The Guillotine Press

If you’re looking to save time and want to do just one exercise for the chest, then the guillotine press is an excellent choice, since it provides surprisingly good activation of all fibers throughout the lower, middle, and upper chest.. There’s no need to do the decline, flat, and incline bench presses, the guillotine bench press truly is a 3 in 1. The Guillotine Press also sculpts and shapes the chest muscles making the chest look wide and more defined. Just ask two-time Mr. Olympia Larry Scott.

The Guillotine Press is the only bench pressing exercises he did. How to Perform The Guillotine Press. You can perform the Guillotine Press using a free weight barbell or a Smith Machine. The Guillotine Press is superior to other chest exercises for a number of reasons: Increased Tension on the Chest Muscles. The Guillotine Press creates focused tension on the chest muscles, particularly the upper chest.

Muscle tension, or rather Time under tension, leads to hypertrophy (a.k.a. muscle growth). Better Chest Isolation. Guillotine press variations.

The guillotine press is a variation of the bench press, but there are additional variations of this exercise you can use to add even more variety to your workouts. Dumbbell guillotine press. This variation is a little safer than the barbell guillotine press. Use the same movement path but holding dumbbells instead.

The guillotine press (also referred to as the “Gironda neck press”) is a chest exercise made famous by old-school bodybuilder Vince Gironda, well-known for developing a variety of unique bodybuilding training techniques that are still used to this day. Get Ready To Build A Bigger Upper Chest With The Guillotine Press! The guillotine press is an old school upper chest exercise that was made popular by Vince Gironda (aka The Iron Guru). It’s basically a bench press variation where you lower the barbell to your neck line.

The purpose of this is to target more of the upper chest. A guillotine press is simply a bench press where you take a wider-than-shoulder-width grip and lower the bar to your neck. And, if you look briefly at the anatomy involved, you can see that it stimulates the chest muscles better than practically any chest movement. When you lower the bar to your neck with your elbows flared, it stimulates the. Garhammer Raise on Swiss Ball. Incline Dumbell Flye with Rotating Grip Bentover One Arm Dumbell Trap 3 Raise.

BURNSVILLE, Minn. – In light of the NCAA Board of Governors’ decision to direct all institutions and conferences to meet specific requirements to conduct fall sports and the NCAA Division II Presidents Council’s announcement that all NCAA Division II fall championships are canceled, the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference’s Board of Directors has canceled NSIC. The Garhammer raise bypasses that problem by starting the movement with the hips bent at 90 degrees. From that position you perform a lumbar flexion to bring the knees toward your chest.

This is a short movement, but it’s all abs! The difficulty of the movement is increased by increasing the angle of the bench.

For the leg press, the resistance is increased in the hope that it will put the next performance within the heavy RM zone.

  • I was doing it for quite a while and could certainly feel the stretch on the negative. I can’t say it did much for my chest growth or definement. Probably needs shoulder press on the same day I’m guessing. That way the upper chest is attacked from two angles.

  • Hello, have you heard about http://musclegend.com yet? Simply head over to this web site on http://musclegend.com There you will find a useful free video showing the right way to build noteworthy muscles fast. It made it easier for Devan to break through his muscle mass building stagnation and consequently build up chiseled muscle mass with no fat super fast. Hopefully it works for you also.

  • Ive used the wide grip neck press for 30 yrs. Sensibly. Slow and deep reps. It’s spread my pecs. Like nothing else could. And prevented that overly puffy bitch tit look. You give good advice for novices. But, for seasoned bangers like me. It’s just puss advice.

  • yeah when i did bench wrong for such a long time and my front delts are way over developed and its so hard to train chest and tris now…

  • I really think it’s sad when these so-called “experts” come on and use their knowledge Kinesiology and sports medicine to try and kill an exercise. Vince Gironda developed this movement and had more knowledge in kinesiology than most anyone and he never even went to school for it. He had was a genius level I.Q. at around 150 and perfected movements over 50 years. Funny that nobody he ever trained (all of whom did the neck press) ever had shoulder problems……50 years of students equaling thousands. The reason people hurt themselves on movements like these is due most in part to poor instruction and execution of the movement. The neck press is superior to the standard bench press for work of the upper chest and outer pecs. No, you can’t use as much weight especially in the beginning, but the movement is superior when you learn it the right way. I see these guys all the time swaying people away from tried and true movements by using “science”, look…….these movements built some of the best physiques in history (most of which still look better than what we see today) and can still do so. Stop with the “science shows your body is put in a critical situation on this movement” crap. Learn to do it the right way, start slow, use light weight until you get strong.

