It's like everyone said in the '80s about Arnold and Sly. Who gives a fark? He's an actor/director (mostly a director now). He's not in the Olympics.
 
2013-10-02 01:04:08 PM  
Does this mean he gets an asterisk by his name in the closing credits?

Thats nothing, I take andro for my beer softball league.  And no one seems to give a fark, I feel the same about this.
 
2013-10-02 01:07:01 PM  
Why would he need that? Doesn't aging make the human body better, faster and stronger?
 
2013-10-02 01:08:53 PM  
Goodell also fined James Harrison $30,000 just to be sure.

If you really wanna see roid-rage, you should see them kids who use steroid asthma inhalers. Some can handle it and others go into the jocks shower room and castrate the whole lot of them for shiats and giggles.

Poor Joe Piscopo, who may of or may not of been juicing.

Just watched The Expendables II Monday, for the first time.

Was OK. Obviously 80s over the top, but could they throw in a few dollars to hire a writer for Exp 3? Please?

Well, he'll definitely be left off the Oscar ballot for sure.

I stand corrected. He might have always been muscular and hiding it under a cozy layer of fat. But I suspect some carefully administered HGH would get credit for the assist.

Anyone who thinks these Hollywood types make those dramatic body changes naturally is an idiot. Doesn't matter if it's gaining/loosing weight, getting in shape or whatever, it's all done with the help of drugs/surgery.
 
2013-10-02 02:41:02 PM  
Sure hope it doesn't alter his sparkling personality.  He's such a nice fella.

Imagine a world where people didn't have to be rich or criminal to decide what to do with their own bodies....

Nah - that'd be way too much freedom.  It's a good thing we have a government to tell us what we can do.

As of late, I certainly have more respect for Mel than I do Bruce Willis.

I'd also argue Mel is a very talented director, and I'd be tired of his ex-wifes shiat too if I had been dating the golddigger myself.

OR...people who get paid millions of dollars to film a movie have the time to train and work out , as well as access to personal trainers and nutrition coaches. Hell, If you paid me a few million dollars, and gave me nothing better to do for six months, I could get pretty buff, too, without using drugs or surgery. That's not to be saying that none of the Hollywood types take the easy way out, just that, when you don't have a day job to go to, it's not really all that hard to modify your body...especially if you're used to doing it as a routine part of your career.
 
2013-10-02 03:20:56 PM  
Mel Gibson has always been muscular and he's always been in very very good shape. Plus he's obviously lifting and training for this movie, so he'll look bigger than usual. Contrary to what some idiots believe, you can achieve noticeable changes in a few months. You don't always need to take steroids and, contrary to what some idiots believe, steroids don't magically turn you into a wall of muscles.

In the off-case you're not trolling, here's how:

1- When they have a physical part, they train for hours everyday with a personal trainer who coaches and motivates them.

2- they have top of the line nutrition and don't stuff their faces with greasy junk fast food. Nutrition is the single most important aspect of training. Not doing 80 push-ups a day.

Old actor possibly takes steroids/hgh.  Who cares?
 
2013-10-02 04:12:40 PM  
If he is taking 'roids (and I am NOT saying that he is), is that a problem...legally speaking? I know that the NFL and MLB ban PEDs, but are they illegal? I mean, doctors prescribe steroids for all kinds of stuff. Are these steroids/HGH different from a legal standpoint? Or is it just frowned-upon because of the stigma that comes from the professional sports bans?
 
2013-10-02 04:32:02 PM  
Steroids are illegal without a prescription.

This. He was definitely riding a bike to get those arms. Muscle takes a long time to build, even if you have a personal trainer (lol).

You know little about exercise science. The human body can add about 1/2 lb if muscle per month naturally (not counting newbie gains). Doesn't matter how much you work out or how good your nutrition is.

And training for "hours every day" means they are more likely doing roids. Steroids allow you to work out longer and harder; otherwise, they'd be overtraining. Steroids aren't magic; they just allow one to work out longer and harder without injury
 
2013-10-02 05:31:00 PM  
Oh and not to mention Mel is older, so his testosterone is lower and thus, it'll be even harder. And his arms got huge -- try getting arms like that naturally and tell me it's possible

machoprogrammer: And his arms got huge -- try getting arms like that naturally and tell me it's possible

Seems like you are the one who knows little about exercise science...

By your logic, it'd take you 10 years to gain 60 pounds.

And what does muscle gain has to do with anything? Mel Gibson has always been a fit guy. 

And training for "hours every day" means they are more likely doing roids. Steroids allow you to work out longer and harder; otherwise, they'd be overtraining. Steroids aren't magic; they just allow one to work out longer and harder without injury

It was just a figure of speech. Obviously they're not working out from 9-5... And good job on telling me what I had already said.

Oh and not to mention Mel is older, so his testosterone is lower and thus, it'll be even harder. And his arms got huge -- try getting arms like that naturally and tell me it's possible

Exactly. Older people gain weight easier due to lower metabolism. Good ol' Mel here isn't ripped cut like a younger person would get. He's just swole due to training but is still an old guy and has old man arms. Plus again, he's always been a fit guy. This isn't a "Charlie Sheen gained 40 pounds for Hot Shots 2" or "Edward Norton, from Primal Fear to American History X" situation where the subject was a skinny ass 98 pound weakling and became a herculean übermensch. In case you haven't noticed: Mel Gibson has always been fit.

Are you saying the guy working with Arnold and Stallone is most likely NOT using roids? Well, that's optimism at its highest level. By the way, you can go back to Mel's career and he never looked this massive. Fit, yes. Not quite like this.

I think I was unfair to Jason Statham and Jet Lee. They seem like disciplined guys (not a knock on Bruce Lee or Chuck Norris or even Terry Crews) but I would not be surprised if either one of these guys get stopped at airport security with needles and HGH or horse testosterone. But, a guy in his late 50's/early 60's who has self-control/substance issues getting MUCH bigger at that age and who is working with both Stallone and Arnold is more that a little suspicious. Again, I do not care what these guys do with their bodies, but it is obvious they are juicing. Good on them, I say!

Sorry, I meant 2 lb per month (was originally going to say 1/2 lb per week, but mentally slipped).

Unless someone has really good genetics (like, 1 in a million genes), 2 lb per month is as fast as you can gain. The body can only repair muscle tissue so fast.  http://www.builtlean.com/2011/10/13/how-fast-can-you-build-muscle-5-f a ctors-that-affect-muscle-growth/ and many other articles support that. The first year, you gain faster due to newbie gains, but after that, it is really slow. And at the age he is at, his testosterone is lower, so that number goes down even faster.

What? The older you get, the harder it is to gain muscle. 18 year old men have the easiest muscle gain since they have high testosterone. Old men have easier weight gain, but not muscle gain. Lower testosterone and such...

Check out theflatline's post. Those are some real nice triceps. Although since we don't have a pic of his arms from 2012 we can't really know for sure, but I would put money on him at least being on HRT.

I know. I didn't say muscle gain, just weight gain. Gibson seems to have his muscles covered by a nice layer of fat and old skin. He's not ripped or anything.
