There are two ways to answer the question "how big can a natural bodybuilder get?" The first way is by using a mathematical formula created by solid research that has been done over many years where a specific formula was created in order to demonstrate the known limitations of the human body.
You will see below that there is now a specific formula that we can use to create the maximum amount of muscle that any frame can put on by measuring the height and the circumference of the ankles and the wrist. But that will not tell you how to put on the muscle and it will also not tell you exactly how to break through the many barriers that you might find in your way.
In fact using the formula below you will be able to tell how much muscle you can put on your body without using drugs but that will obviously not show you the balance, symmetry and depth as well as the general conditioning of the body presented. Winning a bodybuilding contest takes a lot more than just putting on the maximum amount of muscle that your frame can hold.
A champion natural bodybuilder is someone who has mastered the art of presentation of his/her body. It takes a lot more than just adding the maximum amount of muscle that one can. Winning a natural bodybuilding contest takes years of practice, enormous discipline and a wealth of self-knowledge to know exactly what your own body is capable of.
Based on an analysis of some 300 class and overall title winning drug-free bodybuilders and strength athletes from 1947 to 2007 the following equation, predicting the maximum lean body mass someone of a given height and bone-structure can achieve without the use of anabolic drugs, was derived.
H = Height in inches
A = Ankle circumference at the smallest point
W = Wrist circumference measured on the hand side of the styloid process.
(The styloid process is the bony lump on the outside of your wrist.)
%bf = The body fat percentage at which you want to predict your maximum lean body mass
So, as an example when using this equation, for a 5'9" (69 inches) tall bodybuilder at 10% body fat with 7.0? wrists and 8.7? ankles the equation would yield:
173.7 Pounds (Maximum lean mass)
To convert maximum lean body mass to maximum bodyweight at any given body fat, use this equation:
Body weight = (Lean body mass / (100 – %body fat)) x 100 Using our example bodybuilder, at a lean and healthy 10% body fat his total bodyweight would be:
Body weight = (173.7 / (100 – 10)) x 100 = 193.0 pounds
