Something I’ve always been curious about is why many people say you can go beyond your gentic potential when using certain drugs? To me if you continue to grows even when using AAS you are still within your gentic potential.
What I mean is, why do we say using supplementation, say creitine, protein, etc…, only helps us reach our limits while AAS help us exceed these limit? It’s not as if using AAS alters your genetics it just enchances them.
Not to be absurd, but if a doc surgically installed a hydrolic lever in your arms, I’d say that’s beyond your gentic limit, but using AAS, I’m not so sure.
Anyway I’m not sure I’m getting my point accross that well, but any thought?
I think there is a difference between natural genetic potential and enhanced genetic potential.
Is your point that they are really the same thing, since AAS is just another supplement like protein, creatine, etc.?
If so, I see where you’re coming from but I think the bodybuilding community has drawn a line between natural and enhanced, and steroids are almost universally considered on the other side of the line as natural. Whether that line is arbitrary or not, I think steroids have been shown to make such a drastic difference that they are considered not natural.
I can eat more chicken to get more protein, and more beef to increase my body’s creatine levels, but there is nothing I can do to increase my testosterone production beyond a certain limit other than take drugs that increase my test levels.
