Legendary pro wrestler and bodybuilder Ric Draisin, who was widely known as one of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s early training partners, was described as a WFN “ambassador and media partner”. Acclaimed documentary movie maker Chris Bell, who directed documentaries related to anabolic steroids and pharmaceuticals such as “Bigger Stronger Faster” and “Prescription Thugs”, gave a glowing testimonial praising WFN as one of the “top compounding pharmacies in the country” as “100% legal”; Bell spoke highly of “Dr. Rodriguez” for providing him with steroids and steroid advice.
Transdermal patches (adhesive patches placed on the skin) may also be used to deliver a steady dose through the skin and into the bloodstream. Testosterone-containing creams and gels that are applied daily to the skin are also available, but absorption is inefficient (roughly 10%, varying between individuals) and these treatments tend to be more expensive. Individuals who are especially physically active and/or bathe often may not be good candidates, since the medication can be washed off and may take up to six hours to be fully absorbed. There is also the risk that an intimate partner or child may come in contact with the application site and inadvertently dose himself or herself; children and women are highly sensitive to testosterone and can suffer unintended masculinization and health effects, even from small doses. Injection is the most common method used by individuals administering AAS for non-medical purposes.
