    I am doing exercise since last 2 years regularly. At first, I was concerned about fat loose. So I have done a lot of intense workout. But now I am interested about bodybuilding and want to go to many events. So I want to know that can it be possible for me without adding any steroid? I have read about various side effects of steroid. Also I have another profession. Under this situation, I want to know whether I can carry my exercise in natural bodybuilding and participate in events.
