Viagra for Bodybuilding

A 27 year old man discovered another benefit of Cialis, a drug used for erectile dysfunction. He discovered it last year when he started taking it to prevent erectile dysfunction because he believed that the use of steroids could cause the condition. He took the 10mg dosage with some anabolic steroids and noticed a huge progress in his body building quest. This is definitely why some people have been taking the drug before workouts.

Due to what he noticed, he decided to make Cialis a part of his preparation for workouts on a daily basis although he reduced the dosage to 5mg. Now he takes it an hour before his workouts. In addition to the fast results he saw in his body building efforts, he also gets stronger and lasting erection.

Taking Viagra to aid bodybuilding workouts is gradually gaining traction and becoming popular and this may be because some people are beginning to see other positive effects of the drug. This is exactly what the man mentioned above witnessed. Remember, Viagra was formulated for treating chest pain by improving its blood flow. The major cause of chest pain is when there is reduced blood flow from the heart to it. Viagra widens the blood vessels and this allows more blood to flow to the chest, thereby easing the pain. More blood will flow to and from the heart and all other organs.

The same way, Sildenafil or Viagra improves the blood flow to the penis and give stronger and lasting erection. It is the same improved blood flow that makes athletes and body builders take it. From all these, it is clear that the drug improves blood flow in all parts of the body and not only towards the penis. It is just that the improved blood flow to the penis is noticed more because of the erection that comes with it.

Here are some other reasons Viagra might be more than just an ED drug. It has been proved by several studies that sildenafil is beneficial to high-altitude athletics so a lot of athletes take it before their performance. Fortunately, it does not have any of the banned substances so athletes are free to take it. Long distance runners and cyclists can also benefit from the drug because it increases the supply of oxygen to their muscles.

Another study carried out in 2013 proved that sildenafil has the ability to reduce or prevent muscle fatigue and promote protein synthesis in the body. This is why it helps to improve skeletal muscle functions. While a particular study showed that low dosage of Viagra could help you gain huge mass of muscles fast, you cannot really depend on the study because only very small number of volunteers were used. So, the study is inconclusive. More study needs to be carried out either to confirm or to negate what the small study revealed.

Possible side effects of Viagra

When considering the positive sides of the drug, it is also important to consider its side effects too. Some of the possible side effects of Viagra or Sildenafil are priapism, low blood pressure, and all the heart conditions that may be caused by low blood pressure. For people who don’t know what priapism is, it is either a painful erection or an erection that lasts longer than 4 hours. It is needless to say that erection becomes a problem when it lasts longer than 4 hours. The law of diminishing returns will set in at that point. So, it may not be a smart idea to take Viagra before hitting the gym.

The prices of the drug keep going down and there seems to be an increase in the general intake of the drug by men who are not even suffering from ED. These two will continue to put the drug in high demand. Although Viagra has other benefits apart from boosting sexual performance, it is not advisable to use the drug for any other reason apart from erectile dysfunction.

Even though the 27-year old man that took Cialis before his workouts was able to build his body successfully, he does not think it is a good idea to include Cialis, Viagra, or other ED drug for his body building quest. According to him, taking ED drug made it more difficult for him to achieve his aim.
