Published on Jun 15, 2017 9,345,186 views

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 whoโ€™s been injecting testosterone for the past eight years. Mike shares with us how the drug impacted his lifestyle and personal relationships.

  • Delilah Jones
    Delilah Jones 1 week ago Do you know those products which body builders inject into their muscles to make them grow to really large? They inject oil into their muscles and their muscles become really big. Well I can seriously recommend injecting these products. I have a regular build, no real muscle mass. Iยดm actually quite skinny. But I have been injecting these products into my anus for 17 and a half years now. My asshole has now reached the size of a car tyre. I wear normal size jeans with a hole cut in the back and walk around with my asshole hanging out at the back. It has its advantages. Recently I went to the movies. A tall guy was sitting in front of me. He would normally block my view but as I sat down I could see right over his head. My asshole was like a great big cushion. The people behind me were shouting "get out of the way...asshole"!

    CK ONE 2 weeks ago Thatโ€™s an ignorant statement. Been on controlled doses of testosterone for years cause I have low testosterone for years now. Itโ€™s helped me battle depression and also helped me get through a 40 hour work week tattooing plus working out. There are so many benefits to men over 40 getting prescribed of those is combating suicide in males over 40. In the 1970s big pharma dig a study with congress and the main reason they outlawed testosterone was because they said it was better then anti depressants. Of course meetheads like this abusing it are going yo have major issues. Under a doctors care though itโ€™s completely safe. My levels are checked all the time, kidney function etc. all the info is out there just look for it. You guys are full of shit

  • Ian Duke
    Ian Duke 1 month ago (edited) 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!
