    They are not. They are not Arnold proportions but they don' want be that big. Arnold was godly not too massive like today builders. Arnold arms 2 inch bigger than calves people say they should be equal I disagree I think 2 nch difference is ideal no more.

    i am in my 40s and lift 4x a week. I get all my protein from food, and make sure I have it at every meal. Shakes make me fat, and raise my Bp and cholesterol. The hardest thing to do is to get lean muscle mass. That’s why most guys in the gym that look big, really only have good arms. They also have bellies. For health reasons I’m going leaner now.

    It makes sense if you think about it.

    As long as it's made of protein, your body can convert it to whatever type of protein it needs... because it technically already has to do that anyway. Whey, soy, and beef protein isn't human muscle protein.

    Yeah, that's what happens when you have cuts and visible veins.

    I've never understood people that shit on lean, muscular guys. That's the hardest thing to pull off. It's much easier to be the typical pudgy lifter at the gym that's heavy and has muscle but also a damn gut and love handles.

    As mentioned you can legs with dumbbells. Running is great for endurance but does nothing for strength.

    If you don't want to be big and bulky just don't overeat.

    Well those specific guys in the pic are obviously on gear, except for the middle one. But in general I hear criticism of lean muscular dudes, even the ones that are clearly natty.

    So you take the easier route (eat like shit, ignore cardio), and you shit on dudes that sacrifice a little more? GTFO

    Nah not really if anything I agree with you, I'll take being lean over fat and flabby but 'big' every day of the week
    That's my day to day battle to be honest that fine balance between loosing all muscle and looking skinny but still looking decent

    It gets to the point where you just wanna hop on the sauce
