How To Spot A Steroid User
It’s no breaking news when a ripped guy is accused of using steroids. The broscientists undermine the hard work and dedication of every guy who is bigger than them by accusing them of using steroids. You certainly don’t want to fall to their level.
On the other hand, there are numerous fake natties on the internet. They’ll tell you the secret to their gains are their workouts and diet. Don’t get fooled by these liars. There are many signs which spill the beans for drug use.
This Is How To Spot A Steroid User Without Fail
1. Bloated Gut
This is the biggest spoiler for gear users. Using steroids enlarges every single organ in your body. You can’t spot increase the size of your biceps or chest. If you’re using anabolic drugs, every single organ in your body will grow, including your stomach, ears, and hands.
Look at the bodybuilders competing on stage, and you’ll see what we’re talking about. Enlarged midsections have earned these athletes the name ‘pregnant bodybuilder’ and have exposed them to ridicule on the internet.
2. Insane Vascularity
Ever wondered how some people have road map like vascularity in their forearms? Don’t tell us you think it’s because of a hardcore forearm workout and a low body fat percentage. There is much more happening behind the scenes.
Cutting out water, taking supplements to increase blood flow and pumps can help you with your vascularity. But steroids like Equipoise (EQ) can help you get the vascularity and dryness with minimal effort and sacrifice.
3. Balding Head
Neither is it a coincidence, nor a fashion that most bodybuilders are bald. Steroids like testosterone can increase your natural test levels which can play a major role in hair loss. Using gear for longer durations can amplify hair fall.
Balding due to gear use can be irreversible. In fact, most of the side effects of steroids are nonreversible. If you’re willing to take the plunge and start using steroids, make sure you’re educated about their effects and side effects.
4. Short Temper and Mood Swings
Certain juices like Trenbolone and Dianabol can cause mood swings. Some of these drugs were originally developed for animals like horses, but certain humans thought of using them to enhance their performance.
Steroids can turn you into a rage monster. Once you get on the cycle, it’ll be better for you and the people around you that you spend most of your time alone. Such drugs can prove to be addictive, and it might be hard for you to stop using them.
5. Acne On The Back
You’re playing with your hormones when you inject steroids into your body. Don’t think it won’t have any effects on your body. The most common areas where acne develops are your back and face.
Unlike balding, this side effect of using steroids is curable. Staying off of the juices for a couple of months can cure the acne. It is recommended you take the advice of a professional before you start using anabolic steroids.
6. Syringe Marks On The Body
Arguably, the most common and safe way of using gear is to inject them into your body. There are many oral forms of steroids present on the market but they’re not safe to use. Oral drugs can have a negative effect on your kidneys.
Injecting syringes into the same spot can lead to the formation of spots. Since steroids are foreign objects, your body tried to fight them. This can lead to the formation of syringe wounds which can be painful in some cases.
