Right now any shirt does that, I'm in a transition phase and just embracing it.

Just woundering since you said you powerlifted what lifts you've got?

But France is over-run with North Africans and has a very serious mal-integration problem, but that is their own doing. Other places aren't so fucked up. Germans aren't too bad. I lived in Germany and it's all about America envy. I can't wait to see France get crippled with debt...I'll open vintage Dom Perignon to rejoice...
And yes, everybody listens to American music and wears American clothes and eats American style food and watches American movies (sub-titled) and tries to look like Brangelina or Matt Damon....
Brazil? That's a shithole, lol...their opinion don't count.

Oh, but I think I would rather be in Brazil than Greece right now. Rio is not the mess it used to be, as long as you don't live in the favela, and fewer people do these days (Sao Paulo is still struggling; my cousin just moved away because she was tired of being robbed). Whether that will last remains to be seen.

FWIW, I work out 5 - 6 days a week, and I don't like fried foods, sweets, or heavy dairy products.

I'm still not entirely sure this explains how or why I've maintained the same approximate weight and build since I was a lwt. rower in college (I graduated in aught-four), but I doubt I'd look like this if I sat on my ass eating Krispy Kremes all day (not saying that anyone here does that). Looking at the rest of my family, it's not like they're particularly lean or in any way athletic.

At 160lbs I have a 270lb deadlift, 250 squat, 128 press, bench I haven't taken a one rep max yet. My numbers are nothing good but like I said four months ago I was a 145 lb weakling and I'm really happy where I'm at. I also cycle and do yoga on my days off.

I don't live in Greece and I don't want to live there. But to be fair I'd rather live in Greece than Brazil. Greece is in trouble with its creditors, but we don't have the social and socio-economic problems of Brazil or the humungous divide between rich and poor. If I was rich like Ivwrii though, I'd live in Brazil...in my gated enclave....but if I am an average Joe, no way.

^My mistake, thought you were in Greece. And yes, it would be nice to be rich in Brazil, but then it's nice to be rich in most places!

wasn't trying to imply that you didn't workout, but we all know those people who would be rail skinny regardless of how lazy they are and junk they eat.

I saw Rick Owens say that if you want stuff to look good on you, you have to work out. But then hedi slimane stated that there is no room for muscular people in fashion you either look like a skinny model or a chippendales. That being said I have shitty genetics which is why I'm trying to change my body type.

I think the style forum generally thinks I looked better before I started lifting or at least before I got over 200lb. Personally don't think particularly muscular people look that good in clothes.


Also personally I think you should either cut soonish or clean up your bulk. Harder to put on muscle or get stronger when your not reasonably lean. Not that your not now, but if you keep bulking for a while you might be. Shame US just banned ephadrine, best cutting stim.

^Yeah, once you get too bulky you start looking a little like a sausage stuffed into your clothes. Here's the guy modeling Robert Geller on Stel's site.

Those are pretty low for your weight. shog[1].gif Honestly, I would suggest cutting. But yeah, that shirt is too small. foo.gif

Sure bulky people don't look great in clothes but as long as you sufficiently cut and build that dense muscle mass as opposed to bulk, you'll look fine.

That shirt will still be too small even after you lean out. It looks small everywhere, even the length.

In 4 months the guy got a 0.8BW press and a 1.5BW squat, would not consider that bad. Elaborate on dense muscle rather then bulk. Muscle is bulk.
