Does Muscle equal knowledge? Does the amount of muscle a person has reflect what they actually know about training, or nutrition, or other topics people may care about?
This vid examines that topic!

    I agree with the genetics difference and will provide a great example. My younger(10 years) brother and I both trained together for years using heavy raw powerlifting routines and exercises. My physique was very muscular and looked like a bodybuilder, his was taller, narrower shoulders, wider hips, less size or muscularity. His lifts were not far below mine and his dead lift exceeded mine. Many people who met him didn’t even know he trained.
    Same diet, same routine, same parents= completely different physiques.
    Throw drugs and different parents into the mix and it’s easy to see why there it can be very difficult to spot an expert from a genetic or drug freak.

    I see everyday where I work as a personal trainer. I am 54 and have 17yrs of experience in fitness, but look nothing like the guys who are half my age with better genetics.
    I have to work harder than the younger trainers to gain clients. Because we live in I want it now society, the tendency is to gravitate towards the beefier trainers thinking osmosis will create more muscle.

    It doesn’t only come down to size but “profile”. I read and study everyday in so may areas of fitness and in life ( i especialy love Monicas articles that i know are researched and come from her, who i consider a highly trusted and credible source). I am a qualified Personal Trainer but family and friends seem to roll their eyes when I mention anything to educate or help them yet they will see TV PT ‘s or well know celebrities ( like Dr Oz or the biggest loser trainers) ans take evrythingbthey do or say as gospel truth.
    I am appalled by some things I see and hear from people like this but they get much more credability and respect for reasons other than their knowledge. It all comes down to listening to what others say and then finding what’s true for you, or what works for you or doing your own research and finding credible sources backed by more than just their so called “status”.

    Mike and Ray Mentzer have been dead for several years. Hope you didn’t run into them recently!
