From what I've heard legal "steroids" (i.e., prohormones) are more dangerous than straight-up anabolic steroids. I know A LOT of people who've used anabolics and, just like anything else, if used responsibly you'll probably be pleased with the results. Just make sure you have your PCT (post cycle therapy - clomid, etc.) on hand at all times - even many legal prohormones require PCT, though they won't recommend it on their labels.
I'm only 28 years old and I make GREAT gains naturally so I've never been all that interested in doing them myself, but when I'm in my mid-40's I'm gonna be the first one in line at my Dr's office asking for HRT and/or HGH - that sh!t will keep you young (along with paleo of course)!
I began this Primal journey on December 30th, 2009 and in that time I've lost over 125 LBS.
