Do Steroids Enhance Supplementation?


#1

Do you guys find that supplements are more effective when using gear or drugs in general?

I know steroids improve nutrient partitioning as well as nutrient absorption so in theory you should get more out of intra-workout products no?

What is your personal experience?


#2

oh definitely. When I’m on steroids I drink a whey protein shake and I can actually fly! Like literal, superman-style flight.

ZMA gives me the power to see through walls

creatine gives me the power to turn rice into cheese

BCAAs help me predict the future

HMB lets me talk to animals

And, if I take a strong enough pre-workout and really concentrate, and I mean REALLY concentrate, I can shoot milk out of my nose EVEN WHEN I HAVEN’T BEEN DRINKING MILK

Holy shit! I thought I was the only one!

Don’t people use insulin pre-workout for the very exact reason it shuttles nutrients into their system quicker?

Sarcastic replies are great, keep them coming.


#5

Insulin isn’t a supplement, and shouldn’t even be considered as one in the same category as what you’re describing.

I’m not saying it is.

I’m asking if anyone has noticed that supplements used around a workout are more effective in general when using drugs… sheesh.

edit: Do drugs have an impact on the effectiveness on bodybuilding supplements?

You… you were lying??? I’m still the only one with the ability to have profound discussions about the schools of jurisprudential thought with my cats after taking pre workout stimulants?

My brown tabby fancies himself a legal scholar. He claims to have been a prominent member of the House of Lords in a previous life.

my puppy is a staunch socialist, and finds the existence of the House Of Lords to be an anachronism. Chances are your cat and my dog will never be friends.

It’s cool though, you and me are still good.

And how exactly is it a stupid question?

I’ve already pointed out people use insulin pre-workout for the very reason of getting more out of their intra-workout supps.

You and a few others just want to be clowns in this forum. Instead of wasting time here, go join a circus

Well what did you expect the answers to be? You really think that people are going to feel like fish oil or a multivitamin doing more when they’re on steroids? Do you have any concept of how steroids actually work?

And the insulin use isn’t to get more out of their “supps” you moron. It’s to get more out of their DIET. It just so happens that some people tend to use shakes with insulin instead of food. There’s plenty out there who use solid food with their insulin with great results. No supps required.

As for the clowns of the forum, yeah, I’ll admit there’s a few regular dudes here who get along pretty well and we fuck around a bit, but I guarantee every single one of us has imparted more wisdom than you ever will.

I’m not talking about fish oil or multis - i’m talking about workout supps taken around the workout. protein/carb drinks.

Yawn

Protein and carb drinks taken in and around your workout are part of your diet.

No - you and a few others are glorified trolls. You don’t like to fuck around, you want to destroy and any all meaningful discussion.

You’re better off posting on 4chan than here.

LOL

So you already know that they do, so what are you asking?

And I think you’ll find if you look through the threads where people like you aren’t asking retarded questions or giving retarded advice that the discussions actually go pretty well

Gee… I was asking for people’s personal experiences with workout supps on cycle until you derailed the the thread.

double LOL

So you started out asking if steroids enhanced supplementation, then when that was laughed at you made it specifically about how insulin helps with intra-workout drinks, which you already know it does.

Are you female? No one with a penis could ever be so unsure of what they wanted

It was always about intra-workout supps, I wrote it in the OP. Insulin is the only example I know of, was trying to here from users experiences, possibly with other drugs.

Anyways - I’ll let you continue your comedy/troll act. Continue to show everyone here how hilarious you are. I bet you’re a real blast to be around.

oh I am! People tell me it all the time. They’re like “oh, look out for this guy, he is SUCH a character.”

You should hear me sing the lumberjack song!

I enjoy yogis post your thread is retarded. If protein synthesis is enhanced from steroids what the hell do you think the answer is?
