    Gene's and weight training

    I did a search on the subject and didn't find what I was looking for, if this question as been brought up in another thread sorry must of skipped over it.

    My father told me when he was around my age (16) he use to work out all the time with friends and he never really felt he got much stronger or gained any real mass. It wasn't till he turned 20 that he saw improvement.

    Now after years of learning random stuff from friends and family (better then nothing) in the ways of fighting I've sorta formed my own little defunked way of fighting. I've only recently decided that I might want to learn other things about Martial arts and start training seriously.

    Now getting to the question, My father says I'm bulit just like him when he was my age (5'8" 139 lbs) could he be wrong in the sense that I might not see much if any improvement if I start weight training because of my genetic's?



    For the record yes I'm a newb to these forums and martial arts in general. I've watched a few ufc matchs and like boxing when ever I can catch it on tv.

    1. How old are you?
    You won't be "full size" until your fun little puberty stage is done.


    Yes, genetics play a larger part. But so does training effectively and eating the right stuff.
    I point currently at diet and training right now as "culprits" for not growing much.

    Ok, I actually didn't have my glasses on when I read that. So....I'm an idiot.
    Well it really depends on your growth spurt period.

    Keep eating right and working out and gains will come.

    I was about 5' 5" till about 16/17. Then shot up to 5' 10". Around 18/19, hit 6 foot and weight like 210lbs. I didn't fill out till about 26.

    That's actually pretty weird, i thought i stopped growing about a year or two ago when i was 16/17 and i reached 5'11". During growth spurt I had "growing pains" in my knees and the past few weeks i've been experiencing similar pains. Now that I'm almost 19 I don't think i'm growing but that'd be pretty cool to gain another few inches :D

    I had a science teacher who told my class she went swimming when she was 16 and something in the water gave her double Ds!! Every time I went to class, it was like I was watching Baywatch. :)
