Some of those supplements have been known to do a good deal of harm as well... Next time you go to a Bookstore and browse through a Bodybuilding Magazine - a good portion is devoted to advertisement... heck a few ex competitors like Rich Gaspari are also in the supplement business

yes i totally agree,Gaspari Nutrition is HUGE now! but i agree most Bodybuilding magazines are full of supplement advertisements.if you take out all the ad pages,there is only like 5 pages worth of articles.lol Rich should have won an Olympia for sure though.

On a not so completely unrelated note, I sing in an orchestral choir. Each singer is listed in the program and if you have sung in the group 25 years or more you get a '#' placed next to your name. Somewhere on the page it tells you what the # means but it's in small print and hard to locate in the dark. Recently some coworkers came to one of the shows and saw my name printed with the # next to it and asked me what it meant. I told them but now I'm kicking myself because I totally missed the opportunity to tell them that it indicates singers who tested positive for steroid use. Seriously, I crack myself up sometimes. When that brainstroke came to my head I thought of you two.

Yes, I heard that a while ago. I was talking about Barry Bonds some time ago and someone mentioned that they were thinking of adding his name to the Hall of Fame but with an asterisk next to it indicating that he tested positive for steroids. I don't have a dog in that fight at all but it was inspiration for my choir joke.

Wow. I know that drug addiction and alcoholism are really bad in musical circles of all types. Singing is sooo connected by physical well being. I know quite a few opera stars who use. It's pretty bad. I had no idea about the performance enhancing drugs though. I'll watch Tony, thanks for the tip!

I've seen first hand how high school coaches encourage their linemen to "bulk up." So you have kids purposefully overeating, doing only heavy weights, and taking steroids. Not a recipe for good health.

The pressure to get big is even more intense at the college and pro levels.

Ohio State researchers have concluded that many linemen are not healthy.
