Interesting subject.
I always had a great chest, way above par yet, when I competed in power, bench was my weakest.
Always had skinny legs but, I always out squatted my weight class by 75-100lbs!

My shoulder width, chest, forearms and calves are my genetic strong points. The negatives? Fat boy tendencies. My shoulders were so wide that my mother had to have a C section. My dad was ecstatic about this, formerly being a star football player, he was thinking, "hell yea, that's going to be a pro football player!" I guess it disappointed him a bit that I wanted absolutely nothing to do with sports at all lol. Before I started lifting, I was already a very strong, very big kid, so even though I was a fat ass, I didn't really get picked on, thankfully.

Pros: My calves would satisfy an Olympia competitor; if I decided to no longer train chest, I'm pretty sure it would find a way to grow on its own ; find it very, very difficult to lose muscle even at very low calories as a natural; above average recovery; unique ability to shove twenty thousand calories into my fat face and still manage to be hungry; when lean, I have a graininess and vascularity a lot of people find appealing; at least don't look like Jason Blaha; average pecker looks bigger on a short guy.

Cons: typical short, fat, wide waisted white guy built more like an actual gorilla than an evolved human being; loose skin from weight loss that is the first thing to fill up with water and make five pounds feel like fifty; bald at 17; everything else about me is a con, really.

I don't know man. The ability to put on muscle is the hardest thing for most people in this sport, that's a big big pro.

Evan Centopani was also a fat kid growing up, and is a tremendous bodybuilder :)

Good question TT.

PROS

Fast metabolism, can drop body fat easily
Look heavier than I weight (whatever that is good for)
Good strength to body weight ratio
Have the mental ability to train intensely
‘Gains’ are muscle not fat
Injuries are very rare
Heal quickly
Require little rest between sets
Up top; nice proportions, nothing stands out
Have lost the desire to get bigger . . .
but could grow fast if so desired (when younger)

CONS

Weak legs (great legs if on woman and if shaved)
Can break easily (think intensity and duration)
Naturally, do not like to eat
Can eat more at a single sitting than most people
Difficult to find clothes to fit upper body comfortably
Small, frail, bone structure
High muscle insertions
Do not store fat overall
Do store fat locally
Never had a desire to step on stage (or draw attention to myself)
Have lost the desire to train intensely
Overall, all things considered, do not have the ‘mass’ to be a bodybuilder

More Cons than Pros.

Back in 1985, Sports Illustrated said I was going to be the next Arnold Palmer. However, damned alligator BIT my hand off! Yeah. tournament down in Florida. I hooked my ball in the rough down by the lake. Damned alligator just POPPED up, cut me down on my prime. He got me, but I tore one of that bastard's eyes out though.
