On Friday October 22, 2004, President Bush signed into law the Anabolic Steroid Control Act of 2004 (the Anabolic Steroid Control Act ). 14 years have passed since anabolic / androgenic steroids (AAS) were added to the federal controlled substance list, placing them under the same legal classification for cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine. Unfortunately, instead of making progress, we are regressing in our efforts to educate against not knowing about anabolic steroids!
Current legislation expands the scope of the Anabolic Steroid Control Act to include all prohormone and steroid supplements (excluding DHEA, estrogens, progestins and corticosteroids).
This provision removes a loophole that has allowed many athletes and bodybuilders to use hormonal supplements for non-medical purposes. Specifically, the law is moving to reclassify some extremely potent OTC androgens as controlled substances (for example, 1-dihydrotestosterone, also known as 1-testosterone or 1-AD ; 17-a-methyl- 1-testosterone alias M1T ; methyl-dienolone alias methyl-D; 17a-methyl-4-hydroxy-nandrolone aka M4OH.
The criminalization of the AAS in 1990 was a tragic failure. The result has been a dramatic expansion of the smuggled black market. The entry into force of the 2004 law can reasonably be expected to encourage many otherwise legitimate citizens to turn to the black market to satisfy their desire to use steroids for non-therapeutic purposes.
The only good news I can tell you at this point is that MESO-Rx will continue its fight to provide its readers and the bodybuilding community on the Internet with accurate information about anabolic steroids. We will continue our efforts to combat the ignorance that continues to rage among the public, legislators, healthcare professionals and the media. Finally, for those of you who have enjoyed the freedom to legally and easily use hormonal drugs with prohormone and steroid supplements, I can tell you that you have about 87 days left before the Anabolic Steroid Control Act of 2004 came into effect.
Combine scientific research with practical applications for maximum results
We spend too much time posting and reading on Internet whiteboards “scientific research” conducted mainly on mice, guinea pigs and / or “average” people, not athletes. And all this is a great pontification with arrogance, philosophizing and disputes about the reliability of certain studies regarding the creation of an optimal anabolic scenario in the human body. People who are unfamiliar with this problem, that is, most of us, require specific scientific documentation of facts before considering something new. It does not even occur to us that there may be no scientific research, conducted or not conducted on humans, that can show what “works” in the real world. Don’t crush me. Laboratory research is of empirical importance. But I made the mistake of not going deep into the belief in animal research on guinea pigs or in untrained, non-athletic people. This attitude distracted me from the “specific intent” of various chemical uses. I was all captivated by the fact that one substance neutralizes another with certain effects and so on. Until I was paralyzed: I realized that for every new idea I made or read about, there was always scientific research that went against it. There was no exit. I became overly tough and anal, sold out fast and only managed to hold on without even earning.
As I delved deeper into the work of author L. Rea, I began to wonder if it was by chance that what really builds the “beasts” of today is something so new and revolutionary that at the moment their doesn’t exist still learning about it? What about? After all, aren’t true “pioneers” always ahead of their time? Our time has come, and surrendering to the truth is not an easy decision. A certain degree of humility and willingness to learn is required. The truth is often unpleasant for those of us who have spent the past twenty years collecting “all our efforts,” each time scratching our heads that, flipping through muscle magazines, we come across photographs of unnatural animals. We feel frustrated and take it out because of these “genetic phenomena.” “What lucky bastards!” we apologize to ourselves, our wives and girlfriends. “Excellent genes … yes, that’s all!”
I see self-styled “gurus” who are eager to defend the research they have so diligently posted to test their opinions. After all, who can challenge science? To be honest, I am convinced that their egos may be “correct”, but they are unlikely to be “happy” and able to overcome the plateau. Because it is precisely a closed mind, an obsessive ego, misinformation and / or an overly “diligent” attitude towards the damage to the practical application of the results, for the consolidation of the plateau. Ignorance is bliss … There is no damn thing that needs to be changed! But, unfortunately, what is comfortable and familiar is not necessarily what works … I decided to be “happy” rather than “right”, unhappy and disappointed.
I turned my full attention to the author L. Rea. It didn’t happen overnight. On the first reading of his works, I got angry because of my ignorance and the fact that I was “put on the road.” I found it unpleasant to work. For the most part, it seemed pointless. However, I could not remove it. I kept his book on the nightstand or in the bathroom. And it turned into long nights of reading in bed and moments of intimacy between me and the written page. I began to read between the lines and open my mind. I was given moments of clarity …
What really works in the real world? Are you ready for a change? Do you want to overcome your folds and achieve muscle mass and lipolysis levels that you can only dream of?
All it takes is a little ruthless honesty, open-mindedness and a willingness to think about something new. You can always go back to the old. It will always be there for you. This brings you to where you are now, doesn’t it?
Author L. Rea is a pioneer in the genes category in the field of anabolic chemistry, physiology, strategies for maximizing muscle strengthening and lipolysis. His work is based on 20 years of experience in the laboratory and beyond. He collected and then made public what was once known only to the “inner circle” of the IFBB professional rank.
Have you ever thought that maybe they might have “exclusive niche secrets” about what really works?
Take Marcus Ruhl as an example. See how he sat on his bed in Germany in 1990 and then again in 2000-2004.
Or better yet, take a look at the photo that depicts author L. Rea as he fought for a cage in 1982, fought between medical schools, and then took one from 1987. He has maintained, consolidated, and has increased his muscle mass to date, as shown in the 2003 photo.
Author L. Rea and Markus Ruhl were clearly genetic ectomorphs. Do you really believe that they could achieve the level of muscle strength they have today if they just limited themselves to doing sessions, eating right, exercising and taking steroids / insulin / hgh, etc. …? Be honest with yourself – THEY WERE EKTOMORPHY! Could there be something else behind this?
