Big Arms, Small Legs? It's all good...

Big arm muscles can be a thing of beauty. But sometimes, you get caught up at marveling at your loaded guns and completely forget that you have leg muscles too. Take for example, this dude:

Big Arms, Small Legs
Besides the hat, what is the deal with those socks?

The above is a fairly common sight in the gym and has been called a lot of things - Small Wheels, Leg Day Skipper, Out of Symmetry Man, Johnny Bravo Worship, Chicken Legs Syndrome, and many others. It gets pretty rough but it just means that you have a killer upper body and a lower body that makes you... weird looking.

But you know what I think about all this? IT'S ALL GOOD...

I mean, c'mon, who cares? As long as you keep your legs at optimum health wherein you could properly support your upper body, who cares about how it looks? For those who like to pick on other people's lifting habits, I got something to say to you people: JUST WORRY ABOUT YOUR DAMN SELF. I think it is pathetic to judge other people when you need plenty of work yourself. 

Here are some things to consider when you have Small Wheels...

The upper body is the first thing people see

We have talked about this in the previous posts. It is a no-brainer. Building your arm and chest muscles is more practical because of the visibility factor. The amount of stress that your legs experience from carrying your huge upper body is enough of a workout.

You can still be pretty intimidating even with Chicken Legs

Don't mock my legs
Yeah, that's what I thought, puny being

Most females don't really care about leg muscles

Those with the Johnny Bravo legs are going to get action just like anyone else, not because they look like Johnny Bravo specifically, but because they have big biceps or huge guns in general. Point is: if you are working out your muscles to get chicks, all you need to work on is your guns and chest. I just laugh at the thought of people doing squats to get chicks.

No one would even notice when you are wearing pants.

Pants are your best friend when you have the Chicken Leg Syndrome. No one needs to see those. You should have a motto: Shorts are for queers. Besides, when you have enormous legs, it is hard to find pants or even shorts that will fit.

For what it's worth, I am all for a balanced muscle structure. But when it comes down to it, I'd rather go with this:

Big Arms, Chicken Legs

than this:

Puny upper Body, Huge Lower Body
