Muscle-Building Workout and Diet

This episode is supported by hims. With over three million Americans having used steroids, the desire to bulk up is strong But what even happens to your body when you take steroids and are there major risks to performance-enhancing drugs? Every time you pump a weight at the gym your muscles experience damage, but the body recovers by forming new muscle protein strands to repair the muscle fibers. Over time these strands increase in thickness and number and ultimately if muscle protein synthesis is greater than muscle protein breakdown your muscles will grow. The degree of growth is largely regulated by testosterone, which increases protein synthesis. It’s why, generally, men have larger muscle mass than women as they have higher levels of testosterone. Now steroids are any compound with a specific 4-carbon ring structure, so the term steroid actually includes some chemicals that can be used to treat fever and headaches and even sex hormones like estrogen and testosterone. But the type of steroid we’ll be looking at actually mimic natural testosterone with the intention to enhance performance and are used by more than 15% of gym-goers. Within a single day of taking steroids the expression of your genes will begin to change. Steroids easily enter your cells and bind to the androgen receptor. At this point they can move into the nucleus and attach to your DNA, which activates hundreds of genes to increase protein synthesis, while slowing protein breakdown. In the end, people who take steroids can have three to five times more nuclei in some muscle cells. Steroids can also stop the differentiation of fat stem cells and decrease a person’s body fat. Days in and your quickly increasing muscle size and strength, while also protecting muscle fibers against damage, making steroids ideal for exercise tolerance and recovery as well. But continue to take them and your behavior may start to change. Because steroid receptors are found in parts of our central nervous system like the forebrain, hypothalamus and pituitary gland, steroids can lead to the classic roid rage. A study of athletes taking steroids showed 20% developed higher manic and depressive scores than non-users. Mice given steroids over ten weeks also become more aggressive towards other mice put in the same cages. Male mice also become more dominant and are more willing to compete for sex with female mice. But that sex drive may not translate to better sex. For female users steroids can interfere with the estrus cycle and may decrease sexual drive. Masculinization can occur as well with female users gaining deeper voices and starting to grow more body and facial hair. Male users may experience sperm cell abnormalities and decreased sperm count. Steroids also decreased natural production of hormones that are necessary for maintaining testicular size, meaning your balls will shrink. And since most steroid users follow a cycle of on and off dosing periods natural levels of testosterone can be quite low at times causing erectile dysfunction and decreased libido in males. 40% of male users also developed enlarged breast tissue, as steroids break down into estradiol, which stimulates the growth of mammary tissue. Finally steroids can cause a high level of acne in almost half of users and increase the risk of heart disease and stroke So yes, steroids will make you bulk up faster and improve your athletic ability, but as with most things, comes with a set of risks and side effects that you’ll likely experience as well.

  6. I’ve been working out for 3 years naturally and was really happy with my physic, but later I started using dianabol and got heart attack 7 months later… it ain’t worth it…

  7. Meanwhile, other horrible drugs like alcohol and cigarettes are available. All thanks to our dumbass government. Because they want you to be weak and dumb and perpetual slaves that cant fight back or question.

  8. Yes the balls may shrink due to not having to produce testosterone any more. But if you are cycling for lets say 8 weeks your balls are most likley to recover to their normal size

  12. but what if you are all the time tired and with no energy, bc of low testosterone, in that case i believe using testosterone would be ideal.

  13. I’ve done about 5 cycles of steroids. Never had anything negative happen to me besides my balls shrunk while I was on. Always went back. And pimples on my back once in a while. Never anything crazy. Just one a month. The super side effects come from doing a cycle wrong or overdoing it. Which imo is wrong.

  14. So what if you only use it once? Would you experience all the negative side effects or is that only for continued use?

  15. As ı know .. in one month my body can change from bad to very good (with muscles) so one month using it will be risky too ? Or it is okay ?
