Deca Durabolin Video

Known more commonly as “Deca,” deca durabolin is an injectable steroid with a long and relatively positive history. It has been used to effectively treat HIV+ and AIDS and is known as a phenomenal steroid for building muscle mass. Deca Durabolin is often used in combination with other steroids such as Tren — this is made possible by the use of Dostinex which allows these two anabolics to be used together [even at the same time] without worries about hormones such as testosterone getting thrown way off balance.  Read more about Deca Durabolin

Lawyers move for dismissal of 10 charges on Barry Bonds’ steroid case

Posted By

barry bonds steroidsBarry Bonds’ legal team is on a roll again as they move to have 10 charges dismissed on the former Giants outfielder’s new indictment.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports the latest on the Barry Bonds’ legal battle:

In documents filed in U.S. District Court in San Francisco, Bonds’ lawyers asked Judge Susan Illston to dismiss 10 of the 15 charges of perjury and obstruction of justice contained in an indictment handed up in May.

Seven charges should be dismissed because the prosecutors asked Bonds “fundamentally ambiguous” questions when he testified before the grand jury that investigated the BALCO steroid case, wrote lawyers Dennis Riordan and Donald Horgan. The lawyers claimed other defects in three other charges.

A hearing on the matter is set for Oct. 24. If Bonds prevails, he would go to trial in March on five charges of perjury. If convicted of perjury and obstruction, he faces a maximum sentence of about 24 to 30 months in prison, legal experts say.

This is the second time Bonds’ lawyers have tried to pare down their client’s indictment.

During his December 2003 grand jury appearance, the 44-year-old Bonds repeatedly denied that he had knowingly taken anabolic steroids sourced from the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative in Burlingame and from Greg Anderson, Bonds’ personal trainer since 2000.

On November 15, 2007, Bonds was indicted for both four counts of perjury and one count of obstruction of justice stemming from the government investigation of BALCO. Bond’s legal team objected, complaining that the indictment was “impermissibly accused Bonds of telling as many as five lies in a single count”, according to San Francisco Chronicle.

Subsequent to Judge Illston’s agreement with the complaint, the prosecuting team sought to correct the problem with a new indictment. The new indictment charged Bonds with 15 felonies for the same set of alleged offenses.

The defense’s second set of objections was about the questions the prosecutors had posed to the controversial slugger. Bonds’ lawyers said the questions “often were impermissibly vague and confusing”.

As an example, Bonds was accused of perjury for answering “no” when asked whether he had been taking “anything like” steroids in 2000. That count should be expunged, the lawyers argued in the filing, saying the question “utterly fails to reasonably identify what substances can be deemed ‘anything like’ steroids.”

Clenbuterol Video

Clenbuterol Video

Clenbuterol (often called just “Clen”) is used by athletes and bodybuilders for it’s ability as a beta-2 agonist. It therefore stimulates your beta-2 receptors, which in turn help you to lose fat by allowing your body to release and burn more stored fat. Clen has been used for literally decades in the foreign veterinary world, for increasing the lean yield of livestock. It is clearly a very effective agent for this purpose, although its long half life and tendency to stay active in the body for long periods of time mean that vets in the United States aren’t able to use it. This is also the reason why (although it’s an asthma medication) it’s not available to asthmatics in the US of A. Albuterol is Clen’s shorter acting cousin, and that’s the FDA’s drug of choice here. But in the world of athletics, Clenbuterol has a much longer history of use.   Read more about Clenbuterol

Austrian hurdler gets lifetime ban for steroid use

Posted By

Elmar Lichtenegger steroidsElmar Lichtenegger was banned for life on August 27 by the Austrian Athletics Federation. The 34-year-old hurdler has tested positive for doping twice since 2003.

The anabolic steroid nandrolone was found in his system November last year at a training session. In 2003, he tested positive on the same banned compound and received a 15-month ban because of this doping incident.

Lichtenegger can appeal AAF’s decision at the arbitrary committee of his country’s anti-doping agency. However, he is not expected to contest the decision since he has already retired from the sport last year, soon after he tested positive for nandrolone the second time.

In both instances, Lichtenegger blamed bad nutrition supplements for the positive result.

Lichtenegger’s best result was winning a silver medal in the 110 meter hurdles at the 2002 European indoor championships. In 1999, he achieved his personal best time at 13.33 seconds in Athens.

Hurdling is a type of track and field race. There are two categories of hurdling – sprint hurdle races and long hurdle races. The sprint hurdle race is 110 meters for men and 100 meters for women, both with 10 hurdles. The long hurdle, meanwhile, is 400 meters for both men and women also with 10 hurdles to be ran over.

Randy “HGH” Couture ready for a comeback fight in UFC before yearend

Posted By

Randy Couture

It looks like Randy Couture and the Ultimate Fighting Championship is finally patching things up.

It was reported that Couture, the UFC’s reigning heavyweight champion, could fight for the promotion by year’s end, an indication that their legal battle is reaching a resolution.

Couture’s future fight could be a part of an out-of-court settlement with UFC. One source close to the fighter said that the fight could be Couture’s ticket to walk away from the organization without legal entanglements.

