Default Re: What is the Role of Genetics and Practice in Superior Performance?

To give an update on this.

I am doing some crazy research on the topic right now.

I am investigating the deliberate practice hypothesis from a physiological point of view; something that is not discussed nearly enough in the expert performance literature.

I actually came in with a slight bias thinking genetics would play a rather large role. Well, they do. But the question is: can you overcome your genetics with practice? Right now...I am starting to think you could make some incredible adaptations with physical exercise. What I am reading is contrary to a ton of mantras I have been taught.

I will keep you guys up to date!

And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
