General information about steroids

Today, almost everyone with the word “ steroids” immediately thinks about anabolic steroids, known to amateurs under the name “anabolic”. In this case, it is often forgotten that “steroids” is the general name of a whole group of various steroid hormones. Among them – hormones of the adrenal cortex (gluco- and mineralcorticoids), female sex hormones (estrogens and gestagens), as well as male sex hormones (androgens). In this book, we will only talk about the last – androgens. With their most important representative, testosterone, the reader was already introduced in the previous chapter. Therefore, henceforth, with the word “steroids” we mean anabolic-androgenic steroids.

Anabolic-androgenic steroids are synthetic derived formulations similar in some respects to the natural male hormone, androgen, testosterone. The main reason for their development was the intention to create a drug that would have high anabolic qualities of testosterone, but at the same time exclude its strong androgenic capabilities. “Great efforts were made to create a pure anabolic without an admixture of androgenic” side effects “(Kakhakian, 1976, Kruskemper, 1965).” (Quoting from “Doping – Prohibited Drugs in Sport”, p. 51, Dirk Klasing, Manfred Donicke, etc.). To realize this idea, huge changes were made to the steroid molecule. The newly created steroids differ at that time either by an anabolic androgenic function that is underestimated, or they have increased effectiveness in relation to both qualities. Some steroids have received such structural changes that have led to even higher androgenicity and an underestimation of anabolic activity. This explains the differences in action, effectiveness, side effects of existing steroids. The creation of pure anabolic, where the anabolic and androgenic qualities of the steroid would be completely disrupted, failed. Therefore, the so-called anabolic steroid (anabolic) has a certain proportion of androgenic effect, and vice versa, the androgenic steroid (androgen) has anabolic qualities.

And so you think that to quickly gain strength and build muscle mass, it is better to use an anabolic steroid with minimal androgenicity. Nothing like this, because. The name “anabolic steroid” does not tell you anything about the power of anabolic effects, it is known only that the anabolic-androgen ratio of the original testosterone-ancestor is displaced here.To determine this ratio and (determine) the steroid as anabolic or androgen, testosterone serves as a parameter. , Steroids in which androgenic qualities are reduced are defined as “anabolic steroids,” and those with androgenic qualities are higher “androgenic steroids.” What’s the problem? The decrease in androgenic steroids The prescription of the drug inevitably leads to a decrease in its anabolic qualities, so the anabolic is less androgynous than the original testosterone, but at the same time it also has lower anabolic qualities.When reading the following chapters, the reader will understand that the so-called “mass steroids” occur exclusively From the group of androgenic steroids, where, along with the enhanced androgenic qualities, very strong anabolic ones are observed: “… the best androgen, or rather testosterone, is the most important anabolic for a man.” (From “Doping – Prohibited Drugs in Sport”, Dirk Clazing, Manfred Donicke, etc.). Before the athlete a dilemma arises, what to choose, because Androgenic steroids are not only strong in relation to their anabolic qualities, but also unfortunately have a lot of side effects. From this follows: the more effective the steroid, the more androgen it is, and, consequently, it is more dangerous for the organism.

Therefore, one should not agree with the opinion that is often heard today everywhere that anabolic steroids cause persistent non-reversible damages in their patients. This is partly true, and for most side effects, androgenic steroids are responsible. But the general opinion: “Steroids destroy the liver” is absurd, because Steroid steroid strife.

The first anabolic / androgenic steroids officially entered the trade in the early 50’s. And after a decade, most of the products sold today has been on the market. Because Recently, only a small number of new drugs have appeared, these above mentioned are only relatively called old. Of course, over the years there have been some changes, especially regarding the steroid sector of the drug. Many drugs are withdrawn from trade, some have arisen in other countries under a different name and are being sold again, in the 80s a few new ones were added. Steroids are still considered to be the most effective means for improving sports achievements. Back in the 50s they are firmly won its place in the world of sports. A significant role in the development of the relationship between steroids and sports was played by the introduction of dianabol, an oral steroid that was created by the team doctor, American weightlifters, Dr. John Ziegler, in his joint work with the pharmaceutical company CIABA in 1956. This drug and its followers found their place in the late 50’s, first among weightlifters, then spread widely in all other sports fields. Then his lightning spread in the 60-70s was promoted by the movement “Voddybulding”. Increasingly, they began to apply and Female athletes. In 1974, the International Olympic Committee made decisions on the introduction of anabolic drugs into the general list of doping.

