yupp. If you don't think so you haven't been around people that take roids.
I'm actually wildly unimpressed. I'm a skinny little runner/cyclist guy (~59 kg) and I do sets of ten reps with a bit over half that (I have no idea what I'd max at, zero interest in maxing). I'd expect someone with arms that look like that to not be struggling to up 26 kg. He has a roided out look, but he's not impressively strong for his size.
Definitely on roids, and never seen form like that lol
he aint clean. end of story.
73kg and on steroids?
Professional bodybuilder/athetic fitness. Also works as a trainer at the local gym. Gives 10 Les Mills' BodyPump training sessions every week(not exxagerating, 10 a week and he does them all with real heavy weights as well !!) + also lifts weights on his own. Has been doing that for almost 10 years now.
Gets tested for illegal substances at least once every year at fitness competitions and is a regular blood donor. Has always been clean.
I was more hoping he'd lift in sync with mr. musclebound.
btw, that is normal, when you focus your training; some of it is genetics as well, but in general, when you strength train, you get bigger ... time and dedication add up. Those bodybuilder competitions don't allow steroids and you see how huge they get (some of them try to get away with juicing).
Diet and exercise are a motherfucker, huh?
Btw, the dude in the above picture eats almost exclusively only protein products(whey protein, protein puddings, protein bars, BCAA-s etc.) with a side of a big bowl vegetable salad and olive oil. Almost no "real" food at all. If I had to guess his macros, I would say something like 40% protein, 30% carbs, 30% fat, with most of the carbs coming from veggies like carrots and beets.

Would be really strange if he trained to such a build by having such an incredibly shitty form...And as others posted before, for that kind of Biceps, he does not really have that much weight.
In the end the winner is still the last man standing.
I curl 50s too and I'm not nearly that big. Dude is roiding for sure. Big but without the strength to match his size.
You can tell your "friend" I think he's a pussy.
Damn this guy is fugly! It looks like he's wearing one of those super hero suits for kids! :O
i'd bet my dick that he's used steroids extensively. my brother is a freak and he's 100% natural and he's nowhere near that big but he's big (in relation to their height, that guy is 6' tops) enough that people say "damn, that's a big guy"
i'm a big guy and he's a lot bigger than me (i'm taller and 230lbs, but my arms aren't as big around as my head)
and you simply can't get arms like that naturally, even a freak's body doesn't recover fast enough to EVER build up that much muscle and by looking at that guy's face and his slender bone structure, he's not even a freak, he's just a normal guy who got some good gear and worked his ass off
and that's the think steroids + anything but stellar work ethic = no results worth mentioning
that guys has juiced and he's worked his ASS off, so props to him
i don't subscribe to the "steroids are cheating" thing, that's like saying "people who work out are cheating" and who says that?

i wish people knew shit or weren't so goddamn lazy they could google it.
steroids allow you to recover faster. if you work out the same muscle 2x a week you're wasting most of your time because it takes 7-14 days for an average person to recover completely. steroids just let you work out 2 times in a week and benefit/recover completely
that's all it does, accelerates recovery. you work out = you tear your muscles down. when they heal, they get bigger each time. more tear downs = more recovery growth
that's all roids do. let people who want to bust their ass get results
