excellent post..That's a given, Ron. We've all met people like these and I know a lot of lowlife bouncers whose day to day schedule is comprised pretty much of eating junk food, downing orals and "attempting" to train with their buddies, just so that they can say they do it. The fact that they look like shit does not mean the drugs do not work for them though, Ron. It means they have not been:
-doing the right drugs, in the right amounts.
Yes, but it's the genetic structure and response to the drugs of the individual itself that matters once on a cycle and NOT what they looked like before.
What would you define as "naturally skinny"?
- A person with long legs, small waist, narrow shoulders?
- A person who looks famished because they have a very fast metabolism (hormonal issues) and cannot gain weight no matter how much they eat?
- or a combination of both?
Let's use an extreme example. People claim someone like Woody Allen would never be able to look decently big, no matter what he did due to his genetics. He's supposed to have "shit genetics" for muscle-building purposes.
That is absolute bs. He may not have been to build large amounts of muscle naturally, probably none if he started training right now at his age. What people do not acknowledge is that he looks like that because of his internal endocrine system. We're talking about a classic example of a man who has probably had low levels of natural testosterone and growth hormone throughout his whole life. Now, what gear does is REPLACE or ADD to endogenous hormone production with an exogenous supply. So, you see, it really doesn't matter what he looked like before because if he started injecting he would become a completely DIFFERENT man.
And that is the case with any naturally skinny person. Science allows us to redefine nature. And gear is one of the great achievements of science. I've mentioned it here before, gear can even act as the elixir of youth. The entirety of the Masters Olympia lineup can attest to that. Competing at the top level at ages over 40? That is simply A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Just try and put the power of those compounds in perspective. It's mindblowing.
And that's why I get mad when people say stuff like "it's god and hard work that got me here". Yeah, sure. I bet god is really pleased with how they've been giving him a hand by replacing what he provided them with with stuff that's made in labs. As for hard work... Gimme a break. There are millions of people out there who work just as hard.
Conclusion-addendum: once you're on the stuff- your diet and work regime can be JUST as good as anybody else's. The variables that CAN be manipulated in the most extreme / experimental forms though in order to achieve ENTIRELY different kinds of result are the type, quality and amount of gear. People who were born skinny and cannot get big no matter what they do- simply have no clue what they're doing.
I remember when carrot top started juicing.. turned into a fucking beast.. lol
