When they finally unlock the key to the myostatin gene and figure out how to effectively block it - it will render AAS obsolete.
Possibly. Somehow I don’t see, bodybuilders at least, giving up anabolics completely. In fact just suppressing myostatin to build muscle starts to sound a little depressing in a way.
One of the best parts about a cycle is how you feel emotionally – at least higher T levels work to suppress myostatin with the added bonus of the “feel”. Unfortunately suppressing myostatin doesn’t elevate T levels as far as I know – correct me if I’m wrong.
Basically at some point I envision hordes of lazy wannabe bodybuilders who aren’t all that motivated to train because they have low to average T levels – and since they could “look good” with minimal effort, they might not be all that worried about T levels anyway.
Also the media has such a field day bashing AAS’s every chance they get that they obviously has some sort of agenda. What they seem to be saying is testosterone is just BAD, period. Add to the fact that T levels have been steadily dropping in males across the board already…
Testosterone Tumbling in American Males
I know the research on myostatin is pretty exciting after reading about it on here for years, but you can’t help but worry that testosterone would be even MORE marginalized and demonized in the mainstream than it already is.
