If you’ve been going to the gym for a few years, training seriously and have a well structured diet and looking to take your training to the next level, what’s the obvious answer? By supplementing with errogenous hormones such as steroids. But what do you really know about them other than they made one of the guys at the same gym you go to ridiculously big?
Steroids are a class III scheduled drug. Meaning they’re just as illegal as carrying around narcotic pain medications that don’t belong to you. If you’re found with steroids for the first offense you’ll likely have to do A LOT of community service hours, unless you happen to have a judge that throws the book at you. Then you’re doing hard time in a jail or penitentiary with a felony monkey hanging on your back for the rest of your life.
Without a question, steroids will most undoubtedly be considered illegal and you could put your career in jeopardy. Even in powerlifting you run the risk of being kicked out of your federation if testing positive for steroids.
While you know they can get you huge, it’s a double edge sword. It relates directly to a risk vs reward ratio. The more you use, the higher the reward, but also higher the risk. And vice versa. And the risk that we’re talking about here are the side effects of steroids.
- Severe acne, oily skin and hair
- Hair loss
- Liver disease, such as liver tumors and cysts
- Kidney disease
- Heart disease, such as heart attack and stroke
- Altered mood, irritability, increased aggression, depression or suicidal tendencies
- Alterations in cholesterol and other blood lipids
- High blood pressure
- Gynecomastia (abnormal development of mammary glands in men causing breast enlargement)
- Shrinking of testicles
- Excess facial or body hair
- Stunted growth and height in teens
- Risk of viral or bacterial infections due to unsterile injections
- Menstrual irregularities in women
- Excess facial or body hair, deeper voice in women
- Clitoral hypertrophy (growth)
- Masculine facial traits
- As well as many of the stated above…
So guys, there are a long list of adverse side effects that could potentially happen when running a steroids cycle. One side effect that I didn’t mean comes from the steroid compound called Deca, or Deca Durabolin. The possible side effect coming from this steroids is known to as Deca Dick. Simply because it shuts down your junk and you can’t even get a half chubb.
Guys have reported this to go on for as long as ONE TO TWO YEARS while getting no help from the use of erectile dysfunction medication. Could you imagine being trapped in a body that wanted to bone your hottie of a wife at all hours of the day but couldn’t even get LT. Johnson to stand at attention for more than a minute? Or Ms. Naughty is sending you dirty pics while your away on a business trip and all you have to work with is a wet noodle. Personally, that’s a world I don’t want to live in.
Running a cycle isn’t cheap and the cost of the steroids increase with every middle man between you and the “chemist” who made it. So by the time your illicit steroids reach your hand the vial that cost the chemist 20-30$ to make now costs you anywhere from 60-100$ and possibly even more than that depending on the scarcity of the product in the region. You’re looking at laying down anywhere from 250-300$ on a single cycle. That’s a lot of dough for steroids.
Another problem with steroids is that the purchaser is severely limited by what his dealer has in stock. Planning on running a Test Ethanate and Tren cycle? Bummer dude. You’re guy is all out of both and doesn’t plan on having any in the foreseeable future. Guess you’ll just have figure something else out. Or if you start developing sensitive nipples (pre condition for gyno) and your guy is all out of an AI that leaves you very susceptible to developing gyno. Stop being at other people’s mercy!
The biggest and most common problem that people have with buying steroids is buying fake stuff. What happens if you buy fake steroids? Absolutely nothing. You have zero recourse. You can’t go to the Better Business Bureau and file a complaint that the product you received was either completely fake or very underdosed. You’re complaining about an illegal product! Nobody is going to give you your money back after buying the steroids if you find them not up to the standard you were expecting. Again. You’re at someone else’s mercy!
As I stated above, there is a “chemist” that is involved. Essentially he’s the one that gets the powders (usually from china because they’re the cheapest) and cooks them down, adds oil and alcohol to the combination to make it readily injectable steroids. The problem is that since the powders from China are really cheap, they contain a high amount of microscopic heavy metals. Over time these heavy metals will build up in your organs and you will not be able to get rid of them. Heavy metals in large amounts act as toxins to the organs. They’re with you for life. You’re borked.
New Prohormones and Sarms: The Legal Alternatives
New prohormones and Sarms are the legal alternative to everything I stated above. They’re legal to possess and consume, and legal depending on which powerlifting federation you’re involved in. A prohormone or sarm cycle is much cheaper than a normal steroid cycle and our inventory is always in stock. Whereas there is no recourse with buying fake or underdosed steroids, when buying new prohormones and sarms -for example 17 Pro Andro or Ostarine Max– you always have the option of contacting customer support.
