Yes they do. I would estimate that 100% of all professional body builders use steroids and I would go as far to say that 90% of the athletes that compete at the national amateur level use anabolic steroids. Obviously, few of these athletes are admitting to steroid use, especially at this point in time. Anabolic steroid use has never been more of an antisocial behavior than it is right now, and the stigma is getting worse all the time. Professional bodybuilders have to stand out and say that they denounce the use of the very drugs that helped them achieve their current status or they face serious consequences. The point of being a professional body builder to begin with is that they have reached a level of notoriety that is synonymous with marketability.
Through seminars, posing exhibitions and endorsements, the professional athlete turns all of his hard work into financial success. All of that is in serious jeopardy if that athlete has been branded with the stigma of using illegal and banned substances to reach their position.
Thus, you will see nauseating hypocrisy in athletes at that level, not only in bodybuilding but in many sports where the athletes are idolized by their fans and the general public. Many professional bodybuilders have sincere intentions when they condemn the use of anabolic steroids in athletics, as they recognize the enormous abuse potential for these drugs when placed in the hands of ignorant individuals. I would criticize their actions further if I could honestly say that I would not do the same thing placed in their position
As a bodybuilder it's hard to agree with that "most" of us are using any steroides. You can read what my bb friends think and see that many just say no to these drugs. Hoever the temptetion is there and the fear of side effects is the leading cause for me and others not to touch it. From what I'm hearing around me people just wish for a "safe steroide" but there is nothing like that and never will be as there are no shortcuts in life.
no need to prove it
once you enter the bb game, you'll know that steroids are the must
it's point of no return, unless you don't want to make money from bb world
