If these guys were alive today and had Youtube fitness channels, everybody would say that they're on roids.

Blaha would be making videos about how they're too big and too full for such low bf.

Just saying. Natty limit is much higher than most people think.

So taking amphetamines is still natty?

Of course it is. It is just so damn easy to say everyone is on steroids for making yourself feel better when you look like shit.

One thing all these old time body builders share is relatively small chest.
So is a big chest a sure sign of steroids or was it just not very popular muscle back then?
>>
I think without the use of amphetamines and cocaine to cut, maintaining the leaness with that amount of muscle as a natty isn't realistic. You could however have the same size at say 12%-15% bodyfat or the same leaness for less muscle mass as a modern natty.
>>
>>35181756
Just wasn't considered aesthetic
>>
>>35181756
I think big deltoids are a better tell, and zits on the back, both combined is almost a 100% tell

Chest is mostly geneticaly defined
>>
>>35181756

Not considered aesthetic and hard to build with just the floor press.

I've been accused (even by my own family) since I was 16 of being on gear. In high school I was tested twice for a plg meet & after a football game where the parents of the other team complained. Genetics is the biggest factor in surpassing the "limit"... My dad had huge calves and 21" arms = thanks dad.

>>35181814

Indeed. That's my opinion. Feel free to disagree and retort. I would like to be wrong.

>>35181865
Your theory just makes no sense -> Having a too hard cut and taking drugs for -> Somehow prevents your muscle loss

Is this what you mean?

If they were on roids they'd have bigger chests. androgen receptor hotspot and all. I'm sure a few fedoras will chime in about testosterone being synthesized in 1902 though lol.

90% of bros can't get lean and stay big because they don't track their macros at the autistic level required. The goal when cutting is to reduce calories to AT MOST 15% below maintenance whilst not dropping in strength on any of your lifts. If you can do that, you're not losing muscle. It requires a very tightly controlled diet counting calories and partitioning them exactly right. I've done it on my current cut and it does work. You only lose 0.5kgs a week. You have to lean bulk so you only cut for about 6 weeks max. That means if you need to drop more than 3kgs on a cut, you over bulked.

At this rate it will take about 5 years of lean bulk and cut cycles to reach "natty limit". This agrees well with what just about everyone including Scoober says.

This is true.

This doesn't make something impossible though. It's just priorities in life.

Pretty much. Do correct me.

From a HEALTH & FITNESS perspective what are the advantages of being this lean and big year round vs being 15% bf husbando mode?
>>
>>35182151
Nothing. You get shredded for vanity. That's why anyone does it.
>>
>>35182176

If there's no actual health benefits to being sub 10% bf I'mma aim for husbando no homo 15% bf mode then.
>>
>>35182128
Already did.
>>
>>35182212

So if you cut that hard without drugs you wouldn't experience too much muscle loss?

(Not trolling I genuinely don't know)
>>
>>35182228
If you cut too hard, you'll experience muscle loss whether or not you're taking amphetamines/cocaine, that's why they are not a factor in any way.
>>
>>35182228
You lose muscle on a cut if you're in a catabolic state (your body is breaking down muscle for fuel). if you keep your strength I.e lifting the same reps at the same weight as before the cut while being in a caloric deficit then the weight loss is fat. You can do this for about 6 to 8 weeks before it becomes a problem. (See Lyle McDonalds work for why). That's why you need to calculate your bulk so you're only gaining about 1kg per month. You want to bulk 3 months, cut 4 to 6 weeks. Repeat.

There is really no other way to do this naturally.

Common push exercise was not bench press but overhead press. Bench press simply was not a thing back then.

Thanks. But I thought the reason things like Clen and Ephederine (and cocaine in the case of old timey lifters) work is because they slash the bodyfat without the catabolic effects?

>>35182352
I know ephedrine causes the release of a hormone which speeds up fat loss. It also raises blood pressure. So there's that.
>>
>>35181766

Wouldn't DNP or an EC stack be comparable to amphetamines?
>>
>>35181800

where are the traps
>>
>>35182446
>>35182746

Yeah that's my point. How realistic is it that someone could cut to this level without cutting agents like EC, DNP, Clen for modern bbers or cocaine and amphetamines for old timey bbers like Sandow etc?

My personal theory theory is this:

> Myostatin-related muscle hypertrophy (or myotonic hypertrophy) is a rare genetic condition characterized by reduced body fat and increased skeletal muscle size.

>90% of bros can't get lean and stay big because they don't track their macros at the autistic level required.

the real problem is that bodyweight (measured correctly) fluctuates like crazy from day to day for no good reason

I mean, you need like a 5-day average or a fitted like on your measurements to even be able to tell what the fuck is happening

our biology sucks ass
>>
So what was the outcome, can you be as shredded but have as much as old timey bbers as a modern natty without cocaine, amphetamines, DNP, clen, EC, etc?
>>
>>35181756
big chests were considered feminine back then.

huge chests didn't become popular 'till arnie
>>
>>35184115
Literally no cutting agents are necessary.

Only steroids will do something that is not naturally possible.
>>
>>35181662
How did they get so lean?
>>
>>35184276
vegan diet ;)

>>35184328

Carb cycling

And yes, they knew what are macros so much better back then.

As a natty how do you get this shredded and lean while maintaining that size?
>>
>>35181662

They at more wild meat which has naturally high amounts of creatine. This is way they had much better gains naturally.

This is interesting. Do you have a source on this?

>Natty limit is much higher than most people think.

Agreed, but it takes like a decade or more natty to reach it, and after the first two years you get such hugely diminishing returns on gains that most people can't see the difference between a guy who has been training three years ands a guy who's been training over a decade.

Plus with all the steroids available now, even the actual natty limit looks unimpressive in comparison to many people. It's a shame.
