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.
I already talked about genetics. It isn't even a point of contention, merely a distraction because you are painted into a corner with no way out.

read this first, then Ill let you partake in this discussion.
So you are saying big gymnasts don't exist?

That they don't use bodyweight training only?

Wait... How about this...

The pic of the gymnast I posted was photoshopped... Every pic of every big, muscular gymnast is photoshopped and the TV networks are in on the conspiracy.
