    Default Genetic Potential

    I'm curious to see the different opinions on this. If you took a genetically gifted bodybuilder. What do you guys think is the maximum weight they could compete at without any drug use? For the sake of consistency we'll say they are 5' 11'' tall. Just write what you think without considering other responses.

    When I say compete think overall winner (good conditioning).

    My thoughts are around 220-230lbs. I think someone could get there but it would have to a number of things coming together.

    at 5'11, I'd say around 215. 230 if he's the most gifted bodybuilder of all time. The only problem is that we'd likely never know the answer to the question, because if someone had that much potential, it is HIGHLY unlikely they would stay natural long enough to compete at that weight.

    I am not sure, and it would be very hard to judge that....I believe in perspective that flex wheeler was around 215 or 220 when he turned pro at 5,10, or 5'11.........and he was a big bugger....i would bet not natural either...
    I had always thought i would be 230 on stage, i was wrong by about 15 lbs, after removing most of my fat, i woke up, and realized i needed to be a larger person than i currently am.....Contest condition is very tough to hold muscle when you dont really know whats going on for the first time at low doses....Being natural would really take a toll on the muscle for contest condition....it would also take a lot of expertise to do it well IMO
    I would say 215 would be a big natural guy on stage at 5'11"....

    Look at the pro true naturals, not too many of them compete at over 200 on stage... On stage i would say 210ish would be the max you would see... closer to 200 imho

    I was thinking along the same lines. Kind of a "perfect storm" scenario. I also agree with what Praetorian is saying about bone structure. I know I have a fairly small bone structure so it makes a difference compared to guys with a bigger frame. Competing at 200+lbs would be awesome...
