Training and Nutrition
If you only take steroids and do not exercise and maintain a proper diet, prepare to get disappointed. One of the primary reasons why people use anabolic steroids is to gain muscle, but steroids cannot build muscles by themselves. You also need to train properly and eat well.
Your training regimen should be a mixture of both strength training and muscle building exercises. Undertake strength training exercises such as deadlifts, bench presses and squats. For muscle gain, do a minimum of eight sets of each exercise, with lighter weights. Also do tricep pushdowns, pec flyes, bicep curls and other concentrated exercises that will increase your muscle size. Another advantage of anabolic steroids is that they can decrease the time you need to rest between your reps.Training and Nutrition
Another effect of taking steroids is an increase in protein synthesis. They can bring about an increase in muscle mass and strength. That is why people who are suffering from debilitating diseases like chronic hepatitis and AIDS are administered steroids.
But for the steroid to work, you should provide the raw material, which is protein. Meat, eggs, cheese, milk and yoghurt are rich sources of protein. You can also obtain proteins from pulses.
Cholesterol-rich food such as egg yolk and dry fruits should also be eaten. However, limit your intake of these foods because cholesterol has a tendency to cause deposits in blood vessels. Also consume lots of fiber. It will add bulk to your diet and prevent constipation. Potassium rich food such as dates, milk, apricot and peaches should also be eaten because steroids can cause a depletion in the level of potassium in the blood.
If you want to start a steroid cycle and if it is your first time, start with Testosterone. You may think, why Testosterone when there are so many other anabolic steroids on the market? Testosterone is a highly versatile anabolic steroid (most anabolic steroids are Testosterone derivatives) and it is well tolerated by the body.
Never Start an Oral-Only Steroid Cycle
Under no circumstance should you start an oral anabolic-only steroid cycle. Many first time users of anabolic steroids, will often start with oral anabolic steroids. It may be that the individual does not like needles or because oral anabolic steroids are easier to procure than injectable ones. The fact is, oral anabolic steroids are not made for solitary runs. But some people do use them to supplement their injectable anabolic steroid cycles.
Proper protocols should be followed when you are injecting yourself with anabolic steroids. If you are not serious about them, then anabolic steroids are not for you.
