Is Chris Lavado Natural?

Chris Lavado is a super popular and proud member of the aesthetic crew who promotes the aesthetic lifestyle. He, like the other members of the gang, is supposed to be a natural bodybuilder who relies solely on sound nutrition and training to build and maintain his powerful and muscular physique. However, we don’t buy that for one second and  here’s why:

1.Chris Lavado is too lean, too dry and too full.

Natural bodybuilders have very hard time building muscle. It’s a very slow process and for many it’s even a mystery that never actually happens.

What’s even harder is maintaining that hard earned muscle during the leaning out phase when the bodybuilder reduces his body fat in order to increase muscle detail and definition.

When the body is put into low calorie diet, preserving muscle mass becomes an uphill battle. That’s why when you see such unreal, Photoshop like development, you should start asking question.

In the picture above Chris lavado is next to Jeff Seid and Matt Ogus – two bodybuilders/ fitness competitors who are known for their close to undeniable steroid usage. Note that he looks bigger than both of them.

So much quality mass at such a low body fat is a sure strike against the natural status of Chris Lavado.

2.Chris Lavado is part of the aesthetic gang.

Chris Lavado is as big and even bigger than some of the members of the aesthetic gang. He is also sponsored by different companies and makes money with his body. In other words there will be zero profit for him, if he was to admit steroid usage. Steroids scare the fans away.

People want to be lied to. They want to believe in fantasies and fairy tales – exactly like a spoiled child that doesn’t want to grow up. Nothing in this world is what it seems to be.

3.Chris Lavado is ‘too heavy’.

According to online sources the current bodyweight of Chris Lavado fluctuates between 175lbs and 195lbs at 5’9″. This seems like a broad range but let’s say it’s correct. The body fat of Lavado is about 5-7% at most. In comparaison, the popular bodybuilder and three times Mr. Olympia Frank Zane was also 5’9″ and competed at 185lbs. This means that Chris Lavado shares the muscular size of Zane who was a well known steroid user like every professional bodybuilder.

    Honestly, he competed in OCB at like 164. He isn’t in competition weight at 175-185 thats just bulking and for youtube videos. OCB and NPC differ drastically in regards to testing. So if you watched him on stage he looks completely natural.
    So he isn’t the same as Frank Zane. I think you just need to relax with all this stuff lol. The guy’s lifts aren’t even crazy either, he squats 315 for working sets and benches mid 200s. How is this crazy.There are juniors in the USAPL benching over 400 pounds nationally (in a national TESTED powerlifting competition)

    This website is OD. Go track your macros big boy. Or at least learn something from the lifting community.
