Dave Goodin – Natty or Not?

The professional bodybuilder Dave Goodin has a physique that makes 20-years-old boys jealous. He is lean, muscular and even “dry”. Goodin claims that he is a natural bodybuilder but if you look at the facts similar statement seems to be highly questionable. The factors to consider when deciding whether Dave Goodin is natural are:


1.Dave Goodin is old.

Dave Goodin is currently 55 and still has an amazing physique. However, since testosterone levels decrease with age, it makes absolutely no sense to have similar physique at 55. There are natural 25-years-old men who train super hard and never get even close to that level of development. Dave Goodin is either a mutant or he is using synthetic hormones.

2.Dave Gooding has the Photoshop look.

Dave Goodin has a physique that looks composed in Photoshop. He is highly muscular, full and dry.

3.Dave Goodin is bigger than former Mr.Olympia winners.

Dave Goodin is 5’7” (170cm) and weights 180 lbs (82 kg). His body fat is 4%. In comparison, Frank Zane, who is a three times Mr.Olympia, competed at: 5’9” (175cm) and 185lb (84kg).

That means that Dave Goodin has more muscle mass at 55 than a former Mr.Olympia.

Note: Bodybuilders from the Golden Era such as Frank Zane, Mike Mentzer, Arnold Schwarzenegger…used a lot of anabolic steroids to develop their physiques. At that time it was easy to get prescription for steroids. Saying that you want to get bigger for football was good enough to get it.

4.Dave Goodin is a professional bodybuilder

As a professional bodybuilder living in the U.S. Dave Goodin fears serious consequences if he was to admit steroid usage. It’s illegal to use anabolic steroids for recreational purposes in North America. On top of that he can’t advertise bodybuilding supplements, if he was to openly admit his steroid addiction. The reason why IFBB pros deny steroid usage has been explained in greater details in this post: Why Do IFFB Pro Bodybuilders Deny Steroid Usage

Special Note: On August 12, 2014 we were contacted by Dave Goodin. He sent us a letter denying the possibility of him not being a natural bodybuilder. We are posting the letter unedited as requested by Mr. Dave Goodin. 


To who ever writes this garbage,

Have you ever met me? Have you ever seen me in person? Have you seen what I look like standing next to pros who are using steroids? Put my best picture next to Frank Zane and there’s no comparison. Plus you obviously haven’t done your research on me. My heaviest ever competition wt was 178, which was last yr. I was heavier because I didn’t get as lean as my usual bodybuilding shape of 2.3-2.6%.
If you had done any reading at all you would know that it too me 20 years to gain 30 lbs of muscle. That’s an avg of 1.5lbs per year. You don’t need drugs for that. For the last 12 yrs I was able to maintain my weight. I don’t miss workouts and I eat pretty darn clean all the time. That’s the big secret!
If you have any credibility or morals at all you will post this rebuttal. There are a lot of natural for life competitors who are a heck of a lot bigger than me!
And, when you start judging natty or not by photos, you need to decide if you think I was photo shopped and not that good, or if I’m really that good and thus “must have used steroids”.
I also noticed that you don’t have the decency to put you name on the stuff you write. My guess is that you are bodybuilder wanna-be. Therefore every great natural bodybuilder is a threat to your Man Card.

    Hey Dave, whom are you trying to kid? Not everyone on this planet fails to see the bs image you are trying to project. You are angry because you have been exposed by people way smarter than you are…lol

    Oh my God, another fucking lier talking about morals? What’s the problem with all these fucking roid addicts? At 55 and that body is natural, haha, fuck you decrepit bitch

    I have had the opportunity to have competed on the same stage with Dave. He has always displayed a quality physique and very professional. It’s unfortunate that we as natural bodybuilders are just hatted on because of our great genetics. Everyone cannot develop nor build the type of physique Dave has. Just like everyone is not capable of being a medical doctor.
