I didn’t want to hijack Jana’s thread…so I wanted to start one on a topic I’ve wondered about for some time (the Topic came up on Jana’s “Cory Everson Nude” thread)…
Okay…Cory, Anja, Marjo, Janice, Lisa?
The list could go on and on with the ladies of the 80’s and 90’s world of Female Bodybuilding…big for their time…but smaller than many FIGURE competitors today.
I DON’T want to make this a question of who was “better” …but certain facts cannot be disputed…MANY (not all) of the ladies today are showing more than ever the effects of huge (comparative) amounts of AA’s and polypharmacy use (GH, thyroid hormone, Clen, insulin, etc.)
My questions are these:
Did the ladies of that earlier period “choose” to not use large amounts of anabolics and polypharmacy…or did they just not have the knowledge/availability/“balls” (or desire) to take drugs at the levels needed to acquire the physiques you see today in FBB?
Were doses of AA’s SMALLER or the SAME…and that what we see today is actually the effect of all the ADDITIONAL drugs in use?
If you have time, could you give us an idea of what may have been a typical cycle for say a Ms. Olympia Competitor of that time compared to today? (I realize that you are out of that game now, but I just wanted a GENERAL idea).
4)I just wanted to ask Jana’s question here one more time…would it be possible for a woman today to reach the comparable build of those ladies of the 80’s and 90’s naturally, given our greater knowledge of nutrition and supplementation? (And for any of you smart-ass hacks…I’m NOT suggesting that an OTC supplement or enough consumed chicken breast could be “just like Deca”…)
As always…thanks for your time, TC!
