Good evening bodybuilding fans.
Thank you for stopping by.
Today we’re going to be looking at steroids and a certain Simeon Panda.
Specifically, we will be looking at is Simeon Panda natural or taking steroids.
Did you know that the Bubonic Plague was started by anabolic steroids?
Okay, how about the fact that both World Wars were also caused by the discovery of Trenbolone?
No, you didn’t know that either?
Good, because it’s complete nonsense.
If you were to believe the media and most members of the general public.
However, you’d believe that anabolic steroids were to blame for every catastrophe in the world.
Despite steroids not even being around until the late 50s and early 60s.
As you’ve probably guessed, the media and the general public tend to blow things out of proportion when it comes to steroids.
Steroids are dangerous.
There’s no denying that.
But they are also misunderstood.
You see, there are countless different types of steroids out there.
Each one is specifically designed to serve a different purpose.
Taking Winstrol for example, will not provide the same results as taking Tren.
Nowadays it seems as if anybody with a half-decent physique is accused of being on steroids.
Which is why we’re going to be looking at is Simeon Panda natural or taking steroids.

First and foremost.
let’s get the legal mumbo-jumbo out of the way.
We are in no way associated with Simeon Panda and have no proof that he is using, or has ever used, anabolic steroids.
We also have no proof that he is natural.
The content of this article is therefore based purely on speculation on our part.
And should not be taken as gospel fact.
While we’re at it, we also should say that anabolic steroids are dangerous and that we do not condone their use.
At the same time, we also do not judge those that use them.
As if used correctly.
They can be advantageous.
With that said.
Let’s now find out more about Simeon Panda and his awesome physique.
Simeon Panda is a bodybuilder from London, UK.
With one of the most impressive physiques in the fitness industry.
In fact, in terms of aesthetics.
He has one of the most aesthetically pleasing physiques in the entire world.
He has won multiple fitness shows and contests have one of the largest social media presences in the industry.
And he claims to have done all of this while remaining natural and free from steroids.
What’s more, he is a Musclemania Pro competitor.
Which means that technically.
He is a pro bodybuilder now.
Competing as part of the Musclemania division, he has gone up against some of the biggest names in bodybuilding, including Chul Soon.
Both of which boast incredibly impressive physiques.
Simeon, however, is considered by many to be in a league of his own as he has huge legs, a huge upper-body, great muscle bellies, cuts, and symmetry such as Kris Gethin.
With one of the tightest and smallest waists in the business.
When he is not competing he is either modeling for fitness brands or supplement companies.
Including My Protein, who are the largest supplement company in all of Europe.
He has close to 5 million fans on Facebook alone.
And those numbers are growing every single day.
He is a big lad, as he stands at 6ft 1 and weighs in at between 230 and 235 pounds.
Depending on whether he is off-season and bulking, or cutting for a show.
What’s more, he is ALWAYS in shape, with estimated off-season body fat percentages standing at around 8%.
He has a 31-inch waist, 21-inch arms, and a 50-inch chest.
Giving him some incredibly impressive measurements.
He is now expanding his reach and branching out into Activewear as he owns SP Aesthetics, and Just Lift.
He was also recently voted by Forbes, as one of the top 10 fitness industry influencers on the planet.
Simeon Panda has a lot of fans on social media such as Bradley Martyn and Calum Von Moger.
In fact, together, he has more than 9 million of them.
However, he also has his haters, and when we say, haters.
We really mean it.
There are many people out there that not only dislike Simeon.
But they cannot seem to stand him.
We’ve never met the guy so don’t know what he’s like in real life, but online he does come across as a little arrogant.
And he is adamant that he has not used steroids.
And that he never will use steroids.
The reason why people have taken offense to this.
However, is because it looks as if that is exactly what he has done and that he has the barefaced cheek to lie about steroid use in the process.
As we said, we have no idea if he is natural or not.
But assuming he is lying like so many people seem to think he is, there would be a lot of incentives to do so.
You see, if he admitted to using steroids, there aren’t many supplement companies that would sponsor him and support him.
He would also lose a lot of fans on social media.
As a lot of bodybuilders out there are against the use of performance-enhancing drugs.
He also would lose his Musclemania pro card.
As the company is “natural” (note the use of inverted commas).
Losing a few followers on social media is nothing to the average Joe.
But when you have millions of followers.
That means big money in terms of advertising revenue.
Simeon therefore, cannot afford to lose followers.
And if he admitted to using steroids.
