You’ve probably seen the stuff about Lance Armstrong all over the news, right? He has done this interview with Oprah where he apparently is baring all and admitting to the use of performance enhancing drugs throughout his career and not least of all during the period when he won his 7 Tour De France Titles.
Now, I am not here to judge Lance and that is not my intention. Life is a game of opinions and everyone has one. But his situation made me think about the use of performance enhancing drugs such as steroids, human growth hormone, etc. in bodybuilding.
So many people are using these drugs and are happy to admit it and many more are using them while professing to be natural and drug free, a little like Lance did when he was winning all of those titles. So it seems that opinions on the use of performance enhancing drugs are split, which is why I am curious to know what you think.
What I am interested in is your opinion on the use of performance enhancing drugs in bodybuilding and of course I am interested to know how you feel about the whole Lance Armstrong thing too if you wish to comment…
Plus if Lance Armstrong is being called a cheat for taking sports enhancing drugs, what does that mean for bodybuilders who take steroids? Are they cheats as well?
Let us know what you think below!
