I'm trying to prove that bodyweight exercises don't build true strength.

    you are talking about doing bodyweight exercises as in just your body right? pushups and what not? Not exercises using your bodyweight like squatting with your bodyweight on the bar.

    I'd say there are more examples of it building strength then not.

    im just saying that be able to do a lot of push-ups doesn't correlate with your bench press numbers or anything, right?

    No shit.

    Gymnasts are more concerned about actually being strong than looking like it.


    I read somewhere that the average gymnast can bench twice his body weight the first time he goes to the bench!

    I agree with that....

    in my opinion if you have not competed or training for a comp within the next year you are just a gym rat

    yea but you have already let it all hang out on the platform




    edit: so if you have competed and take a year or so off from training you are still a PL'er.....but if you are "training" for your first comp in 2-3 years you are jsut a gym rat in my eyes

    Being a gym rat is better than being a couch potato.
