Bodybuilding Fitness Myths

I have been lifting for many years, over 30 to be exact.  Over the years I have learned a lot from my own personal experience. Many of the things we are told about working out, gaining muscle, and losing body fat just don't make a lot of sense.

I have always looked at bodybuilding more from a common-sense point of view instead of all this bro-science stuff we read today.

You can watch bodybuilding videos and read articles all day long and the more you do the more complicated and confusing things seem to be.

Gaining muscle and getting a ripped body doesn't have to be complicated.

When I was young I would see all these modern-day bodybuilders who had massive bodies that would show how much they ate and the things they did to get massive.

When I smartened up realized it was all smoke and mirrors and these guys took a lot of steroids in order to look like they did.

I have made a list of myths to share with you, it's what I have learned about gaining muscle, losing fat, and increasing strength.

You can't gain muscle without lifting heavy

This is not true.

I personally tried this after working out for several years, at one point in time I spent six months working out as heavy as I could.

I focused a lot on compound movements (deadlifts, rack pulls, and squats) and while I did gain a lot of strength and some muscle it was not as much as I had expected. Read more

What are legal steroids?

Legal steroids are the closest thing to anabolic steroids you will find.

The way they work is by mimicking the effect of anabolic steroids without the side effects.

Just like anabolic steroids, these powerful supplements have similar names which, include Anvarol (Anavar), Winsol (Winstrol),  and Clenbutrol (Clenbuterol). Read more

Female Friendly Steroids

Do Female Friendly Steroids Exist?

When we talk about steroids most of the time we think of male bodybuilders, while there are not as many women who take them, they are still popular especially for those women who want to gain abnormal amounts of muscle. In this article, I will discuss in detail what is considered female-friendly steroids and safe alternatives.

What are female-friendly steroids?

The term female-friendly steroids are something that is deceiving, this is because they don't exist.

The reason some steroids are called female-friendly is that they have fewer side effects than those not considered friendly.

First, let's take a look at what anabolic steroids do?

Anabolic steroids are derivatives of the male sex hormone testosterone, something women produce very little of.

As you can imagine putting high levels of testosterone into a woman's body would begin to cause transformations. Read more

Closest Supplements to Steroids

Are You Considering Steroids? Why Not Try a Legal Alternative

Looking for the closest supplements to steroids, in this article, we will tell you about D-Bal, Testo-Max, Decaduro, Winsol, and Anvarol which are the closest thing to steroids you will find.  Learn how these can help men and women lose body fat, increase strength and gain lean muscle without taking anabolic steroids.

If you don't know much about bodybuilding, you may not know that many bodybuilders use anabolic steroids in order to gain massive amounts of muscle.

Over the last decade, we have seen steroids use skyrocket and unfortunately, we see more deaths due to the abuse of these substances.

It is common for both men and women to use steroids to enhance their performance and gain muscle. Even fitness models have jumped on the steroid bandwagon and use them in order to sculpt their physique.

We don't condone steroid use and for this reason, we believe that there are ways that men and women can get into shape without putting chemicals into their bodies.


If you have considered taking steroids, you may want to think twice about your decision.

Some of you may already be aware of the side effects steroids can cause, long term use can cause severe health problems that can lead to heart problems, kidney failure, and liver damage.

What if I were to tell you that there are supplements that come close to offering similar benefits that steroids can.

Believe it or not, these do exist!

You are probably asking yourself, why people don't talk more about these supplements?

The main reason is that legal steroids take longer to work and most people want instant results.

In the days of old school bodybuilding, anyone who was serious about lifting knew that gaining muscle took time and lots of hours of training and eating right.

This is not to say that bodybuilders did not take steroids, because they did, many of them only took them 12 weeks before a major competition.

If you look at some of the old photos of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Frank Zane before a competition both had full muscles with a lot of definition, after competing they would lose some weight because they would stop taking steroids.
