For myself personally, I always wondered why certain people were naturally stronger or had greater potential for muscle growth than others. We all know that genetics play a key role in building a physique but does you actually know the science behind it all? AsapScience always provide concise videos when answering viewers questions; to summarize it quickly, it all starts with a protein in our body called myostatin.
Our muscles are under strict control of this protein (myostatin) which determines how large a muscle can grow, this limit varies from person to person depending on their individual myostatin levels. However don’t be discouraged about this new found information or start using it as an excuse when you don’t see the gains you’re looking for straight away. Just continue to improve every time you’re in the gym and you’ll be surprised of the results.
