--- Be careful now. Sports are not healthy folks, none of them are. Sport's heroes are daredevils doing dangerous activities. Society likes to throw stones on this 'Evil Steriod' deal but, Boxing is much more dangerous, as is race car driving. Football is very dangerous to your health, basketball, sorry it's not healthy. Contrary to popular belief, I know of no known documented person that has ever died of using 'steriods' Diruetics yes. Alcohol yes, Sport, especially driving and motorcycling, yes. And no, lyle alzedo (sp) did not die of steriods nor is there any data to support his type of cancer and steriods. And Deca is not anadrol 50 folks. I'm not pro steriod but I am pro rational, educated discussion and there are alot of people standing on pedestals acting like they know something they no nothing about but what a little picture box tells them to believe. To his credit, he did train very hard, and was born with amazing genetics-you can't make an Arnold out of a ectomorph, at least not yet, wait til gene therapy and tissue engineering hit the scene.
Eating well, exercising while trying to lessen the chance of injury, seeing your doctor, and avoiding risky activies are healthy. So who do you pick? I'd say someone who has advanced degrees in related areas of nutrition and exercise science. This is the way to do it.
Maybe we shouldn't allow those who have genetic advantages over others as unfair advantage?
But wait, what if I can safely genetically enhance myself?
It will be here before you know it.
Actually Arnold didn't have proper leg development. And although he trained and lived the sport, without the genetics and drugs he would never had looked as he did, however, his competition were doign the same thing.
