Wouldn't he have been bigger if he HAD taken steroids? Back in those days, they were the RAGE for body builders. The only steroids that were popular THEN were the one's that increased mass. Lee really didn't have a lot of mass.

I would say it is extremely unlikely that Lee would have taken anabolic steroids. On the other hand, I have no doubt that he was taking a variety of other supplements, knowing his interest in nutrition. What they are, I have no idea.

Im my years of working out I have seen many many many steroid users and not a single one looked like Bruce Lee. Thats not saying he definitely didnt take them but its very unlikely given his body morphology.

i think it unlikely that he took steroids, but there are plenty of athletes reaping the benefit of increased base strength and faster recovery time that many anabolic steroids give without increased mass.
They are abused in everything from Bodybuilding to Badminton at international level.
it takes a long time for steroids, especially those available 30-40 years ago, to be fully flushed from the body. Athletes go to great trouble to ensure they have 'clearance time' prior to competition, this way the blood looks 'clean' if tested.
Recreational users do not have such worries, and often do not cycle steroid use in such a way that they leave the system completely, leaving trace deposits in some major organs, including the liver.
there was no trace of such substances found in Bruce Lee's post mortem, and seeing as how he had no reason to mask the presence of steroids in his system, it is unlikely that they would not presesnt themselves by some quirk of fate.
