In the far 1930s, scientists were able to synthesize the first anabolic drugs. Over time, they improved it, and as soon as these drugs appeared on the market, the world of sports, including bodybuilding, have changed. The world has turned upside down. After all, the sport started a new era: athletes began to run faster and further, jump higher, lift more, etc. They began to set previously unseen records.
When you are taking steroids, the level of testosterone is increasing significantly (with the exception of progestin steroids, for example such as Nandrolone). Testosterone contributes to a significant acceleration of protein synthesis in the body, reduces the recovery time, as well as prevents catabolism, results in the growth of muscle tissue.
To obtain the maximum gain from the use of anabolic steroids, you must follow the basic rules:
- take high-quality products;
- conduct supplementing correctly;
- work out hard;
- adhere to training schedule and diet.
Effect of steroids
Effect of steroids are divided into 2 groups: anabolic and androgenic.

- strengthening of bones, ligaments and tendons;
- significant increase in strength and endurance;
- burning fatty tissue and much more.
- baldness, but at the same time there is increased growth of hair on the face and body;

The damage of steroids
Steroids have the following side effects: irritability, decreased quality and quantity of sperm, increased blood pressure, impotence, infertility, gynecomastia, hair loss, masculinization, liver damage, myocardial hypertrophy, delayed growth at a young age, acne, addiction, mood swings, testicular atrophy, fluid retention and others. All of the above side effects have a different frequency of occurrence.
In connection with the fact that during the supplementing with anabolic steroids the body artificially receives testosterone, it ceases to synthesize its own. At the end of the supplementing program, the level of natural testosterone is approaching zero. In order to return its normal level, you should make a post cycle therapy at the end of the AS program.
