    i read one of christophers sticky posts and it was stated that muscles dont really tone...they either grow or shrink.

    how come guys who work out alot have hard muscles as to some guys who have really soft muscles that are small. shuoldnt they all be hard then?

    also, take a big guy who doesnt work out...just a big boned guy. if he shredded up would look just as developed as a guy who is 20 lbs lighter and is shredded? his muscles would be smaller but more developed. so isnt there such thing as muscles changing shape?

    How can a muscle be "smaller but more developed?" This thread makes me want to cut my wrists the long way.

    ive worded this completely the wrong way and i apologize. let me ask another question...

    they say that muscle doesnt change shape right? it either grows or shrinks. larger muscles smaller muscles. now correct me if i am wrong. does that mean that higher rep exercise just makes those muscles bigger via sarcoplasmic whatever and lower rep just makes you stronger?
    so if a person is shooting for size dont they want to do higher rep?
