Does Steroid Use Kill You?


Today we are going to answer common question or assumption by society. 

I get this question all the fucking time. I believe it is necessary to address this.

I have been on several cycles of SARMs or Designer Steroids for almost 4 years.  

I have not been juicing for 10+ years and I am not a professional bodybuilder. Nor do I ever plan to be.

However, I think I do have enough experience to properly speak on this topic.

Everyone has the idea steroids are what kills bodybuilders and athletes that use said compounds.

This could not be further truth. That is more bullshit government propaganda that the government puts in your head to keep you controlled.

The government does not want you to physically excel. They do not want your physical health to be amazing.

That is bad for the greedy corporations (who control the government) who profit off your poor health decisions.

Most steroids can be used in very healthy manners as long as they are taken in the proper dosages for the proper length of time.

It is only when bodybuilders begin to abuse these drugs, is when things start to get dangerous and your physical health could be jeoporidezed.

I will address these issues below. Let's set the record straight.

What Makes Me Bring This Up?

The deaths of Rich Piana and Dallas McCarver are big ones. At least, it is what resurfaced some of these idiotic ideas.

They died just about 2 weeks ago which is truly tragic. Especially for Dallas, he was only 26 years old and a beast on stage.

The full details on how they died are not completely out yet.

All the info we have been given are the following:
- Is when they died
- The condition they we found in when responders arrived on the scene  - How long they were in the hospital before being pronounced dead
- Preliminary causes of death

We have not received the full story on what went down with these guys or what other health issues they were going through while they were alive.

However, spectators are jumping the gun and already suggesting the steroids and PEDs are the sole cause of his death.

It makes no sense. These assertions are based on ZERO facts. 

Also for their families to deal with all these internet trolls, claiming their loved one died of steroid abuse, is just ridiculous. 

Anyway, that is my rant. We are moving on. 

How Do Steroids Work?

Now people love to buy into what the media and government tell them about steroids without doing any research themselves. 

They blame deaths and health issues on compounds they do not understand in the least. 

So, without getting too scientific, let us give a brief explanation of how steroids work.

Anabolic steroids are molecular compounds that connect to androgen receptors in the body. 

This allows the body to stimulate A LOT bone and muscular synthesis by better partitioning nutrients, accelerating other enzyme pathways in the body and getting the most from your organ functions. 

Basically steroids stimulate and maximize the body's use of cellular pathways in the body to promote bigger and stronger muscles. 

It is that simple. Yes, there are a ton of different steroids but every single  one is meant to help with maximizing the performance of the body.

This is one of the main reasons why athletes use steroids. They can reap the benefits at low dosages.

MMA fighter, boxers, football players, soccer players, basketball players, tennis players, hockey players, track runners, bikers, marathoners, etc.

Even golfers can see their performance benefit from steroid use.  

This is because the cellular function in your body is being pushed to maximum output and utilizing all the nutrients you put in it. 

How To Get The Most Out Your Cycle?

Do not be under the impression that you can use steroids, then just sit on your ass and get ripped. 


Steroids only maximize the effects of work you are already putting in. 

So if you are putting in no work then you are going to get nothing out of steroid use. 

If you are lifting every day, hitting cardio, and have clean diet; then steroids will amplify your results and likely help you achieve them quicker. 

So never think that the guys that do steroids are lazy. Quite the opposite actually. 

Most of them are some the hardest working people you will ever meet in your lives. 

You have to. They have the mental fortitude to hit weight every single day and stick to super strict diets year round. 

I have done it. That shit is tough!

If you are not convinced, then try yourself and hit me back on fucking difficult of a time you had doing it. 

Like anything in life, you need to put in maximum effort to obtain maximum results. 

Never get that twisted.

So next time you meet someone on steroids who has a great physique, congratulate his or her work ethic because that person busted his or her ass for that body.  

Never be so quick to judge. Especially, if you know nothing about what compounds they are taking. 

Where Some Fuck Up With Steroids!

