Hey guys I just turned 17 years old. I have been interested in bb since I was like 6 and now want to take it seriously
When I was 14.5 I broke my leg terribly and lost all motivation (cliche Ik) to do anything
I haven’t really worked out since besides wrestling for a couple weeks about a year ago
Here is my physique now
My question: does it look like I have above average or good genetics to bodybuild? I feel like I have maintained a pretty good physique for someone who’s basically been lying around all day for many years
I’d really appreciate your thoughts and questions if u have any
John, do yourself a favor and take down these shirtless photos of you as a minor before they haunt you in your adult life.
You find out if you have good genetics after a few years of training. You’re too young to know/be worried about that at this point. If bodybuilding interests you, chase after it. Not everyone gets to be the top of the top in stuff, but most of us have the talents necessary to enjoy things we enjoy.
Thanks for the comment man
I used to play sports but have had some things in my life preventing me from playing them
Also I plan to stay natural forever
So I hope I can at least look like a genuine natural bodybuilder if I train for like 5 years+
I didn’t look much different from you when I was 17. I competed at a fairly high level over three decades.
I started lifting weights at 19 and did fairly poorly on stage for 7 years. After that I looked more like a bodybuilder.
Yeah man definitely
I don’t think I’m anything special like someone who could be in the Olympia, I only have 19 clavicles I think Olympia level bodybuilders have like 25 on average
I just mean a couple levels down from that
I did my whole bodybuilding biography in the Bigger, Stronger, Leaner sub forum. I don’t know how to link it, but the title is “RT_Nomad, How Do You Train. You might be interested reading through it. There where many hurdles in my quest.
This would be on par with Olympia guys I believe. I have a feeling you mean delt to delt is 19" though. I’m fairly wide at about 21" delt to delt, I doubt my clavicle width is above 19". You can kinda tell in my avatar about how wide I am although it’s probably not the best picture for that.
Yeah my bad that’s what I mean,
Yeah 19 clavicles would be insane
So il prolly a little above average in terms of width for my height but I have a pretty narrow waist I’m which is good (about 29 inches)
