I will be doing one more tested meet in January and then I am considering TRT which will disqualify me from competing natural. I am also 43 and honestly, at a point where I just may give up power-lifting all together, or go with testosterone. We will see…. I need to do more research, which is why I love your blog so much. You have been quiet lately. Um… I personally think anyone who has the audacity to call themselves Alpha-Destiny is a tool regardless of what they do. Also, for the record, I think he looks like shit. Steroids or not, I train with some of the worlds best (and a lot use, a lot don’t. Most of them are pretty honest about it.) and if this guy came into our gym with that name, he would most likely be laughed out of the place. Alpha-Destiny… I would kick my own ass if I went with that name. Sit down little fella… the grown-ups are talking.
There are also artificial or synthetic steroids called anabolic steroids that can be ingested. Anabolic steroids affect the testosterone levels in males. Since the testosterone is affected, so is the steroid user's muscle mass. These types of steroids are the ones that some athletes use to gain an advantage in their sport. The way anabolic steroids work is to increase how athletes develop muscles. When athletes use synthetic steroids, they are at an advantage in that their muscle mass is usually greater than other athletes, giving them an advantage in sports.
