According to the report, Bigbie admitted to purchasing and using a variety of performance-enhancing substances from Kirk Radomski from 2001 to 2005, including human growth hormone, Deca-Durabolin, Sustanon, testosterone, and anti-estrogen drugs. Bigbie was introduced to Radomski through former teammate David Segui. Segui reportedly instructed him on "training regimens and the use of creatine, a legal muscle builder, before teaching him about steroids and eventually injecting him with Deca-Durabolin". After he started using steroids, Bigbie gained 30 pounds while maintaining a body fat percentage of 7%.
