Generation Iron Network recently produced and released Generation Iron Natty 4, which features Douglas D. Grant.
In these clips, pro bodybuilders, coaches, doctors, and experts clash over the natural vs enhanced bodybuilding debate. What are the realities behind long term steroid use? And are natural bodybuilding leagues really all-natural?
The question of how essential steroids are to the sport of bodybuilding has raged on ever since the inception of the sport. It’s hard to ignore the potential risks of using steroids and other PEDs long term. But the question becomes not if there are risks but if the risks outweigh the achievements of the sport.
Natural bodybuilding leagues such as the INBA/PNBA dedicate their entire existence to providing a healthy and completely steroid-free alternative to untested pro bodybuilding leagues. The problem? These natural leagues are just less popular.

Specifically, the film dives into the Professional Natural Bodybuilding Association, aka the PNBA, a league dedicated to ensuring all competitors are free of performance-enhancing drugs. They claim to use the same drug testing that is implemented by the Olympics to ensure a truly clean sport. Any competitors who are found to fail the test are not only disqualified, they are banned for life from competing and added into a “wall of shame.”
