@Geoff: so people are “fucken idiots” if they think The Rock used steroids? I’m terribly sorry to be the one to give you this reality check, Geoff, but you’re in dire need of it, so here goes; I’ve been doing bodybuilding for more than 15 years and I can tell you from my own experience that a lot of the stuff that you see on “natural” stages is often not natural at all – you should really get a grip on reality. Sadly enough, quite a lot of the “natural” guys (I wouldn’t say the majority) do a cycle during the off season and try not to test positive during the competitions (which has gone wrong on more than one occasion). I don’t have a problem with people using non-natural bodybuilding regimes, not at all, but don’t take part in natural competitions if you do, that’s all; go for the non-natural competitions or simply don’t compete. Furthermore, most of the “natural” bodybuilders are not bigger than the Rock; they might be more cut, true, and you might confuse this with “being big,” but most of them are definitely not bigger, volume- and mass-wise. And as far as the Rock’s steroid’s usage is concerned: he apparently admitted to this himself (which, again, is not a “bad thing” in my opinion; to each his own, after all), just check (for example) http:///articles/140046-dwayne-the-rock-johnson-says-he-used-steriods-is-it-just-his-era-that-used .
Basically, you pump so much testosterone into your system that you rob your gonads of purpose, they lie dormant for the duration of your steroid cycle. And while I knew this would happen, the physical sensation was beyond horrible. I felt this rude clenching inside my scrotum, like a pair of tiny hands had grasped the spermatic cords and tightened into fists. It happened that fast – like a door slammed shut. ‘No more testosterone!’ my gonads cried. ‘Closed for business!’ I sat up, gasping, clutching my testicles to make sure they were still there. In a few days time they had shrunk to half their normal size: plump ripe grapes.
