If you want to go the route of steroids (or prohormone supplements), although I don’t recommend it, follow what I’m about to tell you so that you can use them to not only help you in your bodybuilding passion…but without fucking up your health as well.
First of all, let me talk about what steroids even are. It’s basically testosterone. There are hundreds of compounds out there, all of converting into testosterone one way or another. Because they’re hormonal by nature, they’ll of course cause you to experience increased muscle mass, but at the same time can bring a wide range of negative side effects as well.
On cycle support as well as post cycle therapy should be used to help you alleviate some of those side effects. On cycle support helps you to control estrogen, and compounds like TUDCA will protect the liver if you’re taking oral steroids.
Post cycle therapy on the other hand, will help regulate your hormonal levels and bring them back to normal, that way you can keep the gains you made during your cycle.
Most people lose their gains, and really put a negative effect on their health after using steroids because one of these two parts of their cycle are either missing or not effectively implemented.
Types of steroid compounds
There are many types of steroids. Some will help you to reduce your body fat and increase vascularity, while others will cause you to gain weight and look gigantic. Some of the most popular are dymethazine, superdrol, and epistane.
When you are researching the kind of steroids you want to use, always keep in mind that no two steroids or prohormones will effect you in the same way. While epistane has little to no side effects and is non methylated (easier on the liver), superdrol is more dangerous and comes with multiple side effects.
This also means that you should never cycle any two prohormones for a set length, so always do your homework before you ever start a prohormone. You should know exactly what kind of results you’d like to achieve, as well as the price you will pay in side effects and how to prevent them.
My currently favorite is a prohormone called Anabeta Elite. Not only is this extremely potent, but it has very little side effects and is one I highly recommend.
Natural Test Boosters
Since I don’t necessarily think anyone should be on steroids, if you’re going to go that route I feel better knowing that you now have a good set of guidelines and know what to expect for your upcoming cycle. With that said, you are always better off with more natural test boosters like d -aspartic acid, tribulus, or DHEA.
These will not give you the same results as a typical anabolic steroid, but they are still proven to increase test levels, boost muscle mass, and enhance performance in the gym without the dangerous toll that steroids take on your health.
