kai greene

by Geoff Roberts

One of my favorite quotes goes as follows, “Idle hands are the devil’s playground”. What this quote is attempting to get across is that when a person is complacent or bored, they tend to make bad decisions resulting in negative outcomes. The quote reminds me of top level bodybuilders who decide to take an entire year or more off from competing between shows. This may in some ways sound like a good idea, but it rarely works out for the best unless you are Mr Olympia.

drugs

by Cade Thomas

Modern bodybuilding would not be what it is without drugs. We all know that. The extended laundry list of substances that can (and are often) utilized by competitors and gym rats alike sound more and more like the ingredient list on a pack of Marlboro’s every year. Just check the main page of any steroid based forum or chemical enhancement sub-section and you will see people fishing for results from the latest super drug. The bag of magic tricks gets deeper and bigger constantly, but do the physiques?

Previously, in Part #1 of this article, we addressed several preventative measures one can employ in order to restore/maintain a healthy appetite, especially in regards to supplementation, diet, and knowing one’s body. However, before we move onto the topic of curative therapies, there are a few more preventative measures we should touch on. Colonics are one of these. Commonly referred to as colonic irrigation or colon hydrotherapy, colonics require the assistance of a trained professional and involve the infusion of water into the rectum for the purpose of cleansing and flushing out the colon. Due to the nature of the procedure, it is much more thorough and rapid-acting than conventional home treatments involving OTC laxatives.

bodybuilder

As a BB’r or any other weight training enthusiast looking to put on size, eating enough food to sustain one’s mass-building efforts over the long-term can prove to be a real challenge. What might initially be perceived as a relatively simple task often turns into a tremendous test of willpower, as the growing metabolic demands of one’s ever-expanding muscle tissue combined with the realization that there is no off-time, begin to take a toll on the BBr’s resolve. In truth, most BB’rs will end up failing this test long before achieving their ultimate physique goals.

Amongst the old-school BB’rs it was common practice to “bulk-up” when attempting to gain muscle. This went on for decades, with everyone from beginners to professionals ascribing to this method of mass-gaining. It was well understood that in order to get big, one needed to eat big…and eat big they did. Despite the relative lack of knowledge available in those days, this approach allowed many to pack on muscle at an astounding rate, often with minimal and in some cases no chemical enhancement.

If you’ve bought protein powder in the past few years, you’ve probably been ripped off. So that’s the bad news…but the good news is that you might be eligible to get some of that money back.

If you’re unfamiliar with the term, protein spiking (aka amino spiking or nitrogen spiking) is what we (people who work in the supplement industry) call it when a company adds cheap aminos to a protein powder to drive down the manufacturing costs.

Can you please explain what Anabolic Androgenic Steroids are? Also, I know AAS pack on muscle and make a person stronger, but what do steroids actually do to cause the enhancements?

Good question…you would be surprised as to hop many bodybuilders and professional athletes in general who use AAS and all the while having no idea what steroids are or how they actually work. Anabolic steroids are hundreds of different medications all containing a synthetic form of the hormone testosterone, or other synthetic compounds originating in this hormone.

I have found myself changing views on a variety of subjects throughout my life. That is just how things go. You live, you learn, and grow from experiences. When someone learns from a bad experience or wrongdoing and decides to change things, this is generally viewed as noble. I think it is human nature to be hypocritical at times, but when someone’s life is based around hypocritical views, their character can certainly be questioned.

post-cycle-therapy-pct

by Mike Arnold

As the greatest development in the area of adjunctive performance enhancement in the last 20 years, post-cycle therapy offers undeniable benefits to the cycling steroid user. The ability to maintain long-term endogenous testosterone production, preserve muscle mass between cycles, reduce off time from AAS, and protect fertility are usually the most appreciated. With so much confusion on the subject, let’s take a few minutes to discuss the various PCT drugs and their role in maintaining our hormonal landscape. Although differences in financial status, goals, and degree of suppression prevent a single program from meeting the needs of all, there are some basic guidelines that any effective PCT program should adhere to.

In the past you’ve openly discussed steroid use and even listed actual AAS calycles. Could you please give a detailed report as to your experiences with specific steroids?
Absolutely! Let me first say that I’ve literally used damn near every testosterone made or combination of and dozens of related compounds during my career starting in 1988 and ending in 2005. The first Anabolic Androgenic Steroid that comes to mind is Oxymetholone or more commonly known under its banned name Anadrol 50. Oxymetholone is a very powerful anabolic steroid being a derivative of dihydrotestosterone.

“When to begin using performance enhancing Drugs?”

With more people than ever before turning to performance enhancing drugs prematurely, the question “when should I begin using steroids” is more relevant than ever. With such a wide variety of opinions on the subject, I want to take a few minutes to address those who might be considering the jump to chemical enhancement, but are unsure of their readiness. While differences in both circumstance and age preclude the possibility of an all-inclusive answer, there are some general questions that every BB’r should be able to answer correctly before getting a green light to use these drugs.

Fairness and equality are topics that have taken a pretty big spotlight over the past few years. L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling created a media storm regarding his recent statements about race, and the criticism towards Sterling by all racial groups has shown how much our society has changed for the better when it comes to racial equality. When fairness is concerned, one has to ask what is actually fair? We are all born with different genes and raised in different environments, but when someone succeeds at something and another person doesn’t, jealousy will often drive the unsuccessful person to think things are just not fair. A feeling of unfairness has been a big driving force behind many of the witch-hunts that have taken place regarding anabolic steroids.
