I think being big and stocky is good for the gym, but in regular clothes, long and lean looks a whole lot better.
It is the same as sprinters...depends how youve trained your fibers...slow twitch fibers will use muscle for energy and you'll be small, faster twitch fibers as trained by sprinters,
Short distance guys will be bigger and bulky.
