Lance Armstrong Steroids

The story that has shook the world. Im sure you've questioned why it's taken me so long to respond to do an article about Lance Armstrong steroids. Well this is quite easy. Because I think the story is getting far too much publicity and shows the unintelligence of the general community. You know how old I was when I recognized that men like him were on steroids? 16 years old. I was competing in Olympic lifting, I went to a nationwide championship and after successful was requested if I’d like to represent my country in the Olympics. “Of course I would”, I almost screamed out. they knowledgeable me of the need to take steroids, it wasn’t kept hidden, and they didn’t try to tell me it in secret. I was told straight to my face “Everyone in the Olympics is on them, it’s easy to keep them covered up” (and yes, it is) I’ve passed steroid tests by the same committee that independently tests for the Olympics. I was on tren, Testosterone, deca, dianabol, HGH, and IGF-1 and I passed. Just to give you a bit of advice there! Anyway continuing on with this story further. Almost every top athlete is on anabolic steroids in most sports. I see the casual guy rolling his eyes now, But who do you need to come out and tell everyone? Top American football coaches, yep, already happened. In fact over 12 coaches have now come out and claimed that the NFL is full of steroids. Some condition up to 97% of the professionals are on steroids. But that is not good enough for you? How about baseball? A sport plagued with steroid use that we all know about. What about running? You don’t believe Usain bolt is on steroids? A guy who is not only breaking record after record, but his own team mates have made “suspicious” statements about? See my point. Steroids are part of life in sports now and so they should be. You want to see men lift 1000s of pounds? You want to see men running faster than anyone you’ve ever seen, jumping higher, you the community demand more and more out of these athletes, wanting almost super human feats, we expect the best every year, better than the last and this is what we get. The only people to blame for Lance Armstrong taking steroids is the community. Fact. Do I care that Lance Armstrong took steroids? No. He is still the Greatest bike owner in the world by far and I applaud him for this. Lance Armstrong has ended years of denials by admitting he used performance-enhancing drugs during all seven of his Tour de France wins. It makes me laugh that the sponsors of his are demanding their money back again and wanting to take him to courtroom. I have trained a number of athletes who have Big Sponsors, I’m heading into the multi-million dollar companies, and even billionaire companies, and they were told “Take steroids but don’t get caught.” Now I don’t know if they did or didn’t know about his involvement with anabolic steroids, But I’m certainly sure his sponsors didn’t care in the slightest. They have still had Maximum exposure, in fact more now than they ever had when he was successful, Everyone even men who hate cyclists are talking about Lance Armstrong and steroids now. I personally feel Lance Armstrong is being victimized, as most steroid users are. After Lance Armstrong admitted last week to taking steroids to help him win the Tour de France bicycle race seven times, many other athletes are thinking about how that decision affects them. Some local residents say Armstrong elevated $10 million for charity, so it was good that he gained those races. But they also point out that Armstrong broke the rules by taking steroids, and that is why he was stripped of the medals he had gained. A guy who elevated 10 million for charity, Produced more publicity for cycling than anyone else in the world is being treated this way?.It’s preposterous. Quite frankly, it’s stupid. Another thing that really amused me with this Lance Armstrong steroids scandal is yesterday, a former sports man was on Tv, he was claiming that Lance Armstrong should be ashamed of himself. He knows 1000s of athletes who have “used steroids” just to end the race. “I can respect those,” he said. “Using steroids to participate isn’t that bad. But using them to win is a whole different story.” What!?!? I’m sorry, but this is the attitude of a loser. You are willing to take anabolic steroids to participate but not win? How is that even logical? Let’s place him in a ring with a Boxer, or MMA fighter who is on steroids, and give him enough to participate and find out what happens. Let’s look at the facts. Lance Armstrong is the best bike owner in the world, fact. He’s better than the others who took steroids. He worked Hard, no one worked as hard as him. Yes, he used steroids, and he did it to make a lot of money. But he also elevated a lot of money for charity. He changed the lives of millions of people, He made individuals more healthy and got more involved in cycling. Overall I salute Lance Armstrong and I apologize to him on behalf of the community that is now prosecuting him. Until next time I hope you enjoyed this article about Lance Armstrong steroids. I plan to do many more like it and had a great amount of fun doing it.

Touching on the role proper nutrition plays in successful recovery.

Kenneth Langston's curator insight, October 16, 3:49 PM

Nutrition is a very important aspect of everyday life and the same can be said with Physical Therapy. With an abundance of diets, diet pills, and miracle shakes on the market, it is often tough to decide on the right nutritional plan for you. Some of the things you can do is find a plan that is going to work for your and your lifestyle. Make sure to eat breakfast. Eat an array of different colored foods. Maintain portion control.

Steroid use can be categorized under both professional and personal ethics as far as personal use and abiding to rules and regulations prohibiting it's use.

Jamison Fausett's curator insight, February 8, 2014 11:52 AM

While I strongly disagree with the use anabolic steroids, I think the way we look at steroids as a society could be adjusted. From my own research there is many positive benefits that could come from the use of Human Growth hormone.
