Sometimes my wife lets me porrada -

If he has an endocrinologist monitoring him and getting him legit supplements that are safe, I don't see what the issue could be. 

The issue is that his steroid use is never spoken about or acknowledged in a direct manner.

The entire muscle and fitness industry is built on this hypocrisy.

Bodybuilding magazines are full of photos of guys on steroids but the articles never talk about steroid use and how to do it properly.

No, it's all weight routines, diet advice, and motivational coaching. Hard work and quality calories, bro. Just dedication.

The general public is under a vast misconception that the results they see are achievable without steroids.

People toil away in gyms for years and wonder why they don't look as good as Chris Pratt's shirtless scene in Guardians of the Galaxy.

 

To be fair he’s going to get slammed if he comes out and starts advocating steroids, also I’m pretty sure anyone who has been training for a while knows the difference between the guys who are natural and the guys taking something

It’s crazy how ignorant the general population is about roids, even after the baseball/track/cycling debacles.

I thought both him and marky mark admitted to taking roids for pain and gain

Pokanghoya - Severn claims to have never juiced.

That’s believable. He’s big and strong, but never a freak and never shredded and vascular.

you guys should give a listen to the lapsed fan podcast, (it's super long, super in depth and super funny) they're doing a series on the wwe steroid trials from the early 90's now, in it they state that steroids are a schedule 3 drug which means it's controlled, you can only use with a valid doctors prescription for a legit problem (not cosmetic) anyway the reason no one can admit to using is to do so is to admit to a crime, that could potentially land you a prison term. that's one of the reasons no one can talk about it

In Canada it is not illegal to possess or  use steroids but it is illegal to traffic them. As such it’s almost a non prosecutorial offence and not in the public interest to do so.

He uses that for bragging rights now that he's one of the only clean UFC champs.

Must be why so many youtube fitness channels are Canadian based! lol

Lol at the haters who have never lifted a gallon of milk.

Dude just has crazy work ethic and Samoan genetics, I’ve had many friends get similar results with Earth Grown Nutrients, plenty of sleep, and drinking enough water.

That’s a Deca/Winstrol/Propianate stack with a side of equipoise and or Clenbuterol for vascularity, some Halotestin and some Nolvadex for side effects a few iUs of HGH at bedtime and a bunch of Paxil for mood swings and FUCK YEAH BRO GET PUMPED THE FUCK UP LETS DO THE TOOTHFAIRY PART 2!!!

Back in the day this was known as the HHH stack at the gym I worked at that had their corporate account and was right next to Weider publications in Woodland Hills.  Lots of steroids lots of HGH lots GHB lots of Jeff Everson on the stationery bike giving out advice.

That wasn’t the question. 

I think your initial question has been answered and is a resounding “of course fucking not”. Now my question, in the same vein, is “does anyone care that the Rock is most certainly on steroids”.

Six pages and 13,000+ views. Here's your answer: Yes. People care, one way or another.

I guess my next question would be “why? why would you give a single fuck”?

Read the thread. I've explained why multiple times at this point.

But I'll repeat it in short form yet again:

I don't care that he uses steroids.

I care that he lies about it.

Pokanghoya - Severn claims to have never juiced.

I do believe Severn, he's just a big framed guy that has worked out his entire life..he's not even that muscular really, just thick and stocky..look at Ken Shamrock for comparison, the guy is fucking huge and shredded year round lol

Literally not a discussion to be had. The one that gets me is Anthony Joshua the british boxer... looks like a super hero yet everybody says he's never been caught so it clean..

The rock's image is very PG. He is constantly in family movies and is a roll model to a lot of young kids. 

Whether you agree with older adults taking steroids or not we probably all agree that young people shouldn't take them. 

The rock has an amazing body and admitting to his steroid usage would drive thousands or even millions of kids to take steroids. He absolutely is correct to deny his usage.

Sounds good until those young men enter HS and realise they can't get 1/10th the gains of him naturally. Because he's the ideal and he's what they want to look like, yes they'll take steroids to get there like the other guys using steroids in the gym.


What you're saying is  kinda like if Pam Anderson in the 90's denied she'd had implants it would mean it'd reduce the rate of young girls that will want to get implants to look like her. No, if that's the ideal that's put out there those girls will do what it takes to get there whether she confirmed or not.


Yep, and when those kids have hit the weights hard and dieted well for 5-6 years but yet are nowhere close to the Rock in size, they start to see themselves as defective in a way..they've out all the hard work in yet have not seen the wanted results..it's confusing but this is when most of these guys figure out what it really takes to get that size and vascularity

To this day, I still couldn't tell you a genetically average guy can truly attain naturally through lifting and diet after 10-15 years of training...id guesstimate they would look like Don Frye in the UFC days..that's usually the biggest I've seen natural guys hit

Frye was definitely juiced throughout his career


I know he was in Pride but when he made his ufc debut, he was only around 200 pounds but muscular and lean but not shredded..I could see him being clean at this time but when hews to Pride, he jumped on the gear and gained 30 pounds of muscle but it didn't help his skillset
