I think he actually trained hard and legit the first 4 years of his weight lifting career. I could be wrong but, steroids or not he's my idol.
I read somewhere ( I don't remember where) that he started using roids before he was even 18 and used them continually during his BB career. Just something I remember reading and thought I would share.
Like you, I could care less about his steroid use.

I am not a powerlifter nor am I a bodybuilder. I just want to be big and strong.
