When it comes to physical aesthetics and performance, how much is down to 'having good genes' and how much is simply a matter of working hard?


This week we're looking closely at the role of each, and to what extent each can change or be changed. Helping us tackle this one is Powerlifter Bill Piche, joined by Personal Trainer (and Strength Athlete) Josh Hewett. Fantastic.
