  Arnold Schwarzenegger Shares His Views On Anabolic Steroids

@Arnold Schwarzenegger, the former governor of California and the Austrian-born former actor, has no fears or ashamed of using anabolic steroids during his years as a champion body builder.  In fact, we have speculated in the past about what Arnold Schwarzenegger cycles used.

Schwarzenegger had remarked in the past that he has no regrets about using performance enhancing drugs as he used them under the supervision of a doctor and steroids were very much legal at that time. The former seven-time Mr. Olympia however said he would not encourage use of steroids as that will send a wrong message to children but added that he has no problems with sportsmen making use of nutritional supplements and other legal substances for improving their performance.

Born on July 30, 1947 as Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger, the Austrian and American former professional bodybuilder began weight training at the age of 15 and won the Mr. Universe title at age 20 and went on to win the Mr. Olympia contest seven times. Nicknamed the “Austrian Oak” and the “Styrian Oak” in his bodybuilding days, Arnold Schwarzenegger chose bodybuilding over football as a career at the age of 14 and won the Junior Mr. Europe contest while serving in the Austrian Army in 1965.

His first attempt to Mr. Olympia failed when he lost to three-time champion Sergio Oliva in 1969 but won the competition in 1970 to become the youngest ever Mr. Olympia at the age of 23. At the age of 23, the bodybuilder captured his first Mr. Olympia title in New York in 1970. He played the role of Hercules in 1970′s Hercules in New York and was followed by director Robert Altman’s The Long Goodbye (1973) and Stay Hungry (1976) but his rise was primarily attributed to his profile in the bodybuilding film Pumping Iron (1977). In addition to this, Schwarzenegger appeared in the sword-and-sorcery epic Conan the Barbarian in 1982 that was followed by a sequel, Conan the Destroyer in 1984 and then made a huge impact with director James Cameron’s science fiction thriller film The Terminator.

His autobiography/weight-training guide Arnold: The Education of a Bodybuilder was published in 1977 and became an instant hit. In 1977, Schwarzenegger admitted to using anabolic steroids which were legal at that time and said he used the performance enhancing drugs to maintain muscle size while on a strict diet. He added that his use of steroids was for muscle maintenance when cutting up and not for muscle growth.

Schwarzenegger’s personal records include Clean & press – 264 lb (120 kg), Squat – 215 kg (470 lb), Deadlift – 310 kg (680 lb), Clean & jerk – 298 lb (135 kg), Snatch – 243 lb (110 kg), and Bench press – 200 kg (440 lb).

Legacy of Schwarzenegger is commemorated in the Arnold Classic annual bodybuilding competition and he is considered as one of the most important figures in the history of body building. Arnold has presided over many contests and awards shows besides being a prominent face in the bodybuilding sport long after retiring.

 Scott Miller: Giambi and MLB

 

The American professional baseball first baseman with the Colorado Rockies of Major League Baseball was born on January 8, 1971 and was the American League MVP in 2000 while with the Oakland Athletics.

He was named one of the Top 10 Most Superstitious Athletes by Men’s Fitness. In the year 1992, he was drafted by the Oakland Athletics in the 2nd round in 1992 and spent the 1993 season playing for the Modesto A’s, the Oakland Athletics’ single A farm team. In 1995, Jason Giambi made his major league debut in 1995 with the Oakland Athletics and led the team in 1998 with 27 home runs, 110 RBIs, and a .295 batting average.

Jason signed a 7-year $120-million deal with the New York Yankees on December 13, 2001. Giambi hit his 300th career home run off of Esteban Yan of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on July 31, 2005 and ended the 2005 season leading the major leagues in walk percentage (20.6%) and leading the American League in walks for the 4th time in his career (109), and in OBP for the 3rd time in his career (.440, as well as in fly ball percentage (47.7%).

In 2003, the baseball player admitted before a federal grand jury in 2003 that he used anabolic steroids and human growth hormone, according to transcripts of testimony.