“The 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal were the first where anabolic control was conducted.” (From “Doping in Sport” Zeling, Pollert, Nakfor). To date, there has been an unprecedented distribution of these medicines, as claimed in his book “Records with the help of doping?” Melvin X. Williams: “Anabolic steroids are a group of drugs that look like an epidemic in sports.” It is estimated that more than a million Americans “take anabolic steroids, including athletes and athletes of all age groups, from professionals to teenagers – schoolchildren. A black market has risen, receiving an annual income of about 100 mil. From steroid trade. $. “One of the reasons for the growing use of anabolic / androgenic steroids is the growing popularity of bodybuilding.” It’s clear that bodybuilding is in close connection with the spread of steroids, consumption of which is in direct proportion to the growing love for bodybuilding. “When in the 1970s, Bodybuilding, steroids became even more famous.In the 80’s when this sport got even wider, it happened with steroids.At the end of this decade, when bodybuilding became popular in the woo ah it touched and steroids. ” (“Handbook of Anabolic”, 6th issue, 1991, UN Phillips). And while we admire the muscles of the human body, while the use of anabolic / androgenic steroids has nothing to counteract from natural preparations, it is impossible to achieve the athletes’ refusal to take these pharmaceuticals. The popularity of Clenbuterol shows that it helps athletes to reach their goal faster. And if the growth hormones were on sale at reasonable prices, then they would be equally widespread as steroids.

And yet, steroids are not a miracle cure. Its effectiveness depends on such factors as training, nutrition, mood, the genetic predisposition of each individual athlete. The decisive factor is the last one listed, showing how much the athlete corresponds to one or another steroid of genetics.

Mode of action of steroids.

The physiology of anabolic / androgenic steroids is a complex topic. An exact description of all the biochemical processes occurring in the human body when taking steroids is impossible. And yet, we would like to give the reader a general overview of these processes, t. Some of their knowledge and understanding are essential. Because The athlete is always interested only in stimulating the achievement of the qualities of steroids, we want to talk in this chapter mainly about their effect on the muscle cell.

Steroids are either administered intramuscularly or taken orally. When injected, the substance enters directly into the blood, in the form of a tablet, passes through the gastrointestinal tract to the liver, where it either completely or partially breaks down, or enters the bloodstream in its original state. Accepted steroid enters the blood in the form of numerous steroid molecules that move along the bloodstream throughout the body. Each steroid molecule carries information that it must convey to certain cell bodies. The cells for this purpose have different kinds of receptors on their outer membrane. One of them is a steroid receptor, which is found in large quantities in muscle cells. Steroid receptors and steroid molecules – the same size and shape: fit each other like a key to the lock. The steroid receptor takes a steroid molecule, passing all other types of molecules past. The same happens with other types of receptors that do not perceive steroid molecules, because Are only for “their” molecules. When the steroid receptor and the steroid molecule combine into a complex, the molecule is capable of transmitting information to the muscle cell. It should be noted that most of the steroid molecules are in the blood in a bound state, forming compounds with proteins: the sex hormone binding globulin. This means that 98% of the steroid molecules in the blood are bound and only 1-2% in the free state. The latter just refer to steroid molecules, capable of forming a steroid-receptor complex. Bound steroid molecules are a passive part. In such a state the muscle cell does not take them. Precision for the sake of say that this percentage ratio fluctuates.

The formed steroid-receptor complex is directed to the nucleus of the cell, where it joins certain segments on DNA segments of nucleic acids (dysoribonucleic acids). Then follows the transcription, i.e. The DNA is imprinted. The resulting ribonucleic acid leaves the cell nucleus and in the cytoplasm attaches to the RNA located here, where an increase in protein synthesis takes place via translation. In combination with intensive anabolic exercises with lifting weights, this leads to a transverse increase in the muscle cell (muscle hypertrophy). Enhanced protein synthesis is considered as the main effect of steroids on the muscle cell, while steroid molecules carry other important information for athletes. Much speaks in favor of the fact that steroids also have strong anti-catabolic effects. Thanks to them, the percentage of protein that breaks down in the muscle cell is reduced. In addition, steroid molecules block, located on the membrane of the muscle cell, receptors of cortisol. And the cortisol produced by the body, a strong catabolic hormone, loses its ability and the muscle cell does not lose protein.

Another advantage of steroids is that they increase the synthesis of creatine phosphate (CF) in the muscle cell. KF plays a crucial role in the recovery of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is a prerequisite for all muscle movements, because Is a combustible material, a necessary cage for the performance of work. ATP accumulates in the muscle cell and, when needed, turns into adenosine diphosphate. This process releases energy that allows the muscle cell to work. The reverse process of ADP in ATP also requires CF. The more it is, the faster this recovery and the more ATP is at the disposal of the muscle cell. In practice, this means that the muscle becomes stronger, but no more. The one who even once used the steroid Oxandrolone, knows that this drug works mainly on muscle strength. The fact is that it causes an increased synthesis of CF in the muscle cell. Another factor that is useful to athletes is that steroids accumulate carbohydrates in the muscle cell in the form of glycogen. This process is accompanied by an increased accumulation of fluid, which together with an increased muscle volume entails both an improvement in muscle endurance and an increased burst of strength. Steroids reduce the production of endogenous insulin. The muscle cell can, with their intake, absorb nutrients (carbohydrates in the form of glycogen and protein in the form of amino acids) in a lesser dependence on insulin. This gives athletes the opportunity to reduce the percentage of fat and improve the hardness of muscles, tk. Insulin, along with its quality of a strong anabolic hormone, turns glucose into glycerol and, ultimately, into a triglyceride, which leads to the growth of fat cells.

