Bodybuilders With The Most Superior Genetics

Who was blessed with the most gifted genetics.

We’re all in agreement that genetics in bodybuilding is as essential to making a champion as determination and consistent hard work and training.

Many bodybuilders will tell you that hard work trumps all, but no matter what, genetics will always rule the day. That being said, who amongst the many genetically gifted bodybuilders, past or present, possess some of the most blessed genetics?
