^^ You seriously can't see the size difference in the VM and VL? It's most obvious in any shot with his right leg forward.
I actually used to like Jay's physique but it has gone backwards for the last few years (even when he won).
his legs are small becaause he has no muscle cells up past half of his leg..that the reason right there..some people think bb is partly genetic....I think it 99 percent genetic..or everybody would look almost like Ronnie.
It is quite clear that his right leg has either had an injury or his leading leg has been receiving more stimulation and become dominant and he hasn't fixed this with heavy compound single leg work. You don't get magic differences between limbs, the body will even lose size/strength off dominant limbs/sides of the body in order to maintain a level of equilateral homeostasis. It is also why single leg injuries are often prescribed training for the oposite limb to stop losses to the injured limb. :coolguy:
As for the genetics; I'm yet to hear of anyone that becomes huge without having had to work and eat. Even the freaks with myostatin annomolies still have to eat and work/train/lift. So how the hell does it all come down to genetics? Great way to disregard all the hard work, correct nutrition, athletic ability and drive, commitment, and preseverance.
And no, not everyone would look like Ronnie, because not everyone wants to.
i agree with most of your post. but napolonater is right too. the vastus lateralus just does not insert as high up on his leg as his left one does. though i'm sure jay could help this problem with single leg work, it will never look as full or thick as the left and that is purely genetic. even in his earlier days you could see a little difference, and it has worsened over time.
^^ I'm not sure about the insertion, you'd have to see him in real life to make sure. But yes that wouldn't help and would create a natural imbalance. So I see your point. I'm sure we all have small differences between sides/limbs that may be visually noticeable, but his is quite pronounced and is more than just genetics.
if it was a minor insertion difference yes. but this is as clear as day and i think the pictures show this pretty well. maybe it's a nerve problem that is causing such a significant size difference. but everything being equal, that right leg will always be a little smaller. it's NEVER been as striated or as large as the other, and this is speaking only of the vastus lateralus.Quote
agreed. though i think it is more genetic than anything else. even if it is a nerve issue coupled with the smaller inserting vastus lateralus, i would still personally put most of the blame anyways on a genetic predisposition for such a scenario. someone like jay does not train particularily hard or heavy (example: ronnie's injuries are likely due to the way he trained, very heavy. speculation i know, but it is logical) and some people are more predisposed to getting something like a pinched nerve and this is largely genetic.Quote
