Joe Rogan is convinced Liver King is on steroids.
In a recent episode of his podcast, Joe Rogan once again doubled down on the claim that popular fitness figure Liver King is on steroids. The bodybuilding personality has been claiming to be natural, but Rogan isn’t convinced at all.
Once known as Brian Johnson, the man now dubbed Liver King fancies himself a follower of the old ways. He follows a lifestyle that harkens back to ancient times and he is extremely dedicated to his fitness journey through natural means. Liver King is claiming that his physique was cultivated over many long years of all-natural arduous training. At least that’s how he tells the story. Joe Rogan on the other hand isn’t quite buying what Liver King is selling.
It appears that the drama between Joe Rogan and Liver King has reached a new level. With Liver King claiming that he’s not on steroids, Rogan appears to be doubling down. The popular podcast host appears fed up with the claims that the bodybuilder is all natural.

Rogan Doubles Down
In a recent podcast episode featuring the highly respected Dr. Andrew Huberman, Joe Rogan once again stated his beliefs on Liver King’s supposed natural status.
“The Liver King thing drives me nuts because that guy is on steroids,” said Joe Rogan. “Just shut the fu** up. I know he’s eating really healthy. It’s clear he’s eating all these animal foods and you know, he’s eating organ meat, which is very rich in nutrients, and that’s true but he’s dodging the main bullet.”
Joe Rogan went on to state that if Liver King is indeed telling the truth that he is a rare being among humans.
“Well, look at him. Do you know how rare it is to have a physique like that and not be on steroids. You would have to be in the 00000.1 percent of the human population. Just rare genetic freaks. I don’t care how much you lift weights, that is a freak physique.”
What To Do?
In truth, we can’t say whether or not Liver King is natty or not. While he may look like he’s taking performance enhancing drugs, the truth of the matter is we don’t have any kind of evidence to support this claim. Genetics certainly can get you most of the way there, as well as some consistent hard work. Rather than getting offended or angry, if Liver King actually is natural, he should take it as a compliment.
Perhaps the ultimate solution for this entire endeavor is if liver King is invited onto the Joe Rogan podcast. In that way, liver King and Rogan can have a clear cut discussion and we could perhaps get a definitive answer to whether or not the polarizing fitness figure is telling the truth about his natural status.
