    The last photo should be a shot of him shooting up with steroids.

  • Captain Obvious

    I did not know this was a thing but I like it. I usually see roided up guys who roll big ugly shorts up instead of doing what this guy is doing. They should copy him and try not to look like overcooked sausages.

    @lauraspencer: If he’s using steroids then he’s mastered the dosage because he doesn’t have any gross veins showing, his skin doesn’t look weird, his body is pretty proportionate, and his penis hasn’t shrunken. All the roid guys I’ve ever seen have all of those problems.

  • moldisdelicious

    Actually have the full video of thus before youtube took it down.

  • Matt Achine

    @moldisdelicious: Who’s the guy in the gifs?

  • Captain Obvious

    @lauraspencer: Ha nevermind, upon closer research in other pictures(not gifs) he literally has all of those things. You were right. ;)

  • Captain Obvious

    @Matt Achine: Ryan Nelson… but be warned he looks different when not in gif form.

  • James Jurome

    Hahaha. Elaine Kim

  • lauraspencer

    @Captain Obvious:

    Happy new year! Thanks for letting me be right one last time in 2015 :)

  • Glücklich

    Silly me. I thought underwear was supposed to go *under* something.

  • Alan down in Florida

    Looks to me like he’s bulking up body parts as compensation for the body parts he hasn’t been blessed with size.

  • paul dorian lord fredine

    @Alan down in Florida: you do realize they keep themselves well supported to help avoid hernias and ruptures, right? plus, there are such things as ‘growers, not showers’.

  • John Begin

    Hilarious! I was captivated.

  • Rik Seddon

    Who is he?

  • Captain Obvious

    @paul dorian lord fredine: As a grower I can confirm we can get pretty tiny when it’s bored or we have to poop. But he clearly is a roid user so it’s probably tiny in general now even if it wasn’t at some point. Steroids do shrink your penis and it doesn’t grow back. He’s probably working with an actual baby penis in those huggies. Not cute.

  • Captain Obvious

    That said she does have ass for days. As a butt lover I don’t care about her weenis.

  • Sweetie Pie

    I can smell the droids from here…..no thanks

  • Masc Pride

    He has a great bottom, but his squat form looks awful and dangerous (when there’s actual weight on the bar). The bar should be aligned with his hips, not his knees. Just looking at that GIF hurts my neck and knees.

  • Masc Pride

    For all you guys accusing him of steroid use, he could be all of 170 pounds. He’s a very low body fat percentage (which doesn’t take steroids at all), so the tone makes him look more muscular. He doesn’t look super bulky at all.

  • Lvng1Tor

    Oh, for Fks’sake..lighten up people. If it’s not for you then it’s not for you. Why always so negative?

  • Realitycheck

    @Masc Pride: Steroids do not work in one day, it takes years to get bigger and bigger and more muscular, to me he does look like he is taking Roids.
    That said he is definately a cute beef cake LOL

  • JerseyMike

    This dude isn’t on steroids.. There is no gynocomastia or excessive back ache. I don’t understand why people always want to scream steroids when a guy is really buffed up. It called dedication more than anything. @Masc Pride: LMAO.. those squats are horrible!!

  • Bauhaus

    Yes, indeedy! Press away all day…

  • Jay T Barry

    I should be more mindful of the person posting things. ???

  • Jon DeLeon

    Totally sticky to them…. I mean sticking!

  • John P Farinhas

    i will join the gym just to watch him work out

  • Realitycheck

    @JerseyMike: LOL Most people do not get Gyno from steroids, you are as misinformed as the come, and please spare me the “my ant used them and she got this and that”.

    No one looks like that with out steroids, and AGAIN, it depends on how long he has been taking them, and how many and how much!!! Everything is relative.

    Big steroids signs, the “”veins on his shoulder and arms””” especially because he is not super skinny nor is he super lean/cut, and the wings of his back way to developed and so are his upper shoulder and his huge legs.

    100% no mistake on steroids.

  • JerseyMike

    @Realitycheck: You know as much about this dude as I do so fucking spare me. Your opinion means about as much as mine. worthless!!!

  • Angel Diaz

    Bray Addison

  • n900mixalot

    I have bulgey shoulder and arm veins starting to show through since I’ve been working out consistently for some years, and I definitely do not use steroids. I’m not getting a roid vibe from this guy. But I don’t know him…

  • Jesse Cerna

    David Fuller your type of guys

  • Realitycheck

    @JerseyMike: Get over yourself, not every one speaks out of their butt, some people are actually qualify and have personal experience to share.

    @n900mixalot: I don’t think the guy is a long time user and that is key, the guy looks like some one that has been on steroids for a short time.
    Don’t take me wrong, steroids are not the magical bullet, contrary to popular believe one has to work out and work out hard to get results from steroids,
    steroids real benefits are quick recovery after a work out and increased energy levels.

