Building the Gymnastic Body. The Science of Gymnastics Strength Training

We have all seen them on television during the Olympics; these massive powerful men performing amazing skills with ease and grace. Watching them perform, the question inevitably arises – are they as powerful as they appear to be? And the answer quite simply is – yes.
What will probably be even more surprising to you is that they build their strength and physiques almost entirely with various bodyweight exercises. There are of course some supplemental exercises where weights are utilized (i.e. weighted leg lifts), however the central premise remains; these amazing athletes have built the vast majority of their strength and power through the use of bodyweight conditioning
The list of physical training requirements is long and can be rather daunting to prepare a world class athlete: passive flexibility, active flexibility, joint preparation, static strength, dynamic strength etc. etc. and in the past has only been interesting in detail to those of us involved with the physical preparation of champions.
