The First Cycle Game

The thing is, I’ve never done drugs, Where to buy? Who to ask? I’d heard your local gym was a good place, which, were rat turds pressed into pill form. Suffice to say, the process involved an encrypted email account, a money order wired to Tel Aviv,) before a package arrived – pill and ampules and six vials wrapped in X-ray-proof paper.

courtesy of Dr John Ziegler, received testosterone injections as part of their training regime. better known by its trade name, Dianabol.

The biological function of anabolic (tissue building) steroids like Dianabol is to stimulate protein synthesis – that is, to heal muscles more quickly and effectively. New muscle is gained by tearing the long, protein molecules attach to the broken chains, creating new muscle. While on steroids, seeking out every stray protein molecule.

At first nobody was willing to credit Ziegler’s creation for the amazing gains glimpsed in the first test subjects. Nobody – not least the weightlifters themselves – could get their heads around the idea that a tiny pink pill could be responsible for their newfound strength: lifters added 30lb to their bench press and 50 to their hack squats virtually overnight. These lifters had been taking vitamins for years; they knew the value of pills was minimal. The only thing that convinced them was when Ziegler cut off the supply: the lifters surrendered all their gains and lost the feeling of euphoria experienced while on the programme.

As the Sixties progressed and the results became known, steroids made their way from the hardcore weightlifting gyms of North America into mainstream society, trickling down into baseball clubhouses, Olympic training facilities, and health clubs. Though Dianabol is still perhaps the most popular, today’s users can choose from over 40 steroids in the form of pills, patches, creams, and injectable compounds from A (Anavar) to W (Winstrol).

but that was quickly dispelled. Many steroids on their own are either singular of purpose or not terribly effective. This is where ‘stacking’ comes in: you can put on mass (75mg of testosterone), promote muscle hardness (50mg of Winstrol) and keep water retention to a minimum (50mg of Equipoise). This stack is injection-intensive: Testosterone and Equipoise twice weekly, Winstrol daily. Eleven injections a week.

But that’s only steroids – you need other drugs to stave off the potential side-effects, which include: hair loss, gynecomastia (build-up of breast tissue due to increased oestrogen, aka gyno; aka bitch tits), testicular atrophy, cranial and prostate swelling, erratic sex drive, liver impairment, haemorrhoids, impotence, cysts, acne, abscesses, renal failure. Be careful when getting bodybuilding and do your research study initially. Hair loss, gyno and testicular atrophy should be considered absolute rather than potential hazards: you simply cannot expect to alter your body’s chemical make-up without your body reacting.