The former American League MVP told the grand jury investigating the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative steroids case that he made use of anabolic steroids obtained from Greg Anderson, the personal trainer for San Francisco Giants star Barry Bonds. He described the products received from Anderson “undetectable” steroids known as “the clear” and “the cream” and added he injected human growth hormone into his stomach and testosterone into his buttocks.

“The clear” is a liquid drug that is administered under the tongue a few drops at a time while “The cream” is a testosterone-based balm rubbed onto the body. Anderson described “the cream” and “the clear” as “an alternative to steroids, but it doesn’t show on a steroid test,” Giambi said. Jason Giambi also apologized for using performance enhancing drugs his career. Jason’s younger brother Jeremy, a former Oakland outfielder, also told the grand jury that he injected banned drugs received from Anderson.

Steroids Were Found In Body Of Chris Benoit – cliff notes

Dr. Kris Sperry, Georgia’s chief medical examiner, has revealed that professional wrestler Chris Benoit, who killed his wife and son before hanging himself, injected anabolic steroids not long before he died. The medical examiner also said the son of Chris was sedated before his death.

The 40-year-old wrestler, who was nicknamed “The Rabid Wolverine” and “The Canadian Crippler,” as found dead with his wife, Nancy, and 7-year-old son, Daniel, on June 25, 2007 in their suburban Atlanta home.

Toxicology tests found drugs in all three Benoits, according to Dr. Sperry, who said elevated levels of steroid testosterone were found in the body of Chris Benoit and the anxiety drug Xanax was in the body of his 7-year-old son, Daniel.

The elevated level “is an indicator that he had been injecting testosterone, but how much, how frequently, how often and for how long is something that cannot be answered through this,” Dr. Sperry said.

According to investigators, anabolic steroids were among prescription drugs found in the home of Benoit. The urine of Benoit had about 10 times the normal level of testosterone, which is a form of doping in sports. The wrestler’s body also had traces of hydrocodone, a pain reliever, and Xanax and no other steroids were found.

Chris Benoit’s Last Match

The employer of Benoit, @World Wrestling Entertainment, made a statement that the professional wrestler had passed a random drug test in April.

The family physician, Phillippe Astin, M.D., who prescribed anabolic steroids to Chris Benoit in the year before the double murder-suicide went to trial on March 16, 2009 though there was not even a single charge related to anabolic steroids against him. The doctor faced charges of distributing and dispensing approximately one million dosage units of painkillers and stimulants classified as controlled substances, which included Percocet, Oxycontin, Demerol, Lorcet, Ritalin, Vicodin, Xanax, Klonipin, Methadone, Ritalin, Adderall, Dexedrine and Soma “for other than a legitimate medical purpose and not in the usual course of professional practice.”

Chris Benoit was identified by DEA Diversion Investigator Anissa Jones as an “excess purchaser of injectable steroids” during a federal investigation of Rx Weight Loss in Marietta, Georgia. Prescription records obtained from Jones Pharmacy in Fayetteville, Georgia suggested that Chris Benoit was prescribed 10-month supply of testosterone cypionate every 3-4 weeks from May 4, 2006 to May 9, 2007 on the prescription of Dr. Phil Astin.

In February 2006, Benoit received steroids from Signature, based on a prescription by Florida physician Gary Brandwein. The steroid pharmacy was also supplying anabolic steroids to top wrestlers Randy Orton, Charles Haas, Jr., Adam “Edge” Copeland, Robert “Booker T” Huffman, Shane Helms, Mike Bucci, Anthony Carelli, John “Johnny Nitro” Hennigan, Darren “William Regal” Matthews, Ken “Mr. Kennedy” Anderson, Eddie “Umaga” Fatu, Shoichi Funaki, and Chavo Guerrero.

Over a period of approximately 30 months between December 13, 2004 and June 22, 2007, Chris Benoit was prescribed 5,580 tablets of Lorcet (10mg), 3,600 tablets of Xanax (2mg), and 1380 tablets of Soma (350mg) while 3,690 tablets of Lorcet (10mg), 600 tablets of Xanax (2mg) and 240 tablets of Soma (350mg) between June 6, 2005 and May 30, 2007 to Nancy Benoit, his wife.

