View Full Version : Bicep question

why do boxers have huge biceps? what do they do?

I know some lift weights, but some don't and they have massive biceps.

another question, I tend to have smaller biceps, but I can rip off 30 pull ups (not chins, pull ups) and curl 50 lb dumbells 3x8 (not a big deal for the big guys, but i'm only 5'6 126 lbs) My biceps however, don't look big at all.

I heard some guy say it has something to do with how close the bicep is to the joint of your arm, any truth to this?

I think it just comes down to genetics and, of course, whether or not you do exercises to target the bicep specifically.

ive also heard it has to do with how close your bicep is to the joint... especially with arm wrestling.

lighter guys just dont bulk up the same, even if you look at the championship fighters in the lighter weight classes you still wont see huge biceps. This actualy works as an advantage, having 18" biceps would slow you down
