And its not that rare for a young 20 year old male to be freakish strong, just look at the NFL and the rookies that come in every year. Especially the RBs and DEs...

The only reason I even look at Rory threads is to see what Roflcopter is going to say.

Developing that kind of strength isn't as easy as doing squats or running a lot. You're using different muscle groups. If a person took the time to study human anatomy and recognized which muscle groups were most important in successfully executing a takedown. Then, experimented to figure out how to best target and develop those muscle groups to their full potential -- they could probably enjoy a big advantage over others who aren't willing to go to those lengths.
Are you saying that they are doing unconventional exercises? Bodyweight or kettlebells or both? The type of functional strength you get can only really come from bodyweight and kettlebells is what my friend told me.

I mean, what do you consider to be 'functional training'? You talk a big game but you haven't given me my workout routine that Rory does.

If he has a specific workout routine that gives him a considerable edge over his opponents, then there is a reason why random fans in the internet won't be able to tell you what exactly they do. That reason is called "a secret".

And approximately zero percent of those athletes were doughy 160lbers well into adulthood.

I was 145 when I graduated high school at age 18. Now at 26 I'm 200. I must be on roids

From now on, I am convinced A. Silva and Aldo are on roids. Have any of them ever done VADA testing? They're obviously guilty.

I am personally thankful for fighters like Rory paving the way to clean up the sport. One day he'll be looked back upon as one of the first few who let the tests do the talking. We should all owe Rory a debt of gratitude for his strong stance on anti-steroids and hope one day the fishy fighters like Anderson and Aldo step up and take the tests.

I don't know, is this unconventional?-

IIRC, Rory turned pro as a lightweight at 16.

He didn't move up to 170 until he was something like 17-18.

I don't know that his extreme size and weight gain occurred as a result of steroids... Maybe it happened because he was still growing?

The HELL you say?

People don't grow between 18-23, especially if training with one of the best camps in the world. They simply gain a couple pounds because young athletes in growing bodies are very limited to the amount of size they can gain.

I used to think that too.

That if a person lifted weights from a young age it would stunt their growth.

As far as I know, its a myth and its been busted.

Not the best source, but best I could find:
