Omar Isuf has one of the top YouTube fitness channels with over 200 000 subscribers and counting. He is pretty strong and has a decent physique which makes people interested. They want to know the source of muscle and power and he seems to heavy it.
However, is Omar Isuf natural or another steroid junky?
How big is Omar Isuf?
According to the information we were able to collect from Omar Isluf’s Facebook page and YouTube videos he is about 5’9″ -175 cm @ 182 lbs – 82 kg; That’s actually pretty big given the fact that Frank Zane was 5’9″ @ 185 lbs and won the biggest bodybuilding competition Mr. Olympia three times.
However, there’s a catch here – Omar Isluf’s body fat is not 5 % and he is not water depleted. We were unable to find accurate information showing what’s Omar Isuf’s body fat but from the pictures it looks to be about 10-12%.
That means that a 5% BF he will weight approximately 158 lbs – 167 lbs. This particular number is really hard to determine because it’s always less than what the math says. That’s why we provide a range in order to be on the safe side.
Conclusion: Omar Isuf’s weight at 5% body fat and after water depletion seems to correspond to our guide for natural bodybuilders which puts a 5’9″ male at 163 lbs. However, keep in mind that this number is for people with above average genetics and not everybody can achieve it.
Omar Isuf’s transformation was slow
Omar Isuf’s transformation took over 3 years which makes it believable since true natural bodybuilders grow slowly unlike steroid users who blow up fast in a matter of a few months.
For the most part (but not all part) Omar Isuf does not have the Photoshop look
Omar Isuf doesn’t possess the magical steroid look characteristic for the majority of the fake natural bodybuilders we’ve presented on this site. In many photos he appears flat, watery and does not have that much ‘relief’, sharpness and dryness seen in the physique of a true steroid junky. That’s a massive bonus in our book since Omar Isuf shares a trait of a true natural bodybuilder.
There are also photos that actually point in the other direction. The transformation below seems a little extreme to accept as a natural progression. The overall look in the after photo screams Photoshop and large than life appearance that can be caused only by steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs (PED).
Conclusion: If you have seriously good genetics for bodybuilding, you can achieve a physique similar (not exactly the same) to Omar Isuf’s naturally without using anabolic steroids. However, we will never go as far as saying that Omar Isuf is 100% lifetime natural, because…
In some photos his physique looks achievable naturally while in others it’s obvious that something’s going on. Photos like the one above seem a little hard to accept as ‘natural’. We won’t be surprised one bit, if Omar Isuf did use anabolic steroids for some period of time.
