To understand anabolics, we must first understand the cellular development of muscle. Often muscle development is simplified to “protein synthesis”, but there are many complex changes that occur in the body. The body does more than just synthesize protein from amino acids. “Satellite cells” play a very important role in muscle development. These cells are normally responsible for healing muscles when they are injured or traumatized. These cells, located in the fiber next to the damaged muscle cell, divide and multiply to form muscle tissue.
This fast-forming tissue shares the cell nucleus with the damaged area and allows it to form a more robust structure. The burning sensation that occurs in the muscles in every repeated movement during training in people who do sports is an effect caused by muscle damage. Many hormones and growth factors affect the so-called anabolic chain. The agents used in these phases attach to the muscle tissue or allow the secretion of the necessary substances, respectively.