Anyone who has ever tried steroids knows that during the training in the involved muscles the “pump effect” is clearly observed, which the professionals call “steroid pampus”. The fact is that steroids increase the volume of blood and the number of red blood cells in the human body. Muscles acquire a more voluminous appearance. Along with these advantages, an increased flow of blood to the muscle cell increases the delivery of nutrients to it. Substantially high blood volume is provided by such androgenic steroids as Dianabol, Testosterone and, above all, Anapolon, which is partially expressed in the strong, even painful effect of the pump during exercise. Associated with this phenomenon of increased supply of oxygen to the body, runners are often used for medium and short distances. After the steroid-receptor complex fulfills its duty in the nucleus of the cell, the steroid molecule returns to the bloodstream and either for some time again becomes suitable for the above described function, or becomes an inactive molecule and eventually is excreted through the urine. Not all steroid molecules in the blood immediately connect to the sex hormone binding globulin or are in a free, active state. Some of them are immediately used by the body in the process of metabolism and are derived from it. Another part can be turned into an organism into female sex hormones – estrogens. This phenomenon is called aromatization and seems at first glance to be something unthinkable. But, if we consider the structure of the male sex hormone testosterone and female Estradiol closer, it catches the eye that they are very similar. The organism easily copes with the task (development) of the necessary structural changes in the molecule by means of enzymes. Some steroid molecules are transformed, like individual endogenous and exogenous parts of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DNT). It has a greater chemical affinity for the receptors of the muscle cell than testosterone itself, and therefore some experts believe that dihydrotestosterone is a more potent hormone compared to both male and female sex hormones, while it also has a high binding potential for Receptors (thyroid gland) of the sebaceous glands and their hair follicles. Interestingly, it can not turn into estrogens. Ultimately, all these molecules after a while are excreted from the body with urine.

We are aware that when reading this chapter, this or that question remains for you not cut off and that not all of you have become immediately clear and understandable because of a heap of complex information. And yet the athlete should be given a definite look at the processes taking place in the human body when taking steroids in order to understand the different qualities and types of effects of the drugs described below.

Health and stress

Among the reasons leading to serious diseases, we must first of all point to nervous overloads, negative psychological stimuli, and psychoemotional stresses. It is impossible to take into account the harm that even a simple word causes, how much it reduces the life of a person! It is irreparable damage that it does. Many severe illnesses, resulting in disability or death of a person in creative age, appear and develop as a result of severe or prolonged negative emotions. And first of all the heart suffers from them.

Fear of starvation, cold, before the terrible phenomena of nature, love dramas, the death of loved ones, finally meeting with enemies, rivals, battles with them put a person on the verge of extreme mental stress. As a rule, at these moments he acted: he threw himself into a fight, ran away, chased, built obstacles, and procured food.

Mental tension subsided, nerves found detente.

Nowadays, in most cases, in moments of emotional stress, even the most extreme, a person is forced to “turn on the brake system,” that is, to try to keep calm in any circumstances. “To seem smiling and simple is the highest art in the world” (S. Esenin). About a person who knows how to behave in a constant, proper form, they usually say: a cultured person, educated, strong-willed – this person will not drop, behave with dignity, etc. And this, of course, is correct.

This behavior corresponds to the highest concepts of the morality of modern man, his morality, behavior. But in these cases, the nervous system takes the load on itself. However, our nerves, like everything in the world, have a certain margin of safety. Gradually this reserve runs low, and anomalies appear, diseases that are a direct or indirect consequence of nervous system overstrain. There are many such anomalies, they can not be counted; It is difficult to find in the body a site that would not be depending on the state of the nervous system and on which there would not be an overexertion or stress.

Severe stress occurs under the influence of extreme irritants: severe intoxication, infection, burns, trauma, etc.

If as a result of the “extreme stimulus” there are damages or “stains” in the form of various pathological processes, the intensified activity of all mechanisms that adapt the organism to new conditions develops.

Stressful influences lead to profound violations of the functions of all systems and organs, which mobilize their forces to combat irritants. There is an intensified activity of the cardiovascular system, the nervous system, all endocrine and harmonic mechanisms. Adrenal glands expel a large amount of adrenaline into the blood. The latter causes violent vasospasm, which leads to increased activity of the heart, lungs, liver, excessive consumption of energy resources.

