    Nobody had ever called me "beefy" before. I'm curious as to whether you agree with him. I've never thought of myself as beefy.

    If you agree, tell me. If not, post what you would consider a beefy body please. Cheers!

    It means that your friend is blind. if you look like your pics you are not beefy, you are athletic and very sexy icon_wink.gif

    Beefy, for me, is someone who is muscular but has either gone to seed a bit or is working towards a leaner physique from being very overweight. It´s not really my type, but I know a lot of guys like it.

    You are not beefy at all. For me beefy ones are with thick necks and thick torso. Someone like Vin Diesel who again is more muscular than beefy. You have a fit trimmed body and I will say you are athletic.

    Not right now, Rumble, but I can see it in maybe 5 years if you put on more muscle. Pls do post pix of beefy models, folks!

    When I say someone is beefy. I usually mean that they are muscular but have some meat on their bones.

    I just thought if the soups "The beef" segment icon_razz.gif

    He might be refering to you being muscular, moreso than himself. Perhaps that's it.

    In my estimation you are not beefy. For some beefy is a euphemism for a bit overweight. For me, beefy means a big ol' hunk of delicious, muscle man-flesh. Not lean muscle, smooth muscle. Think Pete Kuzak, Zeb Atlas...

    You, my friend, are not beefy but DELICIOUS nonetheless.

    I disagree that beefy means "fat" or "unfit" (that's my interpretation of "gone to seed")...as we all know, there are different body types. Some guys are lean & muscular (runners, swimmers), some have thick layers of muscle (rugby players)...some are in between. When I think of beefy, I think of those rugby guys.

    Personally, I prefer some meat with my potatoes.

    I've been called beefy. I wanted to use the profile name "Beefaroni" on another website but a lesbian with a mustache was already using it.

    Count me as one more who says you're not beefy. To me, beefy has always implied thick -- generally a muscular guy with a top layer of body fat. Or, alternately, a guy can be beefy without a top layer of body fat if he's extremely muscular, to the level of a competitive body builder. That doesn't mean that athletes can't be beefy, but think along the lines of shot putters or linemen in American football or other sports where raw strength is of central importance. I'd say you're defined, athletic, or if you want you can actually use the term swimmer's build, as you've got a big enough chest while swill retaining a relatively low body fat percentage (it always amazes me how many thin guys pick swimmer's build. Have you looked at a competitive swimmer lately? They tend to be way more muscular than most of us thin guys are.)

    I'd say this guy is beefy:

    hot+beefy+beach+guy.jpg

    Beefy's not my cup of tea, but I doubt the guy meant it as an insult. Maybe he was trying to go for the notion that hot guys used to get called beefcakes, so logically, they would be beefy?

    You're not big enough to be beefy, in my eyes. You look athletic and lean.

    Guys that have "gone to seed" I would more likely call chunky. Guys with muscle and some fat I would probably call husky, just fat, little muscle, I refer to as fat(not pc, i know)

    Beefy to me, someone that has a lot of beef on them, not necessarily ripped, but decent tone. Extra lean beef= lot of muscle, and ripped, lol
