Is Hewitt on steroids ??

I was just watching the us open finals and noticed how skinny Lleyton was

and how his serve was fairly weak . This year at the australian open , he

was serving a lot faster judging by his stats and his arms gained a few more

inches since the last major . Could this be attributed to his hard work , or is

he using sports enhancing drugs like other sports athletes are using ??

Hmmmm....Judging by his skin complexion with all those pimples you might be about right. Yet, Hewitt got this new fitness crazy coach, which could make the muscles case clear. Some say ALL the players take something.

I am sure there are some muscle mass suppliments that are legal too. Who knows. I have seen guys make all kinds of progress in 6 months before hitting the weights.

Re: Is Hewitt on steroids ??

he wouldn't risk it there's too much drug testing around. i think he just worked pretty hard during the off season. although he was getting a few more mph on his serve i didnt think the muscles were doing an awful lot for his game, his groundstrokes didnt seem any more powerful than usual

My brother, who knows way too much about performance enhancing drugs said Hewitt's legs would have built up just as much as his arms [maybe more considering the amount of fitness work he does] if he was on steroids. I think he has just gained a bit of weight and worked hard at the gym. Let's face it, he has gained a bit of muscle, but he doesn't look like a member of the Chinese swim team

I highly doubt that's true...

As a fan of wrestling (which I hate to admit), there's many guys who have massive upper bodies, and twigs for legs.

It's all about what parts of your body that you want to focus on, I guess.

Re: Is Hewitt on steroids ??

I was thinking about this ever since the first tourney he played in this year. Sure it's possible that he gained a lot of musscle in a short amount of time but I'm thinking that he's on something.

Re: Is Hewitt on steroids ??

There are doctors out there who are specialized in covering a players use of performance enhancing drugs. Even though these players particiapate in random drug testing doesnt mean that a player is clean from using it .

Ben johnson should still be the fastest man in the world lol

The muscle has been built up gradually, but it is just more noticable now with the sleveless shirts.
