Talking in strictly clinic terms, Genetics do influence on building the body you wish, what means your body's whole characteristics and those come inherited in you by generations influence in your capability of increasing muscular mass, or losing body fat, or having more stamina, or being stronger,... everything or anything them.
However, Genetics do not determine completely your final body shape. If you can't change it in its programming, you will know it for taking it advantage or balancing it at level you're looking for, through diet, training, and a resting regime correctly designed and followed as much disciplined as you can.
It's probable you also need supplementation, but it only applies in case when clinically proven your body reports some deficit or scarce, and it's necessary running to the medicine for compensating there where it lacks. It's good to mention this extra puling has ever to be advised by a trustable medic or nutricionist.
But, how much do genetics play in your favor, or not? The first you must have in mind what your body's primary shape or biotype is, which turns into your first visible indicator... unless you want to have some lab tests, what will be ever much safer.
- If you trend to be thin, so you don't accumulate much fat body, and your muscular mass is few, then your biotype could be ectomorph.
- If you trend to get fat, accumulate many body fat (that must not be confused to muscular mass), your body could be endomorph.
- If you trend to have muscular mass not working out often, don't accumulate body fat (or you can undo it fastly), and your body shape ever keeps athletic features, your biotype could be mesomorph.
Depending on what your sport goals are, it would design a plan that works straight to your biotype. Generally Endomorphes and Ectomorphes will require a very special type of training, and their capability to reach the shape they look for, can take many months or years even. Despite, Mesomorphes could take few months to improve their shape, so target to body goal they're looking for. That's why you have to remember that it could be working for one individual not necessarily works to you.
In the other hand, if you're not Mesomorph, don't desperate or look for magic solutions neither. Patience, good humor sense, and discipline will have to be your constants.
And if you're Mesomorph, please don't be self-sufficient because one thing is having some comparative physical advantages compared to other people, but uncaring doesn't guarantee to keep fit.
Based upon this first tip and your body achievement objectives, your feeding and training plan will be designed. We can't give you here a formula for general using. Simply we recommend you to talk muchly to your trainer for doing the design and having some mechanism allowing to control the progress (usually body measuring, routines performance, your own motivation capability).
What indeed is common for every biotype is the resting time. Whatever your sport activity is, 8-10 hours of deep sleeping will you rcover and build the desired shape.
But if your lifestyle doesn't allow too many resting hours, you must work seriously on get disiplined through a schedule, that you'll follow enthusiastic, full of attitude.
