If you’re asking yourself this question, you should probably think about your goals twice, probably 50% of the people that take or have taken steroids in their life have done it because they were or are mentally and physically ready, you always hear on the news about this guy and this gal taking steroids at the Olympics, NFL or MLB, most of these people take them because it’s their career, it’s their life, and they make money off of it. Bodybuilders probably take all of the credit when it comes to steroid consumption. When somebody sees a muscular guy walk by, the first thing that comes to mind is “That guy takes steroids,” prejudice is a potent weapon in modern-day society, since I have my fair part of knowledge that I have acquired along my lifetime, I can say that there is a high chance that the guy that just walked by is indeed steroid-free and here’s why.
The human body is such a complex machine that it’s so hard to understand it in general terms; each body is entirely different in its composition and how it works. If you walk into a gym, you will have the small guy and the big guy (both are natural). What makes them different? Firstly, they are genetically diverse. Therefore, their muscular potential and development differ entirely. If you notice, the big guy is probably lifting heavy. With a lot of intensity, while the small guy is probably messing around, the big guy’s diet is perhaps full of good caloric source foods.
In contrast, the small guy eats junk. Well, the same thing applies if you want to take steroids. If you don’t lift or exercise as you should, and your diet isn’t perfect, it’s not going to matter.
If you research a particular professional bodybuilder, you will find that he was determined and driven even at a young age. He had genetic potential. He was patient. As soon as he reached his maximum natural potential and saw that it was time to take it to the next step, he started taking performance enhancement drugs. The PED’s alone didn’t get him the god-like physique. It was hard work and dedication.
So that takes us to the critical question, Should you take steroids? It depends, first. Ask yourself, how long have you been exercising? How old are you? When you exercise, do you take it to the ultimate level? How’s your diet? What do you want out of steroids? Can you achieve what you wish to without steroids? And lastly, is it worth it? If you train with passion, you love exercising, you want to look like Hercules, and you’ve done everything in your power to get what you want. It still isn’t enough, then consider taking steroids, but if you haven’t done any of the above, first try doing them and then ask yourself the same questions again. If your answers are yes to everything, then you can start your first steroid cycle to create a completely superior version of yourself.
