Effects of methandienone on the performance and body composition of men undergoing athletic training.
TLDR
Body weight, potassium and nitrogen, muscle size, and leg performance and strength increased significantly during training on the drug, but not during the placebo period, suggesting that the weight gain was not only intracellular fluid.
Effects of Androgenic-Anabolic Steroids in Athletes
TLDR
Although AAS administration may affect erythropoiesis and blood haemoglobin concentrations, no effect on endurance performance was observed and little data about the effects of AAS on metabolic responses during exercise training and recovery are available and, therefore, do not allow firm conclusions.
Effects of anabolic-androgenic steroids on muscular strength.
TLDR
No evidence was found to support enhanced muscle strength with steroid use in eight studies in untrained normal volunteers, and anabolic steroids may slightly enhance muscle strength in previously trained athletes.
Anabolic-Androgenic Steroid Administration Causes Hypertrophy of Immobilized and Nonimmobilized Skeletal Muscle in a Sedentary Rabbit Model
TLDR
The results are contrary to previously accepted views that anabolic-androgenic steroid use leads to muscle hypertrophy only in conjunction with strength training and add to the growing evidence thatanabolic- androgenic steroids can produce significant skeletal musclehypertrophy in sedentary populations.
Biochemistry and physiology of anabolic androgenic steroids doping.
TLDR
Animal and human investigations support the hypothesis that the administration of AASs might increase lean body mass, muscle mass, and maximal voluntary strength especially in men, so that they would represent an appealing form of doping for increasing power capacity, sustaining intensive training periods and, last but not least, as a cosmetic muscle makeover.
Effects of testosterone propionate and nandrolone decanoate on body composition and lipoprotein concentrations in the rat
TLDR
The treatment protocol used may serve as a model to further investigate the mechanisms underlying the effects of AAS and changes in lipoprotein profiles in female testosterone rats over the treatment period indicated a significant decrease in high‐density lipoproteins (HDL) compared to peanut oil‐treated animals.
Anabolic steroids in athletics: How well do they work and how dangerous are they?

TLDR
There is no substantial evidence to support the use of anabolic steroids for improving aerobic work capacity and most persons will gain an average of 2.2 kg of lean body weight during steroid administration but that there exist great individual differences in strength changes induced by steroids.

Effect of an anabolic steroid on physical performance of young men.
TLDR
The performance of 47 men was measured during a 16-week study and it was found that men who received placebos during the study had lower testosterone levels than those who received an anabolic steroid.
