Re: Bodybuilder scarred from steroids

Why do I get the impression he stopped training between pictures #1 and #2?

Re: Bodybuilder scarred from steroids

Good lord... how do you go from jacked to skinny fat like that? I am gonna have to call BS on this one. I have never heard of steroids doing that to anyone. There has to be some other underlying cause that caused that or contributed to that.

Re: Bodybuilder scarred from steroids

I dont' know about that.. I knew kid in HS (about 12 years ago) who was 'juicing' for football and he had the absolute WORST acne I have ever seen then or since. His face was a moon crater and whenever he wore a tank top, his back and chest looked like someone had blasted him with a shotgun. It wasn't AS bad as these pics, but I have no trouble beliving that if the situation happened to align itself just right, this could happen.

Steriods bad. Danger Will Robinson, DANGER!!!

Re: Bodybuilder scarred from steroids

His chest looks sort of pointy in picture #1. Is that gynecomastia or am I just imagining it?

Re: Bodybuilder scarred from steroids

I hate to laugh at something like that but....

LOL.

Sucks, shouldn't have taken the documented unsafe route to fitness.

The worst part is that he got all skinny after getting off the juice, AND he's scarred.

On another topic, does steroid use have anything to do with uneven abs? I've noticed that alot in jacked up meat heads, while my abs are pretty symmetrical

Re: Bodybuilder scarred from steroids

Uneven or even abs are, I believe, simply a how-you're-built kind of thing. It's just that the "jacked up meatheads" have very visible abs.

Some of that puffiness may be water. Steroids cause water retention. Different steroids do it to different degrees, and the higher the dose, the more water retention. Users may be bulky but have poor definition because of the water. You can't see definition until they come off the cycle.

That pointy look is ***** ****. The nipples pop out first. It's disgusting, but there's anti-estrogen drugs that users can take during a cycle that completely shuts that down.
