In episode 26 of The Muscle Engineer Podcast I’m joined by dr. Mike Israetel for a conversation about performance enhancing drugs and various circumstances where their usage may or may not be appropriate.

Topics discussed with time stamps:

4:30 Basic overview of what performance enhancing drugs (PED’s) are

9:06 Mike’s thoughts on teenagers taking PED’s within a couple weeks or months of training

22:45 A discussion about trying to impress women by taking PED’s and the type of physique that is appealing to most women

30:24 Mike’s thoughts on people being frustrated with not seeing results after 1-3 years of training because they don’t know how to train and eat properly and taking gear as a “shortcut” to achieve a physique perfectly achievably naturally

44:40 Young “trainers” using PED’s and using their physique as a justification that they know what they are doing and a general discussion about what to look for when you’re looking for a coach

54:07 Impostor syndrome and the value of taking care of your own physique as a coach

58:39 Unethical practices some trainers do

1:00:57 Coaches who work with enhanced posting their results and insinuating that other coaches who don’t produce similar results are doing something wrong

1:09:40 My main take-aways from the episode
