Genetics is not as important as a factor as you make it out to be and you sound downright stupid for even insinuating that Ronnie is some supreme human being when it comes to building muscle. Get your head of of Flex magazine.
That is untrue.
If it is, any numbnuts who lift weights and according to rumours, roid up will be a contender for Mr Olympia. But no, you always see the same faces in Olympia and the fact is its hard to get your IFBB pro card. Just look at the difference between those who have the card and the also rans.
Also, you would notice that many Olympia contestants are of Negroid origin or have Germanic/Austrian blood. Given Olympia is in USA and many of the Pro cards are from there, there should be more caucasian males qualifying since that is the majority of US population.
If its attachment, those are temporary like pecs implant. If its calves attachment, it looks like a balloon and wont change even when you flex.
Just ask any bodybuilder how hard it is to get to Ronnie's level.
Ronnie himself once told the story of how when he was in his teens, he always gets stopped in the streets by people asking if he trains. The fact is that he doesnt but looks like he does even in his youth.
