No ifs, ands or butts when it comes to ranking men's muscles


Everyone has a different favorite muscle they notice first on a guy.

Now we take a look at the ones mentioned most in a new men's health study.

Coming in at No. 1, and some would say it's pretty obvious, is six-pack abs.

According to the study, many women said that a man could have biceps the size of bowling balls, but if you've got the beginnings of a gut, some would think twice before considering you boyfriend material.

And it's not the only chiseled body part on the list.

At No. 2, women see strong forearms and according to this study think that a man can do anything, like build a house, move a small car, or keep you safe from a possible attacker.

Now of those women surveyed, most had a lot to say about shoulders.

Sculpted shoulders came in at No. 3.

Many said broad shoulders are a sign of strength and masculinity and make the whole look when combined with a broad back.

And if you are wondering where the V-shaped torso came in? Well, a broad back came in fourth.

Interestingly enough, the largest muscle wasn't mentioned.

That's the glutes.

So we guess that means no ifs, ands or butts.