  • yep. we must kill the bad fat and belly first to get the 6 pack. Listen to this In a best female model 2012 exclusive interview she had mentioned about her strong abs with this 7 food items. have a look here >> bit.ly/194gj2m?=lwzgk

  • u’re right. we must kill the bad fat and belly first to get the 6 pack. Listen My international body building trainer also recommended this 7 food elements to kill your fat belly. if you are serious go for it now bit.ly/11KFwgM?=bzqnu

  • DUMBELL incline is superior to this. Only reason to do this guillotine press is if you have no incline bench or dumbells. this is one of the most stupidest exercises ever created, even if it works.

  • Good advice, I’m gonna lower the back part of the bench a few more rungs down and see how that works. I’ll also try the guillotines w/135.

  • It’s fine for your shoulders AS LONG AS YOUR FORM IS GOOD, & as long as you don’t go stupid with the weight. As always, start light & increase weight as you see fit, once your form is perfected. I personally struggle to get a good ache on my chest but this never seems to fail. I’ve without doubt made better gains using this method & highly recommend it.

  • Hi, have you heard about Elite Muscle Formula? (check on Google) You will learn about the serious crimes we commit against ourselves. With Elite Muscle Formula, you will discover how to get ripped quickly.

  • THis guy is explaining it incorrectly. And you wont do this without someone to spot, and you start off lighter, and clearly that is why this dude is a goof. And he doesnt even have his legs up the way you are supposed to, and if you do it the correct way you will not get rotator cuff injuries. smh. Dudes trying to be gurus, when there already are real one who have been around a lot longer.

  • Hey there, have you heard of “Musclegends” (look on Google)? There you will find a great free video showing the right way to start building notable muscle mass easily. It made it possible for Devan to overcome his bodybuilding stagnation and then grow chiseled muscle mass with no fat very quickly. Perhaps it will help you out also.

  • i improved my upper chest and stability a lot doing the guillotine press, but my gym has safety arms on their bench press and i went light for high reps

  • wow… 1 year ago comment, what are you doin creeping year old comments xD too much time on your hands! +since then i’ve fixed it, no worries.

  • yep. i know the bad fat is the reason that stopping 6 pack coming outside even we work out well. Between I saw an interview with body building champion where he talks about 7 odd foods he eats to keep his abs hard. worth watch here now bit.ly/145wB5Y?=eekyk

  • Still alternating these with regular bench. I find somewhere between nipple and neck about right. Just cant decide if I’m better doing 3 @ my normal weight or 10-15 at lower weight then following up with some flyes. Pausing at the eccentric gives a nice stretch for sure. Cheers Lee.

  • Any exercise can b dangerous if u don’t do it right this exercise is awesome the late great vincegironda invented this exercise and it works

  • Hiya, have you discovered H6x Muscle Monster? (check on Google) You will discover the serious crimes we commit against our bodies. With H6x Muscle Monster, you will discover how to get ripped fast.

  • Hey Sean what do you think about skulpt bodyfat measuring products? I can’t really find a legit review hope you can help me with it.. it seems to good to be legit for me.. here is their official site if you’re interested http://www.skulpt.me/

  • I do Guillotine Press in my routine.  I also do flat and incline press (flat on Saturday and Incline on Wednesday).   I find incline press puts more size onto my upper pecs, but the Guillotine Press is defining the different muscles more clearly.  I leave the Guillotine press to 135 although I can do more; it is doing the trick.  No question incline dumbells for me is what builds my strength and “slowly” puts on size.   Just my personal experience.

  • It would be a shame if you did not bulk up when these normal people accomplish it easily using “MAD Ripped Muscle” (check it out on Google).

  • Guys this press will work very well to build overall chest.
    However, you have to use a very wide grip just inside the knurling rings is good.
    YOU MUST USE A MUCH LIGHTER WEIGHT!!! Due to the angle of the shoulder. If you don’t and use the ego to lift heavier and heavier your going to have issues. Higher reps are better as well 8-12 min!
    If you work out alone like I do, you must use catch bars on your bench! I even if you don’t do this press you should have safety bars on the bench at all times!

