“秀” means to “show off,” and “肌肉” means “muscles.” This term, commonly seen in media reports and widely used by Chinese people today, likely originated in English as the direct translation of the idiom “flexing one’s muscles.” Literally it means to “contract one’s muscles, especially to demonstrate their size and strength.” By extension, it means to “demonstrate one’s influence, power or strength.”
