چکیده
Introduction: The use of anabolic-androgenic steroids (AASs) by athletes has become a widespread problem in the developing countries. However, predisposing risk factors for AAS initiation among athletes are not well known. This study aimed to investigate the roles of psychosocial and demographic factors associated with AAS use among Iranian male bodybuilders. Material and Methods: This descriptive-analytical study was carried out on 280 male bodybuilders of Hamadan recruited through a multistage sampling method in 2016. The data gathering tool consisted of a self-administered questionnaire with questions about anabolic-androgenic steroid use and demographic, social and psychological variables. Data were analyzed with SPSS-16 software using Chi-square, independent T-test and logistic regression methods. Results: A number of 76 (27.1%) subjects were AAS user. According to the results, attitude and self-efficacy were associated with AAS use (P<0.05). The result obtained from logistic regression analysis revealed that tobacco smoking, alcohol consumption, supplement use, having AAS user coach, and having AAS user friends were significant predicting factors for AAS user among male bodybuilders (P<0.05). Conclusions: AAS use is common among male bodybuilders in Iran. Personal and psychosocial correlates of AAS use identified in this study may be helpful for the development of preventive interventions
