So I recently decided to post a bit on bodybuildingdungeon.com, and suggested that a kid who was 175 lbs and looking to cut should instead bulk to 200 or more, then consider cutting, so he would have an impressive physique. I was then told by one of the mods that:
“160lbs isn’t that small if you are 5’ 8” cut. Hungry4more the 200lb “standard” is more appropriate for people who are around 6’."
I responded with:
"No offense Freak, I realize you’re a mod and all, but if I was 30 lbs less than I am now at my height, I would be pretty darn small. That’s what I weighed when I was 16…unimpressive.
A solid 160 at 5’8" in my book is good…for a girl."
All that to say, the ebbing fascination with good big muscular guys isn’t just a problem on this site…heck, I’ve got mods over there saying 160 at 5’8" isn’t small. Sad day.
