4:02 – How much muscle do steroids add?
11:25 – Downsides of steroids
11:57 – Natty vs enhanced discussion

In this video we will look at scientific studies and real world examples to determine how much muscle can be built naturally versus enhanced. The natural examples we’ll consider are Alex Leonidas (AlphaDestiny), Geoffrey Verity Schofield as well as pre-steroid era lifters from the early 1900’s. On the enhanced side, we’ll look at 212 Mr. Olympia Champion Shaun Clarida and IFBB Classic Physique Mr. Olympia Chris Bumstead. We’ll then look at some downsides of enhancing and some practical takeaways when it comes to the decision of whether to use anabolics or not.