Steroid abuse is when things can get dangerous.

Like all prescription or over the counter drugs, if you stay take too much for too long then you risk serious side effects. 

Depending on the drug or your health history, some of those side effects could be life threatening. 

Steroids are no different. They are just under a bigger microscope because high profile athletes and bodybuilders get caught using them. 

Because steroids push your body to it's limits for higher output, it can put great strain on your organs if used for long periods of time at high dosages. 

Steroids do not cause any life threatening issues with the body. 

However, they can amplify pre-existing health issues within the body. 

When your body is under strain, you are way more likely to trigger these health issues. 

For example, if you have high blood pressure. Taking high doses of anabolic compounds will likely make that problem worse. 

That is why is highly suggested that you go to the doctor before getting on cycle. 

Get blood work done and make sure everything is okay. Once you confirm perfect health, then you can consider going on cycle. 

However, if you do have issues then you need to back off or talk to a doctor about how can safely cycle. 

If you do not go the doctor, then you are rolling the dice with your health and taking an unnecessary risk. 

Guys Getting Too Fucking Big

This is another huge mistake that a lot guys and professional bodybuilders make. 

They put on too much damn muscle. To where they are 300 pounds of rock solid muscle.

This was around the size of Rich Piana. He was shredded too.

That is not good for you. It makes you body go through serious effort just to complete basic daily tasks. 

Not fun. 

It makes your heart more effort to pump blood all that muscle then is would to pump blood the same amount of weight in fat. 

Therefore having 300 pounds of muscle is equivalent or worse than being obese. 

Plus. you get all the other health issues of an obese person.

Sleep apnea, enlarged heart, weird lipid levels, high blood pressure, thicker blood, poor cardiovascular endurance, etc.

Many bodybuilders do die or have very serious health ailments from issues related to the stuff I mentioned above.

Im not saying that is what killed Rich or Dallas. But it would not be shocking if it did given the size of those guys.  

You just need to push a bit past your genetic threshold and find a look you are comfortable with and chill.

Why be 275 pounds in muscle. I would rather be 200 pounds and look like Superman then 300 pounds and look sick.  


So I help this clears up some things for those who did understand what steroids do and how they affect the body. 

Keep in mind though, we have only scratched the surface.

You can get balls deep into the science and go on for years researching this stuff. 

Trust me I know. I learn more about this stuff everyday. I encourage you to do the same.

Knowledge is our greatest against ignorance and government controlled media and propaganda. 

Take the bullet out of your head and wake up! There is more knowledge to had out there.

With the internet, all that real info is at your fingertips. However, there is a lot of bullshit too. Be careful what you read. 

To answer the question, can steroids kill you?

Technically, yes. They definitely can. But hear me out.

Like prescription and over the counter drugs, they can seriously harm you if abused and used improperly. 

Sometimes, this can be the case for some bodybuilders.

But most at professional bodybuilders, at the highest levels of competition, know what they are doing when it comes to steroid usage. 

What hurts a lot of those professional is that they either have pre existing health issues that steroid usage makes worse and/or they simply put on too much muscle mass for the body to sustain long term.

The health issues related what I mentioned above are what put many bodybuilders in harms way. 

This is also where I think many of them need to take a step back with their steroid dosage protocols. 

However, for regular dudes like you and me. You should never get to that point. 

Remember to get blood work done and see a doctor. Know everything that is going on with your body. Make sure you are healthy. 

Most of you guys can get the extra boost you need with mild compounds such as ostarine, ligandrol, testolone, 1-Andro, and 4-Andro

Follow that up with a proper post cycle therapy phase. Then take an extended amount of time off.

The time you spent on cycle, is usually the minimum amount of time you should spend off cycle. 

Most importantly, get blood work done. Know what is happening in your body. Seek counsel from a medical professional. 

The message here is to be safe guys. No need to jeopardize your health over a couple pounds of muscle man. 

That is all for now guys. Have a great day. Please subscribe below.
