When I was a young man, I had the typical mindset of all male teens and thought that by adding muscle and changing my physique it would automatically bring me success with women explains Michael Osland.
Today we live in a world where many people believe everyone is. As shallow as they are and anyone who does not look like a model is considered to be unattractive.
In my case I started lifting weights in order to become a better athlete and help me win a scholarship for university. If you’re reading this article though, I can bet that you were not looking at becoming a powerlifter or strongman when you first started training. Your goal was more likely to get bigger and ripped combined with increased strength.
I want to talk about the dangers of steroid use and why you should avoid them at all costs!
Since then I have met over 100,000 clients and have read thousands of articles, books and watched hundreds of videos on the subject. We now live in a time where many people do not think twice about using steroids because they believe it is normal and everyone is doing it says, Michael Osland.
I want to take a second and point out something that might be shocking; some of the best-looking guys in your gym are most likely steroid users! I’m not saying this to insult anyone or call them out after they spent years training their ass off to get where they are. What I am doing is simply showing you how widespread steroid use really is and hopefully getting you thinking about what kind of effects these drugs have on the human body.
Steroid Users in Your Gym Are Most Likely Using Them for One of Two Reasons:
To Get Bigger and Ripped (For Casual Use)
To Get More Cut (For Competitive Use)
Why The Mass Monsters Are Often Used By Steroid Sellers!
A lot of people might be surprised to know this but the reason. Many steroid sellers use these types of guys in their advertisements are simply that it works! It tricks all the beginners and intermediate lifters into thinking they too can get an incredible physique without spending years in the gym says, Michael Osland.
In all fairness, when someone sees a mass monster shirtless for the first time, they appear to have worked incredibly hard for their results and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that until you discover how easy it was for them to achieve those same results. They take advantage of your ignorance by letting you think steroids are healthy or even necessary to build a great body when in fact; nothing could be further from the truth! The sad part about all of this is if you take the time to look in a mirror and compare yourself to any of them you will realize that they don’t even have a six-pack!
Once again, I want to make it clear that what I am writing here is not an attack on anyone or their physique. The only reason I’m using these guys as examples is that they are so accessible for people to take pictures with and share all over the internet explains Michael Osland. If your goal is to get big and ripped then steroids might be something you need to consider but if you are looking for anything else there is no way in hell they should enter your mind. You can achieve amazing results without ever touching a single steroid and the best part about it is you won’t ruin your health at the same time.
So what kind of benefits do steroids really offer anyway?
Steroids can help you achieve much quicker results in much less time! Sounds like a fair trade right? Wrong! You will completely lose all the benefits once you stop using them and won’t even come close to your “peak” look until months after you stopped taking them says Michael Osland. Even worse, the damage they caused to your body during this short period can never be reversed! Steroids Have Many Negative Side-Effects That Include: Acne Scarring Hair Loss Liver Damage Heart Problems Mental Issues Gyno (Gynecomastia) And Testicular Shrinkage Other issues also include high blood pressure, kidney failure and many more that I don’t even feel.
Do I really need to say this? If you don’t want to die at 40 years old, lose all your hair and have massive health problems then stay the FUCK away from steroids! They will ruin your entire life and if that doesn’t scare you then you more than likely already have some serious problems that nobody should attempt to fix. Also, just so we’re clear, testosterone boosters and fat burners do not count as steroids and they are both completely safe but almost always a complete waste of money.