It is unclear at this time, however, if UFC will be amenable to Couture’s concession.

The 45-year-old fighter resigned from UFC in October 2007 based on several issues. Apparently, Couture was dissatisfied with the treatment and compensation he received from the organization. Also, Couture has also some issues over UFC’s failure to sign Fedor Emelianenko, who was a free agent then. Couture had wanted to fight Emelianenko, the number one ranked heavyweight champion. Zuffa LLC, UFC’s parent company, believed that Couture has two more fights as per his fight contract.

In February this year, Couture signed a contract with HDNet Fights promotion, which later filed a suit against UFC in a Dallas district court to obtain a declaratory judgment regarding the contractual status of Couture, nicknamed “The Natural”. A Texas appeals court, however, decided in favor of Zuffa earlier this month. The court conditionally granted UFC’s request for a stay against the motion.

For those of you who don’t know, Randy Couture claims to the name, Randy “The Natural” Couture, but with his big head he’s obviously abusing human growth hormone (HGH). It’s easy for him to use a lot of HGH since there was to real testing for human growth hormone (HGH) for many years, and there is no real tests for HGH to this day. HGH testing is not like anabolic steroid testing.

Winstrol (Stanozolol) Video

Winstrol (Stanozolol) Videos

Winstrol (Stanozolol) is a really interesting variant of Dihydrotestosterone. It’s been modified at the A-ring (there’s 4 rings on steroids usually), to make another whole “ring” called a pyrazol group. There’s only one other steroid I’ve ever seen that has a similar modification. Winstrol is a commonly used anabolic steroid for cutting cycles, and certainly it’s been shown clinically to not elicit any really impressive weight gain (if any at all) (1). It’s usually seen as a less expensive alternative to Anavar. And just like Anavar and other DHT derivations, it can not convert to estrogen at any dose, and is not progestenic.  Read more about Winstrol (Stanozolol)

Monetary incentives can tempt athletes to use steroids

Michael Phelps used Steroids?

Michael Phelps used Steroids?

This maybe a cynical view but money is indeed a great motivating factor nowadays. It has been reported that one of the reasons why athletes risk their career and health and use steroids to win is money. And an athlete, who’s an icon in his/her sport, can receive sponsorships that amount to millions of dollars.

Take a look at Michael Phelps. Phelps is a now a hot and global commodity and we heard he is receiving a whopping $1 million dollars from Speedo as a bonus for a job well done in the recently concluded 2008 Olympics. Phelps, along with several Olympic swimmers, wore Speedo’s LZR Racer in Beijing. The LZR Racer swimwear has been dubbed as the “most hydro-dynamically advanced swimsuit to date.”

“When I hit the water, I feel like a rocket”, said Phelps of the LZR Racer in February when the suit was officially introduced. “I can’ wait to race in it, this is going to take the sport of swimming to a new level.” And when he did race in it, he delivered jaw-dropping (jaw-dripping, to some) performances.

Reports also say that aside from that huge bonus “The Barracuda from Baltimore” receives around $5 million dollars a year for various endorsement projects. Of course, we’re not saying that Phelps had used steroids to win eight gold medals in Beijing Olympics. Our point here is an athlete, who wants to be at Phelps’ shoes (or flippers) right now, can be tempted to use performance-enhancing drugs for monetary incentives.

Well, here’s the (very good) business side of sports from SBN.com:

All that glitters is gold when it comes to Michel Phelps and while he may not be buying a stairway to heaven, Michael Phelps future includes millions of dollars in endorsements. Today in part V of Sports Business News week long Michael Phelps series SBN will focus at Phelps relationship with Speedo as part of the look at the marketing machine that is Michael Phelps and take a look at the world wide interest in Michael Phelps.

Phelps relationship with Speedo began before the 2004 Athens Games. As will be the case later today when Phelps date with destiny arrives at the 2008 Beijing Games, Speedo offered Phelps a $1 million bonus if he won eight gold medals at the 2004 Games. Again he’ll collect that overdue $1 million bonus later tonight.

As you we all know, Phelps won his gold No. 8 in medley relay.

And there’s more.

Crain’s New York Business Friday reported that New York literary agent Scott Waxman invited publishers last week to bid on a memoir by the 23-year-old world record breaking swimmer, who has become a global sensation in Beijing.

The agent set a $1 million floor for the bidding, and wanted offers right away, which suggested to some publishers that he already had an offer.

And more.

Phelps along with James Bond and a handful of other ‘personalities’ has the designation of being an Omega Ambassador (there are a total of 13 and the list also includes retired Olympic gold medal swimmer Australian Ian Thorpe) Phelps relationship with Omega (one of the IOC’s 12 TOP sponsors) dates back to the 2004 Athens Games.

Steroids work

Posted By

In the months leading to the Beijing Olympics, a handful of athletes had tested positive for steroids and other illegal substances. Those athletes had been disallowed to join the Summer Games.

During the duration of international multi-sport event, which officially started on 8th August and ended on the 24th, six athletes had been found out to have used illegal performance-enhancing drugs. The six athletes were disqualified and/or stripped of their medals and could face a ban from their respective sports. Apparently, doping is a risky business, and the big question is why do athletes insist on using steroids?

