At Project Swole we don’t care for steroids, we don’t promote them and we don’t recommend using them. However, we realize some folks are going to use them anyway, and we DO support health. Therefore, every once in a while when we receive reader questions about a steroid stack, we get motivated to publish a post about using steroids as safely as possible, and one of the biggest factors of a safe cycle, is PCT – post cycle therapy. That being said, here are our tips for safely coming off your steroid cycle to maintain the best health possible.
So lets you have come to your decision and you are considering risking it. You made the choice that completing a course of anabolic steroid is what you needed. You got all the information you know from the supplier in the gym. You know how they are taken and how long you should do it. At least you think you know. It’s what you don’t know about coming off the cycle that could destroy your results and impact your health. (more…)
The hidden endocrine disruptors found in plastics
2011 was a momentous year for global awareness in terms of the harmful effects of plastic on human health. Following a number of reports from national health and safety agencies, the European Commission outright banned the use of BPA in the manufacture of bottles intended for baby feeding. The evidence for the harmfulness of this substance, particularly in infants, became simply indisputable. Not one year passed and the U.S. also took major steps towards the elimination of BPA. We’ve been using plastic materials for selling and storing our food for quite some time now, which makes the legal action all the more worrisome. It begs the question: just how did we get to a place where we have to ban manufacturers from using toxic substances in their products?
Bisphenol A (or BPA, for short) is a compound widely used in the production of resins and plastic materials. It’s been around ever since the 1950s and, granted, it is a blessing for construction. In terms of chemical importance, BPA is vital to obtaining hard, yet flexible polycarbonate plastic products. In terms of human consumption, however, its effects range from slightly detrimental to outright poisonous, especially in young children and elderly individuals. BPA’s impact on human hormones can yield anything from diabetes, developmental issues, heart disease, genital abnormalities, obesity and, unsurprisingly, infertility.
We all know that going to the gym not only makes you feel better, it makes you look better too. Even if you don’t have a chiseled 6-pack, massive guns, or lady-swooning glutes being a gym goer can give you a more shapely body, higher energy and mood levels, and help you be enjoy life to the fullest.
But there’s another aspect of being fit and healthy that’s not discussed often:
The scent of your natural pheromones (or your natural body odor), can actually become more attractive to the opposite sex.
If you don’t know what they are, or you imagine sleazy internet ads promising you they’re the secret to attracting gorgeous women… then you’ll probably roll your eyes. But on a scientific level, it actually makes sense.
What are Pheromones?
First of all, the word “pheromone” actually comes from the word “pherein” – which means “to carry”.
The second part, “mones” is from the word hormon(e).
As you already know by now, hormones (e.g. testosterone), are responsible for pretty much all the important functions of the human body… from regulating sleep, our testosterone balance, and even our moods.
Of particular interest is testosterone, which is an androgen, and typically what pheromones are derived from.
The most interesting part about all this, is that pheromones are actually derivatives of testosterone. And because they are released in sweat, there are steps you can take to actually make your pheromones all the more “attractive” – especially to women. (more…)
Testosterone is popularly referred as an epitome of manhood, that doesn’t mean testosterone isn’t found in women. It’s just that testosterone is found in large quantity in men, while it’s in trace quantity in women. You might be aware of the fact that testosterone plays a vital role in enhancing your sex drive and muscle building, no wonder why most men have greater muscle mass than women.
It’s almost mythical to learn the true power of testosterone and its ability to burn body fat and boost your muscles. Testosterone also comes in handy to increase your libido, sleep, mood, and your quality of life. However, testosterone declines in most men after they hit 30 years, which isn’t good for health.
In many cases it becomes an issue and leads to testosterone replacement therapy, which some studies claim might also not be good for health. Sometimes we need to try to find ways to naturally enhance the testosterone level in the body.
Here’s a list of 7 ways to increase your testosterone naturally:

“I have heard that too much caffeine can be detrimental to muscle growth because of its tendency to increase cortisol which has catabolic effects. That being said, it also stimulates testosterone production, so its actual effects are a little unclear. Here’s a little medical study I found on the web to back it up:
Just curious if you’ve heard anything along these lines and I’m interested to hear your take on it.”
When you’re trying to make the most out of your body (as you only ever get one!), there’s a lot of different stuff that gets thrown into the mix. You have to watch out for your chemical imbalances, as well as anything else that could throw you off of your normal routine.
So, What Exactly IS Testosterone?
Testosterone is a chemical messenger that takes its place amongst other androgens – it’s also the primary sex hormone in males on this planet. It’s produced primarily through the Leydig cells, which are located in the testicles of men (although women do also produce this hormone in their ovaries), a small amount is produced in the adrenal glands as well.
Testosterone is there to help sway the two different genders into their sexual development phases properly; it adds to the aspect of desire, as well as producing sperm. Testosterone has many other functions, and even professional athletes are using it to get an edge above the competition; but why is that exactly? (more…)
For years athletes, movie stars, and gym rats have been falling in love with performance enhancing products to get stronger, faster, or bigger. Bodybuilders in particular love the kinds of results that these products provide them with but there are some serious drawbacks to prohormones, which usually forces people to turn to real anabolic steroids.
Most people who want to build serious muscle mass often resort to using such oral or injectable steroid products as testosterone, trenbolone, anadrol, anavar, winstrol etc. If you’re interested cycling these types of substances, you’re going to want to finish this article.

We hear about it all the time in commercials for “Low-T”. We certainly have read about it many times in the context of fitness articles, considering we are always reading fitness articles. I am talking about Testosterone. Something that affects each of us deep to our core, forms the foundation of our health and makes us…. well, Men!

What’s The Deal With Testosterone?
Testosterone, what is it? I mean, we know what it is, but… what, IS it? Let’s get scientific here for a moment. Testosterone is a steroid hormone. Hold on, before we go on… The term steroid here is referring to natural hormones produced in the body. These are the things that help control metabolism, inflammation, immune system, and sexual characteristics. Ok, now back to where we left off.
This article will cover the following key points: correlations between behavior and testosterone, the psychological effects on the human mind, the internal and external changes in both men and women, a series of myths and reality facts and of course, a series of conclusions.
This will not be a post designed to sell any supplements. My purpose is not to defend steroids or testosterone boosters, not to bash them. These are the facts. This is the truth.
Testosterone and Behavior
In terms of behavior, there are some who believe high testosterone levels can cause aggressiveness and irrationality. But the truth is that, like any other hormone found in the human body, it influences our brain activity. This particular hormone intensifies the brain activity and the adrenaline levels in our body, so we become more and more agitated and we lose track of our peaceful calm side.
