While I agree with Angus that this is most likely just for his homework I’m curious as to whether this even has a true answer. I guess it is typically answered based on a newborn baby? Or a male that doesn’t really exercise at all? Otherwise wouldn’t certain things vary person to person.
I mean even determining how to classify a muscle based on size? Lats are biggest by surface area but Glutes are biggest by mass.
Then on smaller muscles I imagine its even more difficult because not only would you have to determine what you mean by largest but also depends entirely on a person’s training.
If there was an answer I imagine it would be pretty easy to find but I really don’t think there is one. I mean look at Biceps vs Calves it would completely depend on a person’s training and genetics.
I’m completely speculating on this but would love to hear someone that is 100% sure.[/quote]
No, you’re absolutely right. There is no correct answer to this question…which implies that it is not for a class but for his own misguided understanding of his own body and training.
My forearms are bigger than some people’s calves. Human beings are not carbon copies of one another.
Beginners need biology books, gym time several times a week, and the sense to follow those who have actually made the most progress.[/quote]
