    What are some negative aspects to being built?

    General, and specific to you.

    Just wondering for when I get that far?

    Interested to see.

    If you weigh a lot, then everything you do is tougher on your joints.

    If you are really built, you may lack some flexibility during certain movements.

    Your thighs might rub together.

    The more you weigh, the harder your heart has to work.

    That's about all I can really think of...

    Your chosen to pick up the heavy stuff a work, you can't fit in spots that you were once capable of doing. Nerds seek you for protection.

    Don't get so big that you decrease your range of motion. I mean you have to get seriously jacked for that to be an issue.

    Chicken breast boneless/skinless here is $14.18 for 6.4 pounds, its not too bad. Being big can be an inconvenience, and depending on your attitude/who you run into/who you hang with you may get harrassed. I actually find the opposite, people 'respect' me.

    My thighs, have rubbed together for years. I'm built compared to the average person but not how I'd like just yet.

    yup...buying clothes is a pain in the ass these days. I can't even think about buying a shirt unless it's at least a 2XL and you don't find many of them on the rack.

    Ronnie can do the splits still. He is 40 and jakked. As long as one stretches, and works on being flexible, it shouldnt be an issue.

    I agree wit the food bill, along with clothes that fit. When bulking sweats are my best friend

    It's only the case with certain movements. For example, bringing your arm across your chest or a quad stretch.

    I understand this. I had to have my last suit tailored to these precise measurements and the pants still hung like bags. It's just difficult to get a good suit.

    Toilet stalls being too tight. I'm not that big for fucksakes!

    Being short and built, 5'5" 48" chest:

    Clothes: Try getting a L shirt to fit. XL fits except the sleeves are too long. All the pants comments people made.

    People will always think you are fat because the clothes you wear are "wide".

    You are dead on with this. I was at a batting cage the other day and I looked like an 80 year old trying to swing the bat (a slow short swing) b/c my ROM is limited by pec/arm size and poor flexibility.

    Now I understand why you are an advocate of stretching.

    Actually, the only problem I have is beating the ladies away. I had to buy an aluminum bat.

    As a female, the clothing thing is an issue...waist requires a small or medium size, while shoulders love a large !!!! Dressy clothes are worst...Cost of food is terrible...I must admit looks from other women are sometimes degrading, esp. at the gym.
    Misconceptions about having fake boobs and a large penis are also not that much fun...
    But big upsides are not getting f*ed over by my mechanic or supp. shop clerk coz they be scared of me! lol

    The younger you are the worse it is for that. My friend is 6'4 and 300 pounds (around 20% BF) and I can't believe the shit some of the stupid shit kids say to him. He has beat the hell out of so many kids for talking shit to him.

    I have this to say though, after I was bit by my dog I dropped a lot of weight/muscle and I still haven't regained the muscle.

    Now my clothes are baggy and the compliments are no longer.
