    Knifegill, your posts make me smile. You're always moaning about being too buff, or being able to do too many pull ups that you get bored doing them or whatever. I wish I had your problems. I think the easiest solution would be to forgoe shirts entirely.

    Slightly OT:
    Lucky Brand Loose Fit jeans- the only ones I've found that fit my 29-30" waist and aren't ridiculously tight in the thighs. Try to find them at outlets or on sale, as they are rather expensive.

    Still have some shoulder work to do before I have too much of a shirt problem.

    Yeah, I confess I probably won't be able to quit picking up heavy things. It's too much fun. Just found a cool boulder.

    Edit: just saw your other thread regarding said boulder. Apparently it's not the type I was picturing.

    The first time I get this boulder all the way up, I'm totally dropping a "This is SPARTA!!!"

    I feel your pain. I don't understand why it's so freaking hard to buy clothes that fit. I mean, I'm built like the dudes you see in the ads...why don't the clothes fit me?

    LMAO. Because the men in clothing ads are generally half nude anyway....

    I think mens clothes are made to accomodate beer guts. And well, women's clothes seem to be that way too. Buying my husband clothes is a PITA and he is not V shaped, just tall and kind of thin. I can't imagine if you have a slim waist and beefy shoulders. So.... well, do us all a favor and ditch the ill fitting clothes and just wear those kind of snug, spandexy boxers and no shirt or pants and we will all be much happier.

    The only shirts that I've been able to find that can actually be claimed to fit me properly off the rack are from TM Lewin. They have a line which they call "fully fitted" which are great for athletic drops ( i.e. you have a significant difference between your shoulder and waist circumference ). They are not cheap, but they do go on sale periodically, and they shouldn't need tailoring.

    For what it's worth, I always get compliments on them.
