Anavar, Clenbuteral– These are the steroids of Bikini. I am sure some girls venture into more serious drugs but as far as I have been told, these are the main “steroids” bikini girls take. But why are girls in bikini taking steroids when they require the least amount of muscle out of all categories? Because bikini still requires some muscle and in competitor’s haste to get to the stage and be competitive against others, steroids offer a decided advantage. I also believe that because the age of bikini competitors is usually younger, there is less opportunity to gain mature muscle mass the natural way.
I mentioned earlier in my “secrets of a bikini competitor” post about the tricks many competitors use to get a smaller waist and lose water weight and cellulite and this is really just the next iteration of that. These are the small differences that set some competitors apart from the others and that make it difficult for natural competitors to do well. From what I have read, anavar helps build muscle with very few side effects and clenbuteral helps you lose weight without losing much muscle mass. I also know girls who have used these drugs with success. Of course, that is not to say that they weren’t dieting and training their butts off, but nonetheless, they said they noticed a big difference on the ‘roids.
I am not going to lie, I have consider steroid use but I have not taken the plunge. It is frustrating because many of the top teams offer drugs under the table to their top competitors. I do not build muscle easily. It took me a good 6 months to gain 6 pounds and when I got sick I lost some of that. That is why steroids look so appealing to me and I am sure other girls feel the same way. In an effort to build those gorgeous glutes and stunning shoulders a little help from some gear would be a blessing, right? Well, not if you screw up your hormones, metabolism and potentially your heart and liver. Plus, because so few steroids are regulated for quality, you don’t know what you are getting. And all for what? A plastic trophy. No thanks.
I am not sure if I am being naive but I really want to believe that with proper training and diet you can get the “bikini look” without the use of drugs. I am not here to judge you if you are using any type of steroid– that’s your choice– but for now I want to remain natural and see how far my body can go on its own.
What do you think? Have you tried gear?
