it doesn't make any sense. with steroids recovery is faster means you can go to gym more times per week, with steroids you have more strength so you will work harder and will stay more hours in gym, you also need to eat a lot more on steroids. basically all of these things i mentioned are actually a more hard work. people who use steroids and look like gods are the ones that work harder than anybody.
I understand you thought that you either go natural and spend 1 hour 3 days a week in gym or go with roids spending the same hours but getting noel deyzel body.
basically this is the usual path of steroids users (if they are not idiots) they work for many years and then want to get even better body and they are ready for 2x work. steroids only work if you do 2x whatever you did without steroids. no need for steroids if you leave gym in a hour or you don't sweat like it's raining. but if you do and mentally prepared for even bigger work, then you do it.
also age, with age your body produce less testosterone, so it's harder build muscles and sometimes even maintain what you have.
p.s a lot of people after 40, well some EU/US even after 30 have their test too low to function properly and be happy and healthy people. Too little people do blood tests, how you think there are 50+ yo people looking fresh and young, oh boy, some of you need to know so much about the world.
about shitting on roid users, steroid users =/= 300kg monsters. random 75kg guy could be a steroid user, half of your gym bros are steroids users
some people just think they got enough muscles after 2-3-4 whatever bulks they did and just decided to polish their body with a cutting cycle
steroids he says, lmao it's like you are 12, you inject steroids and then you are chris bumstead
i don't take steroids and never did, but i will when i get old, because in every country on the planet when you go to doctor and ask him to check your test levels he will say nice buddy, you smart, heres your test, you will be happier and live a more healthy life.
