EVERYONE wants muscles!
I don't care how ridiculous that statement sounds because it's true whether people know it or not.
For people that do any form of physical performance, having a solid, muscular frame built through consistent weight training will give you an advantage in almost every sport or activity. Not to mention the by product of having a decent looking body which has the added effect of improving your own self esteem and hopefully your attractiveness to the opposite sex (or same sex I guess!).
Now how much muscle you have is going to differ from person to person. Not everyone wants to look like Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson but no one can deny that he looks incredible. Some would rather have that lean and ripped look of a Ryan Reynolds but for many, especially strength aficionados that is just too skinny. For ladies, I would guess that top figure and fitness models would be the high end of muscularity and the lower end would be the likes of Jessica Biel who is more 'athletic'. Somewhere in between is where everyone else wants to be.
Now a small minority will want to be ultra thin. Makes no sense. It's unhealthy, you will be weak and you look sick. At the other end of the spectrum and I don't know for sure but I don't think anyone wants to be fat! Also a very small minority wants the extreme muscularity of a high end, professional bodybuilder, male or female. I would guess that even the 70's bodybuilder shape is too much for most guys and that Cory Everson's 80's almost, figure/fitness body may be too much for most girls. However, you can't not admire those physiques.
It makes no difference what level of muscle you want to attain whether it be skinny muscles, massive muscles or somewhere in between. I stand by my original statement - EVERYONE wants muscles!
The amazing Cory Everson.
The equally amazing Serge Nubret
The more attainable physiques of Ryan Reynolds...
...And Jessica Biel.
