When I was a kid I thought all the bodybuilders in the magazines were wealthy and reported to the Weider headquarters everyday where they would sit in their offices and type articles. Boy was I wrong!

Same here. In fact I continued believing this well into my 20s before I started to smell a rat that these guys "might" be on drugs. But I continued training diligently and passed the ten-year mark wondering why I wasn't as big as Dorian or Nasser. But I thought hey, maybe I'm a late developer.

Wasn't until I joined Getbig that everything became crystal clear.

I knew you had to win shows to make money right off the bat! I thought some of the muscletech athletes and the current mr.Olympia at the time were doing OK. hell I read muscular development and they did not hide that drugs were a big part of the sport.Flex magazine did! They were not as real about steroid use as muscular development was. I took me having to workout at a big gym to see the roid junkies. when your in middle school and work out at a rec center you do not see juice heads but when i hit up 24 hr fitness and bally fitness I saw guys on juice and it was obvious.

There are times when I realise just how epic getbig is.

Take last week for example, i'm chatting in the gym with a couple of new starters who'd apparently been training for years - giving them hints on form for deadlift (no homo - I was standing to the side and no touching) When we get into a conversation about competing and a couple of big dudes in the gym become the subject of the conversation. I tell them flat out that to be that size, prob 10 pounds heavier than myself will take a shitload of drugs / very hard on the body / very expensive etc.

The look they gave me said it all - it was as if they were shocked they even took drugs to look like that lol.

Thank God, and Ron for getbig!!!!!

I go bacl quite a bit further than Muscletech. I'm talking about 79, 80, 81. Also, I'm not talking about drugs I'm talking about income.

Tell me about it. I had a guy that used to ask me every single time he saw me, "yo bro what are the side effects, is it dangerous" "am I gonna get big" this and that but I am talking this went on for 2 years. It got to the point where I had to tell him that I can't discuss these matters at the gym cause it is inappropriate and of course this guy was looking to compete so finally he say I am going to do it of 2 years of contemplating like it was a matter of life and death. Then after his first injection he comes to the gym and looks at a few us and say  ''I am on the sauce now, game over, Ronnie who?" it was epic  Cheesy

We went to the Arnold Europe last weekend and went to real Madrid soccer stadium before bodybuilding show. Like even an average player is on 50k a week and after the bodybuilding show hide, ed nunn, Ben white, johnnie Jackson were waiting for a taxi with us, that they had to pay out of their own pocket  Many of the pros were in our hotel and they are far from millionaires.
