I can add to this a little bit.
@ what i think CCarnage said about 6ft and 220lbs.
In an XL shirt (my size) 17" arms give or take an 1/8 at 6feet 209 and lean (don’t know bf% but have 6 visible abs) people know I’m a bodybuilder but from other bodybuilders I get little respect.
With the shirt off in these stats and people think I’m “Arnold” I get that a lot and when I go to the beach girls ask to grab my arms and stuff.
Height, weight, and especially bodyfat percentage play a huge role in what people think of how big you are.
a 6ft guy who is 210 at 6%bf will look bigger than a 6 ft guy who is 230 at 15% without clothes.
If we are talking in shirts, like I said at my stats people give me respect as far as being bigger than your average person (having a small waist and wide shoulders helps…vtaper)but I still think I need another 20lbs of lean muscle before I consider myself big. lol
In my avatar I’m 6ft 200lbs (roughly) and probably around 17in arms with a pump and all…don’t know the bf%.
I meant 6’2’’, I just wrote it in a funny way.
Also, I agree with you of course, but seriously… I’m thinking along the lines of the “Tank” look here man.
Hell, some people on this site thought that vin diesel was bigger than christian thibaudeau, so I think that we should all quietly ignore what non-lifters and men’s health readers think
Out of curiosity: How big would you like to be, Gerdy?
Men’s health magazine and related pisses me off. lol
I want to win the Mr. O someday…so however big that takes lol
Currently I’m trying to be 215-220 onstage at my next show in december. After this show I think I will take the following year off and do a serious bulk for the whole year. I think I’ll set a goal for myself and won’t let myself compete until I can hit 260 before a diet. I’m only 20 so time is still on my side for bodybuilding.
It all depends on this upcoming show and photoshoot I have planned for december. I have the possibility of getting signed with a fitness model agency that supports bodybuilding. I don’t think I will make that much money, but anything helps when it comes to sponsorship with bodybuilding. They will support my “get big” habit too, unlike most fitness model agencies that want you to look like a glorified abercrombie model. lol
That’s interesting, I wish you luck with that agency!
I agree about not doing shows for a while and just focusing on getting bigger… Dieting down several times a year isn’t exactly helpful in one’s journey to the superheavies
