Phil Heath plays “natty or not” regarding Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson on Bradley Martyn’s podcast

In a recent episode of Bradley Martyn’s Raw Talk podcast, renowned bodybuilding legend and 7x Mr. Olympia champion Phil Heath delved into the ongoing debate surrounding whether Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson utilizes steroids or testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) to maintain his impressive physique.

As a prominent figure in both professional wrestling and Hollywood, ‘The Rock’ has consistently drawn attention for his muscular build and athleticism, prompting speculation about the potential use of performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs). This scrutiny has been further fueled by inquiries from notable personalities like Joe Rogan and insights from former Mr. Olympia Jay Cutler.

Cutler, a four-time Mr. Olympia champion himself, has acknowledged the sensitive nature of discussing PED use among public figures like Mike O’Hearn and The Rock, emphasizing their right to privacy regarding such matters. He also pointed out the difficulty in discerning PED use based solely on physical appearance, particularly noting The Rock’s size and muscularity.

Does Phil Heath think Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Uses Steroids?

Phil Heath, a seven-time Olympia winner, echoed similar sentiments during his appearance on Bradley Martyn’s podcast, offering a nuanced perspective on The Rock’s physique. Heath emphasized that while The Rock possesses an impressive physique, it is not excessively bulky or exaggerated, suggesting that his size and muscularity are achievable through natural means.

“I have no idea because if I look at him, I have no idea. Dude, I don’t want to slam DJ on this but he is not as big as people like, I’ve seen you know what I’m saying. He is 6’5 bro, like 6’5. How much you think he weighs? That’s achievable.”

Phil Heath also points out The Rock’s Samoan ancestry and their natural tendency towards being bulkier and large framed. In addition to this, he notes that The Rock has been an athlete his entire life. Much like Mike O’Hearn – that level of consistency and dedication to strength training can pay dividends.

“He is part Samoan, dude. Have you grown up with Samoans? Them motherfuckers are jacked. I am going to keep it real, no because he has been an athlete his whole life. You are going to carry something. You’re not going to just wither away.”

Is Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson on TRT?

Furthermore, Heath entertained the possibility that The Rock might be utilizing TRT, given his consistent maintenance of a lean and muscular physique over the years. However, he refrained from making definitive claims, emphasizing the importance of respecting individuals’ privacy regarding their health and fitness regimens.

The speculation surrounding The Rock’s alleged PED use extends beyond Heath and Cutler, with eight-time Mr. Olympia champion Ronnie Coleman also weighing in on the debate. Coleman suggested that The Rock might be using “a bit of something” to achieve his physique, further adding to the ongoing discourse surrounding PED use in the entertainment industry.

Ultimately, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson continues to captivate audiences with his remarkable performances and impressive physique. Whether his muscularity has been attained through natural means or with the assistance of PEDs remains a subject of speculation. However, what remains undeniable is his dedication to fitness and his enduring legacy as both an athlete and an actor.
