If you're a performance enhancing athlete, especially one who is just starting out, we strongly recommend you check out the steroid encyclopedia. If you have an interest in any topic, an encyclopedia is often an excellent place to start; after all, this is where truth and facts can be found. OK, fine, there is no actual steroid encyclopedia, not as a whole, but this does not mean we can't piece one together.
It is an unfortunate reality, the topic of anabolic androgenic steroids has been for many years labeled taboo, and you will find it is one of constant, high debate. In any case, with the right information at hand, and we assure you, it is there, you can piece together the information you need to complete your steroid encyclopedia. Of course, as there is a mountain of information out there, you need to know which information is worth your time; wasting your time on useless information is just that, useless.
A common question many may have is why is it important to piece together a steroid encyclopedia; after all, is it really necessary? It is true; many people make a mountain out of a molehill when it comes to anabolic steroids, but true, successful use still means a full education is needed. Anabolic steroids are very powerful hormones, and they demand your respect, but they can be used safely and effectively if you know what you're doing. Further, supplementing safely and effectively is not enough, if you want true success you need to know how to maximize your results, and piecing together a steroid encyclopedia can provide all of these things.
It may go without saying, but sometimes the obvious eludes us; to build a solid steroid encyclopedia of knowledge you're going to need a few books. There are thousands of books written that discuss anabolic androgenic steroids on some level, but there are three specific manuscripts we highly recommend:
1. Anabolics by William Llewellyn
2. Legal Muscle: Anabolics in America by Rick Collins
3. Underground Steroid Handbook by Dan Duchaine
With these three books alone, you will garner more knowledge about anabolic steroids than most every meat head at your gym combined. Further, with these three books you will surpass the knowledge of most internet message board wonder boys, and that brings us to another important piece of the puzzle.
The internet is a terrific place to gain the knowledge you need to build your steroid encyclopedia, but it comes with a strong warning. Anyone on earth can post and publish anything they want online, and just because you can find it online does not mean it should be taken as truth. The obvious question is where do you go, how do you know who to trust, and how can you ensure you avoid the garbage? Well, if you have the three above books at your disposal you'll already have a solid foundation that will get you through a lot of trash. Even so, while that will be useful, we can point you in the right direction as it pertains to online knowledge building. First and foremost, avoid steroid message boards as primary means of gaining knowledge, if you don't you may find yourself in a mess. Make no mistake, steroid message boards can be fantastic tools, they are a great place for sharing experiences and offering one another small advice, but anyone can post anything on a message board. At any rate, be careful with message boards, build a solid foundation with the recommended books first, the websites to follow and then more or less supplement your knowledge with steroid message boards.
Without question, the best place to go if you want to build a solid and well-rounded steroid encyclopedia is steroid.com. Steroid.com is the premier website of anabolic information, where with a few clicks of a button you can find every question imaginable answered thoroughly and with accuracy, and not to mention with the facts to back up answers. Other useful sites include steroids.org and rxmuscle.com and of course a few similar ones, but you will need to avoid government sites at all cost. This may be a surprise, as you'd expect government sites that are medically based to have the best information available, but remember government sites are forced to hold to the ruling of congress, despite nearly all medical entities opposing current legislation. The point, if you're trying to build a solid steroid encyclopedia, sites by the NIH, AMA, FDA and NIDA are going to be as useful as a combination eggbeater/shoehorn.
