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.
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.
I replied in bold, to the bolded statement. Of course I meant Testosterone is a Steroid Hormone, because it is.
People currently doing it are elevating them beyond normal levels.
I believe TRT users ARE steroid users. Just as I was a steroid user when I was on nasal steroids. The difference lies in what you are using them for, and whether you are abusing them or not.
Natural is the keyword. If you're not naturally producing the amount of Testosterone it takes to be competitive in a combat sport, you shouldn't be doing it.
"Increase the testing so no one abuses it" - Bingo. Exactly what I want.
Your last sentence...
" Ofcourse abusing TRT is a different story and im against also. Unless everyone can abuse it.... then im for it."
is exactly what I said. Although I'm as much against everyone abusing it as just a handful of fighters. Everyone abusing it would just tarnish the sport as a whole.
I know the playing field will never be level, which is why I used the word naively in relation to my hopes of seeing such a thing. I just think the playing field, when the use of TRT is so obviously shady, skews the playing field to an un natural level.
