Here we are going to talk about anabolic steroids. Anabolic steroids are actually a synthetic form of human-made, variations of the number one male hormone which is testosterone. The full name of anabolic steroids is anabolic-androgenic steroids. Where anabolic means muscle building and androgenic means increased male sex hormone. there are a lot of uses for steroids in the human body but here we will talk about uses for steroids to build muscles.
There is a lot of news going on about anabolic steroids nowadays. It is really making the bustle but not necessarily for the right reasons. Let’s take some time to consider what makes the prevalent use of these performance enhancers besides the fact that people are “cheating.”
First of all, let’s discuss whether this is really cheating or at least try to gain perspective on this. To do this we should know what we are talking about. Anabolic means to build up or enhanced (rather than catabolic which means to tear apart or break down). The steroid is a type of molecule which is found in the body and because of its makeup serves as a hormone and regulates the synthesis of DNA by entering the nucleus and attaching itself to different parts of the machinery that produces the DNA. So these anabolic steroids are simply substances that go to muscle, among other tissue and help them to build it up.
Basically, they are just adding into our bodies where there is already a natural process going on. Those people who have naturally higher levels of testosterone are going to have naturally bigger muscles and also greater potential if they work them. So now the question is this, is it really ability that goes into being extra strong or is it a crapshoot. I choose it for a reason because I don’t think that it is cheating so much as potentiating the actual ability that someone has in a sport. There are two big reasons behind my thinking about it. The first reason is you still have to do a hard workout to have big muscles while taking steroids. And the second reason is you still have to be good at swinging a bat and choosing the right pitch to be good at hitting. In both cases you are only using a “tool” that is helping you to maximize your potential, much like sunglasses help you to see a fly ball better in the outfield but it doesn’t catch the ball for you.
All of you must be thinking that why I don’t think that anabolic steroids should be legal. To understand me you must hear my reason though-not because I think it is cheating but instead, I think it is not good for the health of the player. You must think that muscles that make you stronger aren’t the only thing that these substances affect. They affect your heart a lot and put you at increased risk of sudden death. a lot of bodybuilders have died due to this. They also make your muscles very big for your body to support, which means a greater chance of tendon, ligament, and bone injury. There are many things in our body that are affected in a negative way as well that make these things totally not worth it. So there are also steroids side effects.
Now, most of you must be thinking that are bodybuilders on steroids, so the answer is most of the bodybuilding competitions is being played on anabolic steroids nowadays But there are few competitions also available in which no bodybuilder can go after taking anabolic steroids because they check your urine and blood before the competition. So the answer to your question that are bodybuilders on steroids is no, there are also some natural bodybuilders available.
