How much do you think steroids improve performance in powerlifting? Im amazed progression that my training partner has made. We have trained about three years now, he is having a normal family life, he will be 41 this year and he is eating "basic home food", but his progression in this three year period has been absolutely fantastic, I think. His father was a world class powerlifter so the genes must play a part but I just wonder that if he were 20-something with no family "restrictions" and would train more than that three times a week that we do and have a pro to make his training program (and not me
), he would get some huge numbers for sure.
So is he just exceptional talent or would his progression be much better still if he would use steroids (even at his age)?
