Steroid Gains ARE MAINTAINED Long After One QUITS DOPING


Today we will clarify the steroid issue: That one will lose the muscle and the strength he’s gained during steroid use once he goes off gear. This is completely STUPID and are only thrown around by STUPID and WEAK people!

As much as I don’t use artificial anabolics and as much as the Ironthumb system is designed to give you gains even without using gear; this site is all about TRUTH and the truth behind everything behind the iron and lifting weights. And part of these facts are the ones that got something to do with “steroids” which in my opinion and medical knowledge are no worse than estrogen pills (actually estrogen pills can be more harmful).

My health background has given me like a medical common sense; like a goggle wherein looking through it I will see through the bullshit and through all of the misconceptions about health to which I can see that this steroid issue is mostly overrated. But here once again we have invited a friend of ours, SCIENCE to answer this question without bias. Today we look through the study: Anabolic Steroids Withdrawal in Strength Trained Athletes: How does it Affect Skeletal Muscles? presented by Dr. Anders Eriksson.

(American Physiological Society (2008, October 3). Anabolic Steroids Provide A Competetive Edge In Powerlifting Years After Doping Has Ended)

Basically they found out that while physical traces of drugs no longer remained, changes in the shoulder and quadriceps still gave lifters an advantage, years later. Muscle characteristics were compared for groups of power lifters who were using steroids at the time of study,  lifters who had history of Steroid use and/or abuse but were clean at the time of study, and life-time drug free lifters.

doping maintain gains after years of being clean

They found out that years after anabolic steroid withdrawal, and WITH NO OR LOW CURRENT STRENGTH TRAINING, their muscle  fiber area and the number of nuclei per fiber in the quadriceps and shoulder-neck fiber areas was still comparable to that of athletes who were currently performing high intensity strength training. In some parts the number of nuclei (muscle cell nuclei=center-the more nuclei the meaner!) per fiber was even higher than than those found in the CURRENT STEROID USING GROUP!!

In the words of Dr. Anders Erikson himself:

It is possible that the high number  of nuclei  we found in muscle after steroid use might be beneficial for an athlete who continues or resumes strength training, because increased myonuclei opens up the possibility of increasing protein synthesis, which can lead to muscle mass. Based on the characteristics between doped and non-doped power-lifters, we conclude that a period of anabolic steroid usage is an advantage for a powerlifter in a competition even several years after they stop taking a doping drug.

So that settles the myth that weak men claim that steroid gains are temporary. Well it appears like it is very far from temporary! Some cellular gains have even become more apparent through time.

But kids off course like any other drug – Steroid abuse will lead to some ill consequences. Practice precaution and never start a cycle without the assistance of a medical professional who is knowledgeable of doping I am sure that there are many around. Remember dope might be just dope for the ordinary person but looking through the medical goggles I tell you that hormones ain’t a joke to be played around with; therefore if you decide to put yourself on gear, give yourself a favor and seek a medical professional and never go astray from your prescribed dose (I.E “ABUSE”) Take responsibility for your own action.

Guys, Share your experiences: What is your experience with doping? Do you know guys who are still strong years after stopping taking dope? Eat your eggs, people!

 Also, if you’re a beginner
and you’re wondering which steroids to take for your first cycle (and you’re completely decided), read one of my friend’s site this: http://aretheyonsteroids.com/best-steroids-for-beginners-first-steroid-cycle/

  1. im 30 and have been training for 13 years and i can tell you that i have never done a cycle im needle phobic. i deadlift 180kg bench press 120kg and leg press 300kg. i have just decide to do a test cyp and enanthate cycle to see what my gains are 6months after correct pct and persistant training. so i should be able to vouch for this surley you cant loose verything mass strength the lot muscle is muscle no matter how you gained it, it cant just evapourate.

    1. Happy to have your opinion and a take on your experience on this matter!!

      Its kinda cool if you ask me,
      you’d get to keep your gains even if you are no longer doping since the nucleus will always stay.

      1. hope so i’ll post my gains when my cycle is 5 weeks through then 10 weeks and after pct should see some good strength increase and gains currently weighing 240lb so lets see what happens

        1. That’s great!
          But I advice you to go see a professional physician – prefferably a personal friend and an endocrinologist who could monitor you while you are on your cycle.
          You also need to undergo regular blood work and liver fuction tests – that is a must.

          and utilize our regimens while you’re at it
          Best of luck

        2. “im 30 and have been training for 13 years and i can tell you that i have never done a cycle im needle phobic. i deadlift 180kg bench press 120kg”

          I was deadlifting 162.5KG after 3 years of training. Never touched a steroid.

          Do you even deadlift bro?

            Do you even deadlift bro?

            I’m 27 and am currently deadlift in 160kg @ 77kg BW. after 1 year of training. And will undoubtedly hit 185kg before October 1st

            So, do YOU even deadlift, Bro?

          2. Youre both pussies, im 17 and deadlift 250kg and have been training for 2 years, Natural. Shut up and stop training like twats.

  2. After 12 week cycle of 1.1ml test and 0.5 deca per week went from 84kg to 90 kg. Chest press Dumbells increased from 32kg per dumbell to 42kg per dumbell. After cycle did 3 weeks hcg and now on 5 weeks post cycle and now doing clomid / nolva. Still managing 38 kg Dumbells and now down to 85.5 kg. Still lifting well but look like I have lost weight which I have . Wondering then my weight will level out .

    1. Sorry for being away for so long sir.
      Your numbers are looking good!
      Just keep it up and up your proptein and animal fat intake. Eggyolks are great for strength gains so don’t remove them

  3. There is something that must be said when speaking on a medical level. 2 things
    1) when you gain fat cells or muscle cells it has been proven that they never can go away they can only shrink in size. So once fat It will always be easier to get fat again and vice versa once muscular it will always be possible to attain this again.
    2) every person has genetic limitations. Meaning that if your steroids pushed you beyond your genetic limitation then you will always fall back to your genetic limits. But at the same time you now have more muscle cells than previously gentically possible. Hence it is possible to SLIGHTLY permenantly increase your genetic limits through steroid use.

  4. I just spent 2 years cycling on and off of test…… because of narcotics abuse issues that I feel we’re intensified while on test. I’ve decided to go natural again. replacing my Test -E with protien, BCAAs, and Creatine. I don’t see how muscle gained regardless can just fall off…… no matter weather put on naturally, will I fall off a touch…. maybe. Do I feel like if I work a little harder I can keep it. Yes. But we shall see. Hopefully this article backed by science is correct.

  5. “1) when you gain fat cells or muscle cells it has been proven that they never can go away they can only shrink in size. So once fat It will always be easier to get fat again and vice versa once muscular it will always be possible to attain this again.”

    Hypertrophy means the increase in size of a muscle cell. Hyperplasia is “more muscle cells”. Therefore, I don’t think that you gain “more muscle cells” from lifting…

    1. You dont,(at least not yet proven to be possible) but Ex-steroid users have been found to have maintained their muscle cells’ nuclei count. Nuclie are different from the cell itself. You should know that a muscle cell has more than one nucleus
