    Do asians have bad genetics?

    Hi, this is just a simple question I've been asking myself over quite a while and Im not sure what the answer could be.
    About me:
    Currently 19 years old, freshman in college at 11-12% body fat and 182lbs.
    I started lifting at 15 years old (freshmen in high school)
    Lifting for 5 years.

    Log:
    15 years old: Benched 175, Squatted 250
    16: Benched 195, Squatted 275? not sure
    17:Benched 225, stopped squatting. Didn't lift for about 4 months due to dislocated elbow
    18:benched 255, didnt squat, just did leg presses.
    Current: At age 19 I started squatting and deadlifting. Bench 275, Squat 315, Deadlift 340ish.
    Yes I know my squat and deadlift is fairly weak compare to my bench but I started PROPERLY lifting on my 5th year.

    From age 15 to 18, my workout on a weekly basis was very inconsistent as i lifted 3-5 days each week differently.
    I also played football and track so I just followed the coaches instructions.

    The question is, do asians have bad genetics or am I just not working hard enough?
    On my 5th year, when I really focused on these heavy compound movements, I have been gaining insane size and a lot of stretch marks. I really didn't expect to grow this much in my first year of college, 5th year of lifting(probably because I didn't know much about lifting)



    My arm size is around 16.3 at 182lbs, 11-12% bodyfat, and yes I train legs twice a week.

    I have seen white/black people gain more muscle mass than me in like 2-3 years.

    Any opinions?

    I work out 5 days a week, constant and heavy.
    Eat fairly healthy, around 2800calories a day to maintain my body.
    Thanks for all the tips ^^

    What a racist!!!...lol just kidding

    Did the samurai have bad genetics? Did Bruce Lee had bad genetics? Don't categorize yourself, according to me, genetics play a little role in the world of the average jo, unless you are planning competitive stuff, your genetics should be the last thing to worry about.

    Also saw you stopped squatting?! If you want your bench to go up, you need your squat to go up.

    No it doesn't ---- I use to think the same way but it has nothing to do with your bench performance. I've recently been increasing in my bench HUGELY.....like in large numbers and I don't train legs as hard/1x a week. However those who do squat 2x a week can experience a massive increase in your bench too ---- this is only due to the weight gain you get from squatting.

    It's not your genetics. You just were training inconsistently before and that held you back.
    You can't help the hopeless.

    I'm mostly East Asian. My experience hasn't been anything like yours. on my first 9 months of consistent training, I went from not being able to bench 2 plates to repping 3 plates for 4 reps, age 19. Most people in general, don't train and most asians aren't into athletics or sports. Not because of genetics, but because of culture. Personally I notice that most asians have a quick metabolism. When I first got consistent I was eating around 1000 grams of carbs a day from food alone. Even with that I was weighing around 220-230 and couldn't get heavier. Legs, where just naturally big. Also I calf grew very easily. The thing about most blacks, isn't that they are bigger or respond better. But that they have rounder muscle bellies and they don't have tendons.
