Taking Roids, Can You Tell?

Can you tell if someone is taking steroids or hormones ONLY by the looks?
Is there any “revealing sign” for an experienced eye maybe?

Pronounced canines, hairy back, and red eyes.

Also known to make howling sounds on nights with a full moon.

Gyno.

NO

Rage…

extraordinary, uninhibited, reckless abandonment rage…rip off your head and poop down your neck rage.

Its terrible. You dont want to see it, believe me.

If your girlfriend’s clitoris is starting to look suspiciously like a little penis, then chances are pretty good she is juiced to the gills. If she is sprouting facial hair and beginning to sound like Barry White, I’d say that removes all doubt.

Some say you can tell by the way the pupils are constricted.

But that could be a sign of a lot of things besides just juice.

At times, around here it seems that the tell/tale sign is anyone that weighs over 165, and has a BF of less than 12%.

pull down their pants and observe their gonads over a long period of time.
Now plot a gonad circumference vs time graph. If the curve has a negative slope, then maybe :open_mouth:

Acne everywhere including the back in some cases.

In very prolonged use, depending on what exactly is used, an “eyebrow ridge” can form and the jaw line can change.

There can also be an HGH gut.

Is that an Isle of Man flag in your avatar?

The only way you could tell with me was my rear delts became very developed

You will begin to bear a striking resemblance to Sylvester Stallone.

Damn,

I’ve got the acne and the eye brow ridge, and I’m not even on roids

I have acne on the back of my shoulderblades and on the middle of my back, and I’ve never touched the stuff.

Come to think of it, I have acne just about everywhere BUT my face.

So that’s why Susy broke up with me.

One thing I’ve read is that if a roid user gains mass in the upper arms quickly, he may end up with veins that look like an “S” going down his arm instead of straight ones. I don’t know if there is any truth to it, not that it really matters.

Wasn’t there some lame men’s health article about “how to spot a roid user”?

60% of all males in the US are believed to have some form of gyno. That means it would be a mistake to walk around judging people on whether they have gyno or not. Most cases have NOTHING at all to do with exogenous hormone use.

You can easily tell who is on the juice - everybody that can outlift you.

At least that is what the guys that only hit the weights when they have time think.
