Excellent point by Chocolate Shatner. Genetics don't change that much in 30 years. Diet, training and competition has. Phone Post

CS, i don't think you really listened to my whole point. Proper training will get you as close to your potential as possible, but ultimately your potential is determined by your genetics. If Tank Aboot had put in the 10,000 hours of quality practice you were talking about at sprinting, he still wouldn't get anywhere near an olympic sprint event.

You also talk about large numbers of people fitting genetic profiles, and that's true, but it's not relevant. Just because someone has potential for something doesn't mean they will use it. But amongst those who train for certain events those with the genetic gifts suited for it will always rise to the top.

Also there has been an explosion of interest in perfecting technique of very basic human movements. Technique intensive activities - such as boxing or Judo - have had their techniques intensively studied and improved for generations. Activities such as running, swimming, jumping, lifting heavy things, etc, have only had any real study on improving their technique very recently. and this is reflected in improving records.

If the chances of injury are lowered when a a certain strength to bodyweight ratio is achieved would that be considered transfer? Phone Post
