Before his death Lyle Alzedo (a raider from back in the day) came out and spoke against the use of PEDs and growth hormones and he attributed his pending death to them. The list of dead wrestlers is worse than that of the football players.
G94 is not the only one here to come out of a "gym' environment.
I've known hockey players from back in the late 80s and 90s trying to make it that were on equivar and winstrol.
Now, the sky is the limit with drugs like MT(methyltrienolone)and other designer roids making their way to the market the combinations are infinite. Its not uncommon to have athletes taking mutiple PEDs at a time.
Let's make one thing clear, your first cycle will likely be your weakest cycle. There is no going soft on PEDs, when you take em you take them for their impact and gains they provide. There is no "i'll just take a little".
One point where I do agree with G94 is to throw the doors wide open let all pro athletes use them, if not, the leaugues should then stop being hypocrites and clamp down on it. Start a rigorous testing schedule in order to stop the use of PEDs, there is no middle ground.
Lyle Alzedo's death was not linked to steroid use. in his case I should say abuse though.
The problem with some people who abuse steroids is that they often use other illicit recreational substances as well.
Dr Harrison Pope, an expert on the subject, is a great read if you have the time. 250mgs of exogenous testosterone per week has been studied on healthy adult males, and no significant health risks were attributed to them. Meanwhile loads of prescription drugs with serious health problems are being ingested daily in North America, but it's okay because they ''have a prescription for it''.
I disagree about just taking a little isn't effective. If you take 600mgs of test a week (use), and the other guy takes 2g of test a week (abuse), he won't get better results. His body can't use all of that testosterone, he'll just convert it to estrogen and cause health problems, as well as some funny physical changes
