“If you exercise, you might get a trophy. If you don’t, you might get atrophy”

"If you exercise, you might get a trophy. If you don’t, you might get atrophy” is a popular meme. “My trainer told me even if I don’t win a trophy, I could get atrophy” was cited in 2006.

“Fun fact: if athletes train their bodies to physical perfection they may get a trophy. If you never use your muscles, you just get atrophy” was cited on Twitter on May 24, 2012.

@myqkaplan when you train really hard for a marathon and win, you get a trophy. When you don’t train at all, you get atrophy! #undertrained

Body builders lift weights to get a trophy.
Non body builders don’t lift weights to get atrophy.

If you work out a lot you might get a trophy. If you don’t work out at all you might get atrophy.
