    The majority aren’t “pencil thin” standing next to you they’d possibly be the same size, but you miss my point.

    Aren't Skiers and Skaters generally short arses - low centres of gravity.

    It'd pay to have less upper body mass/weight for maneuvering wouldn't it?

    Are you talking about sprint cycle?

    if so then all things being equal their upper body development is significant, their focus on upper body development or bodybuilding would be minimal to nothing their focus whether right or wrong is on producing power to move the bike.

    I have a question for, why do you think dudes like this excell in their respective sports?

    you have this bodybuilding mentality, it’s not the focus of a cyclist to waste time doing exercise to increase their upper body, however their upper body has developed (to a point) because of the work and load placed on their lower body (big large muscles.

    having said that, if they chose to bodybuild their upper body, they’d probably find they’d they’d get bigger very quickly, but the added muscle Tissue would be counter productive.

    what they train grows

    interesting thread...

    I hate squatting. haha. but my best squat in the gym is 200kg...using the high bar position. I cant squat low bar without eventually getting issues with QL. Despite ALOT of effort and time spent trying to rectify the issue....fuck it. Switched permanently to high bar and went from 180 - 200 in a few months haha. Weighed 100kg that day. An ongoing hip flexor issue has prevented further progress LOL. Mostly my fault. That combined with an EPIC fuck tonne of stress this past 12 months has meant basically a 12 month stall...

    also, there is No pressure on my neck, you are not meant to carry THAT high haha.

    quickest way for myself to increase my squat strength is a DUP style setup squatting 3 or more times a week...perfectly doable for anyone sensible enough to set it up right.
