I have been asked frequently by my clients at B.A. Saiyan Transformations about Christian Guzman's potential steroid use.

As a seasoned MMA fighter and trainer, I took a deep dive into his social media for three weeks to uncover the truth about his natural status.

In this article, I'll explain my findings, so keep reading to find out if Christian Guzman's exceptional physique resulted solely from pure genetics and hard work.

Let's dive in.

Is Christian Guzman Taking Steroids?

Christian Guzman is unlikely to be taking steroids, as his weight is average for his height and he does not appear incredibly lean or muscular.

Drawing from my extensive experience training both natural and enhanced athletes in MMA, I've encountered individuals without any formal gym training achieving a more muscular and shredded physique than Guzman, suggesting his natural approach.

According to a study in the Sports Medicine journal, androgenic-anabolic steroids (AAS) can have powerful effects on athletes, like strength and weight gains and increased lean muscle mass [1].

Christian Guzman made a fortune from fitness vlogging and entrepreneurship, not just as a bodybuilder.

His desire to motivate young aspirants to cultivate a healthy lifestyle may have influenced him to avoid PEDs and launch his businesses in the clothing, food, and fitness industries.

Guzman has given a great deal of time and energy to building the Alphalete as a haven for young people seeking to live an active, fit, natural, and healthy lifestyle.

Why Do People Think Guzman Uses Steroids?

Christian Guzman, a prominent fitness model, is often speculated to use steroids due to his ripped appearance on social media.

However, my research shows he lacks typical steroid indicators like:

  • Extreme Vascularity
  • Large Breast Tissue
  • Rapid Bulking
  • Matured Skin
  • Hair Loss

His well-defined physique and slightly larger chest seem to be the products of rigorous gym training, a healthy diet, and natural supplements.

"When you work out, your muscles swell, which pushes the veins closer toward the skin's surface and adds to the appearance of bulging."

- Antonios P. Gasparis, M.D.

The veins in his arms, likely more visible due to exercise, don't match the pronounced vascularity seen in steroid users.

Christian Guzman's Current Stats

  • Age: 30 уеаrѕ оld (Born: Fеbruаrу 20, 1993)
  • Неіght: 6 ft (183 cm)
  • Wеіght: 194 lbs (88 kg)
  • Body fat percentage: Approximately 7%
  • Chest: 44 inches
  • Waist: 32 inches
  • Arms: 17 inches

Can Christian Guzman's Physique Be Achieved By Hard Work Alone?

Christian Guzman's physique is attainable with dedication to diet, exercise, and mindset.

His journey from a skinny teen to a muscular bodybuilder involved years of consistent compound and accessory lifts, evolving into a mix of strength and isolation exercises for functional strength and muscle sculpting.

Unlike peers Matt Ogus and Scott Herman, Guzman's fitness regime balances intensity with sustainability.

His routine includes separate leg and shoulder days, plus push-pull sessions.

He combines the workout routine with a diet rich in whole grains, veggies, lean proteins, and whey-protein supplements, which can support performance and recovery, as shown in the study from the Frontiers in Nutrition journal [2].

Adding multivitamins and natural testosterone boosters can further boost progress.

Was Christian Guzman Tested for Steroid Use?

Christian Guzman may have been tested for anabolic steroid use while competing in amateur bodybuilding competitions several years ago.

However, there is not enough information online, nor are there any results of the drug tests he may have passed.

Being an entrepreneur, motivational speaker, and YouTube personality, his personal and professional life is more open to the public. In my opinion, if he had had a recent steroid test, he would’ve shared the results on his social media profiles.
