What does it really take to achieve the type of body we see plastered all over social media? Multiple training sessions per day? Nothing to eat but chicken and rice, with a little broccoli if you’re lucky?
Well, it’s a cocktail of things. Things like determination, drive, and resilience all come into it at some point – with a little know-how as well, of course.
Should steroids become a go-to strategy during your transformation, though? Well, some users will tell you that they are the best things since sliced bread. But those that are aware of the consequences will tell you be wary, and they are absolutely right. Let’s find out why.
We’ll start with Anadrol. Anadrol is an extremely strong androgenic steroid that was first produced in the 1960s. It can increase your red blood cell count, so it can be good for those who suffer from severe anaemia.
However, Anadrol is thought to be one of the most powerful steroids available commercially. Such a powerful steroid must have adverse side effects. Let’s take a look at 5 of them:
1. WATER RETENTION
Water retention is basically an increased amount of fluid under the skin, and this can become a significant issue when using Anadrol. It can lead to a decrease in visible muscle definition and a look that can only be described as bloated.
2. CONNECTIVE TISSUE DAMAGE
I know this sounds ridiculous, but Anadrol is actually too powerful. It can increase your mass by as much as 20–30 lbs in 6 weeks. Such a rapid increase is too much for your connective tissues to handle. This can lead to detached muscles. Getting them surgically reconnected isn’t pretty.
Gynecomastia is enlargement of the male breast tissue. As well as looking embarrassing, the tissue can grow unevenly and be tender and painful. If it’s a well-built chest you want, as seen on the front of fitness magazines, Anadrol might not be right for you.
4. STRONG ANDROGENIC SIDE EFFECTS
As we mentioned already, Anadrol is very powerful. Some of the side effects caused by other steroids, such as unwanted body hair, oily skin, and acne, are even more severe when caused by Anadrol. They may also surface faster in Anadrol users than in other steroid users – which is pretty damn quick.
5. LIVER DAMAGE
We know from looking at other steroids that the chemical C-17 Alpha Alkylated (C-17aa) means that the steroid has been altered to survive the first pass through the liver. As you can imagine, this doesn’t do the liver any good at all! Compared with other steroids, Anadrol has an extremely high number of milligrams per dosage – higher than other popular steroids such as Winstrol and Dianabol – which further increases the stress the liver faces.
Deliberately putting yourself in a position where you could seriously damage your health is, if you think about it, extremely selfish. After all, your loved ones also have to live with the consequences if you become permanently unwell or worse.
Don’t be selfish. Yes, Anadrol can help you bulk up quickly, and that might be exactly what you’re looking for, but not at the expense of your long-term health. Be smart and explore safer options such as Anadrole. It’s no good looking like a Greek god on the outside if you’re crumbling away on the inside.
One thing that should be made clear is that steroids prescribed by medical professionals and those cooked up in an underground lab are completely different. The ones used medically are prepared properly to avoid contamination, prescribed specifically for diagnosed medical conditions, and are taken in far smaller amounts than those used for aesthetic improvements.
