I was going through the checkout at the store and the cashier said "has anybody told you that you look like a powerlifter". Very cool. I said "I am a powerlifter". She said "you're built like one". I guess my training is working, lol.

I just noticed that you are 6' 8". Otherwise I was going to comment on how much LBM you carry based on your bodyweight and bodyfat. But, being so tall, it is very understandable.

Do you live anywhere near Salt Lake. That's where I am.

Did she say "if you were a bit shorter you would look like a powerlifter"? Be honest.

No, she did not (honest). She said I was built like a powerlifter ( period, nothing else or anything about height ). It really surprised the hell out of me. Usually all I get is "did you play basketball", sometimes "did you play football", but never "are you a powerlifter", well that is until today.

you should have deadlifted one of the aisles for her, and then brought her home for your wife to meet.