With prolonged or very intense action of the stimulus, the adaptive abilities of the organism may be insufficient or quickly consumed. This leads to loss or exhaustion of opportunities for resistance, and consequently, to the development of dystrophic disorders, the onset of the disease and even the death of the body.

Further development of this issue, in particular by Russian scientists, from the point of view of Pavlov’s study of nerves has shown that stress can arise not only from some physico-chemical effects on the body, but also from a mental trauma in the form of a rude word, An unpleasant message, a grievous grief.

Hence the new term “psychoemotional stress”, which can produce as much destruction in the body as the action of any physical agents.

A great work was done by Professor V. G. Startsev, who for twenty years experimentally studied this question in monkeys. He proved that psychoemotional stress is accompanied by deep changes in all physiological systems: excitation, change of electrocardiogram, heart rhythm, blood pressure, blood composition, blood sugar level, hormonal pattern, gastric secretion. He managed to prove that only that psychoemotional stress leads to a disease that repeatedly interrupts the natural, normal excitation of any system. For monkeys, a powerful psychoemotional stress is giving it immobility, the so-called immobilization stress. But other kinds of stresses can be applied, such as evasion from a female or catching a monkey running away from the enclosure. And if normal food excitement, that is, ordinary food, is repeatedly interrupted by immobilization or other stress, this will lead to a chronic violation of conditioned food reflexes, to gastric achilles, to precancerous diseases of the stomach.

The use of intensive work of the cardiovascular system with a five-minute pursuit of the monkey and its subsequent immobilization leads to hypertension and myocardial infarction. When a combination of sugar loads with immobilization develops diabetes mellitus, etc. That is, experimentally proved the possibility of the occurrence of severe diseases of various systems and organs under the influence of a psychoemotional stimulus.

The data obtained on monkeys help us to find an explanation of the causes of a number of human diseases under the influence of psychoemotional trauma.

It can be easily imagined that if the usual meal is interrupted by some unpleasant telephone conversation or quarrel, for example between spouses, then the normal food reflex is immediately broken, the gastric juice ceases to be produced, and the digestive function becomes disrupted. Repeated psychoemotional stresses during meals can lead to severe disruption of the function of the entire digestive tract, followed by an organic disease.

If psychoemotional stress occurs repeatedly during the vigorous activity of the cardiovascular system, serious cardiovascular disease may occur. If an unhealthy situation is created in the work collective, say, the boss will have a heartbeat when approaching the boss’s office, “like after a ten-kilometer run”. And if with such an excited work of the cardiovascular system there will be psychoemotional stress, this will inevitably affect the function of the cardiovascular system. With repeated stress in a similar situation, a serious illness occurs in the form of angina, heart attack or hypertension.

Great importance on the strength of the impact of psychoemotional stress is played by the psychological mood of a person, under which stress occurs.

If a person, already going to work, thinks about her with an unpleasant feeling, if at one thought about his colleagues painfully contracts his heart, in these cases stress will have a stronger impact than on a person going to work as a holiday.

Longevity and Intellect

Comparing the life and death of various people, one can not but conclude that the whole life of a person, all his behavior and even aging is determined by his intellect, that is, the central nervous system. The more developed his brain, the more perfect the processes inside the body, the longer they preserve the harmony that is inherent in nature in the very existence of man. And if some reason, whether external or dependent on himself, does not lead him out of balance, he will live long, to the last day retaining his human form in the full and deep meaning of this word.

Many scientists agree that the higher the level of activity of the central nervous system, the longer the individual’s life span. Attempts have been made to calculate the relationship between brain development and life expectancy. Based on a comparison of life expectancy and the ratio of the weight of the brain to the body weight, it comes to the conclusion that “the smarter lives longer”. This can be explained as follows: age changes in the central nervous system – one of the most important mechanisms of aging of the body. In other words, aging of the nervous system leads to aging of the whole organism.

The cells of the nervous system do not divide, that is, they do not reproduce. With the years, the death of cells and the change in brain weight are increasing.

As you know, the rapid increase in the weight of the brain begins with six to ten years and a slower one – from twenty-one to thirty. After that, there is a slow decrease in the weight of the brain. Thus, in men aged 20-25 years, the brain weighs an average of 1383 grams; At the age of 50-58 years – 1341 grams; At the age of 80-89 years – 1281 grams. In women, weight changes in the brain are less pronounced.

A person with a developed mind, possessing a larger brain, even in old age, retains a high potential of his activity, which leads to a better life activity of the whole organism.

