From time to time, usually in connection with various athletes, I've pointed out that the most common steroid signatures for men are (A) the emphasis they bring to the definition between the pectoral muscles, (B) humped, convex trapezius muscles (the ones running from the shoulders to the neck), and (C) notably convex deltoids, especially for Caucasians (who generally don't get them otherwise).
