In his most recent Instagram post from two days ago, Lindner appeared to warn against the use of anabolic steroids.
“When I lost my gains because I went off everything for 1 year but then could not recover my own test[osterone] levels so went back on trt [testosterone replacement therapy],” he wrote on Instagram. “Trust me I tried to stop but be aware it might have long term effects for your life. Trt is a big commitment keep that in mind.”
“Last pic Show lot of size differences like – swole and not swole u can see at chest etc all slim down even my waist is smaller back then,” he continued. “To be aware the comparison is left no pump and right – natty pic is full pump. Otherwise it’s even more haha. Also my stomach now due to my hernia surgery now it’s a new hernia there and it makes my stomach bigger.
"Overall this post should show that even as a natural u can look amazing and y just need to get in shape !!”
Lindner discussed his past steroid use in a recent interview with bodybuilder Bradley Martyn, stating that he did "all kinds of crazy s***."
“I’ve tried different dosages, like the highest test[osterone] that I ever ran was 750 [mg per week],” he said. “I did never use one single compound more than 600 mgs” of other steroids in addition to testosterone.
“The craziest cycle that I probably did was … 100 mgs of [Testosterone Propionate] and 100 mgs of tren[bolone] every day,” he said. Trenbolone is used to increase muscle size in cattle. He said that he also used human growth hormone and insulin.
