For many men, it’s not enough just to look fit. Men want a muscular body with large muscles. This gives them a sense of superiority over other men (males). This natural desire takes its roots in the wild, where the beast that is the strongest (that is, it has large muscles) wins. Celebrities are no different from ordinary men. Some of them want to lose weight and be fit, while others prefer bulking. The red-haired comedian from America had an outstanding transformation of his body, which became the subject of attention of many Internet users. In this article, we will try to figure out whether Carrot Top takes steroids or not.
Advantages and disadvantages of using steroids
It is important to know what are the advantages and disadvantages of steroid drugs. Individuals who take these drugs can develop substantially greater muscle mass and strength than they would get without using steroids. They also recover faster after training, which allows them to visit the gym more often than ordinary people (“naturals”) do. Unfortunately, along with these advantages, there are some serious risks. The use of steroids is associated with the following side effects:
- increased aggression;
- increase in the level of “bad” cholesterol;
- increased risk of developing cardiovascular diseases;
- increase in hair growth.
It would seem these side effects outweigh the useful effects of steroids. But, unfortunately, not everyone understands this. It’s one thing when we talk about professional athletes. They are forced to take anabolic medications to be able to compete on a professional level. Other celebrities often start taking steroids simply to satisfy their ego. But they rarely think about the risks of using anabolic drugs.
Lifeway of Carrot Top
Scott Thompson was born and raised in Coco, Florida. In 1983, he graduated from the school of Cocoa High and entered the Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton. Studying in the first year of the university, he first appeared in the genre of stand-comedy with Josh Abelson. Two months later, the future famous comedian takes part in the night of an open microphone, held on the campus of the university. This was the beginning of his exciting career in the field of comedy.
The comic repertoire of the comedian is rich on jokes based on the use of a lot of the props, which are stored in boxes placed on the stage. Getting a prop, he, as a rule, ironically characterizes it and then throws it away. Many of these props are designed especially for the performance.
Carrot Top and plastic surgeries
Carrot is famous for his extraordinary appearance and self-destructive humor. In an effort to preserve the unique traits of his face, Carrot resorted to a number of facial plastic operations. The exact list of surgeries is unknown, but we can assume that the surgical intervention was carried out on the comedian’s brows, which look unnaturally curved today, as well as all on the facial skin that is too fine & stretched for the middle-aged man. Now the actor’s face is more like a terribly animated mask than a face of a human. So, the funny smirk of a comedian scares persons rather than makes fun. As you understand, plastic surgery is not the only method of artificial improvement of appearance that was used by Carrot.
According to some online sources, Carrot started training in a gym in 2001. Experts say that it is possible to gain good muscle mass with the help of training alone. However, there are some signs that suggest that this person uses chemicals. The muscles of “chemists” look very bulked and unnatural. Also, their bodies are characterized by great vascularization (this issue will be discussed below).
Carrot Top and anabolic steroid drugs
The red-haired comedian claims that he managed to build his incredibly muscular body with the help of dedicated training in the gym for as long as 15 years. In addition to strict diet, which contains a very large amount of protein, Carrot Top also says that he adores training in the gym. He even says that he does not miss work with iron, even when he is on tour, traveling around the country and performing his stand-up.
The comedian repeats that he worked very hard to get the figure of his dream. He knows that there are rumors that he used steroids. He tries to joke about this. Also, the comedian believes that sooner or later he will use these rumors as a material for his comedy performances. Despite self-irony and Carrot’s statements, we can say that his body looks unnatural. It is a common practice for many people to use steroids and not admit it. After all, as we know, in the US, there is a special law prohibiting the illegal distribution of steroids. In addition, it is forbidden to use these drugs to improve athletic performance, in contrast to the treatment of certain diseases. Therefore, it is quite logical that many people do not admit to using illegal steroids. Perhaps they are also afraid of public condemnation.
Let’s return to the main topic of our article. If you look at Carrot Top steroids before and after photos, you will definitely think that he is an anabolic steroid user. According to some fitness sources, the bulging veins over Top’s great body are an important indicator that he is getting medical assistance other than the two protein shakes at the comedy club. Most probably he used not a single steroid alone, but a whole steroid stack. This stack probably includes such meds as testosterone enanthate and Dianabol.
However, Carrot Top does not recognize the use of steroids and we certainly cannot know what drugs he is taking. Perhaps he will make a coming-out someday and we will find out everything. But it seems to us that it is unlikely to happen.
