Thread: Dbol+exercise+your heart

BACKGROUND: Concomitant application of anabolic -androgenic steroids and physical exercise can induce cardiac hypertrophy. These experiments investigate the still unknown response of the cardiac myocytes and capillaries to the combined influence of various anabolic steroids and muscular exercise. METHODS: Female SPF-NMRI mice were divided into the following groups: a) sedentary control, b) exercise (treadmill running); c) sedentary receiving Dianabol ; d) exercise + Dianabol; e) exercise + Oral-Turinabol . After 3 and 6 weeks the left ventricular papillary muscles were studied morphometrically. Evaluated variables: minimal myocyte diameter, number of capillaries around a single myocyte, capillary density and intercapillary distance. RESULTS: Only the anabolic steroids + exercise groups showed a mild myocyte hypertrophy. In contrast, only exercise alone caused a significant increase of the capillary density after both experimental periods; e.g. capillary density after 6 weeks (capillaries/mm2, mean values +/- standard deviation, p < 0.05): control (4,272 +/- 287), exercise (5411 +/- 755), dianabol (4,004 +/- 333), dianabol + exercise (4,076 +/- 403), oral-turinabol + exercise (4,053 +/- 306). Moreover, unlike all other regimens, only exercise alone shortened the intercapillary distance. Finally, exercise without drugs induced the greatest increase in the number of capillaries around a single myocyte. CONCLUSIONS: Anabolic steroids combined with exercise: 1) induce mild hypertrophy of the cardiac myocytes, 2) impair the cardiac microvascular adaptation to physical conditioning. The microvascular impairment may cause a detrimental alteration of the myocardial oxygen supply, especially during muscular exercise.

hypertrophy = expansion; increase [more] of size; enlargement, extension, augmentation; amplification, ampliation
myocardial = myocardium = The muscular tissue of the heart.
myocytes = the unit cell of the muscle tissue of the heart
They conclude that IN MICE, dbol + exercies induces
1)enlargement of the muscle cells around your heart
2)impaired vasculature around the heart that causes a decrease in oxygen supplied there (especially during exercise)
These two findings are interesting and important to note ... basically they are telling you they found that dbol+exercise was bad for your heart in many ways. Those noted above being the most specific.

Wont stop me from eating them in an up coming cycle... just thought you might find it interesting.
