Squats Make Buying Pants Difficult

My problem is that I do squats which my legs love since they seem to constantly grow from doing them. My problem is that when buying pants it is hard to find the right size since I have a fairly small waist for someone who is the bulking stage.

When I try to buy pants that correspond to my waist size my legs cannot even fit into them. So I end up buying size 38 pants just because my legs can actually fit into them (barely)but the waist is way too big. That is good from a bodybuilding standpoint but from a practical standpoint it is very annoying. While I am on the subject, I find that training my lats with chins, pulling my 235 pound body up for 10 reps make my lats wider, but am getting tired of having my arms and lats always touching when I walk.

I am getting bigger and wanted to get up to 240 pounds but am starting to wonder if carrying around that muscle is practical in everyday life.

Stop lifting weights…you’ve become too big! Stop for your own safety.

Are you going for some sort of thread record??

Oh, I don’t think that anyone has had these problems before.

This is retarded

No, never, and certainly never talked about here at least once a month.

Maybe he’ll want to know if deadlifts are a good back exercise, or if he could drink Winstrol.

I smell troll.

Agreed. Every post of his is at least quazi-troll.

Your posts are becoming annoying.

I apoligize if my posts are annoying. That is not my intent. The things I post are things I talk about to fellow bodybuiders. I just like to see how others feel about the topics: just for discussions. I am new here so any suggestions on how to make my posts more acceptable? Thank you

If you really are a ‘fellow bodybuilder’ you would not be complaining about your legs getting too big or your lats rubbing your sides or any of that shit. I mean come on, seriously.

Some of your posts belong in the Get A Life forum. Just because you are a bodybuilder doesn’t mean every topic you enjoy talking about is centered around getting bigger or discussions about pro BBers

I starting to think that I am getting burned out from bodybuilding right now. Maybe I should take a short layoff just to get my mind a rest. After reading my comment I must say that usually I would not complain about those things. A break might be the medicine to break through my current plateaus!

Thank you for you honest feedback!

Stop shopping at stores geared towards 16-18 year old boys and you should be alright.

Honestly, if pants with a 38" waist are snug in the legs, I want to see what sort of ridiculous quads youre walking around with. Especially at 6’2", 230.

I think that’s a good idea. You don’t want to fatigue your adrenals too much.
