Episode 676 P365: Steroids In CrossFit; Featuring Johnny Romano
May 8, 2016 10:32 pm
The use of PEDs in functional fitness has been talked about behind closed doors for years now. Mingling within any given CrossFit competition it is common to hear someone accuse an athlete of taking PEDs just because they happen to be doing well. Of course these accusation aren’t said directly to the athlete but rather mumbled between spectators. It is these conversations heard over and over that peaked my interest enough to seek the knowledge of experts. In tonight’s podcast I speak candidly with an expert in the field of performance enhancing drugs. I hope you all enjoy tonight’s special edition WODdoc episode.
John Romano is a well known and controversial writer and champion of the Libertarian cause. For 18 years he held the position of Senior Editor at Muscular Development magazine. He also contributed to Fitness Rx for Women magazine as well as Fitness RX for Men magazine, Musclemag International, Muscle Insider magazine, and T-Nation.com. He has authored and co-authored several books in the bodybuilding and fitness field. Romano also appeared as a performance enhancement advocate in programs on HBO, ESPN, ABC’s 20/20, and numerous radio talk shows, as well as consulted on, and appeared in, the critically acclaimed documentary Bigger Stronger Faster.
In 2009 Romano left Muscular Development and co-founded RX Muscle.com, the web’s top bodybuilding, fitness, figure and bikini contest coverage and media site. A founding member of the original Whack Pack, Romano co-hosted the wildly popular RX Muscle internet radio shows Heavy Muscle Radio and After Hours With the Whack Pack.
In 2011, Romano became Director of Internet Media at VPX/Redline, worldwide manufacturer of science-based sports nutrition and enhanced energy supplements, where he picked up where he left off at RX Muscle creating and integrating multi-media web content including online magazine, blogs and articles.
