Hello all,
I was just wandering about how important genetics are. In competitions such as the Worlds Strongest Man, most of the hulks there have a genetic advantage, such as size or natural strength. Just how important are genetics, though? Janne Virtanen claims to have no genetic background of strength, other than his size. Honesty, though, how many of us average weight lifters are going to grow up to be the next Svend Karlsen or Mark Meuhr? Can ANYBODY be the "Worlds Strongest Man", or do you need a genetic background of strength and size?
