Bodybuilding "aids" - where would you stop?

by aids I mean things like implants, any other 'unnatural' surgery (eg - adding slabs of muscle, not repairing tears etc), genetic engineering...

There is talk of trying to slow, or halt the ageing process with some Texas oil billionaire pumping millions into research (or was...). There are various advances in genetic engineering and surgery that will only evolve further...

Part of BB - for me - is having the guts, will power and determination to stick at a long term goal and work hard to get there increasing knowledge and discipline at the same time as size and strength. I love BB but I'd feel like scum if I knew my size was just from a magic genetic pill with no weights behind it (I'm not referring to gear here people).

How far would you say is too far in terms of making gains easier and more available to the masses who otherwise wouldn't be in shape?

    bodybuildiong is judged on looks in contests not strength tests.

    hence the use of implants.


    But in real life looks and strength count, so dont use implants.
    u should be strong and look good

    I think I saw that, wasn't it cosmetic surgery live or something? I thought he looked just as sh1te afterwards personally but everyone was saying "wow look how buff you are". Perhaps you'd have seen them if his BF was lower.

    If there was a wonder pill that would make me 200lbs then yes I'd take it, wouldn't bother me in the slightest. I enjoy weightlifting but if I could have the physique for nothing then I'd take it. I wouldn't give up weightlifting though.

    But then anyone could take this wonder pill and being a ripped 200lb would be the norm which is something we don't want!

    well lets put it this way - bbing doesnt just give u muscle it makes u feel better all round

    in the same way as liposuction may remove body fat and make u look better but it doesnt do anything for a persons unhealthy heart does it

    quick fixes are no good - and i know that sounds rich coming from me

    I know this is a controversial statement, but didn't Hulk Hogan have transplants...and at 50 he still looks good.

    He is 51 or 52, and you have to admire a man who has remained so orange for so long.

    Even if there was such a pill you would still have to go to gym and the averge person wouldnt even last 6 months in to get 200lbs of muscle if that was how long it took.
