How Testerone Affects Building Muscles

Recommended Posts

Hi,

According my understanding, testosterone can make more protein from amino acids that could be made without them. I know that the muscles can't utilize all the protein that you eat. What I wonder is why steroids and testosterone helps building much bigger muscles and why it can do it so much faster when the muscles can't utilize all the protein you eat.

My understanding is, exercise builds muscles and protein enables the growth, steroids et al enables the exercise, not the growth.

I think it aids water retention in the muscles as well, which plumps them up. Once they stop taking them they go all flabby.
