Aas Positively Effect

AAS have a positive effect upon fat distribution and storage. There are 3 reasons for this. The first reason is that AAS reduce the amount of insulin released in response to nutrient intake and improved insulin sensitivity. This is in part due to an improved CP synthesis rate and other metabolic factors resulting in an athlete's muscle cells becoming better able to absorb nutrients such as carbohydrates in the form of glucose and glycogen and proteins in the form of amino acids. Insulin is anti-catabolic and anabolic. Great for muscle cells, but it also causes the conversion of glucose into glycerol and then into triglycerides. Insulin can therefore increase fat stores and growth of fat cells. A decrease in insulin release and an increase in insulin sensitivity means better utilization of nutrients for muscle growth.

The second reason AAS effect fat is because testosterone blocks the activity of a fat-synthesizing hormone called lipoprotein lipase. Since lipoprotein lipase is blocked, less can be produced and stored. GH also has this effect.

The third way testosterone affects fat synthesis is not positive. When testosterone levels are elevated, more is converted into estrogens by way of the conversion enzyme aromatase. This is called aromatization, an important word to understand before reading the rest of this book! Estrogen in turn increases female pattern fat deposits and suppresses HPTA function. Atleast estrogen can increase GH production.
