When he is not commentating on some of the most highly technical fights in the UFC, Joe Rogan is busy doing stand-up comedy or hosting the biggest podcast on earth. Fans also know him to be a workout freak. Rogan has an insane physique for a 55-year-old. Joe has always been very honest and upfront about his workout regimen, equipment of choice, and the supplements he takes.
During one of the episodes of The Joe Rogan Podcast, the Texas resident shines light upon his usage of Hormone Replacement Therapy and TRT (Testosterone Replacement Therapy). At the end of his 30s, Joe went on board with the idea of HRT. Initially, Rogan started with cream and then progressed to injections. Turns out, HRT was the exact thing he needed.
Joe shares, “Testosterone, it helps. I’d fail all those tests. Testosterone Replacement Therapy. Hormone Replacement Therapy. I started doing all that when I was forty. It makes a big difference. F**k yeah. Everybody, listen to this. There is a stigma attached to this. All that matters is that you have [testosterone] in your system. If you don’t have it in your system, you’re not gonna feel as good.”
Joe further elaborated, “This is 2018, Hormone Replacement Therapy exists for a reason and that reason is it makes you feel way better, and makes your body work better. You can avoid a host of ailments and conditions that are related to your body breaking down due to age, with HRT.”
“The key to doing it though is to do it correctly. This is a many many many month process that I went through,” added Rogan.
Joe Rogan has maintained a better physique using HRT
With Kettlebells, elk meat, and kale juices, Rogan’s health procedure is very identical to the athletes he watches compete every weekend. the 55-year-old has been very public about his use of medical marijuana, TRT, and other things that are looked down upon by many.
However, Rogan didn’t always have the chiseled physique that he does in his 50s. When he had just broken into the stand-up comedy world, Rogan looked like an average Joe with a skinny frame. But as he began to appear more bulky and shredded later in his life, fans have always speculated that the UFC commentator has been on HGH (Human Growth Hormone).
In a 2011 episode of his infamous podcast, Rogan did confirm it by saying, “I took a lot of different stuff. Now, I take human growth hormone and testosterone. I go for Hormone Replacement Therapy. I don’t need more [testosterone]. It’s a very light dose. It’s healthy. It does wonders for your body.”
At one point, the former kickboxer used to shoot himself up with TRT on a weekly basis. He shared that professional athletes would get in trouble for following such a routine. However, since he isn’t a competing athlete, he likes to indulge in his weekly testosterone boost. As per Rogan, this is his way to cheat aging.
It is worth mentioning that Joe has been honest about everything that he has injected into his body. However, the former Fear Factor host has been equally encouraging about the importance of regular exercising and a healthy diet. In fact, Rogan has stated that the most important thing an individual can do to slow down aging is to work out.
