surely beginning to move into a phase of self-destruction. This concerns nine out of ten men. Who would not say, and old age is a disease. And the disease must be fought. And win. We will talk about one of the components of this struggle today.

Of course, a competent daily routine, proper nutrition and regular exercise in the gym are strictly necessary to keep afloat. Yes, here’s the problem, men. Hormonal background in solid age cannot be supported by physiological methods alone. Somehow, of course you can, but in order to feel forever young, this is clearly not enough. Replacement therapy with hormonal drugs is strictly necessary (my personal opinion).

Here’s how to properly organize it, we now figure it out. Just warning right away. This article is to help those who just want to look good and feel at least well in sports for themselves and in everyday life. The dream of being King – Kong after 40 years is unreal (of course, if you haven’t become one before).

What we need to adjust:

  • Total Testosterone Level;
  • Globulin level;
  • Growth Hormone (growth hormone);
  • Increased resistance (muscle cell immunity) to insulin;
  • Synthetic assistants.

Before you start I will say the following. Before interfering with your body, it would be nice to be tested for the above hormonal parameters. And according to the results, correct the process. Although, in truth, everything that will be said below (with the exception of the last point) will definitely improve the quality of life of veterans of life. And VERY MUCH.

TESTOSTERONE. The best choice would be one of the long esters. According to my observations, age athletes respond best to testosterone enanthate and Omnadren mixture of esters – 250. Just remember, if you start to put dough from the outside, then this should be done to the last feature! In the second half of your life, your hormonal system can no longer cope with the restoration of natural testosterone levels almost certainly. There are exceptions, and not so, that would be very small. But sooner or later, swings with the endocrine system end very badly at a respectable age. And no PCT will help.

As for dosages, 250-500 mg per week will be sufficient. Dough is our main assistant. Without him, as without hands. As for the other anabolic steroids, in my opinion, they are not needed. But if you really want to grow a little bit, then boldenone and methenolone enanthate (Primobolan) are relatively painless.

As for any pills (with one exception, which I will say below), they should be excluded. The same applies to progestins (nandrolone, trenbolone) and stanozolol injections (Winstrol). The only steroid that can be used to get a good shape before the summer is Drostanolone Propionate (Masteron). But also undesirable due to the ability of the latter to dehydrate the body.

Mesterolon (Proviron). The fact is that it is free testosterone that is active, and not common at all. And with age, the level of globulin binding steroid hormones increases significantly. So, with all the obscenity Proviron, he has one useful quality. He is able to significantly increase the level of free testosterone, by competitive adherence to globulin and reduce the activity of the latter. It is Proviron that is the exception from oral AAS, which was mentioned above.

The scheme of application is as follows. During our perpetual course of testosterone, every two months we eat 50 mg (two tablets) of mesterolone for ten / twelve days. And problems with globulin (its excess in the body) you can not see.

SOMATROPIN (Growth Hormone). What usually gives a person in age? Right. Skin, joints and ligaments, memory. So, it is HGH that will help solve this problem at a time. Naturally, on an ongoing basis. And it must be an exceptionally high-quality product. No underground, but only a state-certified pharmaceutical product. In addition, it will additionally protect your muscle tissue and prevent fat from accumulating on the waist and hips.

Dosages 4-6 IU (and by no means more). Divide the daily dose into two injections. We put the first one and a half hours before the workout, and the second one hour and a half after it. On non-training days, the first injection is just before breakfast, and the second is an hour before dinner. The only negative is the price. Already very expensive drug. But after 40, he becomes invaluable (and for women, by the way, too).

METFORMIN (Siofor). It is this last point that I consider exceptional, but not for everyone. With age, a minority of men experience an increase in insulin resistance (immunity). The most interesting thing is that this immunity concerns precisely the muscles. Adipose tissue is not such a disease never suffers. This is manifested in the following. It seems that a person regularly trains, observes all the canons of fitness nutrition, does not abuse alcohol, does not smoke. A fat every year everything is added and added. This is where Metformin is designed to help. This drug works great with this problem by actively reducing this very resistance. Here only to find out resistance, to appoint doses and duration of reception of the given medicine, in advanced age, the QUALIFIED doctor the endocrinologist is obliged.

Optimal steroid dosage for different body types

Very often, people turn to me in the hall for the proper time on their hormonal background and ask a clear question: I (for example) are an ectomorph to the hair roots and I need a full-fledged course on volume and meat multiplication, but it is the one that will give the maximum result and will not be a waste of time and money.

