    Hendo testosterone replacement therapy

    Post  2brutal on Wed Jul 13, 2011 7:48 pm

    Hendo has joined sonnen and marquardt in the ever expanding list of fighters who have admitted using testosterone replacement therapy

    What do you think is anyone buying this as a medical condition, or is it just a way of using steroids,

    When you have taken steroids for a prolonged period it can leave you with low levels of testosterone when you come off I rekon it's more likely down to that with these guys, I bet the list of fighters on it is very long

    Couture, Lindland and Hughes have been using it for years. Hendo's been using it for a long time too as far as I know. Not sure why it's being considered a big deal now.

    You can get Testosterone in Holland and Barret fuck sake! Laughing

    The lines are rediculously blurred to the point I dont give a shit who takes what. But youve gotta say Hendo is using what is deemed to be resonable levels of them and so are other.

    Nate and Sonnen just went a bit too far. I dont judge either of them for it thought I do Judge Nate on greasing and cheapshotitng palhares! Laughing

    Fighters can take Testosterone supliments but they have to be between certain levels, Hendo has fought since the dawn of time and never tested positive once or looked like a Juiced up maniac, if medical science can keep 40 plus year old legends healthy and injury free or prelong careers im all for it.

    if you are on it you should be regularly tested to make sure its within "reasonable" levels.

    alot of fighters have fought in countries/promotions where steroids are perfectly legal, and if their balls shrivelled to the point where they need to supplement the testosterone then so be it.

    College wrestling and it's set-up during the 80's and 90's is actually to blame in this circumstance. Because of the training, the schedule, the dieting, the weight-cutting etc. etc. it causes your testosterone to drop over the course of a number of years. I've seen it happen to Judoka who've been competing for years. College athletes are better taken care of now, but it can still happen.
