  1. How do you know if you have good genetics?


    This may sound like a silly question "How do you know if you have good genetics?". But how do you know? What indicators to look for?


  2. Do you mean in terms of athletic performance or physic or chances of getting a disease?...

  3. Are you naturally good at most sports you play? Do you progress faster than those around you? Do you excel at most things you do physically?

    Also, how do your family members rank at the above? Do you have several athletes in your family? Bonus points if you do on both sides.

    It's fairly intuitive if you think about it. You should be able to spot the indicators.

  4. You do know your family right?

    Sorry for being so vaugue. I mean good genetics as in ability to quickly gain muscles as in bodybuilding. I hear the term nothing beats genetics often but never explained on what good genetics mean.

    lol, I do know my family (i think). I wasn't asking for me as I know I DO NOT HAVE ANYTHING CLOSE TO GOOD GENETICS. I was just curious to hear what others had to say.

  7. It's obvious when you see it. Like I said, if someone is built like a tank and doesn't work out or only does pushups...these types can start working out and explode. My buddy was always ripped/muscular and I always tried to get him to workout, but he never really had an interest. There was about a month and a half or two time period when I got him to workout, and he put on 30 lbs..no kidding! He took NO supplements..not even creatine! It was not bloat and he still had a ripped six pack with all the weight he added. Unfortunately he gave up after that and never goes to the gym. He maintained that new muscle for ever by sitting on the couch and going fishing. Every once in a while he'll do a few pushups, and that's all it takes him to put the muscle back on. It's rare that he even does pushups however. His dad is in his late 60's and benches like 350 lbs lol, so id say some premium dna is at work here. Ya im a little jealous haha..

  8. Best way is to look at your family history, relatives, etc. I've talked to my dad about his weight In high School. Talked to my uncle and a few other relatives. All scrawny as **** in high school not very much muscle mass and no athletes in my family that's for sure. My genetics ****ing suck

  9. my little brother stays a lean 210lbs ish and I think is 6'1 or so year round and lifts on average less than once a week I think. he also has thick legs and decent shoulders, etc. If he truly lifted for hypertrophy he'd be huge.

    I'm 5'9 and hang out at about 179lbs when 8-10% bodyfat. I'm thicker than him in some ways, but i bust my ass for it and eat clean every single day. genetically he is a quite gifted. I'm not upset about my genetics, but he wins. lol

  10. Maybe natural testosterone above the normal range would mean good/great genetics.

  16. Easy........

    Do things the right way and if you don't get solid results within the first year then you have bad genetics.

    For example lets use weight loss as an example. Person is obese and goes to the gym , works with trainers, eats as healthy as they can. Never loses weight or really struggles with weight loss. That person's bad genetics are preventing them from getting the results they want to.

    Same thing can be said for weight lifting or bodybuilding. If you are lifting, eating right, and going to the gym and do not get solid results then your genetics are bad when it comes to "Gains."

    You have to take a positive with a negative. Say you lose weight easily but find it hard to bulk. Find a medium and focus on that. Maybe you are a tall person who has to come to the realization that you will more than likely always have a nice lean physique with lower body fat. Work on toning your muscles, adding definition, and going for that look. Nothing wrong with it at all. Everyone is different! Work to your strengths that god has given you.

  17. Good genetics, bad genetics... Fcuk yo sh*t! Don't fcukin let it define you or discourage you from your goals. Only stupid a** people will use it as an excuse to give up.
    If I live every moment believing, then the chaos in my heart will be a beautiful thing.-
    I am in love, but not in love with someone or something, I am in love with my life. And for the first time, in a long time, everything is inspiring.-

    Yes but a person must be realistic also. You can't compare yourself to anyone else. I'll tell you another thing, if you think you are going to be an IFBB Pro without lots of gear you are a moron. Im talking about having sponsors who are giving you $50,000 a year to invest into yourself. You gotta travel, train, eat tons of food and prepare your own meals, take gear/supplements, medical bills, hotels, gas, car maintenance. What if you are on the road and your car breaks down? What do you do? Better have the money or you are not going to be able to go to the gym or the store. Taking gear? Ran out of it? Better have the money to get some more from your doctor because guess what? Your body doesn't produce it naturally anymore and never will again. Say hello to TRP for the rest of your life. Welcome to bodybuilding.

  20. @LovingtoLift, so how long have you been a professional bodybuilder?

    Never claimed to be but if you deny IFBB Pros use roids and receive lots of money from sponsors you are living on another planet.

    wouldn't a realist be prepared?

    you know how long your cycle is, so its bought in advanced
    since everyone is different, how much gear do you really need? what are you telling me one needs 15,20,25 or 30 k worth of gear? LMAO
    if your car breaks down, there is a bus, cab or friend- might want to bike for cardio. there are other ways
    there are also local and state shows that you can compete in.
    albeit 50 k isn't a ton of money, but if you can plan your cycle, plan your macros, and plan your routine, you sure as shyt can plan a budget

    I get the questions, but the everyone of your answers is on the fail/neg side-

    reality isn't the problem, those who cant adjust are

    I was speaking of a person who actually gets to the top level. The best of the best.

    Also what about the millions of people who have aspirations of getting their pro card? You better have a good sponsor who is backing you with lots of money. Just like any sport. Look at Tennis players or golfers. They go to mini tour events in Florida, pay for entry fees, get their clubs worked on, drive all over the state to tournaments, stay in hotels, work with swing coaches. Tens of thousands of dollars to back them and they aren't even pro's yet on the PGA Tour. They are just out there doing their best, grinding away to see if they are good enough to make a living. Do you know what the average PGA Tour player spends a year investing into their game once they make it to the big show? Travel, hotels, swing coaches, entry fees? Over $100,000 a year. Bodybuilding isn't cheap. A good trainer can command 100 dollars or more per session. Then you gotta pay your diet coach and so forth. I can't imagine its very affordable unless you have a great sponsor especially the higher the level you compete at.