Recently, we read a book by Sergei Alexandrovich Morozov about the great German composer Bach, published in the series “The Life of Remarkable People.” We drew attention to the composer’s inner circle – his friends, mainly from the music world. Almost all of them lived long. George Philippe Telemann, the famous composer and musician – 86 years, Johann Matthias Gesner, Bach’s friend, – 70 years, Erdman Neumeister, poet, librettist cantatas – 85 years old, Johann Mattheson, composer, music critic, 83 years old, Georg Friedrich Händel , The great composer – 74, Johann Adam Rijken, Hamburg composer and organist, – 99 years old.

We deliberately did not expand Bach’s circle of friends-he, of course, had more, but they were named only those whose portraits are placed in the book next to the portrait of Bach – apparently the composer’s best friends, since the author honored them with such attention. As you can see, they all lived for a long time – according to our times. But in fact at that distant time – the middle of the seventeenth century – medicine as a science was just emerging; The average life expectancy of people was half that of today. And what? .. Maybe there is a simple accident here? Or were they people with a happy life, ideal living conditions? ..

Randomness is unlikely, but, according to the theory of probability, it can still take place in our example. As for a prosperous fate, you can not say that. They were more martyrs of fate than her daughters. The German Hans, who lived in London, had to wage a real war for his music, Bach himself, who lived sixty-five years, had twenty children, half of whom he buried. Died at a young age, his first beloved wife. Throughout his life, the composer fought back from petty nitpicking of city authorities, clergymen, and envious musicians. The greatest composer who created hundreds of cantatas, fugues, arias, songs, suites, partitas, fantasies, chorals, pastors, variations, etc., was recognized as an unsurpassed organist, but did not see him as the creator of music. The author of the book notes bitterly: “The ingenious creator of music and the brilliant teacher has remained until his last days inaccessible to the understanding of poor colleagues and bosses.” To this we add a tremendous burden of work and cares for the family, which the great musician carried to the end of the days: he was a cantor at school, he played organ in two churches every day, there was no rest or respite. And it is not known how much he would have worked, how many would have created new works, were it not for the circumstances that developed in the most depressing way and, one might say, led him to death. In the last years of Bach’s life, attacks on him and his disciples intensified. In the press, the polemic that humiliated the great composer, rejecting his dear ideals, was aggravated. To the old eye disease, head disease was added. Neither of the other diseases the doctors could not cure, they both progressed and led to paralysis.

So what’s the matter? .. How can one explain that even in such unfavorable conditions, with such great physical and nervous loads, did Bach and his comrades live long? ..

We carefully read the pages of the life of the great composer. And again we come to the thought: a highly developed intellect contributes to the longevity of life. If we talk simplistically and compare a person with a machine, then the mind is a regulator of the vital activity of the organism.

Bach possessed a powerful mindset, a brilliant intuition. All his life he created music for temples, religious chorals, mourning motes; Sorrow and sorrow, sacrifice and death – the eternal motives of biblical subjects. “Passion according to Matthew,” “Christ, have mercy!” – lyrics and pleas intertwine, death as the finale of life everywhere comes to the fore. But in music written on biblical subjects, Bach asserts the triumph of life. He is an optimist, a lover, he believed in the triumph of light and reason, and in this faith he found strength for struggle and creativity. Faith also served as the source of his healthy, full-blooded life.

Bach was a wonderful creator, he intuitively realized the importance and, perhaps, the greatness of his work, and this consciousness added strength to him.

Extensive extracts, which we allowed ourselves to do, illustrate and confirm the fundamental idea: the mind and the psychic structure are the main regulators of the vital activity of the whole organism; Here are the main ways to increase life expectancy.

How to stay healthy?

Is individual immortality attainable? When can you expect a victory over the main diseases of our time – from cardiovascular diseases and cancer to influenza?

These and a number of other issues are closely related. And in the end, they rest on the question of how to live a long, happy and rich in good and useful life, how to avoid premature aging and violent death?

As soon as a person began to think about his life, as soon as he realized that it was very short, he began to think about how to extend it. Scientists in the distant past expressed thoughts that have now received theoretical justification. Hippocrates believed that a person dies not from chronic ailments, but from a new disease that joined them. Age and chronic ailments, he pointed out, only prepare the soil. A weakened organism is joined by some new, acute disease, and the person with it can no longer cope.

Pathological studies of people living for 100 years or more showed that none of them died of old age. All of them died of diseases. If these diseases could be prevented or cured, then people would live even more.

Of course, aging inevitably is present, and this process occurs not only in old age, but accompanies us during our entire life journey. Scientists have noted many signs of aging that appear even in active age – from 20 to 60 years: a decrease in the total protein content, an increase in cholesterol, replacement of red bone marrow with a yellow bone marrow, a gradual decrease in the spleen, tonsils, lymph nodes, atrophy of the thymus gland, etc. But only after 60 years begin to show signs that gradually turn an adult person into an old man. After 60 years, atrophy occurs, and then the disappearance of functioning cells of the most important organs and their replacement with connective tissue, a decrease in the adaptation (adaptability) of the organism to changes in the external environment; “Safety margin” of mature years begins to be taken.

