In the video below, Lee Priest claims that he was completely natural until 19 years of age when he won Mr. Australia.
In case you are wondering, this is how Lee Priest looked at 19 years of age.
The combination of extreme Photoshop conditioning and mass make it hard to accept that a human can actually achieve a muscular development of this magnitude at the age of 19 naturally. Truth be told, I have a very hard time accepting that a human can achieve similar muscular development naturally at any age.
Why are bodybuilders always downplaying the effectiveness of steroids?
It’s really simple. They want to be politically correct and often lie even to themselves.
What about hard work and training?
Hard work and training can only do so much. They cannot produce muscle mass beyond the natural potential whereas steroids can because they alter the default synthesis of protein. As a result, the body builds muscle mass beyond the natty limits. There isn’t anything else in the world yet that can match steroids in terms of muscle growth production.
