Natural Physiques - Here's How Gifted "Natural Bodybuilders" Actually Look Like

The following physiques are achievable naturally. However that does not mean that everybody can look like that naturally but you can get pretty close - without a doubt. It will take time and will hurt a little more than you think. Honestly, most people will be quite happy to look like the guys below. There are many who will say that the physiques we are about to present you look small but are you even close enough to judge them ? If you are bigger you are most likely not......

"We cast away priceless time in dreams, born of imagination, fed upon illusion, and put to death by reality."

- Judy Garland 

Yordan Yovchev (former Olympic gymnast)

Winner !

Yes, his lower pecs are pretty well developed..(no homo).

Not that big with the shirt on !

The King

As you can see Jovchev is very lean and has underdeveloped legs because big lower body is actually a disadvantage in the sport of gymnastics since most of the strength moves are arm and shoulder girdle dominant. You do need explosive lower body to perform floor routines...etc but you don't need heavy/big legs. He is 164 cm/5.4 ft tall and his weight is 62 kg/136.6 lb. This is actually pretty heavy weight for similar height and is about 10lbs more than the guidelines outlined in the guide "How To Spot A Fake Natural" but he is not exactly contest ready and will need to lose about 6-7 pounds to get there. 

Keep in mind that Jordan Jovchev has been a professional athlete for decades and I doubt he is "as clean as they come" but he is definitely not an abuser. Also as you can see his body does not have that "steroid thickness" and he is not ultra "dry". So, in my opinion with training, diet and good genetics (sorry) you can get to look like that without steroids. 

Rock Climbers

Rock Climbers are also a good example of what can be achieved naturally in terms of size. Why ? Being bigger simply does no help in rock climbing and taking steroids for the sake of being big is not a good idea. Climbers may still be taking drugs for recovery and strength but bigger muscles also equal slower mountain climbing. Who would want that ?

This is Chris Sharma - one of the most popular rock climbers out there

Rock climbers are very lean and have strong forearms and back
while also spotting underdeveloped legs

Not as big as you would like but that's life or as they say it in France:
C'est la vie !
Chick are digging the rock climbing physique !

Soccer Players

Soccer players while not natural (they do take drugs) represent physiques that are achievable naturally.

Gay ?
Did you see that one coming ?

Pretty good physique when you think about it !

There you have it - physiques that don't require steroids. Life is not that bad after all ? Do you agree ?
