To take steroids or not to take steroids is a dilemma almost every person actively participating in bodybuilding has. For those of you who don’t know, Steroids and Pro-hormones are chemical compounds which artificially stimulate anabolic activity in your body to make it bigger, better, faster and stronger.
Although IFBB, Internal Federation of body Building, has banned the use of steroids in professional bodybuilding, but it seems to have no deterring effect on professional bodybuilders. Most, bodybuilders openly admit to be using these performance enhancement drugs.
Now, getting back to the point, should you be using steroids or not? If you plan to make it big (no pun intended) in bodybuilding, you will be forced to use it at some point or the other because when all of your competitors will be better built than you, you will need to take steroids to have a more level playing field.
If you are one of those casual body builders, who don’t intend to take up the sport professionally or are morally against the use of steroids, then you can consider the following substances, which are not steroids in true sense but have more or less the same effect.
Also known as Methoxy, is known for its ability to produce weight gain without fat. Moreover, it has all the anabolic effects of a Pro-hormone but no side effect like Androgenic disorder which is a very common problem with steroids.
A study was conducted by University of Delaware, to examine whether the compound really helped in gaining lean mass as its patent claim. After the 8 week long study, it was concluded that Methoxy was effective, as each subject gained 2.8 lbs of lean mass on average.
This legal steroid has the ability to guide the nutrients consumed towards muscle building, which is desired by every body builder.
Ecolysterone is one of the very few bio stimulator discovered till now. Bio stimulation's unlock the true growth potential of your body, by promoting anabolic activity in your body. It occurs naturally in plants (e.g. suma) so you don’t need to worry about any side effects.
It has excellent rate of success if we go by the studies conducted on this performance enhancing compound. You can expect about 9-10 % reduction in body fat levels and 7-8% of lean mass gain which is spectacular as that’s equivalent to what artificially produced steroids are able to achieve.
