The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

Correct me if I'm wrong but I was always under the impression that the amount of stuff you need to maximize strength and minimize recovery was far less than the amounts needed to maintain freakish size and ultra-low body fat?You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

Edit: Alright, I should read more. I've read about claims for a blood test that will catch it up to 84 days, but it wasn't confirmed in the article. Can you confirm this?

Man I had no idea that Anthony Clark and Quadzilla were both dead.
But to be objective, the amount of drugs that a typical IFBB pro takes would dwarf what anybody on this board would ever dream of using.

Well i missed alot over the weekend. Allow me to throw my opinion in. First off using bodybuilders as an example of steroids killing people off well let me tell you a little something about these guys. Steroids are probably the least toxic substance going into their bodies if you get my drift. These guys live fast and hard. Better to burn out than fade away is their mantra.
As for the ethics. **** ethics. Its all relative. As far as professional athletes go i want to see freaks of nature. I want to see 360 pound lineman running the 40 in 4 seconds .I want to see Barry Bonds knock the living **** out of the ball. Now i do think its a bitch move to deny it and lie. Jason Giambi was the man came forward owned up.
The only question of ethics i have is why are there no athletes under indictment after they test positive .Why arent search warrants being issued?I know i know money. To make an accusation against Bonds and then "tarnish" his reputation if nothing was found would result in huge lawsuits.
This angers me because there are alot of brothers out there incarcerated for steroids.For steroids while the heroin addicts wander around like night of the living dead and crack addicts beat old ladies in the head for cash to buy there next fix our beloved goverment dumps money into catching these "dangerous" amateur bodybuilders and athletes. Get the **** out of here. Makes me want to go join the militia.Christ im kidding dont go alerting my probation officier or anything.Love my country hate my goverment.

I believe it was equipoise who said alot of the damage that comes from the use of performance enhancers is due to improper use. Your post cycle therapy is equally as important as your cycle itself. Knowing when to cycle off and how long a cycle should last also is important.
If the medical community will let a fucking dude cut of his dick and have fake tits attached or allow an 11 or 12 year old girl to take birth control (which are hormones by the way )then why is it unethical to prescribe performance enhancers to adults for cosmetic reasons.
