Rich Froning Natural or NOT?

Rich Froning Jr. is a professional CrossFit athlete who won the title Fittest Man On Earth three times in a row after placing first in the 2011, 2012 and 2013 CrossFit Games. Men want to be him, and women want to be with him. Rich, questionably handsome, fit…what’s not to like?

The physique of Rich Froning is considered by many “the perfect pussy slaying physique” and thousands of natural bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts are trying to find the secret to his perfection. How do you achieve a body like Rich Froning’s is a question that keeps 1/3 of the population awake. They want to know, but is there anybody willing to reveal the secret recipe containing the magical ingredients to becoming the ultimate sexual object?

Usually the general public is fed with the good old cliches: “hard work and sound nutrition”, “if you want it bad enough, you will have it.”, “follow your dreams”, “how bad do you want it” and other equally boring stuff. However, the really important question in this case goes like this: “Is Rich Froning using anabolic steroids?”, “Is Rich Froning Natural?”, “Can I look like him without taking steroids?”.


Luckily, finding out whether someone is a natural athlete/bodybuilder is not hard at all. It’s not like lifting weights is as complex as heart surgeries, isn’t it? The first step to finding out whether the individual in question is telling the truth, is to compare him to well known users of anabolic steroids who competed during the Golden Era of Bodybuilding or the 70s of the last century. According to Crossfit.com the body stats of Rich Froning are:

Rich-Froning-Steroids

Is Rich Natty or Not?

Height:

5’9″ (175cm)

Weight:

195 lbs (88.6kg)

Since Rich Froning is the Fittest man on Earth it’s safe to assume that his body fat levels are the lowest on earth too. But let’s get serious! Obviously, the body fat levels of Rich Froning are very low – about 5 to 8%. As a professional exerciser you cannot afford to ever get out of shape, and therefore in most pictures Rich Froning displays insane levels of leanness and muscle definition.

The former IFBB pro to which we will compare Rich Froning is none other than three times Mr. Olympia and the King Of Aesthetics Frank Zane.

Here are the stats of Frank Zane during his prime:

Off-season weight:

Competition weight:

185lbs (83kg)

Height:

Arms:

After a simple comparison between Rich Froning and Frank Zane it turns out that the Fittest Man On Earth is10 pounds HEAVIER and has the same height. Obviously, the bodyfat of both, Zane and Froning, is extremely low. When Frank Zane competed steroids were widely available, and it was very easy to get a prescription from the doctor or buy them from the local dealer at the gym. In the article: “Is Mike Mentzer On Steroids” this phenomenon is explained in greater details. If you think that Rich Froning’s level of muscular development has been achieved with just clean food, regular exercising and prayers – think again! And put more effort into it.

When there is money, there are lies. When there are lies, there are victims. The victim in this case is you – the device in front of the monitor. You’ve been fed with fake ideas and ego driven, superficial belief since the beginning of your life. The best way to enslave people is through the use of disinformation and deception. It happens in every area of life and just because CrossFit is the new best thing it does not mean it’s pure. It’s just another mainstream propaganda meant to spread its dogma among potential slaves. They want to trap you into believing that you should live according to their rules and desire what they tell you to. In this case – it’s Rich Froning’s body.

The world is made of sheepeople* which always take what they see for real. It’s hard not too with all that brainwashing going on since the early ages of our existence. In general, criticizing the man made authorities is something that is not tolerated by the human society. Those who do it are labeled as haters and are silenced through various ways. The site NattyOrNot.com was created with the intention of telling the truth about bodybuilding and the fitness world, breaking dogma and exposing fake natural bodybuilders. Enough with that politically correct nonsense. Enough lies.

Turn off your TV and think for a second. The award for first place at the CrossFit Games is USD 250,000. Do you really think that when so much money is one the table, competitors won’t consider using anabolic steroids? Truth be told, there’s no much choice when everybody is doing it – you can’t play by the rules and win, when the rules are that there are no rules.

