I'd like to get some feedback from all the experienced guys.
What would be best way to manage PED cycling for a competitve strength athelets.
The athlete will be drug tested , once he medals at the national level (simple T-E test). More stringent drug testing will be imposed when he achieves olympic qualifying results. Year around random testing (WADA) if he compete at international level. WADA have recently decided to perform selective testing on old samples, and serve retroavtive bans ( Does it mean Carl Lewis will lose his medals for stimulant usage? probaly not, WADA will use it with geo-political motives) . This have a big impact on PED cycling and selection.
The athlete is currently off the radar, so to speak. He will be trained to a very high level (international) before competing in any events. The plan is to compete in 2011, one year prior to the Olympics. He would perform just above the minimum qualifying standard in all event, try not to get attention from the anti-doping people. He would compete in one major world event 2011 to qualify for 2012 Olympics and get some experience. The main aim would be for the Olympics obviously.
