Steroids have been with us for a long time now and are used best under careful medical supervision.
The cult of superman was always absurd, but then it does not go away either. What we do know is that muscle bulk was possible in the past through extended hard physical labor along with ample food and youth as well. That was a pretty high price to pay for something that disappeared almost instantly when you let up.
A far superior body model was shown us by Bruce Lee and this is actually sustainable as well without using Steroids. The focus there is for speed. This matters as the difference in deliverable energy varies as the square of the velocity. Bruce Lee achieved fist velocities of over 40 miles per hour which was unusual to say the least.
Steroids are clearly used by everyone who becomes a serious athlete, not least because it becomes simply impossible to keep up with your training. What they do is allow rapid recovery from the necessary heavy training. What ordinarily demands days of recovery is done in hours. Of course, you would be using them.
Living Life Like a Steroid Superman!

Because those rages aren’t going to ’roid themselves!
For lifelong lifters like me, did it matter if I used or not?
