I'd suggest from a purely bodybuilding perspective that being 5'10" at 255+ they are going to be pretty chunky lads. The chest is a relatively small muscle which has the potential to carry a lot of fat. I'd suggest if they leaned out a bit they may find they actually have a fair bit of chest muscle.

The arms and back is a different deal and generally just get bigger, but you can't really see much of some muscles if they're covered up with fat.
