  1. For the nattys on this forum. Do gear users annoy you?


    You work hard and everything you have gained has come with hard work and your bodies natural genetics. Then you see people who are genetically not as good as you resorting to gear to make the same gains. Does this annoy you?


  2. No. People are still grinding it out and I try hard to only compare myself to myself from yesterday and use others as inspiration.

    Fixed it for you bro

  4. Yes but you know you did it naturally and they had to resort to drugs. I find the latter pretty ****in stupid to be honest. Especially when they do not nor have aspirations to compete.

    Why would a person take gear if they just lift for fun? Most idiotic ****in thing I have seen. Get on stage if you want to use it. What’s really idiotic are 17 and 18 year olds using gear.

    Looks, confidence, motivation, trying to better ones self. Vanity even, who cares? People make their own choices let them do what they do and enjoy your life. Itís not about having to resort to drugs, people who just start roids and donít have any training ethics or motivation then yeah I guess but you just sounds bitter man haha

  7. I agree with the young age thing totally

    The reasons are manifold.
    I started at almost 50 yo. I just felt I don't have the time anymore to see changes. For an old fugger to see progress, it takes way longer -and time was running out. Going on TRT was a welcome excuse to cruising and blasting, I admit.
    Life is fair it's your expectations that aren't.

  9. Not at all they chose to take the step and I could if I wanted to. You canít just use gear and get huge without eating right and working hard.

    I ask the same question about why people waste money and time on fishing, most idiotic ****in thing i have seen.

  11. yeah, you're making a stupid point by saying "why risk it for a hobby"... people risk far more every. single. day. for their favorite hobbies and pastimes... skydiving? could kill you day 1.
    any extreme sport (motox, skateboarding, bmx, etc etc)? broken neck, bones, etc any day.

    drive today? yep, could have died.

    saying steroids are stupid becuase they're not YOUR hobby is ignorant. I'm 100% sure you've done many things in your life more dangerous than a recreational drug that actually CAN and IS used safely - see TRT and any other legit medical use for these same drugs.

  12. No it doesnít bother me in the least. I have a decent frame to build on and it presents a challenge. I donít want to use something like that when I could easily just work a little harder and eat a little better and see results. I donít believe in the idea that people plateau and then figure oh well I might as well try AAs. Thereís always something missing that unlocks potential. Besides most guys running gear still arenít as lucky or strong so I donít feel like Iím missing much.

    All said however I have begun my research and programming of sorts for the day if I ever do venture to the dark side.

  13. No offense OP, but judging from some of your posts and threads, you seem like you worry about others too much. Just worry about yourself. Unless you are competing in a natural bodybuilding show or powerlifting event, why worry if someone uses or not.

  14. What bothers me is the stigma that people use gear is they just take it and get huge. You have to be on point with your diet and training just like someone who is natty. Will you get more gains by using gear? Absolutely... but that doesn't mean you pin then hit the couch and chips for 12 weeks. You still have to work your ass off. I personally don't care if you use gear or you don't... just train your ass off eat like you should and don't worry about the guy next to you and what he's doing...

    Doing it for a plastic trophy is even dumber IMO. Lol The chances of being the next Phil Heath is 1 in a million. Just showing the other side. Really a few cycles is not a big deal. Natural or not is just a decision one makes. Moderation is the key I guess. Same for alcohol or anything else.

    And even if you become Phil Heath you can still walk down the street without people knowing who you are. People like Michael Jordan could never do that. 200 grand for winning the Olympia. Compared to making that multiple times a year in other sports. The prize money in bodybuilding is not good. I believe the winner of men’s physique pays 20 grand.

  17. It used to bother me, so I hopped on a cycle and found that my naivety was the lack of knowledge, wisdom and experience. Now I truly respect the bodybuilders and athletes. One day you will come to a realization and get a clearer nonbiased opinion at the matter. For now you only know one side.

  18. What annoys me are the people who use gear and claim natural. I've even seen it plenty of times on this forum. So basically 90 percent of the people who use gear. Also the guys who won't contribute any of their success to the drugs when in fact the drugs are the KEY INGREDIENT to their success. Ive seen some guys before gear pics and they are like "it's all training and diet" but yet they looked like crap before gear. Then I find out they eat like garbage while on cycle yet remain super lean which is an even bigger indicator of the effect the drugs are having. Of course using ostarine versus using 6 injectable steroids plus peptides, HGH, TRT so not needing to even PCT plus god knows what else is a huge huge difference. The drug(s) being run are a big part of the picture obviously.I generally see the more people run the more results they see. However I still don't think you can run a mild cycle and claim natural. If I'm natural and standing next to a guy who is using tons of gear and he's claiming natural he is in essence taking away all of my hard work. People see him and say "oh his training must be on point and diet." Then they'll look at the truly natural guy and say "he must be doing something wrong." If steroids don't do much then why are you using them? They work and they are a game changer. It's the difference between a pro card and being an average gym goer. I feel bad for those who are too ignorant and naive to respect the power of the chemicals they are putting into their body

  21. Nah man, gear is part of the culture. I do find the bro-lore on the support supplements really annoying. They suggest an AI on a dry compound and they tell people to take cabergoline with Tren even when there are no signs of side effects.
    Nothing I say is medical advice and supplements only enhance and optimize your diet and exercise check with a medical professional before starting any program.

  22. If you’re bothered by steroids you picked the wrong hobby. Lol

  23. How many threads are you going to make about things that upset/annoy you within the fitness industry on a Fitness board?

    Youíre wasting your time on things you canít control. Enjoy life and stop being hypercritical of EVERYTHING.

  24. make the switch to powerlifting...steroids or not, we aren't as pretty in sparkling speedos, but we can tag along for Papa John's pizza night at Planet Fitness, in the judgment free zone and not feel ashamed...

    But seriously bro, what does it matter if some dude uses gear and you don't? How does THAT affect your life? Just do you bruh
