This Is Your Butt

Sometimes a visual helps


I was trying to explain muscle percentage to a client but it's hard to wrap your mind around. Most women just want to be smaller, and not muscular so they think less is better. It doesn't exactly work like that.

It's hard to quantify what exercise does. We focus so much on weight. But visually side by side, it's easy to see weight is not the end all be all. There is a lot to be said to percentage of muscle and proportions. Things that weight won't account for, but exercise and correct optimal eating can.

The majority of us are visual learners. The girl on the far right has the highest percentage of muscle between the three. That's what it looks like.

To look like The Incredible Hulk, you need a high muscle percentage + mass. With just the right amount of mass and muscle comes the beauty most people chase.

A balanced body is a beautiful body right?

Stop chasing extremes and just focus on balance.
