Do Mr. Olympia take steroids
The regulatory body that oversee the Mr. Olympia competition – the International Federation of Bodybuilding – adopted the World Anti-Doping Code in 2003 and have continued working to keep the sport free of steroids and other banned substances.
Do bodybuilders take steroids
Some bodybuilders and athletes use anabolic steroids to build muscles and improve athletic performance. They may take the steroids orally, inject them into muscles, or apply them to the skin as a gel or cream. These doses may be 10 to 100 times higher than doses used to treat medical conditions.
When did bodybuilders start using steroids
In the 1980s, anabolic steroid use began to extend into the general population, and young men began using these substances, sometimes to enhance athletic performance but in most cases to improve personal appearance.
