How Much Muscle Can You Build Naturally
Check out my client Ali’s transformation where he put on a whole bunch of muscle
Even after lifting weights for a while and already laying down a solid foundation of muscle it can still be pretty challenging to get an accurate idea of what to expect as a natural.
What’s actually possible? For beginners forget about it you’re navigating through a sea of infinite bullshit that makes it almost impossible to be able to tell how much muscle you can build as a natural lifter.
In the public View when a bodybuilder or someone that’s trying to build muscle take steroids they lose points for effort.
Even though any unnatural bodybuilder might have worked very hard to get to where they’re at, steroids are still looked at as cheating by the general public.
For that reason, in an effort to look more credible to the public you have a bunch of bodybuilders that are on steroids that swear that they are steroid free and achieved their physique naturally.
Unfortunately, there’s no 100% accurate way to be able to determine who achieved their and who achieve their physique with steroids.
Or is there? I mean with some bodybuilders it’s clearly obvious no matter how much they claim that they never took steroids you could tell these people were on steroids at least at some point.
But with many people, you just can’t tell and I think that this is a very important thing for you to determine cause it’s the only way that you’re going to be able to set realistic goals and expectations in regard to building muscle mass.
If we’re setting goals and expectations that can only be achieved with drugs and we’re not taking those drugs then we’re going to end up being disappointed because our measurement of success is flawed.
Well, luckily there is a way that we can figure out what’s possible while being a hundred percent natural and the only real way to do that is by going back in the past.
To be sure that we’re looking at a physique that was built naturally we have to look back to a point in time in which steroids weren’t even around.
Steroids weren’t developed until a little under a hundred years ago. It wasn’t until the late nineteen-thirties that steroids were developed,
so we have to assume that any bodybuilder that we have records of before the 1930s had a natural physique.
Eugene Sandow was one of these bodybuilders. He was born in 1867 and became known as the first natural bodybuilder and is now known as the father of modern bodybuilding.
At only 5 feet and 9 inches, tall Sandow weighed over 200lbs, had a 48″ chest only a 30″ waist and had 18 1/2″ biceps.
That’s impressive for someone that you know had no possible access to steroids.
Edward Aston was another strongman of the 1920s and he had a one arm clean and press of 243lbs and had an excellent physique with clear visible blocky abs.
