Using a randomized "double-blind" "placebo-controlled" design, 16 experienced male bodybuilders (age: 19-44 yr) either received ND (200 (-1), intramuscularly) or placebo for 8 wk. Body composition was assessed using the four-component model, combining results from underwater weighing, dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA), and deuterium dilution. Total bone mineral content and density were measured using DXA. Water compartments (extracellular water [ECW] and intracellular water [ICW]) were determined using deuterium dilution and bromide dilution.
For the steroid user, this steroid can almost be called essential to an off-season mass plan. But when we look at what it can do for recovery and healing it is almost in a class of its own. Couple this with its side effect friendly nature and this steroid is very hard to beat. However, there’s one important thing we’ve yet to address, erectile dysfunction.
