At 54 Mike O’Hearn looks as young as a 30-year-old. The bodybuilding legend and social media sensation is always catching people’s eyes with his training method, and youthful structure.

This is when O’Hearn had a statement ready for Yudin. He said, “When you guys did the ‘self-proclaimed natty’ we thought that was funny.” He did not leave it at that and explain why he thought it was funny. He said, “Cause when you guys do your like one through thirty people, it said self-proclaimed natty. Because I competed in natural shows and to drug tests, and was natural. So it wasn’t me saying it it was doing drug tests in the sense. It’s not me going around saying this.” So, according to the Titan, there were blood tests that were done on the shows, and could not be hidden from the audience, and those tests showed him to be a natural. From here, he also went to how the audience thinks that Hollywood celebrities are on steroids. O’Hearn was against this thought and said that people would do anything to get news. He had to clarify his natural status before as well.
