WATCH: Can Steroids/PED’s Kill You?
Ameen Alai has been involved in bodybuilding for over 20 years and has coached some of the best athletes on the IFBB Pro/NPC stage.
As a number of federations are trying as much as possible to control the use of steroids and as well ban them, it is a problem that is still around in EVERY major sport.
As bodybuilding has a stigma that they are the only sport that have athletes experimenting with steroids, this is completely wrong. A number of athletes from football, cycling, baseball, boxing, weightlifting and others have revealed they have taken steroids.
On Youtube, hundreds of videos are published about the use of steroids. Finally a honest video about what the effects steroids can have on a individual has been published. Ameen Alai explains what happens when you abuse the use of steroids and explains the problem with everybody thinking it is a magic pill to turn you into a pro bodybuilder.
Why should we listen to Ameen? Well, he has seen people rise to the top and crash to the bottom with the abuse of certain substances in his long career. Ameen is literally the first ‘Guru’ in the sport.
This is a must watch as it is probably the best video on the subject!
Ameen, “the Mad Scientist”, Alai has been perfecting the science behind achieving the 90’s era look of bodybuilding for over 20 years.
Known today as Classic Men’s Bodybuilding, it is the look of a symmetrically proportionate lean healthy muscular physique, while simultaneously having a full and dry appearance.
Ameen started out bodybuilding at the age of 15 and quickly accelerated towards competition within 2 years.
At his first competition at the age of 17 at the AAU Mr. Metro bodybuilding competition, he won several top acclamation’s including most muscular teenage overall and Best Poser. He then crossed over into the Adult class wining the Short division (only 1 point shy of wining the adult division).
In his competitive career, he’s won 5 first place out of 7 competition and is currently planing on making a come back in Classic Physique at age 45.
Ameen started coaching at the early age of 18, beginning with his older brother Adin Alai who won his first competition beating the young King Kamail at the AAU Teenage Mr. D.C. bodybuilding competition in 1990.(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KJbiEDzl-sk)
Ameen went on to compete and win both Novice and open lightweight division in the 92 D.C. Grand Prix at the age of 19, only a week after his 19th birthday, making him the youngest nationally qualified bodybuilder in the history of the D.C. and the surrounding states of Virginia and Maryland at the time.
Ameen has coached several bodybuilders from his home town of Alexandria Va. including King Kamali, Dave Bautista and Don Long to mention a few.
From there, many people searched for his knowledge and he began advising people such as Don Long, Craig Titus, Toney Freeman, John Meadows, famed political consultant Roger Stone, and most recently, working with Dr. Tony Huge.
He has been mentioned in several magazines including Flex, Muscular Development and Men’s Health and co-wrote an article in Flex magazine on the “window system”, describing the use of carbohydrates to create optimal timing for amino acids to be absorbed into the cell.
Ameen has acquired his knowledge in over 20 years of research into the advanced development of the human physique in the safest most effective way possible.
Ameen is a pioneer in the use of PED’s, being one of the first to research the use of HGH and Insulin in the application of bodybuilding.
