    How do male gymnasts have such big arms?

    Does anyone know how they have such big arms...like 18" bis. If they train them everyday...how do they grow so big? They all have small frames w/ huge arms.

    cause they require alot of arm strength to perfom their gym stuff
    Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a few cents. Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything—all she had to live on.”

    Because they've been constantly training their body to support their own weight, as well as for explosiveness since they were very very young.

    Yah...but doesn't that go against the reasoning that if you train arms everyday that they won't grow because you're overtraining them?

    a person working out arms is directly straining just the bi/tri muscle, where as a gymnist is going to be doing bodyweight movements that require the cooperation of the entire musclular system to perform it. So a gymnist isnt going to over train their muscles because they are not directly training single muscles

    Good point...so would incorporating bodyweight movements into bodybuilding be a good idea? For example...like handstands and assisted handstand pushups..etc.

    sure. People do wide grip pulls ups all the time in bodybuilding.

    cant go wrong with pull-ups, dips, pushups, etc.

    So then how do sprinters have a lot of mass if they run a lot? Does that mean if I incorporate HIIT cardio into my routine, but eat an excess of calories I could possibly gain mass while sheddin a bit fat too?

    No, most of us do not juice. If you've never done gymnastics you wouldn't understand. Juicing in gymnastics would be completely POINTLESS. Not only was it found by the East Germans that roids made them not be able to finish routines. Listen, I'm coming to you as a gymnast and a guy who knows many elite gymnasts and has trained with them:

    Gymnastics, along with being extremely physical, is also SKILLS based and JUDGED. I'm sorry, but let's say you're doing a cross on rings, and you tilt your head to the side a little bit, the judges will mark points off of you. If you don't point your toes while doing something, you will get points marked off. NONE of those things require any strength to do, they're just mental things.

    Just because you're strong and/or fit enough to do something in gymnastics DOES NOT mean you are going to score well on it. People don't seem to understand this for some reason. Doping would be stupid.


    And the ones who are caught, like Morgan Hamm was just a few days ago? It's not roids or anything that's amazing. He was caught for an anti-inflammatory, which is used by TONS of athletes, but banned by the olympic committee.


    As my friend, an elite gymnast said to me once "I've never actually heard anyone say that gymnasts use steroids and be serious"

    yeah that was a good part of this months issue. they have functional strength and great size. In my opinion the body of a gymnast or even Jason Statham is the ideal body because its all functional.

    The reason why we have such big muscles is because most of the things we do requires a ton of strength. People take their own bodyweight for granted it's so funny.

    Listen, if you are 150 pounds, you probably take it for granted that you can do something with your own bodyweight because you've been carrying it around with you forever and are used to it. Then someone asks you to do something hard, and you can't do it. Why? Because although you don't think it's that much, 150 pounds is still a lot of weight to be supporting on nothing but your hands.

    Your bodyweight doesn't change, but changing the leverage of an exercise can "simulate" adding many more pounds. An example is hanging leg raises. I've almost never seen anyone at a gym do them the way we do them in gymnastics, which is hang straight down and bring your legs up to where your hands are. Everyone just bends their knees up and never progresses. The fact of the matter is, the leverage on the one we do is so minimal that it's much harder and will build your muscles up WAY faster and will get you way stronger. Doing something straight legged is always harder than bent legs and will affect every muscle that's actually doing something (i.e. in this your shoulders).

    Okay Let's take even something even like tumbling. Again let's say you're 150 pounds. If you've ever tumbled before, you know you can generate **** loads of power, which is why you see guys doing amazing stunts while tumbling.

    Force = mass * acceleration..again, you practice, you might gain some speed, acceleration goes up, which means that force does too and if you don't do it wrong, your muscles will naturally be built by this.

    As someone said before, weight lifting isn't the only form of resistance training. In real life, you use tons of muscles in your body at once to do something. Functional strength training is also PROVEN to have a higher strength performance output than just straight up lifting.



    P.S. And the people saying stuff about 'gay gymnasts'...I really don't know any gay gymnasts and there aren't that many. Apparently gymnastics is gay because you wear tight stuff while doing things alone that requires tons of strength, balance, flexibility, etc...WHILE wrestling is "Cool" even though you wear tight stuff too and you grab at another guy and lay ontop of him. Grow up guys, seriously. You guys want to know a secret? When I go to my regular gym at my college and do regular warmups before I go do my regular workout, I'll do maybe some planche pushups or something a bit hard with my bodyweight, whatever. Guess what? Women come and talk to me every ****ing time about it and I become friends with them (and sometimes more). How many times have you been benching and a woman comes up "ohh cool bench!" Never happened to me once and I've never seen it at school to anyone else either, and I go there 5 times/week. The fact of the matter is, most women could give a **** less how much you bench, squat, and deadlift if you are looking to impress them. They care about stuff that goes into real life, and I hate to say it, but they look for stuff that says you might be good in bed. And nothing says you might give them a good time in bed if you can move your body around seamlessly. Think about it, why do you think so many women go crazy over male gymnasts?

    As an ex girlfriend of mine said about dancing "showing that you can dance well shows you might be good at some other things ;-) and we as women pay attention to that."

    Sorry for the rant, but nothing pisses me off more than people assuming someone is gay because they do gymnastics.

    lol dont worry abotu it man, your gettuin insulted by a bunch of guys who want to wear thongs and step onto a stage with other buff men and get judged based on how they look by a bunch of male judges, bodybuilding is alot more gay then gymnastics IMO.
