Chris Lavado is a popular, proud member of the aesthetic crew who promotes the aesthetic lifestyle. He, just like the other members of the gang, is an alleged natural bodybuilder who relies solely on sound nutrition, proper supplementation, and training to build and maintain his powerful and muscular physique. However, there is data pointing in the other direction too.
1.Chris Lavado is too lean, too dry and too full.
Muscle construction is a very slow process when you are natural. For many of us, it has the properties of an illusion.
Furthermore, when the body is put on a low-calorie diet, preserving muscle mass becomes an uphill battle. Therefore, all people who present fullness, 3D details and thickness at a low body fat should make you ask yourself questions.
In the picture above, Chris Lavado is next to Jeff Seid and Matt Ogus – two bodybuilders/fitness competitors who are often accused of steroid usage. Note that he looks bigger than both of them in that particular shot.
2. A man is known by the company he keeps.
Chris Lavado is part of the aesthetic gang consisting of members with a highly questionable natural status. What does that tell you?
What does that tell you?
A man is known by the company he keeps, my friend.
3. Chris Lavado is ‘too heavy’.
According to online sources, the current bodyweight of Chris Lavado fluctuates between 175lbs and 195lbs at 5’9″. The body fat of Lavado is about 5-8%. In comparison, the popular bodybuilder and three times Mr. Olympia Frank Zane is also 5’9″ and competed at 185lbs. This means that Chris Lavado shares a muscular size close to the one of Zane. Makes you wonder, doesn’t it? How are modern naturals matching the size of bodybuilders from the Golden Era?
Note the insane muscular development of Chris Lavado’s legs.
Conclusion: Chris Lavado may not be the biggest guy out there, but the quality of his mass, as well as the peculiarities of his social circle, make his natural status highly doubtful.
