Already Past My “Genetic Muscular Limit”

There’s a Limit, But It’s Probably Not Genetic

Back in 2019, based on my ever-slowing rate of progression, I figured my “genetic limit” was around 24FFMI — fat free mass index, a measure of how much muscle you have.

I hadn’t been gaining as much the past year or two of training, and so I thought 24 would probably be about where I ended up at the end of my “lifting career”. I had already been training for five years and I had seen charts online showing how little it’s possible to gain after that.
