Steroid belly??

Just a query really, loads of big guys at my gym and clearly on a lot of gear. Some look fantastic, some dont. A number of the guys have stomachs/abs bigger than their chests!! They're big units but the stomach region just looks overpowering. Is there a reason for this? What AAS should I be looking at to avoid similar? Still researching the whole AAS thing (currently a PH user) and looking at a simple first cycle (probabaly test-e 500mg/week) but dont want to end up like one of the afore mentioned guys with ridiculous bellys. Would like to lean bulk really, is this possible?

    No doubt down to the HGH injections.
     
    Anything is possible and any sides are possible they are meds after all.
     
    Standard first cycle that mate 500mg of test a week. You can get lean on most roids if your diet/training is bang on.
     
    Have a look in articles for advise you've been on here for a long time so shouldn't have to explain the basic questions.

    I've noticed this in a lot of big guys & I'm sure it can't be blamed on HGH.
     
    Probably 2 reasons -
     
    1. A lot of big guys never properly cut up as they are too afraid of loosing mass, so probably a lot of visceral fat builds up.
     
    2. Lots of eating causes stomach bloat pushing the stomach out which over time stretches the stomach muscles outwards.

    Heavy users with big belly's is do to internal organ growth not fat. I cant see this happening from test e and weather its from other zoids or human growth hormone I'm not sure. Anybody else know what this is all about??????

    HGH for oversized gut or extra growth on the jaw (see Stallone).

    WTF?
     
    no its not down to the GH unless they have a pro card.
     
    they are just bloating.  oxy/dbol/deca are bad for it, also sust blows me up in days if I have a **** diet. test e can give bloat if you don't have a tight diet/ control estrogen.

    I've never known of it as a side for Test, but I'm not sure what super huge doses would do. I'm just don't understand how Test could make abnormal growth your jaw bone or in your internal organs.

    Its down to visceral fat behind the abbs pushing them out.   We are talking like  a pot belly though.  The bloke in that video is clearly down to high and long usage of alot of meds .
    Visceral fat is just bad luck but eating a high calorie count doesnt help

    Ok mate good answer though it looks a bit more than just fat in the vid. This is from scoobyworkshop.com
     
    Distended Stomach. Here is a video showing the "pregnant bodybuilder" effect. This is very,very common in pro bodybuilding circles but not so common with casual users. My guess (just a guess) is that this only occurs at insanely high doses. Those steroids make everything grow, not just your muscles. All your intestines and internal organs grow too. When someone taking lots of steroids relaxes, their belly is HUGE - like a barrel or pregnant woman. Of course they can suck it in and flex it for a photo shoot but when they relax, its nasty. My guess is that this effect is not reversed when the steroids are stopped, the distension is probably permanent.

    I have a slight distended belly and the only med that seems to work on it is Anavar.   Low carbs helps a little but ruins your diet

    I thinK in generel a pot belly is through over eating and not doing enough cardio.  We all store fat in different areas.  Some woman have it all there ass and some have it all their legs.  With us blokes it always the gut, face etc.
     
    The bloke in the video is down to organ growth.  hgh, slin and bulking meds galore
     
    Steroids and hgh does play its part though mate

    If it is fat it will be plainly obvious by caliper testing skinfolds.
     
    I agree with Dr G, most likely sheer quantity of food. In addition to this, steroid users may be bloated from aromatisable steroids they are using at the time, and they might be carrying quite a lot of fat (men typically hold fat around the abdomen).
     
    Ever notice how much tighter you look first thing in the morning on an empty stomach?
     
     
     
    I'm not ruling HGH out, but I think this takes quite a bit of flak and is often just an easy scapegoat

    How on earth can you say it's not down to a med when like me you are unsure. Yes it's down to all the other meds, massive food intake and the HGH/Insulin can increase IGF -II which causes organ growth ie Intestine/stomach to grow.

    couldnt some of it be down to the abs themselves, after all abs are muscles aswell and working would make them grow
    but would like to know if hgh would cause the organs to grow heard it a few times but cant find any hard facts

    No one can answer that question dude unless you have proof. I think you'll find most hardcore bb in general have bigger organs.
