How to grow a bone - Nina Tandon

View full lesson:

Can you grow a human bone outside the human body? The answer may soon be yes. Nina Tandon explores the possibility by examining how bones naturally grow inside the body, and illuminating how scientists are hoping to replicate that process in a lab.

Lesson by Nina Tandon, animation by Giant Animation Studios.

Are Your Genetics KILLING Your Gains?

Ever wondered if you have good enough genetics to actually build muscle? If so, this is the video you need to watch. Jeff Cavaliere and Jesse Laico dive into the viewer mailbox to answer the question of what can be done if your genetics for building muscle just aren’t so great.

The reality is, far too often people try and simplify one of the most complicated phenomena in the human body - genetics. It is not as simple as having either good genetics or bad genetics. Instead, you may have elements of your genetics that are favorable for building muscle and getting ripped while others are not nearly as gifted.

Instead of looking at yourself as either a Lamborghini or a Prius you have to realize that no matter what model car your body resembles at the moment you can quickly improve it - just as if you were to upgrade to a better package on the model you have now.

As with any discussion of genetics however, there are intangibles and outside factors that influence that way your genetics express themselves. If you do these things right, the expression of your genes can wind up with an entirely different outcome than you would expect.

Let’s discuss some of the things that are hard coded however and not likely to be influenced by anything other than picking your parents. These are called anthropometric factors. Things that influence your body structure, dimensions and proportions. Bone structure and skeletal width are very important factors. Let’s face it, if you are 5 foot 7 and have narrow shoulders you will never have the muscle mass like the Rock.

He simply has a much wider, broader skeleton that allows him to pack on much more muscle than you do. Now that doesn’t mean that you can’t optimize the amount of muscle that you can put on your frame and look amazing at the end of the day.

Other things like the torso to lower body ratio can dramatically impact leverages and your ability to lift strongly. It leads to reason that if you have better leverage to perform more powerful lifts that you will have an easier time building muscle through overload than someone who has very unfavorable limb lengths.

It goes even further…

If you have poor distribution of androgen receptors within your muscle bellies you simply won’t respond hormonally to training as a stimulus as someone who has a greater density of them. Likewise, if your muscles are made up of a much higher proportion of type I fibers rather than type II, your ability to be explosive and carry more muscle as a result will be lower.

These are things that you cannot change much, if at all, so it doesn’t merit much focus in your training.

The things that can be changed however are your willpower and consistency of training. I don’t care what your genetics look like, if you are willing to commit to a consistent workout program or schedule and get yourself in the gym on a regular basis to train hard and smart - you will have better results than most who don’t or aren’t willing to do the same.

Likewise, if you have a greater capacity to remain focused during a session or have a higher threshold for pain and training discomfort you will likely be able to push yourself harder than the next person and get a greater stimulus for growth from your workouts.

Of course, what you do outside the gym matters immensely in other areas as well.

What does your nutrition look like? Are you eating well enough to support your hard training in the gym? Are you getting adequate sleep to promote optimal recovery from your workouts which will help you to recover faster and see better gains because of it.

The bottom line is this, instead of looking to others and idolizing their results in comparison to yours, focus on yours alone and look for ways to optimize them. I promise you this, if you do, the results you achieve will be nothing short of amazing and better than you ever could have imagined.

Bones: Structure and Types

We've got the skin covered, so now let's take a look at bones! These give structure to the body. Bone is a type of tissue, but an actual complete bone is an organ, because there is lots of stuff inside besides bone. What else is in there? Find out here!

How To Tell If Your Genetics Are Good For Bodybuilding (FIND OUT NOW!)

In this video I will tell you how to find out if you have good or bad genetics for bodybuilding.

This is a very common topic that needs to be addressed urgently. Some people think they can become a MR Olympia overnight when really their genetics are crap.

Good genetics are the ones that give you that small waist and wide back. This is most favourable in bodybuilding and aesthetics.

A wider pelvis and rib cage will make you look more blockier.

So the first thing is muscle attachments. You cannot change this therefore if your muscle bellies are short then you're unlikely to have thickness especially in the arms

The next one is bone structure and the one that makes the biggest difference is the pelvis and rib cage.

The one thing about genetics that I hate is that you cannot change them at all so building more muscle may be harder overall and looking thicker and bigger.

In this video I actually compare myself to Eric Helms from 3DMJ and this guy has done a lot. The only reason why I did this is becuase I couldnt think of anyone else to use.

Now to clarify I do not claim my physique is anything like his or near it!

I also out angled him in one picture so keep that in mind as well. Overall if you want to find out if you have good or bad genetics just flex your muscles and look at the instertions and origins. That will tell you mostly.

