Quote:
(Mark Twight) asked, ‘Would you like to use steroids or HGH (human growth hormone) to get to where you want to go?’ I immediately said no. And he said, ‘Good. Because if you did, I wouldn’t train you.’
So Mark Twight was testing his new high-profile high-value client.

I bet it went down more like this:

Mark: So...Henry, would you like to use steroids or HGH to get where you want to go?'

Henry [horrified]: No, of course not.

Mark [disconcerted]: Yes...yes, of course. [Thinks quickly] What's that cat doing?

[Henry turns around to look. Mark quickly stuffs the package he has been holding back into his gym bag]

Henry: What cat?

Mark [smoothes hair and composes himself]: Oh, it's gone now. But I'm glad you said no. You see, I was testing you. If you had said 'yes', I could never have trained you.

[has sudden brainwave] Now, I've got some extra-special vitamins you're going to be taking...

They might not be magic, but even a minor dose can add 10 pounds easy to someone who uses them correctly under the right trainer. That is a lot of muscle.

I am perfectly happy for an actor to take gear. Seeing as he dosn't have kryptonian physiology to look the part, or able to generate huge energy fields within his alien cellular structure (extending an inch or so beyond his body too) he can get all the help he needs

lol

As I always say before bed!

In brightest day, in darkest night, let no evil escape my sight. Let those who worship evils might before my power green lanterns light!!! So far no luck

Mind you I am more of Marvel dude than DC. They recon their universe to much for my liking.

That may be true for high end stuff that pro BBers use, but in some places you can practically buy testosterone like it was any other Rx at the pharmacy. All legit.

Also, a basic protocol could be one shot and a couple pills per week... similar but less than you would do for insulin shots or Lipitor, etc.

When you get old enough, it's often to get any results with maximum effort!

well did you ever consider that you're part of the sub-set of people who don't have problems getting/using it lol? sorry, but i've never met anyone who was willing to talk about using or obtaining. not at the gym and not on the internet.
my point was that it's not so readily available that you can go to GNC to pick it up and then just read the "directions" on the side of the box. you do need to have connex. it's not something that literally anyone can use at any time they see fit.
i'm not anti-steroids, i'm just against them in pro sports and only because they're not over-the-counter for anyone who wants to use them. it's a secret that has to be kept from others, and that makes it unfair.

No its not at GNC nor the closest Pharmacy. And no Im not part of a sub-set of people with connections. If you look around and do your homework ,acquisition of the said product can be readily attained alone without any dark alley encounters. Im not pro or con, just stating a fact of the discussion.
