I'm right behind J Rich on a couple things and then I'm flat out our strongest person, all opinions aside, I've proved it enough. But when you look at me I look just fat and lazy. I lift, I run, And I'm pretty bad compared to most of my people around me. Wow I got off subject there. I just meant to say that I think big is when your arms don't look right and u can stand on ur tiptoes and make ur calves look like they on the ocean from all the waves, dips, and bulges.
    Hey I'm not haten on the linemen bro, I was one.

    played from 10th grade on at 280+ peaking at just over 300 pounds and being 5'9. I looked gigantic in my uniform compared to almost any other player in the league

    I'm just saying someone who's 5'0 and weighs 300 pounds isn't OMFG HUGE he's OMFG FAT!!

    That Trace Adkins is a hoss, boy. There's a couple of other country singers that are hosses, too.

    This too is assuming you have a decent amount of muscle mass and your not just a marshmallow.

    Thats what I consider big anyhow.
    I'm 5'4, 171, 18% body fat... I'm.... big?

    Sure doesn't feel like it.

    That's awesome.

    And don't consider yourself big when you can't do this?

    I got a dumb question, but how are you physically incapable of wiping yourself if you put on weight? I mean really, how much weight would you need to put on before you couldn't wipe? Also, is it because your cheeks just get too big? I've always wondered what you guys mean when you say that.

    Looking at http://www.squarehippies.com/musicia.../trace-adkins/ doesn't really give me the impression that he is that big or in that great of shape. Although taking his age into consideration, he's not doing bad at all.

    I'm assuming it's the thickness and width of lats, arms and glutes.

    Yeah, I remember reading about that. I'm definitely not knocking the guy. For his age and other said circumstances, he is doing damn good. On top of that, love the guys music.

    Not no 10% at 265 though.

    Muscle mass does not always equal strength. Strength is kindness and sensitivity. Strength is understanding that your power is both physical and emotional. That it comes from the body and the mind. And the heart.
    This.

    Beared man child next to normal 15 year olds.
    Being a strong teenager means nothing.

    My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.

    Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.

    I can' aregue with a couple of those pics..lol

    Still, the guy is 46 and 6'6. He's got good size and leanness, all things considered. Not 10% for sure, but not too far off that. Definitely under 15. I was just bringing it up, purely because I had seen it right before I saw the thread. I think the other guy is right..whatever happened to him in the stomach, it kinda makes his belly look garbled. I never knew he was shot. That must suck..lol

    Heart and guts makes a man big, kindness makes a man big, a man who loves his children and wife is a big man. A man who stands up for whats right is a big man. That is what being a man is all about.
    A big thanks to all my friends in the USA, I am deeply grateful for your hospitality and kindness.
