    I keep my armpits trimmed hehe just because I think it looks HORRIBLE with hairy armpits. I shave my biceps with a razor. And thats about it. My chest/abs arent really hairy. My legs are hairy but I its too much trouble to keep them trimmed. When they were trimmed they looked a LOT more ripped but oh well.

    1. hairdressing clippers, it cuts the hair just above the skin and you get no rash.
    2. yes
    3. trim to about 1/4 inch
    4. yes, everywhere.

    that being said, trimming bodyhair and a slight tan will make you look alot differant and I for one like it.

    AGREED. Everything trimmed and a tan will make you look a LOT different.



    ... How often do you trim everything bro?

    no ...1/4 inch under arms, and the clippers right on the skin without any attachment for the rest if the body. This leaves just about nothing left above the skin. You will need help with certain areas.

    I think I am just going to go with 1/4" - 1/8" all over. And shave my biceps with a razor of course hehe. I am going to trim my whole body once every 2 weeks or so.

    I shave my armpits, just cause I think it looks better. I shaved my forearms and biceps once, it's growing back now, kinda looks funny. I had shaved other things before, and the hair came back in nomral. But on my arms it looks sparser, like it's not all growing back...

    But anyway, yeah I shave not in season. My stomache isn't that hairy, but I shave what little is there. I shave my biceps, and armpits

    Shave your face. If you aren't competing or looking like your father was a gorilla this is sufficient.

    Well, my pics should indicate my feelings on the subject. I have never been into the bother of shaving unless I was going to compete. I suppose it is a completely personal decision.

    Yeah I know what youre saying bro. I shaved my entire upper body today with 1/8" blade, pretty close, and my lower body with 1/4" blade. Going to do so every 2 weeks to make sure when summer comes around I am hairless, ripped, and tan!

    You can also use chemical hair-removal cream, which is available without a prescription in most drug stores. But you should experiment with it on a small area of your body before using it all over. Allergic reactions are not uncommon, and there is an abrasive quality to these lotions that can leave skin red or blotchy.

    Most bodybuilders like to shave down the first time while sitting in a tub of hot, soapy water, the way most women shave their legs. Simply use a safety razor over all of the hairy sections of your body, getting help to defur your back. After the first shaving, you can use an electric razor a couple of times each week to keep new hair from growing out of control.
    If shaving down in a tub doesn't appeal to you, an alternative method is dry shaving with a safety razor. This method is notorious for causing a few nicks and scrapes if you fail to do it very slowly and carefully.
