They are small which helps them look bigger
I'm sure many of them lift weights, at some point
They have the best trainers, food, and drugs that money can buy
Yeah I understand that, what I dont get is why everyone stresses about rest time, over training, progressive overload, ect, and the gymnasts seem to defy that logic.
