Arnold Schwarzenegger Has Talked About Drugs

Arnold Schwarzenegger bodybuilding

He has no regrets,

In the interview with ABC New’s George Stephanopolus, Arnold told that he knows about Performance enhancing drugs and used them.

I have no any regrets related to steroids because at that time these drugs were something new in the market and we get it to the doctor under doctor’s supervision”.

We were experimenting with them because they are new and now I changed my mind.

Arnold said that: He does not encourage anyone to use the illegal drugs because it looks to convey the wrong message to the children.

The individuals and other beginners should take the food, vitamins, and all of the nutritious materials that can reduce deficiency from the body.

According to Arnold opinion: he wants to see the bodybuilding as a respectable sport and keep it clean. We don’t try to destroy the bodybuilding.

The majority is misguided by legal PEDs even they are made up of illegal compounds.

It is important to take food supplements consisted of milk protein, soybean, fish.

These all are sources of proteins and responsible for enhancing the power.

Vitamin E is responsible for increasing the energy level.

He added: The Performance enhancing drugs are already considered as illegal in California schools.


Why Arnold Takes The Steroids?

First of all, you need to know about the difference between and modern and old bodybuilding.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Mr Olympia

50 years ago, the steroids are considered as nothing (old) as they are today (modern).

It is impossible to think the modern bodybuilding without anabolic steroids.

The modern bodybuilders have a fear of bad image and poor career after accepting the steroid use so, they are very few individuals who are willing to take the bold step and talked about the steroid use.

The main reason to deny the steroid practice is that these illegal drugs are banned in the US and they have a very strict issue.

At that time (old), the anabolic steroids were new in the market and everyone has a passion to try the drugs.

While old-school Arnold did not abuse the anabolic steroids and used within a moderate dose.

  • He has used the simple compounds in his steroid cycle.
  • The anabolic steroids are not only responsible for the aesthetic physiques.
  • The Arnold time period of steroid practice has begun when the drugs are new in the market and everyone was exciting to try and see the result.
  • It is not hard to get the steroids. Everyone gets the anabolic steroids easily after getting the prescription from a doctor.
  • The other thing is that the steroids are available on the cheap rates.
  • The legal and illegal considerations are not in the priority.

Cardiovascular Issues:

Arnold has admitted the Performance Enhancing drug because they were legal at that time.

He has a minor complication in the aortic valve of a heart.

Arnold has faced the steroids issues when the German doctor predicted the heart conditions with the steroid use.

The Doctor said that the small defective congenital aortic heart valve by birth may be the cause of an early death.

Ric Drasin:

The other guys who trained with Arnold like Ric Drasin.

According to Ric, he just got the 100 pieces of Dianabol pills (5mg) in just only $8.

He just only needed a prescription from the two doctors in the Golden Era of bodybuilding.

But, the main thing to consider is that they all are using the steroids within a normal or moderate range.

They are using the dosages similar to today Pro-bodybuilders.

They can not overdose the drugs amount.

Together with Arnold, the most famous other bodybuilders of the Golden Era are Frank Zane, and Serge Nubret.

What Types Of Steroids Arnold Have Taken?

We do not know the actual steroids, but we have mentioned some names according to our assumption.

Actors Arnold Schwarzenegger Bodybuilding

The 60’s and 70’s steroids are probably used to develop an aesthetic.

At the Golden era, there are only six steroids are available.

The steroids are Deca Durabolin, Dianabol, And Primobolan.

The Winstrol and Anavar were most commonly used for the cutting purposes.


Arnold Schwarzenegger Steroids Cycle

We do not claim that It is the actual steroid cycle, but It looks similar to his cycle.

The Arnold steroid cycle is gathering a lot of interest and It is really amazing.

Arnold Schwarzenegger has not openly talked that what types of steroids that he was used.

He has already accepted the steroid practice in the different interviews when he was training for the Olympia.

It is widely considered that Arnold probably uses the following steroids:

  • Primobolan
  • Dianabol
  • Deca Durabolin

It is the still mystery that where he has done this steroid practice or maybe another.

