Argentinian INBA PNBA athlete Matias Scopinaro showcases jaw-dropping back transformation after 13 years of natural bodybuilding.
Building a shredded back will vastly improve your physique. A muscular and ripped back will help you with daily tasks, stabilize you on the barbell bench press, and enhance your V-taper. International Natural Bodybuilding Association (INBA)/Professional Natural Bodybuilding Association (PNBA) athlete Matias Scopinaro went to social media to display a spectacular transformation picture of his back after 13 years of natural bodybuilding.
Matias Scopinaro is an INBA PNBA competitor from Argentina. He’s a 3x Natural Olympia competitor and earned a spot in the top 10 in the Classic Physique category at 2021 Natural Olympia. And Scopinaro hasn’t been shy about his strong views on drug use in natural bodybuilding.
On April 13, 2022, Matias Scopinaro uploaded an amazing 13-year back transformation photo on Instagram (IG). Scopinaro stated (translate to English):
“13 YEARS DIFFERENCE.
WITHOUT STOPPING, FOCUSED AND ALWAYS TRYING TO PROGRESS A LITTLE MORE EVERY DAY. CONSTANCY AND PATIENCE ALWAYS WIN THE RACE.
THE RESULTS COME WHEN YOU STOP THINKING ABOUT INSTANT GRATIFICATION AND SEE THE PATH AS A LIFESTYLE, WITHOUT PASSION NOTHING IS WORTH IT. WHEN YOU ENJOY THE WAY THE RESULTS COME, IT IS INEVITABLE. I SEE THESE TWO PHOTOS AND I PROJECT MYSELF INTO THE FUTURE… WHAT WILL THE NEXT VERSION LOOK LIKE 13 YEARS FROM NOW?
FORGET THE CHEAP SHORTCUT, DO THINGS RIGHT, STICK TO IT OVER TIME, AND YOU’LL BE AMAZED AT WHAT YOU’RE CAPABLE OF ACHIEVING NATURALLY.”

Natural Bodybuilding Prohibits Drug Use
Natural bodybuilders rely on well-thought-out structured plans to build the best natural body. The INBA PNBA league vets every contender through the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) drug-testing standards. WADA is an elite drug testing standard for professional athletes. The INBA PNBA’s mission is to provide a platform for bodybuilders to compete in a fair and safe environment. Athletes who fail a drug test will be stripped of their title and placed in the Hall of Shame.
Natural Bodybuilding Training
The training for natural bodybuilders will differ from bodybuilders in leagues that don’t test for drugs. Of course, doping enhances your physique to allow it to build unnatural amounts of muscle. And performance-enhancing drugs gives you the capability to lift a weight that otherwise wouldn’t be possible. So natural bodybuilders train differently than bodybuilders using PEDs. For example, PNBA Men’s Bodybuilding competitor Peter Cichonski does his workouts outside to take advantage of the sun’s natural light.
Moreover, natural bodybuilders won’t be able to train with as much volume since recovery is imperative for muscle growth, and steroid users recover faster between workouts. As a result, some natural bodybuilders don’t train any more than four days a week to allow their bodies ample time to recover. However, their training intensity is still high, and many INBA PNBA athletes still train with a decent volume.
