    How can you tell if you've...

    ...reached your genetic potential(size and strength)? I mean, does it become apparent after switching your workout around for the sake of "shocking" the muscles into growth but they still continue to stay as they are? I haven't come close to this yet (I hope) but I'm just curious if there are any telltale signs that the genetic wall is coming...

    That's kinda what I figured...

    I work with this jackass who is part of a five guy bet on who can gain the most size on his arms in two months, and this guy, being the hater he is, was actually trying to tell me that I have reached my potential already. Never mind the fact I have only been seriously training for six months, I'm 24 years old...does anyone honestly think I'll see my genetic potential anytime soon?
