Thanks to the East Germans and their meticulous record keeping the exceptional performance enhancing effects of Turinabol are laid bare. To illustrate, a female shot putter with 14 years of prior clean training under her belt began her first doping program with three cycles of Turinabol over the season which consisted of between 5-15mg per day. Before she embarked on her doping regime she had a reasonable personal best performance of a little under 18m, but after her three Turinabol cycles she broke the world record with a throw of , a giant gain for someone who was already at the cusp of her genetic potential ! Records show she was administered increased dosages after this, working up to 35mg per day, which enabled her to exceed her previous best and throw . Of interest, even long after she ceased her doping program she still had a throw that was roughly one meter further than her previous clean best, indicating that doping has long lasting residual effects. So much for 2-4 year bans, eh?
