Drugs in sport

I've never taken AAS, and don't intend to, but I find the science behind them fascinating, especially in sport. I'm trying to find a good read that will explain about the use of AAS/GH etc. in sport and the reasons behind it, but tend to find nothing but anti-drug websites and media hype. The last research paper I read about GH use in sport said that GH was used in bodybuilding and other sports but the authors were unsure why this was the case .

Does anyone have some links to good websites/research articles/books etc. that 'tell it like it is', rather than the usual line of 'drugs are bad m'kay'? Alternatively, can you guys explain what athletes in various sports would tend to use, and for what reason?

Cheers all, hit me with some knowledge :).

    proffesional athletes get paid to train correctly, eat correctly & rest lots. you dont need drugs wen you've got that.

    for average joe, training is just a hobby which has to be done around work, family etc and cannot train, eat & rest as much as pro's do.

    plus they get all their supps for free, lots of money to spend on food...good food 2!

    ahh i wish i was a pro!

    So there are no drugs in the NFL?

    No drugs in Premership football?

    No drugs in professional rugby?

    etc, etc. .



    I submit that you are very much mistaken.

    HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Performance enhancing drugs misuse in power and strength sports (field & track ect) is massive. Even our very own Dwain Chambers has gone on record stating this fact. Didn't Lynford Christie somehow get away with having a healthy dose of nandralone in his system? Loads of athletes get away with it because they are lucky and smart.

    Appreciate the replies guys, but can we avoid a debate on whether or not there are drugs in sport and keep to the question of...

    Does anyone have some links to good websites/research articles/books etc. that 'tell it like it is', rather than the usual line of 'drugs are bad m'kay'? Alternatively, can you guys explain what athletes in various sports would tend to use, and for what reason?


    Cheers!

    agreed there is drugs in sport.

    not all are on it tho.

    NFL defo on it and i have my suspitions about alot of rugby players too.

    AIRBOURNE, i think u hit the nail on the headabout the lucky and smart. i was readin an article on a rugby player, a youngster i wont mention any names. but he had a proffessional contract and they wanted him to bulk up. so he was hittin the weights hard 4 3 months and not playing. if hes not playing, he cant get tested and if hes not gettin tested for at least 3 months, he might have bin on somethin. if he has i wana know wat becoz he is a beast now!!!! but i'll never know...unless he a MT member!

    There were some books on exrx about the use of AAS in sports - http://www.exrx.net/Steroids.html but I haven't read them myself. I did read some of the pages on the US amazon site, it looked alright. I was really after a use primer rather than a description of sports use
