The problem is that most people think they're training hard and smart when they're not, and are looking to use AAS as an easy fix. This is why numbers are used as a gauge of how hard and smart they're actually training.
Someone totaling 800 is either not training hard, or is too early in his training life to have encountered plateaus that require seriously figuring out his body's response training and diet and adapting them to overcome these plateaus.
If he's serious about this lifestyle, he would have found a way to overcome stalls in training and his results would show it. If he's not, why start AAS on a whim when he's probably not going to be doing this after a couple of years?
This is not about paying your dues.
This is about very basic common sense.
