I don't get it. Anyone with as much muscle as this guy would be declared on getbig as "all drugs". Just so you know, this pic is from 1900.

If someone could look like this 108 years ago, why do so many people think that today we can't (also naturally) achieve even more muscle than him?

100% true!

If anyone knows Jesse they will know he's one of the biggest liers around. He used to train with us at Olympus gym in Montebello and Donald Wong's Muscle Digest gym in Whittier. Although he was a good bodybuilder, he also claimed to be Cardiologist which was a bunch of BS and I know know what show he won for him to make the claim that he was an IFBB pro, but to the best of my knowledge, that's not true either. I do know his corruption ran pretty deep on Guam as well.

Can't stop the Obama train.  Sad
Guam's Democrats won big in Tuesday's General Election.
Not only did they keep majority control of the Legislature, they won 10 seats in the 30th Guam Legislature, which takes office in January.
Jesse Lujan is Republican Wink

Musclecenter I bet you could kick this Jesse guy's ass with one hand tied behind your massive lat spread. 
Thanks Grin
BTW,I attended 1995 IFBB Men's World which was held in Guam and met Jesse Lujan.
He is a real nice guy.

"Unfortunately there's a lot of old time bodybuilders who end up like that and get lost," said Tim Fogarty, a Los Angeles-based archivist for the sport who started MuscleMemory.com from his collection of 3,000 muscle magazines. "And there's a lot of fans who would have liked to help."

12938  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Steroid abuse has seeped into police agencies nationwide in US? on: November 14, 2008, 12:19:17 AM

DOWNTOWN SAN DIEGO – They need it to win fights with bad guys, to look menacing on the streets or to get that extra edge on the SWAT team.
To some police officers, the use of anabolic steroids is all about protecting themselves and the public.
But top law enforcement brass around the country are learning that the implications of a police force on steroids are far more frightening, Phoenix police Cmdr. Kim Humphrey said.

Humphrey talked about the trend yesterday at the International Association of Chiefs of Police conference in downtown San Diego.

He said steroid abuse has seeped into police agencies nationwide, but few departments test their officers for the drug.

Aggressive outbursts, excessive use of force, poor judgment and serious health problems have been associated with steroid abuse among officers. Not to mention the fact that the drug is illegal.

“It's gone far beyond the sports field,” said Gary Green, a leading steroid researcher at UCLA's Olympic testing laboratory and a consultant to Major League Baseball. “And it has big implications for law enforcement. This is someone who has a firearm, who is entrusted by the public. We certainly want them to be as healthy as they can be.”

The San Diego Police Department does not test for steroids in pre-employment screens or random drug tests, but officers could be tested if they are suspected of abusing steroids.

Bob Kanaski, San Diego assistant police chief, said steroid use was an issue in the department in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

“I haven't seen anything of that nature since then,” he said. “Which is surprising, too, because we are very close to Mexico, which is probably one of the largest providers of steroids.

“I think we've done pretty good education on what steroids can do – what they can do to your body and to your future,” Kanaski said.

Phoenix became the first large police department to randomly test for steroids in 2006 after learning that a few of its officers were mixed up in federal drug investigations targeting unscrupulous physicians.

Some officers resigned when they learned they may be tested, while others were investigated for steroid-related incidents, including two domestic violence cases, Humphrey said.

Five officers and one firefighter recruit have tested positive for the drug.

Several other police agencies have since made headlines with steroid scandals – including Dallas, Boston and New York – and have added steroid screenings to their battery of other drug tests.

One of the big hurdles of steroid testing is the cost. An initial screening runs about $60, and an in-depth test at UCLA's Olympic lab can skyrocket to $500.

Some officers try to justify the use of steroids by saying they suffer from low testosterone, a medical condition in some men. Others claim ignorance that they didn't believe what they were taking was illegal.

“It's going on everywhere,” said Humphrey, who has advised about a dozen police agencies on the matter. Testing officers for the drug, he said, is “an issue that needs to gain momentum.”

12940  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: IFBB WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP 2008 BAHRAIN - RESULTS on: November 13, 2008, 10:39:16 PM
the athletes from these Asian countries are already pros, in that they get paid by their governments to train and compete.  they probably have a higher standard of living than most 2nd and 3rd tier IFBB pros. 

however, my original comments were really about the state of drug testing.  All these guys at the Worlds are on massive amounts of PEDs.   The IFBB does random testing of the the top 5 of each class, and always some fail.  but we don't know how many are tested.   we don't know if anyone ever passes the test. 

if the IFBB really wants a drug free Worlds (which they don't) then they need to do year round random tests.  Or just drop all pretense that these athletes are drug free.
Agree

The Change We Need!!

the problem is that our top bodybuilders are just trying to get a pro card at the Nationals and aren't willing to enter a drug tested Team Universe.

If we were to make the Nationals drug tested then our top bodybuilders would learn how to get around those tests sooner and we'd be on more of a level playing field with those Asian countries.
agree
hopefully US team can reclaim the honour like 1980s .
