    You know who's big? Brad Gillingham. I got a pic of myself shaking his hand at the Arnold this weekend and he just DWARFED me. His head is twice the size of mine. I think he's about 6'6 or 6'7 and ~350 lbs. I watched him deadlift 865lbs. He then swallowed on of the female powerlifters whole.
    5'9" 195 lbs
    DL 600x1
    SQ 490x1 (raw)
    BP 430x1 (shirted), 320x1 (raw)
    SN 209x1 C+J 250x1

    a man that works his ass of to support his wife and kids is big.

    just playing (although true)

    really depends, anyone over 200lbs if your 5'9 or under, 230+ if your over.
    2000 or bust

    some in the thread mentioned that traps/shoulders/lats make the appearance of someone look larger and i agree. but other than that if someone is bigger than me , except my buddy is bigger than me but says im alot more 'built' so maybe it all comes down to person preference?
    seriously though if you break your neck looking at someone cause theyre hyuge then maybe that says it all.

    I'm 5'11 and 225 and feel pretty small. Today I got knocked on my ass playing basketball. Was running and a 450 pound (no kidding, he said he was 450) fat dude set a pick on me. I literally got knocked off my feet, lol. I wouldn't call him big though, just fat... it was hard as hell trying to get around him though.

    And Jolly Green -- I know this is old but you'll probably look at it. I saw some of your update pics, dude you're gaining a lot of fat, I'm sure a lot of str with it but getting pretty chunky there bro.

    For guys under 250, I say big is being able to wear normal fitting cloths,(not tight cloths) and people can tell right off top you lift weights.
