Is Bradley Martyn on steroids or natural?
As with any famous bodybuilders, weight lifters comes the question of “ Is that person on steroids?
To put things in perspective, their before and now pictures are often compared to know if they muscles they’ve built are due to their genetics which helped them get this amazing physique or was it with the help of steroids?
Men who bulk up naturally are large right from a young age, with exercise and a protein-rich diet they needn’t sweat it for beefy muscles for their genes do most of the work as they respond abnormally and excessively to the exercises and diet.
Anabolic steroids have increased receptors in muscles groups of the upper body causing the classic bulkier upper body and lean lower body with slim waists.
Here are reasons to think that one might be on steroids to bulk up their muscles:
1.Comparatively quick spike in muscle mass
On comparing the pictures of Bradley Martyn taken during his 2011 NPC championship (which looks like the result of determined work outs, diets and decent genes) and his recent pictures there seems to be a increase in his size quite obviously noticeable, gaining approximately about 30 pounds of muscle mass, where most weightlifters struggle to achieve the same in their lifetime.
2. Rounded firm muscles
Muscles built with the help of steroids are often rounded, appear full and thick. In some of Bradley Martyn’s pictures one cannot not notice his perfectly rounded and thick shoulders of his neck and arms, way thicker than normal.
These kind of muscles are particularly found in people using ‘Deca durabolin’ a commonly taken steroid in weight-lifting and bodybuilding communities.
One of the side effects of using steroids is the increase in blood pressure, which is reflected through his skin as the muscles and skin have increased blood flow. Even when they’re resting or relaxing, people on steroids appear flushed due to the same.
In certain pictures and videos Martyn’s face does appear more flushed than usual, causing speculations.
Since Bradley Martyn has neither denied nor agreed to the usage of steroids for his ripped body, based on certain evidences it is only natural to believe that he may have taken steroids for his current physique.
Based upon the evidence listed above, we believe that Bradley Martyn is in fact on steroids.
Remember, we have no proof of this, other than what we can see with our own two eyes, but we do believe that getting to that size naturally is just one step too far.
