I really really had to laugh at the last question "Do men secretly worry that their outfits make their butts look bigger?" My EX and his brother had no butt to speak of and both would try to pad it with a thick wallet and look sideways in the mirror trying to see if it looked better. (Yeah, they used more hair products and spent more mirror time preparing to go out than I.)
I definitely got some laughs from this article. Great article. I especially liked the part about body image perception. And of course men are just vain as women when it comes to their appearance! And to all the women out there, ST is so critical to our health. Don't worry about "bulking up"!
This article was a pleasure to read - I got some good laughs AND learned some important information. Keep 'em coming! Would love a follow-up article on how woman are becoming such great distance event participants - fat has to be a factor there, don't you think? And you're right - I've seen people who run marathons and may become a smaller version of their basic body type rather than see a change in body shape. Reassuring and surprising...
I like all the points.. I always worried about having bigger lower body compare to upper, usually call as pear but never knew it's more advantage compare to apple! There are also new things I learned from this articles, quite surprising to know that some men probably not easily get bulk up - no wonder one of my friends after lots and lots of strength workouts, got defined but not excessive muscular body. And the part about body image, couldn't find any reason to disagree!
