Sports athletes and their physiques
 
1 Attachment(s)
Was watching a boxing match the other day. It was David Haye vs some other Russian man.

I noticed he had a great physique, and so did the other guy.


Boxers, and other athletes seem to be an exception to the muscle and strength building rule.
If you look at a boxers training plan and diet, its noting like a powerlifters, or a bodybuilders, yet they have allot of strength and particularly in a boxers case, quite a bit of muscle mass. (I'd be more than happy to have David Haye's body!)

Does anybody know how that works? Everyone else is bulking and cutting, lifting heavy weights, yet he and other athletes look great just by training from their sport.

What do you mean "How does that work?", you already mentioned that their training and diet plans are nothing like PLers or BBers, so there's the answer, I assume...unless you're looking for a medical/biological breakdown, in which case, never going to happen.

Turn into a 6'3" black guy and work out a lot, and you will look like him.

Contrary to your post, he does in fact, lift weights.

Why do you assume they don't weight train?

I know Haye uses squats, dips and pullups. Heck we can't get half the bros to use these exercises! Just saying.

Most successful athletes train harder with weights than the average guy on forums. That is why they look so good, even if they are not a muscle builder per se. The magic is consistency and progression. They have that at some level.

You don't need to tell top level athletes to train consistently like the bros. They understand the importance of that factor. You also don't have to tell them that adding some strength is important. They know that as well.

You know how frustrating it is to beat the drum of simplicity every day, and then have the physique of Hayes - who uses simplicity - posted up like he doesn't lift at all? No, he doesn't use a bro split. yes, he squats and dips. See, simplicity does work.

Well thats what I mean. The whole Idea of bulking up and cutting, doesn't apply to them.
I thought that was the only way to do it (granted there are other variables we've already addressed in my other posts.)

Must be wrong then, though thats what he said in an interview.

How old are you?

David Haye, and other pro athletes look the way they do because they put the work in and because they eat appropriately for what they do.

Any athlete with any appreciable amount of mass (in this case, hayes is small to me at 6'3 210lb), uses weights and/or lots of calisthenics.

Bottom line: You can not avoid the work or the diet.

So he does weight train.


However that still doesn't explain the diet.


Since when are tall black people better adapted to building muscle?
I thought it was more difficult if you were taller for starters.

I guarantee he doesn't eat like this 365 days a year. I guarantee he hasn't eaten like this for the last 10 years.

"I eat 24 egg whites every day, raw, which contain no fat, just protein. I stick them in a glass and swallow them whole, six at a time. I also have four tins of sardines a day."
Even if he did, he's taking in plenty of protein.

This also doesn't address carbs.

Check out this workout:

I guarantee when he was bulking he wasn't eating like a bird on this plan.

Why is he ripped year round then?

I only asked! What is it with people jumping to conclusions thinking I'm looking for an easy way out?

I asked a question because I was curious. That is all.
