You can never prove anything on the Internet unless the person has a public record or you personally know them. I tend to believe the stuff you've described as much as I believe a dating profile. However, I can say honestly that I've had some tremendous gains in 3-4 months that would sound much like what you described above but I'm a deconditioned, trained person who was on a comeback and even though what I've gained sounds impressive on the surface everything is still well below my PRs. I've also seen other people in the same situation do the same so I know I'm not a special case, just one that is unusual but reasonable when you know the background. So I guess some of these could be possible if the person is just deconditioned and making a come back or on some serious drugs. I'm sure much of it is a lot of talk too. It can lead to some very unreasonable expectations for the young and naive but this type of locker room bull certainly isn't new and will never go away.
I have come to the realization that some folk are just freaks. Some are geared differently than others - drugs or not - it's just to be accepted, not revered or envied, just accepted. Some use a lot of drugs. Some use a little bit. Some use none. I honestly don't care which "camp" they're in. I just enjoy the sport, the fun, and the training. But I don't like liars or people who claim to be in one camp when in fact they are not.
Quote from: Arden Cogar Jr. on Jan 13, 2010, 09:50 AMI don't think it really lessens the fact that a person is lifting a car even if they are taking chemicals to do it. The fact that they can do it is impressive in itself but I certainly agree there needs to be transparency. To be able to do what some of these guys do in this and other sports requires genetics, hard work and dedication no matter what their drug bill or else any kid could make it by just juicing. It would be great if we could at least admit publicly that it is part of the sport so it could be dealt with better for the health of those involved.I've never used so it has always limited my potential but I don't hold grudges for those who do. If I was in a position that a needle in my ass was the difference between stocking shelves and making millions I know what I would say, "Pass the alcohol swab, Doc!"
