I was perusing the world wide web yesterday and came across a pretty sweet post on another bloggers' page. This guy, Steve, read an article comparing a 40-year old triathletes legs, a 70 year old triathletes legs, and a 74 year old sedentary persons legs. The images are pretty interesting, as well as the actual article that go along with the images. If you just want to see the images, here they are:
|This is a view as if the legs were cut off mid-thigh and you are looking straight at them, with the white dot in the middle being the femur. Think "ham".|
The blog where I found this photo, and part of the article is Steve in a Speedo.
