Wish You Were This Kid?

“Rare condition gives toddler super strength”

This kid is so lucky, he has serious potential. Once gene doping is mastered we can all be like this!

Wow, cool find! I really hope that kid capitalizes on his incredible fortunes in one way or another in the future.

I wouldn’t want to be him during a food shortage.

I guess we can finally blame genetics.

[/sarcasm]

I can just see him becoming a star in many sports to come.

This one seems good at the moment, there could be some unforeseen side effects of this genetic defect. Who knows how he will turn out.

Biotest had an old supp that was supposed to mimic this condition.

I wish they could bring it back.

It has been posted before.

The article is from May '07. I’d sure like to see an update on this kid.

This kid could deadlift a ton if he worked at it…

Imagine the sheer size of this dude if he’d abuse steroids and turn IFBB pro!

Excellent point. This kid’s going to be twice as bad as Arnold, lol. Hope his parents can steer him straight enough to keep him on a good track.

I’ll agree with that, how you learn things also seems to shape your life. But there is still no doubt for me that having this genetic advantage is ‘not good’. From day one this kid has a huge advantage over his peers and I don’t view that as bad thing.

Ultimately, his potential will still be limited by muscle length.

Having that condition would rock except I’m assuming he’d be eating more then phelps or mariusz by the time he’s 10.

That’s increddible but I do agree with Mick28 on how something that comes too easily isn’t truly valued and you don’t develop the discipline you usually would from training

Talk about the Alpha Male.

Isn’t that the same condition Flex had?

Wait, what happened to it?

Lets see the wheels.

Seriously.

I may be mistaken but I remember hearing that Biotest was worried people would try to use it to inhibit muscle degenerative diseases.

Which would have legal implications.

This is a vague memory though.

That and it didn’t work, lol.
