How does Vadya Sonawdekar train?

In the beginning of his journey, he installed a pull-up bar in his house and did a lot of pull-ups. After that, he joined a gym and started lifting weights regularly. Eventually, after increasing his calories, he reached 54 kg/119lbs. However, in his words, he has an underdeveloped body due to his fear of squats which he is now trying to overcome.

Could you achieve more as a natural?

Of course, especially if you train your legs. As you can see in nattyonot.com’s guide for natural bodybuilders, we believe that a male natural bodybuilder who is at 5’7″/170cm tall can reach 149lbs/67.7 kg @ 5%BF naturally. However, that’s only for guys with above average genetics and great dedication.
