So is Johnson’s steroid use something he should be ashamed of? A reason to lambast the star? Not in the least. Dwayne Johnson is a hard working and inspirational figure whose bigger than just one incident. And to be fair, plenty of people have used steroids and have been no worse for wear. Everyone wants to put a negative spin on the anabolic substance, but in truth, with proper education on the subject, many would understand that steroid use isn’t as terrifying as the media makes it seem. It isn’t fair to label him a “roidhead” because of the hard work Johnson puts in the gym. Even if Johnson currently used steroids, which we doubt he does, it shouldn’t take away from the fact that he’s a great actor, role model, and human being. Before throwing around labels, people in the media and in online communities need to be educated in order to have an opinion that carries weight.
@Geoff: so people are “fucken idiots” if they think The Rock used steroids? I’m terribly sorry to be the one to give you this reality check, Geoff, but you’re in dire need of it, so here goes; I’ve been doing bodybuilding for more than 15 years and I can tell you from my own experience that a lot of the stuff that you see on “natural” stages is often not natural at all – you should really get a grip on reality. Sadly enough, quite a lot of the “natural” guys (I wouldn’t say the majority) do a cycle during the off season and try not to test positive during the competitions (which has gone wrong on more than one occasion). I don’t have a problem with people using non-natural bodybuilding regimes, not at all, but don’t take part in natural competitions if you do, that’s all; go for the non-natural competitions or simply don’t compete. Furthermore, most of the “natural” bodybuilders are not bigger than the Rock; they might be more cut, true, and you might confuse this with “being big,” but most of them are definitely not bigger, volume- and mass-wise. And as far as the Rock’s steroid’s usage is concerned: he apparently admitted to this himself (which, again, is not a “bad thing” in my opinion; to each his own, after all), just check (for example) http:///articles/140046-dwayne-the-rock-johnson-says-he-used-steriods-is-it-just-his-era-that-used .
