Big J’s Extreme Fitness is a popular YouTube fitness channel run by a former bodybuilding professional known as Big J. On there, you can find hundreds of videos presenting the progress of Big J as well as the development of other aspiring bodybuilders who train under his wing. Having said that, many wonder whether Big J is natural or not.
Well, he has already answered this question for you. In the video below, Big J says that he’s used gear under the form of muscle-enhancing substances in the past. Therefore, there is no doubt that he is not a lifetime natural bodybuilder.
However, he also states that he’s been drug-free for the last 10 years even though he is 260lbs/118kg and has visible abs. The interesting question is whether he is truly drug-free now. Below are a few points to consider before making your decision.
1. Big J is not a young guy
Big J is well into middle age territory which means that his testosterone levels are naturally declining. The lower your testosterone goes, the less muscle mass the body can maintain.
2. Steroids kill your natural testosterone
When you take steroids, the body naturally decreases its testosterone production. If this continues for a prolonged period of time, the body loses its ability to produce testosterone forever. That’s why most, if not all, professional bodybuilders are on TRT (testosterone replacement therapy) for the rest of their lives, even after they stop competing. This is another factor that leads to the conclusion that Big J doesn’t have the necessary hormonal profile to naturally weigh 260lbs with abs.
3. Big J resides in North America
In the corporation known as the United States Of America (note: the country is America, the U.S. is a corporation) the usage of steroids is prohibited by the law. Unless you have a prescription, you can’t legally take the stuff. That’s why admitting to the use of anabolic steroids on YouTube is problematic.
4.Athletes trained by Big J show signs of steroid usage
In the video above, you can see an athlete of Big J posing under his commands. The guy has a clear gynecomastia and an overall synthetic look. Therefore, it’s not like steroids are a myth in Big J’s gym.
