Is Dickerson Ross natty? Do you think this body is achievable without roids? There's a 7 year difference between the first and third pic. The one in the middle is somewhere in between, he's my favorite bodybuilder, I've been following some of his advice in my workouts (Mostly the variations he does) especially when I work my bi/triceps and my muscles have started to resemble his. (much smaller but the same form).
why would he go through all the trouble of removing those tats if he was just gonna redo them on the other side like that?
I do agree that the right side is more aesthetically pleasing but jeez...
Exactly this. I work out to look like this guy, and if it's impossible to achieve then what's the point. No way in hell I'm roiding. I should probably stop browsing this board. It's full of negativety. I'd rather not know what the limit is, then you could reach full potential, and keep on working harder.
Thats how it is with everything though. You see something impressive, become involved in it, reach for it, but then you realize how basic your original understanding was and then you want more.... to get better. Better than the original thing that inspired you. Better than Brad Pitt in fight club. Better than Bruce Lee. Bigger, stronger, faster more more more. It never ends. Its fun, IMO. Roids make it more fun.
They are just not for me. I'd feel like I'm cheating even if I didn't compete. For me they're not worth it.
Luckily I have body dysmorphia but in the opposite way most here do, I think I look very good even if im just above average. Hell, even when I was a skeleton I thought I was kind of 'ripped'. It's delusional but I'm grateful for that, and it dones't keep me from trying to improve.
are you retarded? clearly I am bigger in every way, can you not see that that guy doesnt train forearms at all? are you so small you cant even understand
also im natty so why compare me to a roider, just by his middle physique alone you can tell the guy does a shitty upper body split with no heavy compounds other than a bench press
Middle, possible with a lot of hard work and a strict diet over years, but judging from the vascularity on his abs his not natty here.
Right, hell no. That level of musculature at such a low bf% just isn't doable. Add to that his overdeveloped shoulders(roids cause insane delt growth), crazy vasularity, and dryness(skin pulled super tight look), and there is no fucking way he's not on dat dere Celltech.
Left obviously natty no training.
Middle achievable natty for short periods of time, but it's hard to maintain that kind of muscle with that low bf% for extended periods. So achievable natty but he probably wasn't judging from where he is in next picture. If you up the bf% like 2-3% you would still be super ripped and much more realistic goal for a natty to maintain. He's probably 6ish% there.
Last pic hell no. You can get that muscle mass natty but you will never be able to achieve that low bf% and maintain pump like that. Just not possible.
What's the issue? Change your goals. Look the best you can look then work on strength, or whatever. Either way, just because that's not achievable natty doesn't mean you can't get huge or that you couldn't look that way.
Roiding or not, you are you and you will never look like him because you are not him. Try to look the best you can, m8, for all of us, but more importantly, for you. We're all gonna make it, brah.
You think the middle is small when it's actually great.
It's not that hard to readjust your perception when it's only your perception of others as small. If you look like middle pic and think your small you probably have body dysmorphia. Fact is its better than 99% of people.
How often do you ever see a guy like that in real life though? How often do you even see a guy like middle pick? Fact is people that hit their genetic potential are above even the top 1% of people out there in the real world. If you make it that far you'll look awesome and feel awesome.
The internet isn't the real world just the world through a screen, it's all bullshit. You should never let it effect you perception or your life goals.
