How Big Can You Get Naturally Without Steroids?

One of the eternal bodybuilding questions is:

How big can you get naturally?

Pro bodybuilders and their pimps say that the sky is the limit if you have the right genetics and work like a mad monkey. Since pro bodybuilders and fitness brahs have impressive physiques, the gullible idiots listen to the fairy tales coming through their mouths infested with lies and deception. A stupid move.

What determines muscle growth?

Muscle hypertrophy (increase in the volume of muscle tissues) is largely dependent on the male hormone testosterone.


People who have naturally high testosterone levels are bigger and more muscular than eunuchs, aren’t they? That’s a fact of life.

On average men produce between 30mg and 70mg of testosterone per week and have 20 times higher testosterone levels than females.

Obviously, the muscular development and physical strength of men is superior because of that.

There is not a single exercise program nor a nutritional plan that could change it.

And even though we live in the era of the sensitive brah, men are still stronger than females.

The same principle holds true when comparing natural bodybuilders and bodybuilders on steroids – the latter are always be bigger and stronger due to their higher testosterone levels.

We live in times when pretty much all professional athletes are using some kind of performance-enhancing drugs (PED).

However, the fact that an athlete is injecting anabolic steroids in his system does not mean that his or hers physique cannot be achieved without the drugs.

For example, the popular cyclist Lance Armstrong confessed to using banned substances during his competitive career. According to mainstream media, Armstrong took growth hormone, cortisone, EPO and testosterone. As you can see, this is a long list, and yet there are many natural bodybuilders who are much bigger and stronger than Lance Armstrong.

As far as muscular development is concerned, the physique of Lance Armstrong is achievable naturally. What you will have harder time reaching is his level of endurance.

Besides cycling rock climbing is another sport where more muscle does not equal better performance.

Rock climbers have to be very lean because every gram of non-functional mass is stopping them from moving upwards.

Climbers are not abusing muscle building steroids. They just don’t need to.

The upper bodies of the those athletes, especially the back, forearms and biceps, are crucial to their sport. That’s why if you want to know how big your arm flexors (biceps) and lattissimus dorsi (broadest muscle of the back) can get naturally just look at rock climbers.

Climbers, however, are not very known for their leg development because their sport doesn’t require tremendous leg strength. Also, extra mass in the lower bodymakes climbing harder.

Bone structure is another very important factor.

Why?

It’s simple, Columbo: natural bodybuilders with larger bones look bigger.

For example, an athlete with 6′ inches wrists will have smaller arms than a person with 8′ inches wrists because of bone circumference alone.

Another important element you have to consider when doing research on how big you can get naturally are body fat levels.

Being fat and big is much easier than being muscular and ripped.

People always underestimate their body fat levels.

Many permabulkers/fatso swines who are 35% body fat classify themselves as 17% or even 15% because they can see their first two abs under the moonlight.

Later, when they cut they are surprised that they need to lose three times more weight than originally expected.

Below is a guide that shows what most people with good genetics can expect to achieve naturally if they put in the work and become total slaves to bodybuilding.

Height

Weight

6′ 2″ (188cm)

197lbs (89kg)

6′ 1″ (185cm)

190lbs (86kg)

6′ (183cm)

184lbs (83.5kg)

5′ 11″ (180cm)

177lbs (80kg)

5′ 10″ (178cm)

170lbs (77kg)

5′ 9″ (175cm)

163lbs (74kg)

5′ 8″ (173cm)

156lbs (71kg)

5′ 7″ (170cm)

149lbs (68kg)

5′ 6″ (168cm)

142lbs (65kg)

5′ 5″ (165cm)

135lbs (62kg)

Note: This chart is based on the following principle: you start at 5′ 5″ (165cm) and 135lbs (62kg) and for every inch (2.5cm) you either add or take away 7 lbs (3kg). Keep in mind that the numbers are just a guideline and are for people who are in contest shape and have favorable bodybuilding genetics.

Factors to consider:

Time and money – most people have to work for a living and only a minority of the fitness enthusiasts have the luxury to dedicate large amounts of financial resources and time to bodybuilding and other recreational purposes. The bodybuilding lifestyle is expensive – you have to pay for food, gym memberships, supplements…etc. Some individuals are just not in a position to sacrifice that much in the quest for a good physique.

Being alive is more important than having a good physique.

Stress levels – stress levels also play a huge role. The more stressed you are, the less muscle you can grow.

But can anyone truly live a stress free life?

Only dead people can!

In conclusion

The system has given us nothing but lies and politically correct marketing nonsense.

We are living in a fabricated reality.

The masters are holding us in a labyrinth by playing with our own heads and keeping us in a state of perpetual disconnection.

The next time you compare yourself to a popular natural bodybuilder keep all of this in mind.

And before engaging in self-destruction ask yourself:

Is all of this worth it?