In brief, Rich Froning is 10 pounds heavier than Frank Zane – three times Mr.Olympia and one of the bodybuilders with the most admired physique in the sport.

What’s really going at the so-called Crossfitt Games is this:

Athletes using anabolic steroids are competing for a large prize pool provided by a company (Reebok) which exploits people in third world countries. The first ones are considered the epitome of success, while the second ones are unknown people nobody cares about.

Those are the facts and while it’s your right to turn your back and ignore them, the truth will still be there – unchanged and absolute.

The bleating sheepeople all bought iPhones.

    Rich is not a bodybuilder and definitely does not have 5% fat id say 8-7 at lowest. Hes smoother wen unflexed or un pumped. And taking a guy with totally different structure and terrible genetics isn’t a realistic comparison. I dont disagree, hes to big for his height but at least use an athlete with similar % and genetics. Zane at his peak was barely 190.. Only 15 or 20 off natty peaks. but with roids every other user gains far more so its clear he had bad gain genes to start with.

    1. Jonathan Tricoli

      Bad gain genes isn’t going to mean anything when you’re on gear. Some of the women bodybuilders are huge and they are going to naturally have less testosterone then men, and if his genes were awful he would have taken more steroids than he did to compete at the level in Which he competed.

  2. Lance

    Of course he’s steroids, he’s won it 4x in a row. Let me be clear if everyone’s doping, it does not mean that PEDs are created equal. The more money you have means you more privy to buying state of the art PEDs that can be cycled and be virtually undetected. Now, the lily white joke of a sport that the Crossfit Games actually is in addition to their income sapping ‘boxes’ means other competitors for four years failed to lose to Rich Froning. The absolute joke of the so-called Crossfit Games, is that while they actually do drug testing, they only do it once, and the athletes know the date. Mark McGuire and Sammy Sosa would laugh hysterically at those ‘stringent’ rules. The truth of the matter, is experienced dopers get caught (and barely) with random drug testing. Now there have been dopers caught in the CF games, but I’m sure if you know the date of your test, you’re either too dumb to cycle off or too poor to afford modern PEDs. So in light of the evidence of known doping when money is on the table from Track and Field, MMA, Baseball and even other ‘professional’ crossfitters means that Rich Froning is an absolute doper. Doubt me, let me put it like this, Usain Bolt is beating known dopers who train the same routines and plans he does, the same genetic fast twitch muscle fibre and he’s beating a field full of dopers being au natural… not a chance. The same applies to Rich Froning.

      what? you mean pulling them down to the level of people that achieve HONESTLY? People that live their lives without large scale public deception? How about this: how many people in the world would KICK RICH FRONING’S ASS at Crossfit if he was a natty? Heaps. You know why? Rich wouldn’t be able to sustain that intensity without career ending injuries or getting rhabdo. More than likely, he’d just burn out, like so many do. There’s an old saying that if you took steroids out of body building that the champ would still be the champ. I call bullshit. Just because the champ has a large roid budget and active androgen receptors does not mean his body ever produced enough hormones in the first place. If you want to anticipate the damage of the steroid culture, look at the millions of young women trying to look better through surgery. At the end of the day, at least they only look like the joker when the filler outlasts their faces. Steroids can have long lasting, life shortening effects. People like us aren’t haters. We are the men that are prepared to be the best we can as god made us, and instead the enhanced physiques of the liars create a mythology of some superior male that does not exist. And I don’t believe that this damages the identity of masculinity with women, women aren’t all that motivated by drug taking narcissists. It damages the self esteem of men, of all ages, just like Pamela Anderson’s tits did for women in the nineties. You’re judging yourself by a standard that is NOT REAL. Your achievements aren’t comparable to real heroes, because there hasn’t been an authentic man in professional sport for a very long time. We’re not dragging this man DOWN. He dragged himself, the sport, and his status as a role model down by being a lying sack of shit. And I believe that to be true of all deceitful dopers. If you come out and say “this isn’t me, this is roids” I can at least respect you, for being truthful, and not perpetuating a god damned lie.

