The Anabolic Cartel Podcast

The Anabolic Cartel Podcast is about Athletic Performance Enhancement in all forms. We are going to primarily focus on PEDs (Performance Enhancing Drugs). We want to bring awareness to those that choose to use PEDs. We want to talk about the positives and negative aspects that many are not aware of when they make the choice to use these drugs. We especially want the youth to know about the potential consequences if they choose to use PEDs at an early age. Nowadays it is a common sight in most gyms to see guys using PEDs for no other reason than to get big. They don't understand what they are actually doing to their bodies or how to minimize some of the risks associated with their use. Most of the people using these drugs today could probably reach their goals without using steroids but are not willing to do the research and put in the effort needed to get to their goal. This is why many turn to steroids. We believe that steroids do have their place for those that want to push past their natural potential but they shouldn't be used before a person has pushed the limits of what they can do naturally. These are all reasons why we are doing the podcast. We want to talk more openly about PEDs and their use with those who have knowledge and experience with the drugs. We will talk about the many myths surrounding these drugs. We will also discuss ways to help deal with some of the side effects that can occur from their use and ways to try to maintain health while using PEDs. We also will discuss the other aspects of performance enhancement such as diet, training protocols, nutrition, supplementation, and anything else that deals with human performance enhancement. We will have guests on the show ranging from PED experts, to doctors, PED users, professional bodybuilders, as well as professional and amateur athletes from a variety of sports. We hope you enjoy our edgy, detailed, look inside the dark side of Sports, PEDs…..

This episode introduces how Tristan got started in powerlifting and what he does for a living. We discussed what it means to be a professional powerlifter and compete in USA PowerLifting (USAPL) as well as the International Powerlifting Federation (IPF). Both organizations mandate drug testing. We also discuss how World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) testing works.

We enumerated his totals and best meets to date. He is currently one week out from a meet in Morgantown, West Virginia where he plans to hit a 1900 total at 264lbs. Tristan is a 6-time USA national winner of his class and a 5-time Team USA Competitor. His best totals are 340kg (748lbs) / 215kg (473lbs) / 345kg (759lbs).

Tristan sets a prime example of what hard work and dedication can do for an athlete when they are committed to succeeding. The fact that he can hit these kinds of numbers at 25 years old while being a strict drug-tested athlete is truly impressive. It is something that should be acknowledged more.

People rarely reach up to these kinds of numbers drug-free. Most can’t hit these numbers using various performance-enhancing drugs. These boost the athlete’s physical advantage but unfortunately, at the cost of their health. With that in mind, it is amazing to see that this is possible without any drug. 

The fact that he is drug-free and uses very little over-the-counter supplementation is commendable. He has nothing against Performance-Enhancing Drugs (PED) but at his age, he knows it does not align with his goals. It is quite profound to see this type of dedication and commitment in a world where everyone wants to see results overnight. It is refreshing to see someone who is going after their goals without any type of shortcuts.

You can reach Tristan on Instagram: @tank_power917 to see his lifts. Feel free to reach out if you are interested in sponsoring him. Tristan understands that at this point, he may be lucky to add a few pounds to his personal record each year and accepts it as part of the process.
