Let me preface this post by saying:
I do not have a problem with steroids. I do not personally use them, but I do not have a problem with them and honestly just wish they would legalize them, especially in sport.
I am not one of those people who generally sees something amazing happen (in the realm of athletics) or who sees someone yoked to the gills and automatically thinks, “Juice.” I know that hard work, dedication, consistency and smart training/nutrition goes a long way.
All that being said, I’ve had a lot of free time on my hands lately and thus have watched quite a bit of the Olympic games, and I really am just sitting in awe at how many records are being toasted. And it’s not just Michael Phelps. It seems to be all over the place. If it’s just a couple of records here and there, I wouldn’t ask, but seeing as the situation is at it stands:
Is there a new designer steroid out there right now (or several) that many people are completely unaware of? I thought pretty much every possible anabolic/androgenic compound had been discovered or tried out at this point . . . Did someone find another “lost formula” sitting in an old, dusty chemistry book from the 1960’s again, a la Patrick Arnold and THG?
Despite the fact that I don’t use, I still follow the chemical game somewhat (I can’t help it, having obtained my undergraduate degree in a science background; I find it fascinating,) and I’m just curious as all get out.
