In the post, Linder wrote: "When I lost my gains because I went off everything for 1 year but then could not recover my own [testosterone] levels so went back on trt [Testosterone Replacement Therapy].

"Trust me I tried to stop but be aware it might have long-term effects for your life. Trt is a big commitment keep that in mind."

He continued: "Show lot of size differences like – swole and not swole u can see at chest etc all slim down even my waist is smaller back then.

"Also my stomach now due to my hernia surgery now it’s a new hernia there and it makes my stomach bigger.

"Overall this post should show that even as a natural u can look amazing and why you just need to get in shape!!"

Adding to the post, Lindner shared a before and after photo of himself, showing how TRT changed his body.
