Have you ever taken steroids or any other illegal anabolic substances... HGH or whatever..?

I've thought about trying it out but side-effects and it getting in the way of me competing in MMA made me change my mind.

I competed in Varisty sports. And it was never ever talked about. I doubt anyone i knew used them. There is random drug testing anyways for CIS.

But back in highschool, there was word floating around that quite a few hockey and b-ball players were using. No substance testing in highschool so i guess they could get away with it.

Our Rival school in HS football used them and they won state every year. These doods were HUGE, and they had tempers, and they were ugly. End of story.

Nah man! The negatives far outweigh the positives! Ive never taken them. Just Protein Shakes and Creatine. Heres a bit of info on the risks if you already didn't know!

"Acne. Liver damage. Increased risk of heart disease. These are just a few of the side effects associated with anabolic steroid abuse. And there's more.

The side effects are severe. Men who use steroids also may develop gynecomastia (the development of breasts), priapism (painful prolonged erection) and edema from sodium and water retention. They also will be more prone to cardiovascular problems since steroids decrease high-density lipoprotein levels (HDL) or ''good'' cholesterol, and increase low-density lipoprotein levels (LDL) or ''bad'' cholesterol.

Coupled with hypertension and negative changes in myocardial tissue, steroids users are at an increased risk for heart attack as well.

Of additional concern are alterations in psyche and behavior (i.e., aggression, physical dependence) and decreased immune function. Changes in the reproductive system, such as a reduction in testicle size, sperm count and mobility, and a decrease in the levels of endogenous testosterone and other sex hormones are common.

There is an even scarier risk of steroid abuse: death. Steroid users who share needles are putting themselves at risk for developing infections such as HIV, hepatitis or other viral diseases.

The best way to improve performance and increase muscle mass is to follow a well-designed program that challenges both your body and your mind. No drug can do that for you."

I've never used them. I know however, that they enhance your risk of heart attacks and strokes, you become more prone to embolysm after taking them.

Did anyone see that Greg Valentino program, "The man whose arms exploded?"

One guy in that program was saying that the steroids left him with a "Shrunken penis, testicles the size of peanuts" and the "Testerone level of a 12 year old girl".

Plenty of good reasons not to take them.

Yeah but that was a pretty extreme case too. I know some guys that have used for shorter periods and got nothing but good results and I know some guys that won't ever do it again.

I'll do like the rampage fan guy and stick with creatine and protein.

I thought it was more common than this though.

I think steroids only shrink the testicles since they lose their function. He might just have tiny penis by nature

Tiny penis or not, he looks disgusting.

Yeah! The penis only looks smaller because the rest of his body is so huge in comparison! But it must be a let down for women thinking it'll be the size of a babys arm, only for it to be the size of a babys dick!

I believe its effective as of taking it, much like women taking the contraceptive pill for a month can permanently alter hormone production in their bodies and brains, even short term steroid abuse can create lasting risks.

In short, just dont take them!

I would never take steroids. That crap messes you up big time and it would feel like I cheated to get results.

I have no problem with Creatine, but I dont use that either cause I like the challenge of pushing my body to the limit going all natural. But I am a supporter of Creatine and protein shakes and all that, it really does wonders in a safe way.

Except when you overtake Protein supplements, which can cause Acidosis, knocking your body PH out of its narrow working range, and that is bad news!
