Sure, you keep telling yourself that to make yourself feel better, bro. Fact of the matter is, your ass can't handle shit on your own. I never said steroids make you a better fighter, you assumed that on your own damn imcompetence. Steroids DO create an added level of testosterone (in short, if you're a *****, you lose your pre-fight jitters and lax, calm composure), and also yes, the regenerative cycle is sped up but ALSO in addition to that it allows you to push past your own average or normal capacity of lifting/reps (spoken to me byy various different people whom were all on steroids), and this allows you to damage your body further which doesn't matter due to the regenerative cycle. So you can pump more, work out to keep your cardio up, study up to reduce, minimalize, and/or completely negate the side effects, and in short, you're working very hard to get the "extra help" you need because you straight up can't cut it on your own.
Look, whether we're "buying into the media" or you just can't admit to yourself you're a steroid=freak trying to justify yourself for being stupid, there's a reason it has been banned, a reason it is illegal, and there's a reason Tim Sivlia lost his title for being caught on it.
And it's even beyond MMA, as you said yourself. And I hope they find and prosecute every punk-b**** who thinks they can get away with it. If there's nothing wrong with it, why do you have to "get away" with it? If it's only a supplement, why would try to sneak past drug screenings with it and why do you need it if it is against the rules? Why fight so hard for something perfectly okay? If they banned Gatorade, would drink gatorade and try to evade a piss test just because you like Gatorade the "the electrolytes that quenches thirst better than water" (damn im thirsty now)? It's retarded.
BTW- I don't know if I can control this thread to this extent or not- but don't start name calling, that's childish, adolescent, and pointless. Thanx.
