I'm not saying the use of TRT is akin to hardcore anabolic juicing. It can, however, if used in excess, greatly enhance a fighters ability.
I'm on the side where if you have to boost your T levels in order to be competitive in a sport, then you shouldn't be in that sport. Either everyone does TRT, or no one does. A level playing field is what I'd (naively) want to see.
You didnt mean that testosterone is a steroid hormone??? Thats weird since thats what you exactly said....
Why would everyone do testosterone when their levels are already at the normal levels???
Well then youd be surprised how many supplements you would consider a steroid.
Steroids are derived from the steroid molecule BUT thats alot different then trt. TRT users are not steroid users.
But thats my opinion and each his own.
If you want even playing fields then you gotta look at everything and not just trt.
What about when some peoples bodies produce more natural testostrone then others???
Thats not an even playing field.
What about when your genetically gifted like Jon Jones. Thats not playing on an even playing field. I guess we could add Melvin Guillard speed in that category. Some people have fast twitching muscle fibers and some dont.
If your asking for an even playing field then people using testosterone to get to the "NORMAL" levels is the closes you are going to get to it. They just need to increase the testing so no one abuses it. And Dana White said he is working on that so there we go.
But technically speaking there will never be a completely even playing field. Nature has a way of randomly screwing some people. The way i see it TRT can fix some of those mistakes. Ofcourse abusing TRT is a different story and im against also. Unless everyone can abuse it.... then im for it.
