WATCH MORE OF VICE'S BEST OF 2017: https://vice.video/2CoZrYy 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. Watch VICE Roundup in the VICE channel on go90.

i started steroids when i was 20 years old, i was already in good shape, had been interested in bodybuilding since i was a kid and i had a traumatic experience when i was a teen, so i started my first cycle of 500 mg test. it was the shit, my body transformed, i could train harder, moore and my fat just melted. i noticed women started to notice me moore, not just because my appereance changed, but i became moore alpha, moore aggresive and even my odour smelled diffrent. i took 2 cycles after that and went from 90 kg to 120. i had to quit because of school and i was also a little tired because training was not so much fun anymore, it was becoming to seriously and i couldnt even walk out of my house because i had to eat or take a protein shake with me. i stopped cold turkey and focused on school. i stopped doing steroids cold turkey and still trained a little. i actually didnt loose any strenght or size, i just went from super big and fit to super big and a little fat. i still could bench 200 kg. the thing is my school become moore and moore important and i had to quit training all together and my natural testosterone never came back. i felt like shit for 5 years. i became fat, got manbobs. got depressed, i became a bitch, a beta male, non aggresive and afraid of people, i got social anxiety and low sex drive. now october 2018 i had enough, my testosterone was still as low as a 80 year old male, and i am 28. i had been training for the past 2 years and was in ok shape for not having any testosterone at all. i tok a cycle now for 4 months. 400 mg test a week and 40 mg anavar for 10 weeks and i completely changed myh physyque again. now im tapering the doses, just got a little high bloodpressure from anavar, and i have my last 2 weeks on 400 mg test. after that. im on TRT for life. 200 mg a week. thats what i get from doing drugs early life. the downside is, i will get bald faster, i have to take medication all the time and deal with side effects if i get any. the upside is that i feel much better, have moore sexdrive, moroe aggresive, moore motivation, better energy and a lot better quality of life

This guy's dealing, right? That's the only way I would think he's just dropping a few grand a month when he's cycling, unless he's also making crazy money.

These are the guys who abuse steriods and don’t eat right. They rely on outlandish doses to take. Also I’m Medical and science student who takes steroids and I’m fine because I take realistic doses, clean diet, and cardio. FYI I’m son of doctor
Nuno Ornelas (6 days ago)
Still, u look small, shame to 5percent, shame to rich piana
merces47letifer (7 days ago)
Please don't let these dumb guidos color your perception of steroids. These guys are the definition of meathead. Not indicative of intelligent use. Also, most American doctors have very, very limited knowledge on the subject. The studies on anabolics haven't been done, so the MD interviewed here doesn't really know about long term side effects and is regurgitating things she's been told. Btw, I don't use steroids and don't even agree with them. But, this is just typical shitty Vice "journalism" and it shows.
Testosterone is for the testes only geez 😂

i hope they know that all of their bodies look like shit. justbecause youre huge doesnt mean you have a good looking body by any means. any guy over 200 pounds who trains how to fight has a way better lookings body and will kill these dudes in a physical combat
Joseph1NJ (19 days ago)

Ro Saifoloi (19 days ago)

claudius peterson (19 days ago)
Your mom was right. Hope these dudes will change their mind. Don't really get why they are doing this to themselves to look big.
Jeff Bradley (19 days ago)
8 years working out+ gas? Not impressed.
dirty girl (20 days ago)
Steroids = heart problems. Then death ( usually around 45- 57yrs sad but true. Some look amazing some look a joke .
UnaSolida (22 days ago)
What an absolute exhausting lifestyle.
Scout Coker (23 days ago)
this makes me weirdly.....angry? It took me so long, it took so many doctors and therapists and endocrinologists, in order for me to start testosterone in order to transition. These guys got shelves full of it and are abusing it to ruin their bodies. The problems with the american healthcare system arent their fault, but they sure are taking advantage of it.
Juan N (23 days ago)
Seriously...who click on the video because of the nipple rings?
Alex Bove (23 days ago)
Wait till they want to stop and their body craps out. Good luck for real brother.

Physically strong Mentally weak
Ing. Joel Manzino (27 days ago)
i think they relayed their improvement only in steroids, NOT GREAT PHYSIQUES at all, not even if they were natural. This world not only requires effort (surely they haved done a lot), it requires intelligence. But great honesty from them tho.

The dude from the beginning is the only one that looks like he might take steroids... the other 2 look average somewhat muscular but not impressive. I bet if they had a proper diet and worked out properly they would've looked better + no enlarged internal organs and shit.
Elgin Rose (1 month ago)
It's not practical to be that big. Sure, you can get big muscles and be much stronger than the average guy, but shaving 30 years potentially off your life; no thanks. On average the life expectancy for a pro body builder is 45.

Tim Mitchell (1 month ago)
What’s the point? If he was natural and went to the gym as much as he does he’d probably look better and wouldn’t have any of these side effects. People are weird. Do you though bro

Bouncers look like this dude , trying to intimidate ... Its sad that you think muscles&tattoos give you prestige. We all know that most bouncers have self-esteem issues , who look like a anabolic roid rage waiting to happen.
