You and me both.
People like her have the psychological stability of a lunatic.
You’re continuing with your false dichotomy. Saying I know nothing about the PGA is laughable. I watch as much golf as probably anyone here. I also play the sport (and shoot in the low-mid 80s, not exactly great but not a beginner either). As I stated earlier, I even went to all three years of Tiger’s tournament here in DC (AT&T National) and attended all five days (four tournament days plus pro-am). The sport itself has nothing to do with it.
What I’m arguing is against all these people in here that, due to their poor genes, bad workout habits (including overtraining), and bad nutrition, think it’s impossible to achieve the body Tiger has. Guess what, I look almost as big as Tiger (with a relatively low body fat %) and have been doing weight training for a less amount of time, and I don’t use gear. Just because Vijay works just as hard as Tiger (if not harder, I know Vijay is notorious for his workouts) doesn’t mean he’s doing the same stuff that Tiger does. Not all workouts are equal, and even if one is “harder” than another doesn’t mean they’ll have an equal effect. Vijay does a lot of Crossfit-type exercises, which are great for conditioning but not for building muscle. Tiger, on the other hand, spends a lot of time in the gym lifting iron, which is more conducive to hypertrophy.
Believe it or not, you put it best. These facilities are for “golf fitness”, which is not exactly the same thing as what Tiger does, which is lift weights.
As far his calves go, calves are one of the hardest muscles to develop. His calves don’t look particularly skinny to me, but you’d be surprised how many people who lift weights properly are self-conscious about their calf-size. That’s certainly no indication of drug use. Do you think people who use drugs like HGH and steroids don’t exercise in the gym? Because that’s not what they do for you. They essentially make overtraining a non-issue, which means more time in the gym (and bigger calves, not smaller).
I kinda feel sorry for the young women he has screwed around with.
Don’t get me wrong I’m not defending what they did but I remember (so many decades ago) what it was like to be a naive, gullible, and somewhat stupid young girl in my young to mid ‘20’s wanting to be loved and believing the lies of a few of the men that I dated.
I’d be negotiationg from a Paris penthouse and I’d have the biggest barracuda of an attorney that you can imagine. Bye, Bye Tiger baby...
LOL! Great picture. No he is not using steroids.
On tthe golf web site forums - they would ban you if you even mentioned it. Tiger and steroids is like talking about Obama’s birth certificate. You are silenced if you even bring it up.
I hope his wife cleans his bank account out!....
It always amazes me, that money will heal a broken heart/ego....
With some people its the only way to get some sense into them. To hit them where it hurts - their endorsements, their bank accounts. Tiger obviously doesn’t have a heart that love exists in.
If steroids etc really helped his golf game there would be more players using them —just so they could compete with him
Right now his attorneys are searching for the BEST SEX REHAB that money can buy.
Then they have to talk Tiger into it, which won’t be easy because he was never in a position before where he was forced to do something.
His pecs aren’t that developed
Probably doesn’t train his chest and back as much because it would tighten up his swing
If you had that kind of money and women all over you, you could not resist, that is my only point.
Thanks for admitting it about the calves. I guess the roids don’t get down there.
Tiger had his knee surgery and hiatus from the PGA for over 8 months a week before they started mandatory drug testing for ROIDs. One small fish recently got banned due to probably cold medcine. The PGA is so corrupt.
I doubt the PGA even tests Tiger because of the money he brings in. You are obviously a fan boy. I know personally how much progress you can make with the right diet and exercise routine. I use a routine Steve Reeves used and he was not on ROIDs. No way Toger got tha mass naturally.
See post #291 for updated photo.
Are you married, and do you cheat? Tiger didn't have women all over him. He hung out at cocktail lounges and used his bodyguards to approach women for him.
Many of us have them in our own families, and of course the suffering and pain is enormous.As long as they leave me and mine alone, why feel threatened by them? I hope Tiger gets on with his life and the Mrs. Woods gets on with hers so they can be happy.
I am amazed at the rancor towards Tiger Woods, that he could not live up to their expectations, as if he somehow threatened them personally. Do people live in fear of that conduct in themselves or in their own spouses , so that they must destroy others who are incapable of monogamy? LOL. Its a riot.
Many women on this thread treat every man in society as if they were married to all of them and can dictate views on Tiger Woods conduct, as if they themselves were also married to Tiger Woods. Sign of the busted bubble of internal romantic fantasies all gone awry? What a joke.
And what of liberty? Something which is nurtured by leaving the alone to sort themselves out. The crucify Tiger outpouring is just one more aspect of political correctness tyranny.
I disagree with Tiger Woods conduct, but trying to ruin the man is distinctly un-American.I woul dthink differently if he was an elected official who had a duty to the public trust, to be prptected from black mail and undue influence, etc, Tiger Woods owes the public no such duty.
Move on and leave him and his wife and kids alone.That is liberty.The opposite view is tyranny in the nature of the Scarlet Letter.
I’m sorry, but you’re obviously illiterate, or unable to comprehend what I’ve written. Admitted what about calves? I said his calves don’t look particularly small to me, and that calves are notoriously difficult to develop. Taking steroids doesn’t make that more difficult. Nor does taking steroids mean that you don’t have to workout. If anything, it enables you to workout MORE without overtraining. Had he been taking steroids it’s likely his calves would be bigger, not smaller.
I was a fan of Tiger, but not some fanboy (remember, I said I went to all three years of his tournament here in DC, even the year he didn’t show up because of his injury - and I didn’t follow him around, I sat in the same spot and watched ALL of the golfers).
Are you trying to imply that he purposefully broke his leg in two places and tore his ACL in order to cover up his supposed drug use? Because that’s pretty far-fetched. Anyone who watched that US Open at Torrey Pines could see the guy was in obvious pain and needed surgery.
I’ll say it again - a muscular 185lb guy (which is all Tiger is, he’s not some 300lb bodybuilder like Ronnie Coleman) is not impressive. I weigh 180lbs at 5’9”, and have a relatively low bodyfat percent. And I started at around the same weight Tiger did. Are you saying that my existence is impossible without steroids?
I am not married to you.
