Research shows steroids can benefit athletes for a decade after use!


New area of research – can steroids benefit athletes for a decade after use? Some now believe it does.

So, the question becomes, how long should an athlete, caught using, be banned from the sport.  The W.A.D.A. (World Anti Doping Agency) has provided a grant to carry out further research on humans at the University of Oslo and develop future protocols.

Original Article: http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-24730151

  • “In science if you cheat, you are out for life, and my personal view is that it should be similar for athletes,” [Prof Gundersen] said.
  • Researchers found that power lifters who have stopped taking steroids had an advantage in their sport years after they stopped using the drugs.
  • Previous strength training with or without the use of anabolic steroids facilitates subsequent re-acquisition of muscle mass even after long intervening periods of inactivity

Supporting Research:

  1. http://www.pnas.org/site/misc/selections_8_16_10.shtml#muscle

  • “Myonuclei acquired by overload exercise precede hypertrophy and are not lost on detraining”

  2. http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1113/jphysiol.2013.264457/abstract

  • When mice were briefly treated with steroids the muscle mass and number of nuclei increased. The drug was subsequently withdrawn for 3 months and the muscle mass returned to normal, but the excess cell nuclei persisted. When such muscles were subjected to overload they grew by 30% over 6 days while controls grew insignificantly.
  • Our data suggest that previous strength training might be beneficial later in life, and that a brief exposure to anabolic steroids might have long lasting performance-enhancing effects.

**Please note: this is not in support of any steroid use and only provided on the basis of future banning of a cheating athlete at the competition level.