You can also measure your waist and the compare that to your body to see if that will give you an indicator if your waist is level with the pelvis.

One more thing I have to mention about bad genetics is that you must not compare yourself to anyone else. Genetics can be bad,shit or anything. That said I guarantee you, you have some good genetics somewhere.

Bony to Beastly Ectomorph Genetics Quiz #2: Bone Thickness (Wrist Size)

If you're like me, you've got exceptionally narrow wrists. Almost everyone in the Bony to Beastly community does. Way, way bellow average. But what does that mean?! And how does your measurement stack up against other ectomorphs? (Are you even an ectomorph?)

There's some good research looking into wrist size and muscle-building genetics, notably that of Dr. Casey Butts.

Wrap-up: the thicker your bones, the heavier you'll be naturally, and the more easily you'll gain muscle and strength. This helps answer the why am I skinny? question, and gives us clues as to how best take advantage of our genetics.

How To Find Out If You Have Good Genetics

Featuring an arms workout at my new gym and discussing how to find out if you have good genetics. Genetics is everything in muscle building.

Need help reaching your fitness goal? Start by watching my exclusive masterclass (will teach you way more than wasting time on youtube). Go here to watch it and also get my sustainable fitness guide:


▶ How did everything start?

My name is Xenios Charalambous, and I help busy people lose weight and sustain their results.

I started my fitness journey when I was 13 years old, after a rejection I had from a girl at school. I was skinny (103 lbs, 47kg), unhealthy, depressed, addicted to video games, and I had no self-confidence. I struggled through my teens, and I realised that the only person who is responsible for my life's direction is me... so I took action.

After years of trial and error, I cracked the code, and I finally transformed my body and mind, but that wasn't enough... I decided to challenge more myself by applying for the special forces. I successfully completed the 2 years training and took my mental strength into a whole new dimension.

I shared my story on youtube, went viral all around the world (over 6.7 million views), and my fitness company was found. After getting known worldwide, I moved to London where I was coaching A-List celebrities, partnered with companies like X-Factor, Google, Morgan Stanley and Amazon to train their executives.

I now specialise in helping busy individuals lose weight with a proven sustainable system. Since 2013, I've helped hundreds of people worldwide transform their life. Check out my website for more information. (Start with the masterclass, link shared above)

Are you a Genetic Phenom? // Bodybuilding and Genetics explained!

In this video, I mentioned how bone structure, muscle shape/insertions, muscle building genetics, and body composition genetics all are important factors when it comes to bodybuilding. The better your genetics the higher chances of you doing well in physique shows.

Is the genetic limit real?

Please bear in mind that I accidentally deleted a part where I was talking about the genetic limit calculator devised by Casey Butt.

Can The Subconscious Change Genetic Expression?

It may be a tough subject to wrap your mind around, but Dr. Darren Weissman discusses the subconscious mind and its potential to affect how our genes express themselves. Could it mean your could actually change things like hair and eye color? Watch and find out!

Bony to Beastly Ectomorph Genetics Quiz #1: Bone Breadth

A couple studies out of Johns Hopkins University found that with just a couple measurements we can learn quite a lot about our muscle-building genetics.

Wrap-up: the more of a v-taper you have in your bone structure, the heavier you'll be naturally, and the more easily you'll gain muscle and strength. This helps answer the why am I skinny? question, and gives us clues as to how best take advantage of our genetics.

How To Make Your Waist Smaller ( Even If You Have Bad Genetics )

One my subscribers asked me how to make your waist smaller. In this video I am going to show you exactly how to get your waist as small as possible without a BS approach like most of the other youtube videos.

If you have fat on your waist, you're going to make it look bigger. So the first step is to make sure you drop as much
more fat as possible in order to make your waist as small as possible.

When it comes to the size of your waist, the pelvic skeleton size plays a big role. This is also something
that you can't change as the pelvic skeleton is made of bones. You can't make your bones smaller.

The only way to fix your pelvic skeleton size is by making your back and shoulders bigger. By having bigger back
and shoulders, you're going to give the illusion that you have smaller waist.

Do I have to have good genetics to build muscle?

Genetics in bodybuilding can sometimes have a bad reputation, some people choose to ignore the subject and others tend to obsess over it. How is it possible that one person can do half the work, but still achieve greater results than someone who is working twice as hard? I choose to focus on what I can control, but first I need to understand what it is that I can control. The topic of genetics can be complicated, which is why I took the time to create this video which will explain to you in simple terms, how genetics affects your ability to put on muscle. ENJOY!
