Answer
Asif,

Thank you for writing. Do not do steroids! This is very dangerous. Steroids are linked to
kidney failure, liver problems, mood swings, elevated cholesterol and heart disease. Many
people, including professional body builders have died from steroids. Is getting big and winning
a contest really worth your health and especially your life? Steroids are typically not allowed in
contests either. If you wanna get big, eat a balanced diet, train right and eat lots of protein
especially after a heavy workout. Good luck Asif I wish you the best.
