Former Mr. Universe Tom Platz talked to high school kids in Michigan. One of the questions asked was about steroids. He states that “drugs don’t make the athlete, but they’re involved.”
He explained to the kids how the steroids won’t help the competitors learn to pose, that it won’t create a stage presence and does not give you professionalism.
He told the kids quite simply, “It takes much more than just the muscles to be a champion.”
Platz was in Michigan visiting his home state, and was an add on to Mike Vruggink’s NPC Grand Rapids Bodybuilding Championships in May 2013. The seminar gave participants an inside look at the fitness business from one of its acclaimed members.
