I recently went out for a steak with a friend of mine who is currently in his 12 weeks of contest preparation in which he hopes to earn his pro card - now this guy is fantastic, around 275 at the moment 6% bodyfat.
We was talking about how things were going and he was asking my advice, mainly nutritional to be honest on dropping more fat as he was beginning to struggle to get below 6% without losing his size - this is his first time you see. Anyway the evening progressed and he was becoming more and more anxious, every time a woman walked past us he would be sucking his stomach and sticking his chest out yet trying not to be see at the same time.
We went back to his place with his girl and i had a cup of tea while he drank water.
He then proceeded to pull out a bag of speed (amphetamine) and rub a rather large amount of it on his gums, i asked him what the fuck he was doing and he explained that it was for fat loss and not to lecture him about it 'every one is doing it'.
Now, i understand, sympathise and participate in PED use but Speed, and around the contest he has vodka and Cocaine??
What the fuck?
Yes, it may have been my naievety (spelling?) but i walked out of his house pissed and slightly upset i guess.
I just wanted to know if i am th oddball here and would like the consenus of things from you guys who i consider my peers and superiors.
I do not drink alcohol
I do not take 'street drugs'
I am not dissing anyone who does but i guess i just thought that if we were so careful with how we use aas and how we eat and train and look after our cardiovascular health we would not do this? Maybe i have just taken the media lines on such things the same way others do on steroids.
Thanks in advance for your experiences and responses.
