Over the better part of this century, bodybuilders have increased the natural performance of their bodies by using artificial substances. In episode 3 of Swole, we talk to a medical expert about the consequences from the use of anabolic steroids while following the daily routine of Mike Bolkovic, a bodybuilder who’s been injecting testosterone for the past eight years. Mike shares with us how the drug impacted his lifestyle and personal relationships.

Steroids might take you to the "next level," but even the most ardent users recognize there are often debilitating side-effects.

+steveleamont well you still look a good 45yo. You may feel 25 but unless you're on human growth hormone you're kidding yourself.

When you consider the amount of massive users of steroids in sports, wresting, body building etc and the same amount of "POSSIBLY" associated deaths from say cancer (I HAVE NOT SEEN ANY ACTUAL RESEARCH TO PROVE THIS CLAIM) its a very small chance even with the super users!

See tendon rupture in people lifting heaps of heavy weights every day! WOW that must the X NOT THE BIG FRICKING HEAVY WEIGHTS!

Proven totally unassociated with prostate cancer, (LOW TESTOSTERONE IS ASSOCIATED WITH IT) It does speed up P cancer if you have it!

Slightly thickens the blood (Nothing many other bad things such as DIET YOU OBESE AMERICANS OR EVEN CHUBBY ONES) . Take a mini asprin a day!

On the other hand growth hormone is really bad!

+Astro AquanautAquanaut, Getting your hormone levels back is different than having your testosterone levels 6 times higher than normal. Having your nuts shrink to the size of marbles isn't natural.

Lol the bodybuilding industry will never get a fair critique because of all the bullshit theories surrounding it plus all of the dumbasses that think they're real bodybuilders when theyre just juice heads

This video should be a lesson to all the idiots who are thinking of taking steroids. These a-holes on the video can't even breath and are suffocating on the cellular level because their cardiovascular system is shot. Their cells starve of oxygen because lungs can't process it at the capacity based on their size and mass.

I think people who resort to those kinds of drug methods are insecure inside and they need to boost their ego to over the top levels so they can feel happy, good luck with that, you're still not bulletproof!

Crazy what some idiots will do to their bodies just to look more beefed up. Vanity really is a great sin.

Once your body detects synthetic testosterone it shuts down the natural production and your balls become useless. All that so you can have big shoulders and lift more. I saw a youtube of Ronny Coleman the other day. The guy looks absolutely horrible and now walks with a cane.

I’ll never understand why people do this to themselves, just asking for a short life.

It can be a lifestyle till you have a heart attack and die

This shit is easily achievable in 3-5 years with a calorie surplus diet. 8 years on steroids and 14 years of lifting?
