I've never done steroids and I'm not asking for information on how to. I simply have a question. (duh)
I recently read a very old article of a cyclist who did steroids to finnish the tour de france. He was a good cyclist before he did this.
He went to a life extensionist doctor and got testosterone injections along with HGH and a few other drugs. The entire cycle wasnt covered in much detail. However discussion of the results and how he discussed his cycle with bodybuilders was. Mainly how he was "picked on" for being such a wuss as he dosed very low. However he claimed everything from increases in mass, fat loss, improved eye sight, better skin and hair, sex drive, etc.
So iam curious, if these claims are accurate why do bodybuilders dose high? When there seem to be decent life enhancing effects at low levels? Is this simply a difference because a bodybuilder is trying to support a larger mass while an athlete is using it to enhance recovery between things like conditioning workouts? I cant find anything on the net about steroids affecting other aspects of performance then raw muscle mass.
It allmost looks like bodybuilders use of steroids has corrupted athletes use of drugs in mentality. Much like how they used to structure training programs for athletes by body part.
Please enlighten me.
