what happens to competitors when they come off ?

are they FU**ED for life and do they have to use HRT etc ....

    Check out Flex Wheeler before and after his kidney problems (I'm guessing he wouldn't be on gear anymore):

    I think the after actually looks beter!

    Raw dead Lift 320kg
    Raw bench 171kg
    Shirted bench 200kg
    Amateur cage fighter @ 95 - 105kg

    i think it is quite likely that flex is still on gear (lower doses mind you, but i'm not buying that flex is 100% clean now)

    they say flex has a myostatin con dition so he is naturally more muscular than your average joe. whatever he has/had amazing genetics.and more flexible!!
    so he is bound to be bigger than most of us clean!!
    read in MD this month he said he only used 3 sust per week till the olympia stage- mtaking that with a pinch of salt but hey he is a freak!!
    and yeah wouldnt be too sad if that was all i could acheive look wise.

    he also said the gear was nothing to do with his illness,from the doctors mouth. has anyone read his book yet?

    thats bull****


    whatever he has/had amazing genetics.and more flexible!! so he is bound to be bigger than most of us clean!!

    flex was 140lbs before he started steroids at 19, steroids certainly played a huge role in his size, but don't get me wrong, his worked his arse off to get where he got to, but without the juice i couldn't see him getting into the 200's

    read in MD this month he said he only used 3 sust per week till the olympia stage- mtaking that with a pinch of salt but hey he is a freak!!

    which olympia is that for? maybe the 2002 olympia? but before that he was on all sorts of drugs, he ran roids solid for 2 decades, mentions both dianabol and deca in his book, and at the 1999 Mr. O he was well up there with ronnie, personally i felt flex should have won


    and yeah wouldnt be too sad if that was all i could acheive look wise.

    i've read his book several times, its a great read! and yes steroids were nothing to do with his FSGS (kidney disease) according to his doc, apparently it is quite common in afro-american males and is hereditary

    cheers tri.but not neccesary!
    but i gotta hand it to the godman, he is obviously personal friends with the flexy one!!
    just quoting the man from this months mag dude,no need to spit that dummy geez

    quote-"but don't get me wrong, his worked his arse off to get where he got to"........

    actually i heard the opposite, the great yates was supposed to have said he was the laziest bb he knew and was just lucky with genetics!! but everyone knows something that someone supposed to have said!!

    i,ll also agree on the evidence of that pic and others flex should have won that year!!

    carnage- not harsh just keeping it on a level!
