It's truly annoying how dishonest the roid-users are. I don't mind that the aussie-roider lied that he doesn't use (he has to, it's illegal in the usa, and you go to jail). This guy is not only on roids, he's bigger than what most people can achieve on just steroids, he's probably using growth hormone too (at least).

But, the BIGGEST lie steroid-using bodybuilders say, and this guy said is that "you can't just take stuff and grow muscle without training".

The truth is, a study was done on this. A group of steroid users sitting at home DOING NOTHING AT ALL gained 3x more muscle than guys busting their ass off in the gym training hardcore.

Let me repeat... By just taking steroids and LYING AROUND and doing NO ACTIVITY they gained more muscle than the group training their butt off naturally.

Of course, the group taking steroids AND training gained the fastest, but only a bit faster than the steroiders lying around. That just proves that the steroids do the most of the work.

Hummm, after seeing women like Maria,it raises the question for me uh at what point is a woman no longer a woman.hormonally when a woman take steroids they can increase there testosterone level to the same amount that men have.So is this still a women? having the parts of a female but the hormones of a male.It's like a new gender of humans not male or female.It's like a science project going wrong.I personally think there is nothing wrong with females building there muscals but when the women take steroids it really destroys there femininity...

That Maria chick reminded me of the Trans-gender inmate Louie interviewed in San Quentin.

Louis always makes his subject look bad in a sneaky way, and yes most of the stuff he is after is easily shown to look substandard. So if one can put that aside, he is pretty funny and willing to try just about anything. He did have a tummy tuck on one of his past video, although he didn't achieve much with that. The married girl sure makes you wonder if she really is a woman. To say that the world is conditioned to find woman like Claudia Schiffer pretty is a reality but to say that we are conditioned to find these woman ugly is pushing it...let's face it there is nothing natural about their look. Working your every muscles to that extend seem to stiffen your face too, i did not see one pretty face in the whole gang although i suppose some used to be quite pretty...and i also saw a lot of boobs job.
I believe a woman who goes to the gym, exercise a lot, eat healthy and stay off those drugs can achieve a very nice look if she knows the limit to overdoing it, though it appears to be addictive. I think the world of body building is a bit like the world of plastic surgery, one eye fix turns into many more, people seem to loose a sense of natural beauty.
It is a matter of taste...beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
I have often asked woman what do you like in a man's physic...i heard nice smile, beautiful eyes, straight back, nice bum, long legs...never or very rarely have i heard body buider!
