    Red face pro bodybuilder and cost of steroids?

    how pro bodybuilders manage money .they spent on steroids ?
    because sometimes it goes up to 40000$ per year or more(i m not sure)? do they also get sponsorship from steroid maker pharmaceutical companies?
    and how rookie pro manage this,coz usually they dont get sponsorship?

    If you are not sure, then why pull the $40,000 + a year out of your butt and knock the other responder!

    The answer to your question is first drugs are not 40K. And the other responder already said it through promotions, appearances, contracts, pics, or in some cases escort services or whatever. Just depends on how creative a bodybuilder is at appealing to fans and how high his standards are.

    Your mom must have given you that 1 rep on your profile because most responses I have seen when you post neither piss people off or lack content in every way.

    Alot of pros can't even afford to send $40,000/yr on gear. What exactly would you be putting into your body to send $40,000/yr.

    In actuality, it would be much much less than that.

    One, your body can only take advantage of certain amount, if it's over that, it's just a waste. Pro bodybuilders should know this better than anyone. So for them to spend $40,000 on steroids when they know more than 2/3 of that money is just wasted in the toilet or something, just does not make sense at all.

    Two, like someone mentioned, a lot of pros, even the ones doing ok, just cannot afford that sort of money on roids alone. Even if they make over $80K (for the argument sake), which is not too bad (Lee Priest was only getting ted over $100K from Twinlab, think about it), they do not have $40K for roids. They need the money for living expenses, food and others.

    Three, WHO CARES!

    I've never seen a more bogus and skewed interview. That thing is so wrong it's not even funny. I HIGHLY doubt there are many IFBB pros who do gay prostitution on the side. I can't even believe you posted that.

    no, I believe that interview.

    Pro bodybuilding these days isnt exactly a glorious sport. It revolves around the consumption of illegal drugs.

    And theres probably a handful of pro BBers who do the gay thing. Thats reality. Reality is a twisted fukin deal these days.

    and how rookie pro manage this,coz usually they dont get sponsorship?
    Questions - When was the last time you heard a Pro talking about what brand of juice he is using? And when was the last time you seen a steorid advert that wasn't some dodgy e-mail?



    PS: please stop making threads, unless you have a very ****ing good question too ask or have atleast half a clue as too what you're talking about!Thanks.

    It may be a load of crap, but that article has been thrown around these forums a lot as fact - which is probably why he posted it. Similarly with the mid to high 5-figure sums for yearly drug costs - I've seen them posted a lot as supposed fact.

    Note, I have no clue what most pros spend a year on gear, and I really don't care. Just making the point that these facts and figures weren't made up by guys in this thread...

    Can't help but think this guy's getting smashed a bit much... the question of yearly gear cost has been discussed fairly regularly around various forums here, and I've never seen anyone get slammed for asking the question. Agree with your P.S. but can't say this thread is any worse than the ten "Poll: Who's better, Ronnie or <insert BB'er here>" threads a day that get posted here...

    well...let's just be objective here.

    $40k is about $770 per week.

    in the article it says $60k...about $1150 per week.

    that's staying on year round...no "off" time. this might very well be an accurate portrayal of a typical year (the time on, that is).

    let's stick with the lower number. $770 PER WEEK. wow.

    if you have any idea what the cost of gear is...there is pretty much NO WAY to come up with that number. i will conceed that I don't have a clue how much GH costs, but considering how many people I know that use it, I doubt it's as pricey as the numbers I've seen thrown around.

    in all reality, these guys probably get their drugs for free. I would assume that they mark up the price of everything they sell and make a huge profit on top of getting whatever they need at no cost.

    Depends on if you cycle year round. If the rumours of Andreas Munzers last cycle are true, I could see that guy spending those sorts of dollars per week - but it was something like a 14 week cycle, and then it was finished. Or, more accurately, he was.

    that interview is from the back of a volume of Iron man mags encyclopedia of bodybuilding series. Ironman mag is notoriuosly anti drug and pretty much a HIT training platform. its nbot a bad mag but think about where the articles from and what its in the back of? a natural traing encyclopedia that mentions nothing about the drug aspect except for how horrible it is. the infos good but much like flex it doesnt cover everyhting and in this case goes so far as to use pro pics while also saying dont do this, but look at there pics anyway. long story short the only way i think it mioght cost that much is with GH and possibly a life extension/ HRT company hook-up.

    Well the article is from '97 and he's not only referring to gear but also hgh and igf.

    If the pro's are willing to break the law every day of the week, where they'd be looking at around 15years or more of hard time I wouldn't be ruling out gay for pay.

    put it this way i know a guy who was selling test enanthate (enough for 500mg a week for 10 weeks.......20mL at 250mg each) for 200 bucks, and thats vet grade and evne that is a bit more then ive heard about. either way one could quite easily run a base of 1,000mg test for 10 weeks and pay less then 400 bucks. it would be less then 40 bucks a week for a large portion of most peoples cycle. throw in some other stuff and it really just comes down to the cost of GH. id say this interview is possibly true but in any case most certainly the absolute extreme amongst the pro's. i remember flex wheeler saying he used to get drugs from fans all the time. off doing a tour of foreign countries and fans bring him all kinds of stuff as gifts. somewhat risky id say but he claimed it still happoened

    But there are other good points not related to drug intake like:

    "The training is pretty much beaten to death. In fact, your magazine for the natural athletes is what I recommend. Professional bodybuilding [is about] drugs."

    Makes sense to me. Why would you do the same workouts from someone on a ****load of performance enhancing substances? It obviously isn't going to be of any benefit.
