Are they juiced? Probably, I dont care to be honest. They inspire, regardless. Can you even imagine what 1200lbs feels like on your back, or 900 in your hands? It's a wonder the human body is even capable of sustaining that weight, even with steroids. I've heard big benchers talk abput feeling their BONES flex when they unrack a weight. Who cares if they juice or not? Whats amazing is that the human machine can even handle the strain, even if they've got extra hormones floating around to help them recover from using a weight that insane.
Also, my stance is summed up by Dave Tate when he was asked this question--"i've seen guys who I would swear up and down HAD to be using to put up those numbers--who you could have asked me and i'd have said 'yeah theyre loaded' walk away from a meet and tell me 'hey man, i'm thinking about starting using. What do you think?' ...and i'd just think--wait, what? You did that natural? Can you imagine what he's goimg to do now that he's using?" Like, we're talking 750, 800+ lb squats and shit here. If thry impressed Tate, they can't be tiny weights. That guys seen it all.
Basically, the only people that whine about how "so and so MUST be using!" Are fucking pussies who want an excuse for why they suck balls at life and lifting and being lean. Theyre afraid to do the fucking work day in and out, weekend day in and out, YEAR in and out, thst it takes to get really good and they wanna blame something that makes them feel better about failing and being undiscipline...OR unwilling to think, learn, and open up their minds (you have to be smart to make it past the plateaus and they get worse the netter you get).
Basically, somebody put it this way on another one of these types of threads in Bodybuilding forum. Question: who do you think is using? Can you tell if somebody is using Roids by how they look? & responded sarxastically "Anyone more muscular or leaner than me is using." Lol.
