I just can't see that Nelson would be injured as much as he is, if he would be taking PEDs
most common fan's who have zero knowledge of substances like these do not see that. So many misconceptions about compounds, peptides and hormones being used by professional athletes. As stated, you can very easily tear something or hyper-extend something even if you're the most juiced up athlete on the planet. In fact, you're probably MORE susceptible to injury when cycling as you're more apt to overdo your training in an attempt to reach a level.
HGH, however, is mostly used for recovery and is rarely leaned on for strength gains specifically. This is why so many older athletes turn to it, they are able to max out today, recover, play a game, max out tomorrow, recover etc.
I don't give this source much credit, he's been throwing stuff out for so long. Before basing any claims, I'd like to see substantial proof. Especially considering that when the names came out a few weeks back, only baseball players were named. I'd be shocked to find out that it's taken this long for other athletes names, especially the most high profile in the game, took this long to see the light of day.
