Bryson DeChambeau is one name that seems destined to be mentioned over and over again in the world of golf. Winning the U.S Open in 2020 may have shot this 26-year-old golfer into the limelight, but it seems that there are still more accomplishments to come from Bryson in both the short and long-term.
Bryson DeChambeau is no doubt a brilliant golfer and a legend in the making. It is his muscle mass increase that has got his peers and fans speculating about a possible use of androgenic-anabolic steroids. Now while there is absolutely no proof that steroid use by the “Mad Scientist” (as Bryson DeChambeau is fondly called), his phenomenal muscle bulk gain of 30 pounds (Ibs) or about 14 kg in just 3 months have raised more than a few eyebrows.
I. Could Bryson DeChambeau be using Steroids?
It was Brooks Koepka, a fellow golfer that took a sly dig at the Mad Scientist, suggesting that his impressive muscle mass could be attributed to the use of androgenic-anabolic steroids. While Brooks Koepka’s insinuation is no surprise to avoid golf fans, since he and Bryson DeChambeau have had spats in the past, it does however at the very least solicits a closer look into golf and their anti-doping program.
It must be said that Bryson has never failed a urine or blood test, but the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) doping protocol for the PGA Tour is not quite as stringent as it is for Olympic athletes. For example, a “whereabouts program” (where athletes have to give a daily report of their whereabouts to the USADA) is implemented for athletes scheduled to participate at the Summer Olympics, but no such program exists for the PGA Tour. Also, on the USADA official website, you can get to know the number of times athletes are tested for steroids and other illicit drugs. However, you don’t get to know when and how many times golfers are tested. The PGA Tour only informs the public when sanctions have been imposed on any of its golfers.
So it is quite possible for Bryson DeChambeau to use anabolic steroids in his training program in preparation for a PGA Tour tournament, then ease up some weeks prior to the tourney in order to pass a doping test.
II. Bryson DeChambeau Bulking Secret
Bryson DeChambeau credits his amazing weight gain to a strict training and dieting regimen consisting of weightlifting and the daily consumption of about 3,500 calories with loads of protein shakes (around seven per day). Protein is reputed for building muscle mass and helping with recovery from muscle strains or injuries. However, it is possible that Bryson DeChambeau also supports his protein consumption with androgenic-anabolic steroids and here’s what I think he could possibly be using.
III. Bryson DeChambeau Steroids
Considering that Bryson DeChambeau gained muscle mass quickly in a short space of time, it is possible that he could have been on a beginner’s roid cycle. This could have been standalone steroids or stacks taken under the strict recommendation of an experienced trainer.
Typical standalone roid cycles for beginners include:
Bryson DeChambeau could also have used needles and one bulking steroid for beginners that builds muscles fast is Primobolan. This roid is used intramuscularly and a 400 mg weekly dose for 8 weeks or 2 months should see you bulk up like Bryson in no time.
Dianabol or Dbol is a synthetic form of testosterone that suppresses your natural testosterone production replacing it with large amounts of synthesised test. A typical oral Dbol cycle consists of a daily minimum of 30 mg to about 50 mg taken for about 6 to 8 weeks or 2 months. Dbol also gives loads of energy, strength, stamina and unbelievable endurance.
Turinabol or Tbol is an oral AAS that can build your muscles within a short period of time. You should take 30 mg to 50 mg daily for 9 weeks or 2 month and one week.
Test Enanthate is derived from naturally produced testosterone and using 500 mg weekly (intramuscularly) for 8 weeks or 2 months should suffice for enhanced muscles and strength.
Deca and Dbol Stack:
When it comes to stacks to build muscles fast, then a Deca and Dbol stack works wonders. This is a popular stack used by bodybuilders just learning their trade. You should take 400 mg weekly of injectable Deca (for 10 weeks) with 10 mg daily of oral Dbol taken for 4 weeks then increased to 20 mg in the fifth week running to week 10.
Test and Dbol Stack:
Another stack that Bryson DeChambeau could have used to achieve 30 pounds or 14 kg of muscle mass in just 90 days is the Test and Dbol stack. You should take 200 mg weekly (for 2 weeks) of injectable Test which is boosted to 300 mg weekly (from week 3 to week 4) and then in week 5 the dose is further boosted to 350 mg weekly.
For oral Dbol, you take 20 mg daily for a couple of weeks, increasing this dose to 25 mg for 4 weeks. This means that you will use Test for 5 weeks and Dbol for 6 weeks when running this stack.
Note that when running these cycles you should consider using liver protection drugs and supplements to safeguard your liver, as Dbol has some level of hepatotoxicity that can cause liver damage. Also, you should include post-cycle therapy (PCT) in your training program to restore your natural hormones (like testosterone) back to their normal production level and reduce estrogen production.
It is possible that Bryson DeChambeau included any of the standalone or steroid stack in his training program though this cannot be proved, unless he comes out and admits it or he is caught for doping. However, considering how rapidly he bulked up, it is highly possible that he had a little (sic) help from roids.
