But to me I have seen enough to think it is an unhealthy thing to put your organs through and expect them to function the way they would for your entire life. The overwhelming sense I have gotten from those who have used, particularly long term is tha it has been taxing. So yes, I totally believe one can expect decreased life expectancy.

If someone is willing to show me where a Canadian man's life expectancy is the same after loading up on drugs that require you to take other drugs to support your organs, then I would say that is a miracle. What the change in life expectancy is, who knows? What does your heart have to do? What do your liver and kidneys have to do to process that garbage? And if even your hair and nails are growing in your sleep, what else are you accelerating?

Ammo.

You're talking about massive abuse and extended abuse of anabolic steroids.

Guys in pro sports don't do that. Trust me.

Hell, rich people been using HGH to stay healthy and young for a while now.

The question was whether or not you'd use PED's, not whether or not you'd abuse them until you were rotting from the inside out.

if they want to stay young why dont they just exercise and eat properly? i personally feel PEDs symbolize a bad thing in life and that is cutting corners. Using Peds is taking the easy way out and for people who use them that will transfer into the other areas of their life when they have a problem they will just settle for the easiest solution even if it has the worst possible outcome i think it changes an individuals mindset on choices they make.

fresh.... look at guys like Arnold and Sly (Stallone)... do you realize how much work they've put in over the past 40-50 years or so? They've pushed more iron in that time than most of us ever will in a lifetime... probably COMBINED.

Make no mistake... they didn't take any "easy ways out" and worked harder than 99.9% of the population to get their results.

Did they use PEDs? Yep, and I'm pretty sure that Sly is still using them now.... but not every user is the the lazy villain that you make them out to be.

+1. a common misconception with PEDs is that you can pop a pill or shoot a needle, sit on the couch, and turn into he-man.

PEDs give you the oomph that allows you to stay for an extra 30 minutes at the gym and get that extra weight up. it's not a shortcut by any means, just extends the boundaries of what a guy (or girl) can do with his/her body. still gotta put the work in, and probably work even harder.

they can also take a guy who should be in the twilight of his career and allow him rather to demolish every home run record in the book and that is the part that leaves you disgusted. I know you you still have to be skilled to be an eliite athlete, but it gets embarassing to try and ignore what can happen. And when the baseball shit hit that fan, players physically shrunk before your eyes. You know they had to still be working hard or harder to mask what they used to be up to, but to no avail.

yes i would use performance enhancing drugs and do plan on using HGH


HGH is the best, undetectable in sports(kobes probably using) and helps you stay young not to mentin you only need an injection once every few months which means less needles in thee ass.

and for christ sakes give bonds his due as players in earlier era's didn't have to face roided up pitching(something that nevers get mention). PED's are all about one thing, healing faster so nobody is going to tell me that 80% of mlb pitchers aren't on some shit cause they are.

Here's what I wanna know...

We understand why pro athletes use PEDs. It's a career move; helps them advance.

For regular guys who DON'T rely on their muscles and sport prowess to pay their bills, why the hell would you bother with PEDs at all?

Because he's been on TV. He is unattractive, you can have the six pack all you want but if you're not good looking, financially stable, have no personality and aren't that bright........you're little more then a meathead.

Lol.... stop hating jeff.

"Situation" isn't a bad looking guy... and I'm fairly sure that he isn't half the douche that he seems to be on the show. He plays a caricature of himself and it's making him A LOT of money right now.

Pretty smart if you ask me.

Let's put it this way 'cuda.... if you could get a needle in your ass once every few months that would perk up your boobs, get rid of wrinkles, strengthen your bones and allow you to continue to work out (at 40 years old) the way that you did when you were 20 would ya be tempted?

Nah. I have no wrinkles, my boobs are plenty perky, and I hate working out.

Ha!

But yeah, I see your point. I s'pose I don't know enough about it. And does it work like that on chicks?
