Steve Cook is an American bodybuilder and fitness model showcasing a tremendous muscular development and leanness dragging people into a persistent stupor on a daily basis. The majority of the confused teens on bodybuilding.com desperately want to have his body and are willing to do almost everything to acquire it.
But how do you get there?
Protein powder and deadlifts? Milk and squats? What is the key? Is Steve Cook Natural? Can you become as big as him without using anabolic steroids? Can you remain competitive in an environment where every athlete is looking for an edge? You are about to find out.
1. Steve Cook is huge.
Steve Cook is a big guy by anyone’s standards. According to his bodyspace on bodybuilding.com, he has the following stats:
Height: 6’1″ (185 cm)
Body fat: 5.8%
The data leads to the conclusion that Steve Cook is as big as the bodybuilders from the Golden Era.
The legendary bodybuilder Serge Nubret was 200-217lbs in contest condition at 6’1″. If we assume that Steve Cook is truly a natural bodybuilder, this would mean that somehow the naturals of today have found a way to acquire the physical development of steroid users.
Serge Nubret had one in a million body and genetics but wasn’t natural, and neither were the people he competed against on stage.
Yet the industry wants us to believe that nowadays natural bodybuilders can become as muscular as Nubret thanks to creatine? I don’t buy that. The natural potential for muscular growth is not that high.
2. The Classic Photoshop look.
Unnatural bodybuilders appear incredibly full and dry as if their bodies have been produced in Photoshop. Once you have accumulated some experience in the gym, spotting steroid users becomes easy because they all look artificial.
3. When Your Rivals Juice, You Juice.
To get the big sponsors, you have to be competitive. You have to fight the guy next to you. If he’s taking steroids, you are partially forced to inject too in order to stay in the game. Otherwise, your profits will go down, and the big companies will lose interest in you.
Why would Steve Cook be an exception? Think about it.
