In his latest video, the founder of ancestral living challenged a netizen who commented on his video. In the reel, Brian Johnson wrestled both his boys simultaneously while his wife did skipping rope. It looked like a workout session for the whole family. However, Johnson explained that through their activity, they performed eight of the nine ancestral tenets at once. He challenged people to do more than him and share it with him. However, one person left a sarcastic comment.

One of Brian Johnson’s tenets is called ‘Fight’, which is why the bodybuilding enthusiast regularly wrestles with his boys. However, one follower called out Liver King in the video after one of his boys got a chokehold on him. “Why don’t you move your other arm!? Oohh yeah! Pulled bicep,” commented the follower.

The individual added, “What number (ancestral tenet) is that one dude!?” While the powerlifter’s sarcastic comment garnered a lot of reactions, Liver King himself responded. “It’s the one that leads to our highest state,” Johnson replied. He also issued a direct, “primal” challenge based on his ancestral tenet ‘Fight’.

“Even torn, I’ll put my arms around you… let’s go together,” said the fitness influencer. The reason Liver King used only one hand to wrestle was because, during a similar session in January, the bodybuilder tore his left bicep tendon. Despite the handicap, the fitness influencer was confident he would win in a wrestling match with the Instagram user. However, this is only one example of the continued criticism Brian Johnson has faced.

It’s not just the fans who criticize Johnson

Since getting exposed for ste***d use, Liver King has faced the wrath of the fitness and bodybuilding community. He continues to do so even from fellow influencers and bodybuilders. 43-year-old IFBB pro Marc Lobliner labeled him “the white Kali Muscle,” barely a week ago.

Lobliner criticized Liver King for his lying to the community. Johnson claimed that anyone could get a physique like his if they followed the primal lifestyle, while he spent thousands of dollars on performance enhancers. The bodybuilding coach asked people to not fall for such lies again.
