Why is there people bigger and leaner than steeve reeves who try to claim natural? He is the epitome of natural bodybuilding. People try to attribute better training and diet, food was healthier back then and they trained how it is recommended to train now for optimal natural gains. If you question someones nattiness pull up this picture and compare.
That is all
>hurr durr if he looks better than me then he must be on roids
Stop burning steroid users at the stake just because they actually strive to be aesthetic and maybe they will come clean. Yeah it's wrong they lie but they have too because how freaking butthurt you nattys get that they are actually willing to do what it takes to achieve aesthetics
Testosterone was commercially available starting in 1939. It didn't catch on though until 1945 when the book the Male Hormone was published. This was the point when bodybuilding physiques changed dramatically overnight. Steve Reeves won the Mr. America title in 1947. His physique is very much in line with the dramatically altered bodybuilding physique of that period. Can you show me a comparable physique before 1939? I very strongly doubt it.
Sandow would look very close if he didn't avoid training chest.
Also I think that is just an artfully created shadow that exaggerates his bicep. Photoshop is not a modern invention.
