(HealthScoutNews) -- Beware of boys who want to build muscles to look like the Incredible Hulk.

According to American Journal of College Health, researchers in Saskatchewan, Canada, studied 197 muscle builders. They found that boys who simply wanted to firm up were emotionally healthy. But those who wanted to look like a comic book super-hero usually suffered from depression and low self-esteem.

By contrast, by the way, girl muscle builders didn't show significant emotional problems.