  • @witeboy888 thats why u should use 50-60% of ur normal weight u bench.I wonder if a combination,incline guillotine is better than these 2.

  • @shurdawg elevate your feet on a bench or bed or something of that height and do push ups, you can make it harder by using heavy duty bands too

  • Hey sean I recently read that 1.8-1.9g of protein per lb of BW is the most your body can process and use effectively. Is this also true for teenagers?

  • What would you say about a Floor Guillotine Press?? It wouldn’t go as deep than the normal version, do you think even the reduced ROM could be dangerous??

  • i figured why not just add safety bars just above the neck line and also do it on a smith machine…mind you i dont do the guillotine press but alternatively speaking ofcourse

  • I started watching your twin videos on things going on in the news. This video came up when searching youtube for upper chest workouts. I will be subscribing to this channel now.

  • Personally, I prefer to keep my shoulders pulled back/down to keep them spared. I don’t feel any difference in chest stimulation, and I get the added benefit of not wrecking my shoulders.

    That said, since it’s a risky lift and I refuse to ask random people to spot me, I just use the squat/power cage with the safety bars up (making sure no one is waiting to use it…I only do 2 sets).

  • Sorry bro the IRON GURU Vince Gironda, RIP, created this exercise. He had a stable of champion body builders w/ amazing upper pecs. This exercise forces the UPPER CHEST to work. Its about technique not for beginners

  • Hey YouTubers, have you heard about Blistering Fat Loss? (Go Google it) You will discover the crimes we commit against ourselves. With “Blistering Fat Loss”, you will discover how to burn off fat quickly.

  • hi lee can i do this after finish chest exrecise in order fell the hit

    and you didn’t tell how much rep and sets to do with that,what if i am not felexcible and can’t reach to my ears can i do it also?

    realy apriccate if u can answer me asap tnx in advanced!

  • Bullshit information, this is completely wrong. Your hand placement and setup is completely wrong thats why you can injure yourself. I am playing it since 6 to 8 months and i felt it much better upper pec activation and zero stress on shoulders so far. Sorry mate but you do not have a single idea how to play it.

  • I been tryin to improve my chest area maybe I should start working out again I haven’t done it in over 2 years and i’m kinda a twig now.

  • Hey YouTubers, have you discovered Trim Fat Maximizer? (Google it) You will find out about the serious crimes we commit against our bodies. With Trim Fat Maximizer, you will discover how to burn off fat quickly.

  • yes i mean it. we must kill the bad fat and belly first to get the 6 pack. Between I saw an interview with body building champion where he talks about 7 odd foods he eats to keep his abs hard. you can watch out here bit.ly/11KH5eP?=pkyjm

  • Try this: lay down without the bar and move your arms in the same way as you do when doing this press. The depth you reach without the weight is your limit. 
    You don’t want to force your muscles in to a ROM with a weight that they usually can’t reach without weight.
    By doing this, with Lee’s instructions you’ll probably be fine. 
    Although I would NOT teach this movement because of the high risk of injury.

  • i used to do 60-80 push ups about 6 times a day and butterflies a few times a day and press arm a few times a day. but like i said u guys give good advice.

  • After years of benching I can honestly say that this lift is the best in activating the upper pecks. I have always had trouble building the upper portion. I use 50%-60% of my 1rm and use a very controlled movement.

  • You don’t have to be sore. But, after a effective workout for me, my major muscles are sore the next morning (muscles such as pecs, lats, quads). I usually don’t feel the ache in my bis, tri, delts or calves.

  • My classmates laughed when I told them I was going to burn up fat with “Supreme Fat loss”, but then they saw the results. Go google “Supreme Fat loss” to see their reaction.

  • I’ve looked at EMG studies and the Guillotine press at 225 has more activation than a 275 bench… It blows all the Bench variations out of the water.

  • Hi, have you tried http://musclegend.com yet? Simply take a look at that website on http://musclegend.com There you will find a nice free video demonstrating the right way to gain notable muscle very fast. This helped Brandon to break through his muscle building plateau and therefore develop cut lean body mass without fat very quickly. Hopefully it will work for you as well.

  • I already told you. we must kill the bad fat and belly first to get the 6 pack.

