    How could I tell if I reached my genetic potential yet? I’ve been training for at least 6 years; however, at the start I wasn’t really that consistent and I never paid attention to what I was eating up till like a year ago when I started focusing a lot more on my diet and training. Also, I’ve dealt with some severe elbow tendinitis for around 2 years (2017 to 2019) then towards the end of 2019, my elbows system to get better but all this pandemic started, the gyms closed so I’ve only just gotten back into training in 2021. So do you think I can still gain a decent amount of muscle (naturally) this year if I keep training and eating properly ? And would you recommend a big calorie surplus or just a slight surplus like 200 calories?

    Consistency is the key for growth you still have so much time to put on muscle if you’re tracking your progression and with good food implementation and good recovery, the best thing to do its to maingain adding 20% plus calories is the best tou can go with, just for an advice urz progression will take time just be patient and do the work.

    Thanks man! Consistency is king for sure! Personally I just wasn’t sure if I can still make decent progress naturally or if I’m already close to my genetic potential

    Thanks a lot for your reply Joe! I’m currently 23 years old, and honestly up till like 5 months ago, my diet and training haven’t really been on point. I tried to eat properly and focus on my training once I fully recovered from my elbow injuries at the start of 2020, but the pandemic came, the gyms closed so I stopped training and throughout the year I lost a lot of mass. But as I said, I started giving it my all and right now I’m happy with the progress because I feel like I’m learning more about nutrition And training too; compared to a few years ago when I was just training but my knowledge was limited. Also, a lot of people at the gym keep telling me that I have sick genetics just because I was lifting quite a lot of weight when I was younger. I was benching 150 kilos when I was like 17 yrs old, but that doesn’t really mean that my genetics are sick. Anyway, thanks again for your reply man

    Hey Joe just listened to your response here. Curious as to the name of the video you put out on recovery(here or on YouTube)?? Would love to watch that and start implementing.
