    My gym is next to an industrial estate where a fair amount of Polish immigrants work. In the evening they usually come to the gym and I'd guess the majority of them are likely on some sort of AAS.
    Apart from that there are a few gym bros who take pro-hormones, I'd say around 40% of the people who train there are on gear.

    0%, but then it's my garage.

    Something like 2 million steroid users are in the UK, in a population of 70 odd million.

    That suggests it's a widespread issue.

    If anyone is on at my gym, it certainly isn't obvious.

    There's one fire hydrant at my gym - obvious user.
    He puts up serious numbers.

    Couple other guys are possible.

    Then there's another dude and I know he uses but, the way he lifts, you wouldn't think it.

    Outside of that, most in my gym are nancy boys and bitches - so I'm pretty sure the majority don't use.

    There's a :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek: subculture at the gym I train at though.


    I used to train at another place and I'd say a good 30 % of users injected.
    The owner used to sell the shit for pete sakes.
    I think he was cutting it down with some shit though cause, some guys were getting reports of liver damage from their GP's.

    I hate training alongside assholes that outlift me just cause they're on gear, then act like johnny big potatoes.

    I got to a community center since it's cheap. Most of the guys there are 40+ and are pretty chill. None of them are on gear it seems. There is one guy in his late 20's that comes in every once in a while who might be on something but swears his gains are because of the Herbalife shit he tries to sell everyone.

    My garage gym... I do roids, so they're quite common.

    Maybe a couple of guys but most don't I would say. I know a few have said they have considered doing a cycle.

    maybe one or two on gear, the gym is used by everyone from kids to senior citizens, some big guys using it, but the gym I used 10+ years ago, had a sharps bin in the toilet, that was just full of monsters.

    No problems, I'm 6'6 an got plenty of room, sometimes I put some smaller weights on the inside to spread it out a bit.

    If I were doing it again I'd get all Olympic but I had like 300k+ in 1" so I use it for all the dumbell shit and can have 6 or so set up at different weights.

    Quite common, but some days it will be seemingly all nattys. There are gyms in the city (usually closer to the beaches) where steroids flow freely and hordes seem on.

    Mostly oldies live near the gym I go to though so you get mainly natural old timers (some of the women however I’m not so sure of, we seem to get some of those insta-slut lifters too). Quite frankly the city is infected with the juice and more often than not we have multiple people on in the gym at any time however.