Professional and Olympic athletes use steroids for the simple fact that steroids work.

To some athletes, the beneficial effects of steroids outweigh the deleterious ones.

Steroids can cause feminization symptoms in men – growth of breast tissues and testicular atrophy. In females, virilization symptoms can occur, such as hair growth in other parts of the body and clitoral enlargement. In both sexes, acne breakout and infertility can be possible side effects of steroids.

But these synthetic hormones can also make one bigger, stronger, and faster.

A Reuters article in 2007 explains how steroids work.

“It’s not just a question of improving muscular strength and recovery,” said Jay Hoffman, chairman of the department of Health & Exercise Science at The College of New Jersey and a former National Football League player who says he used steroids. “Hypothetically, there’s a good chance that taking anabolic steroids will have a chance to make you faster and quicker,” Hoffman said in a telephone interview.

In September, article physicist Roger Tobin of Tufts University in Boston said steroids could help baseball players hit 50 percent more home runs by boosting their muscle mass by just 10 percent.

He said 10 percent more muscle mass would help a player swing about 5 percent faster, increasing the ball’s speed by 4 percent as it leaves the bat.

“A 4 percent increase in ball speed, which can reasonably be expected from steroid use, can increase home run production by anywhere from 50 percent to 100 percent,” Tobin said.

Given these statistics, it’s of no wonder why athletes in diverse sports resort to steroids to give them an advantage over their opponents. It has been reported though that steroids alone will not create winners. There is no substantiated evidence that even ultra-high doses of popular steroids will cause muscle and strength gains. Steroids can promote muscle growth and strength if taken along with intensive training and proper diet (preferably a high protein diet). The training should be carried out before and during steroid intake.

The paradox of steroid testing

If we’re to consider public opinions, we’ll see that no matter what anti-doping officials are able to achieve in their quest to minimize, or ideally to completely eradicate doping, in sports there will always be the skeptics and the cynics to deal with. This is to say that there will be sectors that view the Olympics as a sport spectacle speckled with doped-up athletes.

Since the Beijing Olympics officially wrapped up just a few days ago and as the grandiose venues begin to collect dust, there is the customary review of the events that transpired on the latest Summer Games and one of which is anti-doping programs that have been implemented.

There are those that say the small number of athletes who tested positive for steroids and other performance boosters might signify that many others were able to skirt detection. Of the 4,500 tests conducted in Beijing, only six were caught committing doping violations. Still, others are of opinion that the more doping busts is equal to more skepticism about the cleanliness of the Olympics.

According to the Sportingo article, the idea that only a few but high profile scandals have unfairly tainted the Olympics might not be completely true. It says there are many doping incidents that continually happen in diverse sports. However, since these incidents involved less known athletes they are not given widespread media coverage. Such incidents do happen “on a regular basis” and the “numerous bans of more obscure athletes only serve to re-confirm the public perceptions of the pervasive nature of steroids in Olympics and in sport.”

To further illustrate the point, the article provides this paragraph:

“Hungarian weightlifting silver medalist Ferenc Gyurkovics and Puerto Rican wrestler Mabel Fonseca were expelled from the games today after testing positive for steroids, the International Olympic Committee said. Gyurkovics, 24, tested positive for oxandrolone, the IOC said. He competed in the 105kg class and set an Olympic record by lifting 195kg in the snatch on Tuesday, but finished second to Dmitri Berestov of Russia in the overall totals. Gyurkovics was stripped of his medal by the IOC executive board. Ukraine’s Igor Razoronov will now get the silver, with Russia’s Gleb Pisarevskiy moving up to bronze. Fonseca, 32, tested positive for the steroid stanozolol.

Ukrainian Razonorov was later tested positive for nandrolone and became the sixth and last athlete to be expelled from the 2008 Olympics.

The numerous bans being issued also contribute to public’s awareness that games are tainted and steroid use is an “open secret” amongst Olympic athletes, trainers and coaches.

They train together, and share the same burden of pressure to gain a competitive edge. How many are using is unclear, but there is certainly no doubt that all athletes are conscious and aware of who is using or from whom they can get anabolic supplements or a steroid program for enhancing performance and building muscle. It is surely as simple as “asking around.”

Additionally, there is also the prevalence of systematic doping, i.e., use of performance enhancers are no longer exclusively practiced by “a single Olympic competitor… (steroid use) pervades an entire Olympic team, such as the example of the Polish weightlifting team in 2004.”

Five members of the Polish weightlifting team were disqualified from joining the Athens Olympics because they tested positive for banned substances.

This … is an example of how not only individuals but entire teams can be on steroid programs, and even sponsored by the state. This example is presented to establish that the cynicism in public perceptions of steroid use among Olympic athletes is completely founded.

Also, one may have noticed that there are many different kinds of steroids, and the fact is that as of now there may be no limit on the amount of steroids that exist, from those that have not been deemed performance-enhancing as of yet, through those that are designed to mask detection, to the ones that are already on the list of banned substances, a continuously and rapidly growing that officially numbers in the hundreds.
