Do all bodybuilders and wrestlers have large chins/jaws?

    I'm having trouble finding a bodybuilder with a weak chin and/or jaw. Do you think this is because of anabolic androgenic steroids, human growth hormone, or other body enhancing drugs? Or do you think people with large chins/jaws are just genetically prone to being in such macho sports? Any other possible causes?

    It's because they're always fighting and getting hit in the jaw, so it's always swollen.

    HGH does account for some bone growth, but I think it's more typically seen in a neanderthal brow or enlarged knuckles.

    I actually don't think it has anything to do with jaw muscles, its the actual jaw bone that seems extremely "strong".

    Leanness makes bone attributes more prominent, and lean folks appear less "smooth" as compared to fat folks.

    Very, very, very few folks take enough HGH, and most lack the gene, to have acromegaly. In those folks that have the gene for it, acromegaly occurs in about 6 in 100,000 humans, with, or without, exogenous GH.

    AAS don't promote bone features other than leanness, balanced fat distribution, and increased muscle mass.

    Some folks, endomorphic somatypes, have larger bones and rounder features. Fat folks are smooth because of the excess fat that they carry. Other folks, ectomorphic somatypes, have longer, and smaller bones, and, sometimes, more jutting features. In either case, when they're lean and healthy, those bone features become more apparent.

    For TMJ muscles, in particular, sometimes, folks chew gum (yes, gum), or clinch their teeth when lifting, which gives them muscle tone as compared to their sedentary counter parts. They look younger, longer.

    Understand, healthy folks won't have smooth lines.

    As a point of note: United Health Corp commissioned a study on health in the year 2020, whose results were released yesterday. That study predicts that fully 1/2 of all Americans will be type 2 diabetic by the year 2020.

    We'd all do well to look like athletes. It's a VERY GOOD THING.

    The body makes various adaptations contingent to environment.

    i'd say it's cause the guys w/ big a strong jaw are also total studs, most are pretty hung, (and incredible fucks) so if u fall in that category, well, u should hit me up ; )

    Actually, many people with weak jaws/chins have a malocclusion in their bite (class 2) which is often caused by "mouth breathing" during their growth years (adolescence). Mouth breathing causes the bone structures of the face to be underdeveloped as the air does not move properly through the sinuses (via the nose) throughout growth, compromising oxygen flow to the organs/brain. Mouth breathing is caused by allergy problems/chronic nasal obstruction.

    Proper physical form/function of the facial structures grant one a strong capacity for hard work and labor (i.e. sports; bodybuilding) due to the body's proper movement of oxygen.
