Legitimate beer guts

If you are a professional cyclist you have an excuse for a beer gut:

Spaniard Miguel Indurain, who took five successive titles, had lungs so big they displaced his stomach, leading to his trademark paunch.

Indurain’s lung capacity was eight litres, compared to an average of six litres.
Lance Armstrong’s heart, like that of many other athletes, is thought to be 30% larger than average.He had a resting heart rate of 32-34 beats per minute (the average for males is 70 and 75 for women)
