Obviously this thread isn’t particularly serious, but why are casual gym goers, specifically “men”, obsessed with their chest?
Let’s face it, Monday = Chest day, which just so happens to be the day of the week all the slackers make their weekly “come backs”.
Also, whenever a co-worker convinces me to let them tag along at the gym they always want to bench first.
I can understand people’s dislike for training legs, but when has a big chest become the cornerstone of a “manly” physique? If I had to guess which body part epitomized a masculine physique (you know: if I were stuck on an island and could only pick one … ) I would have answered “wide and thick shoulders” (with a ‘back’ coming a close second).
And before some of you get your panties in a bunch, from a bodybuilding standpoint I realize that all body parts are equally as important and that you should focus on your lagging muscle groups. Yeah… I get it. But I’m not talking about bodybuilders, I’m talking about regular joes.