    2. Matthewf1971

      Yep, that’s all these steeple do is try and explain “they must be doping because they can do things I cant. Truth is they don’t want to work as hard, or just not driven enough to do what it takes. I know several of these athletes including Rich, so I am not talking about people I see on TV, they are people I actually have been around. I laugh at these guys now when they always start with the “he’s got to be using roids” pages on top of pages. Yet not one test ever came back anything but good old fashion hard work, diet, and smart training. Something anyone that is talking all this crap, obviously knows nothing about. So now that I’ve dropped the Mike, all you can start talking again, about something you don’t know about, someone you don’t know, and only what you’ve read on the internet. Ready…….GO!

    It’s quite obvious. If a sport requires strength and or endurance and or speed without finesse like soccer at the elite end they ate on something.
    Anyone who believes otherwise is a sheeple/moron.

    I mentioned to a keen cyclist recently about everyone in his favourite event the tour de France being on sone drug.
    He then accused me of being a conspiracy theorist and then mentioned the conspiracy of moon landings brig faked .
    Really the level of brainwashing is simple mind blowing.
    How do you get from steroids to moon landings?

  4. bogus

    What would a athlete not do for a $250,000. For a million dollar that justifies the use of anabolic steroids. You can’t blame the athlete. You blame the sport.

  5. Tyler

    lol. You don’t have to take steroids to be the best. It is about hard work. As you get better you have to keep pushing yourself harder to reach new heights everyday. If everyday is a slow paced workout then you are not every going to reach your potential. When you can finally do that last rep on that last set, then you need to bump up weight so you fail again, and try to reach that last rep just to repeat the process over again.

    1. Matt Rouge

      Wow, it is so obvious now. This whole site is pointless. Just work really hard! How did someone not think of this before?!

    2. Davey

      You, sir, are a moron. Hard work will not get you to the top. Hard work and hormones will. A natural athlete with amazing genetics wouldn’t be able to compete with a regular schmo with shit genetics on gear. It’s the truth and if you cant accept it, sit down and let the fucking adults talk.

    Put it this way, lets put it into context exactly what Steroids do: They drastically raise Testosterone and metabolism (which is because of raised Test).

    It’s no secret, anyone that’s ever taken a Test booster will attest to having somewhat increased gains and strength in the gym, but do people taking Test boosters come out looking like Froning or other elite Crossfit athletes? No. Steroids increases Testosterone to absolutely ridiculous levels.

    For some examples here, lets just assume the average dude has Test levels of 500-700 (which is normal I think). Taking a Test booster may put it up to 1000-1200 maybe for the duration one stays on the booster? I don’t know, but it goes up somewhat. If you eat cleanly and take every available supplement over the counter (including aspirin), you can get the levels up to 1500, but it’s very difficult to do.

    Steroids on the other hand can push levels up to 2500-3000, that is why you see bodybuilders and crossfit athletes look like they’ve been carved out of stone. Nobody can get like that naturally because peoples Test levels aren’t naturally in the 2500 to 3000 range.

    You can easily identify a natty vs a roid user, because natty’s won’t be between 5-10% body fat with huge muscles. The catabolic nature of the body alone will tear away at the muscle tissue because the act of “cutting” lowers Testosterone, that has been proven. At best it can be minimized, but it certainly isn’t going to jump to 3000 if you’re “cutting”.

    Look at someone like Alan Thrall whose openly admitted to not using them due to the fact there is still room to improve without them (as he said). He’s strong, muscular, and somewhat lean, but certainly doesn’t have the frame of Froning or other elite crossfitters. Thrall isn’t a crossfitter but trains strongman, but trains a lot.

    This is how the body works; if you’re putting on muscle, your putting on fat. If you’re losing fat, you’re losing muscle. Things can be done to minimize what’s gained and lost; however, to keep the Testosterone constant to do this is so difficult it’s next to impossible. That is unless you take roids.
