By Mick Hart
- The truth the facts!
The question is basically simple; why do we use steroids? The answer is as simple; they assist the body in attaining
the physiques that we crave for. That's it period!
The knowledge has been given to us and we have used it. Why wait around
for ten years when we can safely boost the bodies normal growth levels.
One guy told me that he had been training for over ten years and had
stayed the same for the last four. What a waste.
Okay, looking at the ethics that are involved here; yeah, I suppose
that in a competition where 50% of the participants are not on the
"gear" and the other 50 are, the ones that use will most certainly have
the upper edge, of that there is no doubt. BUT this is 2003 for God's
sake, the question that we ask ourselves is, "Who isn't?"
- Don't push meeee!
If forced, boy could I prove that most of our top athletes,
footballers, rugby players, (name the sport if you like), use the gear.
The point to note here is that they would be monitored by their coaches
regularly, in order that maximum usage was utilised.
Mr. Joe Public turns up at his local G.P., and asks that he would wish
to use steroids under medical supervision. I can guarantee that 9 out
of ten will be told the same story, "You must not use them, they will
kill you", or "They will cause you liver cancer".
My favourite one was when a fellow bodybuilder popped into
his local health centre and asked the same story. He was
given every bad story that was related TO HIS (the
My friend then asked him to clarify - he could not! He then asked if
the doctor could even say what the steroid did. His answer was so
simple it was unreal. He did not know, simple!!
I would like to say that I do not intend to pull the medical fraternity
down, no way. What I do say is that just you tell me how much evidence
you have to prove your theories.
Absolutely naff all!
For all the assumptions, you have nothing. No evidence, no proof and
literally no idea as to the real dosages and cycles that a bodybuilder
I want to know why? Well this is simple as well. I have used the gear,
tested it, competed with it, trained highly successfully on it WITH
ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEMS WHATSOEVER!
The reason that I have had no problems is because I have
never abused it using steroids.
Most sensible bodybuilders, and I stress the word sensible very
strongly know just how much to take; when to come off, when to return
to the next course and also what safety aspects to initiate.
Believe me, we do know. I can even tell you that of all the steroids
that I have used in my career have been A1. Top Hole, absolutely numero
I can guarantee this to myself because every one is tested properly by
a brilliant Bio-Chemist friend. The tests include High Pressure Liquid
Chromaography; Mass Spectroscopy and last but certainly not least,
Ultraviolet Absorption Spectroscopy.
For those not in the know; the first test refines the
sample, the second identifies the molecular weight of the compounds and
the final test is to literally test to see if it is actually what it
Now tell me this, do I want to get it right for myself or
not? I think that if I am prepared to go that far, the question needs
answering, "Do I see it as a drug problem or do I want to improve my
physique the safest way possible?" The first is a no no, the second an
- No Problemo!
There is no drug problem with steroids! There will be though if the
government changes the law (in the UK). What will happen? Well for a
start, the counterfeiters will have a field day. They will be producing
absolute crap from tin baths, garages you name it, they will do it.
Sterility will go out of the window and people will get
hurt. That is without doubt. Advice will NOT be freely
given, people will stay schtumm, and then some!
The drug problems that we have to worry about are the ones that addict
from day one. The key word here is KILL, and steroids have NOT been
linked to any direct deaths, the hard drugs have built up numbers that
cannot be counted, literally.
This society where hypocrisy and double standards tend to be the norm,
we forget the fact that we are surrounded with LEGAL drugs that kill
more people in one day that steroids will in centuries. Cigarettes and
booze, stand up and be counted! I rest my case.
The total arse holes who chase every thing that can be said bad about
steroids, are not prepared to come out in the open and say anything
good about them.
This is because that just do not know what they are actually talking
about in the first place. One newspaper article wrote once that they
suspected that a certain athlete had been accused of using THE steroid
in competition. They had not even researched enough to realise that
there might be more than one!
Fair enough! Why are the powers that be NOT prepared to come up with
the funds to finance experiments into research to be totally sure that
what they say is fact.
All that they can do is start their comments with the following
phrases: "Should there be a problem", "If evidence is produced", "There
may be facts to back up etc", "If per chance" and they go on and on.
Not one of them definites, not one person prepared to commit
- I am!
Bodybuilders do not see their choice to use the gear as a problem. What
they are more concerned about is getting the right advice and as often
as possible in order that any problems that arise can be dealt with
quickly. If advice is minimal, then problems, will arise, boy will it.
For a start, injecting in itself can be awkward and frightening. One
guy came to see me and asked which vein should he inject into as it was
his first instance, the steroid that he obtained from his source was
absolutely crap, totally rubbish.
It turned out to be harmless actually, as most counterfeits are, but it
could have gone the other way.
The worst of it was that as a total beginner, I told him
that if he had injected into a vein in the manner that HE THOUGHT that
he had to, he would have been dead within minutes. That is no bull, no
This guy was scared. In the end, he opted for an oral which was much
less toxic, added all the safety back ups, increased his vitamin
supplements and has done extremely well. No problems whatsoever. In
actual fact, he achieved what he wanted and now uses very little if at
Not all steroids are the same. There are many that are much more
powerful than others.
The problem with the heavier ones is that they can hold much more water
than the lower androgenic steroids and by this water retention being
held, the physique takes on a bloated look.
The blood pressure can increase as a side effect which is
the main problem. This is easily remedied with the addition
of Nolvadex/Tamoxifen which counteracts the water retention properties
of the steroids and although it is not a cure, can prevent what we call
in the bodybuilding world as "Bitch-Tits", technical name Gynecomastia.
Anyone needing further information on this side effect can contact with
no problem. It is easily remedied if Nolvadex is used.
The main point to note here is that although there is no addictions
compared to those of the harder drugs, the addiction that is apparent
is the fitness aspect.
Many can be addicted to training in itself WITHOUT the use
of gear, but the addiction of steroids into the training lifestyle only
adds to the perfection that can be achieved when steroid therapy is
If we can do this under medical supervision, privately I
might add, then we could not only register every trainer,
but produce revenue at the same time. Lets face it, the government gets
paid for everything else so why not on these points.
Finally, I would like to have given a few pointers out of specific side
effects but the enormous task of actually putting the main points of
evidence for the defence over are quite vast and extremely important if
we are to look at this subject from all angles.
In the meantime, if you require any detailed information on any of the
steroids and methods in use today, The "Laymans Guides to Steroids"
will most definitely be essential reading - that I can most certainly
guarantee! SEE YA!!
