Bodybuilding steroids are those steroids that provide the user with the greatest and most significant changes first and foremost in the physique, aesthetics, and strength performance (in that exact order of importance – greatest to least). It is also no surprise that the overwhelming majority of users of bodybuilding steroids are not professional athletes, but the average every day gym goer who places perhaps the least amount of importance on athletic performance, and the most importance on physique changes and aesthetics.
I will introduce some most common used and lease side effect bodybuilding steroids for you to reference in the following.
Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone and an anabolic steroid. In men, testosterone plays a key role in the development of male reproductive tissues such as the testis and prostate, as well as promoting secondary sexual characteristics such as increased muscle and bone mass, and the growth of body hair. In addition, testosterone is involved in health and well-being, and the prevention of osteoporosis. Insufficient levels of testosterone in men may lead to abnormalities including frailty and bone loss.
Trenbolone is a derivative of Nandrolone, and alongside Nandrolone, is in the family of anabolic steroids known as 19-nor compounds. This category of 19-nor steroids is named as such due to the fact that these compounds contain a specific alteration at the 19th carbon on the anabolic steroid’s molecular structure. This alteration, which is the removal of the 19th carbon, is not seen in any other anabolic steroid classes. It also contains other alterations in this area that grant it enhanced androgenic strength (its ability to bind at a much greater strength to the androgen receptor), as well as a high degree of resistance to metabolic breakdown within the body.
Nandrolone is one of the most popular anabolic steroids to ever be created and has been a staple among performance enhancing athletes of all types since its inception. It is also one of the few anabolic steroids that has remained prominent in medical circles and is highly valued in many therapeutic fields.
Nandrolone was first developed in 1960 and made available worldwide in 1962 by Organon in the form of Nandrolone Phenylpropionate under the trade name Durabolin. However, it would be the trade name Deca Durabolin that would gain a hold on the Nandrolone drug. Since that time numerous versions of Nandrolone have hit the shelves, but Deca Durabolin has remained the most well known; in fact, it’s not uncommon for all Nandrolone versions to be referred to as Deca even if they aren’t.
