    Ok guys Im sick and tired of people talking out there ass when it comes to steroids. I am not claiming to be an expert at all, but from my days of bodybuilding I know enough and I am hoping with some help we will be able to debunk some of the more common myths about steroids.

    Please anyone with steroid knowledge add other myths and comment on the ones I have posted

    I would like to add that I am in no way trying to promote the use of steroids

    Thankyou for your time

    1-Steroids decrease flexibility
    Not necesarily true, if you train for sheer mass, sure you will loose some flexibiity, but take for example Baseball players who have to be precise and hit a tiny ball travelling 90+ miles per hour. Also the Current Mr Olympia weighs 295 pounds in contest shape and can do the splitz.

    2- Steroids Decrease endurance
    Total bullshit, many steroids greatly increas endurance by creating more red blood cells. Equipose is a favourite steroid for endurance athletes. A person who weighs 180 pounds naturally can easily become a 205 pounder with less body fat and Superior endurance with a nice cycle of test and Eq.

    3- Steroids dont help and fighter- See above posts

    So...Saying you won't end up stiff as a log and with no gas if you roid is promoting roids?
    Ignorance is never a good thing,not even when it comes to illegal substances...too bad so many people can't seem to grasp that.

    I would tell that to Saku if he would come online or call me. Seeing that he wont I will maintain that roided atheletes perform better. Sure if they juice up to a point that they can barely function they wont be, but im talking about useing roids..not abusing them. They are banned from most sports for a reason.

    I don't think anyone would argue what your saying about steroids, and that is precisely why they are illegal in sports because they do enhance an athletes ability and that is considered cheating.

    Not to mention a host of other health related problems including not being able to get wood when you come off them. I know guys that have actually had to see a doctor after coming off a cycle to get Viagra because they couldn't perform their husbandly duties. So while they may look good, they are built for show not go. Thats enough for me to stay away from them.

    Those are not myths, certain steroids can accelerate baldness if you are prone to it already and you can develope Gyno (bitch tits) if you do not take your estrogen blockers.

    Those aren't the mythes surrounding steroids, those are the facts. Some myths are they shrink your penis, just dumb. That's like saying they woudl shrink the size of your foot or your ears etc... just doesn't work like that. Roid rage is a little overdone. There certanly are cases of roid rage but it's certianly not the norm. They are generally with people who have some sort of imbalnce to begin with or people who are alrady prone to rage and violence like "angry drunks". You woudln't say that everyone that drinks becomes and angry drunk, steroids are the smae thing. It might be maybe 2% at most. Again not saying it doesn't happen but that everyone that takes them isn't running around on some killing spree running down kids in the neighborhood with theri car like it's made out to be.


    For a long time Dr's and the like tried to discount the uses of steroids in an attempt to try and keep people from using them. If they could convince people they didn't work people wouldn't use them. The same thing was done with pot. They would have public service comercials that had peopel smoking pot and how it made them psycho and kill people and jump out windows to kill themselves etc... whcih was total BS. Now that a lot of the mythes of steroids have been debunked. For a long time people denied that athletes were using. That it was only a couple guys, that they didn't work, that MLB pitchers wouldn't use them because it wouldn't help them and low and behold the majority of people who tested positive in MLBN where pitchers etc... people can't kid themselves anymore. IMO that's a good thing. I think overstating the negative side effects only hurts there credibility and gives people an excuse to use them. That if they lie about some of the side effects then they must be lying about all of them etc... I think it's better to be correct.

    The guy is not teling people to juice up. He is saying there not as bad as the media wants you to believe. Did anyy of you catch real sports on hbo a coupe months ago? Steroids are banned beause when they are abused they are harmful. When taken prop. they pose little or no health risks. How many of you have taken pro hormones or eca stacks? Those are now banned but they were available over the counter not that long ago. So all of you who have never taken or researched steroids or pro hormones shut the fuck up and read alittle. I am NOT saying go out and get some gear, I'm saying if your only going by what your mommy told you then don't post. Post's like "they make you impotent and bald or give you tities" shows how ignorant you are. Not all cause that and it only happens when you abuse them.

    Why do you think the are not allowed in sports,if they didn't give you an edge people wouldn't take them. Abuse is the real prob. not the substabce people take. Bottom line is this, if you want to compete then you can't take them. If you don't and you do your homework on what your taking, you'll be fine. Just let your doc know what your planning and get regular check ups to be safe. And this, only a real pussy will take them to get ahead. Train your ass of without them for a few years, then if you still think you need them then maybe you don't belong and should get a new hobby or sport. Real men get it done without!

    When a doctor gives your a perscription to take steriods they are fine. When you are using them illegally to get bigger and stronger they are bad. Besides the fact that its cheating. If everyone isnt using them the game is unfair. I realize some argue they dont do as much damage as many would like us to think, and I've actually read that with professional supervision some think they are the fountain of youth. But when people get them on the black market and use them without proper guidance its very dangerous and should never be done. If they become legal as performance enhancers which they never will, then everyone would be forced to use them just to compete. Because they do work.
