Can Everyone Build Muscle Naturally?

Bodybuilding supplement advertising propaganda suggests that those who wisely avoid anabolic steroids need to find bottled assistance in the form of a pill or powder in order to build muscle, but this notion poses several questions. Firstly, are supplements a viable substitution for steroids, and secondly, if they are, is using such products consistent with the spirit of natural bodybuilding?

No bodybuilding supplement can replace the hormonal boosting impact of anabolic steroids, despite advertising suggesting otherwise. In fact, the reason many weight lifters avoid steroids is not because they don’t aid in building larger muscles, but rather due to the serious health risks associated with all hormonal drugs (heart failure and other cardiovascular issues, cancer, organ disease, etc), so logically, when searching for a bodybuilding supplement replacement, how can such a product possibly provide anywhere near the muscle gains of steroids without also impacting health in a negative way? If this were possible, no bodybuilder would use steroids, as they could purchase supplements legally and achieve the same benefit with no risk, but this is the fantasy world which supplement advertising tries to create in order to encourage confused bodybuilders to try their products.

To build muscle naturally, there are only two necessary components – a properly designed bodybuilding diet plan, and a potent weight training workout routine. The combination of these two foundational elements is what maximizes genetical potential, allowing significant muscle mass improvements without the health risks associated with bodybuilding supplements or steroid drugs. Unfortunately, because so many make serious errors in their diet and weight training plan that prevents muscle gains, they are strongly tempted to either experiment with supplements or even steroids, when there is a substantial amount of natural muscle building potential that has remain untapped as a result of diet and weight lifting mistakes. If you are unsatisfied with your level of muscle growth, before wasting time and money on supplements that don’t work as advertised, or risking health, well being and life itself with steroids, please correct the mistakes in your diet and workout plan, as by doing so, impressive results will soon follow.
