Insulin Usage - Good or Bad?
If you have turned to this page in
the hope that you will be able to pick up the latest methods of taking insulin
whilst training, then I am afraid that you are going to be greatley disappointed
indeed. I am sorry, you have not been misled, hence the reason for this
explanation at the beginning of this chapter.
My point? Well, I have been in
this sport for many many years now and I am proud to say (touching wood at
this moment) I have NEVER in all that time had any serious problems with
taking steroids that could be regarded as news. The odd spotty zit, a lack of
the old hardy har har, a headache from the tablets that a once spunk bubble of
an arse hole dealer sold me years ago, that turned out to be something from
his mums medicine cabinet throw out day (he ended up eating them all), but
really nothing at to be bothered about.
(Ahem - please read the next few lines a couple of times as it is a JOKE and I
want you to fucking well understand that please - thank you!)
I have had more pricks (needles people) in my arse than a second hand
dartboard and Old Mother Hubbards pin cushion! (End of joke!)
Steroids, yep I know them just
about as good as anyone around this shit tip world and that is a fact. Most of
'em know the scientific names off by heart better than me any day and can
even recite their basic molecular structure whilst snapping their knackers
together like a pair of Spanish maracas (spell?) but really, look at the
picture of my face my friend! Does it look as if I give a fuck? I know what
most gears feel like and what they do when they are in the body, what
combinations and how they react in almost ALL cycles and stacks. Why? Because
I have took them, trained on them for myself and hundreds of champs over the
world. Hey, anyone can read a book and learn a word or two - agree?
What I can say is that I have
not taken this insulin shit and trained on it. You can now ask yourselves how
can he comment about it?" I can, simply because I have seen so many people
try and get their levels as close to the norm as possible. It is my own
opinion and I am not giving you advice on how to take it, I am saying that if
you do, then here are the problems that CAN occur - and do! I don't know the
totally correct or indeed safest way to advise on something that can cause so
much problems to a healthy body when there is no need for it at all. Like many
other people, I would seek the BEST advice possible if I could. Even then,
could I be that sure? Of course not - that is why the margins are so small.
Too risky me old sparras. Why fuck up the blood sugar level that is most
likely working perfectly well? You have no idea how quick you can die using
this shit IF you get it wrong. What price low fat?
I know the next thoughts of the
anti-steroid league even before they have finished reading this bit. Could it
be something like,"How can he say that about insulin for instance when he
(and many others like him) pump themselves full of the steroid shit that they
Easy really, please tell me why the streets are not lined with dead
bodybuilders who have DIRECTLY died as a result of taking steroids? Anyone's
hand up? Thought not. Now piss off please! Line up the heroin has beens and
'are nows will ya?. This should be fun.
There has been, however, many
unfortunate people who have died as a result of taking OTHER shit ALONG with
steroids and we all know it. The press get a hold of it and it's bye bye
bodybuilding reputation once again. As we are about to look at the insulin
problem as we know it now, I can say that there has been quite a few deaths
because of it and yet we only get to know about it when a bodybuilder dies!
Steroids were said to be so bad
for us long ago even before anyone they had really tested them. They also said
that we would suffer in time to come as we bodybuilders did not know what the
long term side effects of steroids would be. Apparently, we were to suffer and
find out ourselves in time. I think the twat who said that was writing the
paper with his top lip stapled up. He or she, wrote it so long ago that I
don't think that there has been anything on this planet that has had more of
a chance to wait for bad side effects than steroids have.
Oh by the way, during the time
that they were waiting to laugh there bollocks of at us and see us mutate into
big bollocked crazy, headed psychotic sex crazed maniacs; steroids have been
healing people as well for all these years. What a shit side effect eh? Ah
well, I must away and check the size of my gonads and also get on with the
task of explaining to you lot how easy it is for you to drop down dead quicker
than a whores knickers if you are stupid enough to use insulin. Here we
What is Insulin?
Millions of people around the world who suffer from Diabetes, rely on insulin
every day in order to keep them alive. They need this because Diabetes occurs
when the gland that lies behind the stomach, called the pancreas, fails to
produce sufficient insulin which is needed to handle the starches and sugars
(carbs) that we eat. These in turn are broken down to a sugar substance called
glucose; insulin is needed to convert glucose to energy. If our bodies cannot
produce it naturally, then many problems can occur. Please bear with me
whilst I try and explain the care that diabetics HAVE to take in order to live
an ordinary day to day life AND stay alive.
Basically what happens is that
without the necessary amounts of insulin required, the levels of glucose in
the blood rises and actually spills over into the urine which in turn causes
large volumes of urine to be passed. The body, not being able to convert the
glucose to energy, then becomes excessively tired. If this problem is not
treated with insulin, several other symptoms then can follow immediately which
usually are: extreme thirst, vomiting and drowsiness for a start.
The extreme problem that diabetics have to watch out for is a 'Hypo' or an
Insulin Reaction. 'Hypo' is short for hypoglycaemia which actually means
'low blood sugar'. I have been told that 'Hypos' can actually occur
for no apparent reason but are mainly brought on if a sufferer also either
does one or more of the following:
Takes more exercise than they
normally would. Eat less than the correct dietary allowance required. Miss or
postpone a meal or snack. INJECT THE WRONG DOSE OF INSULIN!
I feel that this section is so
important that all of the other symptoms need highlighting also. These can be
as follows: Blurred vision - excitement - tingling sensations in lips, fingers
or tongue - weakness - confusion - pallor - hunger - nervousness -
sweating -irritability and palpitations.
I have highlighted the fourth
reason in the 'Hypos Dangers' section purely for the bodybuilders alone.
Not to imply that the 1, 2 and 3 are no less important to diabetics, but they
are NOT as important to non-diabetics as is the last one to us (or any other
non-diabetic sufferer of course). The main reason for this section on insulin
and it's use in this sport is to explain simply that hypoglycaemia can be
caused simply by getting the dosage WRONG!
One other terrible side effect
from an incorrect dosage of insulin is that you could slip into a coma from
which death can also occur. With the greatest of respect to all those who
suffer from Diabetes, I have learned longer?
It is as simple as this, if your
calculations are wrong by the slightest margins you can die - period! You
could fall into a coma and also die, the margin of error is that close.
Finally, you must consider this.
Maybe one of the reasons you have bought this book is to find out different
methods such as the usage of insulin etc. I am sorry if I have disappointed
you but I cannot advise on something that I know personally we do not need in
this sport. The risks are too high. Even if you were to consult your local
G.P. and ask for advise on the use of insulin whilst bodybuilding, he too
would not be able to be that accurate.
Should the pro's deem it
necessary, then that is up to them. To be honest, life at the top
cannot be that good especially when living on borrowed time is not an option.
