downhillcarver:

Example A:
Major Armstrong from Fullmetal Alchemist.
He cared as much about the beauty of a well trained body, than he did about true usable strength. He was convinced that the sight of his perfect body, would inspire his troops.
He gave technique a very slight emphasis over brute force, managing to defeat stronger enemies through a combination of technique and strength.
————
Example B:
Sig Curtis from Fullmetal Alchemist
Sig does hard physical labor day in and day out at the butcher shop he owns, this apparently provides plenty of exercise on its own.
He is never mentioned as one to train his body, but as the husband of “Teacher” Izumi (the “sensei” character of the series), we can assume he participates in physical training. 
————
As a result, when they finally see each other fight, Sig is impressed by Armstrong’s strength and skill, but Armstrong is completely stunned by Sig’s sheer strength.

Both are impressive body types, but one wins out in terms of practicality. 

Reblogging this one more time because this guy gets it.