Usually, this is a very virgin in terms of chemicals guys who? gathering the available info in the network – they understand that there is no point in experimenting senselessly and poking a finger at the sky. Or people who have heard a lot of advice from different forums – creeped once or twice for 4 – 6 weeks. They didn’t make any progress at best, but they also acquired acne with gyno, but there wasn’t any meat.

In general, there are three variants of the general metabolism for people in theoretical (therapeutic) medical terminology. It:

  1. Endomorph. Prone to the rapid recruitment of fat and it is difficult to lose fat and water on the dryer.
  2. Ectomorph. The representative of the hound breed, which generally gains nothing sensibly, but loses in a few days, despite the appetite of the elephant and the ability to digest nails.
  3. Mesomorph. Born an athlete with a pronounced muscle mass and the amount of fat – just right. A person able to perform well in any sport.

Naturally, to find the same endomorph or athlete in its pure form is rather difficult in real life. 90% of people on the planet are mixed types of metabolism, with a predominance of one of the three available in general. Meals, training, daily routine – all this should be taken into account primarily for progress. More tests must be taken, because fatty people often have a high level of estradiol, with a low or very modest level of testosterone. And sometimes prolactin is elevated. Or insulin resistance due to improper diet before coming to the gym.

People are dry and lean, the level of the dough is also not always decent, and sometimes quite high, but it is actively associated with globulin. It is the same with estradiol, which in the required quantity is MANDATORY for increasing meat.

Athletes (mesomorphs) are all easier, but sometimes they have problems with hormones. In short, to pass elementary tests, learn how to plow in the hall, eat the food that suits you and observe the optimal rhythm of life – this is, first of all, as I said. And according to pharma – focus on the type of metabolism that prevails in you, not forgetting that which is inferior. Not easy – yes. But probably. Here I will give three options for courses on the mass, which, by trial and error, are really the most preferable for the three types of metabolism. Something I will say on sportpitu, which is also to help, if gyrus connect. Do not blindly focus on the article – it is designed to help in the initial stage. And before the mass-packed course you have to have a press on your stomach. Or hormonal game turns into masturbation.

And further. The optimal duration for a course on weight is 12 weeks. Short courses, as in most cases, do not work as expected. Everyone, it seems, understands that it is impossible to put an uppercut in a month, learn to perform a figure jump in basketball or squeeze 150 kilograms. So the muscles for real growth need some time. 12 weeks, for starters, the most it. No nedokursik for 4-5 weeks, if you are adequate and your goal is dry meat on the bones.

We now proceed to the promised three options for the three types of the strong half of humanity.

Endomorph

1. First of all, we need some suitable testosterone ester. How not to twist, and the most convenient dough for people who are inclined to recruit fat and water is testosterone propionate. 50 to 100 mg per day.

2. If there are problems with the tolerance of injections – then testosterone enanthate 250 mg per week. These are mono ethers that are easiest to control and there are usually a minimum of surprises from them.

3. No Sustanons, Omnadrenov and Cypionates. The first acquaintance is the most important. And do not exceed the indicated dosages. They are more than enough for a simple amateur at a particular stage.

4. In addition to the dough – a purely anabolic component. There are only two options: Boldenone undecylenate / undecanoate (600 mg per week) or Methenolone enanthate, better known as Primobolan (400 – 600 mg per week). Both give an increase in dry meat, both are safe in terms of excess fluid retention under the skin and perform well against the background of minimal doses of testosterone.

5. And the dough, and injecting the AU yuzay all 12 weeks. For the first 5-6 weeks, it makes sense to add a Turinabol. It also does not aromatize a priori and does not cause water accumulation. In short, with such a course, you will not exactly look like a mutant capitta, with swollen cheeks and forever wet with sweat on your ass and back.

6. The main thing – at the initial stage, no progestins such as Trenbolone and, ESPECIALLY, Nandrolone. Methandrostenolone is probably not suitable for you either.

