          His "lifestyle" doesn't explain why he's like that and other people aren't. There's plenty of people with his "lifestyle" who don't get that strong. It's genetics.

          Always has been. That's why you do what you're good at, retard.

          Yeah, and not being good at something which you'd like to be good at can be demoralizing.

            If you trained like him maybe you wouldn't hit 180kg. But you'd probably hit at least 3 plates.

            He's also a literal bench specialist who doesn't squat... (white shirt) It's a lot easier to hit 4 plates at 150 lbs if all you do is train bench.

            some people are just genetically engineered for one lift, but probably not for other lifts.
            Cailer Woolam for example is one of strongest deadlifters due to his long arms, but that also makes him a relatively weak bencher

          He built 21" arms natural and he says it's not genetics, what a load of shit. 99% of naturals can barely make it to 16" lean arms.
          His argument is that when he was prepubescent 10 year old his arms were small. Well no shit, you literally had no testosterone.
          When puberty kicked in and his test skyrocketed, his big arms genetics were able to be expressed via lifting weights. Where are all the other naturals with 21" arms if it's not genetics?
          Also, he had a supplement store so of course he won't mention genetics. Not good for business.

        I would trade bench for OHP and hypers are a must if you don't deadlift or clean. That being said a 1h focused full body is 90% as effective as a 2.5h of fucking around at the gym on a split finding every machine that targets a specific muscle for a lot less time.

            In my first post I said train for 20 years, not because most people will quit (they will) but because you will get stuck so many times and you will try everything under the sun to progress. From benching once every two weeks to benching 6 times a week, from gaining 5kg in a month to gaining 2kg a year.
            OP is an example who responds very well to the bench.
            On the other end of the spectrum you have someone like Matt Wenning who benches over 600 and couldn't bench 3 times a week for 12 weeks without getting all beat up.

          Ronnie has more of a skeleton and thus more of a frame to put muscle on than I will ever have. He does not have magic cope receptors that I can't develop too if I scream like a maniac and squat several hundred lbs.

            People actually believe this.

              Your muscle will adapt to stress. You just don't stress it.

              More like 140. Midwits can't tell the difference.

    Genetic Determinism is completely irrational. Read a biology book you retards.

    First and foremost, pro bodybuilders (or athletes in general) have
    better genetics than the rest of us. They are the genetic elite. This isn't some type of personal
    grouse or whine, simply a statement of fact and reality. If you had their genetics, you wouldn't be
    reading this book.
    If you look at pro bodybuilders in their early stages, they are still typically leaner and
    bigger than the normal individual. From a physiological standpoint, they probably have higher
    than average testosterone levels and don't overproduce cortisol. Thyroid levels are probably
    optimal or close to it, helping to naturally optimize metabolic rate, fat burning and protein
    synthesis.
    They have good skeletal muscle insulin sensitivity and tend to put calories into muscle
    more effectively (i.e. they partition calories towards muscle instead of fat). They probably have
    fewer fat cells than most people and that fat is evenly distributed (although even female pros
    have problems with lower bodyfat). When they diet, they don't have as many problems with
    metabolic slowdown. Their evenly distributed fat comes off easily and, since they can use fatty
    acids easily for fuel, they don't lose as much muscle when they diet. All of these factors
    contribute to their success.

      We can contrast that to the average individual who could have any number of potential
      metabolic defects that prevents them from reaching their desired goals. Testosterone might be
      on the low side of normal, cortisol production is elevated, thyroid or nervous system output may
      be low (meaning a lower than optimal metabolic rate). Skeletal muscle insulin sensitivity is low
      which means that excess calories get pushed towards fat cells more effectively. When these folks
      diet, the brain tends to overreact, lowering metabolic rate (which probably wasn't optimal to
      begin with). Fat loss slows to a crawl. Difficulties mobilizing bodyfat, along with problems with
      testosterone and cortisol, lead to increased muscle loss. I could keep going but you get the idea.
      I'm not just telling you this to depress you; consider it more of a reality check to make you
      aware of what is and isn't possible. My point is that pro bodybuilders (hell, pro athletes of any
      sort) are the genetic elite. You are not like them and they have advantages naturally that you
      don't. Most importantly, trying to mimic what they do, or expecting their results, can only lead
      you down an endless path of frustration

      So much cope. Jesus Christ. When you live like them you will be like them. Yes, physiologically. The only thing you can't have is different attachment points or a different sized skeletal system.

          Yeah, you get as much muscle as your frame can hold. Or you make shit up about molecular gains goblins and don't get shit. I'm doing the former.
