Superb Opinion

  • Isn't it obvious? They tend to have low body fat in general (oops, there go the boobs), but large leg muscles, of which the gluteus maximus is a part of. They also tend to have thick, muscular thighs but comparatively thin arms - because their arms get much less use.

    It's also, for example, why swimmers have thick neck and shoulder muscles - because most of their propulsion comes from their arms rather than their legs, and the shoulders are the major pivot point - when most other athletes don't.

    There's also the issue that, if your body type doesn't match your sport, it's going to be harder for you to compete, and so it's much less likely that you'll be successful - and so you're likely to quit and find a sport that's a better fit, or find a different activity altogether. A girl with huge boobs isn't going to be able to compete well in track & field events, so she'd probably do something else, just as a short guy isn't nearly as likely to be an NBA player.

  • Isn’t that obvious? The physical conditioning they do to keep themselves in “top shape” which is a thinner body style In itself usually has that effect, I love petite girls with small boobs and nice butts that aren’t huge like that but that’s not very relevant for this response

  • I think women built to be an athlete usually are built like that naturally, plus working out can grow your butt, not your boobs. I have an athletic body, I could be a ballerina, sprinter or gymnast but instead I do pole dancing, for some reason we are born flat chested but we have bootay.

  • The squats and other exercises make the butt appear rounder and bigger and the muscle gain thins out the fatty tissue in the breast.

  • They’re muscular with low body fat.

  • Lots of muscle, and not having a couple of kilos bouncing around in front both help to make you faster.

  • Squats

  • Imagine that Girl running with huge tits shaking up and down, oh no she will be slow. Big tits probably would make her fall. So they make it small.

    • How can someone make their breasts small without surgery?

  • It’s like that for a lot of ladies that workout a lot doing squats a lot

  • Gluteus maximus.
    It's a sport that is mostly about running. Butt muscles help you run. Boobs inhibit running.
    It's science...

    • Cross country champion here.. high school and college.. n I have big boobs. I will say, im one of the few that I had seen during my time running.

    • @Imcmullan fair enough. I'll admit my response was a little flippant. You certainly are the exception to the rule. So you may have boobs, would you wear double sports bras to help contain the weight displacement? And you do have to have a firm tush. You simply couldn't run distance unless you had the associated musculature to support it.

    • Oh yes, I used to work out 3hrs a day.. n leg n glutes were a must.. you're right , muscle is key. N yes , I wore 2 sports bras n still do when I work out.. it sucks n it slowed me down but I have a love for running n I think everyone should do it bc it's so therapeutic! I would hear people say all the time , how do u run with DD boobs n even people who haven't met me would be shocked when they see me show up at meets.. they never thought, I was the girl who was winning all the time.

  • I think I've seen this question already but it's pretty self explanatory, muscles and fat

  • because ass grows with muscle and tits shrink with lack of body-fat xD

  • the muscles in the ass make them look good but tits are filled with body fat which disappears if your a runner or a swimmer

  • That's a big butt?

  • Because they are athletic.

  • Same reason why gymnasts have small breasts. It is because Bob size is smaller in those who are heavily invested in and skilled in athletics

  • They run a lot, so they have a lot of leg and butt muscle. Big boobs are bad for performance when running and make it painful to run.

  • Their sport helped them shape those muscles and they don't all have small breast. They're usually almost always wearing a compression sports top which pretty much smooshes their breasts against their body for support. That makes their breast look smaller.

  • Omg... Are you dumb?

  • Because they know most guys are ass man :)))

  • exercise... and weight loss... = bigger Glutes and smaller pecs

  • Muscles and running a lot burns fat from the body. Women usually lose fat from their breast when they begin exercising at a high level. Not always, but breasts usually seem to be the first place the body removes fat from when women are in a fat burning mode.
