But how do we define “good” or “bad” genetics, and how much does it affect a lifter’s starting physique, and how they progress from weight training?
In this video, we’ll discuss practical ways to assess if you have good or bad genetics.
First, let’s be clear that the scientific community doesn’t fully understand human genetics. How specific genes influence muscle and strength gains from resistance training is a topic of ongoing research. There currently isn’t enough data for us to draw hard conclusions.
The points in this video will familiarize you with how lifters respond to weight training and how genetics plays a role. By the end of this video, you’ll have a good idea of whether or not you have good or not so good genetics for muscle building.
