Good points gents, i thought i might add my opinion.

For these guys in wheelchairs wouldn’t they use their upper body basically ALL day as it is? they’d have solid chests delts and abs from simply getting around – let alone racing in wheelchairs. I know some ppl i’ve seen in wheelchairs seem to be quite well developed in the upper body.

The other thing that comes to mind is would they burn as much energy seeing they don’t walk everywhere? Perhaps this allows them to easily meet caloric requirements.

As for anabolism with squats and deadlifts etc, from personal experience it seems to have made a difference to me, anything further would be merely a guess from me.
