NMMR: Muscle size poll -- kind of an XP from H&F

There was a poll on muscle size on Health & Fitness.  I'd be interested to see how the answers here compare to the answers from the H&F crowd.

What do you think of her body?

  • Probably a smidge bigger muscles than I'd want, but her body is pretty much amazeballs.

    This.

  • Obviously she's super fit, but her arms are a bit TOO toned, IMO.

    Agree.  I don't want to look as manly as my husband but I wouldn't be complaining if I looked like that.

  • Little more muscle than I want (but just a little) her body though his pretty smok'n.
  • Manly. This type of look is NMS and not something I'd strive to achieve.

  • I think she looks great.  Maybe a bit too muscly, but I would still rather have her body than my own.

  • I wouldn't complain if I were to wake up with this body. To get picky, I think dude biceps on a chick are weird and gross.

  • Her arms are too muscley for my tastes but she does look good.

    I'm with you -- she definitely should be proud of it, but it is definitely bulkier/more manly than I'd want to be.

  • I would not want to be that bulky.

  • Much too muscular for me.  I can appreciate a well toned athletic body, but this is just too bulky for me.
  • She's a little bulkier than I would like to be.  However, I wouldn't be upset if I looked like this:

  • I think her body is perfect.

    If my SO didn't like me being more fit/cut than they are, they better step up their game!

    She looks exactly how I would want to look - and I am so far.  So, so far.  Crying

     

     

  • A little too built up for my tastes.  If I put her and me together and split it down the middle I would look great though. 
  • I think those arm muscles make her boobs look weird. 
  • Honestly, it is her chest and stomach that are too cut for my taste, I don't think her arms are bad.  So, no, I wouldn't strive for this body.
  • i think she looks great, but my DH would say that is too muscular.

  • Too bulky/masculine, both in her arms and her midsection. 

    The photo count the stars posted is a nice amount of muscle.  Definitely toned but not so bulky.  She's still slim and has a waist. Although maybe still a bit too much definition - maybe 20% less would be perfect.  And the saddest part is, I could probably attain something close to that.  I have the time, and access to the proper equipment.  I just don't do it.  Sad.

    I think the original pic is a smidge too buff. The above pic would be perfect for me.

    this.  DH prefers a "softer" look (his words).  I would LOVE to be that cut. She looks amazing!

    This is much more in line with what I'd like to look like.

  • I like the boxer pic better, too.

  • Ditto Kore, it's NMS. For me personally, I just want to be fit and a little bit toned to be happy. Thank goodness my DH likes me a little bit thick and juicy. This is part of the reason why I love him. Lol.

  • I think she looks super fit, but I wouldn't want to look like that.  I like my curves.  I'd like to be a tad more toned, but that would be too much for me.  
  • I think she looks great. I can't imagine what kind of gym time that would take. I have some VERY fit/strong friends and they're not that cut.

    I would prefer something like this. I'm not a big fan of big muscles.

  • A little too muscular for me, but I'd take it ;)

  • I agree, a little too much bulk for me. I feel like women who are really muscular somehow lose their curves? Start to look more square. I would love to be thinner than I am, but without losing curves and 'softness'.
    image
  • If my options were that or what I have now (well, pre-pg) then I choose that hands down! But ideally, a little less in the arm muscles.  Although I am pretty sure if my arms were that jacked I could beat DH in arm wrestling - and that would be fun at least once.  Any more then that, I think would really hurt his ego Stick out tongue
