- A rant from me, Mick Hart.
Someone asked this question on my discussion board a few days ago and it got me to thinking why we bodybuilders have such a bad time with the public and the media.
I wonder why we go through so much shit and feathers. Have you ever thought about it? Well think about it for a moment; how can we breakdown the reasons?
- How do the public see us really?
Well most see us as dick-short, half brained drug users with an attitude problem that deserve all the side effects that we have coming to us but that is what they are led to think from equally half brained fuck wits that have never seen the inside of a gym, never mind even contemplating a half work- out to start with.
They base their knowledge on half truths from the usual media soaked articles that we are accustomed to on a regular basis. But they have to get some idea of this vision from somewhere; so where?
- The answer is easy!
It comes from total 100% wankers who like to call themselves dedicated bodybuilders; those who actually believe that the MORE gear you can take the bigger and better you will get.
Nahh, sorry guys you never had a loyalty factor in your lives, but the TRUE bodybuilder does.
He is more concerned with safety first THEN results; that being uppermost in his mind. He will also scrutinize all cycles and stacks and question anything that is out of the ordinary - or should do at least!
Times many have I seen cycles that scare the shit out of me sent up by beginners, mostly kids; given to them by hairy arsed fuck wits that have about as much a clue to taking gear as I have about West Bolivian Duck Sucking!!
Let me give you an example of a cycle that was sent to me by a lad of 19 years of age some time ago now. He had then already made up his mind that he was going to take this no matter what, but he thought that he would run it by me first, go figure! He has only just re-contacted me.
My first reaction was to tell him to go forth and multiply, but I was soon interested in what he had been advised to take.
It consisted of:
4 x Sustanon 250; 3 x Testosterone Enanthate; and 3+ x Anapolon 50mg to be increased - PER DAY for the first three weeks!
Then it lowered down to a measly half of that dosage only to be shot up again during the final three weeks of the course; the total being about an eight week course and this was to be his FIRST cycle! I jest not!
It was also suggested that if he could afford it to add growth hormone at about 4 iu's every day. He was to obtain this from a mate, of a mate's brother who new a guy in an alley; who new a ... well you know the rest.
- Pussy Cycles
He was told that the cycles featured in my Layman's Guide were inadequate and would produce nothing actually, yet he had the cheek to call me and ask ME my opinion of what I thought.
I explained that should he take this amount of gear and ignore the advice that I offered he could end up with big problems.
- He chose to ignore.
He was also advised that his diet did not have to be clean, in fact quite the contrary, he was advised to take in calories of whatever nature and as much of it. This he did also with devastating effects to come.
OK the guy gained about 30lbs + after apparently taking not one but two FULL courses of the type described above; most of it fat ON fat and water.
In his short but eventful steroid therapy he had developed "bitch tits" that has become so sore that he had to wear plasters on his nipples!
His balls were so far up his body that he looked like he had a couple of lumps under his chin. He had NOT had a hard on for the whole duration and for a long time after this effect continued.
He had acne on his aback that was so bad it bled onto his shirt when he lay down; his sweat stank - bad! I jest not again.
- Short Career
There is the obvious coming now unfortunately; OK the guy packed the sport in after about 6 months in total. For some reason bodybuilding did not agree with him.
His parents were shocked at how he looked and acted during his short career to such an extent that they contacted their local paper and gave yet another crippling "example" of just how bodybuilding had ruined their son and that how would never be the same again.
The paper was outraged, the parents were outraged; the son kept his fucking mouth shut because he knew that I would hit back on the defense of the sport after reading it - and I did.
I explained that he had sought advice but not taken it; ignored ALL the safety aspects and taken the word of people that did not know the sport nor never would. Funnily enough, these trainers were no where to be found - hmnn, wonder why?
- Take note Joe Public
OK some will say that WE only get what we have coming to us because we take steroids. We do admittedly, but in the main the majority of us take it sensibly and carefully.
NO bodybuilder with the slightest bit of sense or decency would throw someone off onto such a cycle - but it happens all too often.
In the main, we do what we do for ourselves, by ourselves and out of the way. We have no wish to rob you of your video or T.V. because unlike heroin users we do NOT become addicted to steroids.
