Bodybuiders in the magazines. On roids?
I pick up an assortment of bodybuilding magazines from time to time, and I see they're full of huge guys promoting suppliments, diets, or work out routines. None of them ever promote steroids. But I look at these guys and say to myself, there's no way these guys are following only what they preach. I suppose some of these guys might be naturals, but I feel it's kinda false advertising when the others act as if they got big without the roids.

what are you talking about? Dexter Jackson is ripped because of muscletech nanovapor and hydroxycut! JK They use steroids AND work their asses off.

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.

No worries bud,
This is how a lot of bodybuilders get their money. Sponsorship is one of the main sources to keep the cash flow good.
A lot of bodybuilders are trainers but other than that where would they get their income? There isnt a rich guy walking around paying people to become monsters just because. Jay Cutler has to pay for the 6 pounds of fish he eats a day so he poses next to a bottle of muscletech 4000.
BUT, since you know the great secret. You are fine, you see right through the partial lies.

people dont know how to get big the good ol fashion way. lazy ppl who wanna juice. i can see juicing once a year but when ur workouts rely on it, u have a prob
10-15-2009, 11:53 PM
nah theyre all natural bro....just add an extra protein shake a day and youll like that too.
but in all seriousness yes they absolutley are on juice. would they look that good without it? no. but would they look that good without the blood, sweat and tears that goes along with intense training and diet hell? no. its a combo of both. but beleive these guys are still genetically gifted to look awesome without juice/gh. the gear just optimizes their size and cutness.
but sadly id have to say some guys def use it more than a few months a year. they pretty much have to if theyre doing 4-5 shows a year tho. it is what it is.
theyre professional athletes, they train just as or if not harder than other types of athletes. Sunday night football has juice heads in it too, but u cant take away their god given talent for it

Just look at Kevin Levrone's pictures and you'll have your answer.
He must've changed his diet up...
Dude's still in great shape though.
10-16-2009, 01:07 PM
I wish I could look half as good as his "now" picture lol
10-16-2009, 05:01 PM
10-16-2009, 06:16 PM
He looks much better in the now pic for sure.
10-16-2009, 08:52 PM

Modern professional bodybuilding seems to be more about how much muscle mass you can pack on than anything else. Some of these guys look ridiculous! I'm not saying they haven't worked for it, with the help of steroids, but c'mon... Really? lol
10-19-2009, 02:22 PM
yeah, Ronnie Coleman, when he was close to or over 300 lbs (cant remember which) for contest shape??? he looked too freaky to me... i mean.. i wanna be big... but jeeeeez...
10-19-2009, 02:30 PM
the freakiness is what people pay to see, if you don't want it, go to a natural show. bodybuilding isn't a mainstream sport so why go with what the average joe may think? these people aren't standing on stage saying 'look at me, i'm a picture of health!', they're there to show how far the human body can be pushed and to show how much muscle can be stuck onto a person's frame. you want to see freaky, look at the top female pros!

its crazy how many different roids they use. i heard somewhere that coleman has been on non stop for like 15 years lol
10-20-2009, 09:34 AM
I wonder if these bodybuilders actually use any of these supplements they promote. I would imagine they just do the roids and a lot of protein at most.

Most of them are on year-round (Levrone was a true freak; he only trained for maybe half of the year) and taper their dosages. It's insane to see some of the actual dosages used by some pre-contest. They probably have at least 10cc's of oil in them along with a handful of orals, GH, slin, synthol, etc.

It would seem like you would need to be on year round. Even if you go through a period of lower doses to keep the gains and be bigger then the next. Someone is always trying to out do you.
10-20-2009, 10:17 AM
lol imagine being 300lbs of muscle, you cant even run a flight of stairs without running out of gas. has anyone else seen "cost of redemption"?? hes in the car out of breath, cant dial the cellphone b/c fingers are too big, cant voice dial either because his voice is too high pitched hahahah

I took Havoc for almost four weeks until my hip muscle gave out. And that's just a mild steroid. I couldn't imagine continuing all year round, year after year. Besides, the gains will be lost once you get off. I maintained most of my weight, but I did lose that "pumped" look after a few weeks.
10-20-2009, 05:41 PM
They our always pumped up. I wish the Muscle Tech did what it said.I bought the hype a few years back when I was new. I would be the biggest bodybuilder ever. Never happened.

I clicked on this thread because I actually saw a question mark at the end of the thread title.

You have to specifically pic up a "natural bodybuilding" magazine to find guys who don't juice. Men's fitness is pretty much full of normal guys, men's health as well but muscle and fitness, flex, muscle mag all roids.
What I always wonder is even if your lifting and pushing large amounts of weight the tendons, ligaments and all the soft tissue in the joints can only take so much. The body is designed to build mass at a certain rate so it prevents injury and the joint can support the gains. Sometimes on waxy maize and creatine I have very little lactic burn and I keep going and I stop only cause of the weight I feel in my joint. All these guys must have constant chronic pain and injuries. They must all be on oxy as well. There's no way they do it smart. They wanna be the best so they will take short cuts.
ôLord, whom shall we go away to? You have sayings of everlasting life"- John 6:68
WHAT has science offered?
10-20-2009, 10:00 PM
knew a guy who got addicted to oxy's because of the amount of pain he was in from lifting/. hes been out of the gym for YEARS no one knows where he went. so i wouldnt doubt some do that. he truly was a monster tho

The craziest thing, is that there are no current published studies on the long term use of steriods and health issues, pro or con, at least thats what I saw on real sports, you can look it up on you tube...of course I don't know much about AAS, being as I don't use them
