Gordon Ryan, for sure one of the most controversial grapplers in the community. A week ago he started an extremely sensitive topic, the use of PEDs in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and you know what? HE’S ACCUSING PEOPLE OF USING STEROIDS!
Gordon Ryan Accuses Lachlan Giles of Steroids Use, which caused a lot of discussions. Again, Gordon attracted a lot of attention on social media, and again the question, is Gordon Ryan on steroids? This is a highly requested topic for the last couple of years. As we all know Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu as a sport is filled with the most cranked looking athletes in it. To be honest, the main reason for that is because there are no regular doping tests. Only one major organization (IBJJF) is doing regularly tests on the athletes.
In an interview for Flograppling, from 2017, Gordon was talking about his physical transformation. He says that all guys he wants to compete against and beat are all about 230, 240 pounds, and that’s the main reason he decided to gain weight. However, Gordon again gets the most attention when he said: “Everyone at the highest levels, for the most part, is on something you know, like our team is pretty much the only people who I think don’t use steroids, to a certain degree.”
And that means he doesn’t use steroids because he’s part of his team, right?
Gordon Ryan amazing transformation
Before we get onto the topic let’s take a look at Gordon Ryan’s transformation cause it’s one of the most impressive and one of the best before and after’s in the history of Jiu-Jitsu. In the period between 2015 and 2017, he achieved an incredible body transformation, which you can check out in the pictures below or just go to his Instagram profile. He’s not ashamed of his body that’s for sure.
Natural Or Not?
When we look at Gordon Ryan, we can see outstanding technique accompanied by the body of a Greek God. Many members of the Jiu-Jitsu community are pointing to steroid usage. But first, let’s take a look at some facts. Gordon’s girlfriend Nathalia Santoro is a former bodybuilding athlete that competed at the highest level in the bodybuilding game. Nathalia acts as his training partner and also as a mentor in the gym. Well-earned experience from bodybuilding helping Gordon in the gym.
Another fact that people don’t see is the hard work. Whether on steroids or not, such results require hard work and a lot of sacrifices. The last and probably the most important fact, which could be the keys to success, you guessed it, it’s nutrition.
And what’s even more interesting Gordon Ryan explained in detail what he did and how he did it. So, if you really want to know how he did it or at least what he said he did, he explained it pretty well in his e-book and DVD. So, why not give it a try?
When we put all these things together, we get a solution to the problem, or something else is missing, what do you think?
