Are There Any Symptoms Of The Steroid User?
In comparison to the other bodybuilders, who is considered to be on steroids lets take a look did steve cook showing some signs and symptoms of steroids by his body.
Definitely, those bodybuilders who considered to be on steroid has shown particular signs and symptoms.
Such as the massive gains in short interval of time, balloons like arms, bloating, huge traps and some other signs and the symptoms.
Steroids elevate the inner body temperature and also responsible for elevated blood pressure.
Steroids can raise the level of testosterone in the body which raised the level of bad cholesterol in a result. Whereas there is a difference in skin colors such as pink color in white men and a darker color in Samoan men.
Steve has great skin color without any fluctuation in color.
Flushed skin: Negative
Wide Jawn line And Increase In Masculine Characteristics:
The steroid users identically have a large face structure as compared to a non-steroids user.
This will also increased masculine.
There is no appearance of the wide jawline in steve cook, As we know the square looking face directly shows high testosterone which can be a result of steroids.
Wide Jawn line And Increase In Masculine Characteristics: Negative
Thinning of hair:
One of the steroid side effects is thinning hairs. This can happen due to the imbalance hormone and accumulation of dihydrotestosterone.
Whereas Steve’s hairs are thicker, and his eyebrows, are also noticeably thicker.
Thinning of hair: Negative
Acne or stretch marks, Gynecomastia and Bloating:
As we all know acne or stretch marks are two of the main side effects of Dianabol steroid.
Steve has not any acne or stretch marks on his back or shoulders.
Gynecomastia or man boobs is a condition in which the male breast tissue starts to grow in an unnatural way, Gyno is very common in juicers whereas rare in natty. And as we noticed there is no sign of gyno in Steve’s chest.
Steve’s body never seen or spotted with a steroid gut and bloating symptoms till yet.
Acne or stretch marks, Gynecomastia and Bloating: Negative
Photoshop Looks And Balloon-Like Appearance:
The most common sign of the steroid users is they are huge in size as they were photoshopped and 3D appearance (balloon-like arms).
Whereas, Steve Cook has the most amazing and defined physique.
Steve cook’s physique didn’t show any signs and symptoms of juice till yet, although Steve looks huge it’s just because his fat percentage is around 7.
Photoshop Looks And Balloon-Like Appearance: Negative
Steroids have the ability to develop massive stage ready build in no time.
Whereas natural bodybuilders took time to develop a body that fulfills all standard to compete.
If we compare Steve cooks’ transformation with steroid users transformation we found that his gains are not as rapid as steroid users, he works hard years and years for this physique. see the Gain timeline.
Rapid transformation: Negative
Gain timeline: (Lost 20Ibs from 2010 to today):
As you can see in the above picture of Steve Cook, He probably does not gain any muscle size, since he left high school.
You will also notice his arms were bigger in size than today.
He weighs 20Ib more and was of 235lb than today, even he lost a pound instead of gaining.
Maybe he has taken some steroids like clenbuterol at the time of high school, but there are no signs and symptoms that he is on steroids.
He might have taken help from steroids, at his high school days to lose some pounds and retain lean muscle but not anymore.
Is He Tested For Steroid Use From Bodybuilding Federations:
As Steve has competed in the Olympia Men’s Physique category and also participated in the NPC competitions for the natural bodybuilding federation, but unfortunately the federation is not updating a drug test protocol on their official website.
Whereas, we all know tests are not up to the standards that can differentiate between the steroid user and the natural one.
Some medical test like Urinalysis, are taken to differentiate between natty and not. but such tests like Urinalysis can be dodged.
Because once you stop taking steroids it will not detect in your system just after 24 hours, so detection time is important for urinalysis.
The other testing tool is through the blood samples.
Most of the people are claiming that Steve was stopped to compete in 2014, just because he didn’t pass the random drug test in 2013.
When he was asked about his steroid status, he replied that he never wanted to be like a hulk as his first priority is health.
My assumption on steve cooks steroid status is completely based on the gain timeline and signs and symptoms.
Based on evidence it seems like Steve is natty!!
Although it seems like Steve Cook may have taken clenbuterol in his high school days to help him get ripped.
He is always considered as genetically freak or the God gifted, same as Chris Jone, Donte Franklin, and Simeon Panda.
