Perhaps some of you should do a tiny bit of research?

Anabolic steroids, also known as anabolic-androgenic steroids or AAS, are a class of steroid hormones related to the hormone testosterone. They increase protein synthesis within cells, which results in the buildup of cellular tissue (anabolism), especially in muscles. Anabolic steroids also have androgenic and virilizing properties, including the development and maintenance of masculine characteristics such as the growth of the vocal cords and body hair. The word anabolic comes from the Greek: anabole, "to build up", and the word androgenic comes from the Greek: andros, "man" + genein, "to produce".

The non-medical use of anabolic steroids is controversial because of their adverse effects and their use to gain potential advantage in competitive sports. The use of anabolic steroids is banned by all major sporting bodies, including the WTA, ITF, International Olympic Committee, FIFA, UEFA, the National Hockey League, Major League Baseball, the National Basketball Association, the European Athletic Association and the National Football League.

(Please note how baseball was not the only sport mentioned)

Anabolic steroids are controlled substances in many countries, including the United States (U.S.), Canada, the United Kingdom (UK), Australia, Argentina and Brazil, while in other countries, such as Mexico and Thailand, they are freely available. In countries where the drugs are controlled, there is often a black market in which smuggled or counterfeit drugs are sold to users.

The reason that AAS has got such a bad name attached to it now is because of media producers who know just as much about the topic as the people writing these stupid definitions. Mind you, most of them, we filled with spelling errors which would reflect the lack of your intellegence.

There is a list for all those who are scared to look at a steroid because they heard their friends mom's brother in-law saying that it shrinks your testicles. But, oh, since he was wise enough to make that accusation he must also know that there are things called "aromatization inhibitors". And what those do is keep the test as test and disallow it to aromatise and become estrogen or dht.

But im sure all of you already knew that.

What steroids do is replenish your muscles at a super human rate. they dont just magicaly make your muscles get huge. they take alot of work but even though you wont be feeling sore it takes alot of time. mostly used to either 1. get big fast or 2. to get REALY huge over a long period of time. you can tell a person uses steroids from a mile away. if his traps are sticking out of his back and he has a huge chest and sub-par abs. steroids alow you to easily do 2 FULL workouts in a day without feeling sore so you can do it everyday. And yes they have there draw backs, i.e. the most popular "shrunken balls" yes this is true it also fucks around with alot of your organs also, most people dont care because there only thinking about that gold medal, or that super bowl ring.
I decided i wanted to become a bouncer so i gained 20 pounds in a month by using steroids and appled at a local club.

A drug almost all Yankee players use to become good at baseball. Once their bodies start to break down from these drugs the Yankees try to void their contracts. But they like to keep other players who admit they were on steroids because they're still producing.
Person #1: Jason Giambi took steroids and the Yankees want to void his contract.
Person #2: So did Gary Sheffield.
Person #1: But he's still good so we'll let it slide.
