I have a friend who started training with me recently. He goes with me every other week or so for one fullbody workout.
This guy is the posterboy for genetic wildcard. Large biceps, extreme V taper, big shoulders, 6pack. However, he eats MAYBE twice a day, takes in VERY little protein. His training regimen typically consists of a shitload of push ups and sit ups before bed and a ton of DB curls.
Recently, he has started trying to give me advice. Advice I KNOW isnt sound, but its worked for him. My physique isnt anywhere near his, so its hard for me to give him sound advice, and have him respect me for it.
Is this a case where anything he does will work for him given his genetics? Or is he on to something with doing tons of pushups/situps/curls/french press every night?
I say screw genetics, he has them and thats great, if I have to work twice as hard to get the same result I will, but its hard to wonder if he may be doing something right...
