Aslong as he's in the normal limits I don't care if he uses it or not.

I think that's a younger picture of Joe. Joe today isn't that lean or muscular. His best days were when he was in his early 20's doing TKD tournaments. He's a bit heavy these days (relative to his younger years).

TRT "is suppose" to bring you to a healthly baseline of test relative to a healthy male, if you are indeed taking it as a result of low T. Anabolic Steroids take your test waaaaaaaay above a homeostatic level, which is what's responsible for the unnatural hypertrophic effects.

I can see the argument where TRT=cheating, which I'm not offering an opinion on, but TRT does not equate to Anabolic Steroids, not even close.

A lot, if not most people 30 and over could potentiallly qualify for TRT. Testosterone drops a certain percentage each year following 25, so it's not hard to drop below a "normal level" of test when your 30+ of age.
It's funny because you have no idea what you are talking about.


TRT consists of steroid injections used on people who naturally have low testosterone(due to age) and brings them back to their levels they had in there 20s.

It's disgusting and an abomination.

Well...it's official, TRT is a bunch of bullshit.

Last I checked Rampage just fought for the title and fought like he fought all his other fights, what a bunch of bull crap.

Qualifying for administration of TRT is like qualifying for medicinal marijuana...only it's at the professional level, so you know for certain it's a bunch of bullshit.

My main points.

TRT does not equate to Anabolic Steroids. I should have said TRT does not equate to a normal steroid cycle (TRT 200mg of Test Ethenate every 5days vs 500-750mg test ethenate a week). Also, some people use DHEA as a form of TRT, and I can't speak on which one Rampage was on. I could have been clearer, I'll give you that.

TRT is meant to bring you back to healthy levels of test, which is pretty much what you just said. Being that "healthy" is a male in his prime, age 18-25'ish.

Cheating, not cheating, I didn't offer an opinion on.

Are you really comparing a picture of Rogan and his peak to Brady as a 21 year old kid coming out of college. I am sure if you look at Brady now he looks completely different.
