    True, but if you don’t strength train and do some form of high intensity cardio 3 or 4 times per week, then the most spectacular genetics in the world are not going to matter as much as you would think.
    VO2 max and strength are the 2 primary indicators of longevity in a person after all (per Peter Attia), assuming they don’t get hit by a bus, become a  meth/heroin/crack junkie, or ragging alcoholic. 
    And, the only way you increase VO2 max and strength are picking up heavy objects and putting them down and moving your a$$ in a variable rate of intensity for extended periods of time. 
    Plus, the good news is that these things can be had for a small gym fee or just an open road….and time/commitment.
