Anabolic steroids – chemical enhancers
WHY STEROIDS AND WHAT IS POSSIBLE ?
The body is in a constant state of \”protein turn over\”. Two terms the reader should
be very familiar with are catabolic (catabolism) and anabolic (anabolism). Catabolism is
a tissue wasting state and anabolism is a tissue rebuilding or growth state. The \”protein
turn over\” is a balance between the two. Many scientists believe that a 154 LB adult turns
over about 280 g of protein daily. Of course not all of this is muscle protein, but some
where around 30% is the general accepted amount. Guess what? This figure group is for
a sedentary adult, not an athlete, and refers to basal protein anabolism/catabolism. Using
30 % as a qualified representation of the amount of muscle proteins turned over, we see
about 77 LBS of the amount of muscle was both gained and lost in one year. This means
that this sedentary adult could have actually gained half again his body weight in lean
mass tissue without a single work out all year. Also a note of interest is the fact that he
actually gained and lost a total of 225 LBS in lean protein tissue in one year. By the way,
this is all fact established by research done
by W.E. Mitch and published in the New
England Journal of Medicine (96-335:1897)
. To find your own daily protein turn over rate
(PTOR), simply multiply your body weight in pounds by 1.818. (154lbs x 1.818 =
279.972g). This is your potential daily mass gain! (What?) Yes, if you could control all
metabolic factors this is the amount of protein based tissue you could gain in one day.
But being cheesy is not always easy.
