American bodybuilder and model Mike O’Hearn carved his own space with his insane longevity in the fitness industry. In a recent video posted on his YouTube channel, O’Hearn hit back at the haters who got fish hooked about his use of Synthol.
Fitness sensation Mike O’Hearn has proven to be one of the most consistent athletes of the last few decades. He first gained attention for his jacked physique as a bodybuilder who won the Mr. Natural Universe title four times. Besides competition, O’Hearn’s aesthetic qualities led him to succeed in modeling. He won Fitness Model of the Year seven times and has graced the covers of more than 400 magazines.
O’Hearn found his passion for acting in the early 90s. He started his run with supporting roles before getting the role of Thor and Titan in American Gladiators. He also made several guest appearances in popular television series like Days of Our Lives.
Given the extraordinary build of O’Hearn, there has been a ton of speculation about the possibility of steroid or Synthol use. In Jul. 2022, O’Hearn declined using TRT (testosterone replacement therapy) and credited his physique to be consistent every day.
O’Hearn teamed up with Joseph Baena, son of bodybuilding legend Arnold Schwarzenegger, for a brutal arms workout in Aug. 2022. He opened up about his intense mindset about training as they performed the bicep and triceps routine.
The 54-year-old left the fans stunned with an impressive sneak peek of his role in the bodybuilding film Magazine Dreams last August. He showed off his shredded physique while playing the role of Brad Vanderhorn.
O’Hearn partnered with Baena for an ‘old-school’ upper body training session a few months ago. He mentored Baena through the back workout focused on enhancing longevity. He caused a stir in the community with his claims suggesting testosterone levels didn’t decline with time. Former Mr. Olympia Samir Bannout chimed in voicing his disagreement with O’Hearn beliefs last October.
Following the rise in steroid accusations lodged against him, O’Hearn issued a fiery message pushing back on the allegations in Sep. 2022.
Mike O’Hearn admits fish hooking haters on Synthol use
In a recent YouTube video, Mike O’Hearn talked about tricking haters with a fish hook about his fictitious use of Synthol. He explained the promo stunt was based on his character in an upcoming project.
“Let’s talk about the rumors with Synthol,” said O’Hearn. “That was an easy troll by me because I knew majority would jump on it, not read anything, bypass that and just go this is awesome, gotcha! That’s the reason I kinda did it to just make you a little awake. I think it is stemmed from hate.
“It doesn’t matter what I say, it matters what I do. The evidence is there of what I do and have been doing for a lifetime.”
“I hope you guys understand it really doesn’t matter what you say. You can say pretty much anything but your actions are going to prove who you are as an individual.”
“For everybody that got fish hooked from the post about Synthol, that’s my character I’m playing on Monday. He’s a character I play on 911 that gets busted for synthol, drugs, and stuff. It was too easy not to fish hook you guys.”
