No one said that. But when you take someone who's already very fit or talented, a 5-10% edge over their competition would be huge.

Why do you think scoring and home runs have dropped off significantly since MLB actually put some teeth into its steroid policies?

Re: froning nutrition

Any competitive sport will have cheaters and the biggest the prize at the end, the harder some will try to "enhance their performance." I don't think the question itself is all that ridiculous, but expecting someone on this board to know definitively one way or the other is pretty ridiculous.

That being said, they did drug test at regionals right? Not sure if they tested for HgH, but CF is taking the necessary steps to keep the sport as clean as possible.

You could run cycles all year and take the necessary precautions to test clean at the regionals.

Re: froning nutrition

To the OP: no one here knows, and no one with definitive information would be likely to discuss it in a public forum.

Very true, but the same holds true in many sports. In most cases, if someone really wants to cheat, they'll find a way. Most tests only keep the honest people honest. If someone wants to take EPO or some synthetic steriod or HgH, there's probably not much stopping them (assuming they didn't pull blood for the tests, just urine).

Re: froning nutrition

I think this is the dumbest thread ever and should be deleted. Why single out Froning? Why make the title misleading relative to the question asked?

Threads like this are one way false rumors get started about people.

Because the OP is from Europe, or at least that's my best guess. Euro's are all about the juice with their weightlifters so it's more or less a part of their nutrition.

Personally I could give two fark's if you're on roids or not. Just be honest about it. I get that there's the whole legal thing and the stigma attached but IMO we're far too uptight about it in the US. You better believe if/when I make it to my 70's I'll be hitting up the HGH.

Absolute horsemeat.

I wonder if this thread gets bucketed? Ought to.
