    IFBB pros starting gear very young

    Hey guys. Ive read in many places that todays top pros starting juicing at 16, 17, and even as young as 15. Examples of these are Arnold, Lee Priest, and Jay Cutler who holds the current Mr.Olympia title. If juicing too young takes away from your overall potential to get HUGE, then how do these guys end up getting so big?

    agreed. they get groomed by pros at a young age when they see the genetic potential.

    but thats a different life.... they have a full time lifting job during high school. they prolly get home schooled. and have a guy over them 24/7 keeping them on strict diets and gear regimens.

    if they dont make anything outa themselves than it was all wasted.

    its still a gamble....

    7 billion people on this earth and the public knows less than 20 figures in bb....

    I'd have to agree that genetics is the trump card, in all cases.

    My first test-only cycle was around 19 years old.

    At 20 yrs old I stacked Anadrol with Test and Deca. Wow, wow and once again - wow. However, I wasn't ready for the ridiculous transformation that occurred. Nothing to control the water weight gain, No AI, No PCT = No fun when I came crashing down off that cycle. 6 weeks of being blown up only to deflate and have libido probs afterwards. Finally recovered and cycled more responsibly since.
    Good genetics helped me but we were all naive and couldnt' care less about proper beginner cycles, PCT, etc.

    yeah thats true. no so sure about genetics though. check this out. First picure is Kevin Levrone off of gear. Second picture is Kevin Levrone on gear. Im not saying genetics don't play a part in the game, but being a walking drug store sure helps

    thats not the question on this post. Im always hear everyone saying that if you start gear when your 16/17 you will severly limit your potential to grow. Lee Priest started when he was 16, and continued to grow throughout his career. Hence, starting gear at age 16 DID NOT limit his results. If we all had the access and the money to get all the gear that the pros use, we may not be as big but we would come pretty fucking close, or at least i know i could.

    The growth refers to height, not muscle mass. And look at Lee Priest, he is only 5'4". That is extremely short in my book.

    let me clear up what i said and meant.
    no amount of gear will change ur genetics.
    to be a mr universe you need a wide frame, the ability to build muscle, have a good amount of fast twitch cells, have a great bone density (to support the amount of weight lifted), great joints and an abdominal wall that isnt flawed in anyway (a hernia can really screw u up, i had a bad one that busted out into my nut sack while benching 425lbs.)

    having a large frame helps...

    being tall helps.

    its all about genetics.

    they all need to be in order to be a mr universe. and the percentage of people with all the right criteria are very few.
