I have no doubt that LBJ is on peds...

But these people using his pics to make a point are honestly more naive than the people who think he doesnt using anything.

They even posted Jordan... :lol: . Yeah, a guy who smoked and drink regularly didnt use anything. :lol:

Well everyone does it to some degree but not as religiously as it should be done. Restoration is the key component to LeBrons success. He religiously looks after his restoration process with massage, lowering body temp, sleep. Those are the things that I think have set him apart from most other NBA players other than his genetic gifts.

There are certain ways you need to draw heat from muscles. Very specific ways and I'm not sure how well anyone on basketball teams understand these aspects of muscle physiology, you'd hope it'd be something commonly used but that is not for certain. In my experience, with specific knowledge you can have a lot of variance between what people know. The best things aren't often the commonly used things.

What's your level of knowledge of biology, physiology and biochemistry, I can pass you some articles on it but I can also tell you where to look. An enzyme called pyruvate kinase is an important component to glycolysis, it's heat sensitive to stop you from cooking your muscle proteins from too much heat generated from energy metabolism. If you remove the heat from the muscles then you don't have to shut down energy production.

With all the games, practices, and workouts, I'm actually surprised these players can keep weight on.
Its all Garbo's fault!

I have a working knowledge of most (did a bit more study in biochem years back just for fun), but rather poor in terms of academics. Been a while since i spent a lot of time reading academic research in these areas, but I can generally understand well enough to get the important facts.

Any while I'm sure sleep and massage and other things can have a huge impact, heck I think this is pretty well known. Still supplements, especially as you age are increasingly impactful and important.

Size is not indicative of PED use.

Various PED's have different effects and can help an athlete with recovery, endurance etc.

Turkouglu and Rashard Lewis both were busted for PED's and both were skinny as ****.

He also seems to be insinuating Lebron is the only one using PEDs too. Because if PEDs caused that kind of size you would see it way more often in the league

umm, yeah you always want an insulin spike in the post workout recovery time frame...this is lifting 101. this is like learning your ABC's before they teach you to read.


you can get that insulin spike by eating complex carbs, sugar is a simple carb is absolute trash for your body, pre or post workout.

again, whoever is telling you that fire them immediately.

thanks for letting me us know about the basics tho my guy.


Eh, I listen to a podcast by James Harden's trainer (Paul Fabritz) that's pretty informative for athletic training and he talks about how people like LeBron with way higher ratios of type 2 muscle fibers react differently to eating simple sugars and they can actually use it more because of how quickly it burns your energy reserves.

Simple sugars as a general rule are absolutely trash for most people, but there are almost always exceptions to every rule. I also don't doubt that Tristan Thompson is wildly exaggerating.
Zion's best comp is Fat D-Rose :D
