Default Don't Always Trust The Biggest Guy In Your Gym

Don't Always Trust The Biggest Guy In Your Gym

We've all heard this. In fact, I saw it today on the Interwebz. It was followed by something like...the biggest guy has no science backing his training. It's all genetics.

It got me thinking about how successful lifters tend to be placed into the "genetic elite" class. It also made me think about the fact that many tend to diminish the accomplishments of a successful lifter if they don't have theories and dogma and science to back their training.

This minimizes several aspects of the success equation - persistence, progression, and probably proper nutrition. Maybe the biggest/strongest guy in the gym can teach us more than we realize...

What say you. Thoughts on this?
