Once again if your theory that bodyweight training is only for endurance, how do these gymnasts get such big muscles? It's well known their trainers don't want them lifting weights and encourage bodyweight training ONLY.

That corner you are painted into right now can't be too comfortable playboy.
So how come the gymnast I posted isnt huge. I mean he won gold he is the best gymnast in the world yet he doesn't have a physique that is huge.

The reason is that genetics determine a large portion of our motor unit recruitment ability. You could lift 10 lbs and I could lift 10 lbs and we could both adapt quite diffrently.

Your reasoning is based off of ancedotes whereas I have mine based on Scientific Research buddy.

read this first, then Ill let you partake in this discussion.
