Some?  LOL he was referred to as "the chemist" for a reason.  LOL.  Some? Are you serious!  The guy was juiced as much as anyone of that era. 

I don't like Zane.  His personality nor his physique.  He was a tiny guy.  Ever see pictures of him in normal clothes out in public?  I mean Chris Dickerson was shorter than Zane and had twice as much muscle.  Rick Wayne fucking dwarfs Zane in that pic.  And I'm no fan of the dark negroid bodybuilders but they had some amazing competitors back in the day but were robbed a lot due to prejudice.  Harold Poole, amazing!

I grew up in the gym owned by Mr. Universe competitor Richard Baldwin.  Richard spoke to Frank several times a week.  No secret about the AAS and ancillaries, Frank was an early proponent of thyroid meds for contest prep.  From what I remember, they really DID use less and only 9-12 weeks out from a show.  1 gram a week seems to be the amount spoken of.
