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.
There is a myth being spread around both the net and the magazines today regarding which steroids are more likely to cause hair loss, but before we get to that, we must first gain an understanding of the subject of steroid “families”. Every AAS sold on the market today technically belongs to one of three classes (or families) of steroids. These are the testosterone-based, 19 nor-based, and DHT-based families of steroids. Each AAS is defined as belonging to one of these three classes of steroids, based on which of the three molecules it was originally derived from. For example, since the steroid Anavar is an alteration of the DHT molecule, it is classified as belonging o the DHT family of steroids. Since Dianabol is an alteration of the testosterone molecule, it is classified as belonging to the testosterone family of steroids. In reality, “all” steroids are derived from the testosterone molecule itself, but we utilize these 3 classes of AAS as basic sub-categories, in order to further categorize steroids into more specific groups.
I’ve had moobs since the age of 13 and I have been embarrassed shirtless and would love to go swimming which I love but will never do. I am now 46 and really thinking of going abroad for surgery. I had tried everything and when I was younger I was very good at various sports and was very active but since the moobs I decided to become overweight to cover up these ridiculous boobs. The latest surgery maybe the best solution but hope it works. If the surgeon can do miracles for me then this will be the best gift for me since last 30 years.
