People hitting the gym have got a single goal — to be more fit and strong. Whether it is to gain muscles or to lose weight, people often want their physique to be at their optimal shape. Bodybuilding is one the best ways to achieve such goals, as it incorporates weight training, cardio exercise, nutritional diet, and discipline, etc. However, it is a fact that muscle building involves a lot of hard work, consistency and strong will power. Many people stop in the middle because they do not get expected results in a stipulated time frame. Many people take anabolic steroids for bodybuilding sessions.
Anabolic steroids are generally taken to promote the growth of skeletal muscles. They are synthetic substances similar to the male sex hormone, testosterone. Steroids are taken through intramuscular injections. When steroids are injected, they work very quickly inside the body and help build muscles. The most important question is how to inject steroids? Well, it’s not a rocket science, but one must follow procedures, as mentioned below:
First of all, the right size of a needle is selected — needle comes in different sizes such as 1 inches and ½ inches. After choosing the needle size, draw air into the syringe that’s equal to the amount of steroid you’ll be drawing into the syringe. After that, place the needle into the bottle containing steroids and push all air in. This process facilitates the drawing procedure. Draw steroids by simply pulling the plunger until the desired amount is obtained. Remove air bubbles by pushing the plunger forward. Now, disinfect the area where a needle is to be injected using alcohol. After disinfecting the area, plunge the needle until the steroids have entered the desired location. Do not remove the needle immediately after injection rather leave the needle inside for about 20 to 30 seconds to ensure all steroids have settled deep into the muscle. Once the needle is removed, place a never before used cotton over the injected area.
It is important to note that not all steroids are good for health and some are legally banned as well. It is, therefore, essential to consult a doctor or an experienced health trainer before taking steroids. Besides, only desired amount needs to be taken for bodybuilding.
