How do you train (always relatively heavy)?
Do you rely heavily on supplementation?
Do you stay relatively lean? Can it be done?
Could someone post a pic of a true,,, TRUE natural.

The guy in the link above says he always stays within 3 weeks of photoshoot ready, and claims natural?
Please only serious answers.

miserable

How do you set up your diet?
eat a lot of crap and a lot of chicken brokli fella

How do you train (always relatively heavy)?
5x5 type strength oriented routines 3 times a week

Do you rely heavily on supplementation?
i used to take proteins then i read gh15 and tossed it all in the trash. i sometimes take vitamin pills

Do you stay relatively lean? Can it be done?
i think so it's not that hard to stay lean if you're active



that guy in the link is not natural at all

his arms are way too big

So you really don't have a life?
Sound like shit, not to be an asshole.

How do you do it? Can only the super dedicated ever be truelly natural?

Seems like its just better to be chubby and strong if you are natural cause nobody wants to eat chicken and broccoli 24/7 and not have a life.

perhaps but you cannot hypertrophy without roids but you can gain a pathetic amount of strength instead

i think getting strong as fuck is a priority when off drugs. if you want to get big you got to take gear but if you want to get pretty good strength, you can do this naturally and its probably a great base before taking drugs. I think strength progression is the priority with good form obviously if you want to get bigger naturally.

True natural. Yeah thats me allright. Did you dedicate this thread to me? Smiley



Old pic, but its the best shape I got in during my "career". Could of been harder, but it is what it is. I was on a diet for like 7 months and was pretty fed up at the end. Can it be done? Of course it can, but you have to sacrifice A LOT in order to get there. Basicly dont have a life.

I won`t get into this with you again,but remember,you can only speak for yourself and your experiences, which I believe are true, as you look good and look strong,but there are tons of young guys with better genetics than you and me who will gain muscle on more of a bodybuilding type of routine,rather than a 5 X 5 power type set up.

By no means am I a bodybuilder in the true sense of the world but I like to eat and like to lift.

What is life like?
Fine - I do not drink anyway. I have have 2x jobs. One FT for a Govt agency and another as a part-time doorman. I enjoy both. I get to see friends when I want pretty much.

How do you set up your diet?
Both my jobs enable me to eat as and when i want. I do not take protein shakes to work as I do find it a little awkward and embarrassing but I will generally take 1-2 shakes a day in the house. I bring a packed lunch to work and some fruit and I can buy extra sandwiches etc in shops near my work if I need to. I also drinka  lot of water now.

How do you train (always relatively heavy)?
Gnerally I train heavy on at least one exercise per bodypart. I prefer to train smart rather than heavy and have found by cycling training poundages I can continuously make gains. I am aware they will become smaller over time but that is the way of things.

Do you rely heavily on supplementation?
I only havhe one functioning kidney so I limit myself to 1-2 protein shakes a day max. I do like to take ZMA occassionally as it is cheap and I do get very good sleeps and I will sometimes take a caffine supplement before training.

Do you stay relatively lean? Can it be done?
Yes, genetics and I think heavy training does play a part. I do not gorge myself on food nor do I starve myself. I do not have veins in my abs but i am lean. My arms are vascular and I have a 6 pack when I tense.

Could someone post a pic of a true,,, TRUE natural.
I am a TRUE natural but i am not posting a picture. I am not an inshape bodybuilder. Just a guy who likes to lift weights and train.

For me to be lean naturally is gonna be quite tough.
I have a slowish metabolism and I will have to eat like a bird to be and stay lean.

consider more cardio it supposedly make your body more efficient at using fat for fuel in the long term

Well my main dilemma is I'm gonna be natural for a few years after my current cycle due to personal reasons.
So I ask all these questions because I want to know how to train and eat while staying under 10% BF naturally.

i may add that i am not a real "bodybuilder"

What is life like?
pretty good on the whole, neither good or bad really

How do you set up your diet?
eat when hungry, one cheat day a week basically, dont count anything, stay away from sugar

How do you train (always relatively heavy)?
Yes, under 1 hour, 6x4 reps, two exercises per bodypart

Do you rely heavily on supplementation?
no. creatine and protein occasionally

Do you stay relatively lean? Can it be done?
of course you can be extremely lean natural. the problem is keeping size when lean Huh

Could someone post a pic of a true,,, TRUE natural.

if you have a balanced diet and a moderate apetitite while being active being lean should not be very hard

maybe it depends on your age and body type as well (if body types exist or not i dont know)

Here are some mandatory poses as well. I am actually glad GH15 isnt on this site right now, otherwize he might put me on a lot of stuff, lol! Grin






My shape is very similar to this these days, and I am very pleased with that, but as far as mass go - I cant get much bigger than this naturally. These pictures were taking 5 years ago, and allthough I feel I have improved in many areas in my body compared to these pictures - I am basicly the same size. But thats ok, because I really dont want/need to get any bigger anyways. I am more concerned about staying lean these days, and do a lot of cardio compared to weight lifting. I have to go now, my family is here, but I can share more information later if needed. Smiley
