    I've left the "Build" part of the RJ profile blank because I have no idea which one describes me best. I know which ones I'm NOT, but not enough to employ a process of elimination.

    Athletic
    Average
    Beefy
    Defined
    Muscular
    Overweight
    Slim
    Stocky
    Truly Ripped

    I narrowed it down to a 'possible' Athletic, Average, Defined, Muscular, or Stocky, but how does one identify to a single one of these traits? I look at some of the bodies around this place and they seem to fit perfectly into a single category, so I tell myself I can't be 'that' because I don't look like 'him'.

    Oh well... enough senseless pondering over my morning coffee.

    I'd go with muscular or athletic. Even Beefy.
    Stocky always sounds like you model for fat-kid clothes as Sears.

    Any of the narrowed down ones are good, but pick the one you like the best. half the peeps on here embellish their body type anyway. Too bad there isn't a 'Hot' build, cuz that you are!

    right...."husky"....who the fuck came up with that one?
    I still say 'stocky' is far from flattering, and your bod is on point and sexy.
    Skip 'stocky'...

    TheGuyNextDoor saidIt is kind of a tough list to play with, so I just call myself average and roll with it.


    You're far from average, my old friend.

    How about trully ripped? Let's see if MuscleComeBack as an argument against that one. icon_neutral.gificon_rolleyes.gif

    Or better yet, Just describe yourself as best as YOU see yourself.

    I actually like stocky as a way to describe someone, I just don't think I fit into it so I'm alright with chucking it in terms of myself. I keep looking at the descriptions as they would apply to me, but I apply the word to someone else who would have that kind of body, and say "oh, that's not me".

    You could say Athletic or Defined and be in the ballpark.

    I'd definitely choose Athletic before going with Defined. I just think I have a long way to go before I'm "Defined".

    I think that just leaves Athletic and Muscular. And from what I've seen with the muscle around here.... Athletic it is. haha

    Okay, now onto Uhuh...

    I'm going with, Muscular or Athletic. Woof.

    Ugggh, I HATE this profile part.

    I'm on Tony's team, and put Average too.

    But I guess if you have body pictures, people won't even care what you put there. They have way better means to judge by themselves.

    I would "round down." That way when you make improvements, you can change your status and feel good about it.

    You qualify for the only designation that really matters:

    Highly DOABLE!

    I don't know why average has such a negative connotation. I have average in my build. I just consider it an equivalent to normal which I like.

    I'd go with 'muscular,' since you have them. Problem is, you have an endomorphic body type, which makes 'muscular' look closer to 'stocky.' I have the same issue. To actually be stocky, though, takes more body fat than you have.
