Would it be a stretch then to say that the current Hollywood actors are using steroids/TRT more like a supplement as opposed to the monster body builder stereotype that everyone associates with roid heads? Is the difference steroid abuse as opposed to responsible usage.

In other news, went to the gym tonight after 4 twelve hour night shifts on the bounce so about 12 hours sleep since Saturday afternoon, drowning in my snot from some mild cold/hay fever bull gooseberry fool yet managed to personal bests. Sport is weird.

You squat more you deadlift? Do you train one and not the other? Injuries?

Professional bodybuilders are likely always on something with peaks in the off season and before competition where the amounts increase. Probably just on a high dosage of Testosterone for years at a time and peak with 4 different things being used for the months at a time. "Blast and Cruise".

Where as actors would more likely come fully off after filming and let the body return to homeostasis and go through post cycle therapy.

You'd assume higher levels of the stuff for longer periods of time would lead worse health outcomes. But risk vs reward, there's only one Mr Olympia each year and they all want to win.

Sounds like your gym session was similar to my bench press story.

Nice one man.

Do you guys mostly just do compounds or do you add isolation stuff in as well?

I would imagine there are two sides to it, one being the competion and desire to win and the more sinister side of body building with the insecurities and body dysmorphia, paranoia that lead to people pushing boundaries.

It is weird though, everyone must have a story of looking forward to training after a good night's sleep and eating well throughout the day yet having a rubbish session. Then you get the alternative of having an awesome session after a booze filled weekend wth minimal sleep and eating junk food. Personally the only thing I can see in myself is the fact I haven't trained which probably says I should manage my off days better.

Its just the way its gone. Like one week maybe id fail the DL but do the squat, so next session squat is up and DL is the same, or something, I dunno :lol: It just always seemed like something caused my DL numbers to go up a lot slower than squat.

I almost never do isolation exercises. I don't enjoy them compared to compound movements. Should do more bicep curls. Gone months without doing them.

I just assume "cumulative fatigue" is the reason why junk food filled rest days that go on too long can sometimes lead to very productive sessions.

I don't imagine most people even on the extreme end of the bodybuilding spectrum have mental health issues like body dysmorphia. I reckon they just really enjoy what they do and are super competitive about it in the same way most professional sports people are. That weird getting fake boobs in his arms and chest to look muscular without actually going gym however certainly does.

Flex Wheeler though man, god damn.

I think you underestimate the prevalence of body dysmorphia.

Been having to get creative with my callisthenics, started filling up my bag with 15l of water bottles to give a bit of resistance while I squat :lol:
