    Who here thinks George Leeman would be pulling 900lbs without gear? I rest my case. Thanks for playing, gentlemen.

    A lot. That's the point. It makes you stronger than you already are or have the potential to be, so I don't understand what you mean when you say it doesn't make you strong. Obviously genetics matters too, but it does make you strong(er).

    I remember reading a few studies were the intervention group who was on anabolics actually gained more lean muscle mass sitting on the couch than the other group who actually did resistance training. As I recall, they performed equally in their 1RMs. Nevermind the increased recovery and other benefits. I'll see if I can dig them up tomorrow.

    There are also people who take steroids and aren't strong at all.

    So, put that in your pipe and smoke it!

    There are also people who lift weights and don't really get stronger, right? But we say stuff like "Lifting weights makes you stronger" all the time. Lifting will make you stronger, if you do a few other things right. It's a correct statement even though there are some additional conditions hidden away there. Presumably gear is in a similar category.

    You think it's because of the gear? It's because he cries before lifting.

    Looks like he should lower the weight.
