Athletes And Anabolicandrogenic Steroids

Anabolic-androgenic steroids are pharmacological agents that are structured similarly to testosterone (103,104). They have anabolic-androgenic actions like testosterone; however, these agents have been chemically modified to enhance their anabolic actions. Athletes use anabolic-androgenic steroids to facilitate physiological development beyond that achieved with exercise training alone (e.g., increased body weight;

muscular strength, power, and speed; or endurance) (103,104). These agents are used by athletes involved in many sports. However, sports such as track and field (mostly in the throwing events), weight lifting, bodybuilding, and football report the highest prevalence of use (104-106). For the remainder of the discussion, anabolic-androgenic steroids will be referred to as anabolic steroids.
