steroids do not double the size of your head. weight gain makes your head bigger. most steroids make it easier to work out and decrease recovery time. if you work out to add bulk, your head will grow in size as you gain more weight through muscle mass (with or without steroids, mind you). if you work out to add tone and endurance, your head won't balloon (with or without steroids).

looking at the size of someone's head as a way to decide wether or not that person is on steroids is naive.

cyclists, track stars... they use steroids, but they work out not to add mass, rather to add endurance. thus you don't see a cyclists riding around with a bobble head. but they're still juicing. hitters want mass to hit the ball further... soccer players do not neccesarily want to be slower, they'd take steroids more along the ways that cyclists and track stars do.

Actually, one of the side effects of excessive human growth hormone use is acromegaly - the increase of the thickness of certain bones like in the hands and feet. I don't know if they head growth is as well documented as the hand and feet enlargement, but there is evidence backing it up. I've never heard of anyone's head enlarging due to the type of workouts they do though. Your head should never enlarge once you've fully matured unless there is some pathological process going on.

yes... but HGH is not a steroid.



i'm not saying the actuall skull growing... but the appearance of one's head growing due to increased mass, deffinetly. or perhaps jordan took steroids who knows for sure...

one person i know who hasn't taken steroids yet who's head has grown in size...



chalk it up to too many performance debilitating pints of guinness

It may not be a steroid in the chemical since, but it is a steroid in what it does. It's probably more effective than any anabolic steroid could ever be.
