    More intimidating?

    What would be a more intimidating look for a guy my height (generally, of course) even if neither are which one would be more reasonable to be.

    5 7, 165@6%
    5 7, 175@10%
    5 7, 185@14%

    I'm just curious as to what physique would be more interesting for me to try out.

    None of your choices sound intimidating.

    Intimidation doesn't come from a look. I would also wonder why you want to appear intimidating.

    It's going to be very difficult for a dude that short to look intimidating. I suggest adding massive facial scars, specifically knife wounds.

    I've never been intimidated just because somebody was taller, lol. I've knocked down 4 guys that were 6 foot and over. Btw, I do have 2 knife wounds, funny that you said that.

    About the 'wanting to look intimidating' it was just something somebody said at work. The kid said if I was heavier with a little more padding (bodyfat) it would make me appear husky and therefore 'intimidating', so I wanted to see what you guys would think. I'm probably going to strive for 200 at 8%.

    lol, from reading this, I picture a midget running around with short man syndrome pissed off and swinging at everyone 6 ft and over.

    Did you really have to make a whole new thread to figure out that the bigger someone is, the more intimidating they are?

    The stats in your sig (180 @ 7.5%) sound better than all of those options.

    Physical size isn't very intimidating by itself. Some of the most menacing people I've met were smaller guys.

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    I beg to differ, unless your on roids.

    Anyone that's 200 + that's under 5'8, would be pretty intimidating.

    Swoll, if you're already 180 @ 7% (12.6 pounds fat) and went to 185 at 10% (18 lbs fat), this means that you would've gained a net of 5 lbs but gained a net of 5.4 lbs of fat. So you've not only decomped but also put on 5 lbs of pure fat.

    I'm going to go with 180 @ 7% bf. You're doing fine as is, bro.

    None.

    Or any, if you're brandishing a loaded weapon.

    This thread is silly.

    We tend to think of Sisyphus as a tragic hero, condemned by the gods to shoulder his rock sweatily up the mountain, and again up the mountain, forever. The truth is that Sisyphus is in love with the rock. He cherishes every roughness and every ounce of it. He talks to it, sings to it. It has become the mysterious Other. He even dreams of it as he sleepwalks upward. Life is unimaginable without it, looming always above him like a huge gray moon. He doesn’t realize that at any moment he is permitted to step aside, let the rock hurtle to the bottom, and go home.

    Let's see what you look like now to get a better idea. The thing that I think are most intimidating would be large arms, traps, and back

    Gonna take a lot more than 185 to look intimdating at 5' 7". Tall people stand out wayyy more, and looking bigger in general even if they don't have as much actual mass.

    Just my $0.02 but you might want to focus in on a more relevant goal for your training than what might or might not look intimidating.

    I think being intimidating is more of an attitude thing.. i've met some pretty big guys who I think are goofballs.

    If you don't like facial scars, carry around an axe, that's kind of intimidating. I have a pretty nice scar on my face from a dog that I don't think liked me very much. It's gotten a lot smaller/better looking since I got it, not even that noticeable anymore. My friends always used to say it's pretty badass. I guess it was a bit intimidating. Oh, wait. Scratch that thought.
