I’ve been told by many that I look like a bodyguard, big guy, looking good, “do you take steroids”, but I STILL don’t see myself as big. It may be because I have around 15-17 % bodyfat, but my lifts are probably what convince me that I am not big. I’ve seen guys smaller than me and as well as bigger than me have bigger lift #s.
Deadlift: 405x1 (haven’t done it in a while for max)
My problem is my measurements are:
Chest - 49"
Arms - 17"
Waist - 38"
Legs - 29.5"
Neck - 20"
Calves - 18.5"
All flexed, but cold.
My bodyweight is 225 lbs right now and I am wondering if anyone else has that big, but weak build.
On a sidenote, my stomach is 38", but if I were to cut fat down to 4%, hypothetically, I would only be able to be at a 35" waist, without losing muscle. My stomach lies flat, I don’t have a round waist while standing, and it recently increased a lot since I changed my squats to ATG. I guess I am just feeling really fat at the moment because of my waist measurement. If anyone else has had this experience it would probably boost my confidence. I usually eat like a horse, but I’ve been feeling so shitty I am not even hungry most of the day.
