I came across this video on youtube and thought it was informative and interesting, so I thought I'd share it with my Rippeder fans. In this episode of Ric's Corner Ric Drasin discusses steroid use by bodybuilders in the 1970's and current use by pros today. He also gives advice on training. Ric Drasin was Arnold's training partner for four years. He is an artist, actor, stuntman, writer, personal trainer, former bodybuilder, and retired professional wrestler.
