Do pro BBers cycle?

Depends what you mean by "genetics". Cutler might not have the best genetics for a pretty physique, but he has great genetics in terms of growth.
That is one thing that most pro's share. Most of us avg joes can take boat loads of gear, train our asses off, and never be remotely close to the size of these guys.
Drugs won't make up for ****ty insertions, and other genetic shortcomings in terms of structure, but they will certainly allow someone to grow to freak show size.

1-Well yeah thats one of the reasons i believe jay was wining,decent genetics and plenty of mass,whihc is what judges love.they love mass,so I agree 100%
2-again i agree 100%..i know guys at my gym juicing for years and years compete diet and all that good ****.yet,they will never even be close to what these mr o guys are.. I have decent genetics,but if I juiced,it wouldnt work and I know that..My bro,great genetics if he was to juice and would have as a teen when he started training,i will tell ya i guarantee he would proba be a competitor in the ranks of the mr o.he symmetry is amazing and size..hes all natural and is a genetic freak.hes one of the few.
3-drugs will help to show size,but thats with anyone.What gives these bodybulders the feaky look these days is the most anabolic substance out there,INSULIN,which plays a big part. but if you dont have the symmetry and the shape,you dont have it and never will.anyone can get big to an extent that is.

Oh yes...and many of them run gear well into their off seasons too due to photo shoots, media work or jest because!

THe one thing some of these pros have is the ability for their muscle cells to receive nutrients. Most win based on that not that they have nice symetry and stuff. Most of them cant barely suck their gut in on stage. Is that worth it to be 250 on stage instead of 230?
For me it isnt. I think they look stupid trying to make a buck but whatever and the reason why BBing is underground and take place in high schools and no TV sponsor approaches them. Someone needs to clean up this damn mess ..lol
I think if they have height and weight classes there wont be a need to abuse all these drugs. If you tell someone at 6ft tall to come in at 220lbs max there is little incentive for them to be 250 and abuse drugs to get there and you will have ppl naturally trying to get there. At the same time, conditioning will be more prevelent rather than bulking into the abyss.
If there is will there is a way but so far nobody wants to step up to the plate. Meanwhile we all looking at the freak shows geting worse evey year.

Actually it is getting better, and the O is a perfect example of that. 2 years in a row now they rewarded those with the better lines, smaller waist, etc. Rhoden placed 3rd for that very reason. Kai streamlined for that reason.If there is will there is a way but so far nobody wants to step up to the plate. Meanwhile we all looking at the freak shows geting worse evey year.
Hopefully the trend continues.

Yes. The guys at the Olympia are still huge as f**k but they are deff leaner and more symmetrical. Joe Weider is deff doing his research on the body trends/evolution of each generation and letting his judges know the standard in which he wants in his IFBB athletes to be in; in order to win the OOriginally Posted by Frank Reynolds

It seems that after Ronnie and Cutler they do seem to go a bit smaller. I agree
I hope some day we can watch it on TV.

Yeah I know it was like tested in the early 90s but it didn't do so good. In my opinion the guys can still cycle but don't let the gear overpower their physique. We need "mass with class"Originally Posted by vassille

I would say blast cruising is mandatory for pros. I personally know a guy with his pro card that cruises on what most people would consider for a cycle.

if you are 200+ @ 5'8" and around 10-12% BF naturally?!?!?! You are doin GREAT! At that weight, you'd be ripped! Those guys on stage aren't exactly 4% BF, they might be 6-8%, but at 250+lbs, you don't have to be near as low in BF to look ripped.

So for the shorter guys, I'd say don't lose heart. 200lbs is more than enough to dominate the 212 if you are a short fella.

Thats what bodybuilding is about -shape, which I understand that there is a smaller crowd of non-BB'ing athletes in here in whose case I wasnt directing that towards.
I find it hard to say anything negative about a man that probably achieved more than I ever will in the area of muscle gain/fat loss. The question was to encourage others to stop being so critical.
