Side note- apparently in Sci-Fi movies the occurrence of a third boob is more common than a third eye-ball…..
Sorry, I just can’t shake the Arnold references this week. And the image of Arnold’s eye balls popping out on Mars is forever seared in my brain. I do, however, have a point here. I know…it’s a shocker. Fortunately, it’s not that I’ve grown a third boob. I am, however, starting to notice a second set. Yep, that would be four boobs….and I’m not an alien. The human body is so confusing. On a guy, bigger pecs are great. They make them look strong and in shape.
I know, not every looks like Arnold, but you get the idea….
But put big pecs on a woman….and you get odd-ball armpit swelling that occurs about 3 inches above your actual boobs. Hence, the four boob effect.
Here are some extreme examples.
(This actually is a man…if you can’t tell)
Her second set is hiding down below.
If you can get past the gigantor shoulders, you can see that she’s sporting four as well.
Okay, so maybe it doesn’t really look like you have four boobs. But there is a presence that starts to develop in one’s chest that is significantly higher than the average boob. I noticed it yesterday when I happened to be doing bicep curls in front of a mirror (one of two mirrors in the entire gym…unlike anytime fitness’ mirror encrusted walls). I was watching my form to make sure that I wasn’t swinging the bar or using my back. I’m awful at curls so I’m frequently guilty of doing both. Apparently my chest was engage (so I’m also not very good at figuring out which muscles are involved in which exercises, sue me), because I could see two protrusions that made my actual boobs look like a sad after thought further down on my chest. It also made me look like my sports bra was horribly ill-fitting. Oh well, I suppose there are worse problems to have….
Additionally, my sternum once again feels like it’s going to crack at any moment. Dips…..they hurt. Avoid them if at all possible- my words of wisdom for the day.
