Do you have the genetic potential to be a great bodybuilder ? :

The first step, no doubt, to have a great physique is to choose the right parents, the second is to provide the necessary work.
If you want to know if you have the potential to become a great bodybuilder, you can self-assess yourself with the following factors.

The length and quality of your muscle insertions
The lower your muscle is inserted (when your muscle attaches very close to the tendon), the stronger and more aesthetic it will be.
The concept is not new, just look at the statues built in Rome and ancient Greece as the demi-god Hercules to see an example of physics with low muscle insertions.
One of the muscles that most easily illustrates this concept is the biceps, Larry Scott and Arnold Schwarzenegger are classic examples of people blessed with "long" biceps and therefore fit low.
Notez que les personnes ayant un grand développement du grand dorsal ont des insertions très basses; Franco Columbu, et Ronnie Coleman viennent immédiatement à l’esprit pour illustrer ce fait.
Vous voulez un corps en V ? Il faut avoir un grand dorsal qui s’insère bas
The lower your inserts are, the more you will have a mechanical advantage and therefore the more you will be able to produce strength. Low insertions are the main reason Grizzly bears are such strong animals.

The circumference of your calves and forearms
Long-term studies conducted in the Polish school system during the 1970s revealed that the best anatomical predictor for the ability to gain strength and power was the calf circumference of young people, then the second indicator was the forearm circumference.
In other words, a young person with 38 cm calf and 32 cm forearm will have a good place in power sports. Since the study was focused on over 40,000 students and today these data also apply to weight training.
Many of the more massive bodybuilders such as Casey Viator and Mike Matarazzo had massive calves and forearms to start with. The former Mr.Olympia Chris Dickerson was born with huge calves and barely worked them to reach the highest in the IFBB.

Hormonal composition
The ideal hormonal composition for a bodybuilder would include high endogenous production of androgens and growth hormone, low cortisol levels, and insulin sensitivity.
Those who are blessed with a higher hormonal composition can often hypertrophy some muscle groups with very little stimulus.
In 1982, Dr. M. Dietmar Schmidtbleicher of the Institute of Sports Sciences at the University of Freiburg, shows the computed tomography of subjects who underwent a training protocol for triceps, those with the highest hormonal profiles experienced an hypertrophy not only in the triceps, but also in the brachials and biceps, which are the muscles that have antagonistic functions to triceps.
They had a better hormonal profile, there was a non-specific hypertrophic response, even in the unsolicited muscles!

Neurological efficiency.
In bodybuilding jargon, this means: are you more "repetitions" or "heavy weights".
A "repeat" person will make 20 repetitions at 80% of his maximum, while a "heavyweight" person will make only 3, and an average person will make about 7 repetitions at this percentage.
The most blessed individuals are generally poor in relative endurance, in other words they are of the "heavyweight" type.
These people can draw from the higher threshold fibres, and therefore can stimulate a greater proportion of their muscle fibres. I would add that this factor is not very important, but it is important to point it out, because there are many professional bodybuilders with extreme levels of hypertrophy that were "rep" type. For example, Serge Nubret was a "reps" guy, while Franco Columbu was a "heavyweight".
