BY: It is amazing that you won countless titles as a 100% drug-free bodybuilder. You were beating athletes who were not only taking steroids, but also prescription-grade diuretics. 

However, your drug-free status would change when you received that fateful call from Joe Weider, who instructed you to “go see my doctor... he’ll give you the supplements you need.” What you would receive, as you wrote in your book, was a shot of the steroid Deca Durabolin.

Do you think, as Joe Weider was herding his athletes in to see “the doctor” that he had any idea the impact drugs like these would have on the sport for decades to come?

RR: I was in my own world of training and developing my physique, I had no clue what steroids were. 

I ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT YOU BUILD YOUR BODY
WITH GOOD NUTRITION, HARD WORK
AND VISUALIZATION OF WHAT YOU WANTED
YOUR BODY TO LOOK LIKE

I would envision what I wanted my body to look like and I worked towards it. 

I entered all those shows. I didn’t win all of them, but the ones I didn’t place in, I won all the body parts (best arms, chest, back, abs) and most muscular. I was blessed with genetics that created a shockwave in bodybuilding.

I am sure that Joe was aware of the echo he was creating in the world of bodybuilding, when he directed us towards visiting his doctor, for the “supplements”. 

All you have to do is read the book about the 3rd Reich in Germany, it will tell you everything your want to know about Deca. It was widely used by the German soldiers. 

I was injected with 200 mg of Deca Durabolin every two weeks with B-12, Calcium and Glutatione, intravenously. It transferred my blessed natural genetics into a marvel that still stands out today, even at the age of sixty-seven... 

MY PHYSIQUE WAS MADE FOR BODYBUILDING

BY: It really hit home for me when you talk in your book about Joe Weider and his magazines being the initial inspiration for your to become a bodybuilding. Many of us can really relate to that. It was those same sorts of images that planted the seed in us, that if we worked hard enough, we could achieve the level of health, fitness and physique that we dreamed about.

That being said, later in the book there sits one of the most powerful and hard hitting passages ever. It reads,
"... with Ben Weider controlling the competitions, the IFBB and its worldwide affiliates, and Joe’s magazine proclaiming himself the trainer of the champion. the Weiders had successfully monopolized bodybuillding. Joe sent me, one of his top athletes, to doctors who administrated steroids, just as Hitler was known to have done to his soldiers, and to athletes before the 1936 Berlin Olympics. Joe’s propaganda was convincing people around the world that they could achieve the physiques of his stars by using his supplements and following the diets and routines printed in his magazines. The part he left out was that these bodybuilding stars were on steroids, not weight-gaining supplements, and that training and diet protocols for a natural bodybuilder and one on steroids are completely different. Joe ahd his Muscle Builder magazine were misleading fans and aspiring bodybuilders, and I was part of the machine. Yet staying with the Weider empire was the only way for me to realize the dreams I had dedicated my life to... "

Robby, Joe Weider, the undisputed "Godfather of Bodybuilding“ recently passed, leaving behind his legacy. How should the thinking-man’s bodybuilder remember Joe Weider?

RR: If I had not gotten the letter from Joe, you nor others in the world, would have hear about Robby Robinson. I never would have gotten far. I never would have won all those big shows. 

Yes, I did have some adversity, but it made me a stronger person, both mentally and physically. I was glad to be part of the stable of bodybuilders that Joe had assembled. I feel he earned the title “The Godfather of Bodybuilding”. 
THANK YOU, JOE

Robby,

since u took the initiative & talked candidly about steroids,can u give as a rule of thumbs for the effect of steroids to the bodyweight of a BB..?

For example,a Mr. Olympia who is
5'11'' may weigh 260lbs,in champion condition...

What % of that bodyweight is due to steroids..?
3%,5%..?

If he was totally natural,would he probably be...250lbs..? 240..?

What is your guess..?

harrysmatic said...

In order not to be misunderstood,the point that I try to verify is that...a champion is a champion,steroids or not...

If all pro BB were fully natural,they would be..10 (?) lbs lighter ,but still retain their comparative advantages or disasdvantages to each other...

Steroids don't turn a mule to a race horse...
They turn a race horse to a ...better-racing race horse...

Do i get it right..?

You didn't use test and deca in the same time ?

Thank's
