That Taboo Thing: Steroids
Perhaps little known to the general public, steroids are as large a part of professional bodybuilding as legal supplementation, diet, and even lifting weights. All four aspects must be perfectly balanced in order for a bodybuilder to look their absolute best on stage. This is not a sport for making money, unless you consistently win 2-3 pro shows a year and have killer endorsement deals, or your own supplement line, think Phil Heath, Jay Cutler, and Ronnie Coleman. Although in terms of bodybuilding, I am as much of an amateur as one can be, and although I have not partaken in the use of steroids, I know several people who have. This is a topic that is ignored entirely too often and T-Nation produced a great article, from an anonymous source, on the subject. Since my knowledge is decent, but no where near as good as the article, here is the link to that story: https://www.t-nation.com/steroids/steroids-what-pro-bodybuilders-are-really-using. On a side note, I am in no way advocating the use of steroids, I am just presenting information as factually as I possibly can, and choosing not to ignore the subject that is so usually ignored in this great sport.
