In America, we define ourselves in the superlative: we are the biggest, strongest, fastest country in the world. Is it any wonder that so many of our heroes are on performance enhancing drugs? Director Christopher Bell explores America's win-at-all-cost culture by examining how his two brothers became members of the steroid-subculture in an effort to realize their American dream

It was a new look on steriod use that i havent seen in the media. It talked about some of the misconceptions of steriods side effects. I thought it was a really good documentary that was extremely informative.

I've seen it a few times now, in fact Mike and I watched most of it together when I was out there. Cool vid!

I don't think it ever got published, just it was with the coroner. He had been in a rehab centre or a while though and wasn't in a great condition even during filming.

I have nothing to back this up but I heart tell it was a heart attack. Dude wasn't in any kind of shape worth taking about... although pear shaped qualifies as a shape... :huh:

That's a shame, I remember in the film he was still holding on to fairly unrealistic dreams and though he was better than he was as far as health wise I'd definitely agree he wasn't doing brilliantly.

Absolutely. I see that alot though, guys that think they are "better" than they are. I see it in my TKD class as well. We have two black belts that LOVE LOVE LOVE to tell YOU what to do but can't do it their damn selves! How about you spend a little more time making sure YOU can do it there, Black Belt Bob and a little less time watchin me.... its getting creepy....

LOL :D
