What does it feel like to be on anabolic steroids? Similar to HRT or worse?

    I always got the impression that it doesn't feel good.

    Roid rage, mood swings, and other side effects.

    HGH and TRT on the other hand seem like they make people FEEL good both mentally and physically.

    Anaboilic steroids sound like they give you a huge physical advantage but not so much the positive mental benefits (elevated mood, focus, better sleep, motivation, confidence) that HRT does.

    It makes me wonder why in this day and age heavy lifters even bother with old fashioned roids when they can get something far less dangerous in HRT.

    So much misinformsation here.

    Trt would bring levels to a normal range. So let's say a 40 year old man would have the test levels of 22 year old. This is why traditionally trt is for older men. The only younger ones you see damaged their endocrine system from using steroids. This is what you see from most examples in the UFC. Nothing wrong with it, but it's the truth.

    Steroids are not all the same. For example tren can make the user feel bad. Mental health stuff, high blood pressure, out of breath, acne, mood swings, lack of sleep. Basically all body builders use this but a terrible choice for athletes.

    The most common dose and drug would be using testosterone from 350 to 800 mgs a week. This makes you feel amazing. More energery, positive outlook, more stamina, huge sex drive, amazing workouts. This is the drug that most people try and go " damn, I could get used to that " . Of course their can be side effects. That also depends on the person and their knowledge of how to avoid them. That, and different drugs effect everyone differently.

    So my point being you could take 10 steroid users and get a mixed bag of results and effects. Steroid can't be a blanket term. When you break it down some can be very beneficial and feel nice. Others ruin people's lives on some occasions

    Isn't @Eusung the guy with already really high natty test levels who kept making threads about trying to get on TRT?

    Anavar - You will feel fitter and energetic and gain lean muscle but not really bulk up. You will lose most of your gains if you don't have a testosterone base.

    Testosterone - You'll feel good provided you stay in safe ranges, far more energy and you'll gain quite well if your diet and training are good.

    Dianabol - You will gain faster than nearly anything else I can mention. You will feel sluggish, your muscle pumps while working out will be painful and if you don't do it with a testosterone base you'll most likely lose 70% of what you gain in the months after you stop using it.

    Trenbolone - Your mental health will be a mess, you will sweat like nobodies business, get ready to change your bed sheets each night. You will gain huge amounts of muscle and strength in a very quick time. Your cardio will die completely and you'll hate the idea of stairs. If you're an aggressive person normally stay away from Tren as you will find it harder to control yourself. It has also never actually been made for human use.

    Turinabol - Similar to Anavar but with more bulking. You may feel sluggish and depressed on Turinabol and much like anavar you will lose your gains if you don't have a testosterone base.

    All these things can effect your mental health as they will effect your hormones. There are so many different types of steroids available but using illegal ones you run the risk of contaminated gear. If you aren't prescribed them by your doctor and you have your heart set on using them at least consult with your doctor first.

    Note - I have never used steroids, but I research them quite a lot as a hobby.

    Depends on what you're using it for. Testosterone cream has a very specific uses and should only be used if prescribed by a doctor, over the counter testosterone cream is most likely just throwing your money away.

    ============


    This is pretty much right. I'm 47, on TRT and occasionally throw in a month or two of proviron or anavar. The difference can definitely be felt. You will get stronger. I average about 15-20% + on most of the basic lifts in the gym while on the gear. Assuming you're eating a basically good diet, enough protein, etc.. you'll get more vascular, more definition in the muscles, and your sex drive will be increased.

    Once you are off the orals like anavar , you'll lose your vascularity and hardened look, gain a bit of water weight and strength will decrease. However, you'll still be a few % stronger than you were before you did them if you keep up your training.

    On a TRT dose of Test cypionate, you can still make good gains, progress in your lifts and look good. The steroids like anavar just take it up a notch. It does come with a cost, your lipids will be hit hard, think HDL cut by 50% or more , liver enzymes could also be elevated.

    Hope this helps.

    People who complain of their dick not working on anavar generally go far over the recommended dosages as well.
