    I try to put in 10-15 hours a week.

    [​IMG] That's an awful lot... are you on the juice? If not you need to be careful not to overtrain

    When you are in shape, all clothes look better on you, even cheap stuff. I am not in the best of shape but I have recently started going to the gym at least 4 days a week and Ive noticed a huge difference in how all my clothes now look.

    I think this is quite true too. Even your confidence level will go high up..

    Depends what he does. It's too much if he is lifting seriously. OTOH some people walk on the treadmill [​IMG]

    I wear clothes to make me look good, not to look good in my clothes.

    So yes, I workout fairly regularly, and it's partly to make me feel good about being fit and strong, but mainly so that i look good.

    Then i wear clothes which subtly highlight my good points. Not like wearing douche tight singlets and shit, but slim fitting t-shirts etc look good.

    Leg work is the best. Deads and squats are fun .

    olympic weightlifting is my sport of choice - i do it for fun primarily, fitness secondary.
    down side is disproportionately big thighs and glutes which makes off the rack all but impossible.
    trying to find an off the rack suit which fit was an intensely frustrating excersize and led me to my first tailor.

    I have another related question.

    I'm at the point where If I keep working out certain areas of my body (shoulders, chest, mainly), I'm definitely gonna have to go up a size in clothes, which will effectively render the majority of my current wardrope useless. I've already gone up from Dior-homme-type body to just "regular" slender type. I'm leaning toward maintaining my current build, while gaining weights to fill other spots (my existing clothes is definitely a concern), but on the back of my head, "a broader shoulders and thicker upper body do loook niiice", anyone else ever faced the dilemma?

    You'll find that getting bigger gets harder all the time. I guess if you use chemical helpers this might not be true but for natural lifters you don't get bigger all the time.

    I don't work out very seriously any more but I stil fill out the legs of normal pants . Thats the main issue for me but then I'm wider up top with or without working out.

    The old saying is: Diet to look good in clothes, weights to look good out of them! [​IMG]
