Is Nick Wright a Natural Bodybuilder Or a Steroid User?

Nick Wright is one of the most popular natural bodybuilders on YouTube. He has tons of followers and subscribers thanks to his educational and entertaining videos. Many people feel inspired by Nick Wright and want to look like him. Question is, can you do it naturally? Is Nick Wright a natural bodybuilder or not? Let’s see.

How big is Nick Wright?

Nick Wright’s profile on bodybuilding.com says that he has the following stats:

Height: 5’7″-170 cm
Weight: 190lbs – 86 kg @12%BF.


However, I also found information stating that Nick Wright is 5’8″.

To work with those numbers, we need an estimation of Nick Wright’s weight in contest condition.

According to his stats, Nick Wright’s weight composition is as follows:

Total weight: 190lbs

Lean/active weight: 190 lbs x 0.12 (his body fat) = 22.8 lbs of fat. Therefore, Nick Wright’s lean mass is 190 lbs-22.8 lbs = 167.2lbs/76kg.

Fat: 22.8 lbs

At 5% BF, the estimated weight of Nick Wright will be:

Contest weight = 167.2 {current lean weight} / (1-0.05%) {5% BF} = 167.2 / 0.95  = 176lbs/80kg

Note: For more information regarding the above formula consult this page.

Conclusion: Nick Wright’s estimated contest weight is 176lbs. This puts him 20lbs over the numbers in nattyornot.com’s guide for natural bodybuilders.

In the video below, Bostin Loyd and Nick Wright talk about hypothetical drug cycles. For those of you who don’t know, Bostin Loyd is one of the very few bodybuilders talking about drugs. He has admitted to using tons of anabolic steroids, growth hormone, and insulin.

Do you really think that the difference between a full-blown natural and someone using large quantities of drugs could be that small?
