Bodybuiders in the magazines. On roids?

Page 3 of 3 First 123

  1. Parents are supose to to be responsible for the kids, you insenuating that parents are perfect is well.....foolish. The idea that certain groups of people are perfect would just the same. The way you're making it seem tho that no one else is to blame but mags and pro-bodybuilders.....dont you think there's more to it then that, c'mon now......thats like over weight people blaming mcdonalds because they're fat and didnt give them all the critical info on how they're supose to eat before they ordered their food.

    A dream? Lol. Most of these guys are drug addicts. How do you think some of these guys pay for their drugs? Do you really want to know?

    I agree. People need to smarten up and take some initiative and inform themselves, especially before putting something in their body, whether it be a big mac or 400mg testosterone. You can't blame marketers for not disclosing every detail about their products. They wanna make a buck and if someone is gullible enough to buy into it, then it's on them. Supplement companies are no different. If you really wanna know if Nano Vapor will make you look like the guy in the ad, then inform yourself with advice and answers from credible sources (who will tell you hell no), don't just believe the hype. Kids are always the centerpiece for argument, whether it's movies, music, etc.. There are things kids have no business watching, listening to, or doing, and whoever is responsible for them should be responsible for creating a filter or barrier between the kid and the source.
    Suffer now.. and live like a champion later.

  4. People have been given 100's of years to smarten up.. what have we accomplished? LOL Thanks to advances is science sure our children may be able to prolong death and live to 100 but that won't stop them from trying to die earlier!

    Everyone is certainly entitled to their opinions and I respect that. Arguing about which is right is futile. However I can't get over the fact that some of you are effectively taking the position that you think it is acceptable for businesses to lie to and deceive their customers. Picture the economy in the absence of consumer protection laws:

    Consumer: 'I just dropped $35k on this new car and it doesn't work.'
    Carmaker: ' Oh well, sucks to be you, should have had an engineering team look it over. Next!'

    If that doesn't paint a picture for you then imagine living in one of those corrupt, third world countries like Nigeria.

    Anyhow we are lucky enough that most industries are kept fairly honest. However the fitness, BB, and nutrition industry is one that is constantly pushing the envelope on ethics.

    One last comment; it might seem silly but think about it for a minute. You say that people need to smarten up. The problem is that there is no cure for stupidity. Some people just don't know any better, never have and never will.

    It's Darwinism. Even modern medicine can't prevent people with less intelligence from killing themselves off. I can't see myself feeling sympathetic for those who don't take precautions to salvage their health, even if something dangerous is put in front of their face with no explaination of what it can do to them. But bb mags don't encourage AAS use blatantly. It's inferred by the reader that those cats are juiced and taken upon them to go find out what steroids are, how to get them, and how to use them.

    Hell yea! Lift like a beast for your whole life and get paid to do it?? Where do I sign!? And for all of you who think "oh these pro's just take roids and get huge, anyone could do it and they're lazy." I'd just like to say they probably know more about sacrifice, dedication, and passion than you ever will. With artificial help or not.

    you might be saying this now, but when you wake up at 40 something and your health is gone to $hit..i know you would regret the overjuicing. just like rockstars whos liver/kidneys give out from partying all their life, bodybuilders probably hit a serious wall

    "Overjuicing" is the key word. The pros abuse the stuff, yes. They rely on it to keep their jobs. Sacrifice their health to impress spectators and get paid. If someone uses AAS perpetually and doesn't make a living off of it, they are a fool.

    Yea I feel ya, but still... It'd be freaking schaawweeet! Though I'd probably look into the natty route and maybe live a couple more decades.

    Arny seems like he's doing pretty good though, and that was back in the day when even doctors didn't really know what exactly they were doing... Just a thought...

    Remember, these are the top guys who are taking enough juice to pump a bull. They are the exception not the rule. You make a valid point though, if you are pushing the limits of what the body can take in terms of foreign substances in the system and you aren't being paid for it then that's a problem.

    Also, anyone who really believes that taking muscletech products will make them massive wouldn't be such a loss to the gene pool

    So true. Some people are incredibly naive when it comes to marketing. I love that scene in "Bigger, Stronger, Faster" where they talk about how easy it is to make an "ad."

    That's a movie everybody interested in bodybuilding should watch.

    "www .youtube.com/watch?v=BfTnVCh0dKE" - Bigger Stronger Faster clip
    (around 6:20 they get to the part about advertising)

    That's a great clip. Sums up everything I have been trying to say. Reps!

  16. thats what happens when you get off the juice.... i know it sucks

  17. Here is something about magazines. Yes they are all on juice and those workout "routines" are not ones they really do. I got this from a pro I know. If they put thier real routines in there then they would not have the percieved edge on the competition.

  18. Quote Originally Posted by capnsavem View Post

    these guys that have their pro cards, man they sacrifice so much and work so damn hard... the only possible way to get that big AND shredded is to run cycles of you-name-it... but i'd venture to guess most of them run them as safe as possible and dont "abuse" them for the most part... i hope

    i'm not condoning the use of steroids, and i would never touch the stuff, but i commend these guys on their drive and work ethic to get where they are.
    I don't think so. Most of the guys I know who compete seriously are on year round.

  19. I read this article way back when about Matarazzo and i was astonished. I mean, i knew what all was going on in the world of bodybuilding.. but he paints a grotesque picture.

    findarticles . com/p/articles/mi_m0KFY/is_5_23/ai_n14706837/

    here's an little bit:

    "Worst were the chemicals. I have so many memories of being alone in a hotel room the week, five days or two days before a contest, and doing unspeakable things to my body--steroids, growth hormones, diuretics--anything and everything that we as bodybuilders do to achieve a certain look."

  20. Matarazzo is a sick man these days too because of it. He has had open heart surgery and had another whopping MI (myocardial infarction=heart attack) a few years later. He now trys to teach people to drop the vanity and worry about total body health and not just get huge at all costs.

  21. lol he says at one point he was eating 5-7 pounds of red meat a day, with no vegetables. you can tell he was on all sorts of chemicals, the physique just doesnt look normal. not that any BB's body is normal looking but his is just super dense and extra wide lol

  22. steroids are a tool, they still have to train and diet their asses off to look like that...but yes 20 inch arms = steroids haha
