Former Mr. Universe Tom Platz offers fitness advice, his take on steroids | MLive.com

Quote:
"Drugs don't make the athlete, but they're involved," Platz said. "It takes much more than just the muscles to be a champion."

"The same champions will be champions without taking drugs," Platz said. "The biggest difference between my day and now is we're tapping into the genetic pool much more efficiently now. The people who are in it now are predestined to do this."

Platz offered an example.

"There's caffeine and aspirin in the workplace but do those things make the CEO who he is? It's not about one part of what's going on, it's more about the other things they're doing, what they're made of."

One large ingredient, Platz said, is the family atmosphere the gym represents to the bodybuilder and every-day weightlifter. It helps keep them dedicated to their craft.

"The gym is an extended part of your family," Platz said. "I know a lot of people who have lost their wives, lost their parents, and when those things happened they went to the gym."

"You always want to go home, and that's where home is for us."
