17 of the Biggest Natural Bodybuilders in the World - Real or Use Special Gear ?

The biggest natural bodybuilder in the world is a great example of what the human body is capable of when steroid substances are not used. Instead, they choose to earn all of their muscle and size through a strict diet and exercise. While it is possible for someone to achieve the same look as these guys naturally, it will be a long process because they have world-class genetics.

In a world of steroids and supplements, it's hard to believe that there are still natural bodybuilders out there. But they do exist! 

Although these people have achieved their physiques without the use of drugs, that doesn’t mean that you or I can look identical to them. These people have worked hard to reach their full potential through years of dedication and a healthy diet.

Although these people have achieved their physiques without the use of drugs, that doesn’t mean that you or I can look identical to them. These people have worked hard to reach their full potential through years of dedication and a healthy diet.

In this article, we’re going to give credit where credit is due. So, in no particular order, we’re going to list the ten biggest natural bodybuilders in the world today. All of these guys have accomplished their fame just through protein powder and a lot of dedication and hard work.

Jamie Alderton

Jamie is a model and an inspiration to anyone who wants to achieve greatness. His muscular physique and relentless work ethic are the stuff of legends. Jamie competes in the WBFF, Musclemania, and BNBF federations which are one of the main natural bodybuilding federations. They do a lot of random tests, so if you take steroids at any time throughout the year, you will be caught.

Jamie also has no indications of steroid use when looking at his body; he has nice, thick hair, small traps, a ripped midsection, and no flushed skin or any gyno. He is 100% natural.

Jeff Seid

Jeff Seid started out his fitness career well by taking his first steps during the month before he graduated from high school. However, he believes that the moment he started lifting weights at the age of just eleven was truly when his love for fitness began. Growing up in Washington with his parents and two sisters, Jeff began weightlifting at the age of 11.

Chris Jones

Chris Jones has a popular bodybuilding YouTube channel with millions of views. His videos often feature him at his best looking, as he is a human being with a high testosterone level. Many people are surprised to learn that he's black and weighs only 180 lbs.

However, despite being healthy and having a timeline in which he would look great as a natural bodybuilder, he decided to do some dirty tricks and gained another 17 lbs of weight. He’s not quite collapsed, but if he lost just a few percent of his body weight, he would look very skinny.

Connor Murphy

Connor Murphy is a YouTuber from Texas who has become popular for his social experiments and pranks. His videos get millions of views soon after they are uploaded, and he has hundreds of thousands of fans on various social media platforms. Connor was bullied as a child and went to great lengths to come out of his shell.

Anton Antipov
Anton was born in Belarus. He’s now living in the United States and is married to a woman named Daria. Anton is 6’1″ tall and his weight fluctuates between 210-215 lbs. (95-98 kg). His off-season weight is usually around 15% body fat while his contest day weight is 5-6% body fat. Anton competes in the NPC and IFBB categories. He started training when he was 16 years old and started competing when he was 20 years old.

Sadik Hadzovic

Sadik Hadzovic was born in Yugoslavia, and his mother is one of his greatest inspirations. Claiming that she was the one who taught him the value of hard work, Sadik credits her with helping him develop the grit he needs to train in his room before going to the gym.

Sadik Hadzovic, from Bosnia and Herzegovina, fled his home country during the war in the early 2000s and moved to the United States. He found success as a bodybuilder in 2011.

Sadik is an excellent example of an all-natural bodybuilder. Sadik is a big guy, standing at 5’11 and weighing over 220 pounds. He competes in Mr. Olympia’s competition to showcase his beautifully sculpted body – without any type of artificial enhancement.

Mike Thurston

From partying all the time to becoming a successful entrepreneur, Mike Thurston started out as an average teenager. But through hard work and determination, he’s managed to achieve an incredible physique by the age of 26. By 2016, Mike had become a personal trainer and founded his own health and fitness company. But before all that, Mike spent time working in retail after graduating from college.

Simeon Panda

Simeon Panda has a giant body with striking aesthetics. His size, at 16 years old, was already impressive. By the time he was 20 years old, he was massive! After this growth spurt, his muscle mass slowly decreased but he learned how to eat properly and managed to stay shredded. This led him to receive several sponsorship deals (including MyProtein).

Donte Franklin

One of the most well-known bodybuilders in the world is Donte Franklin. Some may call him a “genetic freak” as his DNA is only 1 in a million. If he had shredded his muscles using steroids, he would have been a very tough contestant at the Olympia competition. He has amazing natural arms, ripped pecs, and a ripped midsection.

