    I graduated highschool in 02 and played 4 years of varcity football and never even heard a rumor of even one person who was on, or who could get steroids.

    those numbers are not suprising and likely low.

    track and field likely accounts for a majority... Though certainly sports which yield scholarships will likely have high rates.

    note- some areas of the country will have disproportionate numbers, others very low. Where steroids are prevalent in the local sports community and available, usage will be higher (access and exposure).

    a little gear to get a 20-100plus K scholarship is a small price for many.

    as a note- VERY, VERY few people will admit to taking steroids. In most people's minds steroids are in the same category as crack. Except steroids makes you a mean scary druggie.

    since testing is becoming more prevalent even in high school sports, secrecy is paramount....

    as a note- See guys taking 50-60mg of superdrol a day attacking people that use steroids, even vilifying them. Its a twisted world when someone takes a "legal" super toxic oral steroid, looks down on people that take testosterone a rather innocuous and natural hormone.... just saying...

    Yeah I enjoy the availability of things like superdrol and the first gen prohormones that actually worked pretty good (and were a lot safer than the shit out now) but I wonder if it'd be better off if they were just banned.

    I got badass results from just 20mg of superdrol a day, I have no idea why you'd go up to 50-60mg.

    Seems like diminishing returns with much worse sides.

    I would be crying for my heart and liver at that point. Not to mention you probably wouldn't be able to walk 10 feet without back or calf cramps.

    Apparently my body loves superdrol because I never got any sides from it and my bloodwork looked badass afterwards. Still took every precaution while on it and post though. It's good for rapid strength gains.

    Whatever dude. You think MORE than 5% of teenage FEMALE athletes are taking steroids?!?!?:ugh:


    Id like to ask why you believe that but Im fairly sure that you have no actual data to back it up so Im not even gonna ask.

    I graduated in 98. Played varsity ball Junior and Senior year. I didnt know anybody ON.


    But the real point of my post is that they said 5% of FEMALE teenage athletes take steroids. That is so bullshit that I cant even fathom anybody taking it even remotely serious.

    I know at least 6 people did in my class. I don't know of any females though, that's hard to believe, but not impossible.

    I call a 10' pile of bullshit. I have maybe seen ONE female athlete on my campus, who looked like she was on, and she was a bodybuilder with a disgusting man voice, and all the other tell tale signs of a female being on.... female body building FTMFL.

    Fitness models..... for the fap.

    really depends on how athelete is defined, parameters of the data set. if its just "someone that "plays" a sport" then probably not. If its people who are competitive (varsity sports), then its not unreasonable. scholarship money is a big deal. and the saying "winning isnt everything, its the only thing" applies accross genders...

    though you are correct, its just an opinion. Though survey data on drug use is notorious for undereporting.

    how many cyclists would you think are on steroids... you dont have to be huge or hypermasculine to use steroids (male or female). competitive cycling is replete with steroid use, test suspension is a big favorite.

    steroids are not just good for making you "big", the significantly improve recovery, endurance and absolute strength.

    for endurance atheletes its more about the RBC counts and recovery.
