Anabolic steroids, amateur sports and muscle mass
The use of anabolic steroids in amateurSport is considered unjustified. Yes, the mass of all these drugs will come, no doubt, but the effects of using steroids are systemic, not fully understood, and in the case of the female hormonal system, are generally unpredictable. Many have heard about the fact that steroid drugs increase muscle mass almost without training and begin to take them too early, before the birth of children and the onset of adulthood. Then the risk of acquiring negative consequences increases.
It should be understood that all anabolic steroids affect the hormonal background. For women, they "bring" foreign amounts of testosterone, which can lead to:
- The appearance of hair on the body by the male type and alopecia (alopecia);
- Changes in the timbre of the voice, and they are irreversible;
- The appearance of acne, rash;
- Fluid retention and significant weight gain;
- Mood swings, the appearance of seizures of uncontrolled aggression;
- Headaches, increased blood pressure.
In this post-course therapy for women, tooIs an endocrinological mystery. Many at the end of the course are not slender relief beauties, but "flooded", with acne and broken hormonal background.It is proved that the reproductive system after the use of anabolic steroids in women is restored for at least a year, and during this entire period it is better not to think about the birth of children.
Many after such a set of muscle massCollide with a "pullback", that is, the mass does not hold, the muscles decrease in volume quite quickly, and everything comes to its original state. As a result, a person is faced with a choice - either periodically apply drugs courses and continue so nearly all his life, or reconcile with the fact that the result will not be permanent and unstable.
In a set of muscle mass, not only and notAs many drugs as training, nutrition and recovery. If an amateur, training 3-4 times a week in the hall without a pass and, eating "on weight", can not get 500 grams per month, he does something wrong. Most likely, training loads for him are minimal, and food is not enough. Either there is an excess of the allowable training load and not the optimal distribution of macronutrients. Most often, a fitness lover really has enough multivitamins, fish oil and ordinary food to gain weight.
