Am I too fat and/or tall to do these things?

– Will having a certain body type help you get these skills faster? Yes. Should you give up because you don’t have the body of an Olympic gymnast. Hell No.

    Here’s a picture of Bert Assirati.

    This guy weighed 240 lbs (~109 kg) but was able to do three one arm chin-ups, as well as an iron cross. And as you can see by the picture, he was also quite an impressive acrobat!

    And here is Jim Holloway.

    This guy is a rock climbing legend, and at 6’6″ (~198 cm) is a good foot taller than most gymnasts. Yet, he is recorded as having held a front lever for 20 seconds, possibly a minute.

    What excuse can there be after seeing guys like this??
