Growth Hormones No Quick Fix for Muscular Physique: Stallone
Hollywood legend Sylvester Stallone has trashed people's "archaic" view of human growth hormones (HGH), by saying that the drug is not an easy way to get a quick muscular physique.

Last year, the 61-year-old star was convicted on charges of importing the muscle-building drug into Australia, where human growth hormones are illegal.

But the 'Rambo' star slammed rumours that he was taking the drug to quickly build up his physique before shooting for new sequel 'John Rambo'.

While speaking on U.S. TV show 'Today', Stallone said that people have a misconception about the drug and it is just an amino acid.

"It's not pumped up... What people don't understand about HGH is it's an amino acid. A long time ago people didn't understand what they were talking about so they lumped everything together. It's really archaic the way people perceive HGH," Contactmusic quoted him, as saying.

He claimed that building a muscular physique takes years of hard work and the drug is certainly not a quick fix solution for it.

"I only wish that it were true, that you can just take something like that and you're in shape. You've got to put years and years and years of hard labour to get in shape," he said.
