Another way of looking at it...
Succesful gymnasts have large biceps because it takes good genetics to have the potential to do what they do, and a lot of that genetically is fulness of muscle body, strength, and lastly size.
A guy won a scientific award for discovering what they call 'the strength gene', which makes muscle much denser/stronger than normal. Every olympic athlete tested, has this gene.
Obviously they work hard, but like most guys, we have strong and weak parts. My chest always responds, but my legs don't.
Guys in competition will be weeded out unless they have superior 'everything'. Olympic athletes are weeded out from across the world.
