I don't think you understand that genetics play a gigantic role on where you are, and where you'll be. To put it in perspective, if I can bench 405 at a bodyweight of 245 lbs (which I can), and my buddy benches 540 at 200 lbs and we both train the exact same.. Guess who has the better genetics.
Another example. Hypothetically, if I was to go up to a guy in my gym who was ripped to shreds and ask him how he was so successful, and he replies that he adds some jump roping a couple times a week if he starts getting fat and starts eating a half gallon of ice cream.. Do you think that'll work for everyone else? Or does he just have extremely good genetics, burns at an incredible rate, and is just stupid lucky??
Additionally, if you look around at other people's journals, you'll see an extremely hard working forum
. But what you won't see is everyone seeing the fruits of that hard work on certain lifts. Instead, you'll see a small few in the mid 300's, and mostly everyone else in the mid to low 200's.. That's not to say they won't eventually get there because that's not my point. The point is this teenager ALREADY head and shoulders above a lot of others. I seriously doubt you could have an intellegent conversation about hypertrophy with him, but whatever he's doing is working. That's what flawed was talking about.
