1. They are surprisingly muscular for their frame.
What if I tell you that you have a built-in detector for fake natties? When you see a man with a musculature that appears out of the ordinary, your brain reports an abnormality right away.
Most men do not have the capacity to naturally build a physique that has the modern “wow” effect on people. You can have a body part or two that fill out your clothes, but being “swole” all over is rare unless you have wide shoulders and thick bones.
Individuals who look too big for their frame (e.g., 17-inch arms on 6-inch wrists) have a very low chance of being natural.
2. They are always in the company of known steroid users.
“A man is known by the company he keeps.”
Crooked cops hang out with crooked cops. Millionaires hang out with millionaires. Beggars enjoy the company of other beggars. Politicians’ phones are full of other politicians’ numbers.
Why would needle samurai be any different? They aren’t. The lords of the syringe inject each other and hit the club. Even in the gym, there is a division between naturals and steroid users. The pinners are loud and obnoxious and often in the company of other users whereas the natural fighters are quieter and often train solo.
If a man is surrounded by steroids users and looks muscular himself, the probability that he is a pristine natty brah is dangerously low.
The small dudes in a steroid group often play the natty card because they are not big enough to activate the radar. Yet they aren’t lifetime naturals. The unaware buy it.
3. They always remind you how natural they are.
The more one talks about his natural status, the smaller the likelihood that he is “steron-free”.
Why do they do it? To create a sensation.
When a big and shredded dude calls himself natural, he attracts the misinformed crowd which is always yearning for insane natural gains. Most people are not attracted to steroids for many reasons – moral, dependence, fear…etc. Consequently, we desire to acquire as much as possible without introducing extra chemicals to the organism. As a result, the men with incredible physiques who calls themselves Natural are a captivating sight.
Ironically, the mofos who always remind you of their natty status are like lovers who always say how much they love you – they don’t. Because you don’t say “I love you.” with words. You do so with actions. Same with being natural. If your body and performance do not say that you are natural, you are not. Repeating that you are until the end of times changes nothing.
4. They sell ultra-effective programs specifically for naturals.
The overlords want you to think that your lack of gains is powered by an inadequate strategy. In reality, there isn’t a perfect routine. If effort and dedication are put into a program, it has no choice but to work to some extent.
There isn’t an exercise and/or a specific rep range that unlock(s) a growth safe full of natty gains that make the steroid users look stupid.
All programs targeting naturals do so for marketing purposes based on good cop talk – “All other routines are for steroid users but ours are designed specifically for naturals.” Sure, fellas.
The most comical stage begins when the advertised method fails to catalyze the promised results. At that moment, the creators of the routine start blaming YOU for the situation. They are never the guilty party. It’s always you – the loser doing it wrong. ,
Nonsense. Don’t let them fill your head with weird exercises and mysterious angles. I can assure that “quick push-up tips” will not give you the chest of a roid monkey. You can twist your wrists and visualize muscle augmentation as much as you want – nothing will change. You will stay the same while they capitalize on your irrational reasoning based on feelings and lies of the mind.
5. They have a tremendous Instagram following.
Can a natural amass a ridiculous number of Instagram followers? It can happen, but it’s more than a rarity in the world of bodybuilding. More importantly, a desirable physique will not be the only engine. The fame would be the result of concrete action. E.g., competing in calisthenics/street fitness.
Instagram is about imagery larger than life. Nobody wants to look at ordinary stuff. It’s all about the eye candy. Big tits and juicy butts cut it. Small do not. For better or worse, natties do not produce the dopamine that shredded, aesthetic guys blasting trenbolone do.
The natural warriors are not sponsored and do not have a team of photographers and video editors boosting the magic factor. Hence the TV effect is missing. Everything is mundane and uninteresting.
Don’t forget that the masses always fall for the mainstream tricks. They follow the pinners and buy the lie that you too can get to the top of the mountain if you eat and train p-r-o-p-e-r-l-y.
Sadly, the vast majority of men in the lifting community who have an army of followers are as natural as sharks in a bottle.
“Naturalism” isn’t sensational enough. Reality does not sell anything other than pain. Nobody wants it.
6. They love to get “scientific”.
Fake natties and their conscious and unconscious megaphones love to fill your head with studies, projections and theory-crafting. They will talk about “nuclei” and the proper time to eat broccoli, but the visual speaks louder than words.
It is a fact of life that naturals do not grow much. That’s it. No amount of studies will change this simple truth.
Boy, you aren’t small because you are drinking water at the wrong time. And no, desiccated liver tablets will not turn you into one of Gironda’s pupils. Injections are behind the magic trick. Everything else is political talk for the camera.
Even the bodybuilders know it. You think they are stupid? You think the average angry guy blasting 5×5 upon finding out that his girlfriend is another Tinder whore is smarter than a pro bodybuilder?
The big men in thongs were once in the shoes of the little dudes hoping to get massive by drinking raw milk and doing knee bends /better known as squats/. The blueprint failed; the apprentices went to the dark side.
You think the pros don’t know that their protein dust is less useful than eggs for getting big?
You think they lose sleep over creatine scoops?
You think they care about anabolic vitamins? You think they watch videos entitled – “Modify you bench press with these QUICK & EASY tips and Get a HUGE CHEST FASSSST?
You think they read 20-page articles glorifying the squat and deadlift? Of course, not.
They may not be super intelligent or educated, but they are pretty enlightened on the subject. They know what gets them big. They may not admit it but deep down every fiber of their being realizes it.
Only desperate naturals look for scientific saviors to show them the ultimate body alignment for muscle activation.
7. They have bitch tits.
Roids turn the homeostasis of the body upside down. The reactors start producing extra estrogen which gives you gynecomastia better know as bitch tits. Many bodybuilders and gym rats have this condition. They will tell you that you can get gyno without injecting steroids, and that would actually be true. You can acquire bitch tits even as a natty. However, when a muscular dude has them, the culprit is not a cheeseburger. It’s the drugs.
8. They downplay the role of steroids.
Roid users often paint steroids as less effective than advertised. What is the incentive to do so?
By presenting roids as inferior, the emphasis on other variables (training, nutrition, personal sacrifice…etc.) increases. That way the fake natties earn more respect in the eyes of the crowd. Despite this psychological manipulation they still owe their superior status to anabolics rather than some extraterrestrial work ethic.
Ironically, steroids have the power to turn women into men. If that isn’t effective, nothing is.
9. They lift bending barbells.
Some numbers are unachievable naturally unless you get extremely fat. Yet some fake natties say that 500lbs bench presses are a natural reality.
Beyond a certain point, every lift becomes unreachable without injections. And by the way, the looks of the lifter do not negate this axiom. There are many roided powerlifters who can pass for naturals due to their high body fat and royal bloat.
