Nothing to do with "comparing to other people". All about maximizing self, potential, and also enjoying certain training styles (and picking the brain of masters).
Yes I only post on CT cause frankly his stuff rocks, has given me results (been following his work for 10 yrs) and he's adaptive/brilliant, pragmatic, and sane (more can be said of other "bodybuilders"/coaches or even other subforums here).
Besides he says he's all about using new training tools, fixing problems, and trying new ways of training.
I don't see why advanced bodyweight (weighted calisthenics, ringwork) is a taboo q to ask, especially as many old timers/physical culturalists reap mass benefits from this on top of weight lifting/"bodybuliding" work.
And he trains athletes from 28+ sports...MMA, wrestlers, field atheltse etc...how could moving your body through space not be helpful?
I'm not asking CT on why not just use light band pump work, or ART, or yoga stretching to MAXIMIZE GAINS lol...because it probably wont' work and I don't enoy it. But weighted bodyweight/ring work has produced amazin gains for me so I try to get some insight from the master
But I'm reading the air here, and CT seems annoyed so of course he can choose not to respond, if so I'll stop asking, for a year or two at least until CT reviists gymnastics lol
