I took this off an old BB forum. I used to be a member there until all that stuff went down. But I had communicated with Tom and his comments were interesting. True or not (I really don't know) he said he never used more than 500mgs of test and rarely anything else. As most of you know, he almost died of kidney failure, not because of the AAS, but because of all the ibuprofen he took to mask the pain. That destroyed his liver which affected his kidneys. Anyway, I wanted to share this with everyone. It's coming from a bona fide pro, so don't shoot the messenger:
I'm going to cut right to it. Here's EXACTLY, word for word, what it takes for anyone to turn pro:
2. Busting your ass in the gym
3. Knowing how to eat alot of good food
4. Knowing what it means to "rest"
5. 12-15 YEARS of being consistant, and never missing a scheduled workout (*note: you are allowed to miss 2-3 workouts in that 12-15 years for funerals, family tragedy, etc.)
NOW.. here's how 1-5 plays out: Your GENETICS, you are born with, and can do nothing about. Numbers 2,3,4, I could teach a retarded monkey with a brain amputation.
And #5.. is why 99.99999% of the people fail.. and fall dead on their ass.
Notice is doesn't say "gear" or "steroids" in there at all. If you are one of those people that walks around saying "he's just big because he's on tons of ****!", then you will NEVER make it. NEVER!!
Steroids, GH, gear.. is the ultimate weak minded pussies excuse. Because, if it's GEAR, they never have to admit they aren't good enough. These people come up with an abstract excuse that no one can exacty pin point (how much, exactly is "tons of ****"?), and that way they don't have to admit they just ain't got it.
Notice the only thing you never hear someone say is: "I'm just not good enough?"
