Question Ever thought about turning the Dark Side? (Figuratively Speaking)

You know when you bust your ass in the gym, eat religiously, get plenty of rest and you still can't move weight that you should be doing and look like you want for how much time you put in?

Then you think about using something wether be steroids or Prohormones or Designer steroids etc?

Do any of you guys ever think about steroids in depressing times like those?

I can actually say that I do it frequently. I used to look in Flex and M&F all the time and say man I wish I looked like that. Nowadays I have to stop myself from looking in them because it's depressing.

I think about using steroids all the time since they are pretty much a phone call away.

I actually got so angry about it a few months ago that I decided to take Halodrol-50 but I only took half a dose before I realized I shouldn't do it.

Do any of you get tempted?

Hell yea all the damn time, I'm only 18 so it would be ridiculously stupid to start using AAS right now, but in the future I can definitely see myself taking a cycle or two

I heartily accept the motto, "That government is best which governs least"; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically.

For some reason after seeing "The Wrestler" today, I became interested. Then came the realization that I would also have to work out hard and eat correctly in order to see good results, so I figured it's not worth it.

Every once in awhile I think about it. Plateaus are depressing. No matter how I lean I look or how built I look it still isn't enough to satisfy myself because it isn't the self image I want.

Back in my younger days when I was always struggling to put on weight I thought hard about one time when a friend had a buddy that was using and could get us some. Some of the side effects and other things convinced me not too and I'm very glad.

Hard work, dedication and consistency is always better even if you don't get the results you want as quickly as you want. I'm over 30 now and other than my hardcore lacrosse playing days I'm in the best shape of my life so I'm glad I never took the easy shortcut.

I do think about how nice it would be to be able to build up muscle and loose weight really fast but I also know the negative effects of steroids and how stupid it would be to use steroids. I also stay away from diet pills.

things like these solve the results not the problem.

I think about how nice it would be on diet pills and steroids but I never really seriously considered it.

"Bigger, Faster, Stronger" was a really good documentary, that shed a new light on the whole steroids issue for me. I never even considered it before, simply thinking that there were too many negatives associated with it. Nowadays I've often thought about going to the dark side, but ultimately I end up choosing not to because of lack of connect, price, and fear of baldness...

Man thats a good question Walker. Been training with weights since high school that was almost 20 years ago, never really stopped, go at least 3 but mostly 4 days a week, train real hard, dont mess around in there.In 2000 a gym friend asked if I wanted to buy some deca durabolin. He said he has been on it for years and If I wanted to get some good gains I should try it. I never even imagined he was on roids, I even thought most of the cover shots on body building mags were natural! I was to say the least naive. At the time I was 5'10" and weighed 180-185 on a good day and was using protein powder and creatine. I bought a cycle, about 3 months worth and took it 2x per week. Within 2 months I weighed around 200lbs and my bench press went from 225x6 to 275x6 and 225x18 incredible, plus I never got sore had way more energy. The size and strenghth lasted a couple of months after the cycle and then I slowly returned to exactly to where I was before ever using Deca. Never did it again but thought about it often. I have a new outlook on how hard people lift now, after trying so hard for so long and seeing way lazier people sit around and get huge I just think how they probably cant stop using ever cause its real hard going back to where you came from and getting sore with tiny gains again. I wont use em again cause it would be too hard to stop and Im getting older and look pretty decent anyway. And Deca is one of the more mild steroids.

I'd be lying if i said the thougth hadn't crossed my mind, although for different reasons than you guys. I'd want it for recovery purposes, so i could do more hard sessions (like 2x 16+ mile runs a week, 2x hard bricks a week) etc.

Ofcourse i haven't, and won't....the payoff isn't worth the risk, especially since I'm just an amature with zero chance of ever going pro....but it would be nice to be able to back up really hard the next day after getting utterly shelled the day before. Or be able to jump right back into training hard immediately following a race.

Demian Maia may be the Fred Astaire of jiu-jitsu, but it’s too bad Silva is the Gene Kelly of kicking everyone’s ass.

I really really want to try blood doping. No joke, but roids... no.
