Back in the 60s-80s, the bodybuilders would train 2-3 times a day, consume strict diet and were more passionate about the goal of reaching an epitome of perfect physique.

It is not as if Mr. Olympia is no longer a dream for bodybuilders but the dependency on steroids has shattered their dreams. The regulation body that runs Mr. Olympia, International Federation of Bodybuilding does not allow the use of steroids and before every competition, the participants are required to provide a urine sample to determine the use of steroids. At such a point many athletes are left behind the competition. To deal with such a situation, prepare your steroid cycle ahead of time and study how long does it last in the body, but be sure that steroid suits your body because it will react differently with others and it’s not wise to rely on others positive experience. And if you are smart about it, you just might be the future Mr. Olympia.

Therefore, be certain when and when not to listen because you will come across many people who would have a lot to tell you but nothing authentic.
