“Is it still cheating if everyone is doing it”? That’s the question asked in the movie, “Bigger, Stronger, Faster”, directed by Chris Bell, today’s special guest. Of course, we’re speaking about steroid use, and other performance enhancers; these days considered controversial at best, and illegal, dangerous, unethical, and/or tightly controlled by law at worst.
Chris Bell and his brothers grew up in the 80′s, as “huge fans of professional wrestling watching Hulk Hogan, all these guys that were larger than life and eventually that would parlay into all the other things we liked, like Rambo, He-Man, the A-Team, Conan, Rocky, the Incredible Hulk, anything to do with muscles and guys beating up other guys”.
With this kind of background, it would be a temptation for them to use steroids as they all chased their dreams of growing up big and strong and successful, just like their heroes.
Listen in to this spirited, no holds barred discussion between Chris Bell and Mr. Natural Olympia John Hansen on the subject of steroids. Then you might have an answer for the guy who asks, “Is it still cheating if everyone is doing it”?
Also joining John today is our friend, Alex from Optimum Nutrition, talking about Optimum’s “Nitro Core 24″, a strategic blend of 10 different proteins, giving you 24 grams of fast, medium and slow acting protein, 5 grams of fiber; along with important digestive enzymes and essential fatty acids, in a great collection of flavors.
