This strange sydrome occurs most commonly in drummers, especially those of the marching band variety, but can also occur in males who wank off too much.

Popeye Syndrome by definition is a muscle deformation in that the subject's forearms grow larger than his biceps. This is not uncommon in drummers with a good work ethic. I now am the proud owner of two fifteen inch forearms, while my biceps pale at a lousy thirteen and a half.
This is due to the fact that I have been playing drums for six years and have been practicing over two hours a day for more than six months. I enjoy my big forearms, but when I take off my shirt I always feel ridiculous. I also have developed some disgustingly large veins on my arms. They bubble up a lot, and when I play they get even bigger. I had to get blood testing for college last week, and even the nurse made a comment. Grrrr.
Ah, well. So it goes. In the words of a great cartoon, "I yam what I yam."
