It is very common for bodybuilders to use veterinary steroids for a precontest cycle. Since they are typically assimilated quickly, they do the best work in the shortest amount of time, and are generally out of the system relatively fast in comparison to other ‘roids. And, believe it or not, usually people see fewer side effects when using vet products than when using human ones. Why take anything else? Maybe not ‘why take anything else’, but why not include veterinary steroids, in one form or another, in every cycle? In my mind, veterinary drugs should really be everyone’s choice for extreme condition and definition. They combine well with androgens and other anabolics as well as any drug in the human realm of anabolic steroids. The only problem, these days anyway, is availability. You can find them in Mexico, but you risk fakes, counterfeits, lower quality, or lower dose per ml. You also, of course, face the possibility that you’ll be stopped.
For example, anabolic steroids such as Testosterone have a tendency to promote water retention through their ability to be aromatized into Estrogen via the aromatase enzyme. While such an effect might not be a concern for a strength athlete or a powerlifter (such an effect might even be beneficial or desired in such sports), this is not a desired effect for athletes involved in sports that involve speed and swiftness, such as sprinting. Instead, a sprinter, for example, would more likely opt for an anabolic steroid such as Stanozolol ( Winstrol ) or Oxandrolone ( Anavar ), which are two anabolic steroids unable to convert into Estrogen and therefore the issue of water retention, and therefore the issue of added weight that would slow the athlete down is avoided. Many athletes may also elect to ‘stack’ anabolic steroids in a given cycle (stacking refers to the practice of combining more than one anabolic steroid in a cycle). In the case of cycle stacks, an individual might be able to increase the synergy and synergistic effects between the anabolic steroids to create a highly anabolic environment or to create a stack that might assist the user in favoring certain particular athletic or physique goals. These are some of the major reasons as to why the development of different types of steroids has been done.
