Check out Arnold in his prime below and his son Joseph, age 21. The resemblance is uncanny. Are genetics important in bodybuilding? Absolutely, as is the case in most sports.
Could Joseph attain his father’s ultimate bodybuilding prowess? Possibly. He’d have an easier time of it than either of us, that’s for sure. Look at Joseph’s chest structure, long biceps, abs—and, of course, that jawline.
But even if Arnold is not your father (tip: 23 and Me DNA test), you can still achieve incredible bodybuilding progress. Steve is the perfect example. His genetics were more suited for marathon running than bodybuilding, but with persistence and full-range training (we’ll explain that in a moment), he succeeded in building plenty of jaw-dropping muscle…
To max out your genetic potential for eye-popping muscle mass as quickly as possible, you should use full-range training for each muscle—that is, Positions of Flexion. For example, one of the POF triceps mass programs is:
Midrange: Lying extensions
Stretch: Overhead extensions
Notice how those three exercises each train a different triceps position: over the chest, overhead, and down next to the body. And that program not only trains the target muscle through its full range of motion, it also attacks the 3 key hypertrophy triggers, according to Brad Schoenfeld, Ph.D.:
1) Mechanical tension (with heavier training: midrange)
2) Muscle damage (via microtears in the fibers: stretch)
3) Metabolic stress (by blocking blood flow—during sufficient tension time—for cell swelling: contracted)
That explains why POF is so powerful as the ultimate mass-building protocol, and…
That’s why almost all of our programs at our X-Shop are infused with POF for every muscle—either all positions at one workout or split-positions training.
If you want the main Position-of-Flexion mass manual, which shows you full-range POF workouts for every body part along with complete hypertrophy programs, get 3D Muscle Building.
POF worked extremely well for Steve—and also for Jonathan throughout his mass-training career. Here is the evolution of his physique using POF…
Till next time, train hard—and smart—for BIG results.
