My take is this instead:

Starting early. And hard work, focus and dedication.

Genetics? Maybe they have played a small part. But IMO, too many people are too eager to put just about everything on that.


edit: Either way, what I can 100% agree on, is that's an amazing lift. Kudos!

I'm sure he has put in the blood sweat and tears to get where he is but at 17 years old how I wonder where he started out to be able to lift that much and still only weigh 146.

IMO genetics can be a huge factor! Of course hes worked his ass off to get that squat though. Proper leverages make a big difference in how much you can lift. As you can see from the video, he does a low bar squat and stays extremely upright. His torso is long and femurs short, which gives him amazing potential for the squat.

Look at that narrow stance on squat. Damn boy.

Yeah, I agree the genetic excuse gets over used in some circumstances. But I don't think one should disregard the genetic propensity to be strong/big/muscular/lean in any and all circumstances.
This kid is a freak.
What did he bench press?
