so what were the judges, judging before arnie competed? the era of when he was around mdiea was taking off globally so the combination of the two probably contributed to the attatudes in media circles of what people should asscertain to in there opinion.


agree but it's a long story
Steroids were invented to help unhealthy and uderdeveloped people .
Now 20 year old kid can't f**k a girl without viagra beacause abusing stereoids .

Better look back where and when everything has started . Some people made millions and Arnie became the face of the muscle fashion . Good marketing .


At least when Arnie's image promoted PED's he was a clean living hard trainer. Today you have a load of pumped up pricks on Jersey/Geordie shore etc half repping the s**t out of their 10kg dumbells on the preacher pad then going out sniffing whatever gets put in front of them and fighting.

It is what the media has done to society making it appear that the social norm it to have a six pack and decent size guns. THAT is what turns average people to using gear, just like it's the reason why young girls starve themselves to try and attain an unattainable waif life body


Yet despite all this media pressure we are still sleep walking into an obesity epidemic.

I think steroids can be used safely. Unfortunately though a lot of guys just jump on the wagon and take anything giving to them without any knowledge. I know a young fella in my gym supposedly used a full bottle of test on one day with hardly any cycle experience. He ended up in hospital, fool!

Very true. Maybe McDonalds marketing is just that bit better than the social pressure to look ripped and muscular.

In all honesty, I think Wigan hit the nail on the head in his first post and that usage increases is because of a multitude of reasons.

True but if it wasn't Arnie it would be someone else . Weider brothers needed someone to promote and populate bodybulding culture . Olympia reign , Holywood movies , Pumping iron .. perfect business strategy .

Do really think it's any worse now than before? People don't change.

This research has come out as a result of that Kid who was in the news last week who apparently died from use. That's all. It gets people talking and sells.

It's always gone on.

yes but to just blame Anrie for being in the right place at the right time is unfair.
what would you have done being in his position?

Just heard this on the news... apparantly 70,000 uk users.

More sadly, 1.5% of these people have contracted HIV as a result of injecting steroids. If that figure is correct - how bloody aweful Unhappy

I was talking in general about Arnold and how things gone to roid generation .

Here are some thoughts of Greg Valentino . Not the most respected guy but said some well known things .

In terms of bodybuilding Arnold never had the best genetics .

How did anyone ever end up in hospital jabbing 10ml of test? Was it laced with arsenic or something?
