I got way more attention from ladies when I was like 145lbs. Now that I'm 195lbs at 5'7" I feel like a smaller amount of girls appreciate that bulk. Girlfriend loves it and I feel practically married at this point, so mostly just doing whatever makes me happy. Although I'm considering cutting down to 175lbs after this weightlifting meet just to see if I prefer being a leaner lifter.
exactly, you gotta do what makes you happy, being lean with some bulk and veins on top of my biceps is the perfect combo for my tastes
hopefully when the weather cools off the gym will be less packed and i can get my squat up to 315 by spring and deadlift at least that much but i'm not trying to break records i just focus on proportions
i have two gangster (literally) homies at the gym who bench 365 and 405 but they can't lift shit on anything else bc all they do is bench
