and the bigger factor that he has clearly stopped LIFTING WEIGHTS. and eating 8 times a day
Steroids dont build muscle, food training and sleep build muscle. steroids are not anabolic they are anti catabolic, which honestly is not the same thing. I see your point butyour comment only furthers the assumption that the differance bt the average guy and a huge guy is the huge guy is abusing steroids. which may not be the case at all, exspecially if a perosn understand anabolism from training diet and sleeping points of view.
that being said, they really are miracle drugs in a way when it comes to getting big, i mean cmon look at the difference between contestants in tested and non tested shows. this guy i know off started a cycle, and he didnt take training and diet that seriously, he trained hard offc, but his diet was all junk food, and damn he got big, went from 70 kg to 100 kg in a couple of months, people couldnt believe what they saw.
and this pic of fedorov shows it, and look at levrone now and melvin anthony at the arnold expo last year, its amazing to see how much they shrink when theyre off the sauce. so steroids is a vital part of our sport, but so is it in most other sports.
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
Sorry about that I did not mean that steroids alone made his body. just pointing out that fact that along with a great training routine and eating a well calculated diet. Add some AAS and he became one huge mofo. I am not opposed to gear at all, and I am not saying it is a miracle drug. Some users have never achieved any gains from gear. I am just pointing out the fact that when used STEROIDS can possibly take you to a place that a natural can not touch. Yes as always there is a difference between use and ABUSE.
Ofcourse there's alot more to it then all the "medication" the pros use, but let's face it, noone will reach the Olympia stage without a shitload of steroids. On the other hand, most people wouldn't reach it nomatter what dosages they use.
Shrinkin' like that is mostly due to his intake of aas. Being on for years using crazy dosages and then more or less stop will leave you with hormonelevels like a 10year old girl, and there's noway in hell you'll be able to hold on to the muscles that were built using extreme dosages.
