Most women prefer a natural-looking man who's defined and is a gentleman. It's your choice today but I hope you go 'natural.' ...Read more

This therapy can change your life, and you need to ask your dr. ...Read more

Why is it that body builders lose their muscle if they're on steroids but not if they're natural?

Because : Taking anabolic steroids artificially stimulates your muscles to grow larger. Once the steroids are withdrawn, the body reverts to normal.
