We’re not the natty police and who cares what anyone else wants to do, everyone is on their own path.
But when people claim natty that clearly aren’t, it damages people’s perception of what is achievable without juicing, and lets unrealistic standards for people who don’t know any better yet.
There’s a point where every lifter realizes they’ve been fed a ton of BS from the industry, for some it happens sooner than others.
The reason a lot of these guys won’t admit to it, is because they’ve got sponsorships to uphold.
If they’re acting like the sponsor’s supplements got them this jacked, admitted to doing something potentially illegal to achieve the results is going to hurt the image.
#5) Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
6’3, 236lbs, 10.5% BF, FFMI 27.2
“I tried them but nothing happened. roids don’t work”, he says. He admits having tried them at 18 but says he hasn’t touched them since.
But let’s be honest, the rock is part of the WWE, starred in movies like Hercules and is everywhere on Instagram and makes incredible gains at 44.
#4) Lazar Angelov
6”0 195lbs 4.5% bodyfat FFMI 28.0
Lazar is one of the most aesthetic individuals in the fitness industry to date. He is so cut, you can’t even imagine his skin holding water weight.
You can read on his website’s BIO : “despite never taking (and never will) roids…” http://www.lazarangelov.com/biography/
#3) Ulisses Jr
5’10 210lbs at 7%BF with an FFMI of 28.2
However, with an FFMI of 28.2, there is not a chance that he’d be natural. It’s ridiculous that he’d claim to be natural, yet, he and his buddy Simeon regularly do.
#2) Simeon Panda
6”1, 220 5%BF FFMI comparable to arnold’s : 28.7
During an interview in 2014, he claimed he was a pro natural bodybuilder, and that it is possible to achieve that physique. It’s just that he’d been working on his for 10 years. BULLSHIT.

#1) Kali Muscle
5’9 250lbs 5% BF and FFMI = 35
This is no joke, an FFMI of 35. He is the incarnation of anabolic roids. Yet to this day, Kali Muscle still claims to be all natural, and having built his physique through exercise and nutrition only, in prison.
In comparison, Frank Zane has an FFMI of 26.1
Here is a video of Kali displaying his juice stack : fruits.
The Fat Free Mass Index (FFMI) is an indicator of the level of physique of a subject. Unlike the standard Body Mass Index (BMI), the FFMI considers fat free mass.
A BMI minus the fat indicating anything over 25 is extremely likely to indicate signs of steroid use. However, without tests, It is impossible to prove 100% that someone is fake. The FFMI should only indicate how much of an anomaly the athlete is.
