I had a prednisone injection today (for medical issue unrelated to exercising) and I'm wondering if that would have any effect on my weight training over the next month or so. According to the doc, the steroid stays active in the body for up to 3 months with an injection. Might be a good time for me to try to push myself a little harder on the weight increases.........

It depends. Is the a one time injection or will you inject daily, every other day? Anyway, you may get some bloat but that depends on the steroid.

one time. Have some recurring sinus issues which the doc hopes will be helped by a steroid boost.

The steroid doesn't sound anabolic (the one that builds muscle, not all steroids build muscle)

I've done rounds of oral prednisone before and the insomnia was a pain. No issues with depression though.

^If anyone injects their biceps with steroids they are asking for trouble. Anabolic steroids are intramuscular, you need a much "meatier" area. There is a reason your doctor gives you shots in your butt or shoulder.

damn, i get to deal with the insomnia, the pain in the ass (yes, the shot freaking hurts) and don't even get big bulky muscles as a payoff. And walking is actually painful right now from the stinking shot. Right in the muscle with a nice big needle.

Yeah OP, sorry, most doctors don't give out anabolics for non muscle related issues.

But hey if you want to take your training to the next level, and add something that is almost as strong as steroids, try eating. Food is one of the most legal and safest anabolics out there. Learn how to eat smart and you can get big on your own.

DAA is some good stuff

Prednazone isn't an anabolic steroid, you'll notice no difference in your lifting.
