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.
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.