He almost certainly would.
Well, as you can see, claiming natty certainly has its advantages.
But do we think Simeon really is a natural bodybuilder?
Or do we think that he is bending the truth?
Here are some pieces of evidence both for.
And against, potential steroid use on Simeon’s part:
First and foremost, you need to have some pretty big balls (ironic if he is on steroids) to claim to be natural if you’re not.
Simeon claims, time and time again.
Be it on social media, in online articles, or even in person.
That he is a natural bodybuilder and that all of the muscle he has built over the years.
Is through hard work, diet, and hardcore training.
Now, anybody can potentially lie.
But that doesn’t mean that we can’t give Simeon the benefit of the doubt in this instance.
Perhaps he is so confident in claiming to be natural because deep down he knows that he is.
That’s right, Simeon Panda has passed drug tests in the past.
Many of which came after winning shows against some of the best in the industry.
You see, Muscelmania is an organization that tests its athletes and claims to be a natural organization.
Simeon has competed several times for them.
Which means he has passed several drug tests.
So, surely that puts an end to things, right?
Well, not exactly, as you’ll see next.
Pro athletes and Olympians must compete naturally.
If they test positive for banned substances they are either suspended for years or fired on the spot.
They also have to pay hefty fines.
The great thing about Olympic drug testing is the fact that it is RANDOM.
That’s right, you can be drug tested at any time.
Without warning and you have to attend the test right away.
Failing to arrive for a test can result in suspension.
Even if you happen to pass the test a few hours later.
The idea behind random drug testing is that athletes have no idea when they will be tested.
So they can’t plan a steroid cycle because they’ve no idea how long the substances will stay in their systems.
Musclemania drug tests, however, are not random.
These tests are conducted as soon as a bodybuilder step of the stage.
Knowing when they are being tested means that they can plan a cycle to give them muscle growth and fat loss in time for the show.
With the added bonus of having none of the steroids left in their systems.
So, in theory, Simeon could run a cycle in the lead up to a show.
And then finish it in plenty of time so that no drugs are left in his system.
This doesn’t mean that he has done that.
Of course, it just means that it is a possibility.
Simeon Panda is 6ft 1 and is pushing 240 pounds in weight.
Arnold Schwarzenegger was 6ft2 and competed at 240 pounds.
And he has admitted to using steroids to help him build his huge physique back in the day.
Heck, even Frank Zane, who won the Olympia weighs less than 200 pounds.
He has been found to have been using steroids, and Simeon is a good 30 – 40 pounds heavier than him.
Simeon is a very big guy and his weight is all from pure muscle.
At a relatively young age, many experts believe that getting to his size naturally would just not be possible, even with the best genetics in the world.
It could be that Simeon is a genetic marvel.
Or it could be that he isn’t actually natural like he claims(not such as Connor Murphy).
And that behind closed doors he is using steroids and hormones to help him build muscle, burn fat, and recover after a tough workout.
Normally, if you want to get an idea of whether anyone is in gear, you compare how they looked years ago, to how they look now.
If over 5 years, they look like they’ve only gained 10 pounds of muscle or so, this could be a sign of natural gains.
If, however, over a couple of years they look to be 40 or 50 pounds heavier, there’s a strong chance that they used steroids to build that extra muscle.
Simeon has been bodybuilding for around 15 years now, and he hasn’t undergone any dramatic transformations as he has always been big.
He’s added a little extra size, but nothing shocking.
So, from that, we can either assume that he has been natural all this time, or we can assume that he used steroids from a young age and has basically been on some sort of cycle ever since.
A lot of the time, when bodybuilders use steroids, they also use HGH for men, or Human Growth Hormone, to assist in muscle growth and recovery.
HGH can cause changes to a person’s facial structure, especially around the jaw as it can cause it to become blocky.
If you look at some of Simeon’s pics online, you’ll see that his jawline is indeed very square in appearance.
If you look at Simeon’s website, you’ll see that the biggest transformation he underwent was from 2002 and 2006.
During this time, he added huge amounts of muscle mass and literally transformed from a skinny kid to a huge beast of a man.
If we were into gambling, we’d bet that it was between 2002 and 2006, that Simeon used steroids.
If he did indeed use them, and that he stayed on cycle ever since.
Based on our findings and common sense, we believe that Simeon Panda is on steroids, or has used them to get to where he is today.
We know he’s passed drug tests, and apparently, polygraph tests too, but just look at the dude.