    And I heard that most of the celebrities used to follow to kill their belly using this 7 food items.

    you can watch out here bit.ly/17zilas?=jevpe

  • I’ve never heard of this press before….to me all it sounds like is the next-gen more “hardcore” ego-lift. Hey, look at me! I’m so badass I’ll bring the bitch to my neck instead of my chest! I’ll pass

  • It would be a shame for you not to build muscle when normal people build muscle so easily using H6x Muscle Monster (go Google it).

  • It’s people like you that confuse young people today. Lift heavy train hard. Ban videos like this from You Tube, for are kids sake!!

  • It would be a shame for you not to bulk up when normal people are able to build muscle easily with Elite Muscle Formula (Google it).

  • You, young man, have no idea at all of that of whjch you speak regarding this movement…of course I am not young enough to know everything.

  • @twinmuscleadvises1 You seem to be missing the point here, obviously not everyone does the same weight, its about whats HEAVY for you and sticking with that for your 8-12 reps. or for a little mass building and gaining strength stick to 1-5. Moral of the story, go heavy for mass building cause of the different muscle fibers hence incline bench press > gullotine

  • nice exercise but  it could be very dengerous  for shoulders especially the front portion of shoulder area!! maybe lighter weights could be work efficiently!!

  • My classmates laughed when I told them I would get ripped with “Atomic Max Muscle”, but then they saw the results. Do a search on Google for Atomic Max Muscle to see their reaction. (You should see their faces!)

  • My coworkers laughed when I told them I would burn off fat with Shape X Booster, but then they saw the results. Do a search on google for Shape X Booster to see their reaction.

  • tore my rotator cuff doing muscle ups so trying this would be very hard.  i have to tuck my elbows in now when i bench.  that being said mens fitness uk april 2015 p 22 had a very cool graphic showing the guillotine press produces the most pec stimulation, 20% more than standard bench press.

  • This was back when it was actually possible to watch your videos, learn something and not turn it off before you even get to the point.

    Your shit literally takes 1:00 2:00 minutes just to even stop doing the dumb intro shit now, then another minute to even get to the point. Pretty sure this video was already going before 0:25 seconds.

    You should probably go back to that. But all of this is just advice

  • Do not completely agree with your advice. Any exercise can be dangerous if not done properly. Use common sense and start with light weight and proper technique. This exercise is not to be done with heavy weight but with proper form produces fantastic results

  • Hi there, have you discovered MAD Ripped Muscle? (Go Google it) You will find out about the serious crimes we commit against ourselves. With MAD Ripped Muscle, you will discover how to get ripped quickly.

  • Unreal how much more stress and pump in the pecs than regular bench press… Even with light weights. Tried these in power rack that has one inch settings so can have it just protect neck perfectly….

  • Reason #1 is more of an argument for simply using safety bars when doing any barbell bench press (which i suppose aren’t always available). Having the bar slip and drop on your chest can be really bad too. However, definitely agree that reason #2 is a good enough reason to stay away from these.

  • I just realized I always did guillotine press when I thought I was doing bench press….Because regular bench movement fcked up my shoulders

  • @injwqqn yeah. When i was working out hard to make muscles my senior guys did not tell me about this method. Between my friends are getting really big muscles after using this product. I know you’ll find perfect muscles depends on ur need after watching this clip => bit.ly/NvlxZ6?=gpxhec

  • don’t knock it until you’ve tried it. you have to do half your normal weight. I’ve had shoulder problems and this doesn’t affect them at all. do them correctly. squeeeeeeze it!!

  • Hey, have you heard about “MuscLeader” (have a look on Google)? On their website you can watch a nice free video explaining how you can grow visible muscle very fast whilst eliminating fat at the same time. Kev and plenty other guys experienced good results by using this method. I hope it helps you too…

  • Yes I agree cant even believe it. even i was very sad since i workout well for abs but nothing was coming.

    Listen to this I heard that most of the celebrities used to follow to kill their belly using this 7 food items.

    worth watch here now bit.ly/1arwmLZ?=wslri

  • I am completely confused dude other guys on youtube say that doing this will destroy my shoulders and even I can expect a surgery every ne says sth completely different I do not listen to anyne I only do exercises which do not make any pain for me bbut take it easy I don t do cut dead lifts

  • will thsi exercise vanish man boob’s?Will this exercise give me a perfect chest?How much reps should i do as a beginners?plz reply

  • this exercise is actually really good if done properly. i wasn’t getting development in the upper chest at all when doing incline bench. when i did this for the first time i got really sore in the upper chest. just go light and im telling you. You will make all kinds of gains.

