The physique of the male gymnast
My little sister wants to be an olympic gymnast. She has a DVD of the 2012 Olympics that she watches all the time.
Yesterday I decided I had nothing better to do, so I watched it with her.
I'd never really taken much notice of the olympic gymnastics when they were on TV, this was the first time I watched it properly.
As I watched it I noticed 2 things.
1.) The incredible strength they had 2.)Their muscular development
They looked like bodybuilders, which I didn't quite understand.
Everything they do is the exact opposite of how a bodybuilder trains.
.They train for hours a day
.They mostly use only body weight exercises
.Im assuming they aren't maintaining a calorie surplus either
So how do they do it? Nearly all of them have a similar physique to the type I'd like to look, and they stay ripped all year round! I'd love to look like them.
