I'm not getting "hung up" on terms, you are. Your argument is BASED on the word strength. Do you even read your own posts?. Fact: Most gymnasts are LIGHT guys, I doubt there are many that are near the 200 pounds mark because that would be detrimental towards their goals.
A very important aspect not realized here is that there is a relatively long learning curve on the advanced gymnastic exercises. Just because that fact alone, why would bodybuilders want most of their program to revolve around gymnastic exercises?
For hypertrophy, gymnastic exercises are not, and will never be, as effective as traditional exercises. Which is why the original statement of they will only take you so far is correct since I would think you wouldn't have to make it obvious when you post that he's referring to bodybuilding considering that this is a BODYBUILDING website.