7. On hand, keep a MINIMUM of one plate of Anastrozole and, if necessary, only knock them down, breeding beyond measure, Estradiol. From sports nutrition I advise VSAA (to the maximum, but not more than 80 grams per day). Products containing slow carbohydrates with a minimum amount of fast (like Vitargo – improved gainers). And high quality whey protein in the morning and right after the training. II. EctomorphEctomorph1. In this case, testosterone enanthate is ideal. 500 mg per week will be just right. Naturally, Anastrozol must also be on hand. But from anabolic agents, as for me, ectomorphs are best shot by Nandrolone. Just do not take a long decanoate. Phenylpropionate is the perfect solution. At 100 mg every third day. And androgen, and the AU – for all 12 weeks of the course.5. But, Nandrolone, it is a progestin in its pure form, and therefore, you have to control prolactin and progesterone in the body. And also – to have on hand some of the inhibitors of prolactin. The same bromocriptine or Cabergolin. Unfortunately, Boldenon or Primabolan are of little help to people with accelerated metabolic processes. This is not just writing. Really noticed in practice. Although, you can still replace Nandrolone – Boldenone undecanoate. Not less than 600 and not more than 800 mg per week. Prima is definitely not your drug. Well, at the very time there will be 30 – 40 mg of Metandrostenolone for the first 4 – 5 weeks of the course. Of sports supplements – it is the classic gainers with a large number of fast-acting carbohydrates and (possibly) with the presence of fat. Immediately after the training – this is mandatory and once again a day. Choose when it is more convenient for you. But not before bedtime – this is stupid. And protein. Either whey several times a day (20 – 30 grams per serving), or, at least, casein at bedtime. Lot. 50 – 60 grams after the final meal, before going to bed.III. Mesomorph Mesomorph Unconditionally – the most clear type of general metabolism for bodybuilding. In such children, usually, the maximum increase in meat with the minimum dosages of AAS. At the first stages of chemicalization – so sure. Accordingly, I’ll actually write a course that will give the most pronounced anabolism in relation to muscle tissue.

The first course of anabolic steroids – typical mistakes

Working as an instructor in the gym, I often encounter questions from people who are not involved in any sport: “How to gain muscle mass as soon as possible, how to dry and how easy it is to be beautiful and strong?” Today, information about training, nutrition and anabolic steroids ( AC) is available to all. More and more people are ready to resort to pharmacological support. I will try to answer and express my opinion about the use of anabolic steroids by non-professional athletes.

I will not say that my experience in using the AU is valuable, but it can be useful, especially for beginner athletes and amateurs who have decided to use pharmacological support or, as already said, “cure”. Many make some mistakes when compiling the first course. Let’s try to disassemble them.

1. Use of anabolic steroids under the age of 21 years.

Application of AU to this age is not recommended, since the level of endogenous (internal) testosterone is already high without the intervention of exogenous (external). At this age, the body continues to form its endocrine system.

2. Acceptance of the AU with a small experience of training in the athletic hall.

Do not take the AU, if you have a small experience of employment. When steroids are taken, the muscles rapidly become stronger. However, the ligamentous apparatus is not progressing so quickly. There will be a chance of injury. Minimum work experience should be 2-3 years. During this time, the ligament apparatus will have time to adapt to the loads.

3. Frivolous attitude to their health.

Any pharmacological drug has contraindications and side effects. Make sure that you do not have chronic diseases of the heart, liver, kidneys, endocrine system.

4. Too long and difficult course.

When using the speakers for the first time, do not use courses longer than 6 weeks. Your goal is to conduct a short course, look at the reaction of the body and draw a conclusion. Prefer solo schemes (taking only one drug). Do not use more than 1 oral drug, such as: methandienone, oxandrolone, stanozolol, oxymetholone, turinabol. With this use, the load on the liver will increase, since they are alkylated at 17-alpha. Stop your choice on one of the above preparations. Since they are less flavored and will not harm your endogenous testosterone significantly. With the right combination of taking the drug, diet, exercise, rest, you can achieve results even when taking on a solo scheme. Remember – a lot is not always good.

5. Insufficient training intensity.

Many novice athletes remain on the same training regime while taking steroids. During the course, add at least one training day per week. The intensity of training should also change. This is due to the acceleration of the body’s recovery process.

6. Inadequate calorie and protein intake.

Eat enough, add to the diet sports nutrition. Supplementing BCAA or protein won’t hurt. And it will even be necessary because of the acceleration of protein synthesis. You should not be in a state of calorie deficiency.

7. Lack of competent PCT (post course therapy).

Although the use of non-flavoring drugs does not significantly depress your endogenous testosterone, however, insurance does not hurt anyone. It is strongly recommended to include in PCT: tamoxifen, tribulus or yohembin. Also take a hepatoprotector. I believe that Kars is the best drug. Essentiale Forte is not suitable, as a slightly different principle of action. But do not take a hepatoprotector during the course, but only after its completion.

8. High expectations from receiving speakers.

Progress when taking anabolic steroids will definitely be. Just do not wait for something supernatural. Be prepared that after the course part of the result will go. To help you come creatine, tribulus and yohembin.

Conclusion

The first course should be easy and introductory. Your primary goal is to conduct the shortest possible course and draw conclusions, evaluate the effect of the drug on your body. If a person is using anabolic steroids for the first time, then with the right application, training, nutrition, PCT, the results can be quite impressive. Remember, the most important principle is not to harm yourself. And most importantly, bodybuilding is the business of thinking people.
