    You can't see them but there is a Motorhead and Darkthrone flag, too.

    From the amount of weight on show, they aren't working.

    300 ohp would be legit as fuck. I got up to 255 before I tore my shoulder. 45 pounds is long way to go though.

    Roids have become widespread in Poland and my gym is no exception, sometimes the guys swap pill packs in plain sight. Most are so swole they can't scratch their own backs.

    I go training early in the morning, before work, so it's always the same regulars minus a couple new guys/gals from time to time.

    I'm quite amazed at the number who are obv users. Out of the 10-12 regulars, I'd say about two third are on something.

    But I'd only ask one or two of them for advice, because most of them have huge zits across their upper backs, and a couple should go see a doctor because I don't think it's a good sign when your face is consistently red as if you just ran a marathon. And I don't think any of them compete, at least based on their physique (none of them would have anything to do on a stage).

    From what I can tell, all the guys who work the counter are on something. Seems like it's a prerequisite to getting the job.

    I couldn't tell you numbers but I have a 17 year old child in my house and he is quite open about how ridiculously easy it is to obtain such drugs, and how widespread it is within his peer group.

    It's really common in smaller gyms. As I was growing up. A gym opened up near our school so approximately ~60-70% of guys were on juce.
    I live in eastern europe country, btw.

    So when people starts to defend fighters like Fedor or other russians fighters - it instantly puts a smile on my face. Like, everybody on steroids!

    It's less likely to meet a steroid user in more public gyms.
