How much do genetics account for? Honestly………a lot, but so do our decisions, our environment, our effort, our habits, intelligence, etc. Too many people blame their genetics for not getting in the shape they want to be in. It is always the people complaining about their genetics who are the ones not maximizing them. The truth is EVERYONE will be pleasantly surprised with their body if they maximized their genetics. You may just have to work harder than others, good, you’ll appreciate the effort it takes more. Then you’ll become proud of the hard work. The body will become your badge of hard work. Whatever you do don’t feel sorry for yourself because no one else will. It is, in fact, that negative attitude getting in your way…..not your genetics.
