What is the safest AAS?

Testosterone at a replacement dose is the safest AAS one can use. Even at higher doses, Testosterone remains one of the safest AAS for long-term use. Other AAS that are often described as “safe” (even though they are not entirely safe and can cause serious side-effects if misused) are Primobolan, Anavar, Turinabol, Proviron, Nandrolone and Masteron.

Can you do oral-only AAS cycles?

Even though using injectable AAS is more sustainable in the long run than only using orals, there are ways to run oral-only AAS cycles successfully. However, I do not think serious enhanced athletes should rely on oral-only cycles because that would limit their progress while also increasing the risk of suffering from side-effects like sexual dysfunction, lethargy and low motivation.

Do all AAS cause hair loss?

Only Testosterone, Trenbolone and (most) DHT-derived AAS are likely to accelerate hair loss in men who are prone to losing hair in the first place. Hair loss on other AAS is technically possible but very rare.

Thankfully, hair loss can almost always be mitigated by using Finasteride (in the case of Testosterone) or topical antiandrogens like RU-58841 in all other cases.

Can AAS cause rage/aggression?

Only Trenbolone and Halotestin are known for causing aggression or “roid rage”. Could it happen on other AAS? Yes, but that is very unlikely as long as they are not misused.

Will AAS cause infertility?

Becoming infertile due to AAS use is very difficult. There are countless stories of men knocking up their girlfriends by accident during heavily suppressive cycles and/or after years of blasting and cruising.

Still, all AAS besides Proviron will have a negative impact on sperm production and sperm quality if HCG is not used. The AAS that are most likely to cause fertility issues are Nandrolone, Trenbolone and Trestolone.

Can men over 40 use AAS?

Yes, in fact TRT can help men over 40 a lot by increasing their energy, delaying neurodegenerative disease, strengthening their bones and muscle mass, improving their sexual function and their overall quality of life.

TRT can even provide all these benefits to the elderly if done properly under the guidance of a doctor who knows how to detect and manage prostate cancer (let’s face it, prostate cancer affects all men if they live long enough to get it).

Now, when it comes to doing cycles/blasts, men over 40 should be very careful and only use the “safer” AAS at lower doses and for shorter periods of time, all while going out of their way to mitigate side-effects and to monitor their health through bloodwork and scans.

I do not think men over 60 should use any AAS other than Testosterone at TRT doses, because both their organ and cardiovascular health could be seriously compromised by traditional cycles.

After being an independent researcher for all these years, he has decided to share his knowledge with the bodybuilding community through his science-based articles. His approach to enhanced bodybuilding can be summed up in the saying “less is more”, as he believes that prioritizing harm mitigation and looking for ways to maximize the positives is the key to longevity in bodybuilding.
