Jordan’s shallow comments on the recent deaths in bodybuilding, rising drug use, and the massive transformation of the modern bodybuilding architecture.
While bodybuilding has always been somewhat of a taboo in the general public due to perceived steroid use, the topic is getting hotter in the modern bodybuilding industry. Many high-profile trainers, experts, and athletes have previously gone on record to believe that drug abuse has gone too far in modern bodybuilding. A string of tragic bodybuilding deaths recently, though unrelated, has fanned the flames focused on drug abuse and health in sports. In their latest GI Exclusive, The Muscle Doc Jordan Shallow gives his opinion on the use of PED in bodybuilding.
There is no doubt that PEDs are used in the sport of bodybuilding. In fact, this applies to almost all professional sports. Those who want to achieve greatness are willing to do anything to reach that goal. This can also create a slippery slope. If athletes know that top professionals use PEDs, they will feel it ought to Use it to stay on the same playing field. Then the cycle continues.
But maybe it doesn’t have to be this way. During our conversation with Jordan Shallow, we caught up with the topic of bodybuilding health and the recent deaths that tragically have plagued the sport. It should be noted that the causes of death were not disclosed in almost all of these cases. Regardless, it has caused a wave of bodybuilding icons, experts, and coaches to influence drug use in sports. Jordan Shallow believes there is a world in which the same muscular results can be achieved with fewer PEDs.
The common understanding is that – if bodybuilders become healthier, they will become less exciting with a smaller body. While it’s true that bodybuilding will always require some level of extreme risk – Jordan Shallow believes the risks shouldn’t be anywhere near the height they are today.
“It’s obviously multifactorial and I don’t want to defame anyone or do anything like that,” Jordan Sahl says in our interview. continue:
“But I think, you know, if we look deep into exercise execution and we can set up exercises to challenge the muscles to the maximum and get the most return. We won’t have to ramp up recovery the way we do performance-enhancing drugs, and maybe we can speed up our ability to marshal appropriate stimulation. “.
It is worth noting that many professional bodybuilders have a broad understanding of exercise and how it works. This is their job. But Jordan Shallow seems to think that modern bodybuilding is moving toward chemical solutions rather than deep physical ones. Dahl acknowledges that his statements are based solely on anecdotal evidence. But in his personal experience, he claims that over the past 10 years or so he has had more conversations with bodybuilders about increasing training with PEDs and less about studying deeper and deeper into maximizing exercise.
This statement also seems to match up with others we’ve heard from older bodybuilding legends in the sport. Occasionally during our exclusive interviews with GI Exclusive, veteran bodybuilders have claimed that younger bodybuilders started switching toward PEDs much earlier. The common belief is that old school bodybuilders have naturally trained longer in their careers. They switched to PEDs only when they reached the maximum they could push normally.
Today, many seasoned bodybuilders worry that young athletes will turn to PEDs like steroids right away – before they have a full understanding of what they can accomplish naturally. It should be noted that all these statements are based on what he says here. They are anecdotal stories based on personal experiences. This could partly be the nostalgia of a classic rose color. “My era is better than yours” mentality. But there may also be some truth in that.
The internet and scientific developments have significantly changed the way athletes (and even casual fitness enthusiasts) use them. The drug world of bodybuilding is definitely not what it was 30 years ago. Perhaps Jordan Shallow is simply referring to the same thing. We are getting a lot of information and many developments very quickly. This detailed knowledge slips by the wayside to replace the quick internet facts and easy-to-obtain PEDs.
