    Some people are strong and don't look muscular, others are weak and look very muscular. I'd tend to say that the second category has better genetics than the first, but in the end doesn't that mean that people in the first category don't just have a better nervous system that can take anything?

      I'm completely the opposite lol, I've already got advanced level performance in my legs but I'm still a novice in my upper body. Obviously there's an element of genetics involved, but it would be interesting to dig deeper and find out more.

          How do you explain it?

            genetics. i believe leg strength is more practical and superior to being top heavy. but being top heavy is nice for general aesthetics

              I think it's a bad sign to have legs as a strong point, don't you? I've been told that androgen receptors are mainly located in the upper body, more specifically in the shoulders and trapezius, so if you're not very receptive to the upper it would seem to indicate low testosterone or shot androgen receptors, for example. Is this broscience? I don't know.

                leg strength is far more practical than upper body strength. upper body looks good for aesthetics. i admire the squat bros at my gym.

                Yes, but most of us are interested in aesthetics, so from that point of view it's rather negative.

                it's a "the grass is greener on the otherside" situation. plus the squat bros have HUGE dicks (my guess) where as im just a small 6in/16cm at my absolute hardest.

                overall, i rate squat bros to have the superior setup vs top heavy bros.

                I don't think that people with upper body as a strength point are angry or jealous at those with a lower body strength point, they're quite happy to dodge the leg sessions and apart from some internet users who are a bit fussy on this subject, in real life they'll get compliments and they "shine" at the gym. The main problem is that the legs are a much less visible part of the body than the upper body, and they're not considered to be aesthetically pleasing or appealing. It's just seen as a lack of balance to have a swollen upper body and a non-existent lower body, sometimes a source of ridicule, but don't worry, guys with muscular upper bodies and non-existent legs will get a lot more compliments than non-existent upper bodies guys

                i know. i train my legs too. i know upper body bros are visually appealing but squat bros can build upper body too, it just takes longer.

                It all depends on your morphology as well. For me, I have the combination of short legs (which probably explains why legs are a strength for me, as I have favorable levers for Squats, and less mass to fill since they're short) and a long abdomen, which means I'll never have the 'bulging chest' effect (sometimes perceived as caricatural and showy) that most people in the gym have.

                Let's be clear: when I go to the gym, I feel like I always see the same body types. Whether people are short or tall, they have a compact, bulging upper body and long, slim, often non-existent legs. It's quite frustrating to see because, for example, these guys probably weigh less than me but appear 'heavier' due to their morphology. What difference does it make if they weigh less than me for a better appearance? It means that to try to achieve their appearance, I would have to weigh more than them, thus requiring more bulk (which is annoying for someone like me who doesn't enjoy eating).

                Honestly, the only advantage I see in my case is perhaps (and even then, it remains to be proven) that I may be less prone to injury. And it's true that so far I've had 0 injuries and very few pains (which have been more due to my clumsiness than anything else). Let's try to console ourselves with that

                >more practical
                For what? Maybe in the olden days, or for most sports.

                Ironically, an aesthetic physique is more "functional" to your life (confidence, gets more respect from other men, attraction from women) than a "functional" physique/training methodology

                My 87 year old grandmother can walk around with little to no issues.

                Running will be 100x more transferable to real life running.

                + Any situation in which you need to run in real life will require distance running, rather than sprinting.