So, gradually increasing, changes in the body lead to physiological old age, which precedes the natural death. Under normal conditions, these changes last a long time, people do not notice them and remain able to work throughout their life, although its intensity gradually decreases.

The newest data show that old age comes as a result of changes in the whole organism, all its organs, whose activities are regulated by the nervous system. And the longer the normal function of the nervous system persists, the later the aging of the organism occurs. And, conversely, the earlier the nervous system is exhausted, the faster old age comes.

To prevent any disease, to actively combat them, the very condition of a person, his training, training, physical endurance, etc., are very important. It is necessary to be able, from a young age, not to be afraid of difficulties and learn how to overcome them. In the development of many diseases, the person is to blame. If he has not developed immunity, if the body itself does not have the strength and resources to resist, then no medication, no treatment will not help. All medicine is built to awaken the slumbering forces in the body of resistance, to strengthen its struggle with harmful agents. And when the body does not have its own strength to fight, no matter what medicines we use, a person can not get better. And this we have in our practice numerous examples. A person who hopes only for medicine, but does nothing to develop, increase in his body strength to resist, to fight the disease, makes a big mistake, because medicine can not itself cure, it only helps the body. In addition, she treats illnesses, but does not maintain health, which must be protected by the person himself, doing everything necessary to strengthen it. This is called prevention, disease prevention. Medicine has done much and is doing to prevent epidemics, but individual prevention depends on the person himself.

What weakens the body, undermines its strength and contributes to the emergence of diseases? First of all, laziness, the reluctance to make excess movement, the desire to sleep more, lie down, motionless or sedentary lifestyle. Muscles and functioning tissues of a person swim with fat, which, like an inert tissue, is not capable of resistance. The body also lacks purity, non-observance of hygiene rules. In the mud, dust contains a large number of microbes, including those that cause various diseases. These microbes surround a person and always get into his body. But with a small number of such pathogens, a person copes, especially if he has well developed defenses. If the forces are weakened and microbes get very much – the body can not cope, and the person falls ill. And where there is dirt, where there is no hygiene, there are frequent illnesses.

The appearance of the disease contributes to the idle way of life. When a person works hard, he is in a state of stress. His brain, the whole nervous system is mobilized, the resistance forces are also not asleep. Relaxed, lazy man – and all his protective functions also weakened. At this time, unfavorable factors will quickly cause the disease.

Contribute to diseases and all bad habits that poison the body, weaken it, and primarily its protective functions.

To be healthy, one has to take care of oneself. Health is the greatest value. No health – no happiness. Life becomes not only uninteresting, but also often unnecessary. No wonder there is a popular proverb that a healthy beggar is happier than a sick king.

Health rarely comes by itself. For it it is necessary to struggle, it must be extracted, to care for its preservation.

What does it take to be healthy, and how should a person behave in order to maintain health?
Two examples.

Live in one house two friends. Both scientists, they are over seventy. One of them is a physician, agile, lean, alive. Once, slipping on the stairs and rolling on it on his back, he felt a sharp pain in his lower back. Nevertheless he got up and went to bed. The slightest movement of the body caused unbearable pain. He had three transverse processes of the lumbar vertebrae broken. Novocain blockades did not help. After lying there for three days, he, despite the most severe pain, got up and with the help of his wife made himself such a bandage that allowed him to walk and sit upright, without bending, with virtually no pain. And since that time he has already started working at his desk. Three months later he took off the bandages and felt no pain.

Another, full, with a solid belly, loves to eat and lie down. Happened to him trouble: got under the car and received a fracture of the humerus. We spent two weeks in the hospital, and then he was discharged home. However, he continued to lie at home. The hand was inactive, he started a congestive pneumonia with a high fever. Doctors began to give antibiotics and engaged in close lungs, leaving the hand without treatment. Another month passed. Pneumonia was cured, the heart began to make itself felt. There were interruptions, swelling on the legs. Have started a course of treatment against heart failure …

Whether he will bring it all out is unknown, but the hand will certainly not be full. And all because of the fullness, because of the stillness. The trauma of the hand was an excuse and justification for lying. Enhanced nutrition increased completeness and immobility, and here the man himself put himself on the brink of disaster. So the wise words of Hippocrates are confirmed in life at every step.

With a negligent attitude toward one’s health, one can quickly expend vital forces, even if the person is in the best social and material conditions. And vice versa. Even with material difficulties, not having much, a reasonable and strong-willed person can save his life and health for a long time. But it is very important that a person cared for longevity from a young age. The proverb “Take care of the honor from the youth” should be supplemented with another: “Take care of your health from the youth”.

