Bodybuilding means that you try to develop an symmetrical, aesthetical pleasing physique with all muscle groups in proportion to each other.

In an ideal world you would be blessed with the right basics and genetic predisposition to easy gain muscle in the right proportion.

But as we’ve seen in our previous blogpost, most people have weak points, an uneven or unbalanced body, short muscle bellies and some are unlucky and have hard time to gain muscle.

Some muscles grow better that others, by example that the trapezius is a muscle that grows relatively fast for most people. It’s a tough muscle, full of androgenic receptors and with very favorable insertions for heavy and frequent training. Beside that anabolic steroids will make the traps explode right away.

On the drawing above you see a short muscle belly from the biceps and triceps compared with long ones.

A short muscle belly means that the muscle attaches high on the tendon, meaning the tendons are somewhat long and the muscle is somewhat short. Take an easy example : your bicep. Say your muscle bellies are attached high on the tendon, which means far from the elbow. That tends to create a gap between your bicep muscle and your forearm as you can see in the graphic.

Anabolic steroids were first developed in groups with small deviations, if scientist found the best analogue, they researched it and when their company believed it could become profitable they would market it. All anabolic steroids were just pharmaceutical drugs. There were roids for human and veterinary steroids. Also veterinary compounds for increasing muscle mass (meat) cattle.

They were used for a long time and some of them are still in use. So what’s wrong with? The answer could be short, nothing. Fact is that the global operating pharmaceutical industry is very powerful and earns very little on these compounds often with expired patents.

Prescription drug, biotechnology and medical device companies spent more than $700 million lobbying Congress and the Obama administration. They have spent millions in campaign contributions. Donations went to both Republicans and Democrats.

Every era has people that believe a certain time (mostly in their youth) was better that the present years. In case of bodybuilding, many people share the opinion that bodybuilding is getting worse and it will never be as in the “Golden Era of Bodybuilding”

Not too long ago many bodybuilders relied on certain veterinary steroids only, because substances such as Equipoise (boldone undecylenate) , Trenbolone acetate and injectable Winstrol (stanozolol) were only available as veterinary compounds. The only downside of using these veterinary means was the low dosage. Equipoise at 50 mg/ml, Trenbolone Acetate at 30 mg/ml etc. The same was also true for the Australian vet steroids.

When Harrison Pope published his conclusion on body image and the action dolls becoming much more muscular, many people were shocked. They believed young kids would strive to look like their hero’s, just like little girls took accepted the body-proportions of “Barbie” as normal.

Whenever an actor gets jacked for a movie, many people immediately wonder: is he on steroids? Cavill in Man of Steel, Hemsworth in Thor, Jackman in X-Men, Pitt in Troy, Bale in Batman, Butler in 300.

In recent years, we've been bombarded with studies about the hormone oxytocin researchers have demonstrated it increases trust and helps aid in social bonding. It has even garnered a reputation as the "love hormone." But what good is it for? Despite all these findings, the hormone's medical use remains limited to obstetrics, it is used to induce labor and aid in breastfeeding.

A number of newer oxytocin studies have even reached the stage of clinical trials which test the effectiveness and safety of a substance before it can become an approved drug with promising findings.

A Strong Neck Contributes to Overall Power and a Proportional Physique. Every physique that screams raw functional power has one thing in common: a big strong neck.

Baggy shirts can hide arm development on a par with Justin Bieber’s; sweats might camouflage “forgotten” leg days. But a pencil neck, forget it! No running, no hiding, it’s exposed.

Today, the vast majority of athletes does not realize the importance of training the muscles of the neck, and it is not the trapezius muscle, which only partially affects our appearance. We are talking about the real muscles of the neck. Many believe that the basic movements such as squats, dead lift, etc. contribute enough to the development of the neck muscles.

I was talking with a friend about an article I posted about body detransformation (link at the bottom of this blog post). We looked at the picture of Mustafa Mohammed and then he asked me; “What happened to this guy?” To be honest I didn’t know either. But being a curious guy I tried to find out the quick way via the search engine Google.

We all know what happens when you administer exogenous testosterone into your body. Some people are insatiably from there early puberty, these are mostly the people with a (very) high endogenous testosterone level. When these people are famous they are likely to hit front-page articles. Most of us remember one of those celebrities. And one of those guys is Arnold Schwarzenegger.

In 2011 it was all over the news that Mildred Patricia Baena, Arnold Schwarzenegger's mistress, and mother of his child, was his former house keeper. In the same year Gigi Goyette disclosed she was also a mistress from Arnold, starting when she was 16.
