    First I know I personally am not at my genetic potential. These questions are out of curiosity.

    How does one know when they have reached their genetic potential?

    What are the signs of reaching it?


    TIA

    I would say 2 years of solid smart training with no real gains to speak of. There is no way to tell where that will be in the proccess. Also size is much more closed from a natural genetic standpoint than is strength, so again it depends on the modality.

    Lyle estimates that an average, natural lifter can put on about 50lbs of lbm
