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

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.

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

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...

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, 10:34 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.
