    Can I gain a strongman physique without HGH or Steroids?

    Basics: Male, 23, 5 foot 9 around 210 - 215 lbs with about 25% bodyweight


    Im not trying to be a competitor but I would like to add a lot of strength without putting on that much muscle

    thoughts? suggestions?


    Thanks in advance

    Without HGH or Steroids? Absolutely. Most people would encourage you to stay away from them. I'm assuming you meant 25% bodyfat (not bodyweight)? From that position you could go a few different ways.

    IMO, the best path would to be add some strength and muscle now. Using a clean diet, you'll even add a little weight possibly. Then after a few months, go on a diet and change your routine to cut the fat. This will show off some of the new muscular gains (and old muscle you already had) and give you more confidence when you and the people around you take notice. Then you can try to maintain your more lean physique, or bulk (or clean bulk) again and cut fat again after that.

    You want to put on as much muscle as possible, you just don't have to worry about fat covering it up. Most of the time muscle mass = strength.

    Eat a lot, lift heavy, and low reps.

    It is absolutely possible! Just takes years of dedication and a good diet.

    I am pretty sure most professional strongmen are 300+ lbs and are relatively lean for their size. Although a lot of them are relatively tall, some well over 6 foot.

    They are definitely not natural though
