I've attended many NHL games, and a friend of mine has a cousin who is married to a pro hockey player, although he plays for European teams (not NHL). Anyways, we hang sometimes, and I notice he's a skinny-ish looking guy with a little muscle, but he weighs close to 200 lbs.!
He is not too tall -- maybe 5'11" or 6' -- and has a barrel chest with thin arms and large quads. I am around the same size and have built arms and a more overall muscular frame, and I'm 174 lbs.!
Where is he hiding those extra 20+ lbs. if he's neither much fatter, taller, nor more muscular?
Seriously, I've flexed and seen him flex and his arms are maybe 14" and he has not much muscle -- mostly just a big chest and quads -- but is pretty skinny everywhere else.
He weighed in at around 197 lbs. for his team weigh in a few months back, I believe. I can even show you a picture of him and how narrow he looks. Is this some kind of inside secret?
As you can see he's not a buff guy -- a little build, but nothing too serious. He's not too strong either.
He also has a flat stomach (no abs), but just overall looks like a skinny guy.
If I bulked to that size I'd look fat! Or I'd be need to be twice as muscular.
I mean I'm a hockey player (not pro), but I can't fathom where he keeps that extra weight.