  Meadows Handed Euro Indoor Gold

After @Yevgenia Zinurova was one of three Russian athletes banned for doping, Jenny Meadows has had her 800m silver medal at the 2011 European Indoor Championships upgraded to gold.

The Russian Athletics Federation handed a ban of two years to marathon runner Nailiya Yulamanova and 800m specialists Zinurova and Svetlana Klyuka. All the three sportsmen will now miss London Olympics. Meadows would also be missing this summer’s Olympics after not being selected in Team GB’s athletics squad. The 31-year-old who lost out to Zinurova in Paris in 2011 when the Russian passed her in the home straight had suggested before a team announcement that she will be making an appeal if not selected but have decided not to fight the decision.

Russian trio Yulamanova, Zinurova and Klyuka were also suspended for “abnormal indexes in their biometric passports” in addition to doping charges, the first time Russian athletes have been banned for such offences. The 31-year-old Yulamanova finished second in the marathon at the 2010 European Championships in Barcelona. She was awarded the gold medal after Zivile Balciunaite of Lithuania, the original winner, was disqualified and banned for using steroids.

The suspensions of Yulamanova and Klyuka have been backdated from February 2012, while the ban of Zinurova, the 800m indoor European champion, began in September 2011.

Jenny Meadows runs superb 800m at Aviva Indoor Birmingham and breaks national record of Holmes

 The suspensions mean all threw would be ineligible to compete at Russian championships in Cheboksary, and therefore cannot compete at London 2012.

“This is the first time athletes have been suspended in Russia because of abnormality of their biometric passports,” said Russian Athletics Federation president Valentin Balakhnichyov. “We know such practice has been widely used in cycling but unfortunately it’s now been the case with our athletes as well.”It’s a huge loss for our team but their guilt has been proven beyond doubt.”

  Roger Clemens Verdict – The Needle And The Damage Done

Posted By
Pin it Share on Tumblr

Former Major League Baseball starting pitcher, William @Roger Clemens (born August 4, 1962), nicknamed “The Rocket” and popularly known as Roger Clemens, was recently acquitted from all charges against him. The baseball player was facing one count of obstructing Congress, three counts of making false statements, and two counts of perjury.

Born on August 4, 1962 in Dayton (Ohio), Roger Clemens was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in the 1st round (19th pick) of the 1983 amateur draft. He made his Major League Baseball debut on May 15, 1984 and won seven Cy Young Awards (he won the AL award in 1986, 1987, 1991, 1997, 1998, and 2001, and the National League award in 2004), an MVP and two pitching triple crowns. The baseball player also won The Sporting News Pitcher of the Year Award five times, was named an All-Star 11 times, and won the All-Star MVP in 1986. He got his 1,000th strikeout as a Yankee on August 18, 2007 and is only the 9th player in MLB history to record 1,000 or more strikeouts with two different teams.

The verdict may have allowed Clemens to extend his long career as one of the greatest and most-decorated pitchers in baseball history, but the verdict was a clear blow to the legal pursuit by the government of athletes accused of illicit drug use. Moreover, the clean chit given to Clemens also raised questions on the purpose, credibility and execution of the Mitchell Report on steroid use in baseball that mentioned his name 82 times. In the report, former Yankees trainer Brian McNamee stated that he injected Roger Clemens with Winstrol (stanozolol) during the 1998, 2000, and 2001 baseball seasons.

60 Minutes Does a hit piece on Roger Clemens

The verdict also brought an end to the testifying of convicted drug dealer Kirk Radomski that he supplied human growth hormone to McNamee for a starting pitcher and even sent a shipment to house of Clemens. Radomski however had no ideas whether or not the HGH was specifically used on Roger Clemens. Debbie Clemens, Clemens’s wife, admitted that she received a human growth hormone injection from McNamee though the versions of both (Clemens and McNamee) differ over when the injection was administered and whether or not Roger Clemens was present at the time of HGH administration. The verdict also suggested that steroids actually work and they can be extremely beneficial to obliterate home run records or win gold medals.

