you want to know how lifting works here is what happens bodybuilders are not as strong because they are building muscle you don’t require muscle for strength muscle and strength are two completely different things you have you ever seen people huge arms with no definition that’s strength the more definition you have its very likely your not very strong because to have strength your body burns energy like ape shit crazy so they need that weight to have the energy to use there strength power lifters don’t build muscle they train the muscle how there body how to use the muscle they already have its like picking a lock to a door once you pick the lock you have what was already there while bodybuilding is basically not opening the door and building your own stuff
Side effects are minimized by taking the lowest doses possible (that still yields positive results) and following doctor's orders. It is important to avoid self-regulation of the dosage, either by adding more or stopping the drug without a schedule. After prolonged use, steroids must be gradually reduced to permit the adrenal glands to resume natural cortisol production. Eliminating doses too quickly can result in glucocorticoid withdrawal symptoms, worsening of underlying inflammatory disease (rebound effect), or rarely, adrenal crisis (a life-threatening state caused by insufficient levels of adrenal steroids).
The difference between anabolic and catabolic processes can be summarized briefly: anabolic (‘constructive’) processes result in less fat and more muscle mass, while catabolic (‘depleting’) processes do the opposite. In other words, when your body is in an anabolic state, you use energy to build muscle, and in a catabolic state, you burn muscle tissue to release more energy in the short term. It will be clear to you that to grow muscles is better in an anabolic than in a catabolic state – but beware, there are also times that you really should end up in a catabolic state.
