So many good fits on the last few pages




Something I'm confused about: Why would anyone want to get as beefy as knucks (unless they work as something like a firefighter or pro boxer)? It doesn't really look good, and requires an immense amount of time and effort. What's the point?

The point is people want to look like that? I mean, judging from his picture knucks is an absolute animal and clearly works hard in the gym, and you don't get that large without dedicating a good portion of your daily activities to looking that way. 

The fact that it doesn't look good is your idea, and asking what the point of it is really quite an ignorant statement to make. The argument is entirely similar to when people who couldn't care less about how they dress belittle any sort of fashion and the cost associated with it.

I'd suggest there are a couple every year.

Seriously dude? I was genuinely curious as to why this aesthetic is appealing. I wasn't knocking him as a person or his personal tastes or interests, just trying to grasp an understanding for something I have no awareness of. Pretty sure your presumptuous post is far more ignorant than mine was, I was simply seeking clarity.


Honestly though, what are the advantages of beefing up to those proportions? I mean no disrespect in asking this knucks, you seem like a really nice dude and it's very clear you worked very hard at getting where you are today

It's not all that hard to figure out... Some people prefer the "bodybuilder" aesthetic. Some prefer the "starve myself to rock fashion stylez" aesthetic. I would argue most women prefer men who look like Knucks.

Uh, I'd argue that it's probably not a good idea to argue what "most women" prefer.

Anyway, people can be happy with whatever body type they want to be happy with. Reedo, I understand your curiosity, but saying "it doesn't really look good" makes your question less about some level of curiosity and more so about "this doesn't look good (to me); why do you do it?" Which, unfortunately, comes across as a little bit disgusted and accusatory.

Yea, I reread my initial post and I agree with you, I was a being narrowminded. But underneath that narrowmindedness was genuine curiosity.

What many people who don't take working out seriously don't understand, is that you always wanna push yourself to be better. Every time you go into the gym, you want to lift more than the last time. If you lift less, it's a failure - at least for me. Over time, this obviously results in that you get bigger. You can question whether you want to get bigger or not, but some people never get to this. Another huge factor in this is the fascination people get from being in full control of their body. 

 

Also, people who spend a great deal of time in the gym probably do it because they think it's fun. It's a big interest for those people. They don't see working out as a burden, or something you have to do every now and then so you can drink beer every weekend (the common mindset).

Apologies for being accusatory in my tone, I was unsure as to the full meaning of what you said. 

 

It basically boils down to personal preference, some people want to look that way. There's obviously more than the aesthetic reason, but it is an important part of it.

I like this explanation, fairly logical. I suppose I can relate to it, as I'm more concerned with the other end of fitness, staying as slim as possible. I like to push myself when running or doing other basic cardiovascular activities. I can understand how training for a marathon or something similar could be seen as frivolous to someone who is most concerned with bulking up

WAYWT

messy background and certainly not an amazing photo, but i'm really fond of this outfit so thought I'd share it (first picture on SF aswell cool.gif)

 

outfit:
 

filippa k sportjacket/blazer, cost about 30 $ at an outlet and it fits almost perfect without any alterations icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

kappahl(swedish brand similar to H&M in grades of prices and quality) sweatshirt which simply fits perfect, about 30 $ aswell

lee dexters jeans, got them as a gift and altered them for about 25 $

We need some shoes, bro! Try some beat up brown derbies. If you lack those, snag some Momas, which are nicely pre-beaten

Also, I'm not a fan of the way the two patterns interact-- best to switch the stripey top for a plain (preferably white) one.

Make those changes and you'll be a proud member of the 25%
