Athletes You Are Probably Stronger Than

Sports aren’t all about brute force—different athletic contests demand different kinds of ability and physical prowess from participants.

But a common perception among people, particularly those unfamiliar with sports, is that all athletes you meet are strong, power-packed purveyors of brute force.

And when I say “strong,” I mean it in a very narrow and conventional sense of the term—easily capable of putting up more weight than you at the gym.

Not all athletes are built like an ice chest, however, and they don’t all look like superior specimens of strength and muscle.

The following pro athletes have muscles that won’t bend steel and leave you feeling like an inferior life-form in the weight room.

They’re not weak. They’re not “un-athletic.”

But they’re the athletes you might be stronger than, and they need a spotter, too.
