galán, cuero

Neither I nor my Mexican husband could really come up with something that conveys "studly" BUT saying someone is "galán" or "un cuero", or "cuerríssimo" could give some of the idea, although they're less specifically 'muscular' terms. Let us know what you decide on; it could come in very useful!

corredor atletico.... o

un corredor musculoso... pero creo que la palabra atletico implica que esta bien formado en el cuerpo.

Dependiendo del contexto tambien podrias usar la palabra "herculeo" o "filisteo" pero si es lenguage formal creo que corredor atletico implica que su cuerpo esta en forma.

Just some thoughts. Hope they help some.

Happy translating! ;o)
