The strength is definitely genetic. If not for injuries, I believe that I would have benched 500 at under 200 lbs. She did 125 on the woman's universal machine easily. She only weighs 70lbs. I use to let her work out and she did a lot of pushups, she could do 30 easily. She hasn't lifted weights in a few years though. She has the potential to be a PL champion, I believe.