  • Dangerous lift!!! LOL  Skip the BP and instead do standing press. The chest hogs up too much muscle and leaves your legs a bit thin. In fact make squats and calf-raises 70% of your work-out and you’ll have  a mighty fine set of wheels that will stand out…make for a balanced upper-lower body.

  • A press with shrugged shoulders, abducted humerus, that positions a bar path over a neck? And all this to “work the upper chest” which is properly worked on, say, simple incline bench?

    No, thanks.

    The music selection is great though, kudos for that.

  • I used the Guillotine Press after having my rotator cuff ripped from my shoulder after a kayaking incident went wrong and it helped me build strength in my shoulder again so i believe some of the information given here is false

  • @vodstbi yep i agree. It was tough when I was working out hard and no muscles were coming in my thin body. Listen i just had to laugh its what i’ve been wanting for years I went straight out and got the whole set. I know you’ll find perfect muscles depends on ur need after watching this clip >> bit.ly/OmjtVO?=tgbxef

  • @*****, thank you! I’ll be trying this once I recover from foot surgery. Over the last month, since surgery, I have lost a lot of mass already. This should help me make a comeback!

  • My family laughed when I told them I was going to get ripped with “Ripped X Beast”, but then I showed them the results. Do a search on Google for Ripped X Beast to see their reaction. (You should see their faces!)

  • I’ve never been injured doing the neck press/guillotine press. Keep it light with slow reps. It stimulates the chest far more than a standard bench press with heavier weight.

  • Hey, have you considered this plan called the MegaMax Muscle Maker? (check google). My father in law says it helps people get buff.

  • Hello there, have you considered “MuscLeader” (have a look on Google)?

  • Hey Sean, wish I saw this video sooner. I want to hit my upper inner chest (who doesn’t) so I gave this one a whirl and of course is bothered (not injured thankfully) my shoulder. What do you recommend in its place? (other than the obvious incline bench press/dumbbell press) Thanks man, good video

  • you are correct. You are smart if you understand you need to eat right at your age to kill your belly. And One of my friend working in fitness field suggested me this 7 secret food items to kill our jelly belly. get to know here bit.ly/12rhlRl?=sxtwd

  • All these pussies saying it will fuck their shoulders up and it’s dangerous, I’ve been doing it for years with no problem just do it correctly like lee says, great exercise.

  • very dangerous exercise, not just for the obvious reasons, it puts the elbows in a mechanically weak position which means you can damage it very easily through overuse or too much weight.

  • I really like all the tips im getting from your videos, and i think you guys should take a camera to your gym and run through some workouts to help identify different lifts and the proper motions for them!

  • I see the predictable cries of rotator cuff injury. As said by Lee, this is an exercise to be incredibly careful with, for the thinking/methodical lifter, not the guy who does bicep curls with his lower back. Use a weight you can completely dominate, focus on control/form, and work on your shoulder mechanics as you work on incorporating this exercise.

    I only use 105 on this, and my upper pecs have already filled out past my collar bone.

  • Sean, I disagree to a point. Doing them on incline solves the worry about the neck. Second, use light weight and do time under tension aka extremely slow. Third, really accentuate the stretch on bottom and the top on extension. This way they really are safe and effective.

  • i can’t comment on whether it works better or not, but what i can say is that it’s death for your neck and shoulders. tension is such a problem if you do resistance training no matter how well you stretch and even if you do get regular massages. this will put such a strain on neck and shoulders and you’ll pay for it in pain (and not the good kind)

  • people get injured doing standard barbbell curl. so what does it mean? barbbell curl is dangerous?? fuck no!! i do guillotine press with a suicide grip and it works like a charm on my upper pecs. zero stress on my shoulders because i retract my shoulder blades and keep it that way through out the movement. sorry but please dont use ur argument against subjective matters.

  • Hello there! Have you considered fast abs magic (should be on google have a look)? Ive heard some incredible things about it and my GF got amazing 6 pack abs and lost a lot of weight with it.

