I also read a while ago that HJ dried his body so much during his training that he almost had to go to the hospital.
lets not be naive.
I’m virtually certain that he did. Two giveaways. One is the rate of muscle gains. Without steroids, a man that is eating heavy and training hard can put on between 1-2 pounds of muscle per month . But, in order to gain that much, he has to “dirty bulk”, meaning, dramatically overeat and put on a lot of fat. Jackman exceeded the natural speed limit for bulking up.
He had less than 4 months to prepare for his role as Woverine. He was coming off of filming Le Miserabe where he was signifantly smaller. How on earth can you put on 30 lbs of pure muscle in 4 months? Only with drugs. PERIOD.
Using Dwayne Johnsons routine? The admitted steroid user? And how do you know hes off of steroids? He looks just as big as his WWF days. BS.
Second, his trainer is Mike Ryan. Mike Ryan is a famous celebrity trainer who used to be the manager of Gold’s Gym Venice Beach, which is a mecca of steroid-using bodybuilders. For instance, it was Schwarznegger’s gym. I believe that Mike Ryan is a roids coach. He has worked with other likely celebrity roid users (The Rock, Steve Austin, Edward Norton just before American History X, Mickey Rourke).
I repeat: I FIND NOTHING WRONG WITH HIM TAKING DRUGS. NOTHING. I'm just saying its dangerous for him to be on these cycles for over a decade.
