Nowadays, people have a misconception that fitness and bodybuilding are the same while in reality, they are two separate terms with different meanings. Fitness is much more than having a god-like physique. It’s a way of life. There are a lot of things which make a body healthy, active and fit, and if we try to look around, we can find quite a few. For instance, you can stay fit with yoga, sports, cycling, boxing-the list goes on. You can achieve your goal without even going to the gym. It depends on you how you want to pursue it.
Yes, weight training is one of the ways to stay healthy as it trains your body but bodybuilding is a whole different genre. Bodybuilding is defined as the development of the body through exercise and diet for a competitive exhibition. In contrast to that, a healthy and fit body is something free from any internal predicaments like disease, fatigue, lethargy, digestion, etc.
So What Exactly are Steroids?
Anabolic Steroids are synthetic versions of the primary male hormone, testosterone. Testosterone is important for promoting and maintaining muscle growth and developing secondary male sex characteristics, such as a deepening voice and facial hair. While testosterone is secreted naturally in both men and women, taking a synthetic can have serious repercussions. Anabolic Steroids are powerful hormones, they directly affect your heart liver kidneys.
Side Effects Of Steroids?
The use of steroids suppresses the naturally occurring testosterone in the body and, in males, may lead to a decrease in testicle size, decreased sperm production, infertility, and baldness. As well, the excess steroid can be converted to estrogen in males and may lead to enlarged breasts. In females, the excess testosterone production may lead to a deeper voice, changes in the menstrual cycle, and increased hair production. Baldness may also be seen in women. Anabolic Steroids are powerful hormones, they directly affect your heart liver kidneys. There have been some cases of permanent liver damage, heart attacks and kidney failure which can lead to premature deaths.
Is It Possible To Develop Muscle Without Steroids?
Yes absolutely, with a well-balanced diet and weight training it is achievable. The results may not come overnight but if you are dedicated and focused towards your goal you will get there eventually. I have seen people been in the fitness world that never used steroids and are crisp as ever. Olympic athletes are a live example of it. I know it is time-consuming and tough but throughout the journey, you will learn new things1–meet new people and that is what really matters in life. The hard work and dedication that you will put on your goal will give you long-lasting results without compromising on your health.