  • @Twinmuscleworkout DUDES, GET SOME GYM VIDEOS IN WHERE U GUYS ARE LIFTING WEIGHTS, show us what you talking about, your views will double.

  • yes I agree cant even believe it. before I started eating right it didn’t matter how much I exercised my abs were still jello. But Do you know about the 7 odd foods that kill belly fat if you don’t know about them you must see this. have a look here >>> bit.ly/ZtpRmL?=lzhgt

  • @doorlocker im glad im not the only one who understands this, i try to explain this to confused women who think working out will make their asses rounder that they can truly only make a muscle bigger, but theyre convinced they can have a body like jessica biel or vida guerra if they work at it anyway

  • you should first start working hard n heavy your triceps, with compound exercises as triceps dips, closegrip BP, skullcrushers… 4 to 8 reps, n finish with isolation exercise as tricep pushdowns, 10-15 reps, no pain no gain…

  • Looks good. I’ll try this. My chest and trio’s have recently exploded from doing pull ups, push ups, and dip. 50/ 200/ 50 x 4 days a week. 

  • Yes i mean it. You are smart if you understand you need to eat right at your age to kill your belly.

    Listen to this do you know about the 7 odd foods that kill belly fat if you don’t know about them you must see this.

    i found it here bit.ly/19cEATC?=ksili

  • when you’re doing dips, your shoulders are being pulled backwards cuz of your arms being behind you. when doing a guillotine your arms are in front of you. There’s different parts of your shoulders man..

  • Nothing wrong with the Guillotine bench press, go light with high reps,15-25 and use this exercise last in chest work-out. You don’t need books or a personal trainer certificate, to know all exercises have their potential to be dangerous. So they must be performed in the safest way. With this exercise use a smith machine which is perfect, or a spotter, and don’t go heavy. use it for blood flow growth and a great pump, these guys never talk about the deadlift or squat overloading the discs in the spine, which again if not performed correctly & with stupid ego weight, can potentially cripple one for the rest of there life. Just use common sense.

  • i did guillotine press today feel great, seen someone try be clever and do it with 180lbs, if hes didn’t have a spotter he would of as you say snapped his shit off!

  • Great way to fuck up your shoulders. Looks like the first timers I see in the gym on day one, then 7 days later, they’re no where to be seen lol.

  • People will buy bull shit programs by fake natty fitness models that cost them so much but wont buy Seans stuff
    Wow what a time to live in

  • Hello there, have you heard about “MuscLeader” (look on Google)? There you will find a good free video demonstrating how you can start building visible lean muscle very fast while dropping body fat at the same time. Ryan and many other guys experienced amazing success by using this technique. It may help you too.

  • The guillotine press is another term for “improper bench press”. I don’t care how much better this stresses the chest; it’s not worth putting the shoulders at risk. Thanks for posting this, Sean!

  • @ddiuxzx yes. i know the bad fat is the reason that stopping 6 pack coming outside even we work out well. Listen to this One of my friend working in fitness field suggested me this 7 secret food items to kill our jelly belly. worth watch here now >>> bit.ly/STuhvI?=kyykwu

  • ive tried the motions with my hands and the only thing that i can feel is my shoulders.

    imo this will only fuck your shoulders

    i personally skipping this.

  • Thanks for sharing this video, Lee. This exercise looks as challenging as it is rewarding!

    Question: What difference does the ‘squeezing’ movement that you showed make? I mean, is it essential for the actual exercise?

  • @Kalonsoldierfront On the incline bench press the bar should almost hit your chin, you will be able to push more weight and hit your upper chest more effectively, So sounds like your doing it with solid form:)

  • 1 your face is turning red on 135 lbs
    2 your wrapping your thumb under the bar
    3 your arms were shaking at 135 lbs
    4 you may fallow greats but you know nothing.

  • It would be a shame if you did not get ripped when normal people accomplish it so easily using “Ripped Max Stagger” (Look it up on Google).

  • believe it or not, there are only 2 things you can do to change how your muscles will look 1. get it bigger 2. lose fat. The rest is genetics. Training “upper boob, side boob, inner boob, outer boob, ETC” won’t change how your muscle will develop. Sure its nice to change up your routine with different variations of the same exercise, BUT YO TITTIES IS NOT CLAY, YOU CANNOT SHAPE YOUR MUSLES TO YOUR LIKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GENETICS GENETICS GENETICS, look it up =)
