For average gymrats who never plan on stepping upon a bodybuilding state, Nandrolone may still be a perfect drug for you! You can enjoy its mass building effects in the off-season, and it’s effects upon muscle hardening when caloric restriction takes place. Remember that 99% of the people in a gym will never step on a competitive stage, so 99% of them don’t need to worry about drug testing. Likewise, if you plan on competing 2-3 years down the road once you’ve gained a great deal more mass and definition, then Nandrolone might be perfect for you. Just don’t play with the drug if you plan to be tested this year!
Anabolic steroids do have legitimate medical uses. They were first synthesized in the 1930s to treat underdeveloped testes and resulting testosterone deficiency. In the 1950s, they were used to treat anemia and muscle-wasting disorders and to bulk up patients whose muscles had atrophied from extended bed rest. In the 1960s, anabolic steroids were used to treat some forms of dwarfism. Today anabolic steroids are being studied for their ability to alleviate the extreme body wasting associated with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Their most common use, however, remains among athletes seeking a quick competitive edge.
