He came up with it after years of studying steroid users in Boston-area gyms and comparing them not just to non-steroid users in the same gyms, but also to bodybuilders from different eras. For a 1995 study, Pope and his coauthors estimated the FFMIs of Mr. America winners from 1939 to 1959, before steroids were readily available. The group includes future B-movie star Steve Reeves, whose physique was so iconic that he was name-checked in The Rocky Horror Picture Show . The average FFMI was . (One of the highest was George Eiferman, Mr. America 1948, with a FFMI. His upper body was later the model for George of the Jungle, a 1960s cartoon character.) Even today, with all we’ve learned about training and nutrition, an FFMI in the mid 20s is still considered the ceiling for natural bodybuilders. Anything above 26 or 27 is suspect.
Hi Erny – I’m still skeptical but I’ll be 40 soon and have the classic spare tire – not a massive oversize tire but still more than I need. What’s my best supplement (crazy bulk or otherwise), in your opinion to slim/trim as first priority but still build muscle. I’m guessing Testosterone changes are a big factor for me now. I have broad shoulders & strong legs, but could do with bigger arms (currently average) and flatter belly/waist. Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks so much for all your research & sharing your experience.
Anafuse – The Only Supplement to be Named to Two Top 10 Lists
This all botanical product has surpassed our expectations. In its first year of release it immediately grabbed the attention of the fitness community and was ordered again and again in rapid succession. That buying activity was a major reason it made number 3 on the Top 10 Bulking Supplements for 2015 list. Early the next year it was no surprise the all natural Anafuse became the number 1 ranked Natural Anabolic on the Top 10 Natural Anabolic Supplement List. Anafuse continues to build steam and is a top seller due to the large number of customer repurchases.
