I fail to see a practical purpose for being that strong. They look silly and will never use that outside of competition.

Stay out of the thread then. Seems pretty simple to me.

I don't know Eric. Is he on steroids or something? I hope he is doing it all by natural.

And there goes this thread, as usual.

Keep in mind there are many drug tested meets out there. Lots of guys are on juice, and lots of guys are not.

I am learning the powerlifting's world, so could you please bear with me little?

I don't understand when you said there are lot of guys on juice and yet the meets have many drug test over there. How do those guys bypass the test?

I am curious, is it necessary to be on juice to do 700 bench press or we could do it by natural?

Only nonlifters say everyone is on juice, and no one does it natural. (wasn't totally directed at you Glock30Eric)

Some guys do steroids, and some guys do not.

Even in the same meet, there can be drug tested divisions and non tested divisions.

Or some meets aren't tested at all.

Kinda like at a car race there are stock classes and modified classes, but they are all there on the same day.

Got it!

I was wondering.

Is steriod a taboo thing to talk in the powerlifting world? Are they embrassed to say that they are on juice?

Do they have to inject the steriods in their body or there is a different way to get it in the body? Do they have to inject into a legs to make it bigger or it could have the effect on whole body regardless where the inject is shot at?

Aren't the steriods cheap? I don't know where they could get it...

First: Steroids, not steriods.

Drug tested meets do not test every competitor. At $70 per test, it's not economically sensible. When I was competing, they'd usually test the top 3 and/or anyone who broke a state or national record. I generally lifted in a nontested federation because the promoter who put on the meets that were nearest to me was with that fed. I sometimes came in behind guys who juiced, and sometimes I beat them.

Personally, I don't care if someone is using steroids, growth hormone or concentrated extract of cannabis-smoking Rhodesian baby brains. As long as their federation/league rules permit it. It definitely is a matter that belongs within the realm of sports and should not be a matter of law.
