No way! Show me the science!
In one study, researchers recruited 43 resistance-trained men between the ages of 19 and 40 who had never taken steroids. (1)

The men were divided into four groups:

A no-lifting group who received a placebo (fake testosterone injections).
A no-lifting group that received real testosterone.
A lifting group who got placebo injections.
A lifting group who got testosterone injections.
The two groups that received the real drug injected 600 mg of testosterone enanthate per week for 10 weeks. Keep in mind, for doctor-prescribed replacement therapy, men normally take 100 mg per week, sometimes up to 200 mg. Taking 600 mg per week put the participants nicely into the “steroid user” category.

The result? Then men who took testosterone and NEVER lifted a weight added 10% more muscle mass.

Of course, those who took testosterone and trained did gain more – 14% muscle mass. But a 10% gain without stepping foot into a gym? Yeah, supraphysiologic doses of testosterone can do that.

What about the placebo group who lifted weights? They added 3.5% muscle mass. Yes, that means the non-lifting group which injected T gained more muscle than the natural lifters during the 10-week study.

The no-lifting T-takers also saw measurable size gains in their triceps and quadriceps.
