My daughter wants to know if women have to take steroids to build muscles?
No, women do not have to take steroids to build muscles. Women and girls can strengthen, firm, tighten and tone their muscles through resistance training, such as weight machines or free weights.
They will, however, not see significant increases in the size of the muscles.
Typically, women are not looking to increase muscle size substantially anyway. Some women with significant muscle hypertrophy, such as many bodybuilders and power lifters, will unfortunately use steroids or other substances like growth hormones to obtain those results.
I would not recommend this, however, as there are many deleterious effects including unknown effects that could prove harmful to a woman’s health.Both comments and pings are currently closed.
