It’s not bad that some athletes use steroids to achieve great results in a short time, but it’s annoying that some steroid users don’t want to admit it. There are those who hide it as if it was the biggest secret and lie to those who want to know the truth.
If you think that people you know might be using steroids but don’t want to admit to it, here are six ways that will help you point out dem steroid users.
1. The Big Gut
In recent years, we see more and more bodybuilders who have bloated stomachs, and while it may not always be caused by steroids, there is a high chance that folks with the big gut juice. Also, the big gut may be the result of using too much insulin growth factor-1 (IGF-1) and growth hormone (GH), but if a person uses IGF-1 and GH, they probably use steroids too.
2. Abnormal Development of Upper Body Muscles
Due to the reason that upper body muscles have more androgen receptors, steroid users often grow an abnormally big upper body. On the other hand, lower body muscles have fewer androgen receptors, and so grow at a slower rate.
Of course, all muscles get bigger, but they don’t grow at the same rate, so it may result in a large upper body. But don’t believe that if a person has small legs, he or she is definitely using steroids; DNA and a proper training routine also play an important role.
