Who is David Laid? (age, height, and physique)

David Laid is a well-known fitness influencer hailing from Estonia but has lived most of his life in the States. Over the last couple of years, he has built an impressive online following, with more than 1.45 million YouTube subscribers and 2.8 million Instagram followers. David is known for having quite a lean aesthetic and is also known for being quite charismatic. This is what allowed him to build such a big online following.

David started his fitness journey just like how most skinny guys do.

He was bullied in high school for being scrawny and then started training as soon as he could to bulk up. This was boosted by the fact that at age 14 he was diagnosed with scoliosis.

The doctors told David that a good resistance training program would certainly help with the condition.

That said, David does not compete in bodybuilding, and looking at his physique it makes sense. He is not really that big or heavy.

Is David Laid on Steroids?

First off, as mentioned before, David is not really that big, nor is he incredibly dense. Density is something that can be hard to understand but will tell you a lot about someone’s physique.

For instance, let’s look at David vs two Pro bodybuilders who we know are on Steroids – Chris Bumstead and Jay Cutler (at his peak):

Height (cm) Weight (kg) Density
David Laid: 188 90 0.48
Chris Bumstead: 185 104 0.56
Jay Cutler: 175 124 0.71

As you can see, he is quite a lot less dense than Chris and really less dense than Jay. Now, this is not the only thing we can use to prove whether or not someone is natural.

  • David does not seem to be so dry that he looks like he is using “drying” Steroids. Sure, he is quite dry, but nothing insanely so
  • David is not that big, strong, or muscular to make it seem like he is on Steroids
  • David does not seem to be suffering from the Androgenic side effects associated with Steroids

Therefore, it is unlikely that David Laid is on Steroids, but there can be gaps that we do not see. Because he is a social media star, we will only see what he wants us to see.

Is David Laid on Natty or Not?

For someone to be classified as natural they technically cannot be using any Anabolic and Androgenic hormones, SARMs, Peptides, or anything of the sort. David does not appear to be using any Anabolic Steroids. As discussed, he lacks any of the tell-tale signs that he might be using Steroids.

That said, it does look like he might be using some Peptides, perhaps even HGH – human growth hormone.

HGH is not really something that will give off any visible side effects, but can help tremendously with keeping you lean and looking healthy – which is exactly what David looks like…

Therefore, it depends on your definition of Natural.

What Steroids Could David Laid be on?

Again, I do not believe David Laid is on Steroids. He might be on TRT, but overall he just lacks any signs that he is using Anabolic Steroids.

That said if we were to guess what he might be using, it would be as follows:

  • Human growth hormone
  • HGH Fragment
  • Clenbuterol
  • T3
  • Testosterone
  • Winstrol
  • Anavar
  • Other Peptides
