So this video is Overeem’s hearing with the NSAC in which he was granted his license.
So if i followed correctly, between June and the end of 2012, Overeem was tested a total of 7 times, 2 of which i believe they said were random. All tests came back negative. He actually says he has gained a few lbs since his last fight. So all the sherdog haters that expect him to come in looking like 2006 Overeem against Big Foot are gonna be sorely disappointed.
What do you all make of this? They said the tests included both blood and urine. My knowledge of how easy/hard it is to mask PEDs is next to nothing so maybe someone can enlighten me if they believe thats the case. Or do you think he really is just genetically gifted and has a good frame for carrying that kind of mass.
I suppose if we are being realistic, one could easily argue that at his height, it would not be terribly difficult for a natural (i know he’s on TRT, i use the term natural liberally) to be able to walk around at 260 lbs at 10% bodyfat. Combined with Overeem’s obviously good genetics for bodybuilding (giant traps, huge bicep peaks, wide lats)it shouldnt come as much of a surprise if he wasnt on steroids. (im not saying i believe he isnt using, just saying its not outside the realm of possibility)
I think the thing people really have a hard time believing is that someone who has to dedicate so much of their time to martial arts training and cardio/circuit training can still find the time to build that kind of mass as a natty. If martial arts training 6 days a week could make anyone look like that guys like Joe Lauzon would like more like Gleison Tibau.
Anyway, not really sure where im going with this.
