    Most pros from the 70s don't speak very much or very openly about their steroid use . It is documented that Arnold called dianabol the "breakfast of champions," but otherwise he claims he only used steroids for dieting during competition to avoid muscle catabolism.

    When you hear the kind of cycles these guys were doing, you have to doubt the honesty of their accounts. Some of the cycles I remember hearing about don't even make any sense. They were so mild they would only suppress natural testosterone levels , while providing less androgen than is naturally produced. That would be a muscle loss cycle.

    Naturally, I don't doubt that the pros of the 70's used less gear than today's pros.

    Speaking of Arnold...

    My brother just bought me the 25th anniversary of Pumping iron for x-mas. It's on DVD and the never-before-seen footage is just priceless. Also, there are interviews with all the guys and where they are now. Having just been to the Olympia in Vegas and seeing Arnold, Ferrigno, Columbo etc., this was the most awe inspiring video I've ever seen. The original Pumpin-Iron video has been my like my bible since I was in high school. If at all possible, get the 25th anniversarry edition. You can probably find it online. I know it's a little off-subject, but anybody reading this thread is probably intereested in Arnold, so I felt this small commentary was appropriate.

    I should have made the question a bit more generic.
    Compared to todays steriods and cycles which are normally massive for Pro bodybuilders. What was usually the Juice of choice and how much they took back then in Arnolds hay day.

    I have done 2 cycles in my past, but i really want to build a cycle based on what the oldtimers took and how much they took. this is the info i am looking for

    thanks!

    We all know that just a hand full of dbol does not make 22'' arms and 52'' chests. But seeing we are on the subject just doing dbol and the workout routines they used and some of the execises how the f@!k did they get so big? They were pioners making it up as they went how does this work

    I didnt think of it at the time but I have the pi on dvd and all the terminator movies. In a couple interviews with Arnold and Jim Cameron, Arnie is skinny as hell. But when it comes time to look the part 6months later Conan. I know Arnie stays in resonable shape all the time but T-3 he looked awsome. Besides hes 54 years old how the hell does he do it

    i'm going to start a whole new thread on this later (when to start juicing) but anyway here goes:

    i think arnold got that big because he started juicing at such a young age... now before you all blast me at least consider this:
    is it possible for the male body to be some how "expecting" great increases in testosterone from ages 12 or 13 to about age 20?... therefore allowing the testosterone or whatever other steroid that's being used to work rather than downregulating the receptors and hindering the gains? just think about what i'm saying. when we take steroids (when i say we i'm assuming we're all at least 20/21) our bodies gradually adapt to them and we stop growing after taking them for a while; the reason we only do them for a certain number of weeks.

    has anyone read anything about this? i mean, look at pics of arnold when he was in his mid teens, he was definitely juicing then by judging by the size of his chest.

    just some food for thought guys... i didn't start until i was 25 just to be safe but if i had to think it over again i might have done it younger.

    Is it necessary to be strict with your diet or should there be things to avoid or make sure you get enough of?

    depending what you want is how your diet should be.
    But usually you want Moderate Carbs, High protein, Low fat. try to also Eliminate sugars from your diet.
    and eats lots of good healthy calories.

    Swelled check out the diet section and all your questions will hopefully be answered. You should never touch gear unless your diet and training are in check.

    why wast your money on gear if you are more worried about partying and drinking. all that fun stuff can come later when you are 25 lbs bigger.
