    Labrada, no.

    The others you posted are a bit too muscly for me, but only a little bit too muscly. Maybe if they weren't flexing or actually competition-ready...

    One of my Crossfit coaches was on the team that won the Crossfit Games this year and last. He is definitely jacked, but in a more natural, useful looking way.

    My ideal strong guy would look a lot like any of the top 20 Crossfit Games guys.

    In other words, be big, but not TOO big. At a certain point you start to look like a gorilla, and lose the looping walk of athleticism. As one woman I dated once said, "I like a puma, not an orangutan"
    Rote SIZE is not very valuable outside of intimidating other men. For this reason a lot of women view it, rightly or wrongly, as a sign of cockiness and overcompensation....even though getting a LOT of definition, if not on the juicy, takes more work than just getting big, IMO.

    I think that the size obsession itself, and the "you are as fit as your 1RM's" mentality that goes with it, is a little bubble that guys fool themselves into thinking matters.....there are few things in my life more satisfying than being across the rugby field with some overgrown hulk that thought his squat weight alone made him fitter than me, and watching me wear him into being an exhausted little girl by the end of the game.

    Women like athleticism more than size. Nothing wrong with that.

    And yes, today I am going to go lift 3 rep, 5 set, near max deadlift....and then swim an 800m. Need both
    As a woman, I agree...
    Breathe. Move forward.

    I just eat what I want...

    I don't think this is the norm though.
    Actually, most women would say they go for sense of humour over anything else.

    Not me though, I'm superficial

    I'm somehow winning the big muscles thread, apparently! Athletic and muscley, but not too huge! Victory!

    Turq just out of curiosity can you post a picture of what body type you find the be the ideal? I don't think your opinion would be too far from the norm.

    As a side note I think this is probably why men's physique is becoming more and more popular in body building competitions.

    My "ideal" men's bod:



    Although he might be a bit thin. I'm tired of feeling fatter than my partners

    Google John Abraham.

    That man is gorgeous.

    Built, but not too much so. Also his face is pretty hot too.


    Eta: his girlfriend Bipasha Basu is hot as hell too.

    This guy is better than the other one I posted - a little more body fat:

    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases."
