The Cost of Success
Despite what many believe, bodybuilding glory isn’t a direct science. It’s not a case of ingest this plus working this hard equals desired results; unfortunately, there are too many unforeseen variables at play to account for.
This is even more so the case when writer “Shadow Pro” proclaims he’s spent a gargantuan $20,000 on a 16-week cycle in the past, but goes on to say anywhere between $8,000 and $15,000 is a more average cost.
Human Growth Hormone is one of the most popular and desirable substances available to bodybuilders, but because it’s a protein and more difficult to synthesize, it’s also one of the drugs likely to run up any bill the quickest.
“A pro bodybuilder could spend more on a competition cycle than he or she can win at the show!”