There is no question that Donte is natural because he has competed against legitimate federations such as the INBA and NANBF. They perform random tests throughout the year to detect any potential steroid users, including blood and urine tests.

Ron Williams

Ron Williams is one of the most decorated natural bodybuilders in history. He has won more than 250 natural bodybuilding competitions, including Mr. Natural World, Mr. Natural Olympia, and Mr. Natural Universe titles. 

Ron began bodybuilding at the age of 18 after his boxing coach recommended weight training. Around that same time, Ron enlisted in the army where he competed internationally in several sports. When he got really into bodybuilding, his genetic ability became very clear.

Steve Cook 

Steve Cook is one of the Gym Shark crew, starring alongside David Laid - aka Robin. Many natural bodybuilders look impressive without a shirt on, but Steve Cook’s biceps can protrude from even the loosest of clothing.

Men’s physique guys also get some criticism for wearing board shorts. Steve, however, sets the record straight by saying he has tree trunks for legs...even though they are in proportion to the rest of his body.

Steve’s timeline as a natural bodybuilder is very similar to mine. He was already jacked in high school when he played American football- and hasn’t added any muscle mass since then. When he started taking bodybuilding more seriously, he became skilled at dieting and learning how to lower his body fat percentage, rather than adding mass.

Rob Riches

Rob Riches is a fitness model from the United Kingdom who has achieved success in his field. He currently resides in Los Angeles, California, where he has seen an endless growth potential. Rob has hosted, directed, and starred in his own TV programs which have been very successful. He’s won numerous modeling competitions and is considered one of the world’s leading fitness models today.

Rob Riches, once known as ‘roid riches’ for failing a drug test, was actually cleared of any wrongdoing. However, despite some bizarre/slanderous rumors of him testing positive for Anavar – this was completely false.

In reality, Rob supposedly failed a drug test by taking a pre-workout supplement called Craze which was spiked with a stimulant called N,alpha-diethyl-benzeneethanamine. Many people assumed that because Rob had previously claimed to be natural, he must have been using steroids; but all evidence suggests otherwise.

Mike O’Hearn

Often referred to as ‘Mike O’Hearn’, Mike gets trolled daily by people calling him a ‘fake natty’. However, there is ample evidence to suggest he’s telling the truth.

Firstly, you would never stand a chance against the INBA because they have an extensive database of steroid users. Secondly, even if you miraculously avoided detection, you would not risk it in the first place because they have a ‘Hall of shame page on their website where they list athletes who have failed their tests. So you would effectively be risking your career by competing with these guys.

Mike doesn't have any steroid symptoms present on his body and his muscle proportions aren't out of the ordinary for a natural bodybuilder. However, . . .

Mike is bigger than many IFBB pros who we all know have been on steroids for decades. Although just an inch taller, he has more muscle on his frame than Arnold Schwarzenegger in his prime. That has got to raise some doubts.

Lazar Angelov

Not many people are aware of the fact that Lazar Angelov was once a basketball player and served in the army for a brief period. He is now considered one of the best natural bodybuilders on the planet.

He is undoubtedly the fitness model with the most posters in gyms all over the world- his ripped physique and striking good looks definitely play a role in this.

Ulisses Jr

Regardless of whether you're into fitness or not, if you're on Instagram, you've likely seen pictures/videos of Ulisses Jr. His chiseled physique and ripped 8-pack abs make him one of the best natural bodybuilders out there today.

Ulisses Jr.’s Instagram account is full of great photos. He’s always working out in the gym, playing with his kids, or enjoying the outdoors. It’s a great way to see all of the different angles of his life.

Ulisses Jr. is one of the most successful online fitness gurus out there. He’s won multiple bodybuilding competitions over the years.

 Paul Krueger 

Paul Krueger shocked the bodybuilding community by winning the 2021 Natural Olympia just weeks after earning his pro card. He has since become a force to be reckoned with, after winning a professional bodybuilding competition on his debut.

Although this first paragraph might make it seem like Paul Krueger was a professional bodybuilder for only a short time, that is not entirely accurate. In fact, Paul Krueger has been an amateur bodybuilder for over 25 years before earning his pro card. His most recent show was the 2021 INBF Phoenician Classic, where he jumped on stage after a 16-year hiatus.

Brandon Lirio

Brandon Lirio is an accomplished fitness figure, with titles in the Mr. Natural Olympia and Mr. Universe competitions. He also has a lengthy list of accomplishments in the professional basketball league, the PNBA. Brandon started lifting to manage his anxiety disorder after joining the military in 2006.