It also indicates that steroid users are more likely to succeed and can still come out clean and sportsmen who do not take anabolic steroids would always find it difficult to compete against them.

The charges that Roger Clemens may have used anabolic steroids and human growth hormone during a career spanning 24 decades and producing 354 victories have been brought down by the verdict, but many still feel that he was not as clean as portrayed.

Actor Charlie Sheen has revealed that he took anabolic steroids while he was shooting for sports movie “Major League” to get the grip of the game.

Sheen played Rick “Wild Thing” Vaughn, a flamethrower with an edge in the worst-to-first baseball film, “Major League.” The actor is also friend with admitted steroid user, Lenny Dykstra.

Sheen kept his bad boy image mostly on film and his admission in this week’s Sports Illustrated comes at least semi-unexpectedly.

The former “Two and a half men” star added he used anabolic steroids during filming for three months, but soon realized the downside of performance enhancing drugs.

The Anger Management star continued that he had a smart trainer who was a defensive lineman in the National Football League and knew enough sportsmen using steroids.

  Benefits Of Using Anadrol

Posted By
Pin it Share on Tumblr

Anadrol is one of the very few steroids that are admired globally when it comes to improving lean muscle mass, protein synthesis, nitrogen retention, aggression, and performance in as short as six to eight weeks

A huge majority of athletes use Anadrol during a steroid cycle of six weeks though some increase the cycle duration to a period of ten to twelve weeks, though this is unusual.

The fact that this anabolic steroid ointment doesn’t bind well to the androgen receptor makes it an excellent addition to any bulking steroid cycle since the steroid will not be competitive with other bulking steroid drugs for the receptor sites. The suggested dosage of Anadrol is 1-5 mg on a regular basis for a period of six weeks or as per a practitioner’s guidance. The steroid ointment is generally stacked with Boldenone, Nandrolone, and testosterone during a steroid cycle of 6-8 weeks. Anadrol use is not suggested to men with breast or prostate cancers, women with breast cancers and hypercalcaemia, and expecting or breast feeding women.

This steroid ointment should also not be used by those affected with serious hepatic malfunction or having sensitivity to the medication or any of its substances. This anabolic steroid ointment is normally not suggested to women as it can cause virilization in some cases though a doctor may suggest its use to women who are already hormonized.

Anadrol abuse can lead to adverse reactions, such as nausea, diarrhea, queasiness, sleeplessness, and swelling. In case any of these adverse reactions or any other problem is experienced after using Anadrol, use of the medication should be instantly discontinued and healthcare guidance should be desired at the first, without any wait. The steroid ointment must be stored at a controlled room temperature of 20° to 25°C (68° to 77°F) with excursions permitted to 15° to 30°C (59° to 86°F) to maintain its shelf life and efficiency and should be covered against unwanted use, direct light, heat, and moisture.

The US Anti-Doping Agency issued lifetime sports bans to three former staff members and consultants on Lance Armstrong‘s winning Tour de France teams for drug violations.

Luis Garcia del Moral, a team doctor, Michele Ferrari, a consulting doctor, and Jose “Pepe” Marti (team trainer) were banned and worked for Armstrong`s U.S. Postal Service and Discovery Channel squads.

Moral helped riders use banned blood transfusion techniques besides helping them use banned performance enhancing drugs including the blood-booster EPO and steroids, according to USADA. The team physician from 1999-2003 could not immediately be reached for comment by telephone or email.

USADA said Marti, of Spain, who worked for the U.S. Postal Service, Discovery from 1999-2007 and then Astana, helped in delivering performance enhancing drugs to riders in Europe and helped with injections.

The ban blocks them from participating in any sport that falls under the World Anti-Doping Agency code even though none lives in the United States, says USADA.
