In the world of bodybuilding, what does it mean to be “natural”? In today’s episode, Andrea, Eric and Alberto, sit down together to discuss what it means to be drug-free, and why each of them chose this path.
What is the typical drug-free timespan required by most natural organizations? What is the group’s stance on the concept of “lifetime-natural”? What is one of the primary reasons why people who have used in the past, or are currently using, try to sneak their way into natural competitions? Should people on hormone-replacement therapy be allowed to compete in natural organizations?
Along with the above topics, the group also dig in on a more personal level, looking at Eric’s early lifting days, the story of how Alberto at one point purchased pro-hormones, and what it feels like to be accused of not being natural.
