Does this not ring of Waterbury's lament of "stuck in the gym" mentality. Soccer players' calves, mechanics' forearms and now daily kicking and squatting . .until systemically ". . .they don't overtrain . . ".
Not in lieu of a day w/ deadlifts or squats under a bar BUT inbetween in a micro- continued stimulus sort of way . . .
And BTW, at 5' 2", the tai fighters would look stupid at 200 lb + legs . .never mind not move.
You've all seen the distend GH guts, etc of our "off season" beauties as they waddle around the gym . . .
Functional muscularity it ain't !
