Can you tell if someone is using steroids just by looking at their development?

    Can you tell if someone is using steroids just by looking at their development?

    I see some guys at my gym, and they are so lean, but huge. I wonder if I can look that big, but without steroids. If they are taking them, I won't be able to look like them so I was wondering how I could tell the natural's from the steroid users. I want to be realistic about my gains. Thanks.

    what is your definition of huge ?
    William F. Buckley describes a conservative as, "someone who stands athwart history, yelling Stop." - and then proceeds to drag civilization back to times best left in history's dungheap.

    If someone looks too big to be natural they probably aren't. When i see people that don't train that hard, get really big very quickly i doubt very much they're just on the Met-Rx!

    I can't describe huge because it is more the look between their wrists/joints and the shape and height of their muscles. Their whole body doesn't look huge, but their muscles do. Does this make any sense?

    Yes they will have breasts and no hair LOL

    I dont believe that bloke has always been natural... I would bet at some point he has done a couple of cheeky cycles and just lies his ass off. You only really have their word to go by I suppose.

    enormous traps and veins galore is usually what i use to determine the juicers from the rest.

    That said there really is no way of knowing without them pissing in a cup.

    haha and even then who really knows

    Well you could associate it with certain things I guess. Like, if you notice that he gets heavy acne at times or whatnot. That is all I can really think of. It would be pretty hard to tell. I mean, if he is all the sudden lifting amounts of weights he wasn't able to before, I think you can assume he is.

    You can't tell man. Tom Venuto did not take roids, he is not huge and probably has a extremly strict diet.
    It take years of training though. Ask em how long they have been training.
