The benefits of "Gym Muscle"
GYM MUSCLE (by Alwyn Cosgrove, C.S.C.S.)
Let's say you can pass my pushup test- that doesn't mean you're above bodyweight training. Gymnasts train with their own weight almost exclusively and often have better bodies and strength levels than your average bodybuilder or weightlifter. That's especially incredible when you bear in mind that their sport isn't at all based on body aesthetics or max lifts. According to Nick Grantham, C.S.C.S., former conditioning coach for the Great Britain Olympic Gymnastics team, after years of body-weight training alone, the majority of male gymnasts are able to bench press double their body weight the first time they ever slide under a bar. If that doesn't prove the efficacy of body-weight training, nothing will.
