Legal Steroid FAQ's
Every day I receive many different questions about legal steroids and their effectiveness. Besides having used them “I still do”. I have done a lot of research on legal steroids myself and have learned a lot.
I have put together this FAQ to answer some of the more common questions about these supplements.
A lot of information about these supplements holds some truth but there is also a log of misinformation about them.
A lot of the information comes from people I like to call “bro scientists”. Below I will try to answer the most common questions I get asked in a day about legal steroids.
What are legal steroids?
Legal steroids are powerful supplements that contain a combination of ingredients that mimic hormone production. In order for muscles to grow the body needs hormones like HGH, testosterone, and IGF-1.
Legal steroids help increase hormone levels making sure your body is getting enough of what it needs to gain strength and muscle.
Do legal steroids contain chemicals?
Some of them do.
Just like anabolic steroids, legal steroids come in different potencies, some are mild and contain no chemicals just natural ingredients, however, others are stronger and contain prohormones like (DHEA).
Even so, legal steroids are safe and do not cause any side effects.
What is the difference between an anabolic steroid and a legal steroid?
A legal steroid mimics natural hormone production in the body, anabolic steroids are chemical derivatives of the male sex hormone testosterone. Anabolic steroids contain a complete set of carbons that when injected they substitute the bodies natural testosterone production.
Legal steroids, on the other hand, are missing a set of carbons needed to increase testosterone when work out you stimulate androgen receptors. These tell your body to produce more testosterone.
Taking a legal steroid completes the missing carbons and allows your body to naturally increase testosterone and help you gain muscle.
Some say the ingredients in legal steroids don't work, is this true?
Just like any product, there are good and bad.
I have seen a lot of legal steroids that contain nothing more than whey protein and creatine, others don't even list their ingredients.
The ones I have used list the ingredients and many of them are backed by both clinical trials and science.
For example, Tribulus Terrestris and D-Aspartic acid have both been shown to increase testosterone.
If you combine the two they do boost testosterone, that is why so many testosterone boosters and legal steroids contain Tribulus Terrestris.
Some legal steroid brands like contain the prohormone DHEA which we know for a fact increases testosterone. That is why supplements that contain DHEA are banned in most countries with the exception of the U.S.
What kind of gains can I expect from taking a legal steroid
Most legal steroid companies claim you can gain up to 30 lbs of muscle mass in a month, that is a little far-fetched, it takes eating massive amounts of food, good carbs, and protein in order to gain just a few pounds of muscle.
Someone who trains without taking any kind of supplement but trains hard can expect to gain about a pound of muscle per week.
I have personally taken legal steroids and have managed to pack on anywhere between 2 and 2.5 lbs of muscle per week (8-10 lbs in a month).
This would not be possible without taking a legal steroid, especially those that contain prohormones.
How long does a legal steroid cycle last?
You can cycle a legal steroid for as little or as long as you like.
A one-month cycle is enough for you to see results however, for the best gains, we recommend at least a 2-month cycle.
That is one of the reasons many steroid companies offer a buy two get one free offer, this allows you to get the most benefit out of their products.
What benefits do legal steroids offer?
Legal steroids offer many benefits besides just gaining muscle.
What you will notice when taking them is you will be able to hold a pump longer, you will notice more energy and strength.
Legal steroids will give you more endurance and prevent muscle fatigue, much in the way anabolic steroids do, the difference is there are no side effects.
Other benefits of legal steroids include:
- Increase nitrogen retention in the muscles
- Boost oxygen and red blood cell count
- Improve protein synthesis for faster muscle gains
- Speed up muscle recovery time
- Burn visceral fat and maintain lean muscle
- No side effects
Can anyone take legal steroids?
Yes, anyone over the age of 18 can use legal steroids.
If you are looking for a safe way to gain muscle a bulking stack is ideal, for men looking to improve muscle definition they would use a cutting stack, the ultimate stack contains all 6 products which is ideal for men over 40, not only to help increase muscle but also improve energy.
Can women use legal steroids?
Yes, there are 4 legal steroids that women can use that are suitable for women.
Is there any proof that legal steroids work?
Yes, there is, many companies have dozens of picture testimonials from men and women who have used their products and their results are impressive.
Below are a couple of screenshots I have taken from the Crazy Bulk website, you can view more here.
Some say these products are a ripoff, is there any truth to this?
Many say the same thing about many supplements, legal steroids do work. What I find is that a lot of people are not willing to put forth any effort.
In order for you to get the most benefit out of a legal steroid, you have to work out. I know guys who take anabolic steroids and don't see results and those are the guys that don't train hard enough to get results.
What is considered the best legal steroid?
As far as popularity, by far the Crazy Bulk brand is the most popular.
The Reason Crazy bulk is one of the top-selling legal steroids is that it ships worldwide and there are dozens of testimonials from men and women who have used their products with success.
