    In the small study, investigators found that the left ventricle, the heart’s main pumping chamber, was significantly weaker during contraction (systolic function) in participants who had taken steroids compared to a group of similar non-steroid users. The steroid-using group included 12 male weight lifters, average who reported   Good to finally see studies on long term steroid results are not to good. Anabolic Steroids May Weaken the Heart Study Shows Long-Term Use May Have an Impact on Heart Pumping Function By Salynn Boyles WebMD Health NewsReviewed by Elizabeth Klodas, MD, FACCAp -- Long-term use of anabolic steroids appears to weaken the heart, and it is not clear if this weakening

I normally don't buy into the bullshit I hear, but in the book Optimum Sports Nutrition, DR. Michael Colgan wrote" Steroids can pathologically enlarge the heart.

To examine this possibility, the present study measured left ventricular size and function with use of Doppler echocardiographic techniques in 23 weight lifters: 12 who were currently using anabolic steroids and 11 who reported that they had never used these   Serious cardiovascular side effects by anabolic steroids Figure 2 Histology of endomyocardial biopsy from patient 2.

A healthy left ventricle pumps 55% to 70% of the blood that fills the heart. This measurement is known as ejection fraction. Ten of the 12 steroid users had ejection fractions of less Chronic abuse of steroids can produce a variety of detrimental effects on the heart, including: increased left ventricle size and increased thickness of the ventricular septum (DePiccoli B, et al.

) and dilated cardiomyopathy (Ferrera PC, et al. ).?id= Objective: The purpose of this study was to follow the ventricular function and cardiac hypertrophy in rats undergoing a resistance-training program for a period of 3 months.

Design: Forty animals were divided into two major groups: control (n=16) and resistance trained (n=24). From the resistance-trained group, 12 animals were resistance trained for 1 month and another 12 for 3 :// Another research was conducted between the weight lifters.

Steroid-related heart impairment is severe enough to potentially increase the risk of heart The researchers used Doppler echocardiography, which uses ultrasound to generate moving pictures of the heart's size and function, to study the function of the each weight lifter's left ventricle, which is the blood-pumping chamber.

"The common myth is that steroids make the heart grow massively large," Baggish said. "We didn't see that."   Resistance training (RT) is a popular method of conditioning to enhance sport performance aswell as an effective form of exercise to attenuate the age-mediated decline in muscle strength and mass.
