Huge primo junkie and he swallowed dbol like M&M's. he also used Test,Deca,anadrol,halo anything he could get he used but he started off abusing primo and anabol
Yes the "taking dbol like tic tac M&M" story is more like an urban legend among old school BBers also the one that he was passing them pills around back stage (for free) while in Europe etc .... but truth is that when he lost to Zane (50lbs lighter than him) in Florida he knew he had to get lean and ripped to be the best in America, he tried everything available! but even at that age (21) he couldn't get as ripped, vascular dry although he won the Mr.O from 1970 on.... I would say the drastic dry look he finally accomplished in 1980 was more the result of the fish,egg water and heavy deca use.....
and Starvation ..... motivated by a great urge to teach Mentzer and Zane a lesson .
