Joe Rogan has been outspoken about tinkering with his hormones for ages. He was one of the first and possibly the only celebrities at the time who were open about the advantages TRT has provided them.
“the big results come from trt, so there’s that, and then there are peptides that increase your body’s ability to grow hormones like growth hormones and igf-1 and all… “there’s bpc-157, ipamorelin, thymosin… what these things do is they help your body produce the hormones that it should have when you’re younger, and your body works better.”
“regular exercise is the biggest thing. If there’s ever one thing that someone can do to stop aging is to lift weights and don’t stop.”
“don’t do it for vanity. Do it because you want to keep your tissue. Age is like a little demon that is slowly robbing you of your tissue. Your ability to walk upstairs, your ability to open up jars, your ability to open the car door when it’s frozen… the only way to stave that off is weight lifting.”
But he’s one of the only people that have copped to it for a reason. Heck, even Dwayne the Rock Johnson claims to be all natural.
In 2009 Johnson admitted he has used PEDS during college saying:
“I tried it,” Johnson admitted. “Me and my buddies tried it back in the day when I was 18 or 19. Didn’t know what we were doing.”
But this sort of feels like a non confession because it’s awfully a lot like “one time, way back when” as opposed to something more methodical that his current physique implies.
Latest viral sensation Liver King is no different. Liver King aka Brian Johnson boasts of raw meat consumption and work outs that make him weep. What he doesn’t mention or acknowledge is that he’s likely on all sorts of PEDs.
After all Liver king is promoting his company – ancestral supplements. The supplements hope to be “offering the best, most nutrient-dense foods on the planet in a simple, consumable way.” as per their mission statement on the website. As you can see the supplements are meant to substitute beef liver, bone marrow and beef organs among other things.
And while it’s no joke looking that jacked – it’s not exactly likely he’s all natural. Joe Rogan explains:
‘Liver king drives me nuts. Because it’s clear, that guy’s on [PEDs].’ Rogan previously told neuroscientist Andrew Huberman adding that regardless of that his genetics are also like “.000001% of human population”.
He also doubled down on the call out on a recent episode featuring longtime friend, comedian Bert Kreischer.
Kreischer: “Your picture, I hope you don’t mind, it’s unreal. I wanted to leak it.”
Joe Rogan: “I’m on testosterone, unlike the Liver King. I’ll tell you the truth.”
Naturally the Liver King heard about the call out and replied:
““All I’m hearing is that Liver King is a freak of nature… and I couldn’t be more grateful to @joerogan !
Perhaps if we all stacked the sun and the earth… if we moved every day, twice a day… if we devoured nature’s most nutrient-dense superfoods… if we leaned into ALL 9 Ancestral Tenets… then high genetic expression would become mainstream.
The 99.99999% would represent the number of happy, healthy, and robust humans… instead of the number of people sleeping on their potential.
If you think Liver King is special, that’s okay. Just make sure you’re not looking for another excuse to be average.
You’re the only one who has to live with that choice, Primal.”
That post has since been deleted off of his social media.
Afterwards, Liver King in a conversation with Mark Bell responded to the scathing remarks of Joe Rogan. Thus, he said, “I don’t touch this stuff [PEDs].”
