The usage of anabolic steroids in competitive endeavors has always been a touchy subject to address. After all, many believe that the use of steroids is equivalent to cheating. If there’s one thing fans hate it’s a cheater. Yet in certain sporting endeavors the idea of utilizing anabolic substances is par for the course. Essentially it’s a no brained to use steroids in bodybuilding and even in powerlifting. There are even strongman competitors who have admitted to using anabolic substances to with their performance.

When you compete at the highest levels of any sport the idea of losing can be terrifying. For that very reason many athletes seek out any kind of advantage in order to win. For many that means taking performance enhancing drugs.

In a recent video on his YouTube channel Robert Oberst touched on the subject further. He opts to refer to the substance as “hormones” or “testosterone” rather than steroids or anabolic substances. Why exactly isn’t clear. What is clear is the statement he issued about why performance enhancers are utilized by athletes.

when you get past that (physical prime), it’s noticeable for sure.  So, from a professional athlete’s standpoint, it’s one of those things you can’t let dip. You can’t just let your body start to shut down and expect to get the same results out of it.

Robert Oberst eludes to his usage but doesn’t quite give explicit details. That said it does seem clear that he has used something in the past.

Returning to Top Form

It does appear that Robert Oberst is also dealing with lower testosterone levels. He apparently got approval to take something for his low test levels since he hopes to get back in top shape.
