In addition to the ESPN droolfest over Michigan this week(can't complain), they posted this pic of Mike Martin. http://espn.go.com/espn/thelife/gallery/?id=4469925&image=1 Obviously, he's number 68. I knew he was big but DAMN I never realized he was this big. Look at those triceps, and those hamstrings!!! I have never seen arms that big on a Michigan player, they look like popeye arms!!!
Mike Martin is REALLY big (pic, but sadly not MS paint)
He is one big fella. Thanks for the post.
are actually gastrocnemius muscles, otherwise known as calves. The hamstring is a tendon. They (hopefully) don't bulge. Or you have problems.
Sorry teldar but the Hamstring is the common name for the group of muscles on the back of your thigh, opposite the quadriceps. The semitendonosus, the semimembranosus, and the biceps femoris.
check your reading comprehension
Just out of curiosity, why should I check my reading comprehension?
I was confused by this, too.
The hamstring pulls the tibia towards the femur, and is the equivalent of the biceps in the arm. If you're a bodybuilder, you do want this muscle to "bulge". First time I've seen hamstring referring to only the tendons behind the knee, and not the muscle as well...
Because when Teldar said, "Those hamstrings are actually gastrocnemius muscles, otherwise known as calves" he was being sarcastic, I think.
I guess I mean check your sarcasm meter.
but I after re-reading that post a bunch of times I don't detect even the slightest hint of sarcasm. If that was the intent, than teldar should give "Internet Sarcasm for Dummies" a quick read.

"In human anatomy, a hamstring refers to one of the three posterior thigh muscles, or to the tendons that make up the borders of the space behind the knee. In modern anatomical contexts, however, they usually refer to the posterior thigh muscles." BOOM Wikipediad'ed!
Does that mean you're both right?
muscles attach to bones by "becoming" tendons at the point where they insert onto the bone. the tendons move the leg by using the larger part of the muscle for mechanical force
hamstrings can "bulge" - think what squats build.
Your anatomy teacher should be fired.
well they do bulge there. further down the thigh, down by the popliteal fossa (back of the knee) do they really become tendons. (not that it's that important)
I think he's sexy too.
Big Will is the centerpiece of that image. Can't wait to see him get some playing time soon.
I love that about Mike Martin. I mean how big he is and all.
due to the awsomeness of barwis training, chocolate milk, and beating nd the m lockerroom has many more bulges this year than last (schwing!!)
