Steroids build up muscle to fast for the tendons and ligaments to keep up...therefore causing lots of damage to joints. I really don't think that many are on steriods...maybe 15%. A lot of it depends on your definition of "steriods"...there are so many supplements out there now...many of them legal...that it hard to distinguish "steriod" and HGH from nutritional supplements. These guys are proffesional athletes and work out for a living...30lbs of muscle in one off-season is obviously a sign of something amiss...but 30-50lbs of muscle over the course of a career is not. I don't give much credit to the 'rookie card' theory.
NO, I'm not a doctor, but I am a science teacher and certified strength and conditioning coach...so I know a little bit about fitness and supplements.
thank you .... I knew we had a few here.
Just a couple of quik questions for ya.
1) If have been searching for months and cannot find anything that supposedly makes your head grow, I also can't find any evedince of Barrys head growing? can you help me here. Heck Barry has only put on 30lbs since he came into baseball. a link, anything?
2) Lets just look at Barry for a minute, since he seems to be the scapegoat for a ton of really ignorant people on this thread,
Is he still on steriods?
Yes, why has he not hit more that 50 homers since his 73...
NO, why are his joints and tendons not falling apart like everybody else?
3) If steriods causes you to hit homeruns, again like all these ignorant people seem to think, why then, when a pitcher takes them, do they not throw 100-105 mph?
actually i have lots of questions ...
Though I doubt we would ever be able to have a serious discussion on this subject since we have many uninformed people with uneduacted opinions on this hot issue ... i just wanna say again, thanks ...
