no, tysons early physique didn't remotely resemble a fighter on steroids, quite the opposite in fact.

Maybe another growth enhancer.

You don't see that many 190+ lbs 5'9 all muscle 12 year olds.

And if you did, you would expect them to grow a bit more than an inch and 20 lbs in the next 6 years.

And you wouldn't expect a 45 year old to weigh less than he did at 12.

Molesting his trainer's 11 year old niece ain't a nice thing to do.

You can admire his boxing talent, but he was a nasty piece of work out of the ring.

tyson did lift weights and that's fact. as far as steroids im not sure, i actually brought this up a while ago on another thread. i think if he took them it was after the buster loss his face and body looked bloated at times in the early 90's puffy unlike in the 80's but who knows. who care if he took em in the 80s they were still legal

I remember seeing an interview with him where he said he didn't do any weight lifting.

Think they were talking about Bruno's physique and how he lifts weights and Tyson said he didn't

He could have been lying, it not the worst thing he would have done.

So if you are dedicated you can put on 80+ of muscles from 9-12 even if you live in poverty and don't have much.

Good to know.

But that dedication can't make you put on 20lbs in 6 years from 12-18 despite top class training and loads of food.

if i remember coreectly dennis rodman grew like 8 inches in a 12-month span, all over the age of 18.

some guys are just freaks of nature and cannot be compared to average ESB forum members.

tyson is still probably around 210 at 5'10".

look at his legs.

5'8" barry sanders was around 205 as was 5'9" emmitt smith.

well they said around 190 at 12, that could mean 185 he fought at 215-220 in his early career so that's 30-35 pounds gained in 6yrs not a fat 30 pounds but muscle. that sounds about right to me very doable so im saying no steroids in early years if he did them it was after buster loss . i don't think he did them anytime after prison . and just for the record they say he was down to 195lbs while he was in jail
