    The routines in the magazines are useless!. The reason the pros are so big is because they are on un-godly amounts of steroids!. They are rich, and don't even have to make or plan out their meals. Someone does that for them!. The only thing they have to do is life the weights!. Everything elese is paid for!

    Have you ever though about the fact that they were'nt always pro's? They are pro's for a reason.

    Try to follow a plan that is set up for any IFBB pro and you will see its not just "lifting weights".

    The programs aren't useless but the simple fact that 20% is about training and the rest is nutrition.

    You can follow any training program but if you don't eat right, you won't get jack **** from it.

    Good point Bobo...they had to work up and continually win shows to qualify to get their pro card. You don't just jump into the circuit and become pro...

    I am learning a vauable lesson here...How many years have I read stuff on eating every two hours and waking up at night to drink a shake and thought to myself,that's not going to make that of a much difference.Then I tried doing just that and it has made all the difference in the world.It's the little basic fundementals that have made a huge difference,Looks like the Holy Grail is right under our noses we just need to pay attention and apply it..

    I also thought of priest before I even opened the thread. Arnold has great biceps but his triceps suck. LOL thats why almost every pic you see of him his arm is bent. Levrone has the great triceps and shoulders but has no peak on his biceps. Ronnies has freaky biceps and triceps but doesn't have the cuts or asthetics of preist. Almost forgot sergio. He has no peak on his bicep either.

    hate to burst your bubble but the #1 reason pros are so big is because of genetics...

    you can talk of roids and nutrition all you want; if you dont have the genetics they have; you will NEVER EVER EVER even come CLOSE to getting that big

    Hate to burst your bubble but....


    Please explain how genetics plays a role in in breaking genetic limits because thats what gear does.

    The reason they are using gear (several grams per week) is because they are breaking the limits of their own genetics. Once past that point your natural genetics no longer play a role in how big you are. Once they go off, they shrink just like everyone else. So sorry, there are plenty of guys as big as the pro's withouth the genetics. The role genetics plays is more proportion than anything. Just look at the difference bewteen Coleman and Ruhl. Both are huge, both use enormouse amounts of gear but Coleman blows him away because of proportion, not size.

    Both Arnold and Coleman have great genetics. One is using about 4 grams of gear per week not to mention GH/Slin/IGF-1 and the other is using a couple dbol and some primo. One is 280 while the other is 245. There is your difference. Both have great genetics but both are worlds apart in the amounts of type of gear they are using. Sorry, genetics won't make anyone 280 and 4%bf, only grams of gear will do that.

    Wouldn't genetics be something along the lines of having a headstart on the restr and using AS just passes that?

    So in the long run a guy who has normal genes uses gear and someone with above normal genes uses gear on the same workouts etc. Wouldn't the guy with better genes still come out on top?

    Did you Craig Titus was a skinny puke who weighed 140 when he started getting serious about lifting. Genetics certainly do help, but they are not a limiting factor

    Lee Preist does have the greatest biceps. However, I think when a lot of people see his pictures, they don't realize how freaking short his arms are. I've seen them in person..he is very, very short.

    Arnold had great biceps but his tris and forearms suck..Just look at that pic posted above. Forearms are lagging behind big time. Just my opinion.

    so you're saying I could be 250lbs at ~6% bodyfat if I run enough gear... sorry dude i wont believe that... i really thought you understood this bobo since i've seen your pics of how small you were back in the day... just to let you know, i was a good bit smaller; especially in bone structure...
    these are the genetics I speak of.. 4" wrists and 5.5" ankles? i was 6'1 130lbs and i had a little bit of muscle in my legs from playing soccer... so if i really had sat around and done absolutely nothing i would have been around 120-125

    genetics determine your natural limit and the hazy limit when using steroids

    maybe i've missed something completely here, did some new study come out that I missed? i'm serious here and not trying to be a jackass; but from all the threads and articles i've read here over the years and at other respected boards; its that genetics plays a role in the mass you can put on; natural or not

    i've read the other thread; thx for the headsup... i guess i'm just missing something here; i'm probably the most ectomorphic person on this board; if you want to post skinny pics i will throw down and beat all of you... i know my bones will not handle 80-100lbs of muscle mass; my skeletal frame will increase in size, but not that much

    That's why you need IGF-1 bro!! It makes everything grow! Just kiddin' I hear you, a friend and sometime workout partner of mine is built like you. 6'4 135lbs and works very hard just to stay at that weight. 100% ecto. I would say that a copious amount of gear used in conjunction with a proper diet would surely pack on some serious lbs, but he'll never be a massive freak.

    I think that if you ate enough and used enough gear, you could definately hit 200+ lbs ripped. But, like you said, your bones and joints might not be able to take the stress of that much of an increase in mass and strength in such a short amount of time.

    Both Arnold and Coleman have great genetics. One is using about 4 grams of gear per week not to mention GH/Slin/IGF-1 and the other is using a couple dbol and some primo. One is 280 while the other is 245. There is your difference. Both have great genetics but both are worlds apart in the amounts of type of gear they are using. Sorry, genetics won't make anyone 280 and 4%bf, only grams of gear will do that.
    Imagine if Arnold was on the gear that the pro's use today!! I still say he has one of the best developed physiques of any bodybuilder...

    gene regulation is mainly controlled by hormones...and steroids are exogenous hormones.

    Genetics determine:

    Proportion
    How well you respond to different steroids
    How prone you are to negative side effects (your tolerance for higher doses)
    How quickly you build muscle naturally
    Your predisposition for losing fat
    Your ability to retain muscle while not on cycle


    No matter what you take, there is still a genetic factor. Take my roomate and I for example. If genetics played no role, then he and I could be the same size. However, he is an ectomorph and I'm endo/meso. I can build muscle just by mowing the lawn. He has trouble gaining any weight training heavy and eating 6000+ calories a day. He weighed 135 pounds 4 weeks ago. I put him on M1T 10mg ED and 4AD trans 600mg ED. He started with the 4AD first, then after a week on it, he added the M1t to the mix for 2 weeks. He gained ....... 2 pounds. Sure he had some body recomp as well, but not much weight gained at all, and M1T is powerful stuff; everyone will agree.

    Then there's me. On M1,4ADDiol, 1-Test trans, and 1,4andro I gained 27 pounds in 4 weeks. 25 of those pounds were gained the first 3.

    You're telling me that genetics aren't a factor?!

    Excellent post Null. Genetics are the #1 factor (it's what we are). I don't see how people can dispute this? By saying this I do not mean that if someone works very hard they can't attain a great physique but with gear or not some people just will not go as far, this along with asesthetics. The Endo/Meso vs. Ecto is a prime example.

    And yes, I am aware I am a newbie here.

    Exactly.


    And Bean, you don't have to believe anything if you don't want. Thats ashame that is the attitude you take. Genetics play a role up to your natural limit, after that when you use gear and the excessive amounts that pro's use today, you break genetic limits. Its that simple. So instead of stating that genetics are the determining factor, at least understand how genetics play the role.

    I just love how people state how genetics play such a role but if you ask them to explain why, they have no clue. Its called hormones. And that is not directed at you or trying to be a wise ass. Its just I see the same complaint and arguement everyone on these boards. Its mainly from people who eat like ****, and use way too much gear.
