Thanks again to everyone who watched and sent in questions for the discussion Gymchat 242 – The Role of Genetics in Aesthetics & Performance [with Powerlifter Bill Piche, joined by Personal Trainer (and Strength Athlete) Josh Hewett] – much appreciated. If you haven’t seen it yet (or simply want to go over a particular point again), here’s the entire video.
It was a great conversation. Josh and Bill discussed Bill’s fitness background, the different approaches to discussions around genetics, accessibility of information, understanding what’s possible (and likely), hard work vs genetics, use of ‘chemical enhancements‘, finding a way to improve, being ‘genetically gifted‘, competing at an elite level, treating physical inefficiencies as a challenge, short-term programs vs long-term results, genetic concerns vs effort, genetics & obesity, epigenetics; and a whole lot more. If you’re ready to Learn What’s Really Possible, make sure you watch this one.
There were several great resources noted during the discussion – all of which are well worth checking out. In particular :
As well as Bill‘s own site (superb resource):
- The incredible Cyberpump.com
