Is Tim Gabel Natural?

Tim Gabel is an upcoming fitness model super star from Germany. At 18 years of age he is still a ‘teen’, and yet the physique he has developed would be respected in every gym he walks in.

Of course, due to the constant growth of the fitness community Tim Gabel has gained a lot of follower and popularity on the social network sites such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram…However, can you really achieve similar muscular development naturally? Can you be this big at such a young age? Can you do it? Let’s see.

1.Tim Gabel is only 18 years old

At 18 years of age you are considered to be quite young when it comes to bodybuilding. Most people actually start bodybuilding between 16-25 years of age. That’s to be expected since this is the time when males become more self-aware and want to improve their looks, usually for vanity reasons.

‘You gotta look good for the beach man!’ {is thinking every man}

To have the development of Tim Gabel naturally at 18 years of age seems unlikely. He has barely finished growing up and yet he has more muscle mass that people 10 years older and with more experience in the gym.

Does this makes any sense?

2.Tim Gabel’s shoulder and trap development screams steroids

The shoulder and the trap area have the highest concentration of androgen receptors and as result those places are the first to ‘blow up’ when one starts using anabolic steroids. At the same time most natural bodybuilders have really hard time achieving complete, 3D looking delts. Tim Gabel has that covered at a very young age.

As you can see in the photo below Tim Gabel has shoulder development that most people will never achieve naturally, no matter how hard they train. On top of everything Tim Gabel has insane conditioning and still looks fuller than life.

3.Tim Gabel is quite muscular for his height

We had really hard time finding the stats of Tim Gabel and after checking various sources we concluded that Gabel is about 5’7″ at 175 lbs. This is indeed a lot of mass and is 25 lbs more than what our guide shows.  How is a man at 18 years of age already 25 lbs over his genetic limits?

4.Tim Gabel looks larger than life and composed in Photoshop


Let’s just say that Tim Gabel looks out of this world, especially for his age. Full muscle bellies, veins like a road map all over the body, super low body fat levels and unreal size.

What’s not to like as they say? Having a body that looks composed in a digital editor reveals the usage of anabolic steroids. For more information consult this post.

Final thoughts

It’s very unlikely that Tim Gabel is natural. There are two many arguments pointing in the opposite direction. The biggest issue to overcome and let go is Tim Gabel’s insane development at such a young age.

If he looks like that naturally at 18, maybe at 32 he will be as big as Ronnie Coleman without every taking steroids?

Yeah, right…
