Present scenario of steroids

Many see steroids as a tool to speed up the process of achieving their ideal body type. And of course, nowadays its a trend of having bulky body for which they presume steroids as an ultimate way to enhance their build. Some of them are influenced from their friends, some are suggested by their trainers and some needs it to impress the opposite gender etc. Reasons can be many. But such consumption does not always gives you the good result. There are ample number of cases from round the world where bodybuilder consuming steroids attains death at an early age. I have my clients discussing their stories some such cases are shared here (names are not disclosed from privacy point of view)

CASE 1: One of my client admits he used steroids. He says the lows, including low sex drive and depression which come with taking testosterone. He told us that how damaging the experience actually was.

CASE 2: Though the case was not reported. Recently, in bhilwara, a young boy died, during its training session, because of sudden cardiac arrest (reason being steroids intake). The fact that anabolic steroids are finding their way into gyms, building muscles gradually became a greater goal than strength and power.

CASE 3: One of the Akhada wrestler, who came up to me when he was under recovery from a tumor over his butt (result of steroid injection). He was suggested to take steroids for better orientation. He used to inject steroids through injection over his butt, where he had developed a tumor after sometime. He has undergone the surgery, 2 months back, for its treatment and is still under recovery.

Dear readers, Remember ‘to get on gear’ is to forget it, there is no quick fix and its not worth it. Keep in mind that steroids ain’t for everyone, just work on basics, hard work and nutrition is the key.

Anabolic steroid use is illegal and banned by professional sports organizations and medical associations. So in my opinion, until and unless you are not a professional bodybuilder avoid the use of steroids. To know how you can have massive buildup without steroids stay connected with us.
