    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)

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

  7. 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.

    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.

  9. 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."

  10. 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.

  11. 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

  12. 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
