Brock Lesnar is the name which you must know if you’re at least any familiar with WWE wrestling, the UFC or Minnesota Vikings. I think so because it is one of the most famous guys out there and this thanks to his beast body. I think that it is well to say that this guy is one of the greatest physical specimens that we have ever seen so this is the guy who have achieved some very and very good success in wrestling and in MMA. If there’s someone asking me about the toughest guy out there, Brock Lesnar is the name which would get into my mind among the first ones.
If you would ever meet Brock in the street, then I doubt there are any chances you would confound him with someone else or won’t be able who this man – mountain in front of you is. He’s really physically imposing as he’s standing at 6 ft 3 and he is weighing in at approximately 286 pounds of muscles. I guess there’s no need to mention that there are huge muscles and a force that very few ones can compete with. If you think that there’s nothing else than just muscles with no avail then I’ve got to tell you – you’re very wrong. This guy is super strong and it is also really fast, if you don’t believe me then try beating his records as while he was on a trial for the Minnesota Vikings he has recorded a 225 pounds bench press for 30 reps, he have had a 35 inch vertical jump and he ran a 40 in 4.65 secs. I have big doubts that many can beat these stats. Or, if you still don’t think he’s a monster – try beating John Cena and The Rock in WWE. Well, this guy did, he has defeated them and so he become the youngest champ in history (during that time) at an age of only 25. Except for being a champ in WWE, he has also defeated Min Soo Kim on his debut in MMA and he also beat some really famous and big names such as Frank Mir and Randy Couture in order to become the UFC heavyweight champion. He’s a big monster that I personally wouldn’t want to fight with.
So, because of the sheer size of his body, Brock has got a lot of accusations that he has been on steroids and he received them for his entire career period. What do you think – are those accusations justified or Brock in indeed natural? In this article we’re going to try to find this out.
What does Brock say about Steroids?
One of the first thing that I try to analyze when I’m doing research about a guy whether or not he is on steroids – I am trying to find information on their own words about steroids intake. Are they on steroids or not according to their own words. One thing to mention is the fact that Brock Lesnar doesn’t actually deny that he uses steroids. After some pretty big steroid accusations that he has received in 2016, Brock has had a good chance to give his response about these accusations and below you can see an YouTube link with his response.
As much as you can hear in the video, Brock responded: “I’m write and I’m jacked, deal with it” and he also adds “what do you want me to say?”.
To my opinion, these are some pretty heavy accusations that can potentially damage an athlete’s reputation or maybe his entire career because we often heard that guys on steroids are viewed as cheaters. Even though he has got prime accusations he doesn’t deny using them. At no point he mentions that he’s not on steroids or that he has never used any performance enhancing drugs.
In addition to that, he has added “what do you want me to say” and usually, this means that he is feeling pressure and he is having a hard time to speak openly about this topic, hence he is asking someone else what to say. As much as we have been said, this type of behavior that Brock had while he got accused of using steroids is a sign of somebody who has something to hide. That’s just something that should be taken in consideration, however I doubt that only by this we can say for sure that Brock is on steroids. This doesn’t play handy for him, but doesn’t mean he is on steroids either that’s why we need to check it all further.
Does he have signs of Steroids?
Yes, he does seem to have signs of steroids intake and he seem to have many of them. That’s because analyzing Brock’s physique, I doubt I can say that he has a very natural looking type to his body. I checked many photos and videos of him and he has some very big bloating, as if he is retaining a ton of water, plus he has got a mild HGH gut all along with having really big cannonballs at his traps – all of which are not symptoms that usually characterize natural athletes.
Those guys that do not use steroids and are all natural usually have some tight waists, they are not retaining water and are having proportional androgenic muscle groups (shoulders and traps) while we often seen big guys with midsection the same as the all other body proportion, big stomachs and not very proportional muscle groups. As a general rule of thumb, if you can see somebody that they are lean (I mean, their abs are seen) but in the same time they are looking bloated and type of fat looking (with big shoulders/ traps) then they are most likely on steroids. Brock does look like this and in addition to that, he also has other symptoms as well: flushed skin can be mentioned here. Brock has often been seen with red skin and that’s a sign of a high body temperature. Usually, natural guys are going to get a pinkish skin color when they workout or do some other activities getting their high blood pressure up. But steroid guys do not get pink color but they get the red color. That’s because the steroids are very well known for spiking a user’s blood pressure and the body temperature which has a result the pink appearance to the skin (even without working out) and an increase in the sweating.
