So I Invited this guy who lives in my building who likes to claim he is in the know about so many things over for some beer the other night. I was
slightly annoyed with his arrogance on so many topics but decided to hear him out. Then he went off saying you can inject anabolic steriods, sit on
the couch eating potato chips and gain muscle mass.
**coughBullSh!tcough** I said. You will get fat. Noo noo dude, you don't know what you're talking about he said. I placed a bet of $25 and we shook
hands. I told him I don't want to see a blog about it and seeing I've been on ATS for so long, I asked for a peer reviewed paper.
So then he sends me this....
American Journal of Physiology
I'm reading it, but to be honest, I can't discern between normal testosterone and anabolic steroids in this paper. I basically need a medical
dictionary just to get through it.
My gut feeling about this guy is he's just a big mouth and this morning I get a text "got my 25 bucks?"
So before I get flamed for taking the bet without being knowledgeable on steroids, I had to go with my gut and common sense. Potato chips on the couch
without working out will gain mass? C'mon that's too hard to just accept from a complete stranger.
I can seen in this study there are gains, but I need to weed out the half truths in here. Anyone care to take a stab with me?
ETA: this bet will also help me decide if this guy is "friend worthy"
