Is he cutting in that video? If not, how do people stay that damn lean while bulking? I mean, I’m sure it’s easier if you count calories and only eat a few hundred over maintenance, but I’d imagine that anybody trying to make gains just eats all they can. That’s what I do, at least.
I probably eat like 5-6k a day and I’m getting great results, but I’m nowhere near as lean as some of these guys that aren’t even cutting.
Also, does anybody know that guy’s measurements, or height/weight, at least?
That’s how it goes for guys with elite genetics. Not everyon can be a bodybuilder, it may suck hear that, but it’s absolutely true.
The combination of 99th percentile genetics, anabolics, hGH, and top level training and nutrition coaches separates the average guy’s hard work and this guys hard work.
ya genetics deff come into play, but i personally think that someone who has avg genetics or maybe a little above can still make it in the bodybuilder world he just has to put much more time and dedication in before he becomes that size than someone has has elite genetics like alex. So like maybe alex becomes pro at 25(just an example) it might take someone without those genetics till 35 before he looks like that.[/quote]
theres definately pro competitors who didnt have the best genetics growing up. some people have to work harder than others but no one is born looking like a bodybuilder, have you seen Pwrbar boy’s before pictures? he was a 130 pound skateboarder and now look at em.
and even if you dont have super-human genetics does that mean youre just going to quit? you could have the best BBing genetics in the world and never do shit w/ the sport or you could so-so genes and maybe not win the Olympia but that doesnt mean you cant be the buffest dude on the beach or the strongest guy at the gym.