8 rules of training for burning fat

In this article, the training for fat burning is described in plain language. Follow all the tips and you will start to lose weight.

What you need to know …

  • If you are serious about training for fat burning and weight loss, then you should allocate time for proper nutrition. If you do not have time, FIND IT.
  • Too often people try to get rid of excess weight only by exhausting interval training for endurance. If you want to burn fat, then you should switch to more competent strategies. For example, exercises on exposure of your metabolism (about what metabolism), weight training, bodybuilding and body strength conditioning (type of training with a certain arsenal of exercises from related disciplines).
  • When developing a weekly training plan, do not lose sight of the fact that different training styles are responsible for the development and restoration of different systems in our body. You should leave a small temporary space between different states of physical “stress” – the body needs recovery from pain in the joints, back, after nervous tension and metabolic jumps.
  • In an effort to lose fat, spin between two types of activity – brief intense training and long workouts for endurance.

Want to lose weight? Drop all the stupid fitness tips – they will be perfect for your grandmother. Real training for fat burning provokes muscular growth. Here are eight rules for effective weight loss + a small workout program for fat burning and a plan to bring these councils into action.

Weight Loss Training – 8 rules

1.Your priority is food

Yes, this article is about training, but nutrition is the only and most important rule in getting rid of fat. If you really want to remove it, take the time to go shopping, cooking, to keep a diary of your food. If you do not have this time, FIND IT! Cut back on the time you spend on TV, phone and social networks.

If you have already cut all possible time to the maximum and you still do not have enough, exercise less, but devote more time to your nutrition. That’s right – we shorten the training! For example, in my fat loss program, I highlight Tuesday and Saturday for shopping and cooking. These days, of course, you can also practice, but if you are a really busy person, do not chase two birds with one stone at a time – take care of your food first.

As far as what is, there is no definite strict rule. Perhaps you already know what kind of food is preventing you from achieving your goals. Although, of course, there are a few basic rules. Try, for example, the paleo diet as the basis of the diet (only natural single ingredient foods, meat, fish, eggs along with yolks and vegetables), without restriction in products that help you achieve what you want. That is, if you take protein cocktails, supplements and supportive muscle growth products, do not throw them. Do not limit yourself to useful carbohydrates.

2.Choose a serious endurance exercise

Regardless of your goals, effective training depends on a system of correctly chosen exercises. Effective exercises for fat loss will help you achieve any new goals in the future. Pay attention to complex, complex exercises, consisting of several elements at the same time.

3.Become stronger

Most people believe that strength is important for building muscle and increasing the overall effectiveness of training. If your goal is only fat loss, then you need to burn as much fuel as possible. For this, your body should not be immune to this fuel. The main problem with cardio for fat loss is that the more you exercise cardio loads, the better the result, and to get even better results, you need to consume more fuel. Thus, your body becomes more and more susceptible to the fuel that you “fuel” it. With force training everything happens a little differently. The better your results in strength training, the more weight you can raise. The more weight, the more and more intense it will burn out of you that fuel. It is strength training (for metabolic restraint, for resistance) that makes us stronger, which effectively helps with fat loss.

4.Grow Musculature

Everyone who wants to lose weight should think about how to grow musculature competently. Most people know about this, however, I do not stop repeating this truth again and again. Just a few grams of muscle can carry daily responsibility for the loss of kilograms of excess fat!

5.Raise metabolism after exercise

A few years ago, scientists claimed that slow cardio workloads help us lose fat. However, this answer to the initially incorrectly posed question. Training to lose fat is not due to the fact that fat is burned during training, but because it is burned for the next 24 hours after training. Short-term, highly effective exercises create an oxygen deficiency, which accelerates our metabolism even during the day after training.

6.Make a wise schedule

Making up the weekly plan, consider the influence of different types of activity on your body, and the degree of stress obtained from these activities, for example:

General stressors: sprints, high jumps, training with a bar;

Strain of the dorsal musculature: high-speed training and endurance training, training until exhaustion;

Metabolic stressors: interval training (ideal for fat loss, but severe in terms of longitude recovery after them).

Do not forget about free from physical activity time between training. If one day you choose the most intense, heavy workouts, then switch to lighter loads the next day. A sample lesson plan will help you understand how this works.

7.Change strategies in a circle

The main rule for achieving any goal is to strictly follow the program. In most cases, those who try to lose weight, use only exhausting, high-intensity interval training. This, of course, is great, but for a long time their effect is not enough. For weight loss, several strategies are needed at once:

Exercises for Metabolic Exposure: Use moderate weight for complex complex exercise variables of medium severity for the entire body.

Strength training: Use more traditional methods of strength training – this will allow you to take more weight when training with weights.