According to the second source, his cycle may include three components that are Anadrol, Deca, and Dianabol.

His movie “Pumping Iron” also consist of steroid discussion and it is assumed that his physique is a result of these three steroids.

Their cycle usually starts with a low dose, increased the dose, and then lowered the dose again.

The Pyramiding cycles were considered as very effective and good, but now It is considered as ineffective.

The steroid cycle is not for developing a bigger body like a monster and actually, it is used for defining the aesthetic combined with a tiny waist.

The physique is not just only due to the steroids, It also involves the hard work and dedication.

However, it is interesting to know about the steroid cycle of Golden Era.

The today’s bodybuilders do not impress me because the most of them are like a beast or monster shape.

They have a very big steroid gut, which is generally out of the proportion.

There are many bodybuilders who also used the anti-estrogen drugs during Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) to inhibit all the nasty side effects.

But in the old days of bodybuilding, most of them did not know about the accuracy of doping, stress-reducing supplements, and testosterone boosters.


1. Primobolan:

Primobolan is also called as Metenolone enanthate. It is available in the injectable form.

It is considered that the Primobolan from Germany is the Arnold favorite drug and very popular drug on these days.

Back to the days, this drug is very powerful and widely used by the athletes or bodybuilders.

But, there is a lot of difference in the today and 60, 70 stuff.

Nowadays, the value of Primobolan is decreasing but, some of the bodybuilders are still using this illegal drug.

According to Ric Drasin, he got the Primobolan from Arnold and Franco.

The Primobolan comes in a box and already loaded with the needle and I just blew up the drugs into my system.

The Arnold and Franco both are the famous bodybuilders of the Golden Era and used almost the similar steroids to build up the muscle mass quickly.

However, all of the bodybuilders are not abusing the drugs.


2. Dianabol:

Dianabol is also called as Methandrostenolone used to improve the strength, bulking, vitality, sex-drive,  and endurance level.

Some of the workout training is Barbell Bench Press, Hanging Leg Raise, Wide Grip Chin Up, Dumbbell Flyes, Clean And Press, Lateral Raise, Incline Dumbbell Curl, Wrist Curls, Kneeling Cable Crunch, And Standing Calf Raises.

The Nutrition

In the recent interview, Arnold talked about the nutrition more prominently protein.

The breakfast included in the scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, and tomatoes.

My nutrition routine is all fine but, I’m hungry after every two hours.

In order to fulfill the nutrient requirement, I have taken the 250 grams of protein per day in the form of a shake.

He has almost 6 meals along with the pre-workout and post-workout.

The meals are included with tomatoes and vegetables.

Arnold knows the value of supplement for maintaining the overall health.

He said that generally, we do not get enough proteins and nutrients through regular meals so, It is important to take the supplements.

You must focus on the macro-nutrients to build up the muscle mass.

The recommended amount of protein is almost one gram per body weight while If you are eating the carbohydrate so, It is important to do the high volume workouts.

Arnold Diet Rule

He has some rule for the diet, which can help to manage the diet with the training.

You must eat frequently around 5-6 times meal combined with the supplements.

The calorie range is high around 4,000 and the number of proteins is 250 grams per day.

consumption of carbohydrates managed after an hour of work out because the Carbs are necessary for providing the energy.

The glass of protein shakes has to increase when your body demands more protein.


Assumption

Arnold Schwarzenegger BodybuildingNow Arnold is against to anabolic steroid use and points out the new generation for their balloon-like muscles.

Now in the sports, the bodybuilders and other participants are not allowed to intake any drug because It is illegal.

They are charging for million of dollars.

I do not promote the steroid use,  although, you can consume the food and vitamin supplements.

I think everyone is using the steroids but, Arnolds knows very well “How to use”

A Legal Disclaimer:

The above steroid cycle is just based on our opinion, we do not know the actual steroids.

Our aim does not encourage the use of illegal compounds.
