Not long ago, a reader asked me to make a classic natty or not review of a bodybuilder/lifter/philosopher/swag boy under the name of Greg O’Gallagher a.k.a. Kinobody.
I knew who that man was because I’ve been in this online muscle game for a long time. However, I didn’t know the details. Therefore, I had to investigate a bit.
The first thing that hit me was the sea of narcissism this guy swims in.
I’ve reviewed many lifters on nattyornot.com, but this guy is by far the most self-obsessed muscle hero I have seen. Only Phil Heath can rival him.
Me. Me. Me. Me.
Look at me.
Me. Me. Me. Me.
Look at my stupid haircut.
Me. Me. Me.
Look at my muscles.
Me. Me. Me.
Let me tell you how to be an awesome Greek God like Me. Me. Me. Me…
Did I say ME?
Honestly, this dude is probably one of those people who use a portrait photo of themselves as a wallpaper on their desktop computer, laptop, tablet, phablet and iFone.
Anyway, in reality this has nothing to do with his natural or unnatural status, and I am not against people loving themselves.
I guess I should try it sometimes myself, but I am afraid the hater in me will be bored a little too much.
Shut up! Review, please!
How big is Greg O’Gallagher?
Note: Readers have informed me that the pretty boy weighs only 165 lbs now. I do not see how this is relevant. People can lose weight. Doesn’t change the fact that he was 185 lbs as stated in his interview for muscleforlife.com.
After all, Ronnie Coleman was 290 lbs in his prime and is now around 200 lbs.
This review only makes sense if I use the heaviest bodyweight.
According to different online sources Kinobody has the following body stats:
Height: 5’10” – 177.8 cm;
Weight: 180 – 185 lbs – 81-83 kg;
Body fat: Unknown – I guess between 7-10%;
In my guide for natural bodybuilders, you can see that a lifter who is 5’10” (177.8 cm) tall can potentially weigh around 170 lbs (77kg) at 5%-7% bodyfat.
Thus, it is safe to say that Mr. Gallagher is pushing the limits.
Never forget that the stats in the guide are for naturals with elite genetics.
To put things in perspective, think of the kids who can play incredibly complicated stuff on the piano before being able to walk properly. This is the type of muscle talent it takes to get to those stats naturally.
It’s not like everyone can achieve this level of muscle success simply by lifting and eating ”right”. These days it takes more to start collecting likes on Facebook from people taken by the global muscle lust. A lot more.
Conclusion: If Greg O’Gallagher was to lose a few body fat points and get ready for a bodybuilding show, he will be at a bodyweight equal or above the numbers presented in the guide. That’s only possible if you inject or have ”God given genetics” for muscle construction.
Does Greg O’Gallagher have the Photoshop look so common for fitness models injecting tren and friends in their glutes?
Not really. He doesn’t have the glamorous 3D appearance presented by other known pinners. He does look full but is also very watery. In other words, he is not a dry muscle specimen, which makes him look ”fatter” and not so otherworldly. Of course, this does not mean that the guy is natural.
Maybe he is simply not using the type of steroids modern fitness models rely on.
Testosterone alone is not going to give you the Zyzz look common for modern fitness models. It gives you size, but the shredded 3D muscle with a pop to it usually comes from other muscle elixirs.
Q: But he shows what he eats all the time! He must be natty.
A: That doesn’t mean anything. Phil Heath shows his meals on Instagram too. Does this make him a natural bodybuilder? Please, cut the naive 3rd grade stalker mentality. What do you expect from those guys? To post a picture of themselves sliding a needle in a butt cheek. Get real. Social media are not for that. They are meant to showcase your great life. To know the truth, you need to be behind the scenes.
Q: Do you have any definitive evidence that this guy is not natty?
A: Not really. He is not that big, and thus gets the ”it is possible to build a similar physique naturally if you have G-R-E-A-T genetics” score.
Q: Do you think this dude can be a shadow pinner?
A: Anyone can be a shadow pinner. You don’t even have to be big. Don’t be surprised even if the prime minister is a shadow pinner too. There are much crazier things happening in this world than that.
Q: Will I get as big as Greg O’Gallagher if I follow his training advice?
A: Honestly, bro, I don’t know what his training advice is, but the answer is still a firm: ”No way, son!”
Here’s the deal. There isn’t a lifting routine that somehow turns your body into a muscle-building machine. If you have favorable genetics and torture yourself adequately, any routine that’s remotely difficult and demands progression will get you to your potential. Thus, fuck ”special” routines.
Q: What about his spiritual advice?
A: If you are talking about the ”power of now”, ”live in the now”, ”there is only now” mentality, I would say fuck this nonsense.
Let me explain how the system works. Humans were never built to live ONLY in the now. That’s an animal level of existence. Animals live in the now constantly. I remember when ”my” cat used to bite the hell out of me only to love me a minute later. Humans cannot do that. We are different. It’s unnatural not to think of the past or the future. You can try if you want, but it will be an artificial, forced existence.
We are programmed to live in the now only when it’s necessary – during extreme situations such as running away from a lion. This is natural self-preservation. All attempts to replicate this mental state in everyday situations like going to the bathroom are just lame.
I am getting seriously tired of this mass media proclaimed spirituality. It’s more dangerous than you think. Many monkeys buy it and think life is all about being positive and rejecting everything negative. No, it’s not. This is simply an attempt of the system to take your guard down and to make you one of those suckers who never hate or riot – a happy slave as they call them.
Q: Ok. Shut up! Do you think this guy is natty?
A: Probability of being a full natty brah – 2.5 out of 5.
Hope this helps. Thank you for visiting my site.
