Skipped Leg Day … or did he?

  • by

Bodybuilders and strength trainers like to make fun of “peg-leg” bodybuilders, and rightly so. Only working out chest and arms is not only stupid but its not healthy.

So, who is the athlete here? Clearly the humungous upper body, right? Think again! The legs belong to the winner of the Boston Marathon! He is an incredible athlete and is a LOT healthier than the bodybuilder whose upper body is shown!
