Women and steroids
Introduction and Basics of Nutrition
Physical conditioning is about building strength, stamina and aesthetics, and it also impacts overall health and self-esteem. The information below represents a comprehensive plan for the serious female fitness enthusiast. Topics ranging from the fundamentals of nutrition and training, to the complexities of appropriate supplementation and steroid administration are covered. This is the highest quality data available from a variety of nutritional experts, bodybuilding and fitness competition winners, and experienced licensed personal trainers.
Safety is always important; therefore, it is strongly recommended that you consult a physician before starting any of the dietary supplementation or exercise regimens.
In fitness, there are three primary elements.
- Diet is at the base because of its foundational importance to the whole of fitness. A diet promotes health and the body.
- In the centre we have weight training, an activity that provides the necessary stimulus for muscular change. Weight training has more impact than cardiovascular (aerobic) work because when properly employed it becomes a part of the body via increased muscle density and mass. Since muscle requires more fuel (that are calories) to operate, lifting weights can transform the body into a calorie burning machine, enhancing its ability to process foods, mobilize stored fat, and function better.
- On the top of the pyramid is cardio training, which is great for improving heart health and endurance. It is also considered more of a polish when it comes to aesthetics as it only burns calories (and fat, when internal conditions are right) during the activity and for a very short time after the activity.
Women tend to focus more on the top of the pyramid. They spend numerous hours a week performing cardio activities. What vitamins and supplements are to diet, cardio is to fitness – complimentary. The components of the pyramid exhibit a reciprocal relationship. When the diet is well managed, less weight lifting and cardio is required. Furthermore, better balance within the diet and weight training reduces the need for cardio work. However, the opposite is just as true. A sloppy diet and / or lacklustre weight training necessitates more cardio output.