  • JerseyMike

    @Realitycheck: HAPPY NEW YEAR B!TCH!!

  • Ian Roberts

    David Hough Ryan J. Ottey

  • Captain Obvious

    @JerseyMike: Um check again, it’s much more obvious in other pictures that aren’t moving, and distracting you with close ups of his butt.

    Those disgusting tell-tale varicose veins are all over his arms, neck, head, shoulders, and legs. He clearly puts makeup over them because they seem to disappear completely at times and in other pics they are blatant. There’s really nothing cute about roid veins.

  • Mike Burns

    Dat ass is mesmerizing.

  • rickyboi7

    that’s about as attractive as an 84 yr old man with one descending testicle. bring back hair!

  • Stephen Mole

    Be good if we could have actual NEWS this year (for a change).

  • Stache

    @Stephen Mole: Sure. Tell that to People Magazine while you’re at it. It is what is.

  • Masc Pride

    @Captain Obvious: Varicose veins and vascularity are two different things. Even a 150 pound twink will have very prominent veins if he’s lean enough (12 percent and below) and lifts. Prominent veins have never ever been an indicator of anabolic steroid use. “Backne”, testicle shrinkage, male pattern, gynecomastia and some other things are actual physical signs of long-term steroid use (emphasis on long-term), but guys that use steroids in cycles most likely won’t even experience any of these.

  • Masc Pride

    @Realitycheck: A lot of you are taking lean and muscular as an automatic sign of steroid use. This guy just looks like he’s in great shape. His physique doesn’t take steroids to achieve. Some creatine, whey, proper diet and CONSISTENT hard work in the gym will eventually give any guy a pretty similar result.

  • moldisdelicious

    @Masc Pride:

    basically, he’s NOT natural. creatine and whey protein are both unnatural shit like steroids.

    and i think you and a lot of these other guys have a twisted perspective on what the average male body is supposed to look like. the average male body does not look like that nor is the ideal desire type that is constantly pushed by the media, fitness industry publications and etc distorting the minds of young males where they think that this is what a “fit” body looks like. in order to have a body like that, someone really has to have a certain kind of genetics or be drugged up on roids.

    this is just another reason to simply avoid sites like queerty which misleads people on certain things like fitness and exercise, not knowing what they’re talking about. fantasy is not reality. it’s such a shame that people often don’t know the difference until they are forced into a situation where they get that reality check.

    if you’re going to work out with the goal of being happy with yourself, trying to win the approval of other people, get dates and etc, then you’re doing it wrong. get your mind right because if your mind ain’t in the right place, working out can make you worse.

  • youarekiddingme

    @moldisdelicious: Just a second…”Whey” Protein is NOT “unnatural shit like steroids.”

    Milk is made up of two types of protein:
    1. Casein and
    2. Whey
    How is Whey (a protein that comes from Milk) “unnatural shit like steroids?”

    Now, granted creative or creatine monohydrate is not a naturally occurring compound (it is synthetically derived) like many things that are ingested in our diet. The actual ingredients/process for making creatine are as follows:

    “Process for producing creatine or creatine-monohydrate

    The present invention relates to a process for producing creatine or creatine-monohydrate, comprising the step of reacting N-methylglycine, sodium N-methylglycinate and/or potassium N-methylglycinate with S-methylisothiourea and/or S-methylisothiourea sulfate in water or in a mixture of water and an alcohol solvent under the temperature from 15.degree. C. to 140.degree. C. and a pH of 7-13. By using the process of the present invention creatine or creatine-monohydrate with a higher purity can be produced at a much lower cost.”

    *From Bodybuilding.com. (Tinyurl.com).

    You can clearly see from the items listed that NONE are chemically even close to any known anabolic steroid compounds.

    If your last paragraph first sentence was correct where you said, “If you’re going to work out with the goal of being happy with yourself…then you’re doing it wrong.” I ask you, what is wrong with working out to be happy with yourself? It does increase endorphine levels. It’s a helluva lot better than taking prescribed medications to be happy with yourself (i.e., depression). If you said that in error I get it, otherwise I think you’re incorrect in that statement as well.


    His name is Ryan Nelson. I am looking for the video from which the gifs were created. Anyone know a link that works?

  • Masc Pride

    @moldisdelicious: Since your preposterous claims about whey have already been properly slaughtered, I’ll just finish you off by informing you that creatine is a naturally-occurring amino acid. Look it up, dummy. And if you eat any red meat or salmon, you’re also getting some of this “unnatural shit like steroids”.

  • Masc Pride

    @moldisdelicious: And I totally agree that Queerty often misleads people with false and/or exaggerated information, but you just did it too, so you’re not exactly in a position to judge there.
