    Well, how many of you have an eye for the affects of juice? Only because I know personally the look - I could be an investigator. But you better not name names, if you don't want a liable suit at your door. Just tell me if you think you can spot em.

    1.- Libel. And that's not applicable on places like internet message boards. I can call anyone here anything I pretty much goddamn please.

    2.- Depends on the degree of usage. HGH abuse has some specific makers, more prominently the neanderthal brow they develop.

    absolutely not, if the evidence was clear. intermittent ache break outs, particular form and shape - bloating, and then a miraculous shedding and vola - suddenly ripped - possibly frequent injuries - no - go with the evidence.

    After being on the forums for some time, I get the impression that most gays (here at least) think another guy is on steroids if he has a 6-pack. Anything more than a slim swimmer's build is considered grotesque and too muscle-y. icon_lol.gif

    Roid gut and stretch marks give it away.

    I cath them while they are sleeping and take a urine sample to test it!

    Maybe these people just have endocrine disorders. Observation isn't the best way to find out. Besides, how do you know you are so good at detecting people on steroids? Do you ask them?

    My problem is that you "spot" the huge guys. But it stands to reason that a fair amount of people who do steroids at one point started when they were relatively small, and some people stay small even while taking steroids. So just to think everyone that is muscular is on roids is a bit silly and rings of jealousy to me.

    I'm not into competitive bodybuilding, so this is not a sport for me and therefore I have no one to compete with. Why would I care if someone else is on steroids?

    I can generally tell, especially in person. What intrigues me more is how people who can't tell are so quick to label others as users. It really weirds me out when I get accused of it.

    Steroids? No, not really.

    But I can tell when somebody used to look like me (wiry and lean) and vows never to look that way again and is unsatisfied with an almost perfectly proportioned body and wants to get bigger, thus becoming grotesque, asymetrical and crap.

    I think you should try and take it as a compliment - they obviously think you're incredibly well-built and assume you must have used steroids because it's a lot easy to do that than put in the hard work you have naturally. At the same time it's a bit like being called a cheat I guess so I can understand why you don't appreciate it!

    The day I get accused of using steroids I will secretly be so damn chuffed, haha!

    Have you heard of jealous.com?
    Just cos you are well fit doesn't mean jack about steroid use. Grant it no one ever accused me of being on the juice, but I couldn't care less if anyone does it, or doesn't. I thinks is kinda cheating though, not to mention the damage it can do. My 32yr old buddy had 2 strokes, and has a pacemaker...cos he was so juiced up!

    I don't really see steroids as 'cheating'. People are free to ingest anything they want (unless they are competing, clearly).

    Some people do it and their body looks great- not obviously roided, but healthy and swole/ripped looking.

    I do however feel that some people just don't look good juiced up, or they take it to a gross extreme to compensate for something. When a persons musculature looks impossibly large and ill-proportioned, skin looks leathery and acne-scarred, veins franticly popping everywhere to an obscene amount, and range of movement limited more than a 9 month pregnant Octomom, its time to reconsider tactics.

    To infer that steroids are somehow "cheating" is to not understand that steroids aren't magic pills that put muscle on a body -- steroids allow the user to work HARDER, not less.

    There's a BIG difference between using steroids you buy blindly from some goon you meet at the gym and doing HRT, or testosterone therapy -- which is a perfectly legal, healthy way for men who've gone through Andropause to get some of their vigor back.

    With that in mind, I'm proud to say that I own an HRT clinic here in DC and have been a "user" for several years.

    Can I spot a guy on steroids? No. But I CAN spot a guy who doesn't manage the side-effects properly.

    Bloated faces also are a sign.


    A former friend of mine took steroids and I didn't realize it...He use to be athletic but lean like me...Then after a fall out I bumped into him again and he was really muscular...But his face looked as he was pumped with helium gas..icon_confused.gif

    Much later a mutual friend told me the truth about the steroid usage.

    Also this asshole of guy I once chatted with openly admitted of taking steroids...The douche is under the impression that testes don't shrink, they only look small because of bigger thigh muscles....icon_rolleyes.gif

    The first sign I usually notice is "roid gut" (protruding ab muscles). But really, I could care less who juices and who doesn't. I take care of my body the way I see fit, and let others make their own decisions.

    "Roid gut" is a product of growth hormone (hgh) more than it is testosterone or other "steroids." Roid gut is caused by the increased size of internal organs due to hgh abuse, not the ab muscles themselves growing.

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidI have wretched stretchmarks since high school. They are scattered throughout the chest/shoulder tie-in as well as the rear delt/lat muscle tie-in. All my excessive tattoos hide them very well. But they were not from steroid use. I got these from simply lifting and gaining 100lb from the time I was a freshman to the time I was a senior. They never went away nor got better.

    I can tell when guys are on them. There are quite a few guys at my gym who are on them.

    Acne or "bacne" is always a dead giveaway. Skin texture also starts to change. Having 19" arms or more with a 31-32" waist with vascularity for days also tends to indicate steroid use.

    Bloated faces also are a sign.

    Guys who do a lot of HGH not only get the cromagnon heavy brow but also develop distended bellies and have super ripped or lean bodies.


    I have bacne scars from an allergic reaction to some meds, and I was born with a fat face icon_sad.gif Good thing I don't have a lot of muscles yet I guess.

    Bingo! I get it because I pick up mass quickly. (people don't see me behind the scenes stuffing my face with lean meat and rice).

    Steroid muscle seriously is gross, a mate of mine used to steroid up, and yes he looked great, but the muscle was soft and spongy. Will take a natural athletic muscle man anyday icon_twisted.gif
