    Do pro bodybuilders get lots of side effects ?


    I have heard Ronnie had heart, liver and kidney transplants. I have heardd Jay had some transplants as well !

    So do they really get huge side effects that we are not aware of ? We only see them on stage, healthy and rich but we don't know whats going on in their life

    I can guarantee you they don't have any major organ transplants. There's no way they could have them and stay anywhere near top condition to compete.

    I'm sure they get lots of side effects from juicing plus lots of injuries from lifting but not transplants... the 2 you mentioned are as big as a house.

    just look at Steve Jobs he had a liver transplant and still doesn't look healthy

    Arnold had his heart surgery after competing. Ronnie has to have dialisis. Greg Kovacs developed Syndrome X. I wonder how these guys avoid acne, while some of us breakout on test boosters.

    arnolds surgery was the result of a defect since birth ..he in fact won a slander law suit against the National Enquirer as they said it was from roids ...

    Ronnie is not on Dialysis ..though Tom Prince is ...his was caused by using 32 Ibuprofen a day for 4 years ( hurt shoulders)

    Fair enough. Ill give you the Arnold one.

    Ronnie however may not be on constant dialisis, but they did show him getting his blood replaced in one of the videos. I don't know if it's fro the roids, or the amount of protein he eats though. He also takes medication for his kidneys and cholesterol, but my dad is on cholesterol medication to so that might not even be roid related.

    Which form of dialysis? Since you just mentioned blood, I'm going to assume hemodialysis, unless you were intending to talk about his kidneys. I can assure you Ronnie is not having peritoneal dialysis. As for hemo, hell I've had it done. It was for bone marrow donation, where instead of taking out my marrow, they removed my blood and returned it via dialysis with the goal to removing blood stem cells. Another use of dialysis for athletes is blood doping, EPO, etc. Just saying just because he was getting blood does not mean it's indicative of any one thing.

    Nevermind, I'm a rumor starter! I remebered the chords, but forgot what he was actually doing. Nothing blood related here.

    there is no way ronnie coleman is on dialysis, he would need a port in his arm for the dialysis(which would be visible with the low bf this guy carries). if he was having peritoneal dialysis he would also need some type of port, usually in the abdomen. if he had major organ transplants he would have a some big incisional scarring on his abdomen or lower back.

    The only sides I can see happening are drug related, or perhaps kidney problems from too much protein but I hardly think it happens

    His official CoD was liver and kidney failure. His electrolytes were off with extremely high potassium (diretics), but he did not have a MI.

    I think the drug related ones are what we are talking about. I don't know how Arnolds generation is doing because I don't really keep track of those guys, but I have a strong feeling the distended abdomen generation is gonna have some problems.

    220 natural Mostly muscle but I do have a gut. Im not as lean as Id like to be, but Im lean enough enough to where I still catch girls who look as good as it gets in my city checking me out.

    Im just saying, I think a generation of body builders with large internal organs have some worrying to do.

    partially on topic, have any of you guys seen "Bigger, Stronger Faster"? It's a documentary on roids, well done, and very very intriguing.

    Ya. It was a pretty good movie, but Im not sure if I believe that guy when he says he made the movie without bias. I reccomend the movie to everyone, but Ill also pouint out some flaws:

    1. When the side effects of roids are discussed, high estrogen wasn't even mentioned. Come on!

    2. It barely touched on oral steriods.

    3. These muscley guys kept talking about how they should have had the life of Arnold. Arnolds first handful of movies were all flops. He had a starlike charisma and unstoppable work ethic outside of bodybuilding that got him where he is. In fact, he was genetically gifted for it too. His personality, German coldness, and exotic accent made him what he is. Nobody whants to see Valentino blow **** up with his Jersey accent.

    4. They kept cutting to young Stallone whan talking about roids. He was 62 when he was caught with 2 antiageing medicines, and we still have no proof that young early Rocky was on anything.

    5. Their was this a section when it talked about steroids used in medicine, and it just sort of paved over the fact that just because something has medicinal purposes, dosen't neccasarily make it good for you.

    Im gonna make this a thread in general chat.

    The idea of enlarged internal organs is somewhat debated among people. The distended bellies come from visceral fat and food intake. Overall it all depends on the person though. It's genetics. Visceral fat can be high with subcutaneous being low. It's all relative to the person.
