If anabolic steroids are good to give you the aesthetic physique simultaneously they are responsible for extreme side-effects or interfere with your health status.
Despite medical field, my blog is only focused the negativity of anabolic steroids in the sports and fitness.
The bodybuilding started to gain popularity in the late 1950’s an 1960’s as the title of Mr. Universe.
As the bodybuilding field arises in the popularity, individuals or competitors are starting to struggle or hard working a lot.
They spent hours on the training, tearing their muscle through heavy lifting of weight. Because the training in a gym requires a lot of time as well as dedication so, they are going to adopt a short way to accomplish the goals.
Due to the best results, they are trying to take heavy doses for an effective result within a short period of time.
Steroids and the combination of the HGH, insulin, and extreme diets for a long period of time result in the damaged of livers, kidneys, and also affect the cardiovascular health.
Some of the bodybuilders remain normal because they are using the anabolic steroids within a normal range while the majority of bodybuilders feel sick and developed disease whereas, the severe cases result in the early death.
IFBB, Pro’s and even, professional bodybuilders are gearing.
As they are well known due to their aesthetic and becomes famous so, they are starting to take the heavy amount of anabolic steroids and Human Growth Hormones as well.
It is most common that the competitors have already taken testosterone and some other compounds for the bodybuilding.
I’m not criticizing anyone for using anabolic steroids definitely, everyone is using drugs for boosting performance and to define their physiques.
Some of the crazy bodybuilders run steroid cycle that has overdosed on drugs.
All of this strongest passion and stupidity cause the loss of their precious life or death.
