Hey, great list!
I don’t use them personally, but I train with a few women who do. I’ve noticed some of the side effects and they’ve mentioned it too.
But I didn’t know what to look for and how many alternatives there were – so while I’ll probably still choose not to use any (my goals are just to stay active), I’ll pass this along to my friends who want different results than I do. Maybe it’ll help them make some good choices, or to switch to something with fewer (or no) side effects.
The side effects associated with steroid abuse are particularly negative for women, resulting in a whole range of various problems and unwanted effects including – but not limited to – deepening of the voice, increased body hair and clitoromegaly , or an abnormal enlargement of the clitoris. So take a look at the following professional female body builders and decide for yourself where you think the boundary between beauty/obsession lies and whether or not these people have left that line so far behind that they begin to lose all traces of their femininity. One note: The portraits are done by photographer Martin Schoeller as part of a series of portraits of female bodybuilders, check out some of his work here .
The fact that such genetic "outliers" are so rare is why you've waited so long without "many" claiming "to prove it off a bit" -- because, relative to the total number of all the naturals doing bodybuilding, the percentage able to exceed the Calculators is indeed "1-in-a-million" (again, assuming for discussion that your claims of your stats are factual and that Miller had always been and was PED-free when he claimed he was). There simply are NOT "many" top bodybuilders with stats exceeding the Calculators, not lifelong PED-free bodybuilders.
