    I consider Flex to be a friend of mine, but even I always felt he could have done a lot more if he had been 100% dedicated the way someone like Dorian was.

    Truth!

    Out of Me, Kevin & Dorian, Flex had the most genetic gifts to work with and we would all agree that if we had s year in Flex's body with our "Work Ethics" we would be better than Flex was at his absolute best!

    Flex would agree & tell you the same!







    Strength & Honor!

    There is also Milos's hilarious commentary on Flex. Obvious that he was myostatin deficient.

    Still, would have been nice to hear Flex's take on genetics.

    I'd be hard pressed to think of a Pro that doesn't have good genetics. The gyms (and local sows) are FULL of people who want to grow, but have troubles. How many times have we seen pics of these guys as teens and thought - "Geez, I wish I looked as good after years of training, as they did starting off!"?

    Genetics are overrated, it takes a perfect storm to create a flex wheeler, great shape and proportions, response to drugs, training and food etc. It's a one in a billion chance.
    Most of us have only one or two of those gifts at best, I myself can get away with training legs once a month and still have bigger stronger legs than most other guys in my gym, my bench press is shit though and my biceps suck, but hey that's life.

    I've studied sports psychology extensively and it amazes me just how powerful the mind really is, being gifted isn't always enough.

    i cant really belive that flex was a lazy trainer. even with the best genetics you have to do the work.

    From the videos I've seen of him training he never seemed to look like he was pushing himself and was always holding back something. Now if that's the effort you put in when the camera is on you then I'm guessing when the filming stops the effort moves down a gear. I wouldn't necessarily say he was lazy, he just was economical with his efforts. It happens in all walks of life with gifted people, think about at school I guarantee there was someone who was seriously smart, yet never seemed to put it the effort in class.

    Kevin is the least indicated to talk about Flex.
