how much do genetics play a part in body building?
ive seen people mention a lot on here and other forums about genetics playing a huge part in body building, what do you think? do they? or do they not?
my OH says i have genetically gifted calves and biceps, calves of 19-20 inches and biceps of 17 inches, i have a large frame/bone structure, my wrists are just over 7 inches
what do you think? have your genetics helped you in your quest for a body building physique or have you had to work damn hard to get where you are?
im thinking it is right about the genetics but that you also have to work damn hard to where you want to want to be
i owe my calves to having 2 dislocating knees since 9 years old and doing about 15 years of physio which included calf raises not of reps but of minutes, i used to stop at 20 reps and the physio said to me 'why are you stopping' and said because ive done my reps, she said who said you are doing reps, you have to do minutes on calves not reps
i used to do 5 mins 3 times a day, 5 days a week, just body weight raises
