Drugs in other sports
So bodybuilding is pretty heavily associated with drug use. Most boards have a section dedicated to anabolic drugs, and its normally the most posted section. We all can discuss openly cycles, drugs etc..
What about other sports? Do they have such boards? E.g. cycling, runnign, footy, etc. They all use anabolics as well, where do they get their info from? Can't be just from their coaches, trainers, etc can it?
Most sports tend to keep, it pretty well covered up to the outside world, yet any fool can look up bodybuilding on the net and find thousands of pages dedicated to drug use in it.
I did a quick serch and could find next to nothing like we have here at Anabolex for other sports like cycling, sprinting etc
IS drug use in sports (as in relation to dosages) sky rocketing as it is in bodybuilding? In my anabolic refence guide by phillips, published in 1990, they talk as if 1000mg/wk is huge, and 2000 is insane.
13 years later 1000mg seems t be a starting point for most, and 2g is only really considered serious, with 3-4g not being uncommon, if half of what is being posted is to be believed. And those quoting these courses are not normally pros, or high level amateurs!!
Anyone with some insight?
My opinion is that if you want to be competitive in some sports, unless you're a genetic freak, you need to be "chemically enhanced". Although in some sports it's unnecessary to take anything, for instance tennis or golf. I doubt somebody like Lleyton Hewitt takes anything other than his mum's tit. I'm a bit suspect of people like Ian Thorpe and pretty much 95% of all rugby players. Shane Warne... lol
Definatley. I'd say mostly EPO for elite cyclists runners ect, and deca for lower paid, connected athletes.
There is no info on the net about this.
A while back, I was posting similar queries, and I got a lot of off-board help from a well-known Aussie Corner member. He was a bit coy but clearly had a lot of involvement with elite athletes. He was saying there are just no resources on gear in other sports; its all word of mouth.
And from what I remember, it seems like the regimes and ways of going about it were pretty different.
Thats what I thought Minimalist, doesn't at all seem as out in the open as in bodybuilding, yet I am sure just as many recreational athletes prob do it.
Seems strange that so open in bodybuilding, no wonder everyone thinks we all use gear, we don't make any attempt to hide it.
I would have thought there would be a few "hardcore" sports sites out there sharing the info, I guess not.
Prob a good and a bad thing, good to be able to openly discuss, but cause of the attention it causes...
What really bought it to my attention was talking to a footballer, who was discussing his course, and kept mentioning sustanon 100?
Had never heard of it and dismissed him as a fool, but looked in up in anabolics 2002, and oragon do make a sust 100!