In the photo of Brock Lesnar many years ago we can already see him very big, with red/ flushing skin and big traps.
The gains timeline it is the most effective way, to my opinion, to determine if someone has been taken steroids or not (of course, without actually testing for it). we need to notice how the person’s physique has changed over the course of their life and that’s going to be a good sign whether or not they’ve used steroids. The oldest photo of Brock that I have managed to find is of him at 15 years old. From as much as we can see in that photo, Brock has indeed some very good genetics as I doubt that any other guy at 15 years old look like that. I do think that for a 15 years old guy, he is looking really big and jacked up. I do believe he has been the strongest/ biggest guy in his high school as a kid.
I think that much of it was thanks to the fact that Brock Lesnar grew up on a farm in Minnesota. As we all know, working on a farm is really labour intense and that’s why I think that Brock looked so jacked as a young teen as he always had to work with his hands. I have then found a photo of Brock only a year later at 16 years old but to be honest, I thought that it was lots of years later. Brock looked much bigger compared to his classmates but he looked so much more bigger compared to how he used to look at 15 years old. Are you ready for it?
Brock looks much bigger that what seems to be his professor on the right side of the photo. Comparing the 2 photos, it looks like Brock has gained approximately 80 lbs or so in a space of only one year! That is HUGE, even for a teenager! I might be wrong, although I have big doubts in this – gaining that much cannot be natural, that’s why I think that this should be a combination of using steroids (which you are going to gain approximately 50 lbs or so from using them) and the other 30 lbs he gained from relentless eating.
We can see in the photo that at the age of 16 years old he has more muscle mass compare to his prime – much bigger compared to other classmates. At that age, he does seem that his trademark traps, as well as the rest of his body is already huge and that’s before he has even finished puberty.
Then later I have found a picture of Brock at the age of 23 years old while he has been competing in the NCAA wrestling championships in his home state – Minneapolis. At the age of 23, he has arms bigger than some others 35 years old bodybuilders (nattys).
Just take a look at that photo – his shoulder/ traps look so evolved that it is near to impossible to get them to that size, especially at 23, without steroids. It does seem to me, by taking a look at that body composition that it has got evolved over the years, that he has nearly surely used steroids after the age of 15. Don’t get me wrong, gaining muscle size during the puberty is something absolutely normal, but to gain that much of muscle mass, such a muscle size and all of that in such a short period of the time it is something near to impossible to my opinion. I have big doubts that this is anything natural for somebody who might be having the best genetics out there.
In fact, I think that for somebody who would have the “best” genetics out there would already have been bigger than what would Brock looked like at his 15 years old and then later, he would have had gains, of course, but the gains would have been gradual up until the moment they finished the puberty. Nonetheless, Brock Lesnar definitely didn’t got a gradual transformation as he simply “blown up” in a period of a year.
I do realize that many might think now that Brock was too young in order to take steroids but I don’t think so. It is not a secret that steroid use is quite a common thing among teenagers, and especially among athletes/ sportsmen/ fighters which Brock seemed to be doing for a good while. It is pretty common for high school teen athletes to use steroids at such a young age as Brock seemed to have started to do when he was very young.
With all of this being said someone might be wondering – are there any other signs of him using steroids? yes, there are.
