Do people really believe, as the comment I’ll reproduce below, that having muscle mass is harmful to sports performance? In most sports, muscle serves as a nice layer of protection - a shock absorber of sorts. Have someone punch the softest part of your body. Then have them punch your muscles. Big difference, 'eh?
Anyhow, the comment prompting this was this: [quote]Kaz wrote: It’s Official. We (sports performance) have lost Christian forever. I knew it was leaning that way, but now I know for sure. Soooo[/quote]
The implication is that someone worried about sports performance should not have big biceps.
Do people really believe this? I am not being sarcastic. I’ve found muscle to great improve sports performance.
Do others disagree? Or is commenter involved in a sport like ballet where bigger biceps won’t help him out?
