Anabolic steroid usage
Kuznetsova is open about using anabolic steroids, and also takes estrogen blockers. She has admitted to taking 150 – 200 mg of Primobolan or propionate before competitions, and 20 mg of oxandrolone on training days. She claimed she was at one point tempted to also try growth hormones, insulin and peptides, but ultimately decided they were not for her. She has claimed steroids give professional powerlifters an edge during competitions, and sports she currently is involved in do not require drug tests.