Bodybuilding: Focus on muscular building – this will increase the metabolic rate. Do fast walking – this will help burn a few extra calories.

Body strength conditioning: Focus on the hikes in the gym and complex exercises with lifting weights.

Focus not only in the periodicity of training, but also in the periodicity of the diet. When some switch to a slightly lower intensity workout, they start to earn fat. And, of course, this is not from training – training can not provoke the growth of adipose tissue. If you switch from reinforced workouts to the lungs, do not forget to exclude carbohydrates from the diet and reduce the amount of calories consumed. Otherwise, you again begin to get fat.

8.Get out on the air

Man is created by nature for living outdoors. Naturally, this does not mean that you need to grab the bar and stomp on the street for public strength training. Just try to do something physically active outside the house more often. Run sprints, carry winter loaded sledge, take a sledgehammer and beat her old tire to half-death. Try to go to work out with weights in the park. Do not forget about the “Farmer’s Walk” (with dumbbells in both hands) immediately after training. Any activity outdoors not only burns calories, but also raises mood, reduces psychological daily stress and more and more brings you closer to the goal.


All about Xenical

Obesity is an excess of body fat. Since the most caloric components of food are fats (one gram of fat contains 9 kcal, and one gram of proteins and carbohydrates, only 4 kcal), it is most effective to restrict the consumption of fatty foods. Fats are lighter and faster stored, they add flavor and a pleasant smell, thereby increasing hunger and slowing the feeling of satiety. The more a person uses fat in his diet, the more body weight. High fat diet leads to an increase in caloric intake per day by half. It is important to remember that very many products (such as sausages, sausages, cheeses, etc.) contain hidden fats and, therefore, are quite high in calories. Currently, the world’s leading experts are generally recognized that a healthy diet, in which fats make up no more than 30% of the daily diet, prevents the accumulation of fat in the body.

In order for fats from food to be absorbed by the body, first they must be split by the enzyme lipase, which is produced by the pancreas and enters the small intestine in small amounts shortly after eating. The action of lipase is that it increases the efficiency of the digestion of fats by the body.

Xenical is the first prescription drug that blocks the absorption of fats.

Xenical acts solely in the intestine, is not absorbed into the blood, blocks the enzyme lipase, which breaks down fats. In this regard, unsplit fats can not pass through the intestinal wall and are excreted from the body together with feces. Xenical is recommended to be taken three times a day with each main meal. It is necessary to know the mechanism of Xenical’s action. If the stool becomes fat and oily, therefore, you overeat fats. Thus, the appearance of fatty stool with Xenical is a kind of marker of excessive consumption of fat and requires a correction of the diet, that is, the restriction of fat consumed with food.

What is Xenical different from other drugs for weight loss?

Unlike Xenical, many drugs for the treatment of obesity act on the brain and reduce appetite. You eat less. Your weight is reduced – this is their effect. In order to get into the brain, these funds must go to the bloodstream. Therefore, these drugs have a number of side effects against the central nervous system and the cardiovascular system. But, most importantly, they practically do not help a person change their eating habits and lifestyle. Therefore, as soon as you stop taking these medications, the weight will quickly return. Xenical, on the contrary, is not absorbed into the blood, i.e. Does not affect the brain. Xenical does not reduce appetite. It simply prevents the digestion and absorption of fats and helps you control the amount of fat that you ate.

No. Because Xenical does not affect the brain, it does not cause addiction.

If I accept Xenical, can I eat anything I want?

Yes and no. Basically, you can eat all kinds of foods that you like, but only in smaller quantities. This is dictated by the fact that Xenical should be combined with a moderately hippocaloric diet, i.e. Reduce the amount of calories consumed by about 20% (600 kcal daily). Consult your doctor or dietitian for a more detailed calculation of the diet. The amount of fat consumed during the day should be divided into approximately three main meals.

Do I need to follow any special diet?

No. The weight control program with Xenical takes into account your personal preferences. Reducing the number of calories and fats in the diet, you should not adhere to a special diet. If you are used to any particular low-fat diet, you can stick to it in the future. If you use your own plan, be sure to check with your doctor or dietitian. At the initial stages of your program, you can count calories. When you learn to choose the right products, the need for this will disappear.

With a decrease in the amount of food consumed, the intake of vitamins into the body may decrease. And, naturally, you should eat a balanced food composition, rich in fruits and vegetables. You need to discuss the need for additional vitamins with your doctor.

Do I need to do physical exercises?

Yes. Physical activity is an important part of any weight loss program and is necessary for health promotion. This does not mean that you have to run several kilometers a day or practice in the gym.

Moreover, the weight control program recommends loads that will help you lose weight by consuming already accumulated fats, rather than through muscle tissue.

If I go in for sports and reduce the amount of calories consumed, what will Xenical receive me?
