I definitely think athleticism is the result of training, only I believe everyone has a different maximum potential level.

this.

if you do the right things everyone can reach their max potential, but everyone starts and ends off at different points.

I trained hard to be able to dunk, but i know dudes that have never lifted a weight in their life and can do windmills with ease. sometimes it's just genetics.

True, I think most people have a much higher potential than they think though. Dunking isn't always the best measure of athleticism though. I know guys who are lanky with long arms that can dunk but aren't very athletic. If you compare Jacob Tuckers dunks in last years college dunk contest to some of Dewight Howards dunks in the NBA contest a few years ago I think Tuckers required more athleticism even though Howard got the ball a lot higher.

Exactly this.

Some are just gifted and have a higher limit/capacity. But you can definitely increase it.

okay cool, this is good reaffirmation that some of the weight training I do would not go to waste :oldlol:
