What types of athlete, due to the unique demands of their sport, develop the most unusual physique?

Well, for the starters, that’s quite an unusual question in itself. Interesting but unusual!

I believe any sport that includes more work of one (or limited) body part, the athletes there are bound to have an unusual physique… Sports that includes extra exertion on one (or limited) body part… Sports that don’t demand full-body workout and force.

For example, arm wrestling.

The entire sport revolves around the arm. So most of the arm wrestlers will have bigger arms than the rest of the population… 

Here, this is Jeff Dabe, also known as Minnesota’s ‘Popeye’.

He is an arm-wrestling champion.

His arms are very big…

And so are his fingers…

Cyclists are another group that has the unusual physique. Their legs are big and very muscly…

Since their work usually includes extra exertion on legs, their legs get out of proportion to their entire body.

So, as mentioned, any sport that demands more work from one part of the body, most of the athletes there will have the unusual physique.

This is contrary to sports like MMA, wrestling, cricket, football, hockey, swimming and more where you require your whole body fitness – you need every part of your body. So, these athletes are usually physically uniform.

Hope this answers your question.
