Many competitors have tried to keep that fact under the radar, but there are a few who are very open about their steroid use.

Larry Wheels has this to stay about his steroid use.
“As you guys know, I’m open about gear and stuff, I’ve come out with already,” Wheels said. “Usually I start about ten weeks out, leading up to the competition. But this time I realized it was jsut too early on, so now I’m bringing it down to six. Look, we all know that is a big part of competing at a world class level. We all take it, we all do it, it’s a big part of it.
“But when I would start too early, I would get to the competition and I’d feel burned out,” Wheels continued. “It would taper off, and my body would just feel exhausted, because it peaks, and then it drops. So this time, I’m starting six weeks out, only about a week ago, so my training numbers will be less. but it will peak, so when I get to the competition, I will feel stronger than I did in training.”
