Dana Linn Bailey is a women’s physique IFBB pro. She has gained tremendous popularity thanks to her wild personality and strong online presence. There are hundreds of pictures on the Internet that reveal her infantile persona. Regardless of that many women admire her work ethic and physique. Bailey is considered a serious motivation by many of her followers.
There are women who believe they can look like Bailey naturally – without the use of anabolic steroids. Unfortunately for them, this is not true. Having such muscular and lean physique as a woman is very hard, because it was never meant to be.
The male hormone testosterone is what determines muscular size and strength. Females produce many times less testosterone compared to the male representatives of the human species. Consequently, it’s impossible for a women to be as muscular and as lean as Dana Linn Bailey without anabolic steroids.
Anabolic steroids are drugs that increase protein within cells, especially in skeletal muscles. Steroids date back to 1930s and are widely used in medicine. The primary medical uses of these compounds are to treat delayed puberty, some types of impotence, and wasting of the body caused by HIV infection or other diseases.
The complete term for steroids is anabolic-androgenic steroids (AAS) because they promote the growth of skeletal muscle (anabolic effects) and the development of male sexual characteristics (androgenic effects) in both males and females.
Virtually all famous bodybuilders have used steroids. However, the side effects are more obvious among female athletes because steroids have virilizing* properties. Despite the side effects most female bodybuilders and physique competitors rely on steroids. Otherwise it’s impossible to maintain low levels of body fat and higher levels of muscular development. The condition of competitors like Dana Linn Bailey is naturally impossible. Women can never get that lean and big without some synthetic help.

Dry, muscular and extremely lean physique.

Overall “Photoshop look”
// You don’t have to be 250lbs to be on steroids. There are small doses and large doses. There are users who eat big and there are users who eat less. However, while different in size both share one common trait – out of this world look. When you see someone that looks like a cartoon character, such as Dana Linn Bailey, it’s a dead giveaway what’s going on.
Don’t hate the player, hate the game? Over the last decades the bodybuilding standards have changed a lot. Male competitors look like pregnant women and females look like men. Of course, all of this is caused by the abuse of steroids and GH (growth hormone). But who is to blame? The perverted “standards” or the competitors who keep following the system in exchange for their health?
*virilizing – virilization refers to the biological development of sex differences, changes that make a male body different from a female body.
