Drug Abuse - Ronnie Coleman

This is what can happen if you take copious amounts of steroids, growth hormone, and insulin -- and have a defective myostatin gene. Twisted and somewhat gross. But Ronnie Coleman won 8 straight Olympia titles (Jay Cutler won the last two). Fortunately, for those twenty or thirty people who still care about bodybuilding, the judges are leaning more toward symmetry than pure bulk.

This was Arnold at his prime:

Looks a little more human -- and how many of us would like to look. That's why he is still considered the best ever.

Ronnie is a disgrace to bodybuilding. His gut alone should've disqualified him from the Olympia when he turned to full-blown GH/IGF1 abuse after 2002. And he was incredibly dishonest about it too. 2 thumbs down for him and his white but equally bloated counterpart Cutler.

I agree completely, Joe.

I miss the days when Arnold and Frank Zane were the ideal of a powerful physique.

People abuse substances such as drugs, alcohol, and tobacco for varied and complicated reasons, but it is clear that our society pays a significant cost. The toll for this abuse can be seen in our hospitals and emergency departments through direct damage to health by substance abuse and its link to physical trauma. Jails and prisons tally daily the strong connection between crime and drug dependence and abuse. Although use of some drugs such as cocaine has declined, use of other drugs such as heroin and "club drugs" has increased.

im honestly a natural bodybuilder but i still manage to appreciate ronnie coleman. gh/insulin/steroids are a part of pro bodybuilding these days and if u were to bring arnold thru time put him on stage today with wot ronnie is on.. ronnie will beat him, big ron coleman is the greatest ever make no mistake.. just coz ur personal taste clouds ur judgement, doesnt mean he isnt, if u really know what ur talkin about and know what to look for in a bodybuilder u would know this. p.s ronnie doesnt look at his best in the video, he is guest posing and not as condition as he would be at an olympia

You forget Arnold took massive amounts of DBOL to look like that also, please dont tell me your that Naive to think he was natural are you?

william harryman said...

God no - Arnold admits his usage, BUT he wasn't doing growth hormone, insulin, and prostaglandins, or the sheer amount of drugs current bodybuilders take - so their physiques looked closer to what we might get if we worked hard.

Abuse of steroids or other growth hormone drugs are very dangerous. It has a side effects or it can lead to death.
