Probably total nonsense, but there were rumors flying around in this regard that were on some of the wports radio shows and it would not shock anyone's mind to find out that Clemens' workouts were/are just as much nonsense as Bonds' are. But in his case, he has managed to really avoid any serious suspicion.
Do you have a link for this?
It's all over the web and was discussed ad-nauseum.

There is an SI article supposedly debunking it at:

But you have to be a subscriber to getthe whole article (which I am not). I am sure there are other articles on this. I am not saying any of this is true, just that the theory has been out there and it is not out of the realm of plausible.
