He continued, “That’s my advice to everyone out there. Do your research and learn as much as you can about anything before you do it. There’s always a better way to do something. If you have the choice to do natural or do steroids, stay natural. There’s no reason to do steroids. You’re only hurting your body and hurting yourself. But if you want to become a professional bodybuilder, guess what? You’re probably going to have to f—— do them. You’re not going to have a choice — you’re going to have to do them. That’s the boat I was in. I was competing on stage and I was getting to point where I was going to keep getting blown off the stage if I didn’t do them. So I took that step and that’s the road I chose. And here I am.
Some people I have trained have come to me from their previous trainers who made them believe that every guy with a good physique is on steroids and there`s no harm in using them. Nothing infuriates me more than this .The trainer is either a dumbass who knows nothing except how to inject or is just interested in making money from you by getting you on a steroid cycle. Always be skeptical towards the person trying to push you into doing steroids. To make few thousand bucks or the inability to deliver results without chemicals are the two main reasons they do this.
Though the rumors about Piana's death remain wholly unverified, it's true that insulin use is on the rise among bodybuilders, according to Dr. Harrison Pope, ., a psychiatry professor at Harvard Medical School who's conducted extensive research on substance abuse amongst bodybuilders. Piana himself was vocal about his use of insulin, going into detail about the practice in a YouTube video posted four years ago. He acknowledged that taking insulin can be “dangerous,” but said the danger is easily avoidable if you take the right amount of sugar.