What DOES happen though is that we get addicted to working out and keeping in shape, so why tar us with the same fucking brush as the hard drug users?
You do this out of sheer ignorance, you have NO knowledge of what we do or what we take NOR the way in which it affects us - apart from that which your daily papers say we do.
Nor do we mug old folks to get a fix for our sport unlike the hundreds of thousands of heroin users do because steroids do NOT affect us like that.
It DOES affect little fuck wits like the guy in the example given but what you have to do is trust the knowledgeable amongst us to help and advise without persecution - so leave the fuck off will you?
- We few, we happy few, we Band of Brothers.
We are a solitary lot, yet we like to gather occasionally to show that we are not extinct. Our sport is a lonely one to say the least because apart from the fact that most of our breed only gather in two's, we do prefer our own company or at least the company of fellow bodybuilders because we LIKE to be known as "them".
We are indeed an elite bunch; a society expelled from the public because we like to be different from you all.
We like the fact that we can see our own dicks and do not have to shine the toes on our shoes to be able to see it.
We enjoy being strong and we endure pain gladly self inflicted because WE alone know just what that pain can bring; we are happy with that even though that we know it fucks your head up trying to understand why we do it.
You question why we like a muscular body, yet cannot see the reason why when you look in the mirror at your fat belly, you know the one that your wife or husband also looks at and always tells you that you are cuddly.
But you are not; you are fat and when you stop so quick the fat carries on and on.
Hey, we do not find the TV remote that we have been searching for under a flap of belly skin - so look again!
I like that part most of all because you Joe Public's who criticize us so much, will in the main, never ever feel the warmth and buzz of a "pump".
- A little sadistic?
I suppose that you are right, but sadism under control so much that we have the ability to shape not only our lives but our minds AND our physiques. Can you do that on hard drugs? I think
I agree that there are a lot of people that use bodybuilding and the size that it can bring, for the ability to intimidate.
For that we can only apologize and by bringing you such articles help you to see a little more clearly; but seeing clearly is something that does not come easily to you.
Steroids are not the answer, but they are an addition to the enjoyment of the sport as is a new fangled cycle or a fishing rod that has moved on with the times - i.e. progression.
Hey we did not invent gear, but we will be damned if we are not going to use it when it is there AND it's 2003 for fucks sake! Who wants to go back? I know I don't for one.
- Deaths attributed to gear?
Where? All I ask is to give me the actual listings of the people that have directly died from steroid usage over the last say, 20 years.
Oh I have no doubt that there will be some; but when you do this, will you also give me the listings of HOW many died of the following also: cigarettes; alcohol; heroin; cocaine; aspirin and paracetamol as examples.
Also please list all those that died from the usage of their cell phones last year in the USA alone as an example; doesn't matter I have it here - actually it was 4000!
Can I also have the listings of just how many bodybuilders died from taking steroids whilst driving OR those that killed pedestrians whilst under the influence? I think that your lists would be small to zilch for the steroid users. Agree?
- To summarize
I ask you Joe to please take note of this. We do what we do because we are proud of what and who we are.
Most of us will help and advise simply because we do actually care.
The young do need protecting from the unwise and that protection comes from we who are knowledgeable. We also do this because we are proud of who we are.
Times many, men who have been unable to "ring their wives bell", stay hard, and even GET hard have benefited from our knowledge.
The older man who has had problems in bed for years and years has suddenly sprouted again even with a small amount of steroid intake. How bad is that?
Yet we do not go through years and years of research to try and find out the obvious because it is there in black and white.
If something is missing, replace it, don't sit and wonder how or why - enjoy! Boy are YOU lot missing out on a lot!
Now then, there are thousands upon thousands of men who cannot get hard! Shit, they have even got Pele advertising about erection problems on TV now - what the fuck does he know?
But I DO know that I could screw the core out of an apple half a dozen times a day and not even blink and I only use a minimal amount of gear.
OK I wish I could get a better screw than an apple - but hey I like fruit!
All we ask is that you give us a fair hearing in future, that is all. Do not tar us with the same brush and remember that your video is safe when we are around.
OK I have had my say now and I can hear your thoughts coming through loud and clear...
Ah well, same as usual... at least I tried.
