    Well, I was taking it from this quote

    No Jay is a product of great Chemistry as in pharmacology:icon_mrgr .

    Lets face since the 60s there hasnt been one IFBB Pro who aint juiced.

    You dont get that big , that ripped that strong on GNC products.

    If you could do a 315 bench natural you are a very strong person.

    Squat Id say 405 I dont do deadlifts so I wont venture a guess.

    The pros of today are monsters Ronnie Coleman was 300 lbs shredded. Arnold in his best was what 230 .

    It is crazy and in every gym it is prevalent .

    If your looking to train natural , Then think more realistic and bring down your poundages. There are always genetic freaks that could bench a mack truck but like I said if you could do a 315 Bench as a natural trainer you have done pretty good for yourself

    Umm...I wasn't claiming that he wasn't juiced. Neither was Arnie, Ronnie, Yates, etc etc.

    However, Jay's win wasn't a product of being on steroids. It was a political victory, because the Olympia has just become absurd as of recently.

    However, I don't think it requires any degree of chemical assistance to hit the lifts I posted for a 200lb man. I was able to reach them without chemical assistance, and have known a great degree of people that have done the same.

    I think people aren't giving themselves enough credit.

    Pro bodybuilding is and always been about Politics , Arnold's victory over Mike Mentzer I think in 1980 was as clear cut case.

    No I agree people can make nice gains and get nice strength and your lifts are nice , But alot people look at these bodybuilding mags and get unrealistic about what they could archieve as a natural trainer. That was my whole point , Not to denigrate. But even I as a younger trainee used to think I would look like my favorite , Im 50 now So i grew up with Arnie , Zane . Columbu etc . But those guys ate Dianabol like it was it candy.

    I think you should train natural , with good diet and a sensible routine and realistic goals like you set. Most people will do ok. But dont expect to be Jay Cutler.

    Much respect to you.

    Yeah, the 1980 victory was pretty ridiculous.

    And yeah, unfortunately, a lot of people are pretty deluded about natural potential. It was a nice aspect of Brawn, in that McRobert makes the distinction quite clear.

    Unfortunately, he does it every other page, haha.

    How many people do you know who have reached 500lbs deadlift at a BW of 200lbs who were not competing in powerlifting?

    Well...myself for one.

    I got a couple of buddies that have done it as well. Known some high school kids that have too.

    Edit: That being said however, competing in powerlifting doesn't necessarily mean you are strong. As long as you can lift the bar on the 3 lifts, you can compete. You won't necessarily be competitive, but still.

    All right, substitute "competing in" with "competing or preparing to compete in". I tip my hat to your peer group's desire for self-improvement. I've known a variety of athletes around the 200lb mark who were capable of superhuman things, and although I suspect that several of them could have reached a 500lb deadlift, I don't think any of them ever did.

    Well again, with the "prepping to compete in" aspect comes my whole "bodybuilder hopeful" aspect I was going for.

    Again, I imagine that any individual with a desire to enter in bodybuilding is going to have a firm foundation of weight training under their belt, rather than some other sort of athletic endeavor.

    I admit, my view may be skewed because of the people I associate with and the books I read, but I just don't see these levels to be all that extreme for a healthy adult male at 200lbs with a specific goal and good training. Yeah, if they're training to be a better football player, it might be tough, but to be a better lifter? It shouldn't be impossible.
