Hey Joe. I’m wondering if you have a favorite body part, either in terms of training or appearance.
Truthfully, I love all body parts. It makes sense though, doesn’t it? I mean, I’m sometimes referred to as the father of modern bodybuilding and bodybuilding is, after all, about building the entire body.
But I realize that you’re looking for something a little more tangible than this answer. So, if I really think about it I would say that nothing beats a good pair of arms when it comes to impressing me. When bodybuilders come to my office in Woodland Hills, California I’ll often ask them to roll up their sleeve and show me an arm. That to me is the truest mark of a powerful man.
Maybe it’s because we see exposed arms so often that when someone with a massively developed pair comes along the difference is so dramatic. Possibly it’s because muscular arms have come to symbolize strength in all forms, from WWII depictions of Uncle Sam and Rosie the Riveter with their sleeves rolled up. Even the Arm & Hammer logo is of an arm that’s obviously performed a few sets of curls and pushdowns in its day.
So, whether you’re a bodybuilder or merely someone interested in being fit, to me it never hurts to be well-armed.
