In this episode, Alberto, Brad, and Andrea discuss the decision all serious lifters face at some point in their journey, whether or not to use performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs). They talk about why they chose the natural route, why they continue to choose that route, and how the enhanced side of the fitness industry has changed over the last three years.
What have been Brad and Alberto’s experiences with being accused of taking performance-enhancing drugs? Has Brad considered using banned substances? How can the coaches “tell” if someone is natural or not? Why does 3DMJ only work with natural athletes?
If you are contemplating using PEDs or have athletes who are, give this episode a listen to hear a few perspectives on the decision.
