What is your source on this. Are you saying that generally weightlifters are slower than gymnast and fighters? Because my understanding of weightlifting is that it takes great power to do the Olympic lifts thus weightlifters are not only strong but incredibly fast relative to their bodyweight.Patrick wrote:
Weightlifters, by the very nature of their sport are speed-limited (RELATIVE to a gymnast or fighter) due to the super heavy load (barbell).
Gymnasts and fighters, by the very nature of their sport are strength-limited (RELATIVE to a weightlifter) due to the relatively light "loads" (their BODIES) being handled.
Please explain it in even simpler terms. I only exercise for recreation so this a bit over my head. Thanks.
