Do you prefer to be bulky or shredded?
I am starting to disappear in my clothes................
For the past several months I've been bulky...... somewhere around 15% bf.... I felt good in my clothes..... looked big........
now that I am running my eq/fina/prop and cutting down..... the body weight's been the same but I feel considerably smaller in clothes.
so my bf% is dropping... but I am having bigorexia issues galore.....
so the question is, would you prefer to be big and bulky (but not fat/obese/overweight) or ripped (bodyfat in the single digits) and not feel as big or intimidating.......

I am undecided yet on this one...................

Me, I want both. I want bulk so I look big in cloths and I want to be a shredded mofo when the cloths come off.

I find it hard to get the thickness, I am naturally muscular but skinny muscular so I have to go with beeing ripped because I don't have a choice.

I'd rather not be shredded, I want to look big all the time. I don't have the genetics to have a 6 pack either, but I don't have a gut, it's usually nice and flat

i don't know what it's like to be above 9% body fat, so all i have is ripped.

I like being bulky...first time cutting, and i'm excited to see what I look like cutting .

Ripped. I've never been ripped before. I've been in between Bulky and Lean. Just mediocre. I find it very tough to get ripped though, and I like the challenge.
I was bulky before. 6'1" and 230 with a 32" waist. Looks good. But I felt like ****. Had trouble moving, clothes didn't fit proper and I felt fat all the time.
Now I'm leaning out and I'm 199lbs with a 31" waist and I like it. Even though I feel like a toothpick, I'm a lot more comfortable with my body.
When I'm dancing with a girl, I don't mind when she slides her hand up my shirt now. I actually encourage it. Before when I was bulky, I would have flex everything I had, but I still felt fat.
So ripped for me.

I like having the size, but offcourse it would be cooler being 260 at 8% then 260 at 12%, whatever.

No need for a ripped six pack here.. give me 10-12% body fat, and some ab development and i'll call it a day.. 20inch arms of course!!!! arms are important!! LOL
''I have no weak points'' NOT!!!!

I would like to look bulky with a lean waist.....I have gotten use to being husky though.

This is pretty funny. Everyone wants the opposite of what they already are. I guess the grass is greener...
02-21-2004, 06:20 PM #22
I like being ripped and big... Best of both worlds i guess...
02-21-2004, 07:37 PM #23
Well, I'll be the first to say I am pretty happy with where I am..I am hovering at 217 and a 32 inch waist..Good ab development although it is not really deep and cut like it is when i am really leaned out..No matter how much size I put on though, I disappear in clothes..It's somewhat frustrating, but it is all worth it when I take off my clothes and people look at me a little different..And it keeps people from looking at me weird when I am strolling through the hospital in my scrubs..If I can maintain my current level, I will be a happy man..

ripped and big would be nice
**** this cutting phase has been really kicking my ass.....
i doubt i'll be able to drop below 10%..... I'll feel too **** small.......

Im healthier when Im shredded. Plus summer time I look bigger even when I weigh less and I dont have to work at it as hard as trying to bulk. Im just naturally shredded so I guess I will stay with that answer.

I have never been ripped so Im aiming for that now. I think I would like to look good naked more then to feel big in clothes.
02-22-2004, 08:12 AM #36
i feel i look better ripped. but i get a lot more comments if im alittle bulky.
02-22-2004, 09:08 PM #37
what would u consider carlos? he's ripped but also pretty big. i guess ripped...

I like to be ripped and schred as you can see... on me avarar.
It's a lot easier for me to be ripped than bulky, it's just the way it is...
I know it's contradictory but more you're ripped more you look bigger,
everyone give me 20 pounds more than I'am!

It is rare that I rip out. I have always been set in mass and size. I hate ripping and feel like Im losing muscle when I see everything almost deflate. I have one more mass cycle before I go nuts on a ripping cycle..
