Summary The subculture of hard-core bodybuilding offers unusually fertile soil for aggression and, in some cases, deadly violence. Studies have shown that the ingestion of large quantities of anabolic steroids can trigger episodes of violent rage in certain people. Researchers who have studied both bodybuilders and the effects of steroid abuse agree that these athletes seem more inclined to extremely violent behavior than performers in any of the more conventional sports. Murder in muscledom isn't uncommon.
