On a related note, I’m amazed by how many skinny guys say they don’t want to get huge or “really ripped” or cut or whatever the in phrase is these days, but really they just look like shit in general. They’re not particularly strong, lean or muscular.
I think the ideal physique for a lightweight is a lightweight strongman, powerlifter or oly lifter’s. Look at most of the 165 pound powerlifters and tell me they’re “too big”. (They easily weigh under 200 street weight for god’s sake.) Yet they look incredible.
Why? Because they’re hella strong and they use their strength in the gym on a regular basis.
If you’re one seventy something at 6 foot and you don’t at least have a six pack your training must be seriously aweful.
Remember that the way you look, to paraphrase Chad Waterbury, is largely determined by what you have trained your body to do.
We should all consider what we have trained our bodies to do when we contemplate our physiques.
