I‘m not a scientist, let alone a doctor, but I’ve hung around a lot of juicers over nearly four decades of lifting - many of whom are in their 70s today. After talking to a lot of these guys, I’ve developed a theory, quite possibly unsupported by science, that the trouble comes from staying consistently over about 500mg of Test (and equivalents). Heavy users, even over the long-term, appear to end up alright, provided they’re getting back under 500 a lot of the time (and provided they keep an eye on their blood pressure). Another observation is everyone slows down as they get older, without exception. So even the most staunch “die young, stay pretty” types, who claim they’ll be doing 1000mg of Test every week until they croak, aren’t doing anywhere near that when you talk to them 10 years later. Everyone gets tired, their enthusiasm wanes. It’s just a fact of life.
I couldn't agree with you more!
Again the difference between using and abusing.
Look at Ronnie the king Coleman... hes 58 years old. He absolutely abused his body... and probably gear as well. He says he didn't... but I'll just say his body alone. Squatting 800lbs for reps.
Then look at Mike o'hearn... hes 54 years old. he's absolutely fucking killing it! Still guess posing and on the front of magazines.
They both love the life style and lift heavy ass weights
But 1 took it too far and abused his body.
Now the other thing I wanted to touch on is that you have 40 years of experience with gear.
You're the type of person who I would actually listen too.
But that's the fucking problem... the people who actually have experience are drowned out by every other idiot who read the headline of a article and now think they are a expert.
"I read rich Piana died at 46 because of steroids, therefore I know anyone else who does steroids will die before 50"
They have no idea what he was on, or how much. They don't realize he was on hgh and insulin... but somehow they are the world's leading expert.
I'm just fucking sick of it.
Also... when did this total swing happen?
It use to be everyone was natural... no one is on steroids. The rock is natural, liver king... of course hes natural... no way tom Hardy did gear... he put 37lbs on for his Bane roll in 3 months naturally... he just ate a lot of cod.
Now... fucking anyone who is in any kind of shape... anyone with abs...they are on steroids!
When did this total pendulum swing happen?
