Wow, I guess the stats are wrong, I am the only pudgy person in America and everyone is built like Stallone. I did not realize my fit problems were so unusual.
I hardly think 12% bodyfat is "Adonis"-like, although on the upper end of athletic. Â If I had to take a crack as to why, I believe the nature of what this board is about is the reason. Â This board is about people who are trying to improve their image through outfitting with very high quality clothing. Â I would think that particular interest also transcends into other things in a members' life. Â For instance regular diet and exercise ultimately improves health but one of the additional benefits is improving how one looks. In the movie Pumping Iron (George Butler, 1975), Arnold Schwarzenegger was being interviewed as to what bodybuilding was all about. Â He compared it to sculpting. Â With a sculptor, when he wants to change something on the sculpture he adds a bit of clay here or there. Â In bodybuilding the person trains to get that extra bit of shoulder size where the clay would go. Â It's just a harder process. Good clothes inspires self confidence the same as exercise has shown to. Separately aside regarding BMI. Â Outside of a lazy way to determine obesity levels on society (separate from athletes), as previously mentioned, it is supposed to be a determiner regarding diseases such as cancer, heart disease, etc. Â I can't categorically believe that to be true either for the athletic category of test subjects. Finally, I am definitely a slow runner. Â How did the argument get to a point where I had to consider chasing anyone to begin with? Â That's what needs to be avoided. Â
