Not surprisingly, I passed. I know it’s not rational, but I was still nervous. My mind playing tricks on me that maybe something from 5 years ago was hanging out. Also, for some reason I was thinking about the glass of wine I had and if it would show up on the test. I know, crazy. Bottom line is, to this day I’m not a big fan of tests.
Dave and Jon are good guys and we go back, however, I know this about them, they do not pull punches, they tell it straight. That’s why I let them do this. Wherever they stand on steroid use, they did a first-class job setting up the test and presenting the results.
So that’s that. I’ll still take a test anytime, anywhere. Doubters, bring it on. Most of you don’t care either way and I’m cool with that, too. I think that by taking steroids out of the equation for this, we get to focus on the essence of bodybuilding: training, genetics, hard work. That means something to me, and I know it does to you, too.
Sit tight, a lot of you guessed right. Gold’s Gym, Venice. A great hard leg workout. Eleven plates each side, 20 reps. It was hard to tape there, people kept coming up to me, which is great though – it was great to be there. Sit tight, I’ll post it shortly. Out.
