... Nos résultats viennent dans l'ensemble apporter du crédit aux effets bénéfiques de l'espoir sur la performance, dans le cadre des pratiques physiques et sportives.

... Gym users have been reported to use almost 30 times the recommended doses of injectable AAS [6,7]. Doping-untested competi-tive strength athletes, including powerlifters, strongmen, armlifters, etc., are infamous for their doping substance abuse [5,13,14], but their exact doping regimens are not known. Most of the previous doping-related surveys have been conducted among recreational gym users [6,7,[9][10][11][12]15], and the difference in the doping use pattern among competitive doping untested athletes and recreational gym users is likely prominent. ...
