Anything available other then nikes and adidas?
You can get handmade Risto shoes cheaper than AdiPowers or Romaleos. They also offer customization for a bit more.
I'd prob do that if I was looking for a pair.

i also think most people don't think they have the genetic potential for bodybuilding as relative strength is something you can train for while symmetry, size, etc is not
I don't doubt that many people do more work than me, that's expected, especially if they're pros. I meant for my strength level, which is 320 squat, 215 bench, 350 deadlift.
I don't split my training into bodyparts, but looking at my program its roughly 70 total working sets for lower and upper body each a week split over 5 full body sessions, so 5x frequency.
Of course I like to get bigger, but its not my main goal. It's a nice effect that comes with the strength increases. Your last part is pretty spot on imo. Success in bodybuilding feels more genetically dependent than powerlifting, up to a certain level at least. If your insertions and natural proportions are bad you'll never get anywhere in bodybuilding.
