No. If a person takes steroids the amount of mass/muscle production in the body increase but to shape the mass/muscle keep it growing in the proper place and required place It's very important to workout which hapless to push muscle as required

From the limited research I've done on this I concluded that you'll still keep some of the muscle gained but not necessarily the same mass. The idea is the steroids increase the number of muscle fibres. It is one of the reasons why some are against athletes that have tested positive being allowed to compete even after serving their bans. It could be argued ...

I don't have a link because the study was about 25 years ago but Harvard Med did a test study on three groups for 4 months: A. Steroids + 4 days working out per week (same regimen) B. Steroids + No workout C. Placebo + 4 days working out per week (same regimen) After: A. 6% gain in muscle mass B. 4% gain in muscle mass C. 2% gain in muscle mass I am ...

There have been documented tests that show steroid use without weight training will still increase your muscle mass just as someone who workouts and doesn't use steroids. However, if you're thinking you can get huge and jacked by just taking steroids alone you're sadly mistaken. The P values shown are for the comparison between the change indicated ...

But I heard people saying that you don't even have to work out to get the muscles if you're on roids. Is there any truth in that? Steroids don't change the basic paradigm of muscle training. Juicing yourself to increase your hormones (effectively) will allow you to carry more muscle than your body would allow otherwise. You will recover faster as ...

Be aware you do not need to fully recover from one training to benefit from additional training, especially if it is different in nature. Dual factor training takes this into for advanced lifters (example http://startingstrength.wikia.com/wiki/Programming#What_is_dual_factor_periodization.3F_I_don.27t_understand_this_stuff. ) You may not need to worry about ...

First of all we should know what you workout looks like. The muscle recovery time depends on your genetics, your experience and your training program. Of course, a beginner will take some more time to recover from a workout. Also, If you are able to recover from a workout in 12 hours, for sure you haven't trained with the correct intensity. This doesn't mean ...

There's no easy answer. It depends on a few variables: The stress you've exposed your muscles to. How close you are to your genetic potential. How good your recovery is. You (probably, based on your fitness as explained) could do 20 pushups a day, every day, and have no problems. However if you tried to push your 1RM (single maximum effort) bench press, ...
