    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.......

    of course everyone wants both...but genetics dont allow that....for me i like to be thick and bulky....i am not genetically gifted to have ab's i dont think, but im fine when i just have a layer of fat on me...not a gut, or a six pack....somewhere in between....i think skinny ripped dudes look funny...big ripped dudes though...thats a different story, but they are few and far between

    I have the genetics to be lean. I've had a 6 pack all of my life and never been bulky so I'm trying to get that first because I'll naturally lean out.

    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

    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.

    This is pretty funny. Everyone wants the opposite of what they already are. I guess the grass is greener...

    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..

    Yep, thats the look I want. That way you can look good in clothes and then when you got your shirt on you still look pretty ripped.

    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 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..
