Bodybuilding and Steroids - Roid Gut the end of aesthetic physics

Okay, here's a topic that really boils my blood. Bodybuilding is meant to be the creation of the perfect physique ... right? This means that the chest, shoulders, legs, arms and back are supposed to be developed to their full potential while keeping the waist muscular but small. Some bodybuilders may have a genetically gifted part which tends to be superior to another part. The normal purpose is to focus on training the developing body part while reducing the training to the more reactive body part.

This is done to achieve proportional muscle size. To achieve the perfect physique, the waist is supposed to be small compared to the upper parts of the body and the legs. The smaller the size, the more spectacular the surrounding muscles appear. The back will look like a flared cobra head when attached to a small size.

I remember the physics of the past, Arnold, Bob Birdsong, Franco Columbo, Bob Paris and Frank Zane achieved this dynamic look. Darin Lannaghan, Bill Davey and Stan McQuay produced this look in modern bodybuilding although they can never be seen at the Arnold Classic Competition.

So what has changed?

In the mid-1980s, human growth hormone (HGH) and insulin became popular drugs with professional bodybuilders. The bottom line, with these top competitors, is the "Roid Gut". Nowadays, we have bodybuilders wearing a size of 40 to 46 inches. I suppose, of course, that no competitor would share the gigantic size of their waistlines. If they did, I would bet they would reduce the number by an inch or two, unfortunately the Roid Gut looks disgusting contrary to the sport's original intentions.

When Jay Cutler in his early years has reached national importance, his youthful physique was still short. Today Jay's size is absolutely disgusting. can weigh over 270 pounds, but also sports a waist line for a sumo wrestler. Most of the best bodybuilders, Ronnie Coleman, Dorian Yates and Craig Titus, all present this similar phenomenon. tolerate and encourage by accepting this look as the physical "champion".

I am writing this article to discourage the use of these drugs. They suck the blood of sport, destroying the potential aesthetic of the physical and bringing bodybuilding back to the era of the freak show of the past. IT SHOULD NOT BE!

HGH, "Huge intestinal hormones?"

Okay so what does HGH do to the body? In a normal person, HGH is produced by the body and causes the body's normal growth process. The drug HGH was originally developed for children who were stunted and found to have low production of this hormone. Doctors would administer HGH in small amounts to stimulate a normal growth pattern.
In some people, the production of HGH is hyperactive (from birth), it can also create a person of gigantic proportions. André le Géant had this condition. Robert Wadlow was another and he became 7 & # 39; 11 ". He had many health problems and died very young.

If HGH is given to an adult, muscle growth will restart. HGH is very different from steroids. HGH causes the production of new cells. Steroids only cause the enlargement of existing cells. New cell growth appears to target only the soft tissue and rarely the skeletal system. Unfortunately, not only are the muscle cells multiplying, but also the internal muscles like the intestines and the heart. In addition, organs like the liver, kidneys and pancreas also develop. When the growth of these muscles and internal organs occurs in a fixed chest cavity, there is only one direction for this extra mass to disappear and which is out of the abdominal area. Are you starting to get the picture?

The additive effect of insulin

Now what is the effect of insulin on the body? Insulin is a super steroid that carries nutrients and sugar to the muscle. When combined with tough workouts, recovery is very quick. Correctly taken, it stimulates cell growth better than any other steroid. However, if you make a mistake taking insulin at the wrong time or in the wrong dosage, you can throw yourself into insulin shock and die. Long-term use can also make you diabetic, a life-shortening condition. When insulin is combined with HGH, the muscles are ready to make significant gains.

The downside of insulin is that it is also active in creating fat storage in the body in the event of starvation. These fatty deposits are stored inside the body and not the outside muscles. It is wonderful for the bodybuilder's appearance but not for this health. These fat deposits called visceral fat are found around the internal organs of the liver, pancreas, heart, and kidneys. Combine this extra weight with the growth of muscles and internal organs and you have enough extra mass to create a really prominent Roid Gut.

History of the "sidebar"

Let me tell you a story that comes to my mind at the very beginning of the 80s. Tim Belknap, then great in the world of bodybuilding, announced that he was diabetic. I have no reason to doubt that he was, but I am now convinced that Tim has found the secret to using insulin to maximize his bodybuilding potential. . At the time, Tim was by far the most vascular bodybuilder on the scene. And also note that it had a semi-protruding waist. At the time, I felt sorry for Tim handicapped by diabetes, but I admired that he had accomplished a world class physique in this condition. Now, looking back, I'm sure Tim was able to apply his insulin to its bodybuilding benefits.

You are the judge

I am convinced that these "super heavy" competitors weighing over 270 pounds could really weigh around 240 if you stripped the mass of their guts. But then again, they could only weigh 220 if they lost the extra bodybuilding because of these two drugs. Let us return to the aesthetic constructions of the past few years. I hope that even if the judges do not award the winning trophy to the small competitor, you will agree that creating a Roid Gut is neither attractive nor healthy!
