Besides, performance enhancing drugs, steroids in particular, are just shortcuts. You can become just as strong without them, it just takes longer. Personally, I’ve walked in to a gym, have seen huge guys obviously jacked up on something, and I’m stronger than them in many ways. I have a stronger core, can do more pull-ups, can run faster and longer, etc… Who cares if I can’t bench as much as they can? Bench-press has no real application in life (unless you get stuck under a car?) Reason I am as strong as I am is through dedication when I was a swimmer and worked out a ridiculous amount (up to 12 workouts a week at times) for 6 years of my life and climbed almost everyday after those 6 years.
