I have just signed up.
I am really curious about how much does steroids increase strength.
I think high dose of steroids increase strength around 2.5 times.
Maybe this will sound weird, but I definately dont believe it only affects %20-30.
According to this article, only 600 Mg Test E increases strength by %40.
So we know that many top Powerlifters - Bodybuilders etc. use MUCH more than 600 Mg. I've even heard that some guys using 7000 Mg steroids per week.
And bear in mind that, some steroids are much more stronger than Cheap Test E. Like Halotestin and Trenbolone.
So I think it gives you 2-2.5 times strength.
I have proof for that.
Lets look at Ronnie Coleman. Now he is retired, he is not competing anymore so he is not using high dose of steroids. He is natural right now or he is just using TRT dose. Because he is 52 years old and years of steroid abuse much probably shut down his natural production.
Anyway, it is obvious that he lost so much size and strength.
As you can see, he can only Dumbell Bench Press with 80's.
In his prime, he was able to do with 200's !
Ronnie Coleman has one of the best genetics in the world and he struggles with 80's today. And bear in mind that, he has been training with weights for 30 years. Despite training 30 years , nowadays he cant dumbell bench press more than 80's.
Most people are using steroids and than they are claiming "Drug Free".
All federations are crap. Drug test = crap. I dont believe them.
In this link, you can see that Ryan Kennely was using 4525 Mg Steroids PER WEEK. This guy benchpressed 1000 Lbs with equipment and around 650 Lbs Raw.
