Ever been called out?
What do you say to something like that?
I haven't taken any serious mass gain cycles so I'm not big enough for most people to get suspicious, but I saw a guy in one of my classes get called out today. He's in good shape, but he's got absurdly huge biceps that seem to be growing at an astronomical rate. He walked in and someone just yelled "STEROIDS". He just sat down, started eating a sandwich and let the guy get bored of heckling him.

If I can't link to a competitor store, I will gladly remove this.
EDIT: REMOVED LINK

ive been called out by my neighbor and the lady that works the front desk at my gym as well as my girfriends sister... im not even that big but i did put on 20 lbs on a cycle and my neck grew an inch or 2 lol. i specifically remember her asking why my neck got so big. i didnt have an answer other than i started eating more. personally i take it as a compliment because i get accused on or off cycles.

most people are ignorant to what someone that is on steroids looks like. Ive had people ask me for years....even when i was alot smaller. Ive never had someone heckle me though..i think that would be dumb of them. Most people dont talk **** to someone 6'3 250 but who knows..There are many things you can do to combat them. If someone yelled steroids at me Id just give them a bicep pose and ask them if they were jealous.

I just got called out yesterday by a family friend. I just gave him that puzzled look and said I was just eating and working out more. Basically blew him off like he didn't know what he was talking about, and I think he bought it. I'm nearing the end of a cycle where I gained 20lbs, and it keeps getting harder to hide the obvious from my wife and co-workers. Wearing loose or baggy clothes works pretty good for me.

I would do what your friend with the stupid looking biceps did and ignore everybody, if not laugh at them.
My favorite part about this whole topic is that people will take steroids and then totally deny it because they don't want other people to negatively judge them for any number of reasons society associates with steroid use (e.g. using an illegal scheduled substance, using a breast cancer treatment to stimulate testosterone production, risking their long-term health, foregoing legality concerns, being so vain that they need steroids to feel good about themselves, and the list goes on and on and on).
I am neutral on the issue of performance enhancing drugs. Do whatever the hell you want, just don't try to pass yourself off as natural and simply genetically superior to everyone. It's really fun to watch people who clearly abuse steroids try to deny/hide it from everybody else -- it's unbelievably entertaining and the psychology surrounding that kind of behavior is interesting.

I'd just let the guy heckling sit there and I wouldn't say anything. If someone feels the need to act foolish and say something like that then they're more than likely jealous. So take it as a complement. My entire last semester at school I worked with two guys that constantly called me "steroids". They didn't know anything but just were upset by the fact that they were my height just 40lbs lighter And it might have had something to do with the fact that one of them's ex gf *who is an extremely hot redhead, talked/talks to me all the time. What the hell ever, people are going to say what they will, but it doesn't matter just keep lifting.
I'm not against steroids (obviously) I'm just against people using them irresponsibly, which I used to see a lot in college. And that's the only reason I would ever call someone out myself.
I was also called out by an ex gf months after we broke up a few years ago (While on my first cycle of EPI). She looks at me and says "Are you on something you look bigger" and then proceeded to try to hook up later that night. I just told her she'd never know and I'm more interested in girls that keep themselves up now. It pissed her off but whatever, she deserved it for constantly badgering me about creatine being a steroid.

when I was closer to 220-225 I was at Gold's and during peak hours, from across the gym a buddy of mine screams at the top of his lungs... " Hey man ... You on Juice ? "

I think people say **** more on the basis of seeing someone gain 20lbs in 4 weeks then heckling someone purely for size. My friends always say **** out loud in the gym or when i walk into a room with others u just gotta ignore it. or say something that will make them feel mad stupid, completly unrelated to steroids.

just laugh it off. i get called out at least once a week, and yeah know what? let them hate. sometimes it is funny the **** people come up with. and answer i give when people ask though and you can tell they are just being an ******* is " oh i'm sorry for having superior genetics." or this is my favorite " sorry the best parts of you ran down your father's leg."
the best one i heard was from my own cousin. he goes, my god, your arms are huge and veiny. your busting out of your shirt. when does your next package from turkey arrive? i should know i mean i am your lawyer.
just let them hate.

Hahaha... I got called out for roids just cause I was busting a** in the gym all the time, and get really vascular on the arms. It's normally just idiots who don't know sh*t.
Yeah, I'm 6'1" @ 190lb....
