What exactly constitutes good genetics vs bad genetics?
I was talking about this topic with a buddy and thought it was interesting. I don’t like the terms “endo” and “ecto” but we all know people who have an easier time gaining muscle than others. Or guys who have an easier time getting/staying leaner than others. Both of which are equally important and opposing factors in “good genetics.”
We also discussed the possibility of people with “better genetics” naturally producing 3 to 4 times the amount of Testosterone as someone who may have “crappy genetics.” Since the normal range can vary anywhere from 300-1200 for naturally produced test it leaves a very large potential gap. Is that a major factor in determining good vs bad genetics?
Bone size, frame, insertions, muscle bellies and natural strength levels are obviously big time factors but I was interested in hopefully getting a good discussion going about what everyone thinks of when they hear “good genetics” and what criteria they when applying that term towards themselves and other lifters.
I also am really fascinated by the natural test production scenario. I was unable to locate information on the topic but honest didn’t search much.
