Duchaine spoke about this in Iron Man. He stated that although he thought nutrition is very important, he did notice that many men in prison get big with shitty food and little access to drugs.
You can eat more than three meals in jail. Snacks are available. Staying consistent with a training and nutrition program, even if it is sub-optimal will take you places farther than someone with an optimal plan but does not stay consistent or train with any purpose or effort.
I’d also like to address the fact, without causing a stir here, that a large percentage of our prison population is black. And as Dogcrap Dante pointed out and observed, many black bodybuilders grow off of the goofiest, lame routines and crumby diets. Flex Wheeler and Paul Dillet are examples. In junior high and high school I had quite a few black classmates and some of these guys were quite thick by the ages of even 14 to 17. This is not to denigrate or jock-grab blacks, its just an observation. Flex Wheeler used to diet for three weeks for a show, eating McDonald’s and BK up until then.
Well you beat me to it, but that was exactly what i was gonna say. It is an undeniable fact that Black people have much better genes for muscle building than White people. (Although I think White people have better genes for pure strength) Prisoners are not that huge in countries like Germany or Finland, where the majority is White.
After all, look at a bodybuilding expo, like at the Olympia and the Arnold, and you will see 2 types of males. One is the big (pro) bodybuilder, who is usually Black. The other is the wanna-be fan (and i don’t mean that in a derogatory way), who is usually White. Genetics folks, genetics…[/quote]
Bullshit! where are the studies to prove it?
All my many black friends bar one are skinny guys. The exception being my best friend (a Ghanian) who is very thick, but he consumes tons of meat, potatoes, fish and malt drinks.
And he plays a lot of sport on top of working manual jobs.
