This is a Powerlifter physique. Large and muscular, but not asthetically pleasing to the vast majority of the youngsters who use this site.
Powerlifters generally do not have muscle definition, but they do have most of their size in muscle, just hidden under the bodyfat.
If he were to diet down 20 lbs, he’d get a better rating from the teenybops…but who gives a rats ass about that right?
It takes dedication and drive to get to where you are. It’s a lot harder to build muscle and strength than it is to cut some fat off. I give you an 8 for size a clear bulk. Some people just don’t get it.
It’s telling that a 3x rating comes out before anyone posts a comment. To me, I only rate when I give a comment too. I’m wondering if T-Nation can give us web stats on % of normal system, users providing a rating vs lurkers. If you rate someone a 1-6, you should have the sand to tell someone why.
