The good news here is Aly flexing multiple times in this video as part of her new t-shirt line that promotes a strong image for girls. The bad news is she is not tensing in the very least except in one, but the angle is bad (2:11 mark). On the positive side this is a start !

A photo of a relaxed flex.  Sad

Here is a still of where she actually is tensing, but the angle is not so good.

Here's the flex from a better angle:

Still nothing special though, she also flexes in this video:

But again it's nothing special, it's a shame because if she was in the shape she was in during the Olympics and flexed properly he arms would probably look like a figure competitors, not to mention she had amazing 8 pack abs during that time too.

None of the "Final Five" girls are doing any real gymnastics now and probably haven't in a few months. So right now they are probably are in the equivalent of what "off season" shape is for figure and fitness girls. Still not shabby. I tend to think Aly in these pics is not flexing hard so she doesn't look THAT much more muscular than the kids do. That way they can identify with and not feel so, weak shall I say, next to her. The true test, as always, if an interviewer in a one on one with her asks her to flex and how she responds.

If you are talking about the one at the 42 second mark, that had potential to be a nice one but the camera cut away much too early.  Angry

I also remember her saying something in an interview after the olympics about being bullied when she was younger by the boys in her school for being too muscular calling her manly and saying she takes steroids.

She says she's proud of her body now but it seems it's still only when she's made to look as "feminine" as possible or when her muscle mass has decreased dramatically. I think she's still embarrassed to flex when her biceps will actually pop out because she still doesn't want people to see her as "manly".

The fact that she posed for Sports Illustrated in skimpy swimsuits is a good indicator that she is now comfortable with her physique.

Not really because again those pics are supposed to show her as traditionally "feminine" despite having muscle. I doubt she would show off her muscles just for the sake of being muscular.
