Today, I present you physiques that can become a reality without anabolic steroids.
1. Jung Ji-Hoon a.k.a. Rain
Note: For those wondering, this is what 6-8% BF looks like on a natural.
Jung Ji-Hoon (born June 25, 1982), better known by his stage name Rain, is a South Korean singer-songwriter, actor, and music producer. He played the leading character in the movie Ninja Assassin. (I tried watching the movie but couldn’t finish it. Sorry, but it was not that interesting. My attention deficit disorder didn’t help either.)
Jung Ji-Hoon’s look can be achieved naturally. I don’t know how heavy he was in the movie, but his main website says that he is 6’2″ and weighs 176 pounds.
Obviously, on the Internet, there are many people who are 6’2″ @ 240lbs and shredded, but we all know how natural they are.
I would rather look like Rain and be called names than attempt to be a wannabe bodybuilder and become a permabulker instead.
2. Jason Statham
I while ago I made a dedicated post on Jason Statham. You can read it here. The look in the photo below can be achieved naturally.
For those wondering, he looks to be about 10-11% BF judging by that photo.
3. Bruce Lee
Bruce Lee was about 5’7″ and 135lbs according to most sources. He was also ripped to the bone. Similar stats are definitely achievable naturally, but maintaining the low body fat levels is not easy.
Note: I wrote a post revealing how you can reach a similar look. You can read it here. Obviously, nothing is set in stones. It’s just an example. Always use your own judgment.
4. Jasper Benincasa
Jasper Benincasa (March 25, 1921 – January 6, 2012) is a strength legend in the bodyweight community. His physique is definitely achievable naturally. You can read a super detailed article on him here.
5. Brad Pitt
Brad Pitt’s physique from Fight Club has been analyzed many times. Some say that he is super skinny, which is correct, but the truth is that many naturals would be even skinnier if they get as lean. Nevertheless, a similar look can be yours without drugs if you have the required structure.
I realize that those examples are not exactly impressive because on the Internet everyone has 18-inch arms and six pack abs. However, my job is to present realistic goals.
I wish we could all look like Simeon Panda or Lazar Angelov naturally, but I don’t think that’s an option. The natural potential is not that high.
Hi Natty or not. I read that Brad Pitt in fight club was 155 pounds and doing reps with 270 on the bench press. Is that still natty status
I doubt that bench press number is correct, to be honest. Not impossible, just unlikely.
Good list. Bruce lee wasnt natural though. He started using anabolic steriods when he started weight lifting in the US, but he definitely looks natural in this pic
Charles Bronson, the actor, not the prisoner, stayed lean and in shape well beyond fifty…hell, probably way past 60.
