    Hi i'm Joe, I have created this TheXvid channel to show my progression from a skinny teenager who is sick of being skinny to hopefully in the future being more muscular and just better in general both physically and mentally.

      @Daniel Doyle what’s wrong with saying “Black guy” It’s a way of identification and isn’t racist. People say “white guy” all the time and I don’t see a problem with it.

      For sure. Some people also don't know much and assume any guy with 17 inch arms are on gear. When I was 21, I would lift religiously. Sleep a minimum of 12 hours, took in like 250 grams of protein per day, took through USP Labs stack, but I wasn't on steroids and many people in the gym thought I was juicing. Granted, the biggest my arms got was 18.75 inches but I'm only 5"9, so maybe that created the illusion that my arms were bigger.

    The guy that was sitting down who said he was natty and said "dont I look it" actually did. Yes he was muscular, but compared to everyone else he interviewed not so much. When I used to work out a lot people would ask me if I was on gear and it just cracked me up. I was 6'2" and 210 pounds. My gym buddy used to just laugh because he knew I wasn't obviously. And anyone else who lifts serious would too. So that one guy reminded me of that.

    Respect to the last guy, got 3rd place and admits he isn't natural and giving good advice = all my life i've been in good shape, no gym no supplements, just workout at home and lifting weights for making my day to day easier. Also great inside on - if you want to compete you need a strict diet, strict planning on what and when you do and the edge is supplements, not worth if you aren't competing.

      @steroidsR4losers The key is, everyone has their dreams and passions, and not evrything can be acheved becouse you want it, if these people have chosen this path, it's up to them, just as you strongly belive steroids are for losers, they belive they need them to get to their goal. And respect is becouse it's a touchy subject due to people who are strongly against it and love to bark at them. So yea, in my eyes, that deserves respect, every person I've trained with has openly said- if they needed the edge, steroids would be a great benefit, if used properly. Most people are there and have said they do steroids and so what does the person we are talking about suposto do? Give up, cuz other people are doing steroids and winning, but he can't cuz they are for losers? Tell me, how would you aproach this situation.

    It's such a trip realizing how much honesty is one of the best things. Everyone including myself would always be upset with people when they say they weren't using steroids. But when people are being honest and admit it it's like they have an enormous amount of respect because like I said honesty is a really good thing.

    This is great!! Peel the lid off this bullshit. It’s not taboo and the more open everyone is about it the better off everyone will be. Cleaner, safer, more understanding of body chemistry and hormones and over all education about health and fitness. Much respect to you and everyone who answered honestly.

      @I'm KoliP0ki they're "cheating" at their own life tho, it doesn't effect you at all... are you competing against them? No. Some people really struggle with finding motivation, if it helps them stay motivated and gets them their desired physic which would be normally unobtainable for them why wouldn't you be for it?

    • I'm KoliP0ki
      I'm KoliP0ki 3 days ago

      My argument is when you see results is motivates you to work harder and more consistently. So with roids if you are seeing double the results in the same amount of time then it's super easy to stay motivated and consistent. It's a cheat

    I took some steroids when I was over 18. I took about 1 shot per week and I saw some growth. I was able to see that I would have to take a lot more steroids and for longer periods to get actual results.
    I counted my losses and moved away.
    Right now, I'm focusing on weighted pull-ups. I want to become the strongest pull-up guy (weight wise of course).

    Really good to see people being honest about it. It certainly wasn't like that a few years ago. It's still disappointing though that so many people take it these days. I've been training 31 years now and simply never made the huge gains that I've seen many get in 1/30th of the time. Then again, I've seen the same people disappear when they come off it. Natural is and always will be the way to build.

    • SkyNet Intex
      SkyNet Intex 2 months ago

      @steroidsR4losers I never said it deserved respect. I simply stated that it was good to see people, who take them, being honest about it. Before, they were taking it and BS'ing that they didn't.
      I've been tempted a couple of times, but never done it, and given how long I've avoided it, I never will.

