    Can you tell if someone is on ....

    Hey guys. Can people tell if you are juicing? Is there something in the eyes, general behavior, whatever that can clue someone in. I am not talking about aggression or getting big fast, more just a gut feeling you get. You think it's BS or true?

    I don't think there's any 100% fool proof way of telling, short of testing that is. There's guys who are obviously on cuz they are massive with low bf, extemely vascular, etc. Then there are guys who you suspect but could still be natural. If you know the person's lifestyle it would be much easier to tell. If he's holding some good lean mass and you know for a fact that maybe his diet isn't so good or he parties a lot then that might be a good indication that he's on.

    I like to think i've gotten decent at telling and I like to even *try* guessing their cycle.

    Usually some puffy air-filled looking muscles can give it away along w/ thinning hair and acne. I know, but that's just the way it is. In high school a hater tried to say I was juicing (which I wasn't) just because I had a few zits. So yeah, people that don't use get blamed also, it's jealousy.

    And I suppose if your girl is familiar w/ your nuts & they shrink up on you , that could be a give away.

    I think I can pretty much tell, who's on and who isn't. But I agree, you can totally tell if someone is on say "DBOL ", the bloated face and air filled arms (JK) are a dead give away.

    Pump, you're joking right? You went to muscle camp you saw the air valve on Jay's bi's and back right! Hell, he's like one of those life vests on the airplanes.. 2 nozels and blow away! The only difference between them and us are they have 200hp air compressor in their basements and we have to goto the gas station and pay $.25 for the wimpy compressor!

    There's no sure fire way to tell.

    Best indication is if you're familiar with the way someone looks and their face is noticeably puffier.

    I guess the puffiness in the face is the biggest give away, but it could be a side effect from a medication. A good excuse. No? I have noticed a slight sharpness, more focus, and intensity in the eyes of people who juice. Like the eye of a tiger sizing you up. Otherwise I still think it is just a gut feeling we all get. Anyone can be bloated, have a bad temper, have acne, air loss, but something in the eye is universal to all juicers. Thats how I feel.

    I'd say above average muscle and below average fat - could be a red flag.

    as far as puffy face ....... IMO not every cycle will make you bloat...

    thats due to the raise in testosterone .

    one of testosterones effects is that it makes you more focused and assertive(less clumsy).

    for example, if your testosterone levels where high, youd be walking around like you know where your going, looking sharp, rather than spaced out and relaxed.

    I can usually tell by looking at a person's traps.
    90% of the time that's the first muscle that really shows well when your on.

    One way my old buddies and I could tell when I new scrub was on gear was through body mannerisms. If you catch someone feeling all over their body between sets, posing a lot more in the mirror, showing up in more and more revealing clothing, etc.

    We used to work on staying as covered up as possbile while on so no one knew. I always swelled up like a puffer fish so it was pretty obvious.

    grab their balls while they are benching! If they are tiny they are jucing or cursed. Also hang around the shower room in the Gym and look at everyones balls. Make comments to them in passing like "wow, you are huge! , but your testicles are really small and cute!" Maybe they wont catch on that you are being slueth like and trying to see if they juice or not. Also you might want to grab their asses as you walk by. Pretend you jus tlike to grab ass! meanwhile get a real good grab in and feel for scar tissue. Im kidding anyways.

    My girl caught me on vacation in mexico. She thought I was juicing but I would always say CELL TECH! Being of pasty British Descent and having small redmarks resembling mosquito bites all over my translucent pasty british skin covered quads, and sitting in a chlorinated pull for about 4 hours straight the pin marks really started to show and she caught me! I came clean, she was ok with it and later that week we were looking for Mexican vets!.

    Well, I was accused of being on steroids before I was on them. Most people just have decided that if you're bigger or more cut than they are, you're jucing.

    Gmill13, you're a nut.

    i most def know who is on and not at my gym... here are the "Symtoms"

    1-after EVERY SET of turning bright red of pushing, they stare at that muscle part for a long while

    2-If their wearing tang tops, upper back and shoulders have a lot of zits on them.

    3-after the persons first set, keeps looking into the mirror for ever. flexing in between sets, and after.

    4-everytime you see the guy, he's slightly bigger than last time.

    5-when he joined the gym he was just a wimp now he's about 30lb heavier of pure muslce and always happy.

    6-all your buddies are huge and for benching 180 last week your maxing at 225 for 4 reps now.

    7-you know he was a freshman when you were a senior yet he's bigger than you and you have been lifting for more.

    8-everytime you look at someone who is on aas his arms slighty go outward.

    9-bloated face

    10-he has bandades on his delts still

    11-you see blemishis on his traps, delts

    ... can't think of anything else

    Zits on the arms gave me away. But lots of B5, anti-bacterial soap with salicilic acid and benz. peroxide have done wonders.

    I think you got to know the person before being able to tell hes juicing or not. When my friends are on a cycle its just obvious to tell simply by the way they act.

    I just went through your entire list and I have none of your symptoms. My skin has never looked better.

    The only dead give away for me is I'm growing quickly. But then, everyone at works sees me shoveling food all day so when someone questions how I gained weight so quickly everyone says have you ever seen this guy eat?

    The sad part is I had something like those when I was all natural. Since I started lifting I had pimples on my back, so much it scared it bad. When I went on, It cleared up, not fully but def a big diff.

    I say that only some people really know. I had everyone of my fellow employees ask me if I was on something. After a while I realized it was jealousy on their part, and the only way for them to solidfy their manhood was to delegate insulting remarks. Of course I just shook it off and joked about how I gained 20lbs in 2weeks by eating everything in sight.
