Steroids tend to in­crease the size of the mus­cles around the shoul­der joints. That means lats, traps, pecs and del­toids. There’s even a lingo for this bulk­i­ness: it’s called be­ing ‘yoked’.

DAMNED SPOTS

Steroids typ­i­cally in­duce acne – more speci‹ically, bacne – be­cause they cause hor­monal changes, which lead the body to pro­mote a build-up of se­bum in the skin. A sud­den break-out on the shoul­ders or up­per back is a pos­si­ble red ‹lag.

INTO THE DEEP

Watch out for a sud­den change of voice. An­abol­i­can­dro­genic steroids (AAS) thicken your vo­cal chords, deep­en­ing the voice. The mus­cles around the jaw also be­come more de‹ined.

KING OF THE SWINGERS

Mood swings, ex­treme ir­ri­tabil­ity, ap­petite shifts, ner­vous­ness and in­som­nia are all com­mon. Look out for a sud­den change in tem­per­a­ment.
