Every day I receive a variety of questions about legal steroids. I have done lots of research about them myself and there is so much misinformation about them that it’s not even funny. Some of the information holds some truth but much of it is a lot of misinformation. Some of it comes from what I like to call “bro scientists” so below I will try to answer the most common questions I get asked in a day about legal steroids.
What are legal steroids?
Legal steroids are a combination of concentrated supplements that cause the human body to mimic hormone production. In order for muscles to grow, the body needs certain hormones “testosterone”. A legal steroid helps elevate hormone levels by making sure your body is getting enough of what it needs to increase muscle mass.
Do legal steroids contain chemicals?
No, legal steroids are completely natural, the only ingredient that could be considered a steroid “prohormone“ is something called DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone), but it is natural and approved by the FDA.
What is the difference between an anabolic steroid and a legal steroid?
A legal steroid mimics natural hormone production in the body. A synthetic “anabolic steroid” is completed carbons that when injected do not need to be processed by the body. A legal steroid is actually missing a carbon or two to complete the process, when you exercise or train “lift weights” a legal steroid helps complete the missing carbon, stimulating your body to increase hormone levels, providing the perfect environment for muscle growth.
Most of the ingredients in legal steroids seem so basic, how can they help increase muscle?
This is true, if you take some of the ingredients in legal steroids and do some research on them, some have no scientific proof of being effective, but combining the different ingredients together causes a positive reaction which is why they do work, for example, Tribulus Terrestris and D-Aspartic acid may not have an effect if taken individually but a combination of the two creates an environment that has been proven to increase testosterone levels.
What kind of gains can I expect from taking a legal steroid
Most legal steroid websites claim you can gain up to 30 lbs of muscle mass in less than 30 days. Realistically, that is a little far-fetched. It takes eating massive amounts of food “good carbs and protein” to be able to pack on only a few pounds of muscle in a month. A realistic expectation without any kind of supplements and just eating properly along with intense training you can expect to gain about a pound of muscle a week.
I have personally taken legal steroids and have managed to pack on anywhere between 2 and 2.5 lbs of muscle per week (10 lbs in a month) while this might not seem like much it is still twice the muscle you would gain without a legal steroid, obviously age, genetics, and training will also be a determining factor of how much muscle you gain.
For how long can I take a legal steroid?
A normal cycle should be 2 months on and 1 month off. The reason for this is because the body can easily adapt to any kind of routine or substance. This is similar to training, if you don’t constantly change your training regimen, your muscles will easily get used to the same thing. The same goes for the legal steroid cycle. You don’t necessarily have to cycle for 2 months straight, you can always cycle 1 month on and 1 month off.
What other benefits besides increasing muscle mass do legal steroids offer?
Legal steroids offer other benefits besides muscle gain, what you will notice when taking them is you will be able to hold a pump longer, you will also notice more energy and strength giving you more endurance throughout the workout. Legal steroids also help increase red blood cell count and improve nitrogen retention in the muscles.
Can anyone take a legal steroid?
Anyone over the age of 18 can take a legal steroid, it all depends on what you are trying to achieve. If you are looking to increase muscle mass, a bulking stack is ideal. For men looking to improve muscle definition, they would take a cutting stack. The ultimate stack contains all 6 products which are ideal for men over 40 not only to help increase muscle but also improve energy and stamina.
Can women take legal steroids?
Yes, in fact, there are 3 products that can help women burn fat and uncover lean muscles, they can also help improve endurance and stamina for longer, more intense training sessions.
Is there any proof that legal steroids actually work?
There is plenty of information on different forums and picture testimonials from men and women who have used legal steroids and have had very good results.
Some say these products are a ripoff, is there any truth to that?
Many say the same thing about other supplements: the bottom line is if you do your part and train consistently a legal steroid will help you pack on lean muscle, it will even help break strength plateaus, no one can expect to take a pill and see results the same goes for anabolic steroids.
