I went to see the weights of a few of my favorite socccer players, and i noticed that they weigh quite a lot, meaning to what I thought they would weigh. How come they weigh so much? Is it because of their bones, muscle, or what is it? This has been on my mind for a while.

its defenantly muscle man. muscle weighs more than fat, and I imagine that they have very strong bones so probably it weighs more too.

i don't think bones have much to do with it, but its muscle, definitely. freddy adu weighed 130 lbs before he turned pro or whatever and he worked out a ton and put on 10 lbs of muscle. or something like that.

yeah i know, i heard that 2 pounds of muscle is equivilent to like a pound of fat. But i just didnt know why they weighed so much cuz they dont really look that muscular, but the more i think of it, the more i think the muscles probobly in their legs, and their bones gotta be stronger then the average persons too. thanx for the answers, this has been on my mind for a while.

I though DeMarcus weighs only like 126 or 130, he did during the world cup. But he's in the minority.
