Ott Kiivikas is a bodybuilder from Estonia who presents a spectacular physical development. Of course, like many others, he claims that he is a lifetime natural bodybuilder. However, is this really true? Can you have a similar body without drugs?
How big is Ott Kiivikas?
Ott Kiivikas has the following stats:
Weight: 192-194lbs (87-88kg) in contest condition
This is about 38lbs/17kg more than what nattyornot.com’s guide for natural bodybuilders suggests.
Nonetheless, let’s put the numbers aside and just compare Ott Kiivikas to former bodybuilding champions from the past.
Number 1 – Three Times Mr. Olympia Frank Zane
Frank Zane had the following stats in his prime:
Weight: 185lbs-85kg in contest condition
Conclusion: Ott Kiivikas is an inch shorter than Frank Zane and 9lbs heavier than him.
How on Earth are natural bodybuilders reaching the legends from the past so easily?
Number -2 – Serge Nubret
Serge Nubret was a French bodybuilder known for his aesthetic physique. He had one of the best upper bodies, especially chest, in the history of bodybuilding.
Serge Nubret competed against Arnold and friends weighing 200lbs-90kg @ 6′ @ 5% BF. This means that Ott Kiivikas is 4 inches shorter than Serge Nubret and only 6-8lbs lighter than him in contest condition. How is that possible naturally?
Number 3 -Lee Labrada
Lee Labrada is one of those bodybuilders that people call giant killers. He is famous for his aesthetic physique and grace. In his prime, Labrada competed at 5’6″-168cm @ 185lbs-192lbs – 84-87kg @ 5% BF.
In comparison, Ott Kiivikas is 2 inches taller and about the same weight as Labrada. How is it possible for a natural to get so close to an IFBB pro?
Ott Kiivikas Is Ultra-Shredded
The conditioning of Ott Kiivikas is out of this world. His musculature is big, shredded, dry and “grainy”. He simply looks composed in Photoshop. Natural bodybuilders rarely bring something similar to the stage.
To summarize: Regardless of your wishes and beliefs, you can’t build a physique similar to the one of Ott Kiivikas 100% naturally. Even if you have one in a billion genetics, you can’t have that ”technological” look because it’s just not natural. People are free to believe whatever they want, but the truth is still the truth.
Disclaimer: The goal of this article is not to hate on Ott Kiivikas. He has accomplished a lot in the sport of bodybuilding, but that does not mean that the crowd does not deserve to know what it really takes to make it in the muscle game.
