4realz it kinda made me insecure for a bit but like, there's plenty of hot chicks to go around. Especially when your fitness game, clothing game, grooming game and game game is on point.

 

It also helps to have money.

Oh man if only. Buying clothes is by far the most unpleasant thing about being my size. I've got a 50 inch chest and a 38 inch waist. Basically have to get everything custom made except t-shirts.

For bodybuilding or powerlifting, the nature of sport PEDs is so gray that I'll just say something is illegal only if it's banned by your federation. That is, it is illegal in that federation you are competing in. That's a simple way to draw the line. Creatine? Not banned? Ok. Ephedrine? Is it banned by your organization? Then you're not natty. Tren? Is it banned by your organization? Then you're not natty.

From an outsider standpoint and someone without a whole lot of knowledge about PEDs, I think this is the most logical approach.

If you want to consider that cheating, why not any other drugs? Allergy meds? Anti-inflammatories? If my knee starts aching I can't nearly squat as much if I don't pop 4 advils before squat. Does that make me a "cheater"?

I had conversations with friends about the exact same thing. However, it was on a much lower level (talking about supplements and what not). What's the difference between taking x, y, z? At the end of the day you're taking something to enhance your body. Is it wrong because it's labeled as illegal? What about that nearly instant painkiller that gets injected and is so prevalent and accepted in the NFL. It's just another substance that pushes your body to and/or beyond it's limit. Lots of gray area, but it's really interesting to discuss and see other peoples views.

To be fair, my bf is higher than I'd like. I think it's at least mid-20s. I'd like to get it down to mid-teens.

Haha, I think I've said it before but I got a friend who's prob 5'7 and he looked pretty jacked riding a BMX and doing some push ups. I need to be 200+ lbs sub 15% bf at 6'3 to even look like I lift when I got clothes on.

I have no intentions to get huge since I like fashion too much for that. Thinking 200 after a cut would look decent at my height.

I am 160, but you look pretty thick. I think you a tad shorter than me though. I'm 5'9.5" so body elongated a bit. I am similar in that bitchmode phase (well TBH I have been stuck there for awhile, AMIRITE?? redface.gif) but #'s are not as huge as yours, great job!

I wish I had abs TBH. After working out and showering I sit down shirtless and it is a sad night when I see my pouch frown.gif
I never had abs in my life.

* * *
Some good development with the chest I think. Been just doing 60 to 65 lb dumbbell bench press and incline in lieu of the barbell. Once my shoulders and chest even out with my stomach I will be a little happier.

Yea, I'm 5'8 and I just got down to 160, but float around ~160-163 at the moment, but not anymore! I wanna get back to my prior ~180 and beyond. Fuck abs man. I'm just gonna get big and strong.

At 5'6, unless someone can come in under, you might be the Tyrion of Manlets.

I'm 48" chest 36" waist, have you tried Sears? Lands End is great and made for fat people.

I don't have any trouble with t-shirts/jeans. I just end up getting all my dress clothes custom made. The reality is I'd probably do this anyway, I just have no choice at my current size.

^ Speaking of clothes... We talked about denim a week or so back and I had kinda given up on the idea for awhile. Well, I miss wearing denim and am researching again now. Measured myself yesterday...

33" waist
25" thigh

I'm looking for something with a roomy thigh, but still a decent taper. I really don't want denim with a leg opening larger than 7.5-7.75. I'll report back after LOTS of research. So hard to nail down clothing that fits right without having to take it to a tailor.
