Is Anton Ratushnyi on Steroids? The 19-Year-Old Classic Physique Champion Speaks Out

Anton Ratushnyi: The Teen Bodybuilder Who Broke Schwarzenegger’s Record and Sparked Steroid Rumors


Anton Ratushnyi is a Ukrainian bodybuilder who started training at the age of 15 and has achieved remarkable results quickly. He has won three consecutive NPC titles, including the overall Classic Physique title at the 2023 NPC National Championships, where he became the youngest competitor in the division to ever earn his Pro Card. He has also been compared to Chris Bumstead, the current Mr. Olympia Classic Physique champion, who earned his Pro Card at 21.

Ratushnyi’s physique has drawn admiration as well as skepticism from many people, who wonder if he has used steroids or other performance-enhancing drugs to attain such a muscular and lean body at his age. Ratushnyi has consistently denied these allegations and claimed that his physique is the result of hard work, dedication, and genetics. He has also shared his three-year transformation on his Instagram account, where he has over 200k followers.




Ratushnyi’s achievements have also been compared to those of Arnold Schwarzenegger, who won the Mr. Universe title at 20 and became the youngest competitor in history at the time to earn his Pro Card. Ratushnyi has surpassed Schwarzenegger’s record by one year and has set his sights on becoming a champion at the Olympia level.

Ratushnyi is an example of a young and talented bodybuilder who has made a name for himself in the sport. However, his journey also raises some questions about the potential risks and benefits of competing at such a high level at a young age and the ethical and health implications of using steroids or other substances to enhance one’s performance. The bodybuilding community and the general public may need to consider these issues as the sport evolves and new stars emerge.
