There's something that I like saying a lot; I'm Mother Nature's number one fan. I can go on and on about how nature is the best source of almost everything we could ever need. Bodybuilding is an art that's centered on growth. Growth in muscles, discipline and even in patience. In other words, bodybuilding is a process that many undergo in order to achieve the different results they require. Many have turned to the use of steroids to speed up this growing process. Whatever it is done in ignorance of the side effects that can be caused by steroids, one thing is for sure. They all started out with the best of intentions at heart.
The side effects are so real in the people around us. While you'll get that body which you've been dying to have, that's exactly what might happen. You may end up killing yourself over a ripped abs. it's just simply not worth it. If especially you are a parent and even more so if your kids are young, think of how life would be for them when you die having spent all your hard earned money on your medical bill. Steroids can take a heavy toll on your life that would have given you the creeps just by imagining it. The side effects range from spots and acne to cancer of the liver, arteriosclerosis and masculinization among other side effects. There are many athletes who career was cut short due to the effects of steroids on them. Like every other substance that's abused, it all starts slowly. Did you know that an addict can take up to 100 times more stereoids than what an athlete requires?
There are very many bodybuilders and athletes who are successful and are top in their league that have gotten there without the use of steroids. The fundamental blocks of bodybuilding do not include stereoids. All you need is a good diet that works for you and an exercise program that is in line with your goals. Proteins are bodybuilding foods as we all know and are therefore very important to every bodybuilder. Ensure that you take plenty of proteins both in the form of whole foods as well as in the form of supplements. This will ensure that your body has what it takes to build muscles without having to use synthetic hormones to achieve this. Carbohydrates and a bit of fat should also be taken to provide energy in order to not only workout more efficiently but also to provide the energy required to perform the various metabolic processes. If your having problems with your diet, consult an expert, professional dietitian.
I would recommend that you should go to a gym and if possible, have a gym partner. You should work out under the supervision of a qualified trainer who will ensure that your technique is right. Do not over train your body just because you competition is drawing nearer and your still out of shape. Be patient with your body and you'll get the results you desire.