    I think you went to a bodybuilding event expecting people to treat gear in the same way pro athletes or boxers do- it’s not taboo in bodybuilding. People have little to lose from admitting it and thus are very open about it and the health effects that come from it are now well documented both good and bad

    i think that body building competition has a too small base to diverge into different categories. if there were more people interested you could have a natural competetion (monitored by a covernance like in speed cycling), and a enhanced competition where basically anything is allowed.
    i would be more interested in the frst categorie, who has the best genes and willpower to grow mass.
    still i respect the people who are honest about their use

      @steroidsR4losers well almost everyone deserves respect (not counting pedos etc lol). Thats kind of the whole point of peace in a way. Hes not injecting it to anyone forcefully, hes talking about it openly to probably spread the word and let other guys know about the negatives too. You dont know the background story, maybe he got into fitness industry to help out his parents and was kind of forced by the industry standards to take roids, maybe he was fighting some inner demons and wanted to get big as possible to solve some of his personal issues, to prove himself something... etc. To assume everyone who takes something (only to affect themselves and themselves only) is kinda bad point of view in my opinion. Like what? Are people who take antidepressants bad too? Because the take something with addiction potencial? Do your grandma not deserves respect because shes using some medicaments too? Only the purpose is different. I dont think we have the right to judge someone only because of what hes consuming. Especially when hes not forcing it onto anyone and even spreading the info bout it.

    I’m natural never done a steroid In my life. I’d seriously recommend, buying a a set of gravity paralette bars, and watching TheXvid videos on different techniques on how to use them. The muscle
    / technique I have gained not even on a strict diet is insane. However always train legs at least 2 times a week, I’d recommend a 🚲 ride for maximum growth, as this works every muscle in your legs, quads hammys and calf’s.

    I think while it's important to have a more critical eye of if a person is on steroids based on how built they are, it's also important to remember that some body types really can get that ripped with the combination of genes, hard consistent work, and diet. My dad can get pretty big when he wants to be consistent, considering his diet is entirely clean and beneficial to muscle building.

    Love that more people are being open but think the most frustrating thing is being consistent for 17 years averaging almost 7 days a week (even with torn Achilles showing up to the gym with a peg leg) and people who aren’t natty knock your hard-work because you’re more in-shape than they are and THEY chose to be on things. people don’t see the 3 sets of failure sets curls or shoulder work before bedtime on top of daily gym workouts. That’s the only thing I have against the fitness world today.

    everyone knows majority of body builders are on steroids the reason a lot say they're not is because of their contracts and sponsorship deals, once they stop competing professionally they all start coming clean about their routines and what they took. the last dude was awesome, a lot of people dont even look into the possible side effects and think there's nothing that could potentially go wrong because steroids are essentially the norm now

    Now as a adult i've forgiven my parents and i've also forgiven pro bodybuilding. However as of today most pro bodybuilders are still living and making money of a lie, thats why im so happy to see that more people are now coming out in the open.

    Love the last guys explanation. You have to understand that once you hop on gear, you are basically a doctors guinea pig for the rest of your life. Regular blood work, medications, gyno surgery, hair loss treatment, acne treatment, physical therapy, etc. The only viable reason to take steroids is if you know for a fact you’re going to make loads of money by having an amazing physique.

    Tiny local gym I used to go around to as a kid from around 2007-2010 in Derbyshire was filled with a group of lads in their 20s who had got it into their heads that they needed to take steds and get as huge as possible. It was such a random small gym but this group of around 10 guys were absolutely huge. Theyd be buying and selling in the locker room and I remember hearing one of them talk about how you could feel the chemicals pump through their your bloodstream when you injected it and it gave them a buzz. One in particular was literally the biggest guy I've ever seen in a gym and I've been lifting for around 14 years. He looked so unhealthy even then, swollen red face and hands, hamster cheeks, constantly out of breath. He was also the shyest one and kept himself to himself. Probably suffered from massive self esteem issues. Heard a few years ago he was getting nosebleeds in the gym whilst lifting - and then I heard on the grapevine he literally died in the gym of cardiac arrest last year. No idea how the rest of them are doing, they'll be approaching their 40s now. Not worth it
