Less weight with more reps and sets tights the muscles brings you only fitness, but heavy weight with less reps and sets, enough supplements makes you a bodybuilder! About steroids, there is no famous bodybuilder that you can tell haven't used steroids, and there is no steroids without any side effects. Its all you have to decide whether to go for steroids or not!

But for all young bodybuilder, please do not go for steroids! 
While training know your ideal body measurement as per your weight and height to be a bodybuilder, there are many calculators available train as per it.

In 2010, Ronnie had bad changes in his muscle symmetry, his left side muscles arms, lats, etc are smaller in size than right! It was due to spinal cord pressure from neck. To treat it, ronnie went for spinal cord surgery in 2011 and got well! For any bodybuilder, symmetry is most important. Train muscles equally.
