I've read the research but I havent figured out exactly what my natural potential is because i honestly don't really care.


Keep it that way and it will take you far my friend, don't let any person or research place limits on you!

just wondering - according to research has anyone ever reached their natural potential? is it even physically possible? or is it something that you have to constantly work for and never totally reach, like a dog chasing its own tail?

Anythings possible, look at the genetics out there, Rico's legs belong in the IFBB, as do Cordovas arms and shoulders. They don't even bat an eye to limits and "potential" just outworking everyone else.
These guys, these pros, as humble as they are, LOOK for people to waste time on research imposing limits man, KEEP PUSHING!

And this is where I have grown as a young competitor, humbleness. Mine right now is headed out the window with this thread, so I am done here.

Incorrect. Nothing could be further from the truth, and from reality.

Very few reach limits. It's a goal, not a limitation. 99.9% of natural bodybuilders won't hit their potentials. One only needs to analyze history to see this is the truth. Potential maxes are not only championship level, these maxes are on par with the greatest natural bodybuilders of all time.

If they reach their limits they will be as big as the greatest natural champions to ever walk the earth. If you even come close to your potential you will be champion material. Heck 10 pounds from potential will win most shows if conditioning is there.

These numbers are based on 300 natural champions over the last 60 years. These are the champions.

Again, you are commenting without studying the research. There is nothing wrong with wanting to succeed, but to comment that those who understand and respect limits will never be champions to me is very disappointing.

I work with champions, and none of them surpass these projections.

I strongly disagree with your comments. People who aim for these numbers will be the champions.

The only ones right around their potentials are the genetic elites. The champions.

If they are beat it's by only a very small hair...and not by pounds and pounds. Not a single one of these champions has bested their potentials by a noteworthy amount.

The formula is so accurate that is predicted most champions max weight within 0.1 pounds.

Check out the article D:

Let me break this down as simply as possible:

--300 natural champions from the last 60 years were analyzed.
--These lifters are the genetic gold standard.
--From this extensive study, an incredibly accurate formula was derived that can provide natural lifters with a genetic ceiling to shoot for.

No natural champion that I know of has exceeded their potentials by more than an extremely trivial amount of weight.

Over the last 60 years there has been NO improvement in how much muscle naturals are capable of carrying.

Natural potential is not a function of performance, meaning that it can't be changed by hard work. The best naturals of all time have tried and failed. Natural potential is a function of physiology, and no amount of performance/training can alter this reality.

Whether you want to choose to ignore this information is your choice. Some condemn it as limiting. It is not presented as such. It is meant to provide a goal to shoot for. If you achieve this goal you will be one of the greatest naturals of all time.

How bad would it suck to be stuck with physiques like these?
