Why Be Drug Free In Bodybuilding
Lets make a point: bodybuilding has come to mean excessive drug abuse. I
hope I don't destroy any dreams, but all freaks you see in bodybuilding magazines,
pros or amateurs and even some if not most of the 'natural' bodybuilders take
illegal drugs. Testosterone, steroids, growth hormone, you name it.
Get some facts together
And there is also a strong psychological argument against 'roid usage:
- Roids are illegal for a reason: They will harm your health. Its not only a
question of side effects, but also because juice can be tainted (black market)
Side effects in males:
Side effects in females:
- shrunken testicles
- decreased sperm production which can lead to impotence
- premature baldness
- enlargement of the prostate gland
- breast enlargement
- liver damage that can lead to death
- may experience severe acne on the face and body
- irregular periods
- premature closure of the growth plates leading to stunted growth
- deepening of the voice
- growth of the clitoris
- Many users are not expert enough and take high amounts, mix different
juice and generally don't know exactly what they do
- Most users get addicted and don't stop their cycles when presumed to
- Associations, magazines and bodybuilders are not honest about their usage, its
- Everybody will have to come down from roids one day. Look at any past bodybuilding
hero like Arnold, Franco Columbo, Haney, Dorian Yates and decide for yourself
whats left without drugs!
How will you feel about yourself and your body when people are staring at
you and you know that your exceptional physique was not built by your own will but
mostly by chemicals? In contrary, self-built muscles have a
very positive effect on one's consciousness.
Drug Free Bodybuilding Is Different
Natural bodybuilding is not easy, because you can only get from your body what your genes
and your will allow to. Compared to the gains possible with steroids you might be soon
disappointed by your progress. Mistakes like wrong nutrition, wrong training volume,
excessive partying/smoking/drinking will make you loose your muscles fast again. Your friends might laugh about you because you still don't look like Arnold after years.
So why do it anyway? You can't get Mr. Olympia without drugs, no way, but you can get
Mr. PERSONALITY (fill in your name) with a pleasing, great, strong and healthy body.
Drug free bodybuilders know much better how to build muscles the real way, because
they have to build the muscles themselves!
