    I think you're thinking of epo.. its blood doping rasies the o2 lvls in the blood or something like that... anyway it helps your endurance. Crazy hard to get, ive never seen it

    Take your blood out, let it replenish, then through it back in when you want it.

    Taking out your own blood requires your body to replace the lost blood and that would take almost a month. IMO, that could only be considered during the off season.

    If anyone knows/needs info. I am interested

    might be a bit off topic but i think lance armstrong is on the juice or something.. he got testicular cancer when he was what 30 is that just a coincidence or what. his upper body looks alot bigger then the other guys who are all about the leg muscles. the most effective way to become the best is to cheat thats just my theory lol. not taking anything from his achievments amazing acheivements. just my opinion

    there is no question that he isn't "100% natural" whatever that means. EPO is one of certainly a number of other substances he's used.

    but testicular cancer due to juice?? plenty of 20- and 30-something guys get that...and i cant even imagine what the link would be. dont hear of alot of IFBB pros getting it. very likely unrelated.

    Yep it's some ccrazy s**t. One of my friend got into the road racing bikes in a big way a couple of years back. He was only doing it a few months maybe 4-5 and the guy he was cycling with were offering this to him. Some people are just after a quick buck and don't care who they hurt, needless to say he gave it up shortly after.

    Dirt Dawg:
    Yeah, mostly Dutch espoirs died from taking their hematocrit to over 60%. At the top end of the range 53-55 is the ceiling for HCT or you risk sludgiing the blood. WADA (world antidoping agency) has a hct of 50 so most try to hover at 49.9 to remain "legal" and thats how the dopers win everything. It was common practice in the past to find something to give you an advantage and it wasn't til Festina got busted at the 97 TdF that cycling became targeted but it had already been going on...

    moregunsthanroses:
    As far as Lance goes, I've got three words. Bristol, Myers, Squibb!!!

    Hed:
    Eq and almost any anabolic steroid will inceases hct and endurance. I've heard of even reaching the 53-55 ceiling using AAS. Test enanthate at low dosages.

    PM me so I can meet with your buddies training partners.
