Fitness YouTuber says bodybuilders who've used steroids will be lucky to live past 45

Fitness YouTuber says bodybuilders who've used steroids will be lucky to live past 45

Derek said bodybuilders are unlikely to make it past their mid-forties if they have used steroids since early adulthood

A fitness YouTuber has revealed bodybuilders shouldn't expect to live into their 50s.

Derek, who has amassed more than 1.63 million subscribers on his More Plates More Dates (MPMD) channel, recently sat down with Chris Williamson’s podcast, where they discussed bodybuilding.

The fitness educator and entrepreneur, said bodybuilders are lucky to make it past 45 if they have used steroids since early adulthood.

According to Bro Science, he said: “In general, I would say if you are pushing the envelope full tilt in the open bodybuilding division you would be lucky to make it past 45 years old if you are are doing full tilt bodybuilding the entire time.

"If you were going hard from teenage hood to 45, blasting every single offseason, weighing up to 300 pounds, cutting down to 260-270, you know sometimes less depends on the height of the guy I think the top guys of the sport, I would be impressed if they came out at 45 years old retired and like still lived a normal duration of life.”

The YouTube star also recently appeared on The Joe Rogan Experience, where he touched on the Liver King lying about his steroid use.

Derek condemned the star for deceiving the public to promote his ancestral lifestyle, claiming that raw foods are the secret to his shredded physique.

He said: “I understand not wanting to talk about the other s**t, because he was on Winstrol, Deca [Dexamethasone], high amounts of GH, ect., which is not ancestrally consistent, but neither is HRT (Hormone Replace Therapy).”

He continued: “I guess it kind of spits in the face of his message too much that he couldn’t wrap his head around justifying coming out and saying, ‘I’m on HRT, but I do this other stuff’."

The apology video made by the Liver King, whose real life is Brian Johnson, was posted earlier this month, revealed that he hadn’t been entirely honest with his audience over the years.

“I’m here now to set the record straight,” Johnson said as he breathed a big sigh.

“Yes, I’ve done steroids, and yes, I’m on steroids, monitored and managed by a trained hormone clinician.

"Liver King, the public figure, was an experiment to spread the message.”

Following his confession, Johnson left viewers outraged, with many accusing him of being insincere in his apology.

One person wrote: “Haha I love how he tries to justify his deception by angling it as a fight against suicide and depression. Instead of fully owning his mistake. Not a real apology at all.”

Another said: “This has got to be the most comedic apology yet, he even delivers it shirtless LMFAO.”

While another commented: “Love the shift to ‘this is about mental health’, after getting caught lying.”
