    I'm wondering is there a limit to how big my muscles can get naturally.

    Is there a genetic limit to how big I can get naturally.

    I rep 265 on flat bench. My arms are 16" in diameter and my chest is 43" in diameter.

    I have been working out since Sept. 2001 very religiously. I have tried many diets and many workouts as well as supplements. Nothing seems to change anything.

    Increased calories change bodyweight.

    Yes of course there is a limit to how big you can get naturally, otherwise steroids would have zero purpose in bodybuilding or powerlifting. We are human beings, not gods.

    you have a LOT of time to grow naturally. have you been counting calories while doing all of these diets ?