Brock has Failed Drug Tests
In 2016, Brock Lesnar has failed a drug test which proves he’s not drug free. He has failed a drug test prior to his fight with Mark Hunt. In addition to that, on the fight night itself he has failed another test and because of this he has been charged with a $ 250,000 fine and with 2 years suspension. For those wondering – I managed to find out he has tested positive for 2 anti estogens which are clomiphene and hydroxy- clomiphene. These types of substances are most often run by steroids users during a post cycle therapy protocol in order to boost the natural testosterone production back to the normal levels. In addition to that:
Brock Lesnar got Arrested for “Anabolic Steroids”
In January 2001, Brock Lesnar has been arrested for being caught with some “large amount of steroids”. However, he still got let off around 4 months later after he got arrested because it has turned out that this was a human growth hormone that technically (and officially) is not being considered as a steroid. But the compounds that Brock has been caught with, as it was described by his lawyer, were said to be as a “vitamin type of thing”.
He never failed any other tests
Since it is very likely that Brock Lesnar has been using steroids since he was 15 years old then many people might wonder why hasn’t Brock Lesnar ever tested positive for steroids prior to 2016 before the fight with Mark Hunt? Well, there are a few reasons why it may have happened. For example, after the entire controversy about Mark Hunt fight with Brock, the WWE has admitted that Brock Lesnar was not actually tested under their wellness drug testing policy. As they said, it is due to the fact that he has only been part time and has only appeared a few times each year.
Appearing a few times per year or not, he should have been drug tested, but he wasn’t – that’s how he could easily use steroids and not to be caught. Plus, that may be the reason why he only appeared a few times each year. Before that case, many people were assuming that Brock Lesnar has been tested exactly like other stars, which is not true.
Another reason is – even though USADA drug testing is known that they are catching some steroid users in the UFC, it is not a secret that many performance drug users are slipping through the USADA drug testing. There are a lot of people in sport who say that many steroid users are slipping through the test because of their poor testing procedures (and as they say – it may also happen because of potential corruptness either). Big names such as Conor McGregor, Michael Bisping, Joe Rogan are only a few that I can mention who have heavily criticized the USADA testing protocols saying that too many can pass through it.
This is the reason why Brock Lesnar (and I think many others as well) were able to pass the tests while being on steroids before finally being caught.
According to the facts and evidence that I have managed to find about Brock Lesnar, it does proves that this guy has taken steroids since he has been a teenager in high school and as much as it seems, this guy continued to use them while he has been wrestling and has been fighting in the UFC with drug testing protocol failing to catch him. 4 main factors indicate he’s been a steroid user for a long time: first is obvious – he has got some visual steroid symptoms on his body that can be seen with naked eye. Second he is not denying using steroids and never done it. Third – his gains timeline are not specific for a natural guy that doesn’t use steroids. He blew up in a year and he continue to grow nearly all his life. The last prove – he has been caught using anti estrogens. Taking in consideration all the factors that I have mentioned earlier, I am pretty confident that this verdict is true and in conclusion – Brock Lesnar does use steroids.
What Steroids have Brock Lesnar Taken?
There are a couple of reasons why make me think Brock Lesnar has been an adamant HGH user. This compound makes you grow really big – he got really BIG! This compound makes you have HGH gut and bloating – he does get this symptom. HGH makes your nose/ head get bigger over the years – Brock did got this symptom as well (will post a photo below) and also, police has caught him with a massive stash of HGH. With all of this being said, thanks to all these reasons, I am pretty confident that he is a HGH user.
The HGH is known for promoting bone and tissue grow (that’s why is called growth hormone) and that’s the reason why it makes your muscles grow, but it also makes your cranium and nose grow as well. plus to that, it makes your internal organs grow too and that’s why HGH users get the bloating looking midsection. Also, using HGH along with insulin then you might get extremely big traps, and that’s the case for Brock too, as much as we can see.
Nonetheless, using HGH alone can’t make you have such huge gains in your size in only a year as Brock has experienced when he was 15 years old. I think that for gaining that much of muscle mass he would have need to use some several bulking steroids. That’s why I think that this guy have used the following: Anadrol; Deca; Dianabol. As much as we can see, Brock seems to hold a lot of water. Anadrol is a bulking compound that is very well known for causing this side effect. But it is very well known to for helping to gain mass as well. Both seem to be the case for Brock. Dianabol and Deca are giving you some amazing muscle gains and I think that it is also the case for Brock, this is why his muscles are so thick and so full looking.
