Is Scooby Werkstatt A Natural Bodybuilder?

Scooby Werkstatt has flooded the Internet with bodybuilding related videos before it was even popular. He built the foundation for the rest of the YouTube fitness channels which are now taking over the bodybuilding world. Scooby Werkstatt also claims to be a natural bodybuilder but is it true?

Hm…let’s see what we have here…

1.Scooby Werkstatt is too big;

According to Scooby’s profile on he has the following body stats:

Height: 6’3″ – 190 cm;
Weight: 238 lbs – 109 kg;
Body fat: 8%

In comparison Arnold Schwarzenegger who has admitted to steroid use had the following stats:

Height: 6’2″ – 187.5 cm;
Weight: 235 lbs – 105 kg;
Body fat: 4-6%;

Conclusion: Scooby Werkstatt has body stats very similar to the ones of Arnold Schwarzenegger in his prime.

2.Scooby Werkstatt is not a young man.

Scooby Werkstatt is over 50 years of age and yet displays muscular development that puts down to shame much younger guys with higher testosterone levels. Scooby’s transformation over the last decades indicates that he was bigger at 50 compared to his 30s. This is completely illogical since testosterone levels decrease as people grow older.

3.Scooby has the Photoshop look

Is Scooby Werkstatt A Natural Bodybuilder?


In many of his photos, especially the ones between 2007-2010, Scooby Werkstatt looks somewhat synthetic.

He is too lean, too dry and too full – especially in the chest. Similar look is known as the Photosop effect and is not seen among true natural bodybuilders.

An additional factor will once again be his age. It’s a well known fact that old men have really hard time dealing with stubborn body fat around the mid-section.

Scooby does not have similar problems and is actually leaner in this area compared to his younger days. Makes one wonder, doesn’t it?

Conclusion: There are undeniable facts that Scooby Werkstatt is most likely not a natural bodybuilder despite his claims and powerful online presence.
