What’s up ? This is THE stephane ANDRE. With my training, I’m interested in biomechanics to avoid injuries. I read « Sport Medicine Media Guide » and I learned some good stuff.

We regularly read in news articles, the use of anabolic steroids or performance enhancing drugs by elite athlete. But you should know that these dangerous drugs are more and more used by children in college, high-school and middle school.

What

Anabolic steroids are synthetic derivatives of testosterone. Testosterone is a male sex hormone. Steroids help to create new proteins to increase the size and strength of muscles. The body is already doing this process naturally but steroids increase the activity of this normal process. Find performance enhancing drugs in communities, gyms or internet is easy.

Steroids are consumed orally or by injection. Anabolic steroids in themselves aren’t effective. However, when they’re used at the same time with a strength training, they increase the strength in an impressive way.

Side effects

Performance enhancing drugs allow an athlete to have bigger and more powerful muscles, but users may have deadly health problems. Performance enhancing drugs have several side effects that continue to work even after you stop using them. Users are also more likely to have risky behaviors such as having unsafe sex or taking illegal drugs.

Symptoms of use of anabolic steroids are :

  • Acne (often severe) visible on the face and back

  • Severe mood change such as extreme aggression or suicidal behavior

  • Premature balding, breast enlargement (gynecomastia), irreversible shrinking of testicles in boys.

  • Deeper voice, shrinking breast and clitoral enlargement in girls

  • Dangerous enlargement of the heart that can increase bad cholesterol and blood pressure.

  • Irreversible liver damage

  • In children, premature closure of the growth plates, stopping normal growth of bones.

A reason to take anabolic steroids

Anabolic steroids may be advisable for people who have lost testicular function like men with a testicular tumor. They’re also advised in some type of anemia to stimulate the bone morrow.

Prevent

The true is the problems of performance enhancing drugs aren’t solely related to elite athletes. Children are also exposed to this every day. Ask kids what they know about these drugs. Ask them if they know anyone in their school class who uses these drugs. Ask them if they know the dangers of these drugs. If you think that your children or children in your family might be experiencing these drugs, talk to your doctor.

It’s also important to talk to coaches and ask them if leagues or schools require annual physical exams for athletes. A physical examination by a doctor can detect the use of performance enhancing drugs in athletes (doping test). Ask coaches if any of their athletes have experienced performance enhancing drugs.

Stats

As many as four 4 American children and teens are using performance enhancing drugs such as anabolic steroids.

Have A Little Or A Big Audience

audience big small

I watched an Olivier Roland’s video  and there is good stuff.

Is better to target a large audience ou a smaller audience but more educated ? Good question.

Audience size

audience size type

Often people tell me to put more humor in my articles because it would touch more people. It’s not a bad idea to put more humor but I don’t want to become a comic. I don’t care and I don’t have the talent to do this. My blog is about bodybuilding, weights training and I show to all who want to see how I develop my body and my blog by providing advice. I know I will touch a smaller audience than if I do something more popular or pure entertainment.

I also know that among th people who read me, there are many who will never apply my advice or not much. Because there is always an abyss between education and action. I know where I’m going by doing this and I estimate that 5 % of people who read me apply what I share and improve their lifestyle. Most other say : « Wow, it’s interesting ! » and after they forgot.

It doesn’t matter if you target a smaller audience than the number of people who are connected on internet. What is important is that you connect with people who are compatible with your mission. My mission is to help people to have a better muscular body without supplements and to create a company with a blog. I lot of people don’t like this message and I’m OK with this. I’m fighting for the small minority who apply my advice and improve their lifestyle.

I know this small minority of my audience can influence people around them to have a better lifestyle regardless of country and it makes me happy.

Elite audience

If you want touch a big audience, it’s good too, you can mix humor and education but can you offer a content/product that attracts the elite of your audience ? Something that can interest extraordinary people of your audience. Extraoridinary people of your audience can be people who have accomplished a lot of things, people very educated or luminaries. Offer something to attract your hiddent audience.

Your hidden audience will not appear because they don’t have a truly reason to do it. The reason why they will appear, it’s because you will offer them something that interests them. A high-end service or a specific product.

Ask yourself : « What can I offer to my elite of my audience and how can I do ? ». Because it’s worth it for your content and your product/service to offer something for your elite of your audience.
