Great Article on the latest Sports Doping Trend

SARMs were also hinted as the thing that the “smart” guys in the MLB were doing in early 2009.[9]

(Meanwhile, advanced dopers who get drug tested have likely moved on to something we’ve never heard of, and blogs like PricePlow will finally write about in 2020, but we digress…)

Anyway, the point is that the drug-testing world caught up with this long ago, but a key takeaway is that while this is “new” to our industry, they’re not necessarily that new…
It is a long read, but it goes into every nuance of SARMS including how they work chemically and how the moral panic prohibition machine works. I also enjoyed the sense of humor and obligatory baseball hero photo.

There are many legitimate uses for older varieties of performance enhancing drugs as well.

Anavar for instance.
