    Also fact that ward has refused vada testing the past and also he has shown a tell tale sign of ped use with his back acne. So that alone puts suspicion on ward and now hes talking about putting on pure muscle mass while he’s been retired it will naturally make people at least discuss the subject.

    Depends what stage of development they're at. Ward is already muscular at 175lbs and a grown man. The most he could likely gain in a month would be around one and and half to two pounds of pure muscle. That's provided he's training full time on muscle gain with a great diet and no use of steroids. More likely it'd be closer to a pound.

    As a beginner, having done no weight training at around 155lbs it'd be considered exceptional to gain anything around 20lbs a year. I think we can assume Ward is neither 155lbs nor a complete novice to weight training.

    There are loads more articles available, but those should give you a good idea of things. Regarding your own experience, how much of your mass gain was lean muscle? Ward seems to be saying he's gained 10-15lbs of lean muscle, not just overall mass. For a man of his stage of physical development that raises alarm bells with me.

    Even at 7 months the weight gain is suspicious. Then again, Ward might be BSing and including fat along with the lean muscle, in which case 10-15lbs is very attainable.

    To be fair he has been VADA tested before and back acne means nothing, hell I have back acne right now and I'm not doping. That much increased mass if true is suspicious though and this is coming from a Ward fan.

    Yeah, I have back acne myself, and have done since my teens. That's a poor indicator.

    What's more damning is the company Ward has kept in the past, namely Victor Conte. There's only one reason you ever hire Victor Conte for any sports related activity, and it ain't for his great knowledge of bass guitar.

    And its not like Ward is that muscular either. He was a damn matchstick when he turned pro. Said years ago that to make 175lbs took work.

    Agreed anyone working with known offenders has to be suspect. Now that Ruiz Jr is supposedly working with Memo Heredia combined with his dramatic weight loss you have to suspect he's doping now.

    Even for a relatively skinny guy? We are not talking about a bodybuilder here. Those guys work for years to gain a few pounds.

    I know but he refused it after he had a break and yeah back acne don’t mean much but when you consider it all it’s suspect.

    Lyle McDonald is such a gimp and he hasn't gained an ounce of muscle in his life.

    Ward takes a crap on most of the divisions he's been involved in to be fair.
