Well, those were very good analogies given. I would just like to point out a few things. "Back in the day". meaning prior to the late 60's, there really were not many divisions. Most people trained with both "exercises " and "lifts of the day", at that time it was mainly the C and P, Cand J, Snatch, Squat, BP, DL and various compound moves as "exercises", all done with both BB's and DB'sThe guys/gals that like the O lifts did them a bit more often, and those that liked the Odd lifts (now known as the powerlifts), did them more often, and those into bodybuilding did more exercises than lifts. All were terribly strong and fit, and only specialization before contests separated them. A good case in point was Tommy Kono, who won Mr. American, and won medals in four different weight classes in OL. 10 years ago, I was living in Hawaii, Pearl Harbor, where he was in charge of of Parks and Rec, and he was setting up a recreational trail, along the shores of Waikii for both tourists and locls, where you would walk/run/jog along, and then go into stations, where you could P br dip, pull up/ tire run , use the overhed hand ladder, and many other things. Point being, they all compliment each other, and it's a shame that they have all diverged.
