Muscular or skinny? - Page 9

I cant recall meeting a short muscular guy who didn't have SMS. They also have a high likelihood of having a very disturbing cruel streak. Besides, bulking up just makes them look shorter.

It's all about naturally broad shoulders. My chest-to-waist drop is 6, which is about average, but my shoulders give the impression that I have a great v shape.

Finding clothes that fit me properly without any alterations is almost impossible.

I'm 5'9"
185 lbs
Waist 33
Chest 45
Shoulders 53
I usually wear xl and have the dry cleaners take in the sides and bottoms.

Any suggestions for rtw brands more suited for muscular physiques?

I admittedly have a little bit of teh ghey for the Danish Men's Lightweight 4-. FWIW, all these guys race at 160 lbs. or lower, and their boat average must be 155 lbs. or lighter.

I guess the grass is always greener. But it's much easier to tailor chest, as well as gain size in chest, than to tailor shoulders or gain size in shoulders.

It depends how much you bulk and whether you keep things proportional. As long as you don't go overboard on certain muscles, you're fine.

skinny...muscular is overrated.

I'd say whatever that's your ideal weight would work best on your physical build, but of course that would require adapting to your real physical environment.

The subtle implications within this thread are rather amusing. 5 Stars.

Yeah that's what happens when you play tennis a lot lol, my right forearm is a bit bigger than my left. Oh and for guys that want the 'ideal' body, pullups and chinups are really good for upperbody and core excercise. not that i have the ideal body, i'm somewhat short, and I have to eat a lot just to gain a little weight but hey i don't complain that I can eat all the bbq I want.

I'm 5'6", 147 lbs. Not sure about my measurements actually, my chest is somewhere in the 38 range (suit jackets) and my waist is somewhere in the 29 area (pant size). I think im getting close to SMS without succumbing to it. For me, the vigor that i put into working out is more of an extension of geekiness than anything. Then again, i'm reaching the limit of my ability to grow without drastically increasing my food/protein intake (vegetarianism, etc.) I figure as long as i keep pushing myself without eating a ton i'll just get more and more ripped (rather than built). EDIT: you know what, nobody needs to see unsolicited pictures of my torso.
