Schwarzenegger: No Regrets About Steroids
SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (news - web sites), who has acknowledged using steroids during his years as a champion body builder, said he doesn't regret using the performance-enhancing drugs.
AFP Slideshow: Arnold Schwarzenegger
In an interview to be broadcast Sunday, Schwarzenegger told ABC's George Stephanopoulos, "I have no regrets about it, because at that time, it was something new that came on the market, and we went to the doctor and did it under doctors' supervision."
Schwarzenegger has acknowledged taking steroids , but pointed out that they were legal at the time.
"We were experimenting with it. It was a new thing. So you can't roll the clock back and say, 'Now I would change my mind on this,'" he said, according to an excerpt posted on abcnews.com.
The former seven-time Mr. Olympia said he would not encourage drug use because it sent the wrong message to children. But he said he had no problem with athletes taking nutritional supplements and other legal substances to improve their performance.

my urologist was actually involved in treating arnold, she said at one point he was sterile and had a chance of never being able to have children.

It's nice to see that he used them and got him where he is today and he did not bash them like so many other ppl would have or discredit them.

good for arnie....a true bodybuilder at heart
06-06-2006, 04:28 PM #21
yeah, but now he says that we need to crack down on steroid use ???? hellooooo, that seems very hypocritical to me. On one hand he says he has no regrets over AAS use, on the other he says we need to get rid of them.
06-06-2006, 05:25 PM #22
Cuz a lotta ppl think that the only use of AAS is the reason why you can get muscles.......damn wrong.....leading to misuse/personal failure.......
They dunno a goddam thing about that and use it as candies........what Arnie's trying to prevent.......

i understand, too many people who are too lazy to work out hard and eat right think they can shoot up and look good like it's that easy. so many skinny punks walkin around on steroids with acne up the ass and bad attitudes. some of these kids think they are superman because they're on the juice. it should be regulated, not outlawed. Maybe a required class on the use and effects of steroids and you have to be over 25 and then it's legal? that would be a great idea IMO

What is her name?
If you do not want to give us that info, I understand. But, that is how Arnold would feel too I bet. We are more secretive when it comes to ourselves and should respect others privacy as well.
I know she has probably gained your trust and you probably like her a lot. But, it sure sucks for everyone else who simply trusts her as their urologist.

yeah, in fact, she could be sued by arnie for telling you that. There are things called HIPPA regualtions.
Anyway, of course arnold didnt regret steroids .....neihther would n e 1 if they helped you attain prestigious bodybuilding championships, landing huge roles in huge movies, and becoming governer(and maybe even president). Not that steroids are ONLY to thank for that, but arnold was larger than life, that's why he was special. Bottom line: Being big and ripped makes you special. Everyone loves you, they wanna be around you, they wanna look at you, you are a specimen of superior homosapien. Add charisma, and you have a very powerful person. Having muscles opens up doors you would never have otherwise. its not shaollow, it's the truth. Building ones body is such a worthwhile endeavor. With it comes confidence, more sexual opportunity, better health, and respect from others. Bodybuilding is a woderful thing. And if someone wants to use compounds to in responsable manner to achive goals for themselves, there is no shame in it.
i love weights, and i love steroids. Who wouldn't?

It would be nice if you could get regular supervised treatment from an MD who specialized in AAS. It could be at the docs discretion whether or not you are ready and he/she could put together proper cycles for your goals and the required PCT. I think people would have a lot fewer problems.
Anway...just my two cents.
