He continued, “You know, probably not, sorry, only a very few people over the years win the Olympia, so like, you are probably not going to. Just don’t f*k your sh* up. Don’t be an idiot. And if you love training, just fucking go after the other things. There’s a few things like natural supplements that actually have been proven to work like Turkesterone, Tongkat Ali, Fadogia Agrestis, and a bunch of things that people can take as well as creatine, protein and all that sh**, the basics. So focus on that stuff first. “
